Attention, gentlemen. Your mother, bless her, owned a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. She used it for cookies and cupcakes. You don’t bake cookies or cupcakes, so you might see no need to make the investment. Don’t be daft.

A KitchenAid Stand Mixer is the fundamental kitchen appliance.  It does what you’d expect: mixes, stirs, beats, and kneads. But, what distinguishes it is how it does what it does. This machine is a draft horse. It’s sturdy, brawny, and industrious.

It glides through basic tasks like mixing pancake batter and beating eggs. It dominates tough jobs like kneading pizza dough. And, it does this without catching fire. A claim some other brands cannot make.

Equally impressive, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer lets you harness its power for non-mixing activities. We use the meat grinder attachment to make fresh hamburger and sausage. Want to impress? Serve your friends homemade bratwurst stuffed with homegrown basil.

We have the fruit and vegetable strainer attachment. It transforms our Roma tomatoes into pasta sauce.  And, after infusing liquor with fruit, we use the attachment to filter out the drinkable concoction.

KitchenAid offers other attachments. You can get a pasta roller, rotor slicer, ice cream maker, and more. We don’t own these but would gladly add them to our collection.

Trust us, gentleman to gentleman: if you do anything in the kitchen, a KitchenAid Stand Mixer will help do it better.
