Kitchen Aid Lids and Extra Bowls - Page 2

Hhmn, a bath sheet over my head would complete my baking look, haha! I have the baker's white aprons, either wear an official baker or chef's hat or sometimes I wear this little Purity Flour hat, Purity is a Canadian company, they supplied these hats to some of the baking course students. Pretty funny looking hat and obviously meant for smaller heads than mine, but anyway, you will never see a picture, haha!
And my kitchen can go from spotless to disaster in seconds. I put each ingredient away after I use it, wash all of the utensils and bowls as I am going along and still, it looks like something attacked the kitchen. Geesh!
Oh yeah, I have a favourite baking t-shirt. It has this picture of this big cat wearing a spotted cow apron, holding onto a broom and it states, "I don't do mousework". Does that complete the picture, haha!
Baking isn't glamourous!

I'm glad I read this post regarding the shield around the bowls.. I was so envious of those as I do not have one with mine.. I see that they're not really as handy as I thought lol ... I too do the clean kitchen towel on my bowl. I drape mine over the top and hold it loosely against the sides of the bowl so the confectioner's sugar doesn't fly all over the place... it still gets some on my counter, but not nearly as much as it would w/o a towel over it .. I will have to check into those reconditioned bowls!! I need another bowl!! Many, many times, I mix vanilla and chocolate cake mixes.. I have to dump the vanilla off in another bowl, wash my mixing bowl and then mix the chocolate in it again .. then wash again and mix icing while the cakes are baking ... I'd love to have at least 2 more bowls... and lids!! those would be great to have too icon_biggrin.gif

Ok this is my question ..i have the 4.5 quart bowl KA.
I need a bigger bowl.. can a 5 or even 6 quart bowl fit my KA?
Or do the KA come with that particular size bowls.

I also have no use for the shield - it really was a waste of money. I use the damp towel method and I love having an extra bowl (no handle) that stacks inside my larger bowl with a handle. Wish I had thought of lids!

My favorite is now the 'custom' spatula that fits the sides of the bowl correctly - but talk about a SPLURGE!

We can run by the Cake Store to get you a bowl or two when you're here! You'll love my friends store!

I bought a shield thing & it kept falling into my mixing bowl!! After using it once I tossed it in the cupboard! It isn't worth it!

Da' Momma of Cakes... What kind of vacuum system is that that you have?? I have never heard of it! Sounds like a great invention! I want one! Will it suck animals down it?? Jeff (son) brought home a stray kitten last night!! I would like the vacuum thing to suck all the animals & Jeff up!!!! LOL!!!

I don't think the larger bowl will fit. I'm not sure though. I wouldn't try it unless you know for sure. It might mess your KA up.

To cover my KA mixing bowl & use saran wrap then tinfoil. It works great!

I'm another one who rarely uses the shield. It's more bother than it's worth. I did splurge on a second bowl a while ago and would love another. What I really need is a new paddle or two as my paddle is really beat.

Must look for reconditioned bowls!

See SquirrellyCakes there are more of us who can do without THAT sheild. I feel so much better. I will try the damp towel this weekend and see how that goes.

I ordered myself 2 extra bowls and lids yesterday and I can't wait for them to come. I want to put off all of my orders until they get here Heeeeheee.

Heehee, no it won't suck animals, well maybe really small ones that will fit in the hose, haha!

It has a central cannister that most people put in the garage or basement. Then there is a duct system attached to outlets in the wall. SO you attach the vaccuum hose to the wall outlet and turn on the vaccuum and everything goes through the hose into the duct system and into the huge cannister, which only needs emptying about once or twice a year. So then they came out with this little vent thing that you attach under your cupboards in the kitchen, close to the flloor or you can put it in a workshop or other area. Anyway, it opens up with a switch. So you just sweep all of the crud off the floor towards it and it sucks it through the duct work to the canister. I swear some lady invented that sweep attachment, haha! Great little invention.
Haha, I am with you though, something you could just turn on and it would suck out all undesirables, would be great, haha!

Hey you, you are too pretty to cover, even with icing sugar you likely look like a model!

I also have the shield and have found limited use for it. It is handy when I lower the bowl while the mixer is running to let the icing or whatever whips off of the paddle. I have been using the damp towel method since I read about it on here and it works great. I noticed when I was just using the pouring shield by itself the powdered sugar would fly up and out of the shield and land on the shield and the counter. I think it may be possible that I have the wrong size shield as I received mine as a gift but after reading all the posts here I dont think that is the problem.

Its only a matter of time before I get another bowl mixing up different batters and different frostings, it becomes a pain cleaning the bowl. It would be more convenient to clean the bowl while something else is mixing or all the bowls when I am done.
