People who love spending time in the kitchen consider the stand mixer an essential, even indispensable, tool for both baking and cooking. When you ask bakers and cooks about stand mixers, the first brand that comes to mind is KitchenAid, for good reason. The company has been selling stand mixers for home use since its founding in 1919. One of its most popular mixers, the KitchenAid Classic, is a tried and true small appliance offering ten speeds that tackle just about every recipe, a tilt head that makes it easy to add ingredients to the bowl, 59-point beater action for thorough mixing, and a power hub that expands cooking and creating options with more than 15 available attachments.
The KitchenAid Classic stand mixer includes a 4.5-quart stainless steel bowl that's large enough to make six dozen cookies, a batch of biscuits, your family's favorite pasta recipe or six pounds of mashed potatoes. It's larger than the 3.5-quart bowl that comes with the powerful, but lighter, KitchenAid Artisan mini mixer. But it's smaller than the 5-quart bowl that it included with the more powerful KitchenAid Artisan mixer. If you use your KitchenAid Classic regularly, consider buying an additional KitchenAid classic mixer bowl to use when you're making complex or multiple dishes and don't want to interrupt your flow by washing and drying your original bowl.
Using Your KitchenAid Classic Mixer
The KitchenAid 4.5 qt. mixer includes accessories like a coated flat beater for mixing batter, shredding pulled pork or mixing meatloaf; a coated dough hook for kneading dough; and a six-wire whip that injects air into eggs and cream to make fluffy mousses and more. But that's just the beginning of what you can do with your KitchenAid Classic mixer. Broaden your cooking and baking horizons by adding additional KitchenAid attachments, sold separately at Best Buy. Slice fruit and julienne vegetables for creative salads, or easily cube or shred cheeses with the Kitchen Aid food processor attachment. If you like healthy drinks, choose the KitchenAid juicer attachment that extracts maximum nutrients from fruits and vegetables. Or attach the KitchenAid ice cream maker to create delicious homemade ice cream and other frozen treats. Count on your KitchenAid Classic mixer to efficiently and evenly combine ingredients and reduce your food prep time. It will give you years of powerful, reliable performance as a cook's helper in the kitchen.
