To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A principios de 2020, realizamos la compra porque la descripción decía que incluía la batidora y llegaron solo accesorios. Hicimos la devolución al siguiente día, (enero 13) y es día que no hacen el reembolso.
I bake all the time and sifting dry ingredients is something I loathe doing. It’s time-consuming and messy. I’ve tried a gazillion types of sifters and wasn’t satisfied with any of them.
When I saw the announcement about this stand mixer attachment that also included a scale, I thought, “KitchenAid heard my cries and answered my call for help!” It took a while to arrive and I’ll admit I was concerned about some of the other reviews. They were mixed and some just all out discouraging.
When this puppy arrived, I created an excuse to bake something. I started with French Macarons, something one reviewer said shouldn’t be attempted with this attachment. I’m not sure what that person did compared to what I did, but I was overwhelmingly pleased with the finished results.
Yes, there are a lot of parts when you disassemble it for cleaning. However, I’m a bit of a neat freak with my kitchen equipment so the deep clean I get by taking it apart is right up my alley. Also, once you get it back together the first time, it’s a breeze each additional time.
I’ve used the attachment every chance I get, which is often. I wouldn’t hate having the cup capacity a bit larger for my bigger bakes, but that is a minor issue for me. I highly recommend it for serious bakers.
I do a lot of baking and hate sifting. I have 2 kitchen aid mixers and thought this would be a great addition for sifting all of that sugar I use for buttercream. I was so disappointed in this gadget. It's slow. It's noisy. The screen on the strainer portion of this is maybe a little bigger than a silver dollar so when you are trying to sift 2 cups of something, you had better be prepared to wait. And wait. And wait. Additionally, because the screen is so small, if you get a clump, it now clogs about half of the screen and then stops the weak little flow of powder and you have to disassemble in order to remove the clump. I wish I could return it for a refund. Maybe I can regift it to someone I don't really like!!!
My wife asked for this attachment for Christmas and she put it to good use during her extensive holiday baking. The original KitchenAid dough-bowl, although large does not leave much space for the easy addition of flour. This attachment solved the problem as one can easily add the flour which then gets sifted and falls into the bowl from the attachment slide. You can continuously add flower without sopping the mixer. Not much use for the scale as most recipes are using 'cups' as the measuring unit for flour. She very much likes this attachment and we recommend it.
I purchased this sifter attachment primarily to help with sifting powdered sugar for buttercream. I have a home baking business and I make A LOT of buttercream and HATE the mess made by the powdered sugar. I thought this attachment would be my savior. Boy, was I wrong!
Just this morning I had the 4th catastrophe with the entire attachment coming loose, dropping to the floor, and spilling 4 cups of powdered sugar all over my kitchen. Exactly what I was trying to avoid!! Additionally, the process takes too long to sift flour into cake batter as too much mixing is required (which you don't want to do once flour is added to the wet ingredients).
What's more, after a few uses, the scale won't turn on. I'm assuming that the flour/powdered sugar has gotten into the batteries (which I have to remove and clean every time I use it). The clean up after using is very time consuming. And to make matters worse, it is VERY LOUD while sifting
All in all, save your $ and buy a kitchen scale and sifter!!! If Kitchenaide would offer to refund my money, I'd gladly send it back!!
