Get The Most Our of Your Mixer With The Best KitchenAid Attachments
A KitchenAid stand mixer has even greater versatility because there are so many mixer attachments available.
Not only does it take care of all the mixing jobs, but with the Kitchenaid pasta roller, KitchenAid meat grinder, and other attachments for Kitchen mixer models, you can fit out your machine to do all kinds of chores in the kitchen!
KitchenAid Grinder Attachment
For instance, the KitchenAid Food Grinder attachment can be used in a number of ways because the heavy-duty motor on the mixer gives it enough power to handle all sorts of tasks.
For instance, if you want to grind raw meat for use in meatloaves or burgers, it can do that.
It’s also good for grating hard cheese, but doesn’t work well with softer cheeses. They just sort of make a smushed up mess. But if you can grate a cheese with a hand grater, you can likely use the food grinder.
It is also useful for combining ingredients for a nice fresh salsa, by putting the peppers and tomatoes and other ingredients through the grinder.
It comes with a coarse and fine plate so you can adjust the size of the grind to suit the food you are preparing.
TIP: To get all the meat through the grinder, put a slice or bread or a few crackers through at the end. That will push all the meat out so you get every last bit ground up.
And if you enjoy freshly ground meat preparations, you can also get a sausage stuffer kit that hooks on to the food grinder attachment. After putting the ingredients through the grinder, you can use either a narrow or wide tube to stuff sausage casings, allowing you to make links or larger sausages like kielbasa.
KitchenAid Mixer Food Processor Attachment
Instead of taking up counter space with another small appliance, consider buying the food processor attachment for Kitchen mixer machines. This mixer food processor will allow you to julienne, shred, or slice foods like fruits and vegetables. It can also be used for hard cheeses.
There is a special width lever on the kitchen aid food processor called the “ExactSlice” system that allows you to control how thick you slice the food. It works with any KitchenAid stand mixer, including use as a Kitchenaid Artisan food processor.
KitchenAid Juicer Attachment
Another one of the useful stand mixer attachments is the Kitchenaid mixer juicer attachment. This is a masticating type of juicer. It starts by slicing the food, then processes the slices into juice.
The thickness of the resulting juice or sauce is controlled by the use of one of three pulp screens. This allows it to be used for jams, juices and even sauces.
That makes it handy not only for juices to drink, but to get foods ready for canning like spaghetti sauce, tomato juice, and more.
With the addition of Kitchen Aid stand mixer attachments, you can free up counter space since you don’t have to be a stand-alone food processor or juicer, and get the additional option of using the KitchenAid mixer attachments meat grinder.
