KitchenAid truly is an Aid in the Kitchen
Over eight years ago I talked my husband into buying me the Classic Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer from KitchenAid. I wanted the bowl lift mixer instead but given the huge price difference he talked me into going with the tilt-head model. He honestly thought I would never use it and it would just sit on the shelf collecting dust. Well needless to say I proved him wrong. I have used my mixer for everything from making breads, doughs, mixes, eggs, frosting's and so much more. I have even gotten several of the extra attachments which really make the mixer so versatile. I can not say enough good things about my Classic KitchenAid mixer but I had noticed that from the beginning when making doughs and breads the motor seemed to make a sound like it was bogged down. For everything else it was perfect. So after eight years of using the Classic my husband bought me the KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer. I am having so much fun using it. It is quite a bit bigger than my old mixer and has a lot more power. Now when I make breads the motor does not seem to be bothered. Below I have included pics and information on both my new and old mixers.
A little about my New Mixer
My new mixer is a KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer. I have used it for almost two months now and am really enjoying it.
Here are some details from the Kitchenaid site:
The Professional 600™Series 6-Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer is perfect for heavy, dense mixtures. Burnished metal flat beater, PowerKnead™ Spiral Dough Hook and 6-wire whisk will help you mix, knead and whip ingredients into culinary masterpieces quickly and easily. And for even more versatility, the power hub fits optional attachments from food grinders to pasta makers and more.
My Old Mixer next to my New Mixer
I could not believe how much bigger my new mixer was compared to the old one. It was one of those times where it did not look that big in the store on the shelf. But when I got it home it was quite larger than I had thought.
Old Attachments next to New Attachments
It stands to reason that if the new mixer is bigger the attachments will be also. You can see in the photo how much bigger each attachment is compared to the older attachment.
A little about my old mixer
My old mixer was a Classic Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer. I had used it for almost 8 years when I upgraded.
Here is some details from the Kitchenaid site:
The KitchenAid® Classic Series Tilt-Head Stand Mixer is for your standard recipes. The 4.5-quart stainless steel mixing bowl and 10 speeds easily mixes, kneads and whips your favorite ingredients. For even more versatility, the power hub is designed to use the motor’s power to operate optional attachments from food grinders to pasta makers and more.
