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!

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!

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.

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.

We can do better than wrestling with plastic wrap to cover the top of the KitchenAid stand mixer bowl. 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.
This KitchenAid accessory is for serious bakers who want to experiment with freshly milled grains in their baked goods. Milling your own grains adds freshness, texture change and bragging rights to your treats. “Why yes, I did mill my own flour in this chocolate cake!” Say goodbye to processed flours and grains, and hello to healthier baking.
Here are the most popular types of flour, and when to use them in baking.
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.
