KitchenAid Mixers - What Would I Fix if I Had Every Attachment???

I was invited to take part in an opportunity to write about KitchenAid Stand Mixerand one of the topics I could write about is what I would make if I had every attachment for the mixer. Since I do not have a KitchenAid mixer, I was curious about what the different attachments are. I looked them up and I can tell, you; if I had this mixer and the attachments, there would be a lot of cooking going on at my house for sure!

So . . . let’s consider what I’d fix if I had all the attachments . . . 

  • There are pasta attachments, so definitely lasagna and spaghetti would be on the top of my list of things I’d fix for my family!
  • ·         The ice cream maker is a, “no-brainer” – I’d definitely be fixing ice cream with my grandsons!!!
  • ·         I’m happy to see a food grinder as I love taking roasted turkey breast and grinding it for sandwiches . . . mixing the ground turkey, a little mayo and sweet relish for a ground turkey sandwich which is one of my favorite sandwiches!
  • ·         I think the juicer is an attachment which would get a lot of use at my house as well; after all, I do have three grandsons and they are definitely “fans”  of orange juice!
  • ·         The Slicer/Shredder is something which would come in handy when it comes to shredding cheese – since I like to cook with cheese; I tend to use a lot of shredded cheese. Shredding my own is something I think would save money, and allow me to use the sharp Vermont cheese which we find so tasty in recipes which call for shredded cheese!
  • ·         I’m not sure if I’d use the fruit/vegetable strainer, but perhaps if I had it, I might find opportunities to use it.
  • ·         I’m intrigued by the Grain Mill – my sister has one of these and makes her own flour; if I had one, I would likely use it!
So, if I had these attachments, I’d fix lasagna – and make my own noodles, shred my own cheddar, make my own tomato sauce and grind my own beef for a tasty lasagna which was sure to be enjoyed by my family! I’d fix homemade ice cream for dessert and make cake with my own milled flour to go with the ice cream! Yes, this is a meal my family would enjoy for sure!

KitchenAid Stand Mixers certainly have no shortage of attachments which seem to me to be focused on making cooking easier and on giving us the opportunity to be more certain of the ingredients in the foods we prepare for our families!

What about you? What would you cook if you had these attachments?

  1. There would be a whole lot of cooking going on at my house if I had the attachments. I do have the mixer, and I love it. I would definitely make pasta. My youngest son made homemade ravioli, and they were yummy. I would make my own chop-meat, all different kinds. We are big taco fans here in my house, so the shredder for the cheese would get used...a LOT. My husband loves ice cream, so like you, that is a no brainer. Not sure about the grain mill, but with 2 sons who are chefs, they might use that one.
