The Best KitchenAid Attachments To Buy In 2019

If you own a KitchenAid stand mixer, first of all, you’re very lucky and we guess you are a regular in the kitchen. But we also assume you’re probably not making the most out of it.

Maybe you are thinking of purchasing one, but want to check out just how much it can do before taking the plunge.

Not only do they provide the user with powerful mixing results, but the motor can also help prepare pasta, spiralize vegetables and grind spices. It won’t replace every appliance and device you own, but it can save you a lot of storage space and really make the expense of your KitchenAid worthwhile.

Our Favourite KitchenAid Mixer Accessories

Depending on your lifestyle, not every accessory will appeal to you. But there could well be some out there which have passed you by, and new items are constantly being released. Here are the standouts we love:

Food Mixer Attachment Pack 5KSMFPPC

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

If you want a complete beginners kit, then this is a great bundle, which is a combination of three of the best-sellers – a grinder, a slicer/shredder and a fruit and vegetable strainer cone.

From mincing meat and grating cheese via slicing cucumber for your salad and straining your boiled fruit into a preserve, you have the main food preparation accessories right here.

Ice Cream Maker 5KICA0WHKitchenAid 5KICA0WH Ice Cream Maker

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

It makes sense to whip up some homemade ice cream with your KitchenAid mixer, but there would be a lot of trouble involved with transferring to a freezer-safe bowl, pre-freezing said bowl and then waiting for it to harden.

This bowl is specifically for frozen treats. Keep in the freezer overnight, and the liquid within the double layer will keep everything cool throughout the mixing process, so your ice cream can be ready to enjoy in 20 minutes.

Pasta Sheet Roller and Cutter Set 5KSMPRA

Suitable For: 5KSM150, 5KSM160, 5KSM155, 5KSM156, 5KSM7581, 5KSM7590, 5KPM5, 5KPM50, K5SS. Buy Here.

Fresh pasta is undeniably tastier than the shop-bought dried option. Here, you have a flat roller, spaghetti cutter and fettuccine cutter. The roller is for making sheets up to 140mm wide, and you can choose from eight different thicknesses, so it is suitable for lasagne, ravioli and thicker noodles.

It is much easier than hand controlled models as you have more freedom to feed through and grab the pasta when done. You get a cleaning brush to rid any mess and excess flour after.

Gourmet Pasta Press 5KSMPEXTA

KitchenAid Pasta Press Attachment

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

The ability to prepare spaghetti is all well and good until you fancy macaroni cheese or fusilli with tomato sauce. This attachment will then be your friend.

If you’re after a specific shape, then one of the six plates included with this bundle – Spaghetti, Bucatini, Rigatoni, Fusilli, Large Macaroni and Small Macaroni – will likely fit the bill. A built-in wire cutter gives you control over the length, too.

Grain Mill 5KGM

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

From fine flour to coarse oats and rice, this mill is perfect for bakers or those who like to make their ingredients from scratch. You can choose the fineness of the grind, and it will adhere to your wishes. No matter the low-moisture non-oily grain you’re using.

If you have always fancied making your own flour, then now is your chance.

Citrus Juicer 5JE

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

Juicing oranges and other citrus fruits is an awful lot of effort unless you get a bit of help from a dedicated appliance. This attachment is speedy, so great if you have a lot to get through, and the seeds, pips and pulp can be filtered out as the juice runs into a glass or bowl.

As the reamer rotates thanks to the power of the motor, every last bit of juice is extracted, and the shield prevents any splashes and mess.

Spiraliser 5KSM1APC

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

Whether you want to replace your spaghetti with courgetti or peel lots of pears for a pie, this attachment can do all the hard work. It comes with a handy storage case to keep it clean and fingers away from the sharp blades.

Vegetables and fruit of all sizes and shapes can be tackled, from odd sweet potatoes to perfectly round apples. All with little waste, too.

Sifter and Scale Attachment 5KSMSFTAKitchenAid 5KSMSFTA Sifter and Scale Attachment

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

This ingenious item will sift and measure all of your dried baking ingredients. Then, it will funnel them cleanly straight into your mixing bowl as it works.

It will hold up to four cups at any one time. Plus, the digital display is nice and easy to read. Because it is an all-in-one, it reduces the number of accessories you need to get the end result, and no mess is caused.

The scale can also be used separately on the countertop if you need to measure something without your mixer running, or you can remove the sifter to weigh and add chocolate chips.

Flex Edge Beater 5KFE5T

Suitable For: 5K45SS, 5KSM45, 5KSM95, 5KSM125, 5KSM150, 5KSM156, 5KSM175, 5KSM180, 5KSM185. Buy Here.

Ordinary beaters can struggle with some heavier mixtures, so if you’re a regular cake maker or potato masher, then having one which is up to the job is vital. This one may be able to tackle more difficult batters, but it still manages to work quickly and effectively.

It even has a flexible edge which acts as a spatula to scrape ingredients from the edge of the bowl. Which thankfully means you don’t have to keep stopping the appliance and doing it manually.

Sausage Stuffer 5SSA

Suitable For: All Models. Buy Here.

For use in combination with the grinder attachment, the sausage stuffer will transform your mincemeat into a variety of bangers. It comes with two tubes, 10 mm and 16 mm, and will allow you to experiment with ingredients.

If you like to know what goes into your food but don’t want to miss out having sausages with your fry up then it is going to be a handy accessory to have.

There are tonnes more out there, too. If you want to justify the price of your KitchenAid and save some space, then adapting it is the perfect idea. Some of these caught your eye but you are yet to own a mixing appliance? You can find our review of the latest KitchenAid stand mixer here.
