This is one of the KitchenAid attachments that could save your fingers and wrists from chopping vegetables and fruits and in shredding nuts and firm cheeses. It just might replace your food processor.

Who can have a mixer and not consider the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker a “must have”? I consider this to be one of the “fun” KitchenAid attachments and I certainly wouldn’t want to have the mixer without it!

Anyone can make up to 2 quarts of fresh ice cream, sorbet and other frozen desserts with this attachment.  You should definitely put this on your list of “must have” KitchenAid attachments.

Among the many KitchenAid mixer attachments, the KitchenAid wire whip is probably one that everyone uses. If you have a KitchenAid stand mixer you are going to use the wire whip all the time. You will use it for making cakes, mashed potatoes, hummus, and meat loaf. The list goes on and on.This attachment is an absolute “must have” but luckily almost every

KitchenAid mixer comes with it.  If yours don’t have it, then be sure to get one of these when you shop for KitchenAid attachments.


KitchenAid Dough Hook

The favorite of these KitchenAid mixer attachments is the spiral dough hook as it more closely simulates the action of hand kneading the dough. At the same time both of these KitchenAid attachments are very popular and having at least one of them is considered a “must have”.


So those of you who are thinking about getting a KitchenAid mixer and those of you who already have one and are wondering about KitchenAid mixer attachments, this list of popular “must haves” is a great place to start.
