Okay, so ya'll know from a previous post of mine about my back problems.......well they haven't been helped by the fact that I have a 6qt. Professional KA mixer that is neatly tucked away in the corner of my L shaped kitchen counter. Ya'll know how heavy these mixers are. It kills my back each time I have to pull it out and put is back. Well, I have been thinking lately that I need to have it on some kind of dolly with locking wheels to make it easier to move. Well I just now mentioned that to my husband and he said to put one of my flexible cutting boards underneath it!!!!!!!! I just did and low and behold, it works like a charm. Kind of like putting those "funiture movers" on the feet of your furniture to move them around on the carpet easier...same concept! See, I knew there was a reason I keep him around !!!!!
I hope you keep him around for more than that!!!!
That's a great idea. How nice to have someone look at a problem from a different perspective and actually have a good solution. One that solves the problem and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Yes, I'd say he's a "keeper".
Tell your husband thanks from me too!! I have back problems too and I am definitely going to use that trick!
thats a good idea. does it stay still while mixing though??
sorry for the delay in replying. Actually, I haven't tried it yet but my DH assured me that it wasn't going to move. Still I haven't tried it yet so I would definately stand guard for the first few mixing minutes!
Always nice to have a great husband around.
Most definately!!!!!!! He helps me with most of my edible images as well as far as finding graphics!
I agree, the man is brilliant!
I have the same deep corner counter and had the same problem. I put mine on a vinal placemat that I cut to fit underneath so you cant see it. I put the placemat upside down...slick side on counter. I slides in and out easily and yes it stays put when mixing.
To officially answer the sliding around question...nope, stays put!!!!!
It's so much easier on my back to do that!
