    There’s a dime trick too to know when it’s close enough to the bottom of the bowl. You’re supposed to be able to slip a dime in your bowl and when the mixer is on, it should slightly spin the dime around!

    i have to say it's so refreshing that learning new things is something so celebrated on this channel. none of us have all the answers and it's fun to learn along with each other. anyways, great little mixer tip, i didn't know that either! immediately whipping some cream 🏃

    There actually is a small independent gadget for that called the "everpenny" iirc. It keeps the attachment exactly 1 penny width away from the bowl, and since its just a small plastic part ensuring the right distance to screw in that small screw you showed, you won't need to retighten or loosen that screw anymore.

    Luv that we have all decided as a society that the instructions manual is useless until we struggles for a couple if years and then realise if we just read the manual we wouldnt have the need to aid the kitchen aid

      Brands should put instructions on the body and put the manual too,like airfryers do .

      I personally read the manual to make sure but ppl like my mum doesnt cause she cant read the too small text. Also, she likes watching videos of tutorials in yt so she doesn't have much need to do any adjustments to these type of things cause she does it according to the vid lol. Im not sure if a lot of other people are like this too

    This is perfect because I was just mixing some egg whites with my friend today and we ran into the same issue and heeding your example elevated the bowl a bit. We will try to use the screw tommorow, thanks! 😂👍

    For people with Kenwood kitchen machines: you can adjust how low an attachment goes down directly on the attachment via a nut that can be loosened. Kenwood even has a dedicated spanner for it.

    In my mixer, the bowl raises up. But there's a huge gap between the bowl, and whatever mixing apparatus I use. I had no idea this was a thing, and now I need to see if it will work on mine.
