It is an essential tool for the kitchen. Even though it is expensive, the time you save and its reliability make it worth it.
I have been using Kitchenaid mixer every day for more than 10 years, and I love it.
My favourite attachments are:
- The pasta rolls: I use them not only for the tagliatelle, but also to make Chinese dumplings, crackers and biscuits.
- There are 3 types of shredders which are all you need to shred vegetables, cheese and make breadcrumbs. As I shred large quantity of bread, cheese and vegetables which I then freeze, I use these attachments quite frequently.
- I find the fruit and vegetable strainer very useful to make fresh sauces such as tomato sauce, and mashed potatoes. It automatically separates the flesh from the skin, such a time saver!
- You can also mince your meat and make your own sausages, but I have not used this tool yet!
I find the KitchenAid vegetables strainer very useful to sieve cooked fruits, tomatoes and potatoes.
It separates the skin directly so I don’t have to peel them.
It is perfect when you make gnocchi, they are mashed in a flash and you don t have to burn your hands to peel hot potatoes.
If you don t have one you can mash the potatoes with a hand mash or with a fork.
Here you will find sample of the recipes I make with it:
I use my KitchenAid MVSA Rotor Vegetable Slicer and Shredder to slice and shred vegetables, bread and cheese.
Once a month I do a bulk of basic ingredients and freeze a reserve.
You can find out more about it on my article What food do yo freeze?
You can also find more recipes where I use the slicer and shredder here below.
