Ever hear the old adage (or is it a Proverb? ;) that a man should never buy his woman a gift that has a cord or plugs in?
DIY Guy has heard the adage. He knows it. And he has given me two gifts that plug-in. One was a vacuum for my birthday one year.
The other plug-in gift with-a-cord was this . . .
DIY Guy gave this AWESOME and most used appliance to me on our 7th Wedding anniversary. I was 9 months pregnant with our Baby Girl....and I asked for this wonderful corded gift.
My Kitchen-Aid mixer is just couple months shy of 21 years old. I still use it several times a week. I've made thousands (maybe millions?) of cookies with it. I've also made many frostings, cakes, bars, pizza dough and bread---
It has NEVER broke (unlike other appliances in my life) in all it's 21 years.
About that old adage:
Men....if your woman asks for a Kitchen-Aid Mixer, it is OK to get this ONE plug-in, corded gift for her. But please don't buy her a vacuum. :)
In fact, if your wife bakes....get her a Kitchen-Aid mixer even if she doesn't ask for one! She'll thank you. And she will bake you yummy cookies!
