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.

I love the bowl capacity and the fact that this is a very quiet machine. You can basically do anything with this machine... I use it for breads, whipping creams, cakes, anything...I am so happy with this purchase...

    KitchenAid KSM8990DP Dark Pewter NSF 8 Qt. Bowl Lift Commercial Countertop Mixer - 120V, 1 3/10 hp

    This mixer is great! I love that it is 8 quarts it is not any bigger than a 6 quart mixer so it fits under the same height counter as a 6 quart. The motor is great and really powers through some of the tougher things like sugar cookie dough. I highly recommend getting one of these I love it so much!

    from Small and Simple confections Posted on

    I love kitchen aid mixers so much. This one is a nice upgrade from the standard mixer as it has the lever on the side to lower the bowl as opposed to just the lock to lean the paddle backward.

    Lots of baking!

    I purchased this machine in November, 2016, to accompany my geared commercial mixer. I have made pizza dough, bread, and cookies. I have also made whipped toppings in very small quantities: Single servings, to be more precise. So the performance is excellent for small to moderate amounts. So far, I know that I can use it in a pinch it if my off-brand geared mixer goes down for repairs. Parts are inexpensive, and easy to find. And this KitchenAid will run all KitchenAid attachments and accessories. It is NSF certified, and KitchenAid will warrant their product for home as well as commercial use. This means that KitchenAid will send a full replacement should the mixer be defective, and it is honored for two years from the date of purchase. For heavier bread dough in larger quantities, on a frequent basis, I would step up a Globe SP-10. But so far, the KitchenAid Commercial 8 serves my needs very well, and is likely to do so for quite some time. It is light in weight, and easy to move around the counter. It displays beautifully with its semi-gloss cobblestone finish. And finally, I can run its stainless steel attachments through the dishwasher with no worries. What more could I ask?

    I thought I needed a third mixer between my 20 qt and 5 qt, but when my 5 qt died, I replaced it with the 8 qt. It works great, but I do have a couple minor complaints, It doesn't mix very small amounts, 2 egg whites or yolks, for example, but it will mix 2-3 batches of cake batter or icing. However, if you'd like to use the full volume of the bowl, the top of the beater will be covered, and it's difficult to grasp to remove on a normal basis, but covered in batter or icing, pretty messy. I wish there was more space between the top of the bowl and the motor, and more length to grasp, especially on the whisk attachment. I'd highly recommend the beater blade that fits this mixer. Overall I'm pretty happy with it, and I love that it's commercial grade because it gets a lot of use!

    This is much better than the "professional" model and at the best price I could find. It came in great condition and it works well.

    Wonderful amazing beautiful KitchenAid dark pewter 8 quart bowl. Super heavy duty very well constructed and crafted the price was fair. This item with proper care will be the only one you'll never need to buy

    from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on

    I absolutely Love my mixer it has so an amazing amount of power. I use it to make buttercream and it will mix everything together very quickly

    from Gem City Cakes Posted on

    KitchenAid Dark Pewter NSF approved Mixer is very heavy duty and is easy to use. Many of our customers even heavy duty bakers ask for the KitchenAid name brand in the Units that are manufactured by Hurricane Concessions & Rentals, LLC out of Lucedale, MS.

    from Hurricane Concessions & Rentals, LLC Posted on

    Have used for about a week now and so far so good! It's quieter than my old one. The height of the bowl is nice for making dough, but makes it harder to add ingredients while running the mixer.
