Mixer bowls...

I'm just starting to do a bit more baking. Yesterday I was doing a cheesecake recipe and there where three separate mixing processes (1. cream cheese and chocolate, 2. egg whites and 3. whipping cream). It turned into a bit of a fire drill cleaning the bowl fast enough between mixes. Is it worthwhile to buy a second bowl, or is this recipe just a multi-bowl rarity?

I have always believed it is better to have 2 bowls for my mixer!

As a matter of fact, I have 3. Two are the heavier stainless steel bowls, and the thinner stainless steel bowl has a copper insert for whipping egg whites.

Does KitchenAid have a copper insert available? I know copper is best for whipping egg whites.

They used to have the copper bowl inserts for the 4 1/2 qt and the 5 qt bowls. They weren't made by Kitchenaid, but some other company and they are discontinued.

Some companies may still have some in stock. I saw the 4 1/2 qt copper liners here: http://fantes.com/mixer_accessories.htm

I bought my 5 qt copper liner about 7 years ago from this company: European Kitchen Bazaar 1-800-225-0760 pob 4099 Waterbury CT 06704


Who knows....they may still have a couple.

Thanks. Unfortunately, they are now discontinued at Fantes also.

Did you try European Kitchen Bazaar?

I remember the company who used to make them -- The Bridge Corporation. Maybe they still do. I don't know.

I love copper bowls. You can whip up whites as quickly by hand as some mixers can accomplish, and they're so versatile for syrups and candies, as well. Unfortunately, they're about as much as some mortgage payments in cost! I have a few, gratefully inherited. But I have several pyrex versions that I couldn't exist without on a day to day basis!

Love pyrex, too!

But you can take my share of steel ones.....

I like pyrex, stainless steel, and copper bowls.

Why don't you like stainless steel bowls Audeo?

Edited to say:
I have some emails in to various places, and posted a request for information on the Kitchenaid forum for you Otter! I will let you know if I hear the copper bowl inserts are still available.

I got ahold of Bridge Kitchenware. They did not have copper inserts for 5 qt mixers -- the actually had heavy copper bowls with brass handles! I am checking to see if they have any left, since they are discontinued.

They have two left! They are scratch and dent left-overs. They were originally $185 plus shipping. I am buying one of them for $127.50 shipping included! Here is the email address: s.bridge@ix.netcom.com


I saw one on Ebay a few weeks ago, but it went for about $120 plus shipping!

What did European Kitchen Bazaar say on the copper insert? I have their old catalog here.
