You may have heard: there is a machine designed to streamline this process so that it's simple, precise, mess-free and essentially, hands off.
With this in mind, not all home infusion machines are created equal.
Many of those on the market are repurposed soymilk makers that were ultimately designed for, well, making soy milk.
When it comes to infusing oil or butter, these machines tear up the plants - the very botanicals you're trying to gently coax the best qualities from.
A big problem with these milk-making machines is that in tearing and whipping up the plant matter, chlorophyll is released, which consequentially introduces elements of oxidation.
This combination could create a color, or taste that is quite undesirable, overall dismantling the vision for a fantastic infusion.
Outside of aeration, the temperature is a vital factor that can destroy an infusion if not properly controlled.
These elements are critical to creating dreamy, elevated infusions.
This is why choosing a machine that is designed to eliminate these potential problems can be game-changing!
