The Mixer For All Needs!

This commercial series is the mixer to invest in. I have a small home based business, and after talking with KitchenAid, I found out that this is the only mixer they will cover in my situation of owning a home based business. Because I use my KitchenAid daily, or almost daily, and occasionally for business they told me that this would be the only mixer they would cover under warranty. Even though this mixer doesn't have the higher horse power it mixes beautifully. It has a longer cord, which I need because of space. All of the attachments are universal and operate the same as with any other machine. Best Mixer For the Money!.

I had a wooden drying rack that did come apart for storage and then I had to search for all of the pieces to put it together each time I needed it. This one comes in a tube so you don't lose parts. Most of the drying racks out there don't collapse down so they are cumbersome in space to store. This just slides into you drawer with you knives, and the rest of your cooking supplies. The only thing I wish that it had was longer arms and it could be a little taller. The low racks are just a little short.

I now have all of the KithcnAid attachments, and use them daily. The grinder has so many uses. I can make Chicken salad or a ham salad in just a few minutes. I also use it to make a fresh cranberry relish to serve with a turkey sandwich. The slicer and shredder work perfect for salads with just minutes for clean-up. The pasta plates are great too, but having the ravioli attachments I find I use that more than the disks. They just slide into the front of the mixer the turn of the screw and away you go. You would have to clean a knife and a cutting board, so this truly is a time saver. Get a professional job using these!

This mixer sounds differently then my other KitchenAid mixers do. It is a little louder, but really mixes the product very well. All of the attachments work the same on this mixer as my other 3 KitchenAid Mixers. A few years ago I was making double batches in my 4 1/2qt. mixer. I had to finish mixing them by hand. Now I can make a triple batch and it thoroughly mixes everything. I also have the 5qt, commercial until, the reason for this is I have a very small business, I do small parties a few times a year, and if you don't use that unit KitchenAid won't cover your mixer! So make sure you purchase the correct mixer for the job at hand. Also it is nice to know that CHEF'S has a commitment to our satisfaction, and the price is right! All the more reason to get your mixers here. If something does go wrong they will take care of it! and YOU! Purchase you Mixer Here! CHEF'S Covers your mixer and everything else you buy from them 100%, which is why I buy everything here for my kitrchen!

My son is a Very Picky eater. Before my pancakes were to large and heavy. This dispenser makes them a uniform size no more guess work to figure out if you have enough batter or too much. No spilling, and no more MESS! Makes them just like in the restaurants.

This pizza cutter is easy to hang on to and is light weight enough for my 6yr old grandson to cut with it. Be carefull because it is sharp though! I have my own business, and I having 2 of them I use it to cut sanwiches. Works Great. and for the price... well I think this is a "steel"!

I love this set! I now made pasta all the time. My son and I are vegatarians, so I fill the ravioli with all kinds of chees tofu and even a mixture of brocoli and cheese. He loves it and so do I, my son is sooo picky and this is the answer to my prayers! KitchAid does it RIGHT!

Fresh Custard Any Time!
PostedJanuary 9, 2009

Charlie
fromMilwaukee, Wisconsin
My folks owned a custard shop... so thinking I am an old pro at making it, I thought why not try it in this maker. Simply Aw some! I got the mix form my friend who bought our restaurant and it was so easy! I just dumped in the mix and away I went. I keep the bowl in the freezer ALL THE TIME! When friends doped over during the holidays we sat around the kitchen table and while talking I whipped up a batch of Chocolate Mint Custard. Over a brownie, YUMMY! We then thought that I should have made just Vanilla. So this week when we all get together again I will just reserve a portion of the vanilla custard and make the rest raspberry, as requested! Fresh Custard is the only way to eat it, and this bowl is the only way to go. I can sacrifice the freezer space for anything I really love.

I have priced ramekins everywhere, these little babies are a find. If you own a small business like I do, I don't want a huge case of these laying around. These are perfect for all of the sweet little deserts. They cook evenly and are durable from the freezer, to the oven, to the dishwasher. They don't chip even when droped on a ceramic tile floor, I have done it! Buy these you won't regret it! these will save you money just in brackage alone!
