How Kitchen Aid Attachments Work
If you look at the front of your KitchenAid mixer, you see a cylindrical projection with a set screw and cap. All KitchenAid stand mixers have the same hub station, so you can use any KitchenAid Attachments with a KitchenAid mixer. To protect an attachment, turn the screw and remove the cover drive hub. Place the Kitchen Aid attachment, rotating as needed until it clicks. Tighten the thumbscrew.
Types of Kitchen Aid Attachments
Kitchen Aid Attachments
KitchenAid offers a wide range of accessories for all mixer models. If you enjoy homemade pasta, rolls and knives can make a variety of homemade pasta. Engaged homesteaders or foodies will appreciate flour mills, food grinders, flakers, and sausage stuffing attachments. Accelerate food prep with cutting and shredding drums. You can also buy a fruit strainer, ice machine or juicer to fit any KitchenAid mixer.
While many appendices work on any KitchenAid mixer, replacement and additional bowls are not necessarily interchangeable. A glass bowl and a smaller 3-liter bowl available for a traditional model at home, like the KitchenAid Artisan KSM150, does not work with higher KitchenAid mixers. If you want other bowl accessories, including covers or spouts, make sure you buy a size compatible with your KitchenAid mixing bowl.
Points to note
Buying kitchen aid attachments for your mixer is an easier prospect than shopping for a new guard, paddle beater or dough hook. Consult your manual for your KitchenAid model number and compatible part numbers. Different mixers require larger or smaller floats, so that these parts are not interchangeable from one model to another. Replace a broken or lost beater, pick up a spare or take advantage of new beater designs, such as a flat paddle with a scraper.
