Attachments that Cusinart sells separately for their stand mixers include a dough hook, a food processor, citrus juicer, meat grinder and a pasta maker attachment. Select Cuisinart stand mixer models are sold with some of these attachments.
The dough hook attachment is used to easily and properly knead dough, and attaches to the mixer in the same place as the standard paddle. The food processor attachment chops and grinds a wide variety of ingredients. It connects to a plug on the top of the stand mixer, inside of a compartment. The food processor also comes slicing and shredding blade.
The juicer attachment comes with a larger container which the juicer sits inside to catch the citrus juice, and the meat grinder attachment allows a cook to turn any type of meat into ground meat. To attach it, the lid at the top of the stand mixer needs to be removed so it can be mounted to the low-powered plug on the front.
The pasta maker attachment also attaches to the low-powered plug at the top front of the mixer. To use it, small pieces of dough should be dropped into the chute. It comes with several attachments to make a variety of pasta shapes.
