If you think a KitchenAid stand mixer only does what its name suggests, think again. This kitchen appliance is so versatile, you can make pasta, zoodles, sausage, and even a variety of juices with all of its amazing attachment pieces.


Imagine the motor humming as you weigh and sift flour; then the rolling sound as you feed fresh pasta dough through the attachment; then your veggies chopping in the food processing attachment or whipping through the spiralizer to accompany your fresh pasta. It's a quick and convenient way to maximize the potential of your machine (and enjoy some delicious meals — the kind that could impress company — as you try your hand at these techniques).

So whether you have a tilt-head model or a bowl-lift mixer, these are all of the stand mixer attachments you're going to need to really take your cooking and baking experience to the next level.

Vegetable sheet cutter

Made from metal for a piece that will last, KitchenAid's vegetable sheet cutter is designed to create sheets of fruits or vegetables for healthy substitutes in any meal (like low-carb lasagna). Two blades give you a choice–either thick or thinner sheets depending on your needs. Great for noodles made from zucchini, eggplant, squash, and other veggies.


The attachment is available from Crate & Barrel for $74.97 at the time of writing.

Spiralizer with peel, core, and slice functions

From peeling apples to making zoodles, the spiralizer attachment comes with four quick-change blades and an optional peeling blade. You can choose how thick or thin you would like your ribbons to be and use the corresponding metal attachment. It is designed to fit all KitchenAid stand mixers. Beyond zucchini, you can use this for cucumber noodles, or to create beautifully sliced fruit.


This handy attachment is $99.99 at Kohl's at the time of writing.

Sifter and scale

An automatic flour sifter that comes equipped with a battery-operated, easy-to-use digital scale, the Sifter & Scale is designed to make baking easier and baked goods fluffier, as compared to baked items with unsifted flour. Since the milling or sifting process may introduce air that makes cup measurements less accurate, you can use the scale to make sure your recipe is exactly right. The scale can also be used without the KitchenAid stand mixer.


As of fall 2023, this versatile attachment is $129.95 at Williams-Sonoma.

Pasta attachments

Make your dream of homemade pasta a reality with KitchenAid's pasta attachments, which come on their own or in a variety of packages, including a 2-piece, 3-piece, or a 5-piece deluxe set. These sets are made from commercial-style stainless steel rollers and cutters and roll 6-inch sheets of pasta with eight different thickness settings. Available pasta attachments include a pasta roller, fettuccine cutter, spaghetti cutter, lasagnette cutter, capellini cutter, and a cleaning brush. You can also purchase the pasta roller on its own.


The pasta attachment options range from $89.99 at Amazon for the roller on its own to $229.95 at Amazon for the deluxe set, as of fall 2023.

Fresh prep slicer/shredder

Get ready to shred with the Fresh Prep slicer/shredder attachment. Good for use with any size bowl, you can slice and shred as many fruits and vegetables as your recipe calls for–or as many as you want. The Fresh Prep comes with 3mm, 4mm, and 6mm blades so that you can adjust your slicing sizes as you wish.


This attachment is available for $59.99 at Target as of fall 2023.

Food processor with commercial dicing kit

From cubes thick and thin to strips fine or coarse and long or short, the food processor with a commercial dicing kit has your answer for whatever your recipe calls for, whether that's sliced or diced fruit, vegetables, or cheese. The attachment is equipped with the brand's ExactSlice, an external adjustable slicing lever and fits all KitchenAid Stand Mixers, the company said.


As of fall 2023, the food processor attachment was available for $193.99 from Best Buy.

All metal grain mill

From coarse to fine grains, the KitchenAid all-metal grain mill is able to grind low-moisture, low-oil grains, including wheat, oats, corn, and rice. Settings range from cracked to extra fine, getting the perfect consistency for whatever you're making, from bread to fresh pasta. It works with all KitchenAid stand mixers and also comes with a cleaning brush.


At the time of writing, the mill attachment is available from Crate & Barrel for $149.99.

Ice cream maker

Making a delicious dessert for company (or to keep all to yourself)? The KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment allows you to make up to two quarts of ice cream in about 20 minutes. That's pretty quick. Don't love ice cream? You can make gelato or sorbet with the attachment as well. It fits all stand mixers larger than 4.5-quart.


As of fall 2023, the ice cream maker attachment is $99.95 from Walmart.

Metal food grinder

With the ability to be pre-chilled in the refrigerator (which gives it a leg up on plastic), the metal food grinder comes with fine, medium, and coarse grinding plates and two sausage stuffer tubes. This allows you to create your own burgers, sausages, and meat mixtures for meatloaf. This attachment piece can be used to make bread crumbs for your meal, too.


As of fall 2023, the grinder attachment is $99.95 on Amazon.

Which KitchenAid would you pick?

If you don't yet have something to attach these to, see which KitchenAid mixer is best for you. What cooking plans do you have for your KitchenAid? If you're baking bread, or want a bowl you'd display rather than the usual stainless steel, you might take a look at ceramic KitchenAid bowls. If you need an easy way to juice a lot of citrus fruits, there's an attachment for that, too. And consider which other kitchen gadgets are worth the splurge, according to Tasting Table.
