I know another reviewer did not care for this pastry blender, but I LOVE it! I have 4 different pastry blenders, and this is by far my favorite one. I am not sure what it is about this one, but even when I dump a full cup of lard (with no pre-chunking) into my flour mix, this little guy has it chopped up and ready for pie crust within a minute. No more scraping the fat off the ends of the pastry blender, and no more tired hands from long mixing times. Even the way the sides of this blender are shaped was well thought-out, as they easily get to the edges of the bowl. I make an average of 2 pies a week, and this is now the only pastry blender I use. Very pleased with this item, and intend to buy one for my sister
This is what your Grandma's Pastry Blender Should Have Been!
Without a doubt and without parallell, this is the BEST and MOST versitile pastry blender . . . EVER! Calling it simply a "pastry blender" does this MUST HAVE kitchen tool a gargantuan disservice--I use it for pastry blending, of course, but, it chops and mashes avocados for guacamole , it chops boneless cooked chicken into uniform pieces for burritos, it chops nuts and on and on. It's balanced, strong and its design was clearly and cleverly conceived and put to practice. It is one of those kitchen tools that, once you have in your possession, you'll find a multitude of cooking tasks that are made simple and fast by this superior chef's tool. Good cooking to all!
I purchased this product based on the glowing description that came with it. I'm always looking for an improvement on the basic pastry blender, because I bake professionally and use one everyday. It was awkward to use, making the process more lengthy. I gave it three different tries and each time had to use my regular tool to finish the job. Considering the price and how highly it was recommended, it's a shame I'm throwing it in the trash
