How many families out there are still using their wedding registry blender? My husband and I just celebrated our 13 year anniversary and I have to admit that we were still using an old style simple blender. While we have always wanted to purchase one of the heavy duty “popular” blenders, we just can’t justify the price point. If I had to speculate, I would bet that many large families feel the same way.
While there were lots of recipes we could have made, we couldn’t resist trying out the milkshake setting. My tween just got braces this week and milkshakes have been our saving grace during this time of transition. Plus, milkshakes are a great way to include little kids in kitchen activities.
Here is a video of our milkshake making shenanigans:
My husband really loves the milkshake setting. On our old blender we would have to constantly start and stop the machine to use a spoon and move the ice cream around the blades. The milkshake setting actually speeds up and slows down so that the ice cream doesn’t get stuck. The finished product was a smooth and creamy milkshake that everyone enjoyed.
- Green/Frozen Smoothies
- Food Chopping/Salsa
- Low, Medium, High
In addition to the Extra Large 8-cup BPA-free TRITAN™ Jar , the Oster Pro 1200 also comes with a 5 cup BPA free food processing bowl which is perfect for the chopping/salsa setting. The food processing bowl has a stainless steel slicing disk and chopping blade. This fantastic kitchen tool really replaces both your blender and food processor saving you space in your pantry.
I found the blender and food processor were great in helping me make my favorite fall soups this week, especially my chicken corn chowder. In addition to all the typical blender recipes, I am sure there are an endless number of ways to use your Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor.
What are some non-traditional ways that you typically use your blender?
