Meat Grinder
Meat grinders are wonderful for those who like to use their own choice cuts of meat for recipes that use ground beef, ground pork, ground chicken, ground turkey or even ground fish! Grinding your own meats will also allow you to prepare your food with leaner meat, should you desire. There are a few styles of meat grinders out there, including attachments made for electric mixers.
Meat Pounder
Meat Pounders are used for pounding down meat into thinner slices, such as chicken, steak and pork. This not only creates thinner cuts, it tenderizes the meat and allows it to cook more quickly. Thinner pieces of meat are also often used to stuff with a variety of fillings, simply by folding the thin piece of meat over your ingredients, such as cheese, chopped meats, stuffing and vegetables.
Meat Thermometer
If you enjoy roasting meats such as turkey, pork or beef, then a meat thermometer is a must! Meat thermometers allow you to check the internal temperature of the meat, which is the best way to determine how long your meat should be cooked. Rather than risking an undercooked or overcooked result, using a meat thermometer will tell you when you've reached the perfect doneness.
Sometimes you only need to chop or grind a small amount of ingredients such as nuts or seeds, and placing them into a food processor or even a small food processor isn't effective because the food sits below the blade and doesn't get chopped. A mini chopper/grinder is the perfect tool to quickly chop up small amounts of food, and is a cinch to operate and clean!
Glass Mixing Bowls
A good set of glass mixing bowls are fabulous to have in the kitchen! This set of glass mixing bowls Includes 10 bowls from a 1-oz. size up to a 3 1/2-quart size. These bowls do not absorb liquids, colors or flavors and are able to withstand sudden thermal shock from -4°F to 212°F. These bowls are dishwasher, fridge and microwave-safe, and will retain their original look for years.
Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl
When it comes to mixing ground meat with other ingredients, stainless steel bowls a popular choice, because the ingredients don't tend to stick to the sides and bottom of the bowls. Stainless steel mixing bowls are also very durable and easy to pick up and move around. When using stainless steel mixing bowls, you will also never have to worry about them breaking like glass bowls.
