I am surprised by the abundance of five-star reviews for this product. My first one burned out after a month or so of what I would consider pretty light use in a professional setting. Which is to say, large batches of cookie dough twice a week, along with some small batches of brioche, challah, and croissant dough. Kitchenaid quickly replaced it but now I am quite shy about pressing its capabilities. Unless I am mixing something really light, I reduce the quantity dramatically. It is not hard to stress the motor at all, and when you do it makes some frightening noises that sound like plastic crumbling and snapping. It seems to me that since this item is advertised as capable of mixing bread dough, it should be able to do that without worry. The bread and brioche dough I mix in it is not particularly dense -- the bread Read More

This baby is a serious work horse! Don't hesitate if making a decision to buy this. We have a high volume cafe and bake our own cakes and pies as well as make all the frostings for the cakes and this sweet baby gets the job done effortlessly! I can't live without it!

Rebecca K. from Skyline Cafe on 06/21/2017

While these mixers are great, we go through them about every 6-8 months just from beating buttercream. They start to drop grease (?) from the top which gets into the buttercream so we have to toss the batch....and then the mixer. We tried to warranty replace one with Kitchenaid and it was such a hassle. Wish there was a stronger commercial alternative that was an 8-10 quart mixer.

Bakeshop on 05/31/2022

Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry to hear about the trouble with this unit and the warranty process. We offer several other brands of small mixers that may suit your needs better. When comparing mixers, it’s important not to get too hung up on horsepower, as that is measured from the motor, not the beater. Please reach out to our customer service team for suggestions!

I just received my Kitchen Aid 8 qt mixer and I'm in love! I no longer have to make a single kilo recipe at a time. I can double and even triple some recipes and this beast of a machine handles it with no problem, at all. I used to have the 6 qt mixer and it couldn't handle a double batch. The 8qt commercial NSF certified mixer does what the 6qt mixer wishes it could do! Do yourself a favor and buy one!

David M. on 11/30/2021

This one is really a good size. We use it for our catering kitchen and it fits well. I highly suggest having one in your kitchen if you do things that require a lot of mixing. to be honest, I prefer a hand held mixer though for clean up

Joy N. from LANIERS CATERING on 04/17/2021

lI ove this Kitchenaid mixer. I’ve always had the smaller artisan Kitchenaid mixer, and this upgrade is completely worth the cost. It makes making royal icing or meringues so much more worth it, since you are able to fit nearly double to amount into this one than the other smaller mixers. Definitely reccomend

Alexandrea on 12/16/2020

What can you say that hasn't been said? The only mechanical issue I've ever had with KitchenAid mixers was solved by this newer bowl lift design. And having home and commercial units in use (I decorated my home unit like a fighter plane because I'm a big child) I can really feel the difference in commercial. This thing is a beast.

Gary G. from Bad Penny Coffee Co. on 09/13/2020

only 4 stars here, as we had some trouble with shipping. the product itself is incredible. kitchen aid is in a class of its own. this thing is an absolute beast, we produce so much using this product and have had only 1 issue with that kitchen aid immediately covered and replaced free of charge.

Charles V. from Main & Vine on 04/23/2020

Came as expected. It's large enough for my small bakery but also small enough to put on my prep table. Great purchase, would highly recommend.

Rebecca E. from Bakerzdozen on 02/23/2020

I bought the mixer 2 months ago. I used it couple time only. Yesterday it started to make loud noise, after that I felt some smell like something was burning inside the mixer. can you help me with the problem?

Oleg F. from JULIA on 05/14/2019

Thank you for your review, Yuliya! We are sorry this KitchenAid KSM8990OB Onyx Black NSF 8 Qt. Bowl Lift Commercial Countertop Mixer - 120V, 1 3/10 hp has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!

This machine is fantastic. I have the 5qt kitchenaid as well but this is great for making triple batches in a short period of time l have a small cake business on the side and this really helps to cut down the time.

Vanessa A. on 05/03/2019

This is my first commercial mixer, and I'm very pleased. Whatever you're mixing, this unit will do the job, and for me that a lot of bread and pizza dough. Its easy to clean, sturdy, stays put, and I love the ability to add attachments.

Ida M. on 04/12/2019

Purchased this item in July 2015 and it has worked properly ever since. Good, quality product that has done the job it was designed for without fail.

Kitchen S. from LOST BOYS GARAGE INC. on 02/22/2019

I absolutely love this Kitchenaid mixer. I’ve always had the smaller artisan Kitchenaid mixer, and this upgrade is completely worth the cost. It makes making royal icing or meringues so much more worth it, since you are able to fit nearly double to amount into this one than the other smaller mixers. Definitely reccomend for anyone who bakes regularly.

Stephanie F. on 01/06/2019

I am so happy with this purchase. I have owned the Professional series for over 35 years but this commercial one is a game changer for me. It holds so much more in capacity, which ultimately makes much less work for me mixing up several batches of cookie dough. It fits under my cabinets on my standard kitchen counter top, so I am pleased about that. I do wish it had a tilt head for ease of removing the paddle but I have figured out how to best remove it and its not that troublesome. This price point is fantastic on this really made Kitchen Aid.

Jeanette M. from Rising Simplicty on 09/10/2018

This mixer is the workhorse of our kitchen. Every pastry chef relies on this product working no matter what and this has not let us down in over the year we have owned it.

Michele R. from Heritage Bread Co on 07/31/2018

I have used many kitchen aid mixers m, and this is by far the best one yet. I finally found a mixer that can stand up to the amount of buttercream and cakes that I make. Great quality and super durable.

Jennie H. from Jennie's Cake Creations on 04/27/2018

LOVE this mixer! This is our second mixer bought from here. Great quality, very sturdy and works like a beast in our bakery. Very good price that can't be beat. Would recommend!

James K. on 02/26/2018

If you don't have one of these in your kitchen you should change that. They do everything and the attachments are really easy to use and switch out.

Heidi G. from Deep Creek Coffee Co on 02/14/2018

Compared to most other brands, this Kitchenaid commercial mixer can not be beat when it comes to power and efficiency. If you're in the market, you will not regret getting one of these.

Travis F. from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe on 12/13/2017

The mixer is attractive, solidly made, and has a 1.3hp DC motor. Best of all, it not only can use KA attachments, but the beater, bowl, whip, beater, and bread hook, are NSF, dishwasher safe, and stainless steel! For small batches, the optional 5 quart bowl is a good addition.

James Y. from Shavetools LLC on 11/21/2017

Love the sleek onyx black color of this Kitchenaid Mixer! It works great and is huge so you can make many loaves of bread, batches of cookies, etc with ease.

Ashley R. on 11/04/2017

This product is excellent and works very well on multiple heavy batters like fruit cakes and hot cross buns. The only thing I would change is that the grid be able to detach to allow for a better cleaning

Leslie F. from Lezlee's Cakery on 05/20/2017

If I could give this mixer 10 stars I would, I love working with it on all my bakes. The motor is not loud and it mixes all the way to the bottom of the bowl.

Lawanda K. from Q-Zeens LLC on 04/18/2017

Absolutely terrific mixer here. From the best name in mixers comes an awesome commercial quality blender with a solid construction and beautiful design for any countertop.

Craig C. on 03/04/2017

This is the 3rd Kitchenaid stand mixer I have owned. I swear by these mixers. This one takes the cake-no pun intended! I can easily make a triple batch of my famous chocolate chunk cookies or double a cake batter. I make pasta yesterday and the motor had no problems with the long process!

Stacy L. on 02/24/2017


Nicole N. from NICOLE NIXON on 12/09/2016

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!

Marie B. from Bella Cuginas on 10/19/2016

Best price, greatest commercial 8 quart mixer. Love the black its so sharp. Sturdy durable and easy to use and store- the bowls also stack awesome into each other!

Diane W. on 09/07/2016

I loooovvveeee this mixer. As someone who bakes for a living, only having the Artisan was a struggle. Not only is it big, but powerful. It's not as loud as the Artisan too. So far, I have been able to bake 2- 3 layer 9" cakes comfortably, with extra room to spare for more batter. Buy this now!

Shana E. on 03/08/2016

I love to use this kitchen aid mixer to make large batch of butter cream or cookies. I personally do not like to knead my bread dough in it. I feel like I can burn its engine mixing 1 lb of bread dough

My H. on 10/01/2015

Just got this KitchenAid mixer today, my first project was making buttermilk biscuits. I've used a smaller KitchenAid mixer for years, and it limited me to making one batch at a time, which makes 12 biscuits. I was able to quadruple the recipe with the 8 quart bowl on this mixer, which is enough dough for 48+ biscuits. A major time saver, the mixer worked perfectly. I'm very pleased, Thank You Webstaurantstore for shipping quick.

Teddy D. on 07/16/2015

One of the best purchases I've ever made. This mixer is very powerful, yet surprisingly quiet - perfect even for home use. I had a 5 qt. mixer before this one and I always felt the need for more capacity. 8 qt. is just what i needed. Stainless bowl, hook, and other parts are durable and easy to clean. Very happy with the purchase.

Victor S. on 06/15/2015

I love this mixer. It's amazing. It's so quiet and I love that it's not loud. I really have nothing negative to say about this machine. It's amazing and worth every penny!!!

Theresa T. from Cupcake Cafe on 06/03/2015

This is one of the best purchases I have ever made. The mixer is powerful, quiet and runs like a dream. I have owned other KitchenAid mixers in the past but nothing compares to this mixer, nothing! I have no problems making triple batches of American style buttercream icing, Royal icing, cakes and other pastry items. My old 6 QT Professional KitchenAid would be so loud that I could not hear the door bell ring and it shook the mixing stand, the 8 QT Commercial is silent and vibrates very little. I am so pleased with this upgrade and I can use all my bowls and accessories from by old 6 QT!

Doug S. from Joyce K Sasse NP PC on 10/03/2014

Amazing deal on a workhorse of a mixer! KitchenAid is the number one go-to in table top mixers for home and commercial use. Bread dough, icings, cookies, and cakes - this one tool does it all with muscle and style!

Dana J. from Sugar Cubed on 05/28/2014

This KitchenAid 8 Qt. Mixer is the best it truly live up to it name. I wish I brought this along time ago. I recommend it and this is a great price for an awesome product.

Charlene H. from T & C Catering Services on 05/01/2014

This mixer is great! The eight quart bowl allows you to make large batches of tiramasu and cheesecake without having to make fifty pounds worth! Works great!
