If you’re having a hard time deciding which KitchenAid mixer might be the best for you, here’s a little breakdown of the main differences between them:
KitchenAid Stand In Mixers are divided into two main categories, home use and commercial use. The most popular mixers for home use are the Classic and the Artisan. Then, all Kitchenaid’s with the word “Pro” in them (as in Professional, or Pro Line) are meant for heavier use.
The Classic is KitchenAid’s entry level mixer, as it has the least amount of power. The Classic Plus has a bit more power, thus making it capable of kneading bread dough in small amounts.
The Artisan is slightly more expensive but is far better for bread dough. Most of them have 325 watts of power, which means that they are still meant for home use but aficionado bakers can still get away with using them rigorously to craft goodies for small bake sells or hosting get-togethers. They will also rise up to the challenge of holiday baking.
Then come the Pros. The main things to look out for if you’re in the market for a heavy duty mixer from KitchenAid are power, bowl capacity, whether they have a liftable bowl (handy for mixing in large quantities) and the type of motor they have.
Motor type is perhaps the greatest distinction between Kitchenaid’s commercial models. Most models labelled as “Professional” and with a number under 700 in their name have AC motors, which are rated in watts.
Models such as the Professional 6000 HD or the 6500, as well as the Pro Line series, all have DC motors which are rated in horsepower (hp).
A big thing that makes KitchenAid Stand Mixers so special and sought-after is the wide variety of attachments that you can use them with, making it an extremely versatile tool to have in your kitchen.
So, since we’re at it, check out the different stand mixer attachments that you can get below:
With any of these, make sure to read up on what Stand Mixer’s they’re compatible with, as every attachment has different models to go with.
On a lighter note…
Everyone knows that a car can be given the look of a hot rod with a few flames running from under the hood.
The simulation of early nitro-burst racing additive that sometimes shoots flames out from under the hoods of cars, or the flames imagined to have come from such supped up engines, has been symbolized by stylized flames being painted along the fenders and doors.
Now your MIXER can sport the same look, proclaiming to the world what a hot chef you are 🙂
Flame it up and hot rod your kitchen mixer with flame decals!
You stand out in a crowd, and so should your mixer. It gets you places you might not otherwise go, so show it some love and make it feel special.
Custom painting can cost a fortune, and may lead to paint flaking at just the wrong mixing moment. The use of adhesive decals (like the ones used on some tricked out cars) will prevent that sort of tragedy in your kitchen.
FlameKA now offers a decal kit, including the stickers and a cleaning/prep kit. There are three different designs currently, and users are encouraged to mix and match as they please. The stickers lend themselves to being cut down, making it easy to apply to the base as well as the sides of your mixer.
These Decal Flame kits will fit the KitchenAid (Kitchen Aid) Classic, Artisan, 4, 4.5, 5, 6 qt (quart), Professional, Pro 600, Accolade, UltraPower, Hobart N-50, Viking, Sunbeam, Delonghi and Wolfgang Puck mixer models to make them look like a custom paint job. Some models may require a little trimming before application. They are also touted as working to sup up your lawnmower.
The FlameKA decals are designed to last for 5 years outdoors. Better treatment leads to a longer life. The decals can withstand heat -40 F to 180 F and are resistant to mild acids, alkalis, and salt solutions. They have an added benefit of making you clean up your mixer after use in a timely manner to preserve the decals.
These decals can add a bit of fun to your kitchen. Make a statement and give your power mixer some panache 🙂
