Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.
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.
How do I know if this mixer is suitable for my needs?
This mixer is great for a variety of different applications. However, to ensure that you find a mixer that will cover your needs, we recommend referring to the manufacturer literature for more detailed information about what each specific model can handle. If you don't see the food you wish to mix, look for closest comparable food in texture. For more information on which mixer will be best for you, check out our Commercial Mixer Buying Guide!

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!

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!

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.

Kareem P. on 11/26/2013

I purchased this mixer for my small bakery business. It is a great price point for a small industrial-style mixer. It handles all of the abuse I put it through from making Italian buttercreams that can tax and overheat a motor to very stiff yeast doughs, this mixer has no problem handling these tasks. The 8qt bowl is good for most of my needs.

Veronica A. from Bread By Veronica on 10/16/2021

Other than a chef’s knife, this is my #1 tool in my kitchen as a pastry chef. It’s a workhorse. Unlike many, it is completely stable on the counter, no matter how heavy the dough I have in there is. The attachments reach almost all areas of the bowl (thou, like with any mixer, scraping down sides and bottom is a must for full mixing). I don’t know what I’d do without it.

Jessica S. from Petaljammies Cake & Pastry on 02/09/2021

This kitchen-aid is a work horse. When buying it I was searching for the biggest and strongest. This is definitely it. I bought it as a gift for my mom who is an avid baker. Though it is the biggest and best, I totally could have gotten away with buying smaller as this was total overkill. I have trouble finding certain attachments that come with smaller units. But overall its still a fantastic machine.

Wesley K. on 07/21/2020

DO NOT let the high price-tag of Kitchenaid put you off these mixers. Every single Kitchenaid mixer I have ever used has been incredible and they're ALL tough as nails. This particular model is used for my college's pastry classes and get beat on by freshmen and sophomores alike every semester and all of the units and their attachments still work perfectly.

Patricia C. on 06/08/2020

Great stand mixer, it works so good. I used this every day and never had one issue. It has a lot of power andis easy to clean .

Thomas J. on 04/10/2020

i upgraded from a household mixer to commercial for personnel use. this mixer can easily handle whatever you want it to do no problems at all

Wayne I. from Jennifer L. M on 01/10/2020

This is a great mixer. I have a KitchenAid professional at home and did not think there would be a huge difference between the professional and commercial; but there absolutely is. The commercial is much more powerful and able to handle small batches of bread very well.

Kim S. from BBC on 01/03/2020

We got this mixer to help in our bagel making process as well as for making our baked goods. The first one we purchased the attachment plate cracked, Kitchen aid sent a replacement because it happened in less than a year, and less than 6 months the new one has also cracked. We reviewed specifications very carefully to make sure it could handle the dough we put into it and it is "supposed" to be able to. This is a good mixer for basics but beware if you are using it for dough.

So versatile and some many great colors. This one is plenty powerful for any home cooking and the range of colors now is great. My go to for bread making.

Cody F. on 07/29/2019

This mixer has served us well batch after batch making sourdough and other kinds of bread. We run a small mill on it and love it. Good product.

Michael from Great Eats NWA on 07/23/2019

The machine and accessories are easily cleaned. We did have to make a slight adjustment to the set screw behind the bowl to adjust the height of the scraper in the bowl. For the price these machines are going for you would like to have a perfect machine, both mechanically and aesthetically.
