KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer
Number Two on my list of Things I Can’t Live Without (or at least really, really, really wouldn’t want to live without) is my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I love to cook — you know that — but I didn’t love to bake until I got this baby!
Suddenly the birds sang outside my windows — the choir in my head sang on key — and life became good — LOL! Okay, maybe it wasn’t quite that dramatic, but I’ll tell you life certainly got easier and I started baking low fat healthy treats much more often.
In the beginning, that’s usually all I used my KitchenAid mixer for — healthy treats. Now, of course, I use this mixer for just about everything (except muffins which don’t like to be mixed), but my very FAVORITE reason why this is on my Things I Can’t Live Without list is because of how easy it makes healthy homemade breads and pizza dough!
Prior to owning a KitchenAid Mixer, I had tried making bread the old fashioned way — kneading it by hand. I can’t tell you why exactly, but just about every loaf I ever kneaded by hand was a flop. So then I tried making bread in a bread machine. Three different bread machines to be exact. I wasn’t happy with the results of any of them! More money down the drain!
Finally, after owning my Kitchenaid Mixer for over two years, I decided to try out the dough hook to see what it actually could do — and TA DA!!!
- Perfect bread dough!
- Elastic and beautiful!
- Quick and easy!
- And so foolproof that even I’VE never had a failure!
Once I realized how easy it was to make a perfect loaf of bread, I moved onto pizza dough!
- Equally easy.
- Chewy, delicious, healthy pizza crust, after pizza crust!
My KitchenAid Mixer is a Workhorse!
I’ve had mine for many years now and it doesn’t have so much as a squeek. I couldn’t be happier with it and I highly recommend it. It’s been worth it’s investment several times over — in fact, I’m sure I’ve saved far more money on baked goods than I paid for my KitchenAid mixer.
