I think that’s the one I’ve got. Wish I’d had one 20 years ago.I just purchased one of these for my wife for Christmas:
It's the Kitchenaid "lift bowl" style "Professional" 5qt., 525 watt, mixer with 5qt and 3qt bowls and extra attachments (regular and mini whisks). She's had the 4qt lift bowl model for some time and has really been lusting after this larger one. The box is huge - I had trouble finding somewhere to hide it!
What I’ve read is they increase friction, doing load to the motor, heating it more. I think KitchenAids position is they’re not recommended.They are awesome pieces of kitchen equipment. If you make bread, my wife does regularly, these are a huge help. She uses hers several times a week for various baking projects.
She's been after me for some time to get her one of the bowl scraper paddles but the reviews on them just aren't that good. Lots of comments about them falling apart. I want the pasta maker attachment. One of her aunts has an attachment that de-seeds products - tomatoes, berries, etc. for canning or making juice. I'd like one of those too as we make blackberry cobbler regularly and remove the seeds. It's a somewhat laborious process to do manually (you run the cooked berries through a wire sieve using a wooden spoon).
My experience years ago was homemade sauce was hours and hours of boiling down tomatoes and red peppers. This was a 45 minute sauce from scratch. And it’s good. The downside is it has a lot of butter, so is high calorie (especially compared to jar sauce.)

KitchenAid does offer one for the tilt head mixers but not the bowl-lift variety. That's what's kept one out of the house as hers is a bowl-lift.What I’ve read is they increase friction, doing load to the motor, heating it more. I think KitchenAids position is they’re not recommended.
For me, this silicone spatula/spoon changed my kitchen existence!
That looks outstanding!I smoked pork ribs in the backyard yesterday, using oak chips. I was very pleased with how they turned out. I served them with baked yams (sweet potatoes), cornbread, braised endive and pinto beans simmered with bacon, with pumpkin cupcakes for dessert.
I also carved a pumpkin for the first time in probably 30 years. Despite the fact that it is absolutely simple and basic, when I lit the candle inside, I was totally charmed by it.
I hope everyone found something to enjoy this Halloween, despite the unusual times we find ourselves in. We also had a film festival and through the day we watched Ghostbusters, Little Shop of Horrors and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (That is one nice thing about doing low and slow food like ribs and beans - plenty of time to watch a movie or two while they are cooking.) It turned out to be a fun day.
