Got A New Toy!

Hey everyone! Since I cut a lot of recipes in half the boys gave me the KitchenAid 3 quart bowl and mini whip for Christmas-thanks guys! I've used it a few times now and it does work fine. Is it as good as the bigger bowl and paddle for batters? I don't think so, you definitely need to use higher speeds to get everything mixed together. I do like the smaller size however, and will keep testing it on different recipes.
I'm most excited about trying it for egg whites, the reviews were very good for that. 
I see Lemon Meringue Pie in the near future:@)  
 Have a happy day!

Updated-I did use it to make my Lemon Meringue Pie here.
Worked great!

  1. You will love your new toy! I love mine! I do recommend, if it will fit yours, getting the paddle with the scrapers on it. I don't know why they don't just include it with the mixers! Love it!

  2. Going to do a little research project today! Also need to find out about paddles with scrapers....Blogging can be costly.

    Have a great weekend.

  7. I am all about using the right tool for what you are doing in the kitchen. When Joe pulls out a wee little knife to chop an onion I hand him the proper knife and give him the look he says. Must be fun being married to me. Have fun with your new accessory.

  13. What a nice gift! Didn't know they had a smaller bowl, looks like a great idea!

  14. Very cool! I can think of lots of quick things to use it for. I still don't think I'd have room on my counter to leave it out all the time. I need a bigger counter, huh?

    I store my big SunBeam Mixer in the pantry...it's handy, but I know I'd do more baking if it were out. Thanks for the review...sure was a neat gift.

  15. This size would be better for me than the big one I have, sitting in my closet as it just takes up too much space (I do so much by hand and using an old hand mixer!!) Enjoy. xo

  18. All the goodies you can make. I have had mine in the closet for over a decade. I really should pull it out.

  19. I didn't even know that the Kitchen Aide offered a smaller bowl and whip! Good to know.

  20. Oh, some days I hate blogger...I had a really great comment all done and then... it messed with my head. Told me I wasn't signed it and still wouldn't give me anything after all that...sigh..

    I was telling you how I can't wait to get a new KitchenAid.. because I was an idiot and gave my little old one (Snow White) to my brother. I wanted something with a larger motor to make sure it didn't break down mixing bread doughs.... silly me. This CuisineArt is noisy, chunks and grinds along at slow speed and there is way too much bowl bottom scraping necessary as the beaters don't reach there ....
    My brother is still happily mixing all his bread doughs with little Snow White who is happily still whirring quietly along....arrgghhhh....

  21. Hi Dear,
    a smaller bowl sounds interesting. I have only a big Kenwood food processor. But your look really good. Happy cooking.
    best greetings, Johanna

  22. Thanks for the FYI on this product. It's always nice to have someone else's opinion before buying something.

  23. Lynn, you are always up on the latest trends and gadgets. I also didn't know there was a small bowl available. Looks like it would be useful for mixing small amounts. Let me know when the lemon pie comes out of the oven.....
    Have a great weekend.--Shannon
