Looking for the perfect gift for the foodie on your list? If they have a KitchenAid mixer we have you covered!

KitchenAid Mixer Attachments Make Holiday Baking Magical

If you’re an avid baker, you know that life is much easier with a KitchenAid mixer. Not only is it a beautiful piece of hardware (available in the colour of your choice) it’s also a multipurpose superhero. From pasta to ice cream to squeezing juice, its versatility is unmatched. How? It’s all about the attachments! This winter holiday season, increase your culinary finesse with a little help and these 3 must-have attachments (from most expensive to least).

The Sifter Plus Scale Attachment
Perhaps the most common misstep in baking is ignoring instructions to sift the flour. But recipes specify that flour is sifted is for one very specific reason: it makes cakes fluffier. And let’s be honest, a fluffy cake is so much tastier. While in the past, you may have deemed it an unnecessary and tedious step, the sifter plus scale attachment is a game changer. Simply attach the sifter, fill the well with flour, and program the scale. The flour is automatically measured, sifted, and added to the bowl. It can even be used separately as a countertop appliance.

The Sifter Plus Scale attachment sells for $159.99 on Amazon.ca.

The Tilt-Head Flex Edge Beater
Beating cookie dough or any other batter is a chore. Your hand, forearm, and wrist cramp within minutes. This is why so many people invest in a KitchenAid mixer. However, the Tilt-Head Flex Edge Beater kicks it up a notch. Not only does the Flex Edge Beater make mixing easier, it saves you from having to stop the mixer to scrape the bowl periodically. Like a rubber spatula, the flexible scraper pulls everything into the mix – hands-free!

The Tilt-Head Flex Edge Beater attachment sells for $44.99 on Amazon.ca.

11 Wire Whip Attachment
This stainless steel attachment whips up eggs, cream, and meringues with so much ease. The 11 wires that make up the whisk, incorporate the maximum amount of air into your recipes and decrease the mixing time needed! Larger than the original whip attachment, it fills the bowl more completely, leaving much less batter or cream untouched or splattered up the sides of the bowl.

The 11 Wire Whip attachment sells for $55.99 on Amazon.ca.

While both the Tilt-Head Flex Edge Beater and 11 Wire Whip Attachment are dishwasher safe. NEVER immerse the Scale or Sifter housing in water or other liquid. Simply wipe clean with a warm damp microfibre cloth and dry thoroughly with another soft cloth before re-use or storing.
