Enter To Win A KitchenAid 7 Quart Stand Mixer for Valentine’s Day!

Since my Birthday contest giveaway was such a great success, I decided to run one more for Valentine’s Day! For this contest which will run through until midnight February 14th, I am very excited to be giving away an amazing 7-Quart Bowl-Lift Residential Stand Mixer generously donated by the wonderful folks at KitchenAid. (MSRP is $549!)

I personally couldn’t live without my KitchenAid stand mixer and use it for everything from making pasta, kneading dough, grinding meat and making sausage, and even making ravioli with my new ravioli attachment I got for Christmas. My stand mixer is over 8 years old and is the smaller 6 Quart version but it has never let me down for anything I’ve used it for throughout the years. This 7 Quart KitchenAid mixer is even larger and more powerful than my prized mixer and even comes in different colors to match your kitchen decor. Once you own a KitchenAid Stand Mixer there are an amazingly large number of additional attachment accessories you can purchase that easily fit to your mixer that will to do everything from chop, make ice cream, grind meat, and make pasta, to name just a few!

Debie Damato – I would love a new, bright red Kitchaid mixer. I currently have a much smaller Kitchenaid that we have had for years and years. You wouldn’t believe the family time we get out of the old mixer. Everyone gets involved in our cookie making, bread baking, ravioli stuffing, pasta protruding, ice cream creaming et al. Our yearly family Pizelle baking sessions would be greatly enhanced with the much bigger 7qt. mixer! Everyone participates – from my daughters to my son-in-law to all my nephews – and even included my one-year old grandson this year! We have created some wonderful family memories around the old mixer and I can only imagine the wonderful times we could have with a new 7qt. Kitchenaid Mixer. Thanks for the chance!
