Just have to say to all in CC World, "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!"
I FINALLY have my very own Kitchen Aid Mixer!!
Thank You & Good Night.
Now I feel like a Giddy School Girl whose boobies finally grew in! Can anyone relate?! Now, what's the tips, tricks, & trade-off's? I would love to hear back from my CC Fam.
Congratulations!!! That's the day that changed my life! I believe none of my cake decorating would have been possible without it. It shall bring you great joy.
I got my first KA just this last Christmas. My mom and sis thought I was nuts because I kept hugging it And I was beaming like a mad woman.
One thing I didn't like at first was that mine (model name is something like HD Profesional) has the arms that hold the bowl. You turn a lever to lower the bowl and raise it. I don't like that you have to take the beater off to get the bowl off. I learned to live with it though.
Oh, and I was stupid and didn't read the book. I couldn't figure out why my mixer kept making this little ka-thunk as it went around. Turns out the little knobby thing on the bowl is mean to fit into the little tab in the back with the little hole.
My MIL just got almost the same exact mixer and my 2 SIL weren't listening to me about how the bowl should sit. The blade went around once, the bowl went KA-THUNK and the bowl had set in the little hole like it was supposed to. It was like the KA got the final word in for me!
Congrats. I love my KA, and I'm sure you will too. I would never have been able to make MMF without it.
I know what you mean, I always tell my husband that it was the best christmas gift he has ever given me. People think that is weird, "an appliance" but its true, I love my kitchenaid.
If you have the silver metal beater blades, definitely do not put them in the dishwasher like my DH did (even though I told him not to, but do they ever listen?)
It will ruin the finish and give it a strange smell and tactile feel. The smell will eventually fade, but the feel reminds me of running nails across a chalkboard.
And I love the cover I finally got, keeps the parts clean and dust free. Check out flameka.com if you want to pimp it out Alton Brown style.
Have fun and welcome to Team KA!
