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.

I love my mixer, but it is very bulky and difficult to store. I would only recommend this if you have either counter space or plenty of storage area!

I bought this mixer because I needed something heavy duty to make breads and tortillas. I works great for both. My daughter dropped it and the only thing we had to replace was the outer silver band. Thank heavens for well built kitchen appliances!

I won this mixer and it has been the best thing ever! I actually have a hard time with my hands and this takes over where my hands cannot! It is quiet and quickly mixes. Everything is actually mixed better then with a hand mixer. Cookies, pies, and bread are all amazing!! Pizza crust is even great!! It makes making things so much quicker and easy. Clean up isn't bad and I can guarantee you won't be disappointed!! There are so many possibilities to make with this mixer! I am so grateful to kitchen aid to make such a wonderful mixer!! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!!

    This is the only mixer i have found that can handle my Grandma's Peanut Butter cookies because the dough is so thick, before i got this mixer i was kneeding them by hand to get all the ingredients mixed together, Best Mixer on the Market, very Powerful!!!

    I love this mixer! I make icing with it weekly and it does the job perfectly! Just make sure you clean your mixer stand quickly after mixing so the food doesn't stick to your mixer!

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

    I am an at home baker. I often receive orders from friends and family for special occasions. I love the fact that I can mix my peanut butter ball filling with this, when I had a regular mixer I had to mix by hand because the mixer was not powerful enough to mix the ingredients once they started to become stiff. I make approximately 30 from scratch cakes a year and countless amounts of candies and other deserts. I would be lost with out my kitchen aid mixer. The attractive color makes it nicer to have setting on my counter top for days on end when the holidays come around,

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

      I absolutely love my KitchenAid Pro 500 Series Stand Mixer! I have a friend who has this mixer, and she would always rave about how much she loves her heavy duty Kitchen Aid mixer. So when I visited her at her house she insisted I see it, and I loved it too so I had to buy my own for my house. Before this one I had a cheap off brand mixer, but this one is so much better and definitely worth the investment! It makes baking my favorite goodies so easy, it is so quick to mix the ingredients I use and the consistency turns out very good anD the end product is extremely smooth. Try getting that out of a low-end mixer! :) I give this mixer 5 stars and recommend it to anyone and everyone. You get what you pay for, this will not disappoint!

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

        Besides being a little on the heavy side which isn't even enough to make it a con I wouldn't complain about any of it. I bake a lot and am able to make huge batches at a time. It handles bread dough well even in large portions and it does not drag down when trying to need the dough.

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

        Don't think twice, this mixer is for everyone. I live it especially around the holidays when I can making batches if cookies. I love that it is hands free so that i can do other steps while one batch is mixing. I wish the would offer a second bowl to purchase as things could really get going on the process of baking then. I love the ease of cleaning the mixer as everything wipes down easily. The choices of colors from bright red to green really allows you to personalize your countertop! The mixer is heavy, so i keep it on top of the counter all of the time. But its that heavy that makes it sturdy, quiet, and performing well even with the thickest batters. I love using mine to make meringue as it whips up the egg whites so perfectly. I also use it anytime I'm making quiches or omelets too. I still have yet to buy an attachment for the mixer, like the shredder or pasta maker, mostly because they run almost 100. Extra. I would like to see more attachment products like a cookie drop former. What if we could just load up a cup attachment that made drop cookies! Overall I love my mixer and recommendation it for every grandma, new bride, single lady, and gourmet chef.
