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.

    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 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.

    from Pescadería mar de cortes Posted on

    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.

    from Foxland market Posted on

    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!

    Mixer comes with two attachments. This Does not come with flex edge beater (last one on right side)

    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.

    from Country Inn Posted on

    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.

    from The Amsterdam Posted on

    This mixer is a great size - does not take up too much space on the countertop. We use it quite a bit every day and it has held up quite well to all our mixing. It is a bit inconvenient that you can not lift the head back.

    from Posted on

    When it comes to countertop mixers this is the real deal. Powerful and effective but does not take up a lot of space like some other commercial mixers do.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    This 8 quart professional mixer is the best home or small business investment. Double, triple batches and more and all standard Kitchen Aid attachments fit beautifully!

    from Bella Cuginas Posted on

    I have had this exact mixer in the non-commercial size for nearly 10 years with no issue. Now that I have my own restaurant, I was finally able to upgrade to the larger version. It's truly a dream! So much power with a pretty red color to boot!

    I love, love my kitchen aid mixer! The best thing ever created. I use this for everything, from making dough to making pasta. It's just amazing! !

    This mixer is awesome for our small batches of desert dough. We use it on a daily basis and it just keeps on going. We are extremely happy we purchased this for small batches rather than using our large commercial mixer.

    from Lorenzo's Pizza Posted on

    While I absolutely love this commercial mixer - the handle fell off after less than 2 months of use. It's sadly only glued on. Odd. The mixer itself is substantially quieter than the non commercial 6 quart. Contacted Webrestaurant who then put me in contact with Kitchenaid. I was fearful it was going to be a huge production but fortunately it wasn't. Kitchenaid quickly sent out a replacement bowl - no questions asked.

    from Sweet Lulu's Bakery on Wheels Posted on

    This KitchenAid mixer is a great product. KitchenAid is a trusted brand and for good reason. This mixer is good quality and has held up under heavy use in our commercial kitchen.
