If you love cooking and baking and you own a KitchenAid stand mixer then you will love a KitchenAid cheese grater. The new flat stainless steel grater from KitchenAid is the ideal tool for preparing creamy, cheesy, or crispy cheeses. These mixers are extremely versatile and can be used to grate vegetables, nuts, cheeses, and even ice cream. You can prepare a variety of different sauces and dressings with the flat stainless steel blade. The flexible rotating blades of this grater are made with an impact resistant, cutting surface.

An Overview

The kitchenaid cheese grater comes in several different sizes. There is the smaller four-quart model for up to five cups of food at once. This model also makes it easy to peel tough vegetables or cheeses, which make them easier to cut. For larger families or groups of family and friends, there is a larger nine-quart model. The nine-quart model not only makes it easy to prepare large amounts of food, but it makes it easy to prepare many different varieties of cheese sauces and dressings. The larger capacity model also features a slicer attachment, which allows for easier slicing of thin layers of cheese.

The majority of models of the KitchenAid cheese grater come with a plastic chopping board with twelve individual side plates. However, some models come with an additional fifteen side plates called “cones” which are interchangeable. These separate cones can be used to grate foods in different shapes and sizes. It is an important feature to ensure that the blades of your KitchenAid cheese grater are able to chop food into clean, uniform pieces.

The KitchenAid grater with the cheese cone attachment has an option for adjusting its rotary power. The main attachment for this model is a twenty-four inch steel bar. Other optional attachments include a serrated blade, a four-sided scraper, and a wire whisk. Depending on how you plan to use your KitchenAid mixer and how much food you plan to process, these additional pieces may not be necessary.

The optional stainless steel rotating brush allows you to grate flaxseed oil and vegetable oil without using a food processor. The brush’s long handle will also enable you to move the grating blades closer together, increasing the speed of the shredding process. If you frequently need to grate hard to remove spices and herbs, the KitchenAid food processor accessory is a good investment. For people who do not use a food processor, but simply want a wide tooth grater with very good cutting power, the KitchenAid stand grater is the way to go. In addition to allowing you to easily grate nutmeg and garlic, the stand model also comes with a nine-inch stainless steel spatula.

For maximum performance, you should invest in a high-quality Kitchen Aid blender or food processor. Although the majority of Kitchen Aid blenders and processors come with a plastic lid, it is important to remember that the steel design increases the heat transfer from the blades. This means that the internal components of your Kitchen Aid blender and processor will cook faster than a plastic lid. The top rack on the KitchenAid rotary cheese grater is especially important for those who need to use the product at higher temperatures. Because the blades are located at the top of the appliance, you will need to protect them by using a plastic or rubber pad that is placed under the lid.

It is important to consider the possibility that your KitchenAid blender and shredder may develop a bad odor after continuous use. This odor can be eliminated if you follow a few simple steps. First, you should clean the blades and motor using a disinfecting solution and a high-quality cooking spray designed to kill bacteria. To maintain good performance, you should clean the Kitchen Aid dishwasher every time you are prepared to use it again.

Bottom Line

In addition, you should regularly replace the blades in your KitchenAid grater and stand mixer. You should also inspect the moving parts and accessories of your KitchenAid machine. As you work with the Kitchen Aid blender and stand mixer, you may notice that it begins to gradually lose its sharp edge. If you notice any cracks in the blades, it is recommended that you replace the blades immediately. By taking these simple steps, you can greatly increase the life span of your KitchenAid appliances.
