I was salivating over a beautiful lime green KA this weekend and reminded DH that I am due for an upgrade from my sunbeam (which has worked fine actually).

He answered "What is the difference between the two?"


Uhhhh....I don't know but I want a new one???? What do I say?

what's the difference between:

a cheap 9v cordless drill (your current mixer) and a 24 volt lithium battery cordless drill (the KA)???

a ford pinto and ford truck?

a dodge neon and dodge ram?

a chevy aveo/cobalt and a chevy silverado?

a hand held circular saw and compound cross-cut miter saw (like the big dewalt one!!!!)

a gas powered push mower and a zero turn radius variable speed riding mower?

a hammer and an air powered nailer?

a hose w/ a spray nozzle and power washer?

it's all about MORE POWER!!!! = better product, faster results (add tim tool time grunt!)

I would do a comparision of the two mixers and I am assuming the KA you want will have more power and a bigger bowl, and men tend to understand bigger and more power. thumbs_up.gif Then you can also mention you will have two to work at the same time, one for Royal Icing and the other for batter and buttercream. HTH.

BTW I have two KA's on two seperate counter tops that I have had going at the same time, especially since I do IMBC and the mixer has to run for a long period of time........but I wouldn't bother mentioning the multitasking since studies show women are better at it.......... icon_wink.gif

Edited to add: Groan .....Doug you beat me to it.........LOL

Doug... you're awesome!

KA is going to last longer than the sunbeam, too (not that the sunbeam is bad, i had one before my KA).. but men (at least My hubby) tend to think in terms of value & longevity. tell him that the KA may cost 4 times as much, but it will last 4 times as long (at least). plus, there's so much more you can do with the KA that you can't with the sunbeam. besides the diff beater attachments, you can add the pasta roller, meat grinder, ice cream maker, etc.... icon_biggrin.gif

My dad (I learned to cook from him!) Bought me a professional size KA as a wedding shower gift. In the card he wrote "If you want to do something right, you need the right tools" You could try that with your DH! icon_smile.gif

I honestly think I'd fall over in a tizzy if anyone tried to take my KA from me. Take (almost) anything else in my kitchen, but not that! icon_eek.gif

If you have birthed any of his children you can use my line...

"I'd love to have it as my Mother's Day gift, I've always had my heart set on one."

That usually works in my house, it's how I got my KA (and another year my pair of diamond stud earings...) icon_wink.gif
