Kitchen Aid Mixers

Kitchen Aid Mixers have a conspicuous history to boast of. Here’s a little more about them.

From humble beginnings in Troy, Ohio, the Kitchen Aid brand has grown into America’s top small kitchen appliance maker.

It all started with the invention of the stand mixer in 1919. Ninety years later, the Kitchen Aid mixer is the best selling stand mixer on the market. They come in seven different models that feature tilt heads. There are over 20 different colors available to match every kitchen. And if that wasn't enough, there are over 15 accessories to add to your experience. The brand's first advertisement slogan claimed that the mixer "stirs, beats, cuts, creams, slices, chops, and strains"

The Kitchen Aid mixers are a great combination of power and good looks. It boasts a powerful 325-watt motor. What does that mean to the average consumer? It means that there will not be any mixture that is too tough for the motor to handle. It can mix even the most dense bread recipe you can think of. The mixer also has 10 speeds, which go from very fast to very slow. With such a range, it is easy to get just the right speed for your recipe.

Another great feature of the mixer is that it comes with a tilt head. While this may not sound like a big deal, it is. Because the head tilts, it makes removing the stainless steel bowl a breeze. It also means you won't be fighting with the attachments to get them off.

Most of the models come with three attachments: a flat beater, a wire whip, and a hook. The flat beater is just great for cookie dough and cake batters. The whip is a must have for egg whites. Many also have a pouring shield to help pour the ingredients without making a mess.

So what else could make this machine more impressive? Kitchen Aid mixers have a standard, stainless steel bowl that locks into place. The bowl capacity ranges from 7 cup all the way up to a 14 cup. This gives plenty of room for mixing up cakes, cookies, and bread. The bowl cleans easily and is dishwasher safe.

The mixers clean up fairly easily. The attachments are easy to remove so cleaning it is a snap. But just because it cleans up effortlessly, that does not mean you will be able to store this mixer away. It stands about a foot tall and takes up about another foot on the counter. Most people find it easier to leave the mixer on the counter. And with such bright, vivid colors available: why not?

The Kitchen Aid mixers do get competition from rivals such as Sunbeam and Cuisinart; however, KitchenAid out-sells all of their counterparts. One aspect that makes these mixers so appealing to the consumer is that there are many attachments available to buy. You name the job; these mixers probably have an attachment to do it. Some of these optional parts include an ice cream mixer, a juicer, a sausage stuffer, and a wheat grinder. There is no task in the kitchen that the Kitchen Aid mixer wasn't designed to make easier.

If you are looking for a powerful, yet playful accessory to your kitchen, the Kitchen Aid brand of stand mixers are sure to be a perfect fit. They are available from retailers across the nation and available on the internet.
