Full Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money and am in no way being compensated for this post, these are my own opinions.
I’ve talked in the past about how much I love my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. I recommend it all the time to people drafting Wedding registries, it is definitely my most helpful kitchen appliance. However, without the Beater Blade attachment I don’t think I would use it nearly as much. I got this shortly after I got my mixer, and honestly I didn’t really think too much of it when I got it. I had used my mixer (and the one my mom has when I lived at home) with just the normal beater many times in the past and didn’t really think it was all that bad.
Once I started using the beater blade, I never looked back. It makes such a different to not have to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl! I feel like things get mixed better with even less work than I was already putting in by using a stand mixer.
The only thing I would caution you of is making sure that you get the right model Beater Blade to go with the mixer you have. There are a few different versions that look almost identical but fit on different models of stand mixer so it can be confusing if you don’t realize that they are different and then all of a sudden it doesn’t fit on your mixer.
I don’t have any other fancy attachments for my mixer yet, but I’ve been eyeing the pasta maker that friends of ours have. But as much as I LOVE fresh pasta, I just don’t know that I’d use it all that much since it is quite a process to make it.
Do you have a favorite mixer attachment??
