Make your mixer the ultimate multitasker!

Without a doubt, a KitchenAid stand mixer is one of the most coveted kitchen appliances. It is consistently rated one of the best stand mixers for its power, consistency, and durability. Plus, all those color and decal options practically beg to be displayed on your kitchen counter at all times! But those who really love their mixers know the best kept secret is just how versatile they are. Enter: the best KitchenAid attachments!

While stand mixers are often touted as the go-to tool for bakers to make everything from Bundt cakes to all types of bread, a KitchenAid can go beyond baking. With one quick turn of a knob, an attachment goes on, and they become the ultimate multitasker for any kind of cook. They save a ton of prep time by transforming into pasta machine, a shredder, a meat grinder, a food scale, and more. And while you can certainly buy appliances like food processors and ice cream makers separately, the KitchenAid allows you to save space―and in many cases, money―since you already have the basic machinery already purchased.

Since you will have to buy the attachments separately, you do want to make sure they are worth the investment. That's why we've rounded up the best KitchenAid attachments here for you to consider. The best part about this list is that almost all of them will fit any standard model, from the bestselling five-quart Artisan to the their compact mini and even their large capacity professional models. So, you can focus on what you need instead of what you have and make your mixer the ultimate multitasker of your dreams!

If you've ever made pasta from scratch, you know just how hard it is to get the dough perfectly thin by hand. This pasta roller and cutter set is a bestseller for a reason, because it solves the whole painstaking process in mere minutes. With the same settings and functions of an artisan manual press, it uses the powerful motor to roll the dough sheet-thin and cuts precise fettuccine and spaghetti noodles. The sturdy stainless steel will last for years, making it a very worthy investment.

It's hard to name something faster than a food processor for kitchen prep. This attachment does everything a stand alone machine does―besides take up more space. Not only does it slice and dice, but it can shred and julienne, too. You can even adjust the thickness of the slices for the ultimate customization. Fruit, veggies, cheese―you name it, and it's minced in minutes.

True meat lovers know that freshly grinding your own meat for burgers and sausages brings your kitchen game to a whole other level. But manual grinders take a lot of time and arm strength. This attachment does and has everything you need to replace that traditional grinder: a sturdy metal grinder, fine, medium, and coarse plates, a food pusher, and sausage stuffing tubes. Make quick chicken burgers or get fancy with artisanal sausages. Either way, you are done in a fraction of the time.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for an attachment that makes ice cream and sorbet just like stand alone machines. All you have to do is freeze the special insulated bowl in advance, pop in the dasher, and in less than 30 minutes, you have fresh ice cream. One warning though (besides just how much ice cream you'll eat!) is that you have to make sure the bowl fits your specific model. Check the fine print first.

Oh, you thought there was only one pasta attachment? Think again! This press mimics the professional dried pasta machines and can make spaghetti, bucatini, rigatoni, fusilli, and large or small macaroni. You'll be hard pressed (get it?) to find a manual machine on the market that can make these shapes, because hand cranks just can't produce this type of power.

Whether you have a tilt-head or bowl-lift machine, it is still difficult and messy to sift ingredients like flour over the top. And all bakers know just how precise measurements need to be. This attachment solves both of those issues by being a combination scale and sifter in one. It holds up to four pounds of dry ingredients at a time, and the scale can be detached and used separately any time.

If you like the idea of the food processor, but really only need it for the slicing and shredding functions, this set is for you. It is compact and has three different sizes to cover all your needs: fine, medium, and coarse. Prep everything from cucumber slices for salad to finely shredded carrots for cake without touching a manual grater.
