The KA mixer blade showdownApril 18, 2008 at 1:40 PM | Posted in non-cupcake, technology | 13 Comments
I’ve been drooling over the SideSwipe Blade ever since it came on the market. Its been on many of my numerous wish lists over the last few months. Actually I am embarrassed to admit how many times I’ve drooled over the video demo on the website. There have been nothing but rave reviews from fellow cupcake-ers and bakers that own the sideswipe about its ability to scrape down the bowl clean. Ah music to my “no batter left behind” ears.
But hold the scrape?
Looks like there’s a new blade in town.
Introducing the Beater Blade! The idea is the same as the SideSwipe – an attachment that beats, scrapes and folds the ingredients efficiently for your mixer. But the Beater Blade promotes that they fit various different mixers: Kitchenaid (tilt and lift models), Cuisinart, Viking and Delonghi. As of right now they aren’t available for purchase until May 2008 through various internet vendors but check out the video demo to see the Beater Blade in action!
Which one beats the competition? Guess we’ll have to wait until May to find out. Stay tuned.
Blogger’s note: I have to say I am leaning towards the BeaterBlade b/c of the versatility but I’ll have the price comparison be my decision maker when it comes out in May.
EDIT: Just an FYI for IHC readers… I contacted BeaterBlade inquiring about a sneak peep on the price and Gary Fallowes, the inventor of the BeaterBlade, emailed me promptly to let me know that it will be $24.95 for the smaller blade (tilt head models), $29.95 for the 5 & 6 quart Bowl Lift KA models, and the Cuisinart/Viking/DeLonghi 7-quart is $40 because of the metal parts. (So far I am already impressed with the prompt response!)
