KitchenAid’s New Stand Mixer Attachment Is Perfect for Summer

A person disassembles a shaved ice maker, frozen drinks sit by a mixer, and a person gets shaved ice from a dispenser.

Just when you thought you had all of the stand mixer attachments you could manage another makes its debut. This time, it’s the perfect accessory for summer.

KitchenAid is launching a shaved ice attachment for its famous stand mixer, and it’s time to make some icy summer beverages.

The attachment, which is available now at Williams Sonoma, includes four special ice molds you’ll need to create your shaved ice concoction. You’ll freeze whatever liquid you’d like—be it plain old water, coffee, or even lemonade—in the mold. Then, insert it into the shaved ice maker, place your glass or bowl under the attachment, turn on the machine, and you’ll have perfect shaved ice.

The machine can make up to a pint of ice in just 60 seconds, so if you freeze all four molds at the same time, you’ll have enough to make a batch of drinks for guests. Simply attach it to the power hub at the front of the mixer and go for it.

While the attachment is available for purchase now, you won’t receive the shaved ice maker until mid-April, but that still leaves plenty of spring and summer left for treats.

If you plan to indulge in some margaritas this summer, KitchenAid’s new attachment might just take things up a knotch.
