KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer KSM150 Review

KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer KSM150 Review

Share Button

KitchenAid Artisan 5 Quart Stand MixerI have a baking specialty, baking biscotti, and recently I broke my third hand held mixer while making biscotti dough, so I decided it was time to upgrade to more heavy duty stand mixer.  One of the problems with making biscotti is that the dough can be very tough to mix, so a mixer needs to have a lot of power, and also be made for mixing cookie dough with strong beater.  In the past, I have worn out the motors of mixers, and broken beaters.

I wanted to have a mixer that would be long lasting and versatile, so that our family would be able to use it for other cooking projects.  My husband likes to make cookies, and I also like to experiment with making fresh hummus, and other dips.  I had been using my Cuisinart, but it is not ideal.

Since I go through hand held mixers so much, I was willing to invest good money in this new mixer, but I also wanted to get a good deal.  After much thorough research, I decided to buy a KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer from Amazon.

For those of you who know me well, you would have thought that I would buy this mixer in teal or orange, because I am an artist, and I often do buy items in unusual colors to brighten up a room, but I ended up buying the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer in black because it was significantly cheaper, even though there are some really cool colors I could have gotten.

As I already mentioned, my main concern was having a mixer that I could make endless biscotti with, and this was the primary reason that I bought the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer.  This mixer is a 325-watt mixer with 10 speeds so it has the power to withstand the tough biscotti dough.  In addition, it comes with a flat beater and a dough hook which can both be used for mixing the biscotti dough.  I also love the feature of the tilt back head because it makes it so much easier than my old stand mixer to access the bowl, put in ingredients, and split the dough to press into loaves for baking.

Amazingly enough, the KitchenAid Artisan mixer is pretty enough, even in black, to keep out on my kitchen counter, which means that I use it more, and it is easily accessible.  It is definitely built for tough jobs, but can also make whipped cream easily.  This makes the mixer extremely versatile and also hard to break which is a great feature in a household with two teenagers, one with a propensity to break things.

I used to get a sore arm even when mixing the biscotti dough with a hand held mixer because it was tough to keep the mixer in place when I wanted to get to all parts of the bowl.  The KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer not only has the power to hand a double batch of biscotti dough, but it does the work for me, getting to more points on the bowl without tiring my arm out.  It gives a nice even mix too.

I also don't have to worry about breaking the attachments because they are much more heavy duty than the small beaters I had with my other mixers.  There are other additional attachments that you can buy for this mixer from Amazon that do not come with the basic set including a citrus juicer, ice cream maker, food grinder, pasta press, grain mill, rotor slicer/shredder, and extra bowls.

One of the best things you get when you buy any KitchenAid mixers are the support and service of KitchenAid.  KitchenAid is a super company that really stands by its products, and their support department is top notch.  They really take the time to help you work through any problems, or instructions that you do not understand when you first get the mixer.  The most technical detail on this mixer is getting the beater bowl clearance set when you first get it.  But if you can't figure it out yourself, you can call them and they will walk you through the adjustment.  Once the beaters are set correctly, you get perfect mixing.

Another feature that I would like to mention about this mixer, is that it is very simple to attach and remove the various attachements, and to take apart the mixer elements for cleaning.  It is tough to be a neat cook or baker, and mixing cookie dough generally gets it all over the mixer, and the baker.  However, with the 5-quart bowl, that happens less, and the mixer itself cleans up nicely.

In addition to the great price you get for the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer on Amazon, KitchenAid is also offering rebates.  You can get the rebate paperwork when you go onto Amazon to buy the mixer.  A one year KitchenAid warranty comes with the mixer as well.

For more information about the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Mixer, its attachments, colors, and more reviews, you can go directly to the mixer page on Amazon.  This product is definitely a winner for anyone who loves to cook and bake.

Double Gas Ovens Can Be Built In or Freestanding

Although double gas ovens are fairly new to household use, they have been used in commercial settings for years. Double gas ovens can be freestanding units or built in units like regular gas ovens, and if you have a space issue in your kitchen, a built in double gas oven can be a wise choice.

Double gas ovens are available in stainless steel, white or black as standard colors for most companies, and may be ordered in custom colors. Many reputable companies make double gas ovens for the home, including Maytag, Jenn Air, Frigidaire, and GE. Double gas stoves come in varying sizes anywhere from 24 inch to 48 inch, so measure your kitchen space carefully as you consider the best fit.

Baking in a Double Gas Oven

You can purchase a regular double gas oven or a convection double gas oven, both great options for avid bakers. You can preheat one oven while the other is baking, or start your supper cooking, without disturbing your cake that is baking.

You can also do different stages of a recipe in each oven. For instance, bake your biscotti in loaf form in one oven, then have the second oven ready for the biscotti slices to bake at a different temperature. No waiting for the oven to change temperatures.

Cleaning a Double Gas Oven

Cleaning a double gas oven is no more difficult than cleaning a standard oven. Stove tops can be cleaned with the appropriate cleaner for that surface, and many of the ovens are self-cleaning.

In most double gas ovens, the racks on the top and bottom ovens are interchangeable, so you have more flexibility in shelf heights.

Oven Burners on Double Gas Ovens

The number of burners on the stovetop of a double gas oven will vary depending on size of the gas range top and the other features the stove may have like a grill, fry-top or other specialty cooktops. Many of the new double gas ovens have the Precision Cooking System meant to take a lot of the guesswork out of temperatures and cooking.

No matter which oven model or manufacturer you choose, check all of the features and compare carefully for warranties, service, and price.

What is an Ammeter?

What is an Ammeter?

Share Button

AmmeterAn ammeter is an instrument that measures the current in an electric circuit. The principle that governs the operation of the ammeter was discovered in 1820 by the Danish physicist Hans Christian Oersted, who found that a compass needle is deflected when it is placed near a current-carrying conductor. In 1882, Jacques Arsene d'Arsonval of France devised a moving-coil, permanent-magnet galvanometer similar to the ammeter now most commonly in use.

The moving-coil ammeter consists of a horseshoe-shaped permanent magnet, a moving coil, hairsprings, a pointer, and a scale. The movable coil of fine wire is suspended in a cylindrical air gap between the permanent-magnet poles.

This lightweight coil is pivoted on bearings so that only a small force is required to rotate it. The hairsprings, which are attached to the coil structure, establish the static, no-current position of the coil. The pointer, which is attached to the coil, moves over a calibrated scale to display the meter reading in units of amperes.

Direct current (d-c) passing through the coil produces a magnetic field that interacts with the permanent-magnet field. This interaction produces a torque that drives the coil against the hairsprings. The pointer stabilizes when the magnetic force is balanced by the spring force.

In most ammeters the pointer deflection is directly proportional to the coil current. For measuring alternating current (a-c), moving-coil ammeters have a rectifier that converts a-c to d-c. Many commercial ammeters are designed for both a-c and d-c measurements.

An ammeter can measure a wide range of currents because it has a device that allows only a portion of the current to pass through the coil. In d-c ammeters a shunt is used for this function; a-c ammeters use a current transformer.

Besides the moving-coil ammeter, there are moving-vane, electrodynamometer, and hot-wire types of ammeters. These types are used mainly for a-c measurements. Where a-c measurements must be made and it is not practical to open the circuit, clamp-on ammeters are used.

Technicians use ammeters to measure the current drain of household appliances to determine that the capacity of house lines is adequate and to troubleshoot household appliances.

Make Money While Decluttering Your Home

Make Money While Decluttering Your Home

Share Button

For most of us, there comes a time when it seems as if we've outgrown our homes because every closet is bursting at the seams and there is clutter in almost every room. Does this mean you're a bad housekeeper? Usually not, it just means that over the years you've accumulated more and more possessions that are taking up valuable space. This can be especially true when raising children, as they are constantly outgrowing both clothing and toys, which continuously have to be replaced with age- and size-appropriate items. Even with adult-only households, every year we add clothes to our wardrobes which we no longer wear, and acquire a lot of books and magazines. Over time, this can make your home cluttered to the point where you feel like you no longer have enough space. There are some simple and effective ways to reduce the clutter, while at the same time putting cash back in your pocket. Here we offer some ideas on organizing and decluttering the home to help you reclaim your space.

Donations

Donating is a logical choice for clearing out many items, especially clothing. Thrift stores such as Goodwill are happy to accept a variety of items and many towns have drop boxes located in parking lots of businesses that will take clothing and shoe donations. Even worn out rubber soled shoes are generally accepted, because the rubber can be recycled to make soft rubber, kid-safe playground surfaces. Consider church organizations and domestic violence shelters too, as they may have need for clothing in various sizes for both genders. While you won't make money by decluttering this way, you can claim donations as tax deductions. This is a great way to provide clothing to those in need and will also make extra room in your closets and dresser drawers.

Sell Your Used Clothing

Clothing that is no longer needed and just taking up space is a great way to earn some extra cash. By holding a garage sale, you can unload these items and make a few dollars in the process. You might also want to attempt selling your items through a consignment shop. If going this route, make sure to check with the store on their policies, as well as inquire what sizes and clothing brands they are willing to sell.

You can also sell unwanted clothing online. Using auction sites such as Ebay has proven to work well for many people, especially when selling brand name popular clothing items. Craigslist is also another popular online option for selling just about anything and everything. There are also several relatively new sites that allow users to sell clothing online from the comfort of your own home.

ThredUp accepts baby clothes, kids' clothes, women's clothing, shoes, and used purses. With this site, the user requests a "clean out bag" with a pre-paid shipping label that is sent to your home. Simply fill with your unwanted clothing items and send it back for review and payment. You also have the option of donating your earnings to charity.

Tradesy.com requires a bit more work on the part of the seller and offers payment in the form of Tradesy cash, or pay an extra fee to have the funds sent to a bank account or PayPal. This site deals with higher end merchandise such as designer brands.

Swap.com allows sellers to send in a box of items and accepts kids' clothing and a variety of other items. This site also offers a guarantee that if your items don't sell within 45 days, they will buy them from you.

Make Money from Your Old Books

If you're an avid reader, chances are you've accumulate quite a few books through the years. If you're looking to clean out your bookcases as part of your organizing and decluttering efforts, Bookscouter.com provides a great place to sell those used books and textbooks and make some cash. The site allows sellers to compare prices of 57 different book-buying websites so that you can determine where you'll get the best price for your books. Below you can see an example of a book that I looked up and some of the results from the listed sites.

Bookscouter

 

Bookscouter also has a sister site called Gadgetscouter. When you go to Bookscouter, you can see a link for Gadgetscouter in the sidebar. You can look your old gadgets up to see if anyone is buying them.

Garage Sales

Garage or rummage sales are not only a great way to sell old clothing, but everything else as well. Garage sales can be a great way to sell unused furniture, household goods, knick knacks, toys, games, appliances, computers, clothing, games, etc. If you are advertising larger ticket items, make sure to place an ad in the local paper that lists those. For example, list individual items such as "refrigerator, washing machine, clothing, and lots of miscellaneous." Using keywords will attract buyers searching for that particular item. Keep prices on common items reasonable so that they will sell and be willing to negotiate.

Craigslist and Newspaper Ads

If you have larger items to sell, such as a television or piano (just a couple of examples), and don't wish to hold a garage sale, advertise these items on Craigslist or place an ad in the local paper. Placing items under the proper category will attract interested buyers quickly and get the unwanted item out of the house as soon as possible. These items are generally anything too big to ship such as a couch. Make sure to get your payment in cash before the person takes the item.

Shredded paper

Recycle the Junk

Items such as old magazines, junk mail, and newspapers really pile up quickly. As part of your organizing efforts, every few weeks, go through all the junk mail, old bills, magazines, etc. and determine what you no longer need. Investing in a paper shredder is a great idea so that you can safely place these papers in the recycling bin. If your neighborhood does not have regular recycling pickup, check to see if there is a recycling facility where you can drop off these unwanted papers.

Participate in Recycling Programs

Items such as old tires and car batteries are not good to leave lying around and can really take up a lot of valuable space in the garage or shed. Many towns periodically hold an event where citizens can take and drop them off for proper recycling at no cost. Take advantage of these events to clear out a lot of clutter.

Hot Pink in the Kitchen

Hot Pink in the Kitchen

Choosing Hot Pink for Kitchen Decor

When it comes to choosing a color for painting or decorating a kitchen, why not consider hot pink in the kitchen? This bright and colorful shade of pink can really brighten up a space, adding color and style to a kitchen in a home, apartment, office, or college dorm. This lively berry tone can be used strictly for creating a fun and eclectic look, for example, for female roommates in a college dorm. Or, it can be used to create a sophisticated, warm and inviting space in an area where families love to gather. The way you choose to decorate the hot pink kitchen and the accessories chosen can make all the difference in the appearance of the finished room.

To achieve a fun, youthful feel, choose really bold shades of pink. For a less bold look, while still using the same basic hot pink color, choose shades of fuchsia or berry. Some great ideas include painting an accent wall in pink while leaving cabinets and the other walls white or off-white. Or, you might choose to paint all of the cabinet door fronts the fuchsia shade, leaving the walls white or off-white. For another creative painting idea, consider painting the ceiling of the kitchen pink. Just remember to keep some white or off-white showing as opposed to having everything pink. A large, bold pink area rug, or a few smaller pink rugs could be used on the kitchen floor to add color and keep with the theme of the kitchen.

How Pink to Go?

When it comes to adding hot pink to your kitchen you need to decide how far you want to take it. Do you want it to predominate or to provide surprising pops of color? Both work surprisingly well in a kitchen though I'm not sure my husband completely agrees. That said, hot pink is a real funky color that pleases more people than its paler more feminine pastel pinks.

Personally I like to use appliances and accents to surprise people. Here I've searched out suitable appliances that are functional and also attractive to look at. I've picked out well known brands that get good reviews. You can check those out by clicking on the links.

Add to that some nice table linens, towels and accessories and you have a completely new look in your kitchen.

Raspberry Ice is Another Name for Hot Pink

After decisions have been made regarding where to use the pink color on walls, cabinetry, and floors, it is time to focus on bringing the hot pink color into other areas of the kitchen. Some fun ideas might include hanging some framed wall art in shades of pink, as well as incorporating some small appliances in the pink shade to add a dramatic splash of color to your countertops. The popular brand Kitchen Aid offers a bright Raspberry Ice colored standing mixer that fits the bill perfectly.

Adding Hot Pink Accents

Other cute but functional items that can be displayed in the kitchen include fuchsia colored oven mitts, that can be hung from a knob on a cabinet door to add color and for easy access when needed. Consider hanging a bold, berry colored utensil rack on one of the white walls to display your cooking tools and make them easy to find at the same time. A cute apron with a darker pink or with hot pink accents would look great hanging from a hook in the kitchen.

For fun accents, try some fuchsia place mats. If none are readily available, cut your own from a roll of foam shelf liner in the proper color. Adding some dish towels here and there also give the kitchen a welcoming feeling. Place a bright pink dishtowel through the handle of the refrigerator, and wherever else one might add a little dash of color. For kitchens that have windows or a door with a window, consider hanging a light, airy curtain in a matching shade of pink. White stripes or white polka dots in the pattern create a fun look. If dining table chairs lack chair pads, this is another area in which you might use the pink color. If you cannot find pink chair pads to fit, consider buying ready made ones to fit your chairs and covering them yourself with an inexpensive fabric in your chosen color.

 Kitchen Towels Slotted Turner Mixing Spoon Silicone Mitts

Pink candles and candle holders may be used to decorate a kitchen table. A sturdy vase with pink flowers also makes a nice, decorative accent. If you have any other furniture pieces in the kitchen, especially ones that stand along a white wall, you could possibly paint them a berry color to coordinate along with the rest of your kitchen.

 Round Plastic Cover Paper Placemats Tablecloth Roll Table Skirt Linen Tablecloth

Don't Forget the Backsplash!

Hot Pink BacksplashAnother location within the kitchen that may go unnoticed when considering painting is the backsplash area underneath the cabinets and above the sink. This is a perfect accent area to apply color to, by either painting or applying ceramic tiles which are perfect for an area that gets splashed with water daily.

Using a bold pink color in a kitchen can really make a statement. When used properly, this color can bring warmth and whimsy to tiny college dorm kitchens, friendliness to a shared office kitchen, and can provide a colorful place to gather, eat, and socialize in the smallest of apartments or the grandest house on the block. Consider using hot pink in your next kitchen decorating project.
