#1 Wedding Present of All Time!
on July 18, 2000
When I got married a couple years ago, this was at the top of my giftlist. Sure it's a bit pricey but I have had countless hand mixersthat I paid up to $60 for that just can't cut it when it comes to mixing cookie dough, beating egg whites, incorporating enough air into a cake batter so it comes out light and fluffy, and I could go on and on. The KitchenAid Mixer is a real WORKHORSE -- I've met people who've had theirs for well over 20 years. Plus all those attachments you can buy for it make a useful appliance even more versatile. Like I said, [the price] may seem expensive, but it will be the last mixer you ever buy (unless you buy one for a new bride!). And I love all the different colors it comes in as well! Hubby calls it the "Tim Allen/Home Improvement" kitchen appliance with that powerful motor that just never seems to overheat or quit, even when creaming a pound of butter and 2 cups of sugar together! As Tim the Toolman would say: "Rrr-rrr!"
