I’m really a frustrated inventor at heart. I love/hate coming across products that are awesome and that I can’t live without. I’m happy that my life will be better, but it bugs me that I didn’t think of it.
It’s like Spanx. I know a lot of people were cutting off their pantyhose before Sara Blakely made a multi-million dollar company out of it, but I was doing it for years and can’t believe it didn’t occur to me that Hey, there’s a product here. I will never let it go. It kills me.
I bake a lot. I have a Kitchen Aid mixer that I seriously put through its paces on a regular basis. I don’t like to stop and scrape the bowl because I’m lazy, but mostly because I get paranoid that I’ll ruin a recipe by not beating it for the correct amount of time. Is that OCD? I don’t know, but it was right in front of me and I missed it.
So this thing called the Beater Blade has attached wings which scrape the bowl while it mixes. I ordered it from Amazon today and it’s on the way. It’s gonna change my life, but it won’t get me on Oprah.
