Ice Cream Maker by KitchenAid

Remember when I got my KitchenAid stand mixer in early December, long before the Christmas sales? Well, on top of the voucher my husband got, I managed to get an extra 10% off the original retail price by signing-up for the store loyalty card. Eager to try out the machine, within just weeks after buying the mixer, I made lots of buns and all sorts of bread non-stop. After a while, I began to think there was a problem with my KitchenAid mixer.

I was starting to get awfully worried as my mixer was making lots of funny clicking noises. The mixer's head also kept on moving weirdly. I Googled and asked a few people including TTM (who has one herself) regarding the problem. Thankfully, it's quite normal and maybe because of all the heavy duty jobs that I've been working on the mixer. But, just to completely satisfy myself, (after all my husband did spend quite a large amount of money on the thing) I went back to the store after Christmas, dragging all 15 kilos of pink cast iron with me.

While waiting for the KA representative, something caught my attention. A KA sign at the store read: Buy a Mixer and get an Ice Cream Maker for FREE (worth €100) + 10% off the retail price. The deal applied to everyone and was not just exclusive to members of the store (hardcore shoppers that lot).

What?

I was devastated. Not that I wanted the ice cream maker so much but it was free. Who wouldn't want that especially since it originally costs €100. If only my husband and I had waited a couple of weeks to buy the mixer. My husband did try to console me with the fact that had we waited, I could have easily missed out on the opportunity to get the mixer in the colour I want - pink, naturally.

Not one to be daunted by silly department store "rules", after talking about my problem with the KA rep (which turned to be OK, as expected), I tried my luck and mentioned that I had just bought my mixer a few weeks earlier and should have waited (with a very disappointed face...awww), blaaa...blaaa...blaaa... To my surprise the lady simply said,

Emmm...don't worry. To make it worth your trip to the store today, I'll sort you with something...

And, as soon as she finished her sentence, she had a KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker packed away for me...for FREE. Yay!!! Well, she definitely just made my day.


Now, to be honest,  I just managed to open the box and use the ice cream maker this week. Bear in mind though, I needed a very big, spacious and empty space in the freezer plus some long hours for the process to even start (I'll let you know all the details in my next post). But for now, I'll just share with you the pictures of  what I made this week.
