I love my mixer.
A KitchenAid Ultra Power Tilt Head Stand Mixer.
She has been with me for a number of years and has always done me proud.
Ask her to mix a dough, no problem. Knead a bread, right on it. Egg whites, done in a minute, just you see, stiff as can be or gentle peaks, whatever you want.
And it is not just for baking. No indeed. You know, with some of the reports about ground meat these days, you might want to grind you own and know what is in it. No problem, just add the grinding attachment.
BTW, a tip on cleaning the grinder. When you are done, run a slice or two of bread through. Does a nice job. And you can us the bread in the meat to make a panade with a little milk for extra juicy burgers.
But there is also a pasta maker, a veggie slicer, a fruit and veggie strainer, a grain mill..a sausage stuffer!
My dear mixer has stainless bowls and a glass one she looks especially nice in, a flat beater and a whip, a dough hook and a flex edge flat beater that is maybe my favorite.
But, looking at that first picture, you must admit, she is a little dull.
Just plain old white.
She came around before the big push in colored appliances and while she can never be bright red as she wishes, (although a saw instructions from a woman online who painted her's)
she felt she could be dolled up a bit.
Well, enter decals.
Made just for you helpful kitchen friends.
So many designs.
Just google mixer decals and you will be amazed.
So, we could go with flowers,
or how about a saying?
Or a giant initial.
Cow spots or paisley or sculls and crossbones.
How about cupcakes...or a giant flame?
Well, Minnie wanted something to go with her red band, and something geometric.
She is a Classic afterall.
Not too much, just enough.
$10 and 10 minutes later..and a few days for the decals to arrive in the mail from Lil Punkin Creations on Esty...and she is a beauty!
Don't you agree?
