Great Gadget - Side Swipe

It has been a while since I showed y'all a favorite gadget.  While I was baking this weekend it dawned on me that if you don't have one of these, you need one.  This is a Side Swipe beater for a KitchenAid mixer.  I've had this beater for at least 3 years.  I use it ALL THE TIME!  There are two great reasons why I love this gadget.

1. It is dishwasher safe!  The beaters made by KitchenAid for the 6 qt. mixer are aluminum and will corrode in the dishwasher.  This beater is made of durable plastic and silicone.  Toss it in the top rack on the dishwasher and clean up is finished.

2. Since purchasing this beater I spend very little time scraping the bowl.  It scrapes the bowl as it mixes so you don't have to.  No more unmixed ingredients left in the bottom of the bowl!

If you're looking for a Christmas gift that will not be neglected, this is it.  I use it for everything from thick cookie dough to cake batter.  I absolutely love it!

Happy baking,
