I love my kMix. Really easy to use/clean and very easy on the eye The other day I used the dough hook to make bread to have with dinner, the K beater to make apple cake for after, then the whisk for cream. You can get other attachments, but I don't have any yet.
Think Amazon are cheapest place to buy, although I bought direct from a shop (Currys I think..) incase it ever malfunctions.
Ohhh raspberry K Aid in my kitchen. I adore it. I love the fact that it actually kneeds the bread for me and makes the most delicious quick bread. I've had other food processors before but you can't beat a K Aid. I also have the freestanding liquidisers. Brilliant for soups or hiding veggies in sauces so the DC eat neggies.
Candy Apple Red Kitchenaid has pride of place in my kitchen. I love it and use it all the time - after the toaster and kettle, it is my most used countertop appliance.
I have the pasta making attachment which the kids love to use and the ice cream making attachment which is fantastic and fun. I use it to whip up egg whites, make brioche, do the initial knead for breads and bagels, cakes, airy buttercream icing, and the easiest flaky pastry I have come across.
Ang - I find with the separate stand alone blender and the three beaters (whisk, dough hook and K beater) does me. Gwen's shredder attachment sounds interesting - Gwen is it dishwasher proof? I'd like a second bowl, a glass bowl. Mom - what is the icecream maker like? Do you have to freeze the bowl first, as I never have space in my freezers.
