I think I need this!!!

The other day I was in my local Baking Supply Store and saw the most amazing thing. Have you ever seen a product that totally makes you want to scream and jump in the store with no fear of people stopping and staring at the strange person making a complete fool of themselves. Well when I saw this product that was my exact reaction. Its called the “Side Swipe Spatula Mixer Blade”.

Basically what it does, while mixing it also scraps the bowl at the same time…simple but genius. I wanted to order it ASAP, but my bakery store advised me they sold quicker than they could stock the shelves.

Well thanks to the Internet Gods (and Goddess) I found the website that would allow me to order mine. I can’t wait to test this baby out, because there is nothing worse than that flour that just doesn’t get mixed in.
The website can be found here

You must let me know how you like it! I might get one...it would definitely be used in my kitchen too.

Erica, this is PURE GENIUS!! One of my BIGGEST baking pet peeves (and OCD problems) is scraping down the sides of the bowl. I am anal-retentive when it comes to that! Are you seriously telling me I can purchase a handy-dandy paddle attachment that will not only mix my batters to perfection but will SCRAPE DOWN MY SIDES TOO?? I'm in heaven.

Many years ago my husband and his cousin (who is an engineer) were encouraged by me to create something like this. Did they do it? No! It kills me! I'm glad someone did though and am hoping to get one as well. Let me know how you like yours. Cooks Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) recently did a product review of the two types of Kitchen Aid scraper paddles. They preferred one over the other, but I can't remember which.
