I love my KitchenAid mixer because it does so much more than, well, mixing.
If I’m just whipping up a cake mix I’ll take out my hand mixer rather than deal with my big stand mixer. The KitchenAid is used for bigger, better kitchen projects.
I’ll start by saying that I have a different mixer than the one I’m giving away below. I bought a KitchenAid Professional Series Stand Mixer 11 years ago and it’s still going strong.
At the same time, my mom and my aunt both have the KitchenAid Artisan Series Mixer like the one I’m giving away. I could easily use that model instead of the one that I have and be just as happy with it!
What sort of things do I use my KitchenAid mixer for?
Bread dough: I own a bread machine, but I think using my KitchenAid mixer to make bread dough is so much faster and easier than using the bread machine.
The dough hook included with KitchenAid stand mixers is magical. Just mix all your dough ingredients together (like those from the best pizza crust recipe) and let the mixer run with the dough hook for the number of minutes you’re supposed to knead.
Homemade pasta: I bought the KitchenAid pasta maker attachment set a few years ago and I’ve had a blast making homemade fettuccine and spaghetti.
The best thing I’ve made with it is homemade ravioli. I’ve made ravioli by hand at a friends before, and it’s quite a job! The KitchenAid Ravioli Maker doesn’t eliminate all the work but it turns ravioli-making into a manageable project.
Meat grinding: We received the KitchenAid Food Grinder attachment as a wedding gift over 10 years ago. It’s not one that I use often, but it’s one of those things that makes me so happy when I need it.
I’ve used the food grinder to grind up chicken breasts for my Caprese Stuffed Chicken Burgers. I’ve turned steaks I bought at deep discounts into premium ground beef for recipes like Chipotle tacos.
All in all, my KitchenAid mixer is a workhorse in my kitchen, and I’m excited to give one away!

What fun the mixer and I would have as we whip out some amazing creations for my little ones to eat. They would think I was the most amazing mom in the world. I would secretly bask in their compliments while on the inside praising my kitchen aid. Oh the possibilities make me happy.

Love using my kitchen aid but time to pass it down to my daughter or else give her the new one. Absolutely love the azazing colors. These mixers are so versatile, can make any thing from bread to big batches of cookies with my granddaughters. It will be put to use in so many ways if I win it. Thank You….

I would love to win this mixer because I just started my own Bake Shop, Jessica’s Bake Shop – Love at First Cookie! I graduated from Texas State University last May and am hoping to make my dream of having a store front Bake Shop come true. I bake every single night, fulfilling orders, after I get home from my full-time marketing job and having this mixer would be a tremendous help! Thank you for this chance! P.S. I’m loving the Raspberry color 🙂

I would like to have this mixer, the pink one. I would make some chocolate chip cookies with it.
I am a baker and this would be perfect.
