Many people are very busy to catch up with the change and have a lot of things that they have to do. With the advance of technology, preparing food is easier today than in the past. Earlier people used to cut vegetables and fruits using knifes and it takes lot of time in cutting vegetables.

According to recently published report of Bonafide Research “India Food Preparation Appliance Market Overview”, the market volumes were growing with more than 13% CAGR over last five years. Indian cooking requires many pastes like ginger garlic paste, chutneys and so on. In the olden days this work used to be done manually on a block of stone with a cylindrical stone grinder pushed back and forth manually. These manual stone grinders used in Indian cooking are called 'Sil batta' in Hindi where 'Sil' is the flat stone and 'Batta' the cylindrical grinding stone. These old style stone grinders in Indian cooking have been replaced with modern kitchen grinders like mixer grinders or mixes and wet grinders.
With the advancement in technology men has created a new appliance which can perform various functions i.e. a food processor. The function of a food processer is quite different from that of a mixer grinder. A food processer is designed to slice, grate and shred vegetables, mince meat, knead or make chapatti dough, etc. A food processer is heaven sent when you need to slice a lot of onions; the food processer takes less than a second to thinly slice a big onion. Chapatti kneading or mixing the flour for making chapatti takes just a few seconds to make really soft chapatti dough. Mincing meat to almost paste like consistency also takes a few seconds. So a food processer does make life easy for Indian cooking. The latest food processers combine both the mixer grinder and food processer into one unit.
Old blenders were used to ugly and loud. New blenders are quieter and actually designed to look sleek, modern, and elegant. Safety is always an important feature in any food preparation appliance, and the new blenders have several innovative safety features. Another feature is that the blender will not turn on when the lid is not locked. Not only does this help to prevent the large messes that can occur when trying to use a blender without the lid, but also small children cannot stick their hands inside when the blender is turned on. The blender container also comes in plastic instead of glass. Unlike older blender models, modern powerful blenders have stronger settings for making smoothies. On the other hand, puree settings are ideal for making foods such as sauces and soups.
