It has been half a year and I still remember what a special day it was to me. It was one of the happiest in my life and thinking about it still makes me smile as I write this post.
On a Sunday late afternoon last summer, I walked into Costco in Richmond. All I wanted to get was a big pack of organic eggs, like I always do when I want to bake. ET always likes to wander in different aisles to check out new items. As we browsed the kitchen appliance section, we were startled by a big discount sign on the KitchenAid stand mixers. I couldn’t believe what I saw, to be accurate, we were in shock.
The professional model, yes, the model that delivers 475 watts, is on sale for $299. My dream baking machine, is now ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS off its regular price. ET and I looked at each other for a few seconds, letting ourselves to sink into the truth. Not too long later, my brian started its complicated process of choosing the best colour. After 5 minutes of trying to decide between silver and red, which involved getting ET to move multiple many heavy boxes left, right and centre so that I can see the mixer in different colours, I finally laid my hands on a a red mixer.
I’m so excited and happy. I have wanted to get a KitchenAid for years but I was always deterred by the price. In the past, I have always blamed my inefficient egg beater for all my baking failures. I guess now I can’t use that excuse anymore huh
The mixer comes with three attachments: the regular cake paddle, the wire whisk and a dough hook. I don’t know when I’ll use the dough hook though as I know nothing about making bread.
As a bonus, it also includes a set of measuring spoons and a spatula. Having it says “KitchenAid” on these little tools just makes me smile. And oh, I want to mention that later I found a red spatula from Linen & Thing, which is a perfect match to my mixer. Yes I know, sometimes I’m geeky
