Why We All Scream for the KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment

Kitchenaid ice cream recipesNo matter what the calendar says, it’s always a good time for ice cream.

Here, we’re telling you everything you need to know about the KitchenAid ice cream attachment.

Why Do I Need A Kitchen Stand Mixer?

Before we get into the reasons why the KitchenAid ice cream attachment will make you say goodbye to store-bought ice cream for good, let’s talk about the reasons why people buy stand mixers in the first place.

It’s obvious that owning a stand mixer can help to speed up the cooking and baking process and eliminate messes (especially when cooking with the youngest chefs in your family) — but did you know stand mixers can replace the need for 15 different kitchen tools?

Think about all the kitchen counter space that could save you.

A stand mixer can also save you time. Since you don’t have to stir your ingredients yourself, you can multi-task while the mixer does the hard work for you. Making a three-course meal just got a whole lot easier.

Best of all, stand mixers come with lots of attachments that you can hook on to help you make a specific dish.

One of our favorites by far is the KitchenAid ice cream attachment, which makes whipping up everyone’s favorite frozen treat a snap.

Should I Switch To KitchenAid?

KitchenAid sells about 2.5 million stand mixers each year. This brand’s reputation speaks for itself.

If you already have a handheld or stand mixer and are looking for a replacement, you’ve likely considered KitchenAid.

There are many reasons for the brand’s popularity. People love the aesthetics of the mixer, and the fact that it comes in over 50 colors means you can easily find a shade to match your kitchen’s decor.

KitchenAid was also the chosen brand of superstar chef Julia Child! If you’re a cooking and history buff in one, you can see her KitchenAid stand mixer on display at the Smithsonian. Imagine what she could have created with the KitchenAid ice cream attachment!

How Can I Use The KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment?

Never underestimate the popularity of ice cream. According to a recent study, America made over 1.53 billion gallons of ice cream in a single year.

But no matter how many different companies you buy from or flavors you try, the truth is that nothing can beat homemade ice cream.

Using the attachment will save you time and money, allow you to get creative, and most of all, it’s just fun.

First of all, here are some fast facts about the product:

  • It makes up to two quarts of ice cream
  • It can also be used to make sorbet
  • It easily attaches to your 4.5 Quart and over KitchenAid Household stand mixers
  • It has a one-year warranty

The KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment comes with a mixing bowl that can be, of course, frozen. The mixing bowl is especially known for the double thickness of its walls, which makes sure that the ice cream will freeze evenly — no runny inconsistency!

It’s also incredibly easy to assemble the attachment (which means that it’s also safe, with adult supervision, for children to use as well).

Still: as when dealing with any large appliance, always check to make sure that the mixer is turned off or unplugged altogether before you start the assembly.

When you place the mixing freeze bowl on the stand, it easily locks into place with a quick half-turn. The mixing device itself, sometimes referred to as the dasher, fits snugly inside the freeze bowl. Then, bring down the head of the mixer, and lock the mixer’s lever into place.

You’re all ready to plug it in from this point!

The mixer also has a variety of different stirring speeds, from 0 to 10, meaning that the consistency can be adjusted according to your preference.

You’ll know that your ice cream is ready to enjoy when you start to hear a slight clicking noise coming from the mixer. Unhook the bowl and the mixer, and you’re all ready to serve!

Because of the consistency of the ice cream, it is recommended that you use a rubber spatula to move it to your serving bowls — there’s no need to run the risk of making a mess.

Enjoy Our Recipe for A Tasty Treat Using the KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment

You can’t go wrong with classic vanilla ice cream. Using the attachment, this should only take under half an hour or so to make!

(Just make sure you’ve frozen the mixing bowl the night before.)

You’ll need…

  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream

Put the milk and sugar into the bowl, and turn it on low for about a minute and a half. The sugar should dissolve.

Then, add the vanilla extract, cinnamon, and whipping cream.

Continue mixing the ingredients for about 25 minutes.

Enjoy! Why not add some sprinkles, ice cream cones, and even some hot fudge to make it an even more special treat? The KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment helps you avoid waiting in the crazy long summer lines of your local ice cream shop.
