Kitchenaid Professional 600 Stand Mixer Review

kitchenaid-professional-600-mixer-reviewThe Kitchenaid Professional 600 Mixer is one of the most powerful in the range of Kitchenaid stand mixers and it is also one of the more popular.

With an impressive array of colors this is one stand mixer that will definitely look the part in any kitchen.

Read on to see what we like and don’t like about the Kitchenaid Professional 600 Mixer.

What You Get

  • The mixer…well of course!
  • Professional Wire Whip
  • Burnished Flat Beater
  • Wide Chute Pouring Shield
  • 6qt Stainless Steel Bowl with Handle
  • Burnished Power Knead Spiral Hook

What We Like

  • The Kitchenaid Professional 600 Mixer easily gets through even the heaviest of mixes including bread dough.
  • The 10 speed setting means that you have greater control especially for delicate foods.
  • This mixer has a massive 14 flour cup capacity – this is the equivalent of 8 loaves of white bread, 13 dozen cookies or 8 pounds of mashed potatoes.
  • The PowerKnead attachment replicates the same action as hand kneading so is perfect for those who love to bake their own bread.
  • The commercial style motor ensures that this mixer will take a beating (no pun intended).
  • It also looks good with its polished stainless steel bowl and with the choice of 11 different colors this will suit any kitchen.
  • We love the soft start feature. This means that when you turn it on your ingredients don’t get scattered all over the kitchen.

What We Don’t Like

  • This is a solid mixer so that means that it is heavy. If you are going to be lifting it in and out of a kitchen cupboard on a regular basis you will need strong muscles. The alternative is to leave it on the kitchen counter but you will obviously need the space.
  • When on high speed this mixer can get a little noisy. However, I doubt this would be much different with most stand mixers on the market.

Our Recommendation

If you do a lot of baking then the Kithenaid Professional 600 Mixer is a must have and especially so if you bake a lot of bread. This is one mixer we definitely recommend.

Where Can You Get the Best Price

We found the best price at Amazon.com, however Cooking.com charge an extra $20 but offer a $50 rebate that is claimable directly from KitchenAid until 31 st December 09.

Oprahs Favorite Cookware KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer

oprah-winfreyLike all of us,  Oprah Winfrey has a couple of  favorite pieces of kitchenware.

One of these pieces it the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer which is available in wide range of beautiful colors including this  radiant tangerine.

In comparison to their previous 4.5-qt model, this mixer  is larger in capacity and combines a 325-watt motor with a heavy duty transmission that provides constant power even when mixing heavy bread dough.

The polished stainless steel bowl is  conveniently sized to hold large batches of  mixture,  and with its wide open design it easily accommodates the beater once the tilt-back head is lowered into position.

The handle on the bowl is ergonomically designed and contoured to fit the hand, facilitating lifting and pouring. Like the other models, this one, too, features KitchenAid’s unique mixing action – the beater moves clockwise while the shaft moves counterclockwise, enabling the beater to reach every area as it mixes.

It features 10 speeds from a very high to a very low stir. Included with your new stand mixer is a clear, two-piece pouring shield that fits around the top of the bowl, preventing splashes. A large chute lets you add ingredients along the way. Accessories include a Wire Whip, Flat Beater and Dough Hook for versatility. The rugged, durable, all-metal construction promises many years of dependability, quiet operation, and cooking and baking bliss.
