KitchenAid has introduced its new Precise Heat Mixing Bowl that is designed to mix, knead, whip, and stir even the most temperature-sensitive ingredients. It is the first KitchenAid product created as both a stand-alone countertop appliance and a Stand Mixer accessory. “The precise temperature technology in our new mixing bowl provides exact temperature selection for heating delicate ingredients, including tempering chocolate, melting cheese, and proofing and kneading bread dough,” notes Beth Robinson, senior brand experience manager for KitchenAid. “And when used together with the Stand Mixer, there’s so much more that it can do.” After selecting a temperature ranging from 70 - 220 degrees Fahrenheit based on two degree increments, the bowl will maintain the selected temperature for up to 10 hours. In addition to maintaining precise temperatures, the mixing bowl comes with a flex edge beater, wire whip and dough hook to keep dishes consistently mixed and evenly cooked under low heat. The new mixing bowls are available in two sizes - one that will fit all tilt-head model Stand Mixers, and one that will fit select 5 and 6 quart bowl-lift model Stand Mixers, and the 7 quart Pro Line® Series Stand Mixer. Suggested retail price is $329.99. Based on a 2014 survey, KitchenAid was found to be the home kitchen appliance brand chosen most often by members of the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
