Any home cook will tell you that getting their hands on a KitchenAid stand mixer (finally!) changed their life for the better. Out of the box, these heritage lifelong mixers can do so much to revolutionize prep work on a daily basis — especially for bakers, who can elevate their finished baked goods a lot easier thanks to KitchenAid's deft precision. But a KitchenAid can do so much more than just whip through wet and dry ingredients with ease thanks to its highly precise line of attachments.

Nearly all of attachments and accessories are designed to be used with any Kitchenaid. The gadgets that are specifically designed to fit into what's known as the attachment socket of your stand mixer (which is covered by the silver cap at the very top of your mixer's tilting head) can reportedly be used with any model dating all the way back to 1937. KitchenAid's most popular mixer models have been within the Artisan series recently, and all of the attachments on this list work well with any Artisan stand mixer. These attachments can help cooks prep savory recipes, whiz through fresh homemade pasta. grind and sift all kinds of ingredients, and even eliminate the need for a vegetable spiralizer that may hog space elsewhere.

Editors in the Good Housekeeping Institute's Test Kitchen highlight the following attachments as a way for you to turn an everyday mixer into an "all-around workhorse for cooking" in any kitchen. All of these items have been tested in our Kitchen Appliances Lab. We're sharing the best KitchenAid attachments based on their workability and versatility in the kitchen, their cost, and whether or not they're likely to make cooking complicated dishes that much easier at home.


Designed to Work With Any Attachment

Design Series Stand Mixer, 5-QT



All the attachments in this guide are designed to work with a stand mixer from KitchenAid. If you've been on the fence about purchasing one, learning more about these attachments might finally convince you to pick one up. A stand mixer can be a great asset for bakers, helping them whiz through cookies, cakes, and pies, as well as savory items like tarts, pasta dough, plus bread (duh!). Attachments can work to cut, slice, and reinvent vegetables and proteins, too — you'll be able to use your stand mixer for meals more often. Plus, all of the attachments below enjoy KitchenAid's generous warranty policy for up to 1 year (the mixer is covered for 5 years as well!). 

This 5-quart model is our top pick for the best stand mixer overall, but if you still have questions about which KitchenAid mixer to buy, check out our full shopping guide right here.

2KitchenAid Pasta Roller and Cutter Set



This may be the most powerful attachment for home cooks, as it revolutionizes the pasta making process for anyone (even pros!). A sheet cutter makes making fresh spaghetti, fettuccini, and linguine-style noodles child's play. There are two different rollers to make processing pasta dough so much easier; simply put the dough together in the bowl, and then feed it into the low-speed setting on the roller, which will knead it. The automatic speed allows you to use two hands to keep long pieces feeding into the machine, and it's quite sturdy.

  • Use the roller for other kinds of doughs, including cookies

3Food Grinder Attachment



If you're a burger lover or love to barbecue, this attachment is for you — it can handle all proteins, as its metal encasing stands up to the task. You can power through pounds of beef, pork, poultry, or even fish; you can also choose to create blends yourself. You'll get a removal tray with the attachment to set your meat into, plus a plastic sausage stuffer tube, a meat pusher for trickier grinds, and a cleaning brush. And if you haven't made sausage from scratch before, this attachment makes the whole process less intimidating.  A plastic model is available at a lower price point, as well.

  • Good for creating custom meat blends you can't find in store
  • Allows you to buy meat in bulk and save money compared to convenience packages.

4Fresh Prep Slicer & Shredder Attachment



Unless you're a professional chef, shredding lettuce with your knife (or cheese with a grater!) feels near impossible. This shredding and slicing attachment makes it easy to enjoy freshly shredded produce and dairy. You'll swap between two different blades for uniformly sliced items — cucumbers, onions, or tomatoes, as examples — as well as shredded ingredients.

  • Uniform sliced ingredients for beautifully plated salads and more
  • Shreds cheeses in just a few seconds
  • Redundant if you already have a food processor
  • Is not designed for proteins, which require another attachment

5Spiralizer Attachment


$114.00 (24% off)


Probably one of the most exciting offerings for veggie lovers and low-carb dieters combined, the spiralizer attachment replaces the need for a standalone gadget. It has blades that quickly spiralizes and peels(!) a variety of produce, including squash, zucchini, potatoes, and carrots, too. You can customize the noodles' thickness: Enjoy tight spirals or shavings, or create thicker, luxe ribbons. If you like to eat clean, healthy meals that are packed with fresh vegetables and fruit, this attachment will certainly come in handy.

  • Perfect precision on creating uniform vegetable noodles
  • Versatile enough to handle fruits, including apples
  • Creates a larger core compared to standalone appliances

65 Quart Tilt-Head Gold Metallic Finish Stainless Steel Bowl



Yes, it's technically not an attachment — but these accessories are SO necessary for KitchenAid mixer fanatics! Sometimes, you need to mix wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls, or may want to keep raw ingredients away from sullying other recipe elements. This year, KitchenAid has released 3 brand new designs for your stand mixer: A metallic finish stainless steel bowl (in multiple colors!), a clay ceramic bowl, and the sage leaf ceramic bowl. Some of these bowls are microwave and oven safe up to 475°F, whereas all are safe for the dishwasher. 

  • Dishwasher-safe stainless steel finish
  • Metallic finish makes this particular bowl unfit for a microwave or oven

75-Qt. Scraper Bowl Attachment




Each mixer comes with two standardized attachments, including a whisk and a dough hook. Having more than one whisk is a good idea for those who take on multiple projects at once, as it whips egg whites and makes mixtures airy. But KitchenAid also offers a suped-up version of their mixing paddle (also included), which is equipped with a silicone attachment designed to ensure every bit of your dry or wet ingredients is incorporated smoothly. 

8Food Processor Attachment With Commercial Style Dicing Kit



This all-in one attachment comes equipped with many functionalities you'll find highlighted in other attachments. You can julienne, shred, and slice fresh ingredients, and you can also adjust the thickness of the cut before you begin. Because it's designed to replace a food processor on your countertop, it can handle proteins, too. Our tests had no issues with any kind of vegetables, but choosing to work with softer proteins (or those that have been paired down in size) yielded best results.

  • Can handle all kinds of ingredients while being easily washable
  • Bulky on its own; may also be unnecessary if you own a food processor already
  • The feed tube is small and limits what you can process based on ingredient size

9Gourmet Pasta Press Attachment




If you're more of a fan of shorter noodles or speciality pasta shapes, this attachment may be better for your needs. You can make a few shapes of pasta: spaghetti, bucatini, rigatoni, macaroni, and fussili. You'll force the dough through the chosen shape and cut the length at your choice.  

  • Manual control over the noodle length
  • Not as forgiving with dry or overly wet pasta dough

10Mixer Ravioli Attachment




If you're a bonafide pasta fanatic, this attachment may be for you. While cutting ravioli by hand (with specialized tools) can be quite tricky, this attachment does its best to standardize the process by stuffing and shaping at the same time. You can cook the ravioli right away after passing them through this attachment, or you can freeze to cook later. Tip: Freeze the freshly made pasta in a single layer, and then transfer into a larger freezer bag for up to a month.

  • Streamlines ravioli process for faster results
  • Very limited use, not as versatile as pasta attachment

11Vegetable Sheet Cutter Attachment




A game changer for vegans and vegetarians alike, this sheet cutter solely creates luxe lasagna-like ribbons from all kinds of fruits and vegetables. You'd be able to easily execute dishes like this gorgeous carrot and radish salad, or any better-for-you pasta dish that calls for vegetable noodles. You can create thicker ribbons with one blade (a low-carb bread sub, perhaps?) and thinner, delicate sheets with another.  

  • Flawless execution of complicated knifework
  • Very specialized tool for limited use
  • May be unnecessary for those interested in the spiralizer attachment

12Juicer Attachment



Juicing is a messy business, but if you've been wanting to drink freshly minted green juice in the morning, this can certainly do the trick. While it's billed as a solution to create sauces and jams, our tests found that it's best to keep the tasks assigned to this attachment as simple as possible. The pulp screens included with the gadget make sure your fruit or vegetable juice is just the way you want it. 

  • Can easily power through a juice recipe
  • Hard to clean and maintain

13Ice Cream Maker Attachment



This attachment replaces your standard mixing bowl, and makes use of your mixer's rotating paddle. Nearly any of our favorite DIY ice cream recipes are a breeze with this attachment. You'll only need a few minutes to effectively whip your ingredients into shape; and while the manufacturer's instructions say you can freeze the bowl before use, you may also store the ice cream in the freezer for a make-ahead treat. 

  • Custom control over how fast it churns, giving you final say over how airy your ice cream really is
  • This attachment is quite bulky, and hogs space in small kitchens
  • Making a second batch requires re-freezing the bowl

14Sifter & Scale Attachment




Any baker will tell you how annoying it is to meticulously sift and measure each dry ingredient before you even preheat the oven. It perfectly incorporates and sifts all of your dry ingredients, and is embedded with a scale that takes the guesswork out of baking when precision is key. It directly places the sifted ingredients into your mixing bowl, and makes for a great gift for bakers who are always game to try new recipes. 

  • Scale is digital and can be detached from the mixer to weigh all kinds of ingredients

KitchenAid Juicer Attachment, grey

Before getting a KitchenAid Juicer and Sauce Attachment, you need to have either a bowl-lift stand mixer or a tilt-head model. It’s compatible with any of the KitchenAid mixers with a working power hub.

What I love about the brand is the assortment of accessories available for their range of stand mixers. Some of my most favorite attachments are the pasta roller and cutter set, meat grinder, grain mill, spiralizer, and the slicer/shredder set.

One unique feature the KitchenAid Juicer has is the filter basket. You don’t just get a pair of them. You have three pulp filter baskets at your disposal. There’s a standard pulp filter for a pulp-free juice. You also have a high-pulp filter with bigger holes. And there’s also a specialty filter for making sauces.

The first thing I noticed about this product is the auger. It’s like a food processor-juice extractor combo. I haven’t seen anything like it, which is not necessarily a good thing. It makes juicing more complicated and made me question its juice extraction efficiency.

I won’t make this introduction any longer. I’ll discuss every single detail about the KitchenAid Juicer Attachment in the succeeding sections.

For now, let’s take a look at its pros and cons.


  • An excellent option for those who own a KitchenAid mixer
  • 3 pulp screen sizes
  • Dishwasher safe parts
  • 72 hours juice life


  • It’s a bit pricey for an accessory
  • Not ideal if you don’t have a KitchenAid Mixer
  • Higher RPM than traditional slow juicers
  • Short product warranty


Is the KitchenAid Juicer easy to use?

The KitchenAid Juicer Attachment is not your average slow juice extractor. Sad to say, it’s not that easy to operate. The challenge lies in how the machine is built to work with the stand mixer.

First of all, it’s suspended from your countertop. It doesn’t look like a heavy-duty machine that can withstand too much pressure.

The second issue that’s going to give you a hard time is the auger design. It’s the only slow juicer with a blade assembly. I believe it has something to do with the higher revolutions per minute (RPM).

They need to ensure that fruits and veggies are small enough when it gets through the juicing chamber. Otherwise, large chunks of produce, especially those fibrous ones, will compromise the integrity of the juicer.

In short, it’s not as straightforward as conventional slow juice extractors.

Is it easy to clean?

This part is probably the redeeming quality of the KitchenAid Mixer Juicer Attachment. All the components except for the drive assembly can go on the top rack of your dishwasher.

However, you still have to brush off the fibers from the pulp filter manually. Another component that you need to pay attention to is the auger-blade assembly. It’s sharp, so please be careful when cleaning it up.

Pro Tip:

Wash your juicer right away to prevent juice residue from hardening. It’s going to save you a ton of headache.

To see what I mean, here’s a quick video demo of the KitchenAid KSM1JA.

KitchenAid Juicer and Sauce Attachment is a juicing accessory for any of the brand’s stand mixers. It can fit both bowl-lift stand mixers and classic tilt-head variants. It’s ideal for making basic juice recipes and as well as creamy sauces. The KitchenAid Juicer comes with a full-year product guarantee.

Juice Quality

The KitchenAid Slow Juicer Attachment spins slightly faster than most of the cold press juicers that I have reviewed. The ideal speed for a slow juicer to be efficient at extracting juice from leafy greens is 50 RPMs or lower.

KitchenAid Mixer Juicer spins at approximately 200 RPM making it less ideal for making green juices. It’s not as fast as a centrifugal juicer, but having that kind of speed negatively affects juice extraction efficiency.

Overall, it’s still better than a centrifugal juicer, but it’s not as great as most of the leading slow juicers.

What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice?

The KitchenAid Slow Juicer is best for dense produce and citruses. It can also process leafy greens, but the thing with high-RPM slow juicers is it’s going yield less volume.

Denser produce includes sweet potato, cucumber, cilantro, garlic, ginger, fennel, pear, pumpkin, cauliflower, pineapple, apple, carrots, asparagus, watermelon, bitter gourd, pepper, yakon, turmeric, broccoli, celery, and beets.

You probably have to cut these items into approximately 2-inch sections to fit the feeding chute.

It can also work very well on citruses like grapefruit, oranges, tangerine, limes, lemons, etc., without the rinds and seeds. If you prefer some fibers into your citrus juice, this is where the high-pulp screen will come in handy.

As I’ve mentioned, the Kitchenaid Juice Extractor has a little bit of an issue processing leafy greens like lettuce, peppermint, beet greens, brussels sprout, collard greens, basil, spinach, kale, dandelion greens, cabbage, and parsley, etc.

Making a green juice is doable, but you just need to keep in mind that it will not give you the same volume as other leading slow juicers.

On the bright side, you can also make sauces with this juicer attachment using the saucing screen.

All in all, it’s still quite impressive knowing that it’s just a mixer accessory.

Is KitchenAid Juicer Attachment worth it?

As much as I love KitchenAid mixers, I can’t really give my seal of approval for the KitchenAid Slow Juicer and Sauce Attachment. Hopefully, they’ll consider releasing a standalone model that won’t be limited by the constraints of the mixer.

Until then, here are some of my highly recommended cold press juicers.
