I know I can't use a US Kitchenaid without a transformer, but are the attachments OK?

Also which ones do you find useful.

As far as I am aware, no you can't, the way they attach is different I think

I have read that everything else fits except for the ice cream maker.

The ice cream attachment is different but I have bought other stuff, bowls, beaters, and grater attachments without any problems.

The ones that attach to the front of the machine it doesn't matter what motor drives them.
I've just bought the extra grating and slicing attachments but haven't used them yet because I've been using my  food processor(I bought extra attachments for this through Amazon as well).
I have the citrus juicer as well but only use if doing large quantities.

Bowls etc. vary between the different models.

If you look at the bit where the beaters etc attach, on the Australian ones there is a round plate around the stem - this isn't there on the US ones, it's a health thingy that is required here but not there apparently. So most attachments go under this so it doesn't affect it, as far as I know only the ice cream maker isn't compatible.

Sorry, that's about as clear as mud but I can't find any pics online to explain it!

There's a fix for the ice cream maker too. I saw it on YouTube. Sorry, can't get it load in phone at the moment but will edit if I find it. It looked reasonably easy and would be reversible. Still tossing up if I should get the icecream maker, but would get from US and try the fix if I did.

The icecream maker does sound a problem.
There are some ingenious  solutions people have found.

Sorry for the hijack, but while we're asking KitchenAid questions - how many bowls comes standard with it, and can you buy them in extra sizes?  I tend to make things requiring 2 bowls on the go, and my cheapo Breville mixer has 2 bowls, but looking at the KA it doesn't seem to?

You only get one bowl with the mixer.

I got the ice cream maker for xmas and it is excellent. Amazon reviews say that the Ben & Jerry ice cream recipe book is brill .

You can get extra bowls in copper and glass as well.
I just bought a small metal bowl from Kitchendirect for cream or icing and it sits inside the one on my kitchenaid so no extra storage room required.

Ok, how on earth do you fool Amazon into posting KA stuff here? Every time I've tried it's come back with "can't post to that location"  cry1.gif

I don't know. It was all through the Amazon site but one lot was through another supplier.
Maybe the size?

CK do your KA search then look in the left column not far down it will say Amazon Global eligible, click on that, and it will show what will come here.

Actually maybe there is no logic to it because I wanted a appliance cover for it and they didn't ship that.

Humph. No citrus juicer for me.

Though seriously, I wound up paying $24.95 for the sausage stuffers locally when they go for $6.95 on Amazon. Peevish I was, I tells you!

You acan also buy a smaller bowl too, 3/4 metal size one. Comes in handy when you don't have big amounts. I want a glass one just cause I saw them on the fancy cooking shows. biggrin.gif

I bought an ice cream maker and took it to a register kitchen aide repair guy and he changed the attachment to fit Oz KA. I think I paid about $45
