Save Time in the Kitchen with the BeaterBlade from NewMetro Design {Review & Giveaway}

NewMetro Design logo
While my dream of being a professional foodie, one who can walk into the kitchen and whip up something incredible and delicious with ease, will most likely forever stay a dream, that doesn't mean that I don't still look for ways in which to make my cooking and baking more efficient (and tasty).

Whether that means trying out a new recipe or the latest set of pots and pans, if it results in less time spent cooking and cleaning and more time spent enjoying a yummy meal with my family, I'm all for it.

Therefore, when I was introduced to the BeaterBlade, the electric mixer attachment that continuously scrapes the bowl during mixing, I knew that NewMetro Design had come up with something that would benefit all of us.

Beater Blade

Celebrating its 5th anniversary this year, BeaterBlade is arguably the most impressive addition to the electric mixer that bakers everywhere can enjoy. By replacing the standard flat beater that comes with electric mixers, BeaterBlade is able to scrape and pull ingredients into the center of the bowl without having to stop the motor and scrape by hand.

Considering that I love my KitchenAid mixer but that I've always felt that it was somewhat of a hassle to have to continually stop it and reach in with my spatula, I was ready to put the BeaterBlade to the test and see if it could really live up to all of the positive reviews that I found on sites such as Amazon, Bed, Bath & Beyond and more.

BeaterBlade

NewMetro Design makes it easy to figure out which of their BeaterBlade models will work with your mixer (they have different versions depending on the size — 4.5 to 7quart — whether the head tilts or the bowl lifts, etc), and have designed them to fit KitchenAid, Cuisinart, Viking and Kenwood brands. There are also a few different colors so that your accessories can match your appliances and kitchen decor!

As I pulled my BeaterBlade out of the package, I immediately began to compare it to my mixer's beater to look for similarities and differences.

With the main difference being that the KitchenAid beater is metal and the BeaterBlade is plastic, the two are otherwise quite similar in shape, size and design.

But then there are the the blades! Dubbed "wings" by BeaterBlade, the two strong, durable, flexible wings on each side are made of food-grade rubber and provide the same results as your car's windshield wipers. Simply use your mixer like normal and the BeaterBlade efficiently and quickly scrapes the sides and bottom of the bowl as you continue to add ingredients.

Talk about convenient! The BeaterBlade popped on as quickly and easily as my usual beater and I had no problem following NewMetro Design's clear instructions as to how to raise the head of my mixer up just a slight bit for a perfect fit into the bowl.

After that, things were a piece of cake! I love being able to leave the mixer running (slowly, of course) while adding ingredients to a recipe and not having to stop every few minutes to scrape down the sides.

While I've never timed my cookie batter mixing in the past, it had definitely decreased the first time that I tried it with the BeaterBlade!

BeaterBlade review

I couldn't be much happier with having switched to using the BeaterBlade, as it has cut down on the mixing time of everything from cakes to cookies to frostings to breads and more.

While my young kitchen helpers were initially concerned that they would no longer have anything to lick when the mixing was completed, those worries were dashed when they realized that the BeaterBlade itself replaced the spatula perfectly.

Beater Blade review
It's always a sign of successful baking when you end up with flour on your forehead.
As the perfect finishing touch, the BeaterBlade is dishwasher safe (top rack), so cleanup is even easier than before. What more could I ask for?

Shorter mix time, great results and easier cleaning means that I am definitely reaching for my BeaterBlade for ALL of my mixing in the future! After only one use I could see why this attachment has wowed professional and amateur cooks with its incomparable performance. I just can't think of any reason that I would choose my standard flat beater over this innovative upgrade!

BeaterBlade spatula

With a suggested retail price between $24.99 and $29.99, depending on the model (as low as $18.94 on Amazon!), the BeaterBlade can be found in stores and online today.

Whether you spend a great deal of time in the kitchen or just appreciate efficiency when you find it, the BeaterBlade can make quick work of your mixing... which just means less time until eating, right?

Visit NewMetro Design to find out more about the BeaterBlade and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter as well. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be able to quickly mix and bake as well, because...

One lucky person will win a BeaterBlade for their electric mixer*!

*Winner will be able to select the correct model BeaterBlade for their size and style mixer.

Nothing beats good old fashioned Toll House choco chip cookies! And NO other mixer out there sold for your household use, can handle a double batch of cookie dough like KitchenAid can.
