1. Try pulling pork.
Who says that mixers are just for cakes, muffins, and desserts? Put your prepared pork for pulled pork sandwiches into the mixer and let the dough hook do the pulling for you. No messy hands to deal with and no sauce stained sleeves.

2. Make easy chicken salad.
Place your baked/boneless chicken into your mixer and let the dough hook shred the chicken for you, which is then perfect for chicken casseroles and of course chicken salad. No messy hands and no waiting for the chicken to cool first. 

How to Shred Chicken with a Kitchen Aid Mixer

How to shred chicken in your Kitchen-Aid mixer:

  1. I shredded a pound of cooked chicken breast straight from the slow cooker in under 30 seconds. Take your meat straight from cooking and toss it in the mixing bowl.
  2. Make sure the beater attachment is in place.
  3. Raise the bowl and hit a low power setting for about 30 seconds.
  4. Enjoy you shredded meat.

3. Make perfect meatloaf.
Use the dough hook along with your meatloaf mixture. It will mix the ingredients perfectly, and you don’t have to find yourself elbow deep in raw meat, onions, breadcrumbs, and other less than fun to touch meatloaf ingredients.

4. Make your own splash guard.
Cut a hole into a plastic lid that fits the top of your mixing bowl. Place the lid on the bowl and lower the mixing extension through the hole to the ingredients. The lid will help keep splatter under control easily and effectively! {If you don’t want to make one, you can order a splash guard for your Kitchen-Aid mixer!}

5. Make it glide with ease.
Keep a soft cloth or towel under the mixer so you can slide it across the kitchen counters easily and without knocking it over or causing spills.

6. Give it some personality.
Use craft decals found at most craft stores to dress up your mixer. You can use all sorts of peel and stick shapes, designs, color, words, etc. Be creative and give your mixer some personality! Check out some of the decals posted HERE.

7. Make play dough.
Use your mixer to make children’s play dough recipes. This way your hands never have to touch the glitter or food coloring that is often involved and can make quite a mess.

8. Utilize the wire whip.
Utilize the wire whip for those tasks that use to make your wrists ache. Tasks include whipping eggs and of course frosting recipes. The mixer will do the job with a light touch and no sore wrists required. See how to use all of your Kitchen Aid beaters

11. Get creative with mashed vegetables.
Trying to lay off the carbs? Use your mixer to make more than mashed potatoes. Try mashed cauliflower, mashed peas, or mashed sweet potatoes for a tasty and healthier alternative.

12. Use it for crafting.
Your mixer can be used for all sorts of crafting projects. It can be used to mix up various powders such as resin, various paints, adhesives, or other supplies that need to be mixed and melded. Just be sure to thoroughly wash your bowls and attachments, and wash them right away so none of the products stick, stain, or damage the device.

13. Make your own pet food/treats.
Your mixer can be used to mix chicken, vegetables, and other natural ingredients perfect for whipping into your own dog food and treats. Try adding some baked chicken to rice, peas, and carrots for the perfect, healthy treat for your dog that is easy to chew and enjoy.

14. Make homemade marshmallows.
Find a fun recipe for marshmallows online and use your mixer to get the job done. It will whip the ingredients into the perfect, fluffy finish!

15. Make your own butter.
You can make all sorts of flavored butters with your mixer and just a few basic ingredients. Search out a recipe for herb butter or another flavored butter online and use your mixer to make it come to life.
