It has been so sunny the past few days in Belgium, that the need to meet with friends and to hang out in parks or gardens came up in force. Chilling with some nice cooled water or lemonade with some delicious treats next to it and just hang out and chat… That’s my favourite way to pass time.
Off course, since I moved to Brussels I had to start to build up my arsenal of kitchen tools, because before I used everything my parents had. Now it’s my turn to buy stuff for my kitchen and what a feeling of freedom did it give me! Looking on the internet to see what tools I needed, seeing all the possibilities finally gave me the feeling I’m a real adult. Seeing how much it all costs though, overwhelmed me a little bit. So I started making a list of what I wanted to buy and then I put it in the correct order I wanted to buy them in. (I love making lists and I had a blast making this one.)
The first thing on my list was a hand mixer, preferably by KitchenAid. My kitchen is mostly white and gray, so I want to contrast this with buying my tools in bright red. And I must say I’m in love with the ‘Empire Red’ colour of some of the tools by KitchenAid. I searched all the shops and internet shops around here to see which one of them sold the KitchenAid hand mixer, in Empire Red off course, and no one had it. It was either sold out or they only had it in black or gray.
But then came an e-mail by CoolBlue. The hand mixer was back in stock! But only 4 of them! I had to make a decision really quick, because I had a birthday party coming up and I hate showing up empty handed, without some tasty gifts. So I jumped. I ordered it and I don’t regret it at all. I’m in love with it.
It only took them 2 days to get it to me and I off course immediately used it. It’s easy to use. There are only 3 buttons and the way it works is really logical. There’s nothing hard about it. The handle lays easy in the hand and the different accessories that came with it are really solid and so easy to clean.
It has a powerful motor and can easily be used for softer or harder doughs. It’s one of my favourite tools and I feel it is a real step-up of other stuff I was using before. It made my baking so much easier. And the colour, I mean have you seen the colour? It’s such a beautiful red. It’s perfect.
After this buy, I’m a happy girl and I can’t wait to get my hands on other stuff by KitchenAid. Which brands do you like to use in your kitchen? And what do you think are the top 5 tools you need? Hit me up in the comments! And share the love of cooking.
