Home and Garden August 4, 2022
As I write it is the hottest day of the year so far, it’s 31 degrees and everyone in the household is hot and bothered so we were delighted to receive the KitchenAid Shave Ice Attachment 5KSMSIA, I am ready to make a bathtub sized Daiquiri and jump right in. This accessory comes with the shave ice attachment, two blades: fine for snow and coarse for hand-shaved and four ice moulds with lids. The last thing you want when it’s hot is faffing about with awkward contraptions, luckily the Shave Ice is very easy to use. It is compatible with all the KitchenAid stand mixers and simply slots into the multipurpose attachment hub, then just pick your blade for coarse or fine shavings, pop the ice in the top and pull the lever, 60 seconds later you have your fluffy shaved ice.
Where you go from here is up to you, transform the hard crunchie ice into soft, fluffy ice with different syrups, sauces, fruit, ice cream or mochi. Mix things up by freezing juice, coffee, fruit teas, or milk, instead of water or create Italian granita, Puerto Rican piraguas or Japanese kakigori, not forgetting all the cocktails you can make, the opportunities are endless. When you are finished it is easy to clean, the moulds, lids and blades are all dishwasher-safe and the attachment housing just needs a quick dip in some warm soapy water. The four ice moulds can be used to ensure you always have pre-made ice, then it’s just a case of taking the mould out of the freezer, letting it sit and temper for 10 mins, then it’s ready to shave. If you have a KitchenAid it is well worth getting this attachment for the summer, your friends and family will appreciate it too. RRP £129
