Summary

Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Kneads, Mixes, Froths

Make bakery-worthy treats quickly and easily with the Kitchenaid Ultra Power Stand Mixer. One of the secrets to beautifully-baked goods is the consistency of the batter. Poorly mixed ingredients and chunks can be disastrous. This pro mixer helps you achieve a creamy, oven-ready consistency. It is also designed to mix, froth and knead anything you wish, from bread to decadent cakes. You can set it to one of the three mixing modes and choose out of the ten speeds available, customizing it to whatever you're making.

The Kitchenaid Stand Mixer is designed to be an expert in the kitchen. It runs on a powerful motor, is made of stainless steel and allows up to five quartz of batter. This means it's powerful and fast, which means it'll get you out of the kitchen sooner. It also lets you mix generous amounts and when you're done, you can either throw it in the dishwasher or wipe it clean.

I have never really had any use or need for such an expensive, heavy duty blender; but, after buying this one, I've learned that you surely get what you pay for. When I think of a blender, I never imagine this multi purpose tool. This thing can make pasta, grind down meat, case meat for bratwurst, and so, SO much more. It is very quiet and all of the components are simple to assemble. The biggest issue I have is the weight. This thing is incredibly heavy and older or disabled people may have a difficult time putting it away. There is always the option of leaving it on the counter, but I am not a fan of that. It is a very good looking product, so leaving it on the counter does not really do much harm, it is just not my style. It is sleek, durable, and when people come over, it is surely a topic of discussion. I went with the red one since our pots and pans are red, and the majority of our kitchen accent colors are red. This machine was easy to un-package, and minus the small time it took cleaning out the bowl and attachments, it was pretty much ready to use right out of the box. It is easy to use, with only having to deal with two levers. One to lock the device in place when you are blending, or have it in the up position, and the other switch is to control the blending speed. When I bought this machine, it came wit ha hook for bread, and a whisk attachment. I have only used the whisk attachment and it works very will. This attachment can be very difficult to clean if you let it sit for long periods of time after using it, so it is in your best interest to rinse or clean it off immediately after use. The bowl is quite big and fits a good amount of any mix. It is very simple to clean and locks into the machine with little, to no effort. When I bought this machine I had a difficult time doing so because of the steep price tag. Again, I have never pictured myself buying such and expensive machine that I know I will use infrequently. Now I can see why it is so expensive.

I use my kitchen aid for mixing mostly cakes, cookies and icing. My mother in law gave me one for Christmas(she swears by hers for everything) and I was excited because I heard mostly good reviews about it. Well it's not at all the greatest. The bowl does not allow all mixes to be mixed well. The kitchen aid button that goes where the pasta tool goes falls off all the time. The stainless steel stains. I am just not happy with it for these reasons.

My husband got me one of these this past mother's day. I have wanted one of these mixers forever. This mixes anything and everything. I use this to make dinners or even just a quick pudding. Easy to easy. Just a pain to find a place to store it. But still makes my counter pretty.

Before owning this mixer I only ever used a handheld one. This was by far the best gift I ever received. It works for so many things from mixing cake mix to cookie dough. So many different attachments you can use with it too.
