My KA Today

So today I used my KA to make:

  • Two loaves of white bread.
  • Bread crumbs from the leftover bit of sourdough round I made a few days ago.
  • Ground 4 pounds of meat to make meat loaf. (Some for eaten now, some for freezin for later).
All in all a good day with the KA.

As an update I also used the fruit strainer thing. First time for that, kinda weird but I needed to get my mango into goo form for my BBQ sauce. Yum.

You have to buy attachments separately to get it to do non-mixing stuff. Expensive is relative. You can get a basic model for around $250-$300. Attachments run $50-$150 each. You're expected to use it yourself, operators are another extra cost option.

I think my operator option I have now needs traded in. All just a joke.

Thanks Andy! I'm gonna look into it. First I might make sure she doesn't already have one, made that mistake before.
