How to Clean a Stand Mixer
Around the holidays my kitchen goes from residential to commercial. Almost daily I’m cranking out pies, cakes, cookies, candies, and more. All of these delights end up in the hands of friends, neighbors, and co-workers, or as part of a holiday spread.I love making things for others, but the last thing I want to do is get someone sick because I didn’t clean something thoroughly enough. That’s why I like to give my pots, pans, and Kitchen Aid stand mixer a deep-cleaning before the holidays hit. Today I’m sharing with you my secret to cleaning your stand mixer.
Are you ready for my secret?
Okay, lock your doors, close the curtains, and be sure no one is reading over your shoulder. Here it goes:
Dawn. That’s it folks, Dawn. It has all of the grease and gunk-fighting power you need to tackle your stand mixer.
All I used to clean my stand mixer was a bowl, warm water, Dawn, a kitchen sponge, and a couple of Q-tips. Here’s what you do:
- Apply a squirt of Dawn to a sponge/dish cloth under warm running water. (I let the extra suds collect in my bowl.)
- Scrub the greasy surface, and watch Dawn put grease and gunk in its place.
- Dry the surface with a paper towel and that’s it.
- Use the Q-tips to get into little crevices of the stand mixer.
And that’s it. In no time you’ll have a sparkling, clean stand mixer. Here are some before and after shots:
I had some caked-on grease on the side of my stand mixer, nothing Dawn and a little elbow grease couldn’t solve!
I don’t know about you, but I always forget to wipe down the under part of my stand mixer. As you can see, it desperately needed a good cleaning.
Don’t forget about the bowl cradle, grease and gunk love to collect down here.
That’s it, folks. That’s How to Clean a Stand Mixer!
