    Just FYI, Sur La Table is having a sale starting today with free shipping over $59 plus rebates in the form of visa gift cards on various KA appliances and attachments.

    I don't know if you folks in AU, Europe and UK can get these deals or not, but if they do honor the free shipping and rebates, there are some pretty good deals.

    I took a look and there is some good stuff on sale . I suspect shipping charges to Europe might be hefty though... I would need to phone them to find out - this is from their FAQ:

    Be careful buying electrical equipment from the USA....their electricity is only 120v so its not like buying from the EU where its just a case of changing the plug. You'd need a pretty powerful step down transformer to convert our 230v to a voltage the machine can safely use, which would probably wipe out any savings.

    Well, most of the attachments don't use electricity.

    That's a good point...I'd not thought about the attachments :okay: I was just wanting to warn any European-based members who may not have thought about the different electricity supplies coz it would have been an expensive mistake.

    Looking at international sellers on ebay can give you a rough idea of the postage. But don't forget to add import duty (2.2% I believe on kitchen appliances), VAT on the total price including postage and the RM or other carrier's customs handling fee. Usually all the charges and fees mean its cheaper to buy from the UK/EU :(

    We have a new toy for our KitchenAid mixer. Now its time to see what we can create using the Vegetable Sheeter. Sushi with cucumber "nori" anyone?

    I saw something like this in action on a TV cooking show the other day. It was a bit like a pasta machine for vegetables.

    Yup, there is an infomercial devoted to this attachment. I never watched it. I really don't pay attention to infomercials as most of the products are garbage.

    I was debating whether I should get another KA stand mixer.

    Kenwood Stand Mixer..jpg Cheftronic Stand Mixer..jpg

    These 2 stand mixers look almost alike!
    They pretty much do the same things. You can even COOK things right in the bowl of both machines right on to base!!

    The Kenwood cost about $999, the Cheftronic cost about $250. Looks like they are made by the same company. :wink:

    The KA now has a bowl that you can cook things in too.

    I think we might have seen the same show, I just can't remember which one.

    Probably not - it was a UK show. I can't remember which. It could have been Saturday Kitchen which is a regular live BBC cookery programme.

    I saw that online, & the prices on those are pretty steep. About $250 to 275 - the cost for a new stand mixer!

    Well, not as bad as I thought.

    $195 for the tilt-head one, $220 or so for the bowl-lift one. Just checked on Amazon.com.
