Who doesn't want a quick food processor tip? This Thursday Tidbit is all about cleaning food from the processor blade while it is in the processor.
How many times have you been frustrated trying to remove the last of the food from the food processor blade? There's a really simple way to do it.
Early in my food career I was a consultant to Cusinart. I specialized in using the food processor for baking and pastry. I spent an exciting two weeks in their test kitchen learning the ins and outs of this useful machine.
In my post Food Processor Tips When Baking I share much of what I learned. This Quick Food Processor Tip is just one of many useful ways to get the most out of your food processor.
Cleaning the Blade of a Food Processor
Remove as much as you can from the processor using the heavy plastic spatula that comes with the machine. Do not use a rubber spatula as the sharp blade will cut into it.
Leave the blade in place.
Put the top on the processor and pulse it several times.
The centrifugal force will fling whatever remains on the blade to the side of the bowl where it is easily removed.
