Rev-A-Shelf Mixer Lift

Rev A Shelf Mixer Lift

Stand mixers are a fairly bulky, as kitchen gadgets go, and they take up a lot of countertop real estate.

Pourfect Whisk-A-Bowl

Stand mixers are definitely a useful tool in the kitchen if you do a lot of baking, but they don’t always deliver perfect results. For instance, standard paddle attachments don’t scrape the sides of the bowl, meaning that you’ll have to scrape down the bowl a few times during mixing just as you would if you were mixing by hand or with a smaller hand ...
