An Overview On KitchenAid Attachments

KitchenAid stand mixers can do much more than mix, knead and whip. Do you want to roll pasta for ravioli, produce zoodles for a salad or mill wheat berries to make bread flour? No problem — the company sells a bevy of attachments to satisfy your needs. The mixer-powered extensions, which easily connect to the machine’s front attachment knob to perform particular functions, are usually sold separately or together in budget-friendly bundles.

Some of the most popular KitchenAid attachments include the pasta maker, a set that rolls and cuts sheets of pasta; a spiralizer that peels, cores and slices fruits and vegetables; a grinder that minces meats and cheeses and a food processor that chops and dices. The attachment lineup also features a strainer, slicer/shredder, vegetable sheet cutter, grain mill, pasta press, juicer, ice cream maker, sausage stuffer and sifter.

Which KitchenAid attachment is right for you? It really depends on what you want to cook. If you’re planning to make sauces, the strainer purées fruits and vegetables into a fine consistency and is also great for prepping your own baby food or jams. Or if Italian fare is your jam, the pasta maker is a stellar tool for rolling dough for stuffed varieties as well as cutting classic fettuccine and spaghetti. You can even purchase the deluxe pasta maker, which makes comes with extra lasagnette and capellini cutters or the gourmet pasta press that creates short pastas like rigatoni, fusilli and macaroni.

Many attachments also conveniently serve duel purposes. For example, the meat grinder can also process hard cheeses and breadcrumbs and the vegetable sheet cutter also serves as a zoodle maker. And the grinder/strainer combination minces proteins and purées produce.
