Ten Geeked Up KitchenAid Mixers

A kitchen geek is lost without her KitchenAid. Sometimes I wish I had two or three of them, but I settle for having two bowls and multiple attachments for everything from casing sausage to extruding pasta. What I don’t have is an awesome design on it. I should work on that. Meanwhile, I’ll gaze at these:

If I could have made my Mass Effect costume out of batter instead of foam, this would have come in handy:

You can always go hand-painted if you’re a committed DIY geek, but the easiest route is vinyl decals, and Etsy is a treasure trove of them. Click the names in the captions to go to their stores.

I think if you put these TARDIS decals on your mixer, you’re obligated to make Ood rolls with it.

Or there’s the Batman option:

For cupcake pirates, wandering the seven kitchens looking for tiny dessert booty:

And finally, though not strictly geeky in the way the rest of these are, I couldn’t resist adding this:

Ruth Suehle

By day, Ruth Suehle helps upstream open source software communities and tells people how to build fun things with a Raspberry Pi. By night, she fights crimes against craftiness. No, that's not true. She just makes things, which means her husband and kids know to watch out for stray pins and to ask before eating anything made of fondant. (Follow her on Twitter at @suehle.)

    LOVE!!! Makes me wish I had a KitchenAir mixer. I already broke my mom’s a while back (got a spatula stuck in the beaters while it was running) so I’m not sure I should invest the money!
