Wait a minute…I’m getting ahead of myself. First you should know that I have been a fan of Hamilton Beach for years. HB is my go to brand when I’m looking for a new kitchen tool. They’ve been around for as long as I can remember, and that means something when it comes to buying brands I trust. In the past few years they’ve really been shaking it up a bit, when it comes to product development. Coming up with new gadgets that aren’t the same old thing redone, but really new products! It is like an oven, but smaller, faster and more efficient (with both energy and time). Sure, you can make a pizza in it. We’ve done a few. From frozen premade pizzas to small snack size pizzas we made quickly when the kids were starving. Pizza’s work out great…that was the intended use of the product anyway. BUT…you can make so much more than just pizza with the Hamilton Beach Pizza Maker.
Don’t believe me?
Just in the past week, I’ve prepared French fries and chicken nuggets, bruchetta, chocolate chip cookies, and yes…even pizza. Lunch time at my house will never again involve me preheating the oven. The Hamilton Beach Pizza Maker has exceeded my expectations. I think everyone should have one! They are available at Amazon.ca, TruServ and Shop.ca. They retail for $69.99 and are worth every single penny.
Still Don’t Believe Me?
Clean up after a meal is my nemesis. I cannot wait until my kids are more willing to earn money, because I will pay them each and every day to do the dishes and clean up the after dinner mess. When I’m finished eating a meal, the last thing I want to do is go back into the kitchen. But with this bright little machine, there is next to no clean up! A quick wipe of the included rotating pizza pan and you’re done! Simple as that!
Even though it’s great for so many foods, I will admit, pizza is a huge hit at our house. And we’ve stocked our fridge full of English Muffins, pizza sauce and toppings our kids love (like mushrooms, pepperoni and bacon) just so that when they plead the dreaded “Mo-om, I’m hungry cry” I can set them up on the counter with they’re favorite toppings and they can make their own pizzas! Once they’ve got them topped I pop them on the tray and turn it on (The machine does get a bit hot, so keep little fingers away) 5 or 6 minutes later they’ve got pizza and I’ve got happy kids.
Believe me now?
