Safety is of extreme importance when using a blender, a food processor, or a meat grinder. That’s why a tamper or plunger is an essential tool to utilize when operating a kitchen tool with rotating blades that can do major damage to your fingers and hands. Mostly made of plastic, tampers and plungers come in various shapes, sizes and colors to fit different makes and models of blenders, food processors , and meat grinders.
When looking for a replacement to a tamper or plunger, the most important place to start is to consult a user manual to the kitchen device to make sure which shape and size to choose. Nothing is worse than making a rash decision on a replacement part only to find out you’ve made the wrong selection.
