Our number one way to eat cornbread is drizzled with a little warm honey or dipped in honeyed butter. Just delicious!
The food processor is the undisputed heavyweight champion in the kitchen. It’s got speed, power, and the astonishing ability to reduce food preparation time. But not all food processors are created equal, nor should they be. It is also one of the top contenders for the title “All-Round Champion of Kitchen Tools”.When matchmaking your needs to the choice of many food processors available in Singapore, it comes down to what you value most. Would you prioritise size? Multifunctionality? Bowl capacity? Does it come with flexible accessories — jugs, blades, whisks and more? We can be spoilt for choice when it comes to kitchen machines in Singapore. Still, the rule of thumb is to choose a processor that you can optimise for multiple purposes. Beyond that, it also means selecting a machine that creates opportunities for you to do more. Check out this article where we did a machine comparison on the Food Processor vs Blender.
