Some girls see a pair of Suede Gucci Peep Toe boots and swoon – convinced they can’t go on living unless they have a pair in their closet.
Some guys see a 2010 Aston Martin v8 Vantage and just KNOW life would be sweeter from behind its windshield.
Me? While the boots are hawt and the car is sweet, my heart skips a couple of beats when I see stand mixers. Truth be told, any mixers make me swoon right about now because (as luck would have it) my mixer gave up the ghost about a week ago… right in the middle of making one of my husband’s favorite desserts, Orange Cupcakes!
With enough arm power to get the job done, the cupcakes turned out deliciously. The Cream Cheese Icing proved to be a chore I’ll never forget and never want to repeat. My arm hurt, literally, for two days. Within those 24 hours, I envisioned stand mixers like the Viking 5-qt. Stand Mixer, Red (shown above).
During the day, I swooned over how beautiful it’d look on my kitchen counter and during the night, I fell asleep picturing myself behind the wheel.
A stand mixer is always a welcome addition to the kitchen. Add a pop of color like bright red and it’s even more exciting! Designed to meet the needs of the professional chef, this 5-qt.
Viking stand mixer offers a rugged, all-metal gear transmission and runs on 800 watts. Exclusive to this stand mixer are the V-style attachments, ergonomic cast-stainless bowl handle and two back-mounted wheels for easy positioning of the entire unit. Choose from primary, low and high speeds to mix, blend, whip and knead.
With the planetary mixing action in operation, it ensures thorough results. The pop-up head lift locks in both the up and down positions. The Viking stand mixer comes complete with beater, whip and dough hook plus a beautiful, stainless steel mixing bowl.
I’m not gonna lie, I want this mixer in the worst way.
The Food Network Store also has some hot stand mixers such as the Majestic Yellow Stand Mixer (shown below). It’s a Kitchen Aid, so you know you’re in for top quality and top performance. Kitchen Aid and Viking are excellent brands and refuse to let you down.
This, I like.
If I’d been using a Kitchen Aid or a Viking, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have had such a sore arm for 2 straight days!
Stand Mixers are MUST HAVES in the kitchen and these are two of the most beautiful ones I’ve found. Of course, if you love basic black, silver, or white, you can find a stand alone mixer in the color you prefer.
While these stand mixers would make exceptional Christmas gifts for cooks, we should keep in mind how Heavenly it would be to use them, ourselves, as we make our Thanksgiving and Christmas. You know the drill, one for us THEN one for them.
