KitchenAid KSM6521XSR Professional 6500 Design Series Sugar Pearl Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer, PRO 6500 – vs. – OLDER PRO 600 —- A SIDE BY SIDE TEST AND IMPRESSIONS

Does everything and as much as we loved our previous kitchenaid this one does circles around the old one.

Have had one for over 16 years and it’s going strong. Bought this one for my daughter and she loves it, especially the glass bowl.

This is an upgrade from the professional 600 lift bowl 6 quart kitchenaid i recently gifted to my neighbor who bakes often. I read some reviews that compelled me to pump the brakes on purchasing online. I will say not sure what mixers others were using prior to this purchase but this unit is far superior to the standard kitchenaid pro with the ac motor. This unit has already been tested. Very quiet, durable and looks and feels luxurious:))) for a mixer that is. The color is that of a white cultured pearl. I was pleasantly surprised that i also received the flex edge beater in addition to flat beater, whip, and dough hook. The glass bowl is heavy but you wouldn’t want a flimsy glass when working with a 1hp motor. I also found this seller gourmet kitchen online and purchased the stainless steel bowl separately.

“Wow! Don’t Settle For Anything Less! For Bread Making, This Kitchen Aid Professional 6500 Stand Mixer Is What You Want!
, PRO 6500 – vs. – OLDER PRO 600 —- A SIDE BY SIDE TEST AND IMPRESSIONS

The best feature is the heavy duty1 hp motor. I loveeee my new kitchenaid professional 6500 mixer.

Overall it is fine; but the glass bowl is an issue. It is heavy and cumbersome to fit. Also the beaters are not close enough to the bowl, leaving material unmixed. The bowl has all the characteristics of something thought up by a designer which was never fully tested. Sure, it is very pretty but not functional. Get a stainless steel bowl; works much better and weighs a lot less.

Arrived right on time in a big box. Looks nice, we just didnt realize the bowl was so big. Caution: if you are not sure how big six quarts is, make sure you know before you order this.

How did i ever get along without this mixer?is it big?. Yesbut if you are like me and have done your homework, you knew that already. I’m no pastry chef but i do enjoy baking and experimenting with recipes. I also enjoy guns and target shooting but i digress. This mixer lives up to the hype. The dc motor is super quiet and powerful enough to mix concrete. Seriously though if you are looking for a great mixer and don’t mind spending a few bucks, grab this one. Holidays are just around the corner. Btw this model included the ‘flex edge’ beater and it cleans the sides of the glass bowl very well.

Great mixer for bread and heavy dough.

 works great, fit as my daughter and mom found out turn the speed down before starting lol. My daughter got sugar everywhereall in all it works good i have no problems with it. My mom who is 68 has some problems with getting the bowl to clip in/out, but it’s easy to fix. Just unscrew the lock clip and give it a small bend and it will slide in early. It’s helpful for older people. Also it is oily when you get a new one, so clean it well but it only takes 10min to clean up.

A substantive change of motor – more quiet – standard glass bowl – but fewer color optionsthis is a newer version of the 6 qt professional line that changes the motor from the previous ac 575 watt (in the older 600 kp26m1x) to the newer version with dc motor 1hp (6500 ksm6521). I will give a little more detail below, but you will notice the power is not a direct comparison as the older is in wattage and the newer 6500 shown on this page is in horse power. However, the company claims the newer is more powerful and i can confirm it at least feels more efficient and substantial while also being more quiet. The body is essentially the same as most 26 series so some aspects are interchangeable. Here are some key differences and impressions as i tested them side by side: — the motor on the newer 6500 is much more quiet yet substantial feeling. The 6500 is almost more quiet on speed 10 than the 600 is on setting 1. I did at least get the feeling the 6500 was either more powerful in general or better at delivering torque. It sounded smoother and less whiney or rickety than the 600. That is not to say there is a problem with the 600. I understand some old issues have been fixes many years back. I felt the 6500 was more capable of handling heavier dough than the other machine. However, this has only been on the market since around the start of 2014 so the longevity of the machine is still being decided. — the bowls are interchangeable between the glass and the standard metal.

I have a 5qt and needed the add’l capacity. I like how quiet it is; i’d say it’s quieter than my 5qt. The bowl can be hard to snap in to place, and parts “jiggle” a little more than i’m comfortable with, but it’s held up this far.

My wife loves it,she has never had a stand alone mixer before,got the slicer attachments also,very nice.

Love this mixer and the color. Love the bowl lift and the plastic cover that keeps it clean. Powerful and pretty on my counter.

I purchased the kitchenaid 600 pro for my parents. I have since purchased a kitchenaid 6 qt 6500 mixer and have noticed the differences between the two and it all comes down to power, noise and price. Kitchenaid 6500-the 600 produces a lot more noise than the 6500 but let’s be honest, it’s a mixer, it’s not supposed to be silent. -the motor of the 600 mixer has 575 watts whereas the 6500 mixer has a 1. 3 hp motor (which equals out to about 1100 watts). So yes, the 6500 is a lot more powerful and i can say that with complete confidence, having used both within a week of each other. -the 600 comes with a stainless steel bowl and mixer parts that must be used only with the stainless steel bowl.The glass bowl and it’s attachment pieces (meaning the dough hook, etc.

Purchased as a gift for my wife (who does not do all the cooking, but does do all the baking) after she got very jealous of the ones her daughters owned.

First one i ordered made a weird whistle sound. I called customer service and they sent me a new one and it is work awesome.

Wish it was easier to get the bowl on and off.

Can’t say enough good about this mixer. The bowl is heavy to pour , but you can do several batches at a time. A real timesaver when you have a lot to do.

I use it primarily for baking and doughs – heavy doughs – which it gets through without even heating up. Wish i had another bowl, perhaps a metal bowl, for kitchen efficiency.

I wanted to write this review to help other new buyers. This is a good mixer and it isn’t overly loud. It does however tend to make certainly clicking type noise from the dual planetary gear sets, that is normal. This machine also has i believe a different motor than the xca model number that kitchenaid lists (they do not even list this pca model at all). The model kitchenaid sells direct at a significantly higher price has the new upgraded 1. 3hp motor also found on their commercially rated/certified top end mixer, this one does not and has 1hp which is plenty enough for the tasks we have tried including making a double batch of bread every couple of days (we just put the ingredients in and it pretty well cleans up the bowl and leaves us a well kneaded dough on the hook) as well as plenty of heavy cookie dough. The following is intended to provide peace of mind and to prevent the odd ‘friday just before quitting time’ machine from causing somebody injury or distress. Important: the quality control may have missed small metal burs that you should try to remove before using the mixer with either or both of the following steps:1: if you’re brave, the top cover comes off (unplug first) with the single screw at the back and then four on the sides. The gear housing cover takes two small star/torx screws and then you can examine the gears for proper grease and any metal pieces or burrs. If you are going to take this step to insure you get your monies worth inspect all around inside for any metal shavings that might migrate to the circuit board and short something out etc.

Sooo excited to have it and was really pleased with how quiet it is. Totally looking forward to making gingerbread dough and royal icing for gingerbread houses this christmas.

I have mixed feelings on this mixer. . Great machine as far as the power. The paddles seem that they do not get the bottom of the bowl mixed well at all. You have to keep lifting the bottom ingredients up. I made a creamy pie the first day and it did a terrible job mixing. I make a lot of frosting for cakes, so i bumped it to the powerful model. I had the smaller mixer for years.

I simply don’t know where to begin here as there are so many things that i simply adore about this kitchen aid professional 6500 stand mixer. For one thing, this is a relatively quiet, ruggedly built, beautifully finished and high quality frosted pearl white mixer which mixes and kneads bread dough seemingly effortlessly. In fact, when working with bread dough, you wouldn’t want to use anything less than the kitchen aid professional 6500 stand mixer. Since i received this mixer about a week ago, i have been working with 2 bread loaves at a time thus far (small family), but kitchen aid clearly states on the owner’s manual that this particular mixer is designed to mix and knead up to 8 loaves at a time. Well, i can certainly believe it as this kitchen aid professional 6500 stand mixer is equipped with a 1. 4 hp output will easily make short work out of anything that you could think of.

I purchased this after owning two other (tilt-head) kitchen aid stand mixers. I loved them, but needed a bit more volume and power for when i make christmas cookies. I specifically purchased this one because of the dc motor. With my old ones, when the mixture got thicker i had to increase the speed just to maintain the same speed as it bogged down. With this one it just continues on with so much torque that you don’t need to change the speed (unless you actually want it to go faster). Pros:way more power than the smaller models. Has a lid for the bowl with a recess in the top that the head fits into, so no dust gets in it when it is stored. Glass bowl, very heavy, very solid, you can see what is being mixed and if you need to scrape the sides. Way more solid than the smaller ones (which are already really solid). Much quieter (i believe because of the dc motor)cons:there is a lot less room to work under the head than one where the head tilts away.

KitchenAid 9-Speed Digital Display Hand Mixer Empire Beautiful – With : I am thoroughly satisfied with the product and would readily recommend it for

We mixed icing for 10,000 st joseph cookies and it was fast, powerful and met my expectation.

Works great, lightweight and several speed controls. I just with it had a container/holder to put it in for convenience of storing.

This hand mixer is super powerful, and unless you’re doing a serious amount of baking and mixing, this is probably all you need. And it takes up much less space.

This is an awesome hand mixer. I love every kitchenaid product i own, including my commercial capacity stand mixer.

  • The wife’s chocolate cake
  • Perfect Handheld Mixer
  • hand mixer

KitchenAid 9-Speed Digital Display Hand Mixer Empire Beautiful Red – With (Free Dough hooks, whisk, milk shake liquid blender rod attachment and accessory bag).

The first thing made with the new kitchenaid mixer was a chocolate cake that has not been made in ten years. My wife said that it was so light and powerful that it was a breeze to use. Latter that day a double batch of toll house cookies can out of the mixing bowl. It’ll take an extra hour each day for a week at the gym to lose the ten pounds gained from the first days use of the mixer.

Easy to handle, easy to use. Great addition to my kitchen appliance collection. Great for removing lumps from diet shakes and mixing any single servings of eggnog, cocoa and more. However, it also mixes larger batches of banana bread, pumpkin pie filling, crepe batter, and carrot cake batter just to mention a few. I’d buy it again (as if i’d ever need to. . I have full confidence in the kitchenaid brand).

She is really happy with the look and feel of it. She also was impressed with all the included accessories. She has only used it a couple of times and was happy with the way it worked.

Costs more than others but you get what you pay for. Excellent product with great features and attachments.

This hand mixer is everything kitchenaid said it would be. I am thoroughly satisfied with the product and would readily recommend it for anyone who loves to cook.

Love the 9 speed mixer- has alot of speed and really quiet – works very good for all jobs that i do.

A good product that is robust, works great with many attachments that work great. Much power for most applications (it is a hand held after all).

I have always been a big fan of kitchenaid. The stand mixer that i use for most of my baking-mixing, is over 55 years old. My mother purchased it at an auction when she was pregnant with my older brother. Still runs like new and it has been well used. I wanted a hand mixer for some of the smaller/quick jobs and this one is a winner. Love the attachments and the unit has enough power to mix just about everything i throw at it.

I finally had to break down and get a new hand mixer when my ancient one died. I decided that this time i would get the one i really wanted. Kitchenaid is a reliable company and my new mixer works wonderfully. This 9 speed comes with the extra accessories, which is a bonus for me since i’m an apartment dweller and lack space for a full size mixer.

This hot little number is great. All the attachments work well, snap in and out easily, and help make meals a breeze. All the attachments come in a bag so they all stay together neatly.

Like any kitchen aid product, it doesn’t get any better.

Works as advertised, i wasn’t sure about bag for attachments, but it’s fine.

KitchenAid K5THSBP Tilt-Head Mixer Bowl – Easier to use than the glass bowl that came with my Artisan KSM155GBCA

I bought this as a second bowl for my kitchenaid mixer, but it doesn’t fit as well as the original. The original and this replacement are made in different countries, one in korea, the other in india, so perhaps that is the discrepancy. The more i use this bowl, the better it seems to fit, but i usually try to use the original unless i have to use this one.

I am here to tell you that this does fit my kitchenaid ksm155gbca (ksm155gb is the model, the letters that come after gb are just different for each color). I also now see on one site that the bowl is compatible with models that start with ksm150ps, ksm152ps and ksm155gb. I had previously researched endlessly on forums, the kitchenaid site, and amazon reviews and could not find a definitive answer to whether this fits as an alternative to the glass bowl, but finally i just ordered it and yes it does fit. I’ve used it about 5-10 times and i have not even gone back to the glass bowl once. It’s just so much lighter and easier to wield, to pour out the mix, or to wash, and not worry about breaking etc. Of course you miss out on the nice ‘measuring bowl’ feature of seeing how much is in the glass bowl, and whether ingredients got mixed off the edge etc. , but if i had it all to do over i’d just order the mixer with the metal bowl. The glass bowl is more of a gimmick as far as i’m concerned now.

This is the perfect size for our 5 quart kitchenaid mixer. Its great having a mixer bowl with a handle it great for heavy baking. Here are the specifications for the KitchenAid K5THSBP Tilt-Head Mixer Bowl:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Polished stainless steel
  • 5-quart capacity
  • Ergonomic handle for easy use
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Fits KitchenAid stand mixer models: KSM150, KSM152, KSM155

Exactly as original that came with the ksm150 artisan mixer. Also includes a plastic cover with a depressed center enabling the bowl to be covered while sitting on the mixer with the head down and no attachments installed. Made in india stamped on bowl. Dishwasher safe top rack only, made in korea, and non sealing written on cover. The lid may say ‘non-sealing’ but it snaps on tight and i put about 2 cups of water in the bowl, snapped the lid on, and shook the whole thing upside down and not a single drop leaked out.

Works so much better than the glass bowl and is much lighter. You must scrub with steel wool before you use it for the first time. It seems to have some kind of coating on the inside of a new bowl. Also the splatter screen fits perfectly.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Booo:(
  • Needs a Good Cleaning Before Using
  • Easier to use than the glass bowl that came with my Artisan KitchenAid KSM155GBCA

I bought a new kitchen aid mixer that came with a glass bowl. I couldn’t stand the glass bowl. It was heavy and the bottom kept coming loose when i tried to remove it from the stand. I ordered this because my old kitchen aid mixer had this type of bowl. It’s so much better than the glass, and i don”t have to worry about breaking it.

I ordered one of these so i could have two instead of having to wash the one 1 i had immediately between cake batter & icing. I was surprised that it even came with a plastic lid.

Wanted one larger (5qt) than the one that originally came with my mixer (4. 5qt), & this is perfect, plus has a great comfy handle. Fits in the groove of mixer stand perfectly, too.

We bought this bowl in sept but didn’t get around to using it until after the refund policy for this vendor expired. Due to a manufacturing defect the bowl would not latch properly with the mixer. The vendor would not work with us but kitchenaide did, they gave me a new bowl due to factory defect. Seems to me the vendor could have communicated this to me rather than just denying my claim.

Love this bowel as it is easy to handle with the handle and lighter weight than the glass that came with the stand mixer.

Love this bowl it fits perfectly on my stand mixer and it was a great price. It was $40 now its listed over $90. I was going to order another one for my business and i guess i wont now that the price doubled.

Bought this after accidentally dropping and breaking the original glass bowl that came with my mixer – nice that i don’t have to worry about that with this metal bowl. I love that it comes with a cover (my glass bowl that came with the mixer didn’t). Wish it had the pour spout that the glass one did, but not a huge deal.

This stainless steel bowl is the way to go. My mixer came with a glass bowl and it broke shortly after receiving it. Go with the stainless steel from the get go. Easy to clean, it’s light and perfect for every step.

Very happy with this stainless steel bowl. I have a glass one which i like, but it is heavy and sometimes i worry that i will hit it on something and break it. So i got this stainless steel bowl so i have a spare, or a replacement if i break the glass one, or just want to have a lighter mixer bowl sometimes. It is very light weight in comparison, very easy attach and remove from the base. An extra bonus is that is comes with a plastic lid, which i didn’t know it would.

Purchased this bowl to help with my baking. I try to keep my oven filled while using it, so having another bowl handy is a plus.

My stand mixer came with the glass bowl and i needed the metal one for making swiss meringue buttercream frosting. I am not comfortable with heating or cooling the glass bowl so this metal one was perfect. I have a lot of recipes that require a stand mixer. Having two seperate bowls makes things easier, and faster if i am doing more than one recipe at a time.

I have a tilt head ksm158gbca mixer and needed a replacement bowl. Unfortunately, i dropped the glass bowl that originally came with the mixer while washing it. So after searching, reading all of the reviews, and asking questions online which was very helpful by the way in helping me decide to go ahead and order it. Just received it today and i’m happy to say that it fits perfectly. The bowl comes with a lid which is a bonus, it’s lightweight and shiny.

Nice having a 2nd bowl for my mixer. Came with a bowl cover that works for my cooky dough when it has to be refrigerated for an hour.

This fits my regular classic just fine. I got sick and tired of having to struggle to get the ‘handleless’ bowl off after mixing heavier doughs and batters. This is perfect to end that hassle. All of the bowls should be made with a handle.

I simply adore this stainless steel bowl for my kitchenmaid mixer. I found the glass bowl that originally comes with the mixer to be quite heavy when filled with batter and so on. This bowl however, is light and easy to maneuver when scraping batter out. Another amazing feature of this bowl is the built in rivets. I always struggled to lock my glass bowl into place, and struggled even further to unlock it without accidentally completely screwing off the bottom ring. Added bonus, if you are clumsy like me you don’t have to worry about shattering this bowl whilst cleaning it. Bottom line, i love this bowl and even purchased one for my sister-in-law.

Purchased this bowl to replace my glass one, which was heavy and the edge chipped. The only issue was i had to clean it really good several times to get the black stuff off the inside of the bowl. After trying few cleaning products, including white vinegar, i ended up using an sos pad on it, which did the job. Otherwise, the bowl has been great.

This beautiful kettle has truly spoiled me. Works perfect and boils water fast.Pricey though, but when you us it for a month or two you will not kick yourself in the butt as much for spending that much.

The best kettle you can find. Yes, it is expansive, but we enjoy it very much on a daily basis.

Latch either into the lid or missing. Had to spend 25 dollars to return it.

Comments from buyers

“Great customer service prompted this review.
, Unique appearance and works flawlessly.
, Amazingly Beautiful! You’ll love to look at this thing on your counter!

Was good value at the time that’s why it’s more special. Love the ‘bong’ it makes when ready.

Looks great and works pretty good. However, it seems a little slow at times and also wants to run at a boil continuously until i turn it off. I still love it and recommend it. Looks great next to my matching kitchenaid pour over coffee maker(also awesome).

I make many types of green and white tea which require different temperatures. This makes it easy to select proper temperature. Kettle is well balanced and the red is lovely in kitchen near mixer of same color.

This has been perfect for me. Water heats fast and temperature can be adjusted. No more finger in the cup to see if it is hot enough when using the microwave. Love the color it matches my toaster.

In november 16 2015 i bought kitchenaid kek1522ob kettle – onyx black pro line electric kettle and i left the country and came back this year (2018). I realised that the electrity voltage has gone higher (220v) in saudi arabia and i’m afraid that i can’t use the kettle because the kettle is said to need 110v. I have tried to use a voltage transformer before and it ruined my fridge so i’m not keen to try that again. I have been using amazon for a long time and its very helpful.

It was a gift to my mom, she in love with it thank you.

Best kettle we have ever owned.

Love my kitchenaid pro line. This kettle boils water super fast and i use it at least 4 times a day. Threw out the keurig and now just do simple pour-over coffee that rivals the artisanal coffee shops, great tea, boiling water to quickly sanitize dishes and i even use it to jumpstart a pot of boiling water for our pasta or steamer basket. The sound is small yet relevant and the style is always impeccable. I wish the pro line was easier in my pockets, but i don’t ever foresee a problem.

My kettle gets a lot of use, so it was super annoying when it stopped working after a scant 5 months. Up until it died, i really liked the kettle. The temperature settings were spot on. The double wall kept the exterior from getting scalding hot. The pour spout does a great job of not dribbling. And it looked good sitting on the counter. ‘yeah,’ you say, and then rightfully point out that it died after only 5 months.

It stays clean and looks great. It provides hot water very quickly. What more could you ask for?.

Very well made, attractive and efficient. I timed this kettle using the same amount of water on my gas range ( also kitchenaid ). The kettle beat the gas range by nearly a minute. I use it to prepare any and all drinks that use hot water, including pour-over coffee. It’s also great for heating water to blanch vegetables, or wilt spinach. Temperature control is simple and accurate. I like to buy kitchen appliances once, and be satisfied using them for a long time. Every kitchenaid product i have purchased has met those criteria and then some. Update: after six months of daily use, kettle still performing like new. And, no cancer or infertility from the plastic interior.

I got this because i wanted 90c water for my coffee, and i liked its analog temperature gauge. Set your temperature with the lever, then the heating stops right on the mark every time. This kettle has a very elegant chime (when you hear it, you’ll know what i mean) that sounds once when you turn it on, and once when it reaches temperature and shuts off–if you need an alarm you can hear from the other end of the house, this isn’t it. Note that this kettle is pretty big and holds a lot of water. If you really fill it up, it’s pretty heavy. Stays fairly cool on the outside so you don’t need to worry about brushing against it when reaching for something on the counter. We’ve been using this four or five times a day for a couple of months and can think of no complaints. If you’re ok with the price and like its vaguely steampunk look, you’re not apt to be disappointed.

I am simply in love with the, i think it looks better than the pictures, and work great, looks elegant in my kitchen.

It does exactly what it says it will and mine gets used every day.

Extremely pleased with my new kitchenaid kettle. Very quike to boil and really lovely to look at.

Super fast heating of your water for tea, french press coffee, hot chocolate, etc. A gift for my wife for mother’s day and she loves it. A friend has one and recommended it; good recommendation.

I don’t know how i went every day without this teapot. And backed by outstanding warranty.

Just began using this tea kettle. It heats the water very quickly. I make sure the water has been emptied and i leave the kettle top open to air dry. Kitchenaid has a great warranty (5 years). I am hoping i have as good a product as my kitchenaid mixers.

I love my new kettleok, so robosolo did a wonderful review that i agree totally with. I just had to give this my 5 star rating and add a couple details. The kettle makes this soft ‘bong’ when you plug it in, when you turn it on to heat and when it is at the required temperature. The heater turns off once it is at the requested temperature. When heated to 80 degrees celsius, it takes about 10 minutes before the temperature drops noticeably. I haven’t noticed any pre-drip when pouring and i’ve gone through a full kettle of water since i opened my box earlier today. I will update my review after a couple months. (oh and this thing is beautiful, like a shiny apple.

Plastic liner should be stainless, but ok.

I purchased this for my wife for christmas. It’s a great way for her to make hot chocolate faster than having to use the keurig coffee maker.

Comments from buyers

“Really Big Feeding Tube
, The quiet is what amazed me. Wish it came with a storage case
, bigger than I want

Absolutely handles the bigger jobs in the kitchen and the 3 sizes of chute is an answer to prayers.

I should have paid more attention when purchasing, but was very excited to get it on sale for prime day. I can’t tell you if it works well or not yet because we have not lugged it out of the cabinet we finally were able to make space in for this industrial sized food processor. If you are looking to process your food in bulk, look no further.

Exactly what i expected and more.

Haven’t used this much yet, but when i did it worked very well.

Updated review january 10, 2016i’ve down graded the kitchenaid 13-cup food processor to a three star rating. The reason being is the variable slice feature does not work well. The food slicer does not/ can not thinly slice potatoes or onions. I’ve tried several times to use the variable slice feature to do both. The reason why i like using a food processor is to do both. Updated review november 23, 2015tonight i used the kitchenaid food processor to chop up 1 1/2 pounds of beef. The food processor easily chopped up the beef and did not wimp out. The motor still produces an annoying whine, but it works. The rest of the review is below. I purchased the kitchenaid 13-cup food processor from amazon warehouse deals as my last cuisinart purchased in 2009 has never, ever worked right.

I wanted to give this a 5, but just couldn’t. It is big, but that is awesome when doing large amounts of things like shredding bulk cheese etc. Definitely don’t have to empty as often. I like that the blade sits firmly in the bottom so if you turn it upside down, it stays put until you pull it out. It runs quiet, yet seems to have good power. It has worked good on everything i have used it for so far. Now the things i don’t like. First off, the lid is fussy.

I’m a long time kitchen aid fan, so when my old kitchenaid food processor broke beyond repair, i trotted off to get a new kitchenaid – what else?. The capacity is great, but i don’t like the way that you have to press down on the food you’re processing in order to get the processor to work. I also wanted to use the small grating side of one of the discs to grate potatoes and onions, and it just plain old wouldn’t work. I had to use the other side, and the consistency of what i was making came out all wrong, along with the way that it baked and tasted. I’m a bit disappointed in this and with what it cost, that shouldn’t be the case. It does close and lock more easily than my older one, but i just don’t like it as much. And also, for the money that this cost, i’d have expected some kind of a container in which to keep the various attachments. Be careful when unpacking this also, because you’ll easily miss the attachments with which it comes, and that could be disastrous for the operation of the machine. All in all, until i can find a way for the small shredder disc to work, i’m not going to be terribly impressed with this kitchenaid product. I almost wish i’d gotten a smaller one that had less capacity, but better shredding capabilities as my old one had – hopefully.

Big and powerful and processes food very well. Only observation is this is mostly a plastic base, which for those of you with the heavier metal appliances from ka, may be disappointed. However, it makes for a much lighter device to carry around the kitchen which i appreciate.

Too many parts to clean; must use dishwasher.

I use it at least once a week sometimes more. It looks great sitting on my counter. It is quiet and powerful enough to cut through anything i’ve put through it.

Looking forward to using it.

Returned my cuisinart- feeding tube so small that there is no need for a food processor. This big mouth is huge, and is why i bought it. Difficult for me to figure out the food dicer system. And the mozzarella cheese balled up some underneath grate. But parts are sharp, system is a bit easier than cuisinart. Take care with plastic- don’t force, but is thick plastic. This 200$ machine is worth it to me.

I use this baby several times a week to make mayo and slice vegetables.

I bought it for grinding nuts for energy bars, which it does very well, and was happy that the slicing feature made slicing vegetables for a stir fry so fast and easy. The base of the appliance is heavy and the motor is strong. The bowl and parts are sturdy. You will need a dishwashing brush to get food from around the rim when washing. I recommend this food processor.

I can make more to store for later.

Well made, durable and huge, will shred an entire deboned chicken in seconds.

My wife absolutely loves it. She loves to cook and this makes it that much easier.

Why did i wait years to get this???.

Works well, holds quite a bit, quiet motor.

I love the capacity of this processor, it chops great. Only issue is when using the grater, large chunks of cheese, carrots, zucchini, etc. Get stuck in the lid and do not grate which stops the machine.

Looks great and versatile, but i haven’t used it yet. As another reviewer mentioned, it does not include a spatula although there is one on the box.

KitchenAid 9 and 12-Cup Food Processor French Fry Disc : Narrow french fries

Great for cutting french fries. Makes quick work of slicing the potatoes.

I thought this would fit my food processor, but it does not fit my model. I did not read the model numbers it fits, and mine was not included. Company was great to deal with.

I really like this french fry blade. It is a little different than i thought it would be, but it works great. It sure beats cutting fries by hand. There are so many different fry choices you can make with this blade.

Easy transaction, happy customer.

I primarily purchased this for fries but it does an excellent job on firm fruits and vegetables as well. The usual kitchenaid quality, of course.

KitchenAid 9 and 12-Cup Food Processor French Fry Disc : This is durable and fits my kitchen aide perfectly. I make perfect fries every time, no more chopping off the fingers lol.

I have the largest bowl they make. My feed tube is huge and it holds a large baking size potato. The slices have a slight curve to them which is fine with us.

I had all the slicing tools for my kitchen aid except this one. I wanted to make oven fries as i am trying to watch my weight. . Making french fires with this slicer is a breeze and the potatoes are cut uniformly and therefore they cook all at the same time. They are scrumptious to eat.

When i finally decided to purchase this after thinking about it for several months, there were only 2 reviews (both 2 stars) and i ignored them since the only specific complaint was that it makes stubby little fries if you don’t have the wide mouth feed tube. That makes sense, but i have a big mouth (on my food processor) and even if i didn’t, i wouldn’t completely mind stubby fries as long as i didn’t have to cut them myself. Inspecting the product, we noticed that the cutters are not uniform in width (see photo) and i was fearful that i might have to put up 3 stars and be somewhat saddened by the quality of the fry. Upon cutting my first russet with this disc, although the difference in widths of the fries was obvious (see photo), it wasn’t quite as bad as i feared – so i was thinking maybe 4 stars. However, after frying up several batches of fries for dinner, i realized that the difference in widths is not significant enough to cause problems in how they cooked. The fries came out cooked exactly how i would expect – some browner than others but none of them underdone or too crispy. So yes, the fries are different widths, but no, it doesn’t cause any problems. Oh, and this could’ve been a fluke, but the top was completely clear of potatoes when i was all done – that’s never happened when i’ve used other discs for potatoes. As for the quality and durability – it seems even sturdier than my other discs.

KitchenAid Professional 7-Quart Super Big Biggest Capacity Large KSM7581MS 7-Quart Bowl Largest Lift Stand Mixer Medallion, It is great for those large recipes that just don’t fit in

We love the mixer the only issue which not a big one is the height of the mixer its self. Make sure it will fit under your top cabinets. Otherwise it works amazing and is easy to clean up.

I really am enjoying this mixer. It is great for those large recipes that just don’t fit in a smaller mixing bowl.

Bought this model in june 2013; i opened the box and set up the machine. Did not use it until 7 months later. I put all the ingredients in bowl for sugar cookies; the machine started up for about 15 seconds, it stopped, then i turned it on again and it was dead. I unplugged and restarted again and it did not start. Husband checked to make sure i was using it as specified in the enclosed booklet. I was very upset because i paid over $600. With tax, did not have the receipt to prove to ka that this machine was dead (not working), gave cs the model # and she found the purchase date and price $ i paid for it. They stated that i would be receiving a replacement in 6 weeks, i did. Packed the unusable one in the box and fed ex picked it up for return to ka, no cost to me.

“As Good As It Gets For Home Cooks
, We love the mixer the only issue which not a big
, It is great for those large recipes that just don’t fit in

I have owned this for a couple of years now and love its power and capacity. But, the paddle attachment that comes with the unit does not reach the bottom of the bowl, so i constantly have to scrap down the bowl. Some scraping would be expected, but this is a problem for me. I’m going to search to see if there is a paddle with a rubber edge like i have on my other, smaller kitchen aid (top lift) which i also love, but it was not large enough for me. Overall, though, you cannot beat (ha, ha) this mixer and i consider it an essential kitchen appliance for all home cooks.

Love the product great service.

Works very well, took a little while to figure out how to attach bowl.

My wife is a gourmet home cook and baker. As a gift, she specifically requested the kitchenaid 7-quart mixer to replace her aging kitchenaid 5-quart mixer. Needless to say, she was very pleased when i paid attention and bought it for her. She loves its large capacity, especially when it comes to baking batches of special treats for her friends and co-workers. Also, she’s commented how quiet it is and how she can run it continuously without it heating up. She’s very happy, and i’m happy she’s happy.

KitchenAid KPRA Pasta Roller and cutter, Works well, but use different pasta recipe

Maybe i didn’t read enough before purchasing, but my wife was surprised when she opened this up and used it that it doesn’t even really use the mixer like most attachments do. Works okay, but i would not have paid what i did if i would have realized it was hand powered.

I bought the kitchenaid pasta roller and cutter set early in our gluten free adventure. Like most kids, mine loved pasta and the premade pastas at the time, not only tasted bad, but were expensive. So i thought i would try to make my own. Over the years, i have made gluten free pasta using this set and i absolutely love it. Both rolling and cutting my dough is so easy. I love that the roller and cutters attach right to my kitchenaid mixer because i don’t have to worry about turning a handle as i try to process my pasta dough. These tools are heavy duty and designed to last and last. Even though i live in a very humid and corrosive environment (close to the sea) i have never found any rust or corrosion on my equipment. Even after the mixing portion of my kitchenaid mixer fell apart, i kept the mixer unit so i could continue to use my pasta rollers. I love this set and am so glad i own it.

First, let me say that i have been making home made ravioli every new years of my adult life. First with my grandmother, then i personally took over the tradition about 20 years ago. I normally have eager (hungry) family and friends around waiting to jump in and help me prepare the new years eve meal. Well, with my grandmother in her 90’s, my parents not medically capable of standing on their feet for hours at a time now, i was facing new years eve meal preparation alone.The thought of doing all of that alone, struck fear in my heart. I did some research and found this attachment was available for the kitchenaid. So, a professional 600 series kitchenaid was ordered along with this attachment. Thank you amazon for your same day delivery service. Let me start out by saying that this review could have gone either way. Like many other reviewers, i was ready to throw this attachment in the garbage about halfway through my first attempted use.

Comments from buyers

“Like many other reviewers
, Works well, but use different pasta recipe
, Prepare to Be Amazed!

I was skeptical about how these would work after a disappointing ice cream freezer attachment, but they are worth every penny. I used to roll pasta either by hand or hand crank machine and couldn’t imagine these would be much different. They work so well i bought all the kitchenaid pasta attachments. The dough comes out leathery smooth and elastic with perfectly consistent results every time. This has taken my home chef pasta making to a whole other level. I even bought semolina flour because i felt my regular bread flour just wasn’t on par with the professional quality of this equipment. As i am not the most coordinated person, it also takes about 1/4 the time required to use the hand crank version. Fresh homemade pasta is now a weeknight dinner instead of an all day art project in my house. You have just got to try these to appreciate the efficiency and quality.

I have had the kitchen aid pasta attachment set for almost 2 years. It is fast and efficient – i can start cooking and serve homemade pasta within 40 minutes. I do not use the ravioli attachment – it is more time consuming and requires more precision in rolling noodles the right size maximize pasta and minimize mess – i may consider trying the ravioli attachment again in the future – but would recommend the 3-piece past set over the 5 or 6 piece set. There is not much difference between the two thinner noodle attachments or the two wider noodle attachments – so the 3 piece set is probably sufficient. I also have the pasta-extruder which is my preferred tool for spaghetti (further making the 5-6 piece pasta set overkill). The pasta extruder is great because you can do other things while the pasta is churning (2 hands not required). I find the extruder slower overall (but usually make 2 sets of noodles at a time). A pasta drying rack definitely helps. I use slightly different pasta recipes for the press and extruder. Unless your dead set on a ravioli maker, you can do just about everything with the 3 piece set and extruder (and save money).

So this is sort of a work in progress. Like many others here i lost about a half a batch of dough to metal flakes and oil rubbing off. As soon as i got through that the roller started making a huge screeching sound. Maybe it is not lubricated now – but this is loud enough that everyone in the house came by at least once to ask ‘should it be making that noise?’. It seems like there is also some ‘etching’ on the rollers, so maybe that is where the metal flakes came from. Anyway, contacting the company. Other than that however, watch some videos on youtube on what the dough should look like and stuff, that solved most of my problems. Also something on how to properly measure flour :)second night, doing the dough right worked like a charm with the roller and the cutter – aside from the squeeking it went really really well. If i can get an exchange i think i would end up being pretty happy.

Just see the picture result. Im so glad i got all d attachment of kitchenaid. Totally happy with everything.

I did not believe this could work, but it does. You have to be careful not to overload the hopper with filling, and it’s best to have a dough that isn’t too wet (sticky). But after a couple of failures for obvious reasons, i was amazed at how well it worked. I brushed a little water in the inside surface if the pasta, and i didn’t have a sloppy filling. Genuinely happily surprised.

Have been working with this and found that the following dough works great:(this is different from the standard kitchenaid recipe)10 oz all purpose flour2 large eggs (wt ~ 2 oz/egg)4 large egg yolks1 tsp kosher salt0-1 tblspn water (depends on humidity of kitchen -cold here in maine)mix in mixer the usual way (30 sec mix, 2-3 min with dough attachment)then knead for 2-3 minutesrest for 30 minutes-1 hourroll the dough on following settings:roll out on #1 with 3-4 folds (kneading)roll out on #2 with 3-4 folds (kneading)roll out on # 3roll out on #4run through ravioli makersprinkle with flour as neededfold in half and crease the fold. Remove hopper, insert folded end and give it a quarter turnlay the two ends open to each sidereplace hopperthen, slowly, turn the crank. Just be patient and be sure to knead the dough and let it rest before using this attachment.

KitchenAid KHB3581SR Pro Line Series Sugar Pearl 5-Speed Cordless Hand Blender : Awesome products lots of sturdy parts

This is one of my favorite tools in the kitchen.

Works great and is so nice to use without plugging it in. Also it comes with a storage case making it easier to pull out and put away.

KitchenAid KHB3581SR Pro Line Series Sugar Pearl Silver 5-Speed Cordless Hand Blender

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Sugar pearl silver with stainless steel arms and whisk
  • Crush ice, puree soup, froth milk and so much more
  • Features three interchangeable bell blades
  • Included whisk attachment whips creams and egg whites to fluffy peaks
  • Removable blending arm with fixed blade locks into the motor body

I have an older breville cordless with two wands and built in batteries that i had to replace because within two years the internal ones went out. This you can just pop a new one in. Whisking won’t tire out this old guys wrists anymore.

Massive amount of stuff comes with this purchase biy was i surprised.

Overall, it’s great and i like it a lot. Except for one thing — you have to take the battery out of the handle and put it into the charger instead of putting the handle in the charger.

KitchenAid KHB3581SR Pro Line Series Sugar Pearl Silver 5-Speed Cordless Hand Blender : Worked like a charm and not too heavy to handle when blending or mixing. It was easy to clean as well. I did have to learn to line up the arrows to secure the arm and blades, but that was easy.

Don’t know why i waited so long to get it. Makes kitchen time so much more efficient.

Had to return it it came without a battery charger. Other wise would have keep it.

Well, i’m not a gourmet cook – period. I think that, if i was, i would probably be really tickled with this kitchen tool. However, i’m a little more ‘seasoned’ cook, and i needed a quick tool to grab for mixing sauces, beating eggs, etc. This one was battery operated, and i was pretty pleased at the prospect of being able to expand the uses for this type of mixer. Turns out it’s big and it’s heavy and it’s a little cumbersome to operate one-handed. The controls are a little out of the way (to protect us from ourselves, i guess), and it takes some contortion of your fingers, while holding on with both hands, to get it turned on. Then the material in the bowl all goes flying around the kitchen. I’m just not gourmet enough to appreciate this tool.

Full disclosure: got this on major sale at williams & sonoma. So my review won’t reflect the price, just the quality. Tl;dr: for stirring and whisk work, this is an incredibly useful, though perhaps not vital, tool for a professional or serious chef. It’s a hard bite at $300, but it’s certainly worth it at that price point. The good: the packaging is a bit wanting; lids and parts are squirreled away in the non-recyclable styrofoam packing. A wag of the finger at kitchenaid, because there’s just no reason for not using sustainable or biodegradable packing components. It did, however, come with a very nice looking storage case with a clear plastic top and room for all the stirring attachments and the wand itself. Basically, the parts you’re most likely to use are always stored away in a fashion that makes them easy to access and keep track of. The parts of the wand that come in contact with food are made of stainless steel, improving their durability and preventing any contamination from ‘treated’ parts. Looking at the wand itself, the design is very clever; though they’re plastic, using multiple lugs reduces the wear on surfaces and makes it easier to attach or remove parts.

I’ve worked in restaurants for 30 years and therefore have a very small amount of cooking knowledge. It’s effortless, easy, smooth, and the liquid doesn’t jump around a lot. You can take it with you anywhere, i’ve made bulletproof coffee for the dude at the gas station and despite his misgivings about drinking butter, he actually liked it. I look forward to being able to make a smoothie any time i like in about a minute, the majority of that time spent deciding which frozen fruits to toss in the mixing cup. Even the charger is cool, how it glows on and off while charging. I’m having a hard time thinking of anything this blender can’t do that a motorized-base unit can.

It is a wonderful collection of kitchen tools.

Didn’t blend my soup as much as i thought it would. Might have been operator error.

This one can do the same, have more accessory and rechargeable. This is great, i have now just 1 tool in the galley to do everything.

KitchenAid KFC3100OB Chef Series 3- Cup Food Chopper – Cute little bugger

Only used once but so easy to clean. Made some chicken spread, liked the texture odthe meat, finely ground but not mushy. Unlike a different chopper with ridges in the chopping cup, this one is smooth so scraping out food is a snap and goes right in the dishwasher.

I’ve used this product for several years now and it still works very well. For smaller quantities it’s a great convenience not to have to use a full size food processor. Bowl, lid and blade all wash well in upper rack of my dishwasher.

I chop up peppers and onion and store them for quick egg white omlets for breakfast. Takes up very little room on my counter. I’m sure i’ll find lots of uses for it. Here are the specifications for the KitchenAid KFC3100OB Chef Series 3- Cup Food Chopper:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 3-cup work bowl ideal for small jobs and making sauces, dips, frostings
  • Reverse-spiral-action blade pulls food down for uniform chopping
  • Electronic pulse pad provides precise control; 240 watts
  • Wet and dry compartments on domed lid for adding flavorings
  • One-year “total replacement” warranty

I needed a new chopper for a long time and couldn’t turn this down when i saw it in the gold box deal. Makes cooking so much faster when i have a lot of chopping to do. I saw on some of the reviews that it quit working because the locks wouldn’t lock in, so it wouldn’t start. For that reason, i’ve been hand washing just to be extra careful. I find it easy to keep clean, tho, and have had no trouble with it at all.

I absolutely love this product it is so handy for mixing half a cup or a cup of pecans or whatever you’re chopping no big appliance to sit on your counter. I have had one for eight or nine years and decided to buy a second one just to have it on hand i would definitely recommend this to anybody that is chopping and grinding things for small amounts of food. It is so durable are use it at least two or three times a week i would highly recommend it to anyone.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Favorite durable #1
  • WELL WORTH THE PRICE!!!
  • Wife’s new toy and I enjoy all she makes

Works awesome and thank you so much.

Bought this for my mom before thanksgiving and she was unconvinced that she would need a machine to do something that she could do by hand. But the small size, ease of use and speed at which the chopper got things done convinced her otherwise. I like that the bowl has a handle – makes it easier to use compared to the old cuisinart i have at home which does not.

So far, i am very happy with this purchase. It holds a bigger quantity than my previous mini chopper and does a better job. I ordered the red model because it was a few cents cheaper and love the way it looks on my counter.

I had one for a few years now and used it all the time. Broke the blade through no fault of the chopper (accident) and that is the only reason i needed a new one. I didn’t hesitate to replace it right away.It’s just the right size for most recipes since i only cook for two. I would recommend this whole heartedly to anyone.

Went through two choppers, one tv brand broke after fourth use, black and decker broke after second use. I have had a kitchenaid mixer, my mother’s which is over 50 years old and it still works as if it is brand new. So i ordered the kitchenaid chopper, it should have been my first choice. Have a 3/4 acre garden, freeze green peppers, banana peppers, onions, etc and believe me i have really put my chopper to use. What a pleasure, what a great product, what was wrong with me not buying it first. I love it and it just keeps going and going and going. It is a kitchenaid what can i say except excellent.

I received my kitchenaid 3 cup processor yesterday. What a difference from the cuisinart. This kitchenaid processor right out of the box, is notably better quality, and after using it a few times, the kitchenaid works so much better than the cuisinart. Yes there is a difference in price, but it’s worth every penny of that difference in quality. I read a review that said well you can’t expect the little cuisinart mini to do what a big processor can do. I certainly do expect the mini processor to do what the big ones do. The kitchenaid 3 cup will do as well as the big processors.

I don’t use a food chopper much so i don’t need a huge one. Generally the others that i’ve owned have been large and heavy and obnoxious sitting on the countertop. This one is the perfect size. It’s perfect for chopping nuts for cookies, onion for a meal, etc. I love it, now to keep my daughter away from it.

Shipped quickly and arrived as expected. Bought this as a replacement to one we currently own. Major mishap with the plastic assembly on our old one made it unusable. This is invaluable to us in the kitchen. Good quality and great functionality.

This unit is a hummus machine from fresh dried garbanzo beans that we purchased on amazon as well. With some seasoning, we can rival the product offered an many restaurants as an appetizer in the dfw area. We are very please with the ease of operation, the speed of chopping and most importantly the ease of clean up. Many devices are not used because it takes longer to clean it than the time is saved in using it. This one is a gem and we use it multiple times a week without worry due to the warranty on the product. Thanks kitchenaid and amazon.

This is my second kitchenaid chopper. I gave the first to my daughter thinking it would be easy to replace. I finally found this one which was the same as the first, except this new one is red.

Takes up less space on counter. Hardly ever us my standard sized food processor any more.

After having a kitchenaid mini chopper for years, using it mainly for making pesto, chopping onions, and grinding nuts, the little locking tabs broke. I bought a different brand, because it was much cheaper. The first time i used it, i knew i had made a mistake. The blades just spun around, leaving the basil leaves unchopped, the pouring hole was too small, and oil spilled all over the counter. I returned the piece of junk (which had been ‘sponsored by food network)and went back to this tried and true, reliable piece of equipment. It is called a ‘chopper’ and kitchenaid has a full size processor if that’s what you need – but this is perfect for the smaller jobs, and makes an incredible homemade pesto in particular.

I have a full-sized food processor that works poorly, and this little number has saved me several times. It’s compact, easy to clean, and tears through most anything. I’ve used it to turn home-made oatmeal cookies into pie-crust and used it to bring together a pesto sauce. I also respect the company for going the extra mile and including a little spatula.

This is a very handy appliance for my kitchen and i love the red color. It is so easy to use and does a good job of cutting up vegetables, meat, nuts and any kind of food that is safe to use. I have used it for several years and really appreciate the help it gives me in preparing foods.

Great little processor with lots of power but the pulse button sticks so i will have to return it. Aside from this issue, it seems like a good little machine. I will chalk it up to a ‘defect’ and won’t be too harsh. I barely touched it and it slashed my finger.

So happy to have found the kitchenaid chopper. I love the one purchased several years ago and decided to find a future replacement. I received it right away and it is just as i hoped for.
