- thanks, I guess I thought stick mixers and hand mixers did the same thing! Is there an appliance that does the job of a food processor and cake mixer or no (I really am new to this cooking thing)?
one looks great by the way.
My food processor can do cake batches and whipping but personally I prefer my stand mixer for cakes and whipping and beating and my processor for slicing, dicing, blending etc. They both sit pretty on my kitchen bench and I find I use them a lot more this way then if they where in my cupboard. But that is me, there is a whole world of ladies/men who have brought into the TMX/thermo world that swear by it. Personally (and I have tried it) I wouldn't buy one because I found it a PITA to actually use and it didn't really save me much time. (Rissotto these days can be done in most rice cookers in the same time. My rice cooker cost $79 and is a much bigger bowel then the thermo's bowels. Which means when making rice for a tribe I only need to put in one lot not two which my MIL needs to do)
ETA: my stand mixer can also buy attachments that allow it to mince, shread veg as well. But same thing, I do prefer to use my food processor to take care of the mincing and the slicing.
