    I like using mine to make egg-based dishes. I like getting the extra air into the mix, feels like it makes my (crust-free) quiches much fluffier. Just beware that it will abuse tomatoes, have to add them after the mixing.

    Bumping up this old thread.. Am thinking of getting rid of my Kitchenaid, as I primarily used it for making Pizza Dough.
    I have a separate meat grinder, so don't need it for that. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks,

    We actually got the meat grinder attachment, and it sucks. So sad.

    The only time I bust out my Kitchenaid anymore it seems is when I get a request for non-paleo foodstuffs. Other than that, my sous vide machine is seeing waaaaay more action.

    About the only time I ever use it is for the grinder attachment. I'm sure you could use it to make herb butters, or whipped heaven. It would probably help with valentino brownies.

    Souffle. Easier to make than you think, endlessly variable, flippin' delicious. Don't think I'd endeavor to make without the KA though.

    And yes, I'll make the occasional non-Primal item and it's very handy for doughs.

    thanks all.. very good suggestions..
    whipped heaven sounds very good.. found the recipe on this forum.

    Will come in handy the next time I make a prime rib roast.. with horseradish cream, recipe from the Ad Hoc cook book. Basically whipped cream with horseradish.

    Really? I have the grinder attachment and I think it works pretty well. I make sure to freeze it well beforehand and i also freeze the meat for a few minutes before grinding.

    The sausage stuffer attachment on the other hand... I'll just say it's terrible.

    I make ice cream (with the ice cream bowl)
    I use it to whip things, such as chocolate mousse made with avocado base.
    and I just made a pumpkin bake with it, which I hope turns out epic. Its currently baking.

    I made five pounds of breakfast sausage last Christmas, and it took two hours to grind and left me with a sore arm from having to constantly mash, mash, mash things down.

    I also partly froze the mix and the pieces. Didn't matter. Too much smear and way too much effort. I'm planning on working a little overtime in the next few weeks so I can afford a dedicated grinder and have it in time for making sausages for the family for Christmas. :3

    After all, who doesn't want a little sausage stuffed in their stocking?

    Awesome. I am sure a dedicated grinder would work better. I at least want a dedicated stuffer. I really like the link sausage I made, but it was waaaay too much work. The meat would barely feed through. I kept pushing with the masher and all it did was create a vacuum so that when I pulled back to push again, it just pulled out the meat out with it. Ugh. I still have nightmares, hahaha.
