I must confess, I’m a big fan of new kitchen products. So you can imagine how much fun I had introducing a new limited edition KitchenAid standmixer on a recent regular cooking segment I do. KitchenAid has just released the most a beautiful “candy apple red” standmixer you have ever seen to celebrate the company’s 90th birthday.
What a milestone! The mixer is of course known and loved all over the world by celebrated professional chefs, caterers, cookbook writers and millions of home foodies. So last week I showed off the new standmixer on the KitchenAid segment of Foxtel’s paid television channel ‘TVSN’.
Each show we use various KitchenAid appliances and attachments. My co-host Peter Mason and I cooked up a storm, making fresh pasta sheets and cutting them into fettuccine using the pasta roller set.
We also whipped up a moist golden almond orange cake and a fabulous apple radish salad. And what about the standmixer?
In my opinion, it’s robust, super stylish and incredibly efficient. That’s important because you need a strong machine to handle just about any type of food preparation task. And you want it to last for years. In fact, I’ve come to think of the standmixer is a ‘generational’ mixer – you will be able to hand it down to your children! I have had mine for many years and it has made more cakes, loaves of bread, pavlovas, tarts and mixed and minced many meatloaves, rissoles and hundreds of quick easy recipes. My daughter Lucy is waiting for it to be hers!
Then you have the fact that the mixer really is more than a mixer because you can add wonderful attachments that allow you to mince, grind, puree, chop, shred, slice, juice, strain, mill, churn and much more.
Next month on TVSN I plan to make bread and ricotta and spinach ravioli, so stay tuned! If you are interested, the limited edition KitchenAid standmixer and plenty of recipes are available from the Peter McInnes website here.
