One of the best gifts I received at one of my wedding showers is my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. It is not just a prop on my counter, I use it at least once a week.
The only thing that I do not like about the mixer is stopping it to scrape down the sides while mixing.
If you only bake every once in a while, it probably doesn’t bother you. I bake a lot and when I heard about this BeaterBlade, I knew I had to have it!
The BeaterBlade is basically a flat beater plus a scraper all in one. So as it mixes, it scrapes the sides and the bottom of the bowl.
I ordered it from Amazon.com the other day and waited patiently to receive it. I was so exited to try it out this weekend.
Of course I thought it was going to be life changing, and of course when I first started up the mixer, I noticed that it didn’t work perfectly. There was still batter on the sides of the bowl that I had to scrape down. When I did stop it and scrape it down, I could tell that it wasn’t nearly as thick as it normally was.
I started it up again, and it started working really well. It saved me so much time! I love this BeaterBlade and recommend it to anyone that bakes a lot.
There is an adjustment that I can make on the mixer- I can lower the blade little, but that requires a screwdriver…. so we’ll see if I get to that or not. If not, I’m still very happy with this product!
