Gourmet Pasta Press Attachment
If a trip to Italy doesn’t fit in your budget, don’t fret. You can make your own fresh pasta at home. This gourmet pasta press KitchenAid attachment makes it easy to whip up six shapes of pasta: spaghetti, bucatini, rigatoni, fusilli and large or small macaroni. To use the attachment, just connect it to your stand mixer’s power hub and add your favorite homemade pasta dough. The mixer’s motor will force the dough through the press, creating the selected pasta shape. All you need to do is trim the pasta with the built-in wire cutter once it reaches your desired length. To learn more, read our Executive Culinary Director’s review. By the way, do you know the most popular KitchenAid color in your state?
Bread Bowl Attachment
Freshly baked bread is one of life’s simplest pleasures. And now you can make it any time a craving strikes—with less mess. The bread bowl KitchenAid attachment is an all-in-one vessel that allows you to mix, knead, proof and bake in the same bowl. Plus, the included lid creates a miniature steam oven that yields crispy on the outside, soft on the inside loaves. One of our editors tested the bread bowl—and was very impressed. It’s a bread baking essential!
If you’re a fan of the veggie noodle trend, this spiralizer KitchenAid attachment is for you. Sharp blades and your stand mixer’s motor quickly spiralize zucchini, squash, potatoes and other produce. Five different blades create a variety of cuts, from tight and thin spaghetti-like spirals to thick ribbons. Since this attachment relies on your mixer’s power hub (as opposed to manual labor!), it’s the perfect pick for a dish that requires a lot of spiralized veggies, like these Tequila Lime Shrimp Zoodles.
Ice Cream Maker Attachment
A serving of fresh, creamy ice cream is mere minutes away, thanks to this ice cream bowl KitchenAid attachment. Simply pop the bowl in the freezer overnight, attach the rotating paddle and add your favorite frozen dessert recipe. We’re big fans of these homemade ice cream recipes, but you can also make sorbet, gelato or frozen yogurt. Pass the sprinkles, please!
Sifter and Scale Attachment
Skip the time-consuming process of measuring and sieving your dry ingredients—this sifter and scale KitchenAid attachment does it for you! When connected to the mixer’s power hub, the attachment makes quick work of weighing, incorporating and sifting baking ingredients. And since the scale is removable, you can use it for wet ingredients, too. Read our review of the sifter attachment.
Food Grinder Attachment
Have you ever mixed a dish by hand, only to feel like your arm is about to fall off from exhaustion? If so, you need this food grinder KitchenAid attachment. When connected to your mixer’s power hub, it makes quick work of grinding meats, making breadcrumbs, grating cheese and combining ingredients. It’s the perfect companion to a meat loaf dinner. (As are our best loaf pans.)
Food Processor Attachment
You’ll no longer need a separate, bulky appliance, thanks to this food processor KitchenAid attachment. The gadget attaches to your mixer’s power hub, and a collection of discs make dicing, slicing or julienning ingredients a snap. For extra precision, simply adjust the sliding slicing lever to control the thickness of each cut. Use your processed bounty to make one of our top salsa recipes, potato pancakes and much more.
Pasta Cutter Attachment
Want to make pasta like a pro? Then you need this pasta sheet cutter KitchenAid attachment. Once connected to the stand mixer’s power hub, it slices pasta sheets into perfect noodles—just choose between the thick-cut Lasagnette Cutter or thin-cut Capellini Cutter. In just minutes you’ll have made classic pasta that would make an Italian grandmother proud. Also, check out this genius KitchenAid organizer for storing the basic paddle, whisk and hook attachments.
Slicer and Shredder Attachment
Store-bought shredded cheese is convenient, but it can’t hold a candle to the freshly shredded kind. This slicer and shredded KitchenAid attachment makes it easy to shred (or slice!) cheese, produce and other ingredients. To use, simply connect the attachment to your stand mixer’s power hub, pop in the desired blade and feed ingredients into the chamber. It couldn’t be easier! Put that shredded cheese to work in one of these cheesy recipes.
Shave Ice Attachment
Cue up memories of the state fair or a trip to Hawaii with the shave ice KitchenAid attachment. This cool gadget transforms frozen water, juice, milk, coffee and more into a pillow of soft, fluffy shaved ice—all in a mere 60 seconds! This attachment connects to any KitchenAid stand mixer, even the gorgeous light and shadow stand design. It also includes four ice molds for easy freezing.
Grain Mill Attachment
Buying pre-ground grains at the store can get expensive. Plus, you’re taking a gamble that the oat flour you picked out is still fresh. Luckily, there’s a better way. This grain mill KitchenAid attachment makes it easy to mill your own grains. Simply connect the attachment to your mixer’s power hub, pick a whole grain (such as corn, rice or wheat) and choose a grind consistency level. Then, feed the grain through the chute and let the machine work its magic. This attachment is a game-changer for bread bakers. (Just like this cast-iron bread pan.)
