The 5-part video series features step-by-step instructions for putting your favorite KitchenAid appliances to work to create mealtime mainstays, including:

Homemade Pasta

Homemade pasta is a breeze with the KitchenAid® Pasta Roller & Cutter Set, which attaches conveniently to any size Stand Mixer. With the fresh pasta in motion, you can turn to the KitchenAid® 5-Speed Diamond Blender for all of your pasta sauce needs, including fresh basil pesto. Then it’s time to tackle all those store-bought snacks with the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series 16-Cup Food Processor, which whips up homemade peanut butter and slices homemade potato chips in minutes. And last but not least, preheat the KitchenAid® Double Wall Oven for chewy chocolate chip granola bars.
