Customer Q&AAsk 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.
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!
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.

Joyce W. from Elwell Etcetera on 03/18/2016

It worked great. The only thing is not that quiet when I turn it up to 8. It's not as quiet as the 5qt artisan mixer. But I do like the higher volume in it.

Jean E. on 11/25/2020

How did I ever live without a Kitchenaid mixer?! Love the bigger size of this one. Don't need the bright cord, but doesn't hurt!

Molly S. on 09/12/2020

What can i say about this.... Well it is my favorite! I just love everything about this. I have been even finding reasons to use this that normally i wouldn't. Love it. It the prefect color. The bowl securely snaps in place as well as locks onto pegs. The different types of mixing heads locks in as well. I do wish the whisk head would go closer to the bottom of the bowl but it does just fine. If you need a mixer for anything from just simple small batches to large mixes get this! You will not be disappointed!

Sean M. from The Enchanted Bean on 12/16/2019

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.

Jeremy W. from Lab on 04/28/2019

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.

Timur from Mr. Pepe on 04/06/2019

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.

Katy M. from KMM on 01/17/2019

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

Alyssa R. from Attraversiamo on 01/13/2019

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

Daellion G. on 11/14/2018

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

Trey L. from The Pie Spot on 10/24/2018

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.

Joann H. from Full Of Beans Cafe on 06/25/2018

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!

Marybeth S. from Administrative Office Of The Courts on 01/02/2018

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.

Alan L. from 2 on 12/16/2017

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!

Timothy E. on 12/15/2017

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.

Dian R. from Pescadería Mar De Cortes on 10/03/2017

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!

Kennedy G. on 09/11/2017

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.

Verena V. on 08/03/2017

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.
