Baking has never been quite as innovative and easy as now with the latest kitchen gadgets out there. One of my absolute favourite and must-have appliances for any budding baker is definitely the KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
Not only does it make for an eye-catching addition to any modern kitchen, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer comes in 25 yummy, funky colours, has 10 speeds, and 12 clever and easy-to-use accessories to make anything from cake batter, ice cream to your own pasta dough.
Along with all the fun accessories, there are multiple beaters available for the KitchenAid Stand Mixer that allow you to mix, knead, whisk and whip to your heart’s content. You can also choose from a variety of bowls in either stainless steel or clear, frosted or hammered glass to match your Mixer and personal style.
The KitchenAid Stand Mixer retails for anything between R7,999.00 and R10,999.00, but with so many versatile functions, purchasing one is well worth it!
