Why You Need a Stand Mixer

Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer

You may be thinking you can get away with using a manual electric mixer for all your cooking needs, and you have no need for a stand mixer.  This is true if all you mix are eggs, cake frosting and packaged cake mixes that simply require adding water and mixing with a hand blender or fork to blend and wet the ingredients.  Guys, this is not cooking!

Say Away from Packaged Mixes

 

I am  a stay at home dad who does all the cooking for my family while my wife works out of the house.  I got tired of seeing all the processed foods and partially or fully hydrogenated oils that go into packaged food mixes.

Every nutritionist will tell you that partially hydrogenated oils, also known as trans fats are the most dangerous and unhealthy food ingredients you can put in your body.  This, in addition to lack of exercise,  is what leads to our children to become overweight and developing Type II diabetes.

Having a professional stand mixer in your kitchen allows you to make healthy alternatives to store bought foods, including bread, cakes, brownies, cupcakes with natural ingredients free of harmful ingredients.

 

 

Why Buy a Stand Mixer

 

The best selling stand mixer for the last fifty years is the Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer.  This stand mixer is found in more homes and professional kitchens than any other stand mixer on the market.  In addition to mixing batters, you can knead bread or pizza dough quickly and easily.

Have you ever wanted to grind Angus beef chuck to barbeque the best hamburgers on the block?  Well, with the meat grinder attachment, can make the healthiest and tastiest burgers for less than the cost of buying packaged hamburgers from the grocery store.

With a pasta cutting attachment, you can make the best homemade pasta as well.  The list of attachments for the Kitchenaid Stand Mixer is almost endless.  With this stand mixer, you can replace your juicer as well.

 

 

 Not Just for Women

 

Guys, you may thing a stand mixer is a kitchen appliance only used by women, but you are sadly mistaken.  Don’t forget most professional chefs are men, and just watch the food network and you will see chef Emeril Lagasse, Alton Brown use a Kitchenaid stand mixer on a regular basis.  Alton Brown even has flames painted on his red Kitchen Aid stand mixer to make it a cool kitchen appliance for any guy who wants to cook.

If you have a stand mixer, you can buy the Alton Brown Flames decals at Amazon to make your Kitchenaid Artisan the envy of every home cook you know.
