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.

    Love this commercial mixer. With the larger bowl size we are able to make more dough at once. Great addition to any kitchen big or small.

    from Tater Cakes LLC Posted on

    This mixer is a life saver! We use it to make whipped cream, pastries. mashed potatoes, and have bought the attachments in order to use it as an ice cream maker, and to make fresh sausage. It is sturdy, attractive, and works well.

    from Kitchen 519 Posted on

    OK, this is my DREAM mixer. I have used household Kitchen Aids in house for years. But, the bowl isn't big enough, the motor not powerful enough, etc. So, this is THE best price available. It is a beast that can handle heavy-duty and large mixing. I can easily triple a smaller recipe without worry it will overflow, overheat, burn out. It does not do as well with small batches, but that's a very small concession. Plus, I have the other if need be.

    from Russell Street Bar-B-Que Posted on

    I love this commercial grade mixer!! After killing a couple of home ones I decided to upgrade to commercial as my orders grew larger. A quiet powerhouse for use, used mostly for bread dough's.

    from Sweet Treats by Sonia Posted on

    This is a great mixer, my aunt got me this as a gift. I had a 5 qt and 4.5 qt in the past but I love that I don't have to make double batches. I also love the bowl lift because there is no bowl plate to be worn out.

    Posted on

    this is my fifth kitchenaid, and the most quiet one. It doesn't screech, like the non commercial ones I purchased before. The purring sound is very agreeable, and it could even be used in an open kitchen in a family home setting. I use it mostly for pastries (egg whites), and an occasional bread. Works very well.

    from Merveilleux M Posted on

    Looks like a million bucks. Works well so far. Really liked that this model came with a couple of attachments. Will say placing the actual mixing bowl on can be a challenge and lifting the bowl with lever is also a bit of work. All in all works well and we use it daily for large batches of glaze.

    from Turntable Cafe Posted on

    Great quality Mixer, for use in restaurant and bakeries. Our clients have bought several and no complaints. Just a wonderful choice for any restaurant, with the KitchenAid guarantee.

    from AMERMEX FROZEN PRD Posted on

    I just made my first batch of bread with this new mixer, having upgraded from a 6qt pro model. I made a 6 lb batch of a rather stiff oatmeal/ww/bread dough. First off, I love how quiet the motor is compared to the earlier model. I also love the heft and look of the stainless steel attachments. However, the mixer struggled mixing the dough. From time to time, it slowed down, and appeared about to stall. It never did, though, getting through the six minute kneading. The second complaint I have it that the bowl wobbled. I'm sure there was a lot of sideways pressure on the bowl as the dough hook worked that heavy dough. Nevertheless, I felt I had to hold the bowl in place while it worked, and that really isn't acceptable. It would be wonderful if there was some adjustment to make the bowl more stable because it really is a wonderful mixer.

    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.
