The KitchenAid Stand Mixers is a great product to have for all of your mixing needs. However, the KitchenAid Stand Mixers also has numerous attachments that you can use for all of your mixing and cooking needs. I know that they have meat grinders, can openers, and other attachments. One attachment that I have and love to use and save money by using is the Ice Cream Maker. With the KitchenAid Ice cream maker you will not have to worry about purchasing ice cream and you will be able to control what goes into your ice cream and how much of that goes in.
Now granted it can become a challenge to make your own ice cream, but if you follow the books instructions you will not have any problems. Now this product does have quite a few positives and some negatives that can be harder to figure out. However, if you have some patience you will be able to figure it out quickly enough and enjoy some great ice cream.
The first positive that I found is this is another great attachment for my kitchenaid stand mixer. Now granted I know that KitchenAid has a bundle of attachments for their mixers, but this is a great one because it helps me make one of my favorite weakness foods.
The next positive is that the Ice Cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid allows me to make my own ice cream without having the hassle of finding where to store another appliance. Now granted it does take some time finding where to store this product, but once you do find the place it is a lot easier as it doesn’t need its own outlet or anything else.
The negatives are that if you are expecting to start in the evening and have fresh homemade ice cream that night you will be disappointed. As with all good food it takes time to make. The first process is putting the bowl in the freezer so that it can get cold enough to have your ice cream. Then assembly the stuff that you need to make the ice cream can take time.
The second negative is that the recipe booklet that is provided doesn’t provide a wide variety of options. Now granted it does provide some good recipes then you will want to try, but if you’re looking for some of the recipes that you find in the store then you will want to find a different cookbook with ice cream recipes.
I would have to say that if you are looking for a new gadget for your KitchenAid Stand Mixer I would have to recommend the Ice Cream Maker. Now granted it can take some time to figure out, but you will not be disappointed once you do figure it out.
