Why I Love My KitchenAid Stand Mixer

KitchenAid Stand Mixer in action

In today’s busy world we need all the help we can muster, especially in the kitchen. My KitchenAid is a real time saver for me, as I have a passion for making home made pizza, breads and home made pasta. My mixer makes short work of the dough for any of these. Just add the ingredients attach the dough hook and turn it on. I have a nice batch of fresh dough for my home made pizza in about 5 minutes.

There is nothing like the smell home made baked goods coming from the oven. What did you say? You like homemade cookies; well this mixer will help cut the time to mix your favorite cookie dough or batter.

 With the time you save you could be helping the kids with their home work, or talking with a friend on phone. I love oatmeal raisin cookies, and mixing up a batch in the KitchenAid is really easy.

Here is my quick and easy pizza dough recipe:

5 1/2 to 6 cups of all purpose flour
2 package of dry yeast
3 table spoons of oil or Crisco
1 teaspoon of salt
2 1/4 cups of warm water

All I have to do now is put all of these ingredients into my kitchen Aid bowl, attach the dough hook and turn it on. In about 3 minutes I have enough dough to make 2 fresh home made pizzas. Get the recipe for homemade pizza here

Some Features of My Mixer

I have the one pictured it's the 4 1/2 quart mixer and it comes with a Flat Beater, Wire Wisk, and A Dough Hook.
It has a tilt head and a bowl clamping plate, this holds the bowl in place while the mixer is doing the work. There are so many more attachments that you can buy to help you with fresh homemade cooking.
