I should probably not be writing this post right now. I should probably count to 10. I should probably follow my mother’s rule and say nothing if I can’t say something nice. I should probably be the nice blogger and never bash a potential advertiser. I should be thinking about pretty things like puppies and butterflies. But, I am going to ignore all of those rules and dive right in with a rant, even in this season of goodwill and good cheer. My Kitchen-Aid mixer is stuck – again.
I just made pizza dough because Mr. Right and I are going to eat pizza and watch basketball on television. I used the paddle attachment and let the mixer do the kneading. Everything went great until it was time to remove the bowl from the mixer to clean it. It wouldn’t budge – again.
That’s right. This has happened to me over and over and over again. It’s not fun having a mixing bowl full of delicate cake batter and then not be able to remove the bowl to pour the batter into the pans. I even sprayed it with cooking spray before I started mixing the dough. It didn’t help at all.
I thought I was the only person this has happened to and never bothered to contact the company. Then Jordan was here in November when it happened, and she said she had the same problem with her Kitchen Aid. And get this – there is even a video on Youtube with instructions on how to get it to release. And just as an FYI – Kitchen Aid came up with the four steps for releasing the bowl, and the last step involves a mallet. So, they are obviously aware of the problem. There could be hundreds of us out there dealing with this major inconvenience. Thousands maybe, because over 11,000 viewers have watched the video.
So tell me, have any of you had this problem? Please let us know. Okay, I am now going to go watch Youtube to follow the four-step process to hopefully get the darn thing unstuck.
Thanks for reading. I hope I didn’t turn you completely off. Please come back tomorrow, and we will for sure be more pleasant.
