No More Mixer Spills!

Alright, so this might seem a little silly to some….but this was a BIG deal to me today – so I have to share it!!

I have this wonderful old Kitchen Aid mixer my grandma gave me several years ago (her old mixer).  I have no idea how old this baby is, but I love it!  It is still working like a champ!  I get so much great use out of it, and I will use it as long as it keeps tickin’!  The problem I have with it, however, is that it quite frequently splashes/sprays food everywhere when I use it!  This, I do not like.  It’s not fun trying to clean batter from all over your counters/walls/stove/cabinets/floors…you get the picture.  That part of using the mixer drives me nuts!  Since it is an old model kitchen aid, it doesn’t have the splash guard to go with it.  That would be nice.  Anywho, I was using my mixer today and before I turned it on {fearing the horrible mess I was about to make}, noticed a piece of saran wrap laying on the counter….this wonderful ideal instantly popped into my head….

So simple – yet I can not quite express the extent of joy this brings to me!

It’s the little things, folks!

So, my friends, if you find yourself in this same splash-guard-less-mixer-predicament, grab some saran and wrap that baby up!  Turn the mixer on, and presto – delicious goodness without the huge mess!  LOVE it!


  1. I quit making butter because of the splatter…and then ,when it ‘cracks’…it flings buttermilk everywhere. I started using towels…but, that didn’t work…I see the genius in your thought process and LOVE IT!
