Customer questions about this product

Does the hp (horsepower) rating of this mixer reflect the output to the mixer bowl?
Our motor hp reference is meant to indicate the horsepower rating of the motor itself and not the mixer's horsepower output to the mixer bowl.
What are the differences between commercial and residential KitchenAid mixers?
Compared to residential KitchenAid mixers, commercial KitchenAid units are more powerful, incorporate durable components, offer extra safety features, and have an extended warranty. Commercial mixers also come with an 8 qt. stackable stainless steel bowl rather than a 6 qt. bowl, allowing you to mix larger batches of ingredients. While residential mixers include cast aluminum accessories that must be hand washed, commercial mixers come with heavy-duty stainless steel accessories that are dishwasher safe for fast cleanup. KitchenAid commercial mixers are NSF Listed and include a 73 1/2” orange commercial-grade cord to ensure superior safety and sanitation. Working with a residential mixer in a commercial kitchen will void the warranty on your unit and may result in health inspector violations.

    Only been using this mixer for 3 months to knead dough with about 8 cups of flour. The metal plate that holds the hook cracked and broke. I been trying to call Kitchenaid customer service but was put on hold for an hour and got hung up! Very disappointed and I don't know what to do with this broken equipment.....

    Love it! We had a 6qt. KitchenAid mixer and it broke recently. So, we replaced it with this 8qt. mixer and will never look back. A little expensive but worth the price!

    Absolutely great buy! Best price anywhere and it only took two days from order to my front door. The machine is a beast and handles anything we throw at it.

    A great mixer for every day use and small batches. I use mine to make everything form whipped cream to brownies. These are very reliable mixers and easy to get fixed if something goes wrong. I like having a medium size mixer around so I don't have to fire up my 30 quart all the time.

    I LOVE this mixer. This KitchenAid 8 qt. is just the size I love, and is way better than a bulky commercial mixer. The torque is very powerful and handles big batches of dough easily. Definitely recommend this mixer!

    Love this mixer! It has been a lifesaver in production of products. I am so pleased with the quality and the weight of the attachments. Wonderful!

    This Stand Mixer works really well and it performs the most tasks easily. I have loaded it to batches of cakes and brownies and they were so easy that looks cowardice. I jumped into the Pizza dough and Italian Breads, again easy task. Well, The ratio between velocity and torque should be kept in mind to avoid any overheat through time.

    Excellent Equipment!! Powerfull Stand Mixer, exceed expectation. Now we are intended to trust the equipment and the store. Even with its noticeable power also it is extremely silent.

    This mixer is perfect for my needs of baking! It is the perfect size and it is great quality! You can't go wrong with KitchenAid!

    from EllaRe's Sweets, LLC Posted on

    I've worked with Kitchenaid mixers for many years now and this is by far the most powerful and most quiet one I've owned. I love that the whisk and paddle attachments are made of a much heavier and sturdier material than the noncommercial models. The bowl, however, is much thinner and seems very cheaply made. I've been using it for a few weeks now with no issues at all and am happy with my purchase.

    from Nutmeg Cake Design Posted on

    Absolutely fantastic! I love this mixer. I've had it for about 9 months now and it's never let me down. It's got an incredibly strong motor that powers through thick dough but is gentle enough for whipping cream.

    from Zulu Co Posted on

    I grew up using KitchenAid mixers. Heck, my grandmas 30 year old one still works great!! When I opened a small bakery to make mostly cupcakes, it was natural for me to get KitchenAid. So the commercial kitchen-aid didnt get put through too much hard work or tough dough. The first one I bought the hub cover just fell off one day. Didnt even ever open it or use hub cover. It just fell off. So I called KitchenAid and they replaced it. Meanwhile, I decided to purchase a 2nd mixer just like it for the bakery for cookies. First time I used it, oil spewed out all over the place within the first 15 seconds. Called KitchenAid again, got a return call several days later and they sent me a FedEx label to pack it up and take it to nearest ship location. Got a replacement and new mixer I ordered about the same day. Unpacked both mixers. Made a batch of cupcakes and oil spewed out of the one. So I called KitchenAid again, they sent a call tag and sent out another replacement. So I decided to use the cookie mixer. Turned it on, oil spewed out! WHAT THE HECK! This is within the first 15 seconds of using it to cream melted butter and sugar!!! So I call KitchenAid again. This time it takes them a week to call me back...a WEEK! In that time frame replacement #4 showed up. I was nervous and sure enough. I turned it on and oil spewed out of this one too. By now I'm livid! I call KitchenAid AGAIN. Another week goes by before I get a call back. (I called several more times in there). They assure me that they will test both mixers that need to be replaced before sending them to me to make sure they were not defective. So in the meantime, I order another kitchenaid from a different site. It arrives. I turn it on and guess what....yep, oil spewes out! Pack that one up and get a refund. So now mixer #6 & #7 have arrived today. I plug them in, one had a batch of cupcakes the other had no dough or anything in it....BOTH SPEWED OUT OIL AND ONE SENT METAL SHARDS FLYING! So I put in another call and an email to Kitchenaid and haven't heard back yet. So now I have ordered the Globe SP8 mixer....2 of them. Hope they are better. Its a shame to write this about what used to be my favorite brand of mixer. But 7 defective mixers in 3 short weeks.....sigh.

    Great mixer, love the 8 quart capacity. I have no complaints to say about this amazing machine. Easy to clean and easy to use too!

    from 3 Leaf Tea Posted on

    I have been using this nixer for a litle more than a year. Overall, I like this stand mixer. However, having said that I do find one major problem with the spiral dough hook provided. It is way to short and does not extend far enough toward the bowl side. This is a problem in that i requires the user to stop the machine, remove the dough hook an scrape all the way to the bottom to free dry ingredients which may be stuck at the bottom. If the hook reached closer to the bottom as does the Model N50 Kitchenaid, then the dry ingredients would be picked up and mixed in to the dough. This would allow more efficient use of the mixer.

    from Baker Ted Posted on

    I had the artisan mixer before this one, this is superior in all ways. Ive made batters of all thickness, icings and even bread doughs with out any issues. I definitely recommend this mixer for those wanting the power of an industrial mixer but does not have space for it.

    from EdibleCreationsByMish Posted on

    The KitchenAid 8 Quart Commercial Countertop Mixer is a great countertop mixer! We use this for our pastries and sometimes for mixing small batches of bread. We are quite satisfied with this purchase.

    from Bread & Joe Posted on

    Countertop Mixer

    Lets see. I love this mixer. I bought it in replacement / addition to a 6 quart Kitchenaid.. Quieter, smoother operation and does the job on my dough needs.

    from Mr. A's Beignets Posted on

    So far I love my mixer. Now I just need to get some more bowls. They have great prices on these compared to other stores. I would definitely buy another one from them.

    from Home Use Posted on

    I ABSOLUTELY ADORE my KitchenAid commercial mixer..I had my previous KitchenAid for 40 years so I knew they make a fantastic product and that old mixer still works, but I needed a bigger one and chose the 8 quart...it is great for the big batch cooking I love to do..no more flour thrown in my face either..it works wonderfully and is so pretty to look at..pretty quiet too...I highly recommend for the quality and for the GREAT price Webstaurant offers it for..comes very well packaged.

    I use this mixer in my bakery EVERY DAY! It's great with everything from frosting to cookie batter. Easy to attach, remove, and clean. I would order it a million more times. I'm actually looking to order a later model.

    from Tiffanee & Co. Bakery Posted on

    This kitchen aid is a good size for professional use, although in hindsight I would have chosen a smaller model. The dark color is great because scuff marks don’t show up as easily.

    from Jack & Alice LLC. Posted on

    Good professional mixer , for not so small quantities. The back attachement to make sure the bowl is set in place unscrew very easily and the wisk attachement biggest branch broke off the base after first use of making italian meringue. Still able to use , however , i find that size wisk not being well designed and poorly assembled.

    from Pascaline Fine Catering Posted on

    We needed a mixer larger than 6Qt and this works perfectly without spillage. Great for making tart doughs and cookie batters. So far, it has been functioning fine and it came in great condition. The only thing I do not like about it is the handle as it's not very comfortable to carry.

    from Honeybee Patisserie Posted on

    Well built mixer and components. 8 quarts is perfect for large amounts of dough, butter cream and batters. The components are heavier and more sturdy then residential models, which is a great asset and well worth the price!

    from JW Cakes and More Posted on

    This mixer runs smoothly and quietly. The color is great and it's super easy to wipe down. My only regret is not buying more than one!

    from Sugar Rush by Theresa Posted on

    Great versatile kitchenaid. Not a hobart, but good for small non bread quantities and small pastry cremes batches and such. We had an issue when first receiving it with the speed selector but Webstaurant went out of its way to send a replacement quickly. Kitchenaid was also contacted but couldn't care less and suggested to send it back, and wait for up to 6 weeks. Not acceptable for a NSF.

    Posted on

    Excellent. Solid construction, and accurate measurements. The only downside is the metal corners on the scoop handles are a bit sharp and may cut your hand if you aren't careful

    Posted on

    This product is amazing! Looks great in my industrial kitchen and everyone love it! We usually use it to make cheesecake, cookies and cupcakes. I live in Dominican Republib where the electricity is unstable, but my kitchenaid have been working perfectly fine.

    from Nocciola Posted on

    Great mixer! The bowl is a little difficult to get snapped into place, but is workable. Feels like solid construction and good quality. Not all that much bigger overall compared to the 4.5qt KitchenAid mixer, but a lot more capacity and power.

    from Mandi Mae's Baking Company LLC Posted on

    The commercial version of the Kitchenaid stand mixer is a good value. It has an 8qt bowl, which I find to be a good size for most projects.

    from Madison Sourdough Company Posted on

    I needed to upgrade to a larger mixer for my bakery from the 6qt that I have. Webstaurant had the best price and free shipping. It arrivrd within 3 days and so far has performed very well. I need to get used to mixing a little less/lower speed because I am not used to the power of this- err on the side of undermixing until you get used to it! The only complaint is with Kitchenaid, the bowl is a thinner metal than the 6qt I am used to and it quickly got scratched using my flat spatula for scraping out frosting.

    Posted on

    We've been using KitchenAid for many years in our home. When it was time to purchase for the new bakery, the decision was easy. This thing ROCKS!! We initially thought we were just getting the standard type unit with an orange cord and stainless steel tools. Boy were we wrong! We highly recommend this product! Power is exceptional and the longer cord actually helps when operating in a commercial environment.

    from Creech Farms Posted on

    Our restaurant has a dedicated KitchenAid 8 quart commercial mixer for making small batches of gluten free pizza dough on a daily basis. This mixer is a true workhorse and plows through tough gluten free dough like a champ. It is powerful and reliable, a world of difference from KitchenAid's consumer mixers.

    Posted on

    so far i love my mixer the only negative thing is that i just got a email saying something about a lawsuit going on about the mixer, other than that it works just as expected and is very quiet

    from Kedbys Kreations & Party Rental Posted on

    This mixer/ bowl offers excellent capacity which prompted us to purchase two units. After 3 months of use the bowl handle fell off and the wire whisk came apart. It's a shame to have to give such a low rating but the replacement cost for these items is significant.

    from Maggie's Snackette & Catering Service Posted on

    Thank you for your review! A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact shortly to see how we may help. We do carry replacement items for Kitchen Aid. Check out the KitchenAid KSMC8QBOWL 8 Qt. stainless steel mixing bowl and the KitchenAid KSMC7QEW stainless steel elliptical wire whip.

    I upgraded to this 8 qt KitchenAid mixer from a 5 qt version, and have been extremely pleased. My expectations and needs were met easily. Lots of power: check! Large capacity: check! Compatible with other KitchenAid accessories: check! Solid build (including heavy stainless steel paddle, hook, and whisk): check! Minimal countertop space occupation: check! Great price/value: check! Now I have plenty of power and volume for making pasta, cookie batter, pie dough, and everything else my baking mind wants to pursue. I do wish the orange power cord was black, but understand the intent and function of the orange color is to say that this mixer means serious business which it undoubtedly does.

    Posted on

    One awesome feature that I greatly appreciate is the soft start-up. When paddling up cream cheese frosting, and while adding the powered sugar, I didn't get blasted in the face by a poof of sugar when I turned the mixer on to high. Smartly designed.

    You can't go wrong with KitchenAid. This mixed is just right for the amount of baking I do on my food truck. Solid power and control of speed. I like the addition of a heavy duty commercial cord since it will be moved often. The bowl is not as heavy as past models so I'm not sure how well it would retain cold for some mixing needs.

    from ZoSo Foods Inc Posted on

    Purchased this for my bakery about a month ago, and it has not disappointed at all. Very reliable machine that can be used for a wide-range of tasks. We use it for bread dough to cake batter, to buttercreams and icings. Very easy to switch from paddle to other attachments. The 8-qt bowl goes on easily and is very secure. Does not move at all while mixing. Machine is quiet and smooth. Highly recommended.
