Nevertheless, it would only be fair to continue this review with a list of the mixer’s pros and cons. Let’s see what makes this mixer indispensable in the kitchen, but also what is it that bothers many KitchenAid mixer’s users.
- Tilt head feature
Apart from other KitchenAid mixers that usually come with the feature of bowl-lift, this mixer comes with the option of head tilting. As a result, this model of the mixer is much taller and wider, allowing a bigger bowl fit. The tilt-head design allows an easy access to the bowl and attached beater or another accessory. Not to mention that this way you can easily add ingredients for a recipe and make sure that the mixture is always up to your preferences.
- An abundance of optional attachments
The power hub turns your stand mixer into the ultimate kitchen must have. As a matter of fact, the power hub allows 15 additional attachments that use the power of your stand mixer.
Because of the attachments, you will be able not only to make your own pasta from scratch but also to shred cheese in seconds. The variety of usefulness becomes so much wider and this is what sets the KitchenAid stand mixer from the rest of competition.
Accessories that are included in the mixer are a flat beater, dough hook, 6- wire whip and pouring shield. All you need to get started.
- A powerful machine
It won’t be an exaggeration to say that this stand mixer can perform any task you want it to. It is powerful enough to handle almost anything you throw into the bowl. This is a serious machine that comes with a stainless steel bowl that can take the 325-watt motor and the 10-speed settings.
The KitchenAid stand mixer is exceptionally easy and functional to use. It can be perfect for beginners as well as for professional chefs who want a compelling and all-purpose machine. This stand mixer is also sturdy, remains in one place and won’t walk off your working surface when active.
Additionally, the mixer is also really easy to clean. Bear in mind, however, that in order to clean the attachments you need to remove them from the mixer. he flat beater and dough hook are dishwasher-safe, as well as the stainless steel bowl.
- 59-Point Planetary Mixing Action
What does the ’59-Point Planetary Mixing Action’ actually means? The term refers to 59 touchpoints per rotation around the bowl. In other words, for every rotation around the bowl, the dough hook, wire whip, or beater has 59 touch points. This outstanding feature allows thorough ingredient incorporation and ensures comprehensive mixing.
- Over 20 Colors Available
The KitchenAid stand mixer was created to match your personality and cooking preferences. This is also visible in the color-scheme that is available, offering more than 20 colors to chose from. You can be sure to find the one that will match not only your style but also the interior design of your kitchen.
- The additional purchase of more attachments
Alongside the four attachments that are included with the mixer, you will need to purchase additional attachments for more cooking options. The attachments might also be pricey, but on the bright side, they will feet each model of the KitchenAid stand mixers.
- Grey residue after mixing
This might be one of the biggest complaints when it comes to this particular stand mixer. The issue is that the mixing bowl sometimes leaves grey-residue on the food you are mixing. The KitchenAid company has addressed the issue and recommended some tips to avoid this little mishap.
You can scrub your mixing bowl with either baking soda, salt or lemon to remove the polishing material used to polish the bowl. As a result, the grey-residue won’t reappear on your food anymore. It would be best to scrub your bowl first thing before starting to use the mixer.
- Requires more space
If you don’t have much space in your kitchen, I wouldn’t recommend purchasing this particular stand mixer. Since the KitchenAid tilt-head stand mixer is taller and wider, it requires much more space on your working surface.
- No overload protection
You can’t really leave your KitchenAid stand mixer unsupervised when it’s dealing with a lot of dough, for example. The reason for this is that the stand mixer doesn’t have the advanced feature of overload protection. What this basically means is it won’t turn off automatically, and if not turned off manually, it will probably burn out.
The KitchenAid tilt-head stand mixer offers a timeless design and ultimate versatility. With the assortment of optional attachments, it will inspire your creativity in the kitchen. The mixer is a classic KitchenAid tool, and when you put aside the several weaknesses, it is also a high-quality machine. The results you get are always consistently excellent, and the variety of colors to chose from add to the recognizable design. To purchase this mixer is to expect to have a life-long kitchen assistant, and it is definitely worthy of having.
