Normally, I frown upon appliances as a present. But there are times when I make some exceptions. Like when my husband surprised me with a KitchenAid Mixer last year for Christmas! I have been longing for a KitchenAid Mixer for years but we never really had the room for it.
Yes, I had been baking with a hand mixer all these years. And it’s worked out fine. But I was ready for the jump in mixers.
I couldn’t just stop at the Stand Mixer when I got it. I knew there were a ton of attachments for the mixer. I knew I could turn my mixer into an ice cream machine, a pasta machine, a food processor, and so on and so on. I was gonna take full advantage of that puppy!
In the past few months, I have been adding to my KitchenAid Attachment collection. I couldn’t just keep them to myself so here are my 10 Must-Have KitchenAid Mixer Attachments! (I even threw in a bonus at the end!)
The best part? You can grab them all on Amazon and have them at your front door in two days if you have Amazon Prime. Don’t have Amazon Prime? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial!
