For as many years as I can remember I coveted a shiny, KitchenAid mixer for my worktop.

The problem was the cost. I didn’t know if I’d use it enough, what I’d use it for or even if I wanted to use one. I just knew I wanted one – badly.

Finally, earlier this year, my wish came true and now a beautiful red, Artisan mixer sits on the side.

I have used it and used it and LOVE it but I’m now hankering after this:

A thing of beauty ....

KichenAid have only gone and produced a thick, glass bowl that fits on its mixers and looks pretty darn good as well. At around ¬£60, they’re pricey.

But how can anyone not want one?

My problem is that with a fully-working metal mixing bowl, I simply have no excuse or justification to buy one of these.

Maybe we’ll have to work on that!

Note: A little birdy over at KitchenAid tells me that you will get a FREE glass mixing bowl with every new KitchenAid Stand Mixer colour palette which will be released in April this year. Wow. Just wish I could get a new machine now!
