Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

    After almost a year of use I had an issue. It was by far the easiest warranty claim EVER. One phone call, I had a whole new mixer in two days with a return shipping label for the old one. Great product, great service

    I have a medium size bakery/deli that really puts the kitchenAid to some hard task. i'm going on to 4 years since purchase and it is still working like the first day I got it. I do recommend if you are going to use it in a commercial environment, to add an extra bowl and attachment as the only thing that will slow this kitchenAid mixer is the time it takes for you to clean the bowl and attachment for the next task.

    Holy Smokes! For 6 years i have been baking around 100 loaves of quick bread with a Kitchen Aid Mixer i bought in the LATE 70'S! I sell all summer at 5 different Farmers Markets, so my mixer is going all the time. Why didn't i get this wonderful 8 qt mixer years ago? Yes u have to adjust your recipes, yes u have to strengthen your forearms and wrists (ha ha) but man can u bake bread! Cutting my baking time down a third for sure. True Kitchen Aid dependability, Motor on this commercial unit is awesome. Have not moved past speed 2 yet! Please get this mixer. You won't regret it . Also, let me save you some time researching $$$$. This is the best deal on the internet to my knowledge. Searched for hours. Webstaurant is fast and dependable for me.
    I’ve been wanting to make the switch to the commercial kitchenaid mixer for a while now and I regret not doing it sooner. This motor is much more powerful than the 6 quart professional and it’s very nice that it is nsf. The bowl size is very nice too because it’s taller than the smaller kitchenaid mixers but not wider, so its footprint is still minimal. This is the best mixer for the price.
    The mixer mixed like a dream generally! I am just disappointed at the attachments that look like crap right out of the box. I was excited to find such a good deal on this mixer; seriously, this is the best price I have seen on this model.
    Super glad this arrived quickly and with free shipping at a time I needed most - Christmastime! This one is louder than my old one, but working great.
    This Kitchen Aid was awesome for our first year. Worked great, obviously a lot of wear a tear in our kitchen. The motor went out about 9 months in but kitchen aid replaced so quick we didn’t even notice. Recommended
    This is a beautiful mixer. I like that it comes in different colors that you can choose from. It is perfect for professional bakers but beginners too
    Absolutely love my KITCHENAID 8 qt mixer. This is the best mixer we have purchased. You wont be disappointed. Super powerful. Mixes ingredients superbly. A must appliance in the kitchen
    It's a commercial grade KitchenAid and I love it! 8 quart is just right for making single or double batches of things. It's light enough that I can move it from a storage shelf to the work surface without hurting myself. We also got the apple corer/peeler/slicer to go with it and our pie making is a delight.
    I just noted that I never sent my review on this item, and it has been few years now with any complaints at all. Great buy!
    I love this kitchen aid, it’s so much better then the regular mixer. This is nsf so it’s a lot more powerful then the non nsf.
    This is my third KitchenAid stand mixer. The first I bought in the 70's (and is now used by my son). I had bought one of the "bad" 6 quart mixers where the gear box would overheat and strip out. We weren't sure at first if we would ever get one again, but the one from the 70's was solid as a tank (the 6 quart was a Yugo). I am very happy to say this is a fantastic mixer, it takes everything we throw at it without straining. I'm so glad they still build a tank!
    This mixer works like a charm. I've had it for so little time and I absolutely love it. It's actually my moms but I love it so much I can't stay away from it.
    Absolutely love my Kitchenaid mixer! Although I do not own a business, I did finally invest in this mixer for all the baking I do and it has yet to let me down. Gets the job for Thanksgiving gatherings and fundraisers of all sorts. A little bit of a hassle to transport - naturally - but overall very satisfied and definitely worth the buck!
    I would rate this mixer 3.5 stars. Honestly, I wish I just shelled out the extra money for a Globe. This motor sounds like it's really working hard when I am mixing thick doughs. I feel like the quality of KitchenAid has really gone down since Hobart sold the company. Though, this is a way nicer model than the retail stores sell. The attachments are all solid stainless steel with NSF rating. I can mix a triple batch of cookie dough in it.
    This mixer works like a charm. I've had it for so little time and I absolutely love it. It's actually my moms but I love it so much I can't stay away from it.
    After much research this one supposedly had more power. I also know KitchenAid is a reliable brand, but wanted to check others because I needed a bigger qt container for my increasing baked orders. It's true that the noise is minimal compared to other machines without wobbling on the counter. It's also able to handle double recipes (24-36 cupcakes) with no problems and still have space to spare for increasing recipes. I've made a great decision!

    I love my Kitchen Aid Counter top Mixer, It works as well as my bigger Holbart. great for smaller batches and easier clean up than having to use my big one. I would rather do two batches in this rather than one bigger one in my big one.
    I am in love with this mixer! Definitely worth the reasonable price that it is being sold at. The larger bowl is great for making small amounts of bread dough. we will be using on a daily basis.
