8 Super Genius Kitchen Aid Hacks You'll Wish You'd Known Sooner

Written by Grace & Silas

I grew up using a KitchenAid for almost everything. Whether that was making cookies, pie dough, or mashed potatoes. It seriously saved me time and made everything easy when making dishes. Also.. it never broke down; it was always so sturdy that it lasted for over 20 YEARS (my parents only replaced it because they wanted a new one).

Right now I don’t have room for a KitchenAid; we’re full-time travelers so that wouldn’t make any sense. However when I finally have a home base, you can bet that I’ll have one.. and I’m definitely trying out these KitchenAid hacks.

So feel free to check them out, let me know what you think, and be sure to head over to the original source!

(Psst.. you can get a KitchenAid here.. it’ll save you so much headache.)

Use a Towel to Contain Ingredients

One of the only things that makes me stand back from the KitchenAid when starting to mix, is when there’s a whole bunch of flour that might get on me (never does so I’m not sure why that’s a fear).. which is why I really like this hack.

Ok, so I’ve always wanted to make my own pasta, and that means as soon as I get a house, I’m buying this along with a KitchenAid (no joke).

Shred Chicken (or Pork) with Your KitchenAid

I’m not a huge fan of shredding meat with forks, so as you can imagine, I’m liking this tip.

Use an Ice Cream Lid as a Splash Guard

Found from The Krazy Coupon Lady

We all seem to have random empty ice cream buckets hanging around for something right (storage I guess)? So why not finally put them to good use and cut the lid to fit the KitchenAid for splatter control?

Slide it Over More Easily with Towel

Found from The Krazy Coupon Lady

I kinda hate picking up the KitchenAid since it’s so heavy, so I end up trying to slide it which ends up making a weird (and annoying) thud noise. So this towel hack will definitely come in handy.

Try Using it in Multiple Ways for a Month

Found from The Krazy Coupon Lady

KitchenAid has a 30 day warranty, which means if something’s wrong, send it back for another. So try using it in any way you can for a month (at least a couple times a week) and see if anything needs fixing.

Store the Attachments for More Room (And Easy Access)

Found from The Krazy Coupon Lady

Now this is something I used to do all the time. I hated putting the dishes away after being cleaned, but the easiest thing to put away? The KitchenAid attachments cuz they went straight into the bowl.

If you don’t have a KitchenAid, then I’d definitely suggest you get one. They last FOREVER and they can do so much. They make things so much easier and faster when cooking (especially around the holidays). All you have to do is just dump the ingredients in and take care of something else while the KitchenAid does all the work.
