New Competition – Win a KitchenAid Artisan 9 Speed Hand Mixer

21/03/2014 | By

Cast your mind back, dear, gentle, reader – if you  will – to the dim recesses of time. Actually, if you can just think back to my blog post of late last week that will do the trick. I posted a recipe for a deliciously quick Cheese Batter Bread which I whipped up with the new KitchenAid Artisan 9 Speed hand Mixer. Thanks to the lovely folk at KitchenAid Australia, I can offer one of you the chance to win one of these snappy little work-horses to play with in your own kitchen!

The new Kitchenaid Artisan 9 Speed Hand Mixer is a super convenient, go-to small appliance for those quick jobs where you want a bit of  speedy grunt, without having to bring out the big guns. It features a 9 speed electronic digital control, with a soft start to avoid violent splashing, and has an electronic mixing sensor which  will adjust to the resistance of what you are mixing for smooth, consistent operation.The powerful motor is also surprisingly quiet.

It comes in a gorgeous range of colours and also with a range of new stainless steel attachments including; redesigned Turbo Beaters that are heavy duty and dishwasher safe; a Pro Whisk that makes short work of whipping ingredients such as egg whites, cream and mousse; Dough Hooks that quickly and effortlessly knead yeast dough, and finally a Liquid Blending Rod to whiz up smoothies or shakes in seconds.

Valued at $199 and just in time for Mothers Day, I have ONE of these little treasures for a lucky reader to win in your choice of colour – Almond Cream, Onyx Black, Empire Red or Cranberry. Entry is simple – just tell me what your favourite, fast dish is which will be made even faster by using one of these little beauties.

    Baklava with that tasty twist,
    Full of goodness, I cannot resist,
    Filled with flavour galore,
    My guests simply adore.

  2. Belinda

    I love to make pavlova but when I first tried, I used a hand whisk. BIG MISTAKE! A proper electric whisk makes the base so much better and a kitchen aid would work a charm on my Aussie masterpiece!

  3. Narelle Rock

    Chocolate self-saucing pudding that could be whipped up in a matter of minutes with this beauty, eaten even quicker as it will taste divine and warm my insides!

  4. jacqui bartlett

    I think i would try and whip up a sponge…. only ever made one once and it flopped…

  5. Natalie Stoute

    Coffee Cake. Old fashioned but a big favourite of mine. Mmm… 🙂

  6. Benjamin Travia

    Tuna Dip. My Mum’s specialty.

  7. Catrina Murray

    French toast on lazy Sundays – I’m super lazy and hate whisking eggs 😉

  8. Alex

    It would be meringue because at the moment that requires cracking out the whole stand mixer.

  9. Kate

    Pancake batter to make everyone happy on a Sunday morning including the cook !

  10. Alice

    My favourite dish, that would be made easier by KitchenAid Artisan Mixer is a self saucing butterscotch pudding. A childhood favourite!

  11. bron

    I would make a delicious olive bread and then use some of it to make a bruchetta . Having a cranberry kitchenaid would make it even more yummo!

  12. Marian@Apricot Tart

    With cooler weather approaching my favourite fast dish made better with a KitchenAid Artisan 9 Speed Hand Mixer would be Avgolemono Soup – Greece’s famous egg and lemon soup. The secret is in the whisking of those eggs and the stirring of them into the hot stock – handled admirably by this little machine methinks!

  13. Judy

    A throw-it-all-in-a-bowl Devil’s Food Cake.

  14. Anna Johnston

    Chocolate Lasagna… Yep, it’s a thing. Oreos, chocolate pudding mix, and cream cheese whipped into submission and layered to create possibly one of the best feeds known to mankind. Don’t know bout you, but I want this in my life and in my belly ASAP! Happy weekend to you. 🙂

  15. Karlene

    Corned meat fritters – a great use of left over meat. The batter can be mixing while I chop.

  16. Vickie

    I would definitely mix up a yummy cheesecake.

  17. Merrian

    I’d probably whip up some hazelnut meringues with some free-range egg whites topped with lashings of fresh Fleurieu cream and berries.

  18. Grace

    Cupcakes for every day of the week. All the cupcakes would be made with the KitchenAid Artisan Hand Mixer.

  19. Karen

    Raspberry, coconut and sour cream muffins – a family favourite!

  20. Jill

    W H I P P E D C R E A M!!!!!! (^^^)

  21. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    What a nifty giveaway. I love Kitchenaid products.

    I would make a quicker chocolate fondant for dessert.

  22. Elizabeth

    A beautiful pavlova! My little mixer struggles to do the job…

  23. Hotly Spiced

    What a great giveaway; this is a gadget I would love to have in my kitchen – in the red colour. One of my favourite dishes to make is individual pavlovas with lime curd and pomegranate seeds – and you certainly don’t want to be whisking the egg whites and sugar by hand! xx

  24. Jasmine


  25. Barbara

    Cream to go with my cupcakes

  26. Julia Mason

    My Thai Pumpkin Soup is so delish it always needs a second and third scoop! Yum!

    I’d use it to whip up eggs (6-8), cream and milk for my super fast, super rich, super yum vegetable frittata, which I make with any leftover vegs (especially pumpkin) and tons of grated cheese on top.

  28. Sophie

    My cappuccino pavlova would be much quicker with a KitchenAid hand mixer! Especially the whipped cream to go on top.

    A Kitchenaid hand mixer would make pavlova making so much easier! Christmas dessert would be sorted in no time

  33. Andrea Butler

    Our favourite dish often in the middle of the week is pasta carbonara, so the kitchenaid will certainly help me with my home made pasta dough, and then I can pass it over to my husband to make the carbonara sauce!! Perfect division of labour along with a nice glass of wine!!!

  34. Fiona @TIFFIN bite sized food adventures

    Well you had me last week at 3 of my favourite words – cheese, batter, bread…

    For me, it would laso likely be a batter. I’ve made Nigella’s posh version of Toad in the Hole quite a few times and a smooth, airy batter is best so I’m sure this would do the trick.

  35. Chloe Barber

    Buttermilk scones with a light and fluffy whipped cream, oh I “knead” this !

    Potatoes and herb hash browns with steak and hollandaise sauce!

  45. Jess J

    Chocolate cake! But I cant stand mixing the batter by hand.

  46. Corinne

    One bowl chocolate cake – much quicker and more even batter mixing when the chocolate craving hits. Plus, the icing will be made in half the time too ’cause all I’ll need to do is swap out the beaters and grab a fresh bowl!

  47. Nicole W

    ~ Coconut Pineapple Custard Cake ~……. it’s an Easter tradition in our home an it is delicious!

    Would love to use for scrambled eggs I have heard kitchen aid products seem to give eggs more air and make hem lighter

  65. Helen

    I’d use that dough hook to make my little Brioche buns. Fresh from the oven for Sunday brunch would be pretty impressive!

  66. Emily Miller

  80. jane gardam

    Can’t wait to whip up a beautiful Pavlova, mine and my families favourite.

  83. Clinton

    Chocolate mousse, an easy and beautiful dessert made all that much easier!
