Kitchenaid 6000 Stand Mixer Review
I love cooking and baking for my family. But sometimes, it can really take a toll on me — it is so hard to make everything from scratch without the right equipment. When relatives and friends kept praising me for my goodies and even ordered a few items for their family occasions, I started thinking that this could be a stable source of income for me and my family. It also dawned on me that I would not be able to sustain making all my baked products just by hand. So, I tried to save up a certain percentage of my income from baking in order to buy myself a mixer and also save myself a lot of time and effort.
Of course, the first thing that came to my mind was to get a Kitchenaid mixer. This is definitely a no-brainer for this brand is trusted and has been helping homemakers with their kitchen duties and activities for decades. The company is nearly a century old (95 years)! I have heard nothing but great things about this brand when I asked around for a good mixer. It also helps that I grew up with a mom who also loved baking and also used Kitchenaid. In fact, I asked around for input because I thought there would be other brands in the market aside from what I know. It just turned out that they too didn’t trust any other brand aside from Kitchenaid, of course! Then, when I finally saved up enough for my first Kitchenaid, the first product that caught my eye was the Kitchenaid 6000 Stand Mixer. I mean, who wouldn’t fall in love with this beauty at first sight? Here are just some of its perks:
1. Easy to Use
It doesn’t take a professional chef to use this stand mixer. All I have to do is load up the ingredients and the machine does everything else for me. It is hands-free so I can actually do other tasks while my ingredients are mixing.
2. Looks Great
The Kitchenaid 6000 Stand Mixer comes in a wide variety of delightful colors. I think there were around 28 colors to choose from and I loved purple so I instantly bought one in Raspberry Ice. It looked perfect and added a pop of wonderful color on my seemingly dull countertop.
3. Easy to Clean
It is not just easy to use but it is also easy to clean. Everyone who cooks can attest to the fact that it is better to work in a clean space. Unlike other hand mixers, using this stand mixer allows me to enjoy a clean countertop and avoid spraying batter all over the place. This also makes clean-up very easy because I could just put all the ingredients together in one bowl without the need to use other separate bowls for each ingredient. In the end, I only end up cleaning just one bowl which can also easily fit in the dishwasher.
4. Attachment Hub
Of course, the best thing about the Kitchenaid 6000 Stand Mixer is the attachment hub! This allows me to use over 12 attachments for various cooking needs. I can dice, slice, grind, juice, shred, and do a whole lot more using this one equipment because of this added feature!
In fact, with the help of the attachment hub, I could use the same mixer as a food processor. I was able to get beautifully sliced and diced vegetables using this attachment. I have also tried the juicer and sauce attachment. It was equipped with a 2-stage blade and allowed me to reduce my prep work. I was able to turn my leafy greens into healthy green juices for my family.
Right now, there are still a number of attachments I have yet to discover and I can’t wait to learn to use them all!
