The KitchenAid Mini Mixer has arrived to give you back the prime real estate that is your countertops. If your kitchen is like a live game of Tetris like mine, you'll be happy to hear that this smaller version of the powerful mixer we all know, does not disappoint. I whipped up some muffins to test it out. The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
New KitchenAid Mini Mixer
Who the heck makes muffins when it's 90 degrees out? Well, I do. Not only to take my new mini KitchenAid Mixer for a spin, but I've also been craving a light and tasty muffin. The muffins are a basic recipe but turned out well, so I'll leave the recipe below. For now, I need to make sure you realize how awesome this KitchenAid Stand Mini Mixer is.
If you love to bake and cook, I'm quite confident you already own or would love to own a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. If space is holding you back, know that you now have another option. The KitchenAid® Artisan® Mini Mixer is 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the original. It's the iconic stand mixer you know and love, just more ideal for smaller kitchens and easier to move around. The new addition to the KitchenAid Stand Mixer family has the same power, tilt-head design, and loads of color options like the others.
The Artisan Mini has a 3.5-quart bowl that makes up to 5 dozen cookies. It comes with a coated flat beater, dough hook, and 6-wire whip. Other attachments are available if you want to get extra fancy to make everything from fresh pasta to burgers, veggie noodles, and even more.
I won't pretend to be amazing in the kitchen, but I dabble. Mike got me the larger KitchenAid Mixer a few years ago for my birthday. Just having it live on my countertop made me want to bake more often. It's so much easier to mix anything and everything. Now, having a smaller version is even better. The mini takes up a lot less space, and I can easily lift it and store in a cabinet. The compact size is perfect for anyone who lives in a place with a smaller kitchen.
I made a simple muffin recipe with ease using the KitchenAid Mini Mixer.
Cinnamon Muffins Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/3 cup butter
- Add all dry ingredients to a bowl and stir.
- Beat the egg in your stand mixer before adding the rest of the wet ingredients.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the wet to combine.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
This batch made 10 muffins in a standard cupcake tray. It's a great base recipe to eat plain or add any sort of chips or nuts into. I would typically add cinnamon or chocolate chips, but I was craving plain. I got to make the same batch of muffins I would normally make in this mixer, so no downsizing necessary for the tiny beast of a mixer.
