Kitchenaid UltraPower 300W Stand Mixer

My three favorite kitchen tools are my knife set, my large cast-iron fry pan, and my KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

I’d been wanting one for years – It’s iconic design and amazing power and versatility makes it one of the most desired kitchen appliances.

I got mine as a gift when I opened my Bed & Breakfast in 2006.  I used it every morning, to mix muffins, or to beat eggs, and continue to use it regularly for any number of tasks.  Mine came with a flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip, and stainless steel bowl.  I bought an extra bowl for those times when I’m multi-tasking.  The bowls and attachments easily fit in the dishwasher and the body wipes down quickly with a damp cloth.  After over 4 years of regular use, there’s not a scratch or chip on the finish (mine is white).

It looks beautiful on my kitchen counter, and works like a charm – every single time.

Mine has a 300 Watt motor, which, for my purposes, is more than enough – though Kitchenaid makes many more powerful mixers, if you need something a little more ‘heavy duty’.

Speaking of ‘heavy duty’ – the mixer is quite heavy.  Since I keep mine on the kitchen counter, that’s no big deal, but if you had to lug it out of a cupboard each time you wanted to use it, I could see it being a bit of a pain.

There are a number of great attachments I’d like to try (like the roto-slicer/shredded) – the only drawback is that they’re not cheap.  But if they’re made as well as the mixer is, they’re good investments, because they’ll last for years – maybe even generations.

I’ve since bought one of my best friends one, and she loves hers too. If I could afford to, I’d get all of my friends one.  They’re that good.
