has kitchen stuff on clearance!

Check out the clearance sale on! We just snagged this hot little number after waiting about 6 years, 5 months, and 2 weeks for the price differential to finally drop between U.S. and German prices down to more reasonable levels.

    You’ll love that. The grinding attachment changed my life.

    I don’t just want to know how the sausage is made – I want to dictate!

    Oooh, that’s hot! Sorry, had to quote Paris on that.
    I love, love, LOVE my KitchenAid. My in-laws brought it back for us/me last year for Christmas. Have it hooked up to a transformer — works awesome. One day, I hope to get the pasta machine for it. They are the best machines ever! :)

      My sister and brother-in-law like their pasta making attachments. We’re going to give “real” Italian sausage a try here, since we just can’t seem to find anything close to it in stores.

      Then, maybe we’ll do the pasta-making thing too.

    I thought I would come and say hello and


    I am SO envious, this is number two on my list of Things I Want But Will In All Likelihood Never Own (recently pipped by the €2.8million mill house near Eltville). Congratulations, and may your sausage-making be long and prosperous.

    Brian: Our Siemens food processor, with its spinning disks, still probably wins for slicing/grating/julienning vegetables like potatoes and onions for Potato Latkes or carrots for Plov — reviews online anyway seem to indicate that. But grinding stuff up was a big motivator in this purchase.

    Tiffany: We thought about that, but didn’t want to have to deal with the transformer, and I had a strong suspicion that using it with the transformer would void the warranty. And I also suspected that buying it in the U.S. would obligate the use of a U.S. warranty return center, should that become necessary (but that’s just a gut feeling on my part). So, we were biding our time until this significant price drop came our way.

    Frau Dietz: Welcome! And stay tuned — I suppose we’ll start with this recipe or this one. Both have turned out fine as loose sausage or patties. I sort of wish grilling was still in season; I’d love to try making my own sausage and then grilling at someone else’s house (grilling is a no-go at ours, sadly, owing to a lack of a Hof).

    Thanks so much for posting this… I’ve been looking at these since I got here as well, but had stopped. When the German noticed the computer opened to this, he thought it was a great anniversary present and now I am the proud owner of this thing of beauty… in the US, I never knew what color to get, the choice bewildered me, but here it was easy, with red being significantly cheaper than any other color. And it’s beautiful.

What's your take on it?
