I am already thinking Christmas and the holidays...
What is everyone's favorite Kitchen Aid mixer accessory?? I was thinking of getting the pasta roller for my mom for Christmas... but I am not sure what she would get the most use from. Currently, she doesn't have anything but the basics (but hints constantly at how she wishes she had attachments...)
Personally I like the pasta roller. Have that set. The only attachment we don't use is the angel hair pasta. It's never worked. The other cutters have been well worth the expense. Wouldn't mind having the meat grinder * Hint to my family*
If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.
My favorite so far is the FGA (Food Grinder Attachment). Works pretty well. The meat should be cut into strips and then put in the freezer for 1/2 hour so that it's ice cold for grinding. This prevents the fat from binding up in the auger.
We also have the $175 pasta press from Williams Sonoma. HATE IT...so far. It may be recipe issues or overworked dough. The cooked product has a rubbery texture.

I use the meat grinder a lot, the sausage stuffer some, the pasta roller a few times a year. Can't imagine the need for the citrus juicer. Is there an ice cream freezer or is that part of something else? I get good home made ice cream at the farm across the road from me so??!! :)
