KitchenAid Mixers: Ten things we love about them

KitchenAid Artisan Boysenberry MixerWe’re rather proud of our huge range of products here at Peter’s. After all, we’re lucky enough to sell some of the world’s biggest brands, as well as emerging, niche brands we know you’re going to love. So today, we’re starting a new series of posts called Ten Things We Love About. It’s a chance for us to take a really good, up-close-and-personal-type look at some of our favourite products, ranges and brands. Enjoy!

When it came to choosing what to write about for our first Ten Things post, the decision was actually really easy. It’s one of our all-time best sellers; the product on everyone’s wishlists. In fact, as far as we’re concerned, it’s a kitchen classic.

It’s the KitchenAid’s KSM Stand Mixer, of course. And although sticking to just ten reasons why we love these mixers might be difficult, we’re going to try anyway. Here we go…

Ten things we love about KitchenAid KSM Mixers…

When the going gets tough

Every KSM Mixer is made in America, with a die-cast metal exterior. Your KitchenAid Mixer’s hard-wearing, baked enamel finish is made to cope with a whole lifetime of use and still look great. There’s no doubt about it: these sturdy mixers are made to last. And last. And last…

Piece of cake

You don’t need a PhD to use the KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Just pop in your ingredients, move the slider on the side to select the speed you’d like – and you’re off to a flying start! Each model has ten speeds to choose from, and the smart manual included with your KSM Mixer explains which speed is best to use for most common kitchen tasks. A lever on the other side lets you tilt the KitchenAid’s head up, and changing the beater is as easy as changing a light bulb – just twist and pull.

Intergalactic, planetary

The KitchenAid’s clever planetary mixing action is not only unique, but also seriously effective. The beater moves in one direction around the bowl, while the beater’s head turns in the opposite direction. The result? Perfectly combined ingredients, every time.

A baker’s best friend

Just think of all the delicious things you’ll be able to make with your KitchenAid mixer. From cakes to cookies; muffins to meringues, baking is much better with your trusty KitchenAid to help you out. You can also make breads, guacamole, pizza doughs – the list goes on. And that’s not even counting what you can do if you’re willing to purchase a few extra attachments…

Get attached

You won’t believe the number of clever attachments and accessories available for the KSM Mixer. Of course, your KitchenAid mixer includes all the basics you need to get started, like a flat beater, a stainless steel whisk, a dough hook and more, but there’s a host of other accessories and attachments that will have you doing everything from mincing meat to making your own ice cream! The KitchenAid’s clever hub, located on the front of the mixer lets you plug in all kinds of clever extra attachments, like the Pasta Roller or the Spiraliser, all available separately.

KitchenAid Spiraliser AttachmentFeel the power…

Most KSM models have a 300-watt, direct drive motor. It’s energy efficient and won’t cost a fortune to run. And, despite all that power, it’s actually surprisingly quiet.

No job too big or too small
