Mixers & Attachments

With all the various mixers and attachments available today, it seems that food can be whipped, pressed or folded into just about any shape or consistency. The simplest of these is the humble hand mixer. It doesn’t have to be a large piece of equipment to be a great go-to tool in the kitchen. The hand mixer is great for whipping up something quick, like a pre-made baking mix. Hand mixers are ideal for those who lack space in their kitchens, travel with their baking equipment as part of their profession or to a vacation home or want a backup or alternative to a larger stand mixer.


Stand mixers are beautiful things to behold. They come in almost every color from the traditional black, silver, white/ivory tones, to the livelier colors of vintage kitchens: lime green, powder blue, bubble gum pink. No matter what inspires your decorating, there is a mixer that will look right at home in the kitchen. With powerful motors and multiple settings, the home baker can make just about anything a professional bakery could conjure. You can measure ingredients or clean up that bit of flour that always seems to spill while the mixer does all the work for you. Planetary action allows the attachments to spin and move around the bowl without any guidance from you, and rest assured that the bowl will stay put as it locks into the base or the lift arms, when equipped. All the stand mixers come with glass or stainless-steel mixing bowls, specially designed to fit into them, and Williams-Sonoma carries a variety of attachments to turn your mixer into a pasta press, meat grinder, ice cream maker and more.


It is useful to have some extra mixing bowls and the frequently used attachments on hand so you don’t have to stop baking to wash dishes, but that is not the only thing you will find when you start shopping for additional attachments. Baking is obvious, but did you know that your stand mixer can be used to make pasta, cut vegetables, make ice cream, juice fruits and vegetables, grind meat, stuff sausage, mill grain and strain fruits and vegetables? With all the specialized attachments available, a stand mixer can be used for just about any kitchen task – including getting the food at the right temperature while mixing if you choose a heated mixing bowl.


Anyone who has eaten fresh pasta can confirm that it is a different experience than eating the dry pasta most of us have in the pantry. With the mixer attachments, you can craft any variety of pasta: flat sheets and lasagna with the pasta roller, thin noodles with the pasta press, even fresh ravioli with your favorite filling using the ravioli attachment. Throw in a jar of your favorite pasta sauce and some Parmesan cheese, and you have a delicious meal. An alternative to delectable pasta is nutrient-filled spiral cut vegetables, which are made using one of the spiralizer attachments. You can even make your own fresh tomato sauce with the strainer attachment, so there are no messy tomato skins to peel. Chop some fresh vegetables in the food processor attachment to add to your sauce. Whether you prefer meatballs or sausage with your pasta, there is an attachment for that too. The food grinder attachment will grind your meat and whatever else you include for the freshest meatballs you can get. Make your own sausage using your favorite meats and seasonings and the sausage stuffer attachment. Save room for gelato after your Italian feast; you can make this dessert with your stand mixer’s ice cream maker attachment. Create fresh, delicious ice cream using whatever ingredients you like best.


If you find yourself mixing batter with a big wooden spoon until your arms ache, you are missing out on so many opportunities. A hand mixer reduces the manual labor involved in everyday baking tasks, and a stand mixer turns every object in your refrigerator or pantry into a potential meal or dessert that you can make fresh yourself.
