Accessories for Kitchenaid stand mixer – Sausages
The KitchenAid Sausage Stuffer (SSA) is a compact attachment which enables the user to make sausages. Once the filling is ready (vegetarian or meat) then just the chosen skin on the end of the attachment and feed the filling into the attachment. The Sausage Stuffer comes with two different sized feed tubes for thick and thin sausages. It should be used with the KitchenAid Food Grinder (5FGA).
KitchenAid mixers come with a beater and dough hook in the box. Replacements are available, but KitchenAid also manufacture a Flex-Edge Beater (5KFE5T). This beater has a brilliant rubber edge which scrapes against the side of the bowl so there is no need to pause the mixing to use a spatula. This edge also helps make the mixing of the ingredients quicker.
The newest addition to the attachment range is the Pasta Roller (KPSA). This attachment until recently was only available as part of the KitchenAid Pasta Attachment pack (KPRA) which contains the Pasta Roller and two pasta cutters. The KPSA allows the user to make pasta to any thickness and up to 140mm wide, and is great for making lasagne sheets, or sheets of pasta for ravioli. It is simple to use, just pass the pasta dough through the roller on a setting of 1 or 2 to work the dough and then use the higher numbered settings to flatten the dough to the desired thickness.
If you want to turn your KitchenAid mixer into a food processor that there is an attachment pack which will enable you to do so. The Cone Slicer/Shredder kit (MVSA) contains a medium shredding drum, a coarse shredding drum and a slicing drum. They can be used to prep root vegetables, potatoes, onions, fruit, nuts, cheese and even chocolate. If chopping and slicing is a chore you hate the MVSA is for you.
The last attachment we’re looking at is the Grain Mill (5KGM) which is available from Go-Electrical for £150. This attachment allows the user to make flour using their choice of grain, which means that this attachment is perfect for people with allergies. Insert wheat, oats, rice, corn, barley, buckwheat, millet and other low moisture non-oily grains and adjust the mill accordingly, to make flour or coarsely cracked grains. Ideal for bread bakers, this attachment won’t be a necessity for every KitchenAid user.
