CHICAGO, March 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- KitchenAid has introduced a new Precise Heat Mixing Bowl that can be used as a traditional stand-alone slow cooker or with the brand's iconic Stand Mixer to mix, knead, whip, stir and remove the guesswork from heating even the trickiest temperature-sensitive ingredients. It is the first product from KitchenAid to serve double duty as both a stand-alone countertop appliance and Stand Mixer accessory.
"The precise temperature technology in our new mixing bowl provides exact temperature selection for heating delicate ingredients, including melting cheese, tempering dark, milk and white chocolates and even proofing and kneading bread dough," notes Beth Robinson, senior brand experience manager for KitchenAid. "And when used together with the Stand Mixer, there's so much more that it can do."
Simply select a temperature ranging from 70 - 220 degrees Fahrenheit based on two degree increments, and the bowl will maintain the selected temperature for up to 10 hours. A digital display shows the temperature and provides a timer for up to 10 hours. The glass lid gives cooks a clear view for monitoring the progress of dishes.
In addition to maintaining precise temperatures, the mixing bowl comes with a flex edge beater, wire whip and dough hook to keep dishes such as soups and stews, risottos and sauces consistently mixed and evenly cooked under low heat.
The mixing bowls will be available in April in two different sizes - one that will fit all tilt-head model Stand Mixers, and one that will fit select 5 and 6 quart bowl-lift model Stand Mixers, and the 7 quart Pro Line® Series Stand Mixer. The mixing bowl can also be used as a standalone unit. Suggested retail price for each mixing bowl is $329.99.

Today, the KitchenAid brand offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars.
