Describe something you bought that was difficult to use at first.

As the industrialization is practiced on a large scale, a wide array of product choices at economical prices are being offered to the consumers. That is why, customers often get fascinated towards the creature comforts and spend extravagantly. However, this is leading towards a consumerist society which is not at all beneficial in any sense. Anyways, I am a shopaholic too who often purchase articles just by looking at their magnificent outer looks. Here I would like to share my experience when I bought a food processor which rather being a helping hand became a problem initially.

Three months ago, I bought a Philips food processor for my kitchen which was of Rs10,000. I was elated to have it because of its trendy and stylish look and a great deal of features it offered. Although I had a mixer grinder at my home, I bought this one to prepare healthy things for my family. Actually due to covid crisis, we were confined to our homes only and enjoyed eating together the most. Everybody turned out to be a chef those days as it was hard to kill the time and youtube was flooded with plenty of salubrious lockdown receipes. So I thought of trying my hands on cooking healthy cuisines which I either found on youtube or on a popular food channel, livingfoodz.

This food processor offers a variety of features like chopping, grating, grinding, juicing, blending and many more. I was excited so I unwrapped it at once and started assembling it. Afterwards, I tried chopping vegetables but it didn’t work properly. I was disappointed and concerned too. Then, I assembled it again with the help of youtube video where it was clearly instructed that how it is to be done. To me, the most challenging part was assembling it correctly and setting it to different modes. I was really perplexed to operate it as there were so many features and accessories. Thankfully, me and my brother sorted it out with some more videos and its manual.

Now I can use it efficaciously and make soups, sauces, smoothies etc. frequently for all. I have also learnt to knead the dough in it which again is beneficial for me as it saves a lot of time. Everyone now accolades me for my culinary skills, all thanks to this powerful compact machine.
