Stand Mixer Sifter + Scale Attachment

Bakers know that for consistent results, you need to measure ingredients precisely and ensure they’re properly mixed. The difference between one cup of flour and a little over one cup of flour can alter the texture of a whole batch of chocolate chip cookies. For precision and consistency every time, the KitchenAid sifter and scale attachment accurately measures, thoroughly sifts and then automatically adds ingredients straight to the mixing bowl. No more baking guess work!

Ice Cream Maker Attachment

Most desserts are better a la mode. But don’t waste precious counter space with a dedicated ice cream machine. Instead, get the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment. It makes up to two quarts of fresh ice cream, sorbet or gelato in around 30 minutes. Pro tip: freeze the bowl for a few hours ahead of time for best results. Homemade ice cream sandwiches, here we come! Here are the 10 best KitchenAid attachments you can buy.

Six-Quart Flex Edge Beater

The standard flat beater that comes with your KitchenAid stand mixer is great, but the six-quart flex edge beater is a better KitchenAid stand mixer accessory for bakers. The beater accessory decreases mixing time and features a flexible edge that thoroughly scrapes ingredients into the bowl—especially nice for thicker consistency ingredients and doughs like banana bread.

Slow Juicer and Sauce Attachment

Psst, freshly squeezed juice and homemade jams might be the secret ingredients that elevate good carrot cake, pineapple upside-down cake and Key lime pie to outstanding desserts! Instead of buying (and storing) a juicer, go for the KitchenAid slow juicer and sauce attachment. The juicer attachment is a masticating juicer, which first slices then processes soft, hard or leafy fruits and vegetables for a more nutrient-rich extraction. The options are endless for low pulp or high pulp juices, sauces and fruit jellies.

Pretty Stand Mixer Bowl

It’s smart to have an additional KitchenAid stand mixer bowl on hand. We love the gold conifer ceramic bowl because it’s pretty enough to display on the counter, AND it’s freezer, microwave, dishwasher and oven-safe. The titanium-reinforced ceramic resists chipping, cracking and staining. Bakers, this bowl is for you.

These tilt head bowl covers are perfect for bakers who need to chill ingredients in the fridge, or want to save extra cookie dough for a midnight snack. Better yet, the bowl covers are top-rack dishwasher safe.

Pouring Shields

Baking is messy! Keep things clean with the one-piece pouring shield. It fits onto your mixing bowl to help you add ingredients without making a sloppy mess. The shield also helps keep lightweight ingredients (like flour) from flying out of the bowl and onto your stainless steel appliances when you’re mixing. And yep, the pouring shield is dishwasher safe.
