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 homemade pizza, bread, and homemade 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 homemade pizza in about 5 minutes.

There is nothing like the smell homemade 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 homework, 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 tablespoons 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 homemade pizzas.


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.
