This is a kitchen workhorse! I have been doing a lot more baking and pizza making during the pandemic and this mixer has stepped up to task. I love all the different attachments you can change out. We have also used it to make pasta with the pasta roller attachment. This was a wedding gift, which was 14 years ago, which speaks to its longevity.
We love our KithcenAid Mixer! We not only use it to mix doughs and stuff like that but we bought a bunch of the attachments so we can use it for other things. We love the pasta and ravioli maker. We use the meat grinder a lot. I love how versatile this machine its!
I love the pasta attachment too - such a well-built mixer, lasts for years.
From Pizza dough to cookies, to shredding cooked chicken or pork! I love my KitchenAid Mixer. It lives on our counter and gets used on the regular. There are tons of different add-on items you can attach to this as well! I haven't tried it, but I heard there is an add on to make pasta, How cool is that!
It's a classic because it works on everything from dough to meringue. I prefer the tilt-head model because I find it easier to change the beaters but you won't be disappointed by the larger bowl-lift model either. The hardest decision will be picking the color!
