Re: I need a mixer!

I love my kitchen aid stand mixer! I use it for cakes, cookies, bread, butter, and anything else I need to mix. I just throw it in there and let it do the work. My aunt has a kitchen aid mixer and she puts it through the hoops and it still keeps on going. Her family is large and they entertain business people frequently. So, here mixer is mixing things for hundreds of people pretty often. I love all of the attachments for it. We can grind our own beef or chicken, make our own pasta, and make our own ice cream. There are other attachments as well. Yes, it is pricey but if you wait for a sale or goto a wholesale club you can get the price down a little. Also, if you are worried about it not working out make sure you buy it at a place with a good return policy like Costco.

Re: I need a mixer!

Well shoot. I ended up getting the KA Classic Plus from Kohls. I got a good deal on it and was super excited about it! Now...not so much. Do any of you guys with a KA make butter in your mixers? How long does it take? With my hand mixer it would take me about 20-30 minutes. This morning I dumped my cream into my new shiny KA, turned it on and let it go. And go. I ate breakfast, went to the mailbox, read part of a book...and it was just barely getting to the whipped cream stage. It had been an hour! So I put the bowl in the fridge (had to do some stuff away from the kitchen). I thought maybe the flatbeater was the wrong one, so I tried the wisk one and left if on while I washed dishes and by the time I finished all my dishes I still didn't have butter, but the KA started feeling pretty warm to the touch. So the thing is going to have to go back to Kohl's...and I'm still here with out a mixer.

P.S. Any idea of what you can do with cream that has been beaten for an hour and a half? It's thick and foamy, but not buttery. Could I still make ice cream with it?
