I just went and bought the KitchenAid stand mixer and I am LOVING it! I have been in the stone age using a hand mixer lol People are starting to love my cakes and I am making more now that I am getting better thanks to all you lovely people here on CC so I needed to upgrade lol. I just had to share my excitement hehe
I know how you feel. My SIL bought me a new KS for Christmas. It was so unexpected, too, considering the cost. I love it!!
I probably wouldnt have been able to buy my own for months, since I'm just in the start up stages of my home biz and so many other things to purchase first.
I am forever grateful for her giving me one!
Woo-Hoo! What did you name it?
My 4 qt cream one is Bessie and my new 5qt artisan is Ol' Blue.
I love them equally but I tend to favor Bessie a bit. We have a longer history together.
They are amazing...I guess I'm spoiled cause I don't know how I'd live without one!
My 6 qt is named "the Queen Mother", the 4 qt that I sent to a CC'er in Japan was named "Princess Di"
Yeah I'm still in the stone age
But I might get one sometime next month....INCOME TAX!!!
you sent your old mixer to someone... i could never... i got my artisan (pinky) for my wedding... my good friend Jo and his wife got it for US---
my dads old 6 qt pro one, that i steal... i call her snowball ( i got it for him like 6 years ago...)... and i love them both, but pinky will e with me forever, even if she dies, she can become a really cool statue...
i could never live with out them both, and i could never crank out the cakes i do with out both of them but especially pinky
Yeah, another CC'er on here was asking about tips on how to make smooth BC w/o a stand mixer and she was kind of tight on cash because she has a baby coming. I never thought I part with it, but truth be told, I wasn't using it as much as I used to because I had the 6qt. So I packed it up and shipped it off to her. She got it a little bit after Christmas. I should ask her what she named it. LOL!
I just bought the 5 qt. model a month or so ago, and I couldn´t be happier! I went to CostCo one day and saw it sitting there. I was overcome by the thought that it had been put there just so I could buy it -- you know, like a semí-religious experience . Fortunately, I still had some of my Christmas bonus left over, so I brought the little sweetheart home with me. No looking back!!!
I love my Pro 600 KA! I got it for christmas! I haven't named it... It's name will come to me one day when (s)he saves the day!
Ooohhh I never thought about naming my KA.... I'm with you mommy_of_3_DDs I think it will name itself soon enough
I have had my KA for just over two years and I am in love with it! I can not imagine trying to make anything without it! I have tried recipes I would have never done before I had it. I LOVE MY KA!
By the way its Fire Engine Red and it is AWESOME!!!!!
I finally ordered a kitchenaid from QVC yesterday. Can't wait for it to get here.
haha I haven't thought about naming mine yet but I guess I should! Oh man aren't income taxes the greatest? I couldn't wait for that to come in so I could get a KA. If I hadn't got one soon I may have pulled a few muscles trying to make bc lmao. I just got a white one but oh man do I feel like a queen now hehe.
oh man do I feel like a queen now hehe.
lol....they dont call us kitchen queens for nothin and there ain't a better product than a KA to make u feel like one!!! Congratulations...welcome to the KA world.
I have 3 6-quart KAs, one 5 quart, and the baby one, too. I recently bought the Cuisinart 7 qt, and I haven't even had a chance to open it yet! Isn't it sad that mixers get us so excited? That's what my life has come to...
costumeczar, let us know what you think when you use the cuisinart! I'm curious about the cusinart and the JCP Cooks mixers. I have a KA Artisan, Ultra Power, and a Viking 5Qt...and I'm still on the lookout for a great deal, lol. I know what you mean - I get so excited about mixers!!
Isn't it sad that mixers get us so excited? That's what my life has come to...
I know right? I just gazed at my KA while it mixed like I was a kid in a candy store. I had the grin that goes from ear to ear. It's so sad lmao
Ooooh costumeczar, you lucky girl! The Cuisinart is the Holy Grail of mixers for me! I want one soooo badly! can't wait to hear what you think of it!
All I have is a 5qt Artisan, but it has issues. I've heard that all KAs, because of their plastic gears, run out of gas after a few years.
