We have been making and evolving gelato recipes on this simple utilitarian machine that the children and grandchildren rave about! We have been gifting it with our recipes to the family with great results. Our ideal is Italian gelato and this machine facilitates success and encourages experimentation with flavors and texture. We have settled on a cooked custard base with a little cornstarch, flavor,
and relatively low sugar. It's irresistible!

A high quality griddler/wafflemaker with precise temperature control on both surfaces, open or closed. Our great experience has made gift giving to our children and grandchildren easy until we placed one in every home. The recent addition of the waffle grids has extended our gifting one more season. Cuisinart quality and durability make the Griddler a welcome appliance.

Although it was my fault for not reading the ad more closely, I was disappointed that the bags did not include the simplest open-tip fixture especially since the photo shows one on one bag. The bags work well and clean up OK.

The glass mixing bowl is not compatible with aftermarket beaters that "wipe the bowl" since interior dimensions are not exactly the same as the stainless bowl. The interference results in an awkward "unscrewing" of the bowl from its plastic adapter that challenges the dexterity of the operator to turn the mixer off while keeping the bowl from bouncing on the floor. The available adjustment of the mixer head would not stop the interference. The KitchenAid attachments had a slight interference but not enough to unscrew the adapter. The ability to measure in the bowl and pour the contents makes it valuable if you recognize the limitations.

Pizza Set, looks the part but

The pizza set was appealing since we bake pizza at home frequently and use a flat cookie sheet to slide the pizza onto a stone for baking. Unfortunately the peel is too thick and has a relatively blunt edge that doesn't facilitate easy removal. We had to resort to the cookie sheet to get our pizza out. As a woodworker I will plane the front edge to a useful wedge that will slide under the pizza. Without modification it is a decoration. The pizza cutter is functional.

Ideal French Bread Loaf Pan

We have tried various schemes to get the round cross section like we have gotten in European bakeries. This bread pan provides this ideal with no difficulty and cleans easily. A no fuss solution. We even found an easy storage solution in our pantry by standing it on end and placing liter-sized bottles in the curved region.

New Beater Blade Beats Them All
PostedDecember 27, 2010

The KitchenAid solid design is hard to improve on but the new beater blade improves the basic function of mixing dough or batter significantly. In addition to the wiper action to clean the bowl while more thoughly mixing there is a subtle curve in the design that improves effectiveness in mixing bread dough and makes the transition to a dough hook later and easier!
