Gift Idea: BeaterBlade!

There are tons of things that make my life easier in the kitchen. And I just got a new and very lovely one for Christmas...I saw the BeaterBlade first in a magazine and left the page open (for weeks, maybe?) until Jeremy got the hint. He did well. He got me the one with the red silicone blades. It Is Awesome.

"Why?" you ask. Well, I'll tell you. You know how you have to scrape down the mixing bowl every so often while you're in the middle of mixing cookie dough or smashing potatoes? Well, this thing does it for you. And afterwards you can detach it and use it as a spatula to scrape out the bowl. Less dishes to wash! Excellent. Don't you wish you'd thought of this idea first?? I certainly do. No kidding.

I have a KitchenAid mixer and my BeaterBlade is specifically designed to fit it. The BeaterBlades are not made by KitchenAid, though, so if you have another brand of stand mixer, check their website to see your options. And if it's cheaper on Amazon, well, there you go. That's where mine came from.

Really, it's a perfect gift to give the cooks and/or bakers in your life. Valentine's Day is coming up and doesn't it kind of even look like a heart?

What? Not even a little?

Oh. Huh.

Just use your imagination, O.K.? Bakers will heart BeaterBlade. Of this you can be certain. And if you need to leave this blog post open for your significant other to discover, I'm here for you. =)


  1. My sister-in-law loves cooking and recently shared the importance of owning a standing mixer with me. Perhaps it shall be on my birthday list--and I will remember this mixing blade, too. Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. This is officially on my "want" list!

  3. I want a kitchen-aid mixer and a beater blade!!! I can't wait to get home and cook!!!!

  4. I think I've been waiting till I get married to own my very own Kitchen Aid mixer in some awesome color...like lilac! But, now that I really give it some thought (about 4 minutes of thinking), I realize that this bridal rite-of-passage my be pushed to the top of my "need now" list:) Thanks for the tip!

  5. Yes, first of all, if a girl doesn't have a stand mixer, she MUST get one. They are so much easier! (And can handle a lot more cookie dough!)

    Dana - I inherited my KitchenAid from my mom before I even met Jeremy, so it wasn't a bridal thing for me. I LOVE it. You should totally get one! Lilac sounds so fun!!

  6. I have yet to own one, yet everyone who uses them loves them. I need to get one!

  7. I have seen this and forgotten about it. It really is a great idea. I can't tell you the number of times I've used a spatula to do a scrape down (while the mixer is running) only to have it knocked out of my hand and whirl around the bowl splattering food about the kitchen. My fault, of course! It is heartshaped! Rather than just hinting, I think I'll purchase one as a gift for my husband!!


  8. In the past week a stand alone mixer is on my "wish" list and now this is as well!!! I think my sister in law needs one as well.

  9. I saw this for the first time a few weeks ago! Genius! I must get one! ;)
