Cuisinart ICE-45 Mix It In Soft Serve31pXIUxaZYL

If you are like most people in the world, you probably like putting all of the fixings on your ice cream. None of the ice cream maker reviews mention the sprinkles or an ice cream cone. This Cuisinart ICE-45 is different from all of the other ice cream makers in a few ways. The first difference is the fact that it produces soft serve ice cream instead of a bowl of ice cream. You put your ingredients into the ice cream maker and let it churn for a little while. The double insulated freezer bowl makes the process go along a little faster. You then pull down on a lever and have soft serve ice cream of your favorite flavor in your own kitchen. This is great because you no longer have to strain your wrist trying to scoop out multiple scoops into a bowl.

Another great feature is there is a cone holder on the side. You can grab your favorite type of cone, put it under the spout and let the soft serve  ice cream flow endlessly into your cone. There are also 3 built in condiment dispenser. This means you can have your sprinkles, chocolate chips and even some peanuts on top of your ice cream cone without having to get everything out separately. This is a one stop shop ice cream maker. It produces 1.5 quarts in 20 minutes without any salt, chemicals or even ice. It is also available in 2 different colors, pink and white.

Pros

  • Soft serve
  • 2 colors
  • 3 condiment holder

KitchenAid Stand Mixer Variations

 

KitchenAid Classic Pluskitchenaid mixer reviews

The basic KitchenAid stand mixer is the Classic Plus 4.5 quart mixer. This just about as plain as these mixers come. This mixer has all of the basic functions someone might need to use if they are mixing simple ingredients in the comfort of their own home. This one in particular is available in a white color so it blends well with most kitchen color schemes. There are 10 speeds on the classic mixer. The slower speeds are perfect for mixing dry ingredients like flour and sugar. The mixing motion combined with the slow speed allows the ingredients to be mixed thoroughly without creating a flour dust pile on your counter. The tilt-head feature is great because it lets your easily pull the bowl out or add large quantities of ingredients to the bowl while it is attached. The bowl actually locks into place so you don’t have to worry about it sliding all over the place while you are mixing your food. The thing that makes this mixer the Classic version is the power behind the motor. There are 275 watts of power helping your whip and mix your ingredients into something fantastic.

There is a multipurpose attachment hub that holds any KitchenAid stand mixer attachment available. The list of attachments is almost endless that you can use on these mixers. The Classic plus mixer is generally for someone who uses it to mix small amounts of ingredients for cooking dinner and making desserts. The attachments that come with the machine when you initially buy it are the flat beater for most of the jobs, the wire whip for beating eggs an d making whipped cream, and the dough hook for making your own bread and pizza dough. The size of the appliance is perfect because it is not too big or too small. It can easily sit on your counter all of the time or be stored below in a cabinet.

52743e7bdbfa3f7a840063e4._w.540_s.fit_Using this mixer to make whipped cream is great because it produces a better-textured cream than most other mixers. The key to making your own whipped cream is constant whisking of the liquid cream. When you use a hand-held mixer, there can be inconsistencies when it comes to the pattern you use. When you use a simple whisk in your hand, you probably cannot keep a constant speed going to make the whipped cream. This stand mixer keeps a constant pattern and speed to make the absolute best whipped cream.

 

 

KitchenAid Ultra Power71TTBcZKROL._SL1500_

The KitchenAid Ultra Power stand mixer is very similar to the classic plus but there are a few differences. The main difference is the motor. Instead of 275 watts of power, this appliance has 300 watts of power. This is great because it means you can easily mix tougher ingredients and more ingredients than before. This mixer also has the tilt-head function to ensure easy cleaning and mixing. The tilt-head locks into place when it is down and mixing and when it is back and open. This is great because you don’t have to constantly hold the top up while you are messing with it. One of the best features is the direct drive transmission. This ensures the absolute best durability and stability of all the stand mixers out there.

There are 10 speeds as well on this appliance. The speeds slowly get faster as you move up the scale. This is great because most of the hand held mixers only have 3 speeds. You either slowly mix your ingredients or violently splatter them everywhere. Now you can find the perfect speed for just about any mix of items. There is also a 67 point planetary mixing action. This ensures every bit of ingredients in the mixing bowl gets mixed together at some point while you are using the stand mixer. You no longer have to stop mixing, scrap the sides with a spatula and keep going. You can turn the mixer on and let it run while you prepare other food items or clean around the house.

Making-the-bread-dough-in-my-KitchenAid-stand-mixer.The bowl that comes with the mixer is 4.5 quarts. The base where the bowl goes is the right size to accommodate both a 3 quart and a 5 quart bowl as well. This is perfect if you end up realizing you need a bigger mixing bowl. Instead of purchasing an entirely new appliance, you can simply buy a bigger bowl and use the same mixer. You can easily put 2 loaves of bread dough into the larger mixing bowl and make your own bread in the comfort of your own home.

 

 

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer81Ed9vJgZNL._SL1500_

Most people don’t want a boring mixer to sit on their counter at all times. Most hand mixers and other stand mixers only come in either silver or white which makes them very boring with no personality.  Luckily the Artisan version of the KitchenAid stand mixer crew comes in a wide variety of colors. You will find that it is very easy to match your mixer to your current color scheme when you buy one of these. The feature that sets this mixer apart from the others in the KitchenAidmixer reviews is the fact that it comes with a glass bowl. This lets you see how well everything is mixing together without having to utilize the tilt-head feature as much. Usually, you have to tilt back the head of the mixer and stop the process in order to see where your ingredients are in the mixture process. Now you can see how it is working while it is running. The glass bowl that comes with this mixer is 5 quarts in size.

This mixer also has the planetary mixing action. There are 59 points on this planetary mixing motion. This ensures there will be no ingredients left that are not mixed into the bowl. All of the attachments that work with mixing the ingredients rotate completely around the bowl to hit just about all open areas. There are many other attachments that fit into the versatile hub to let you do just about everything with your stand mixer. The metal construction of this appliance lets you know that it will last for years to come. You don’t have to worry about replacing your mixer every year once you buy a KitchenAid stand mixer. The IMG_0442durability ensures that your mixer will not dance around on the counter while you are kneading dough in the bowl.

The 5 quart KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer holds 9 dozens worth of cookie dough. That means the bowl an hold enough cookie dough to bake 108 cookies. You don’t have to make a few cookies at a time anymore. You can make all of the cookie dough in the mixer, scoop out some to bake, and leave the rest covered in the fridge until you are ready to bake the rest. Gone are the days of only making 12 cookies at a time.

 

KitchenAid Professional Stand Mixer91ADmyROOPL._SL1500_

The Professional series of the KitchenAid stand mixers are on a completely different level compared to the other stand mixers. The first thing that sets them apart is the motor within the appliance. You will get a whopping 575 watts of power with this stand mixer. There is almost no limit to what you can mix in the mixing bowl. The other main feature is the size of the bowl. Most of the other mixers only have 4 or 5 quart mixing bowls. This professional mixer comes with a 6 quart stainless steel mixing bowl. Compared to the other mixing bowls, the 6 quart one has a wider mouth shape to it. The other bowls are tall with skinnier mouths and this one is shorter with a wider mouth. Like the other KitchenAid appliances, this mixer has the 10 speeds and planetary mixing action.

The one thing this mixer does not have that others do is the tilt-head technology. Instead of the top of the mixer tilting back to let you have greater access to the bowl, the bowl holder slides up and down the main part of the appliance. This feature allows for more stability when it comes to the bowl itself. Instead of locking it into place every time you want to use it, you just strap it to the holder and start mixing. This mixer is also available in a few different colors. You don’t have to stick with a boring color anymore. You can choose anything from red or green to blue or 5173061401_4c0dceac94purple.

Have you ever wanted to mash your own potatoes without hurting your hands? Now you can mash up to 8 pounds of potatoes in your KitchenAid professional stand mixer. All you need to do is boil the potatoes and place them in the mixing bowl. Once they are soft enough, the mixer will break them up and turn them into the perfect mashed potatoes you have ever tried.

 

 

KitchenAid Commercial Stand Mixer618B7s+7Y4L._SL1500_

If you are looking for a heavy duty stand mixer for a small business of some sort, this KitchenAid commercial stand mixer is perfect for you. It is available in multiple colors and is large enough to handle large loads of food. There are 500 watts of power backing this commercial mixer. That might not sound like a lot of power for a large commercial appliance but the size makes up the difference. The bowl itself holds 8 quarts of ingredients. That is almost twice as large as the other mixers in this review. The power and size combination produces the most efficient mixing techniques for this mixer. There is not a tilt-head feature with this mixer. That is because the apparatus is too big to have that feature. Instead, the bowl locks onto the main body of the appliance and slides up and down.

There is a heavy duty handle to ensure easy lifting when the ingredients are already inside the bowl. This is a j-style handle and is very sturdy. This mixer comes with a whip attachment that has 11-wires. That is larger than most of the other whip attachments for these mixers. This is because most of the people using the commercial size mixers are making large quantities of food at one time. The flat beater is burnished stainless steel which makes it last much longer than the plastic ones. The spiral dough hook is also not made of plastic. It is made of stainless steel as well. Even though it is a large appliance, it is very quiet while it is running and is not very disturbing.

One of the best things to mix in the commercial grade mixer is eggs. With the smaller mixers, you can only mix a few eggs at one time. With the commercial mixer, you can add dozens of eggs at once and have them completely beaten in little to no time at all.

Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Juicer71zG5oUleQL._SL1500_

This next one on the juicer reviews list is more for professional and commercial usage. This Omega juicer uses a technique called masticating to produce the juice instead of a huge and powerful motor. The masticating juice extractor uses one powerful gear instead of a huge motor with multiple blades. This machine uses a very low speed, 80 RPMs, to produce the smoothest juice you will ever try. This slow speed helps prevent any foaming, clogging or heat buildup. You no longer have to worry about the motor stalling because of over usage.  You also don’t have to worry about the pulp clogging up the motor when it is spinning at fast and powerful speeds. It produces a large amount of juice while pulling out very dry pulp. The pulp is usually an issue with other juicers out there. The pulp is automatically ejected out of the machine so it can keep running smoothly for hours.

This juicer is extremely easy to put together and use. It is also very easy to take apart and clean up after a long session of juicing. The low speeds and small motor make this very quiet and non-disruptive. The feeder tube is only 1.5 inches wide but the juice you end up getting makes up for the small tube and motor.

Pros

  • No foaming
  • No clogging
  • Easy to use
  • Pulp-ejector
  • Masticating juicer

Cons

  • Price
  • 1.5 inch tube

You can save a lot of money grinding your own specialty blend instead of buying from Starbucks or your corner neighborhood coffee shop. With that said, coffee grinders bring a lot more to the table than just their ability to grind coffee beans efficiently and effectively. You can use coffee grinders to  grind all sorts of ingredients. As long as they’re small, and they’re tough, you can use coffee grinders to get them down to a fine enough consistency where you can use these ingredients. Here are three non-coffee grinding uses for your coffee grinder.

Grinding spices

If you like Indian food, and if you like to formulate your own spice blends, you can grind up lots of spices using coffee grinders. All you need to do is make sure that you mix the right spice in the right portions and give the grinding head enough space to work its magic. You can grind all sorts of spice combinations. This is also especially helpful when you are grinding spices for baking purposes. A lot of baked goods taste really good with cinnamon. However, if you add a little nutmeg or even mace, you can come up with all sorts of flavor blends that truly make your pastries and desserts come to life. If you’re baking specialty breads, different spices go round up through coffee grinders can really unlock their full flavor potential.

coffee grinder reviewsGrinding nuts

If you are vegetarian or a vegan, you can make your own vegetarian cheeses through ground nuts. Using coffee grinders, you can grind cashews to a fine consistency. You, then, soak them overnight. Once they have absorbed enough liquid, you can drain them and then run them through a food processor. By using coffee grinders to grind cashews, you ensure a high level of water absorption. The more water a cashew absorbs, the creamier the cashew becomes. Once you drain enough moisture from these soaked ground cashews, you can create all sorts of fine vegetarian cheeses. You just need to add a little lemon and salt to round out the cheese flavor. Nut-based cheeses are superior to real dairy based cheese because they don’t contain high levels of  bad fats and harmful cholesterol. The secret to the best nut cheeses is to run the cashew through a coffee grinder first.

Grinding seeds

If you’re looking to boost the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet or increase your intake of DHA, you should look into using coffee grinders to grind your own flaxseed. Unfortunately, when you go to your nearby health store, flaxseed come in a raw form. If you just eat flaxseed in its natural raw form, you’re not going to enjoy much of its benefits. Why? It hasn’t been ground down. Its oils are still stuck within the seed jacket or seed coating. To fully unlock the nutritional components and value of flaxseeds, you need to run them through coffee grinders. In ground form, the digestive system can extract maximum value from flaxseeds and other high-value  dietary seeds. These seeds are also great if you’re looking to lose weight. They pack enough fiber that you feel fuller for a longer period of time. Consequently, your stomach sends less hunger signals to your brain, and you tend to eat less. When you eat less, you reduce your calorie intake, and you increase the amount of stored fat your body burns. Eventually, you lose weight.

Keep the three non-coffee grinding uses above in mind when considering coffee grinders. Coffee grinders are very flexible pieces of kitchen equipment. Even if you don’t enjoy drinking coffee, there are many uses for coffee grinders that can help you save time effort and energy in your cooking activities.
