Equipped with a high-performance, professional-level motor, this multi-function stand mixer does it all -- mixing, whipping, kneading, everything from egg whites up to 14 cups of all-purpose flour per recipe (the mixer is capable of mixing ingredients for up to 8¼ 1-pound loaves of white bread, 13 dozen chocolate chip cookies, or 8 pounds of mashed potatoes). Ten mixing speeds allow you to stir, knead, mix, or whip at the velocity appropriate for the recipe; a soft start feature helps prevent ingredient splash-out and flour-puff by starting the mixer slowly before stepping up to the selected speed. Planetary mixing action eliminates the need to rotate the bowl and ensures quick, thorough mixing; this efficient mixing action spins the beater clockwise and the shaft counterclockwise, moving the beater to 67 different points within the bowl. Three styles of beaters provide you with the right tool for each job. The specially designed flat beater works with the planetary mixing action to thoroughly mix ingredients in every area of the bowl; the flat beater is ideal for mashing potatoes, mixing cakes, quick breads, and cookie dough. The professional design of the wire whip rapidly increases airflow into egg mixtures for stiff souffles and rigid peaks of meringue; with the planetary mixing action, the wire whip creates silky decorator icings and whips cream as light as air. The burnished powerful spiral dough hook replicates hand-kneading with a forceful punching and rolling action to knead thick, heavy doughs. The 6-quart stainless steel wide bowl with contoured handle accommodates large batches of heavy dough and thick batter. A pouring shield fits around the bowl and prevents ingredients from splashing out; a chute makes it convenient and easy to add ingredients while mixing. The professional bowl-lift design includes muscular metal arms for stable mixing and a comfortable bowl-lift lever which raises heavy ingredients into the mixing position. Durable di

Although there is just my husband and myself at home now, when we get together we are a family of 19 so many of our recipes are done in big batches. I did all my holiday baking (as well as mashing a huge quantity potatoes for Christmas dinner) with my new mixer and wished I had bought it years ago.
One of my big concerns when I made this purchase, was what color "pearl metallic" really was. I checked numerous blogs and websites (both Canadian and US, visited several local stores and couldn't find a clear description). I was completely happy when it arrived...pearl metallic is a soft medium grey color...very rich (similar to the dark peuter color)...with a nice (easy to clean) glossy sheen. The service from Amazon.ca was amazing as well. I placed my order late Thursday evening and the mixer arrived on Tuesday afternoon. It was shipped from Mississauga to Thunder Bay (1200 miles)....free shipping and delivered right to my front door.
I do think KitchenAid should rethink their decision to include the mixer blades and hooks that are NOT dishwasher proof with this model. I have purchased an extra paddle that IS dishwasher proof (another $35 on sale!!). I know it's just a matter of time before I accidentally load the whisk or blades in the dishwasher (they look like they should be dishwasher proof....but my daughter has this mixer as well.....and I know for certain they are NOT!!...expensive lesson!!).
We have processed various mixtures with the machine and have had great success. It can handle a relatively large cookie batter recipe with ease, and a 6 cup mixture of notoriously difficult to knead pasta dough was mixed with moderate loading on the motor. It does a fantastic job of kneading bread dough, again with the included dough hook. The beater attachment works very well for high speed frothing and mixing of icings and meringues. Mixing of a more dry, sticky recipe like those for granola bars caused a lot of the ingredients to gather on the paddle attachment, but we found the remedy for this to be a short burst at a higher speed to "clean" the paddle off. At times it seems a little weak in the lowest speed setting with really heavy mixes, but bumping it up one level seems to solve this problem and allow it to operate normally without excessive strain and noise.
The only part of the machine we could do without is the clear plastic bowl shield. We do not find a lot of use for a shield, as by controlling the speed one can avoid the messes of ingredients coming out of the bowl. We found it to be more of an inconvenience than useful, and the only time it is on the bowl is when the machine is not in use!
Aesthetically, it is very pleasing. The pearl metallic colour and its shape compliment our modern kitchen well. It appears robust in design, and there is no straining or flexing of the machine during loading or operation.
Overall, we view this machine as an excellent purchase and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The heavily discounted price at Amazon makes it a much more worthy purchase than some of other Kitchenaid models that look great but fall short in the motor and bowl size area, yet still cost as much as the this unit in a store. Happy mixing!
