For those of you who aren't in the know, a KitchenAid Stand Mixer is like a Porsche for your kitchen. It's sexy. It's made of steel, comes in more than a dozen colors, purrs and is chock full of horsepower.
Did I mention the accessories? Yeah, there's 52 of them from KitchenAid, ranging from meat grinders to ice cream makers to pasta machines. God knows how many of them are out there and made from other companies as well.
Take, for example, this (cue operatic "Hallelujah!"):
It's a mixing blade with a spatula, so you don't have to stop, scrape the bowl, and start mixing again (cue "Hallelujah!" encore). Made by SideSwipe, it's the brain child of an Ohio mechanical engineer who noticed his wife's frequent scraping pit stops while using her KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
Scrape-free efficiency for the bargain price of $24.95. Look for it online...on my registry, and eventually in my kitchen.
