Summary

Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Kneads, Mixes, Froths

Make bakery-worthy treats quickly and easily with the Kitchenaid Ultra Power Stand Mixer. One of the secrets to beautifully-baked goods is the consistency of the batter. Poorly mixed ingredients and chunks can be disastrous. This pro mixer helps you achieve a creamy, oven-ready consistency. It is also designed to mix, froth and knead anything you wish, from bread to decadent cakes. You can set it to one of the three mixing modes and choose out of the ten speeds available, customizing it to whatever you're making.

The Kitchenaid Stand Mixer is designed to be an expert in the kitchen. It runs on a powerful motor, is made of stainless steel and allows up to five quartz of batter. This means it's powerful and fast, which means it'll get you out of the kitchen sooner. It also lets you mix generous amounts and when you're done, you can either throw it in the dishwasher or wipe it clean.

      Comments about KitchenAid Pro 500 Series Stand Mixer - Empire Red:

      This mixer was purchased in 2015 and outstood the one year of continuous use until I had to sell it in 2016. It still worked wonderfully, and the attachments lasted as well. The mixer evenly blended everything very well. Switching to attachments was a breeze. I was gifted a meat grinder, which I only used one time and it was a simple process, although cleaning meat out of the holes was a pain. The blender itself was a beauty, the red really popped in my kitchen. The paddle attachment was used quite often although the whisk saw more use. Both were easy to put on just push and turn, same process with removing. I would recommend this blender, it saves time, looks great and I received many compliments!

      Comments about KitchenAid Pro 500 Series Stand Mixer - Empire Red:

      You can get attachments to make pasta or sausage if that's your thing. We make mashed potatoes in it and people go crazy for them. I heat up milk and add it to the mixer with cooked potatoes, sour cream and butter.

      Also great for cakes and desserts of course!

      Speed seems to have declined over time and the little button type thing is always falling off. However it's still the standard for serious home cooks.

      This mixer is a must have in every kitchen.
      I can't live without my kitchen aid mixer especially when making cookies and cakes. Its like having an extra pair of hands.
      Most of my recipes require me to pour two things at once which i wouldn't be able to do with a hand mixer.

      Comments about KitchenAid Pro 500 Series Stand Mixer - Empire Red:

      From the time I was discharged from the Army, where as a cook we used industrial mixers, I have wanted a kitchen aide. I waited thirteen years to get it and was absolutely thrilled to get it. It sits comfortably on the kitchen counter and I love using it whenever I get the chance. It comes with attachments for almost anything. I've used mine with the homemade ice cream attachment. Melted my heart. I would suggest to anyone that enjoys baking and cooking to invest in one. It might be more expensive then most, but after buying multiple mixers that all broke and realizing after buying my kitchen aide I had wasted a lot of money on the cheaper version. Skip the cheap ones you think will compare and you'll save more in the long run.
