You never know what you will find here on MixingItUp. Today I have a tip to keep flour from flying out of your stand mixer when you turn it on. I use this for my Kitchen
Aid Stand Mixer but this will work for any stand mixer, just be sure the hole size accommodates the beaters when they are moving
Even though I had my mixer on the lowest speed the flour still got all over the place. I was getting very frustrated so I came up with this. I used an aluminum foil pie plate (that was already in my cupboard) and cut out the center a little bigger than the part of the mixer that the beater is attached to. Be careful, the cut edges are sharp.
