Yeah, I also saw that one, Buck.
Chef Bobby Flay was his special guest on the show. They both were making a desert near the last segment of the program, each using a Viking of their own.
They both had trouble with them. Haha!! The bowls became embarrassingly stuck to the bases of BOTH machines. And they just couldn't get them off!
And you're right!! What's the use in buying this piece of crap if it's gonna do that?
Emeril went from sugar to crap (haha!!) when he did that! But I imagine that he has no control over that, but he should certainly complain about it!
Notice that the show Emeril Live has been revamped with a brighter more modern setting in the background. On the older episodes of the show he uses the green K'Aid mixer, but on the newer spisodes he uses the Viking mixer.
Like you said, why go through the hassle and embarrassment of having to lift the whole machine and turn it over just to scrape or empty the bowl?
JB1, I think you're better off buying either a K'Aid Stand Mixer or the Electrolux Assistant. They're both good.
