:( :( :(

Have you ever used a KitchenAid stand mixer? It's definitely justifiable. If you must though, there are usually sales on them around Christmas time.

And often rebates:

I bought a refurbished one, awesome deal. I miss making bread and buttercream.

I got mine with air miles! 6 years worth of air miles. Worth it.

My inner frequent flyer is sort of upset by that, but my inner kitchen geek is VERY IMPRESSED.

Oh I have different points that I use for flying. The air miles were just doing nothing.

Congrats!


Looking forward to meeting all of you crazy TLSers! :D



Me too!! I'd be super curious to get some data on what percentage of students who end up matriculating there have TLS accounts!

I got my KitchenAid a few years ago and it's my favorite possession that isn't my laptop. The paddle and whip attachments are nice for pastry but it's really the dough hook that's a game changer. I bake a lot of bread and pastries so I use mine at least twice a week. I probably won't be able to bring to lawl school and I'm going to miss it and the free time to use it so much :(

I love how this thread gets so incredibly off-topic when it really should be the EASIEST thread to stay on-topic.

This is credited, but the real answer is Gordon Ramsay.

Are we talking like as in their television personalities or cookbooks? Actually either way Heston Blumenthal rules.

Buddy. There's more meat on him, and I wouldn't feel bad about it.

Ted Allen did a hilarious skit for The Onion a while back. For this, he is my favorite also.

The KitchenAid mixer was the only thing on our registry that didn't get bought (stupid cake platter). But what would Alton Brown say about the stand mixer? It's not exactly a unitasker, but you could mix things by hand, right?

Also, I saw Ted Allen getting off the subway once and he is way hotter in person.

What is the name of Alton Brown's stand mixer?

Of course he has one and it is spruced up with flames

lolollll

also holy shit beating cake batter by hand - even with a handheld mixer thing - is so much work compared to the KitchenAid.

I did make puff pastry by hand the other day and it was AWESOME. I was thinking that I should have a bake sale to raise money for Law Student Housing aka my own rent.

Can I pre-order a puff pastry?
