I have made a double batch numerous times in my 6 qt KA, and it seems like it can hold more. Can I do a triple batch or is that pushing it?
By batch, I mean one that includes a 2 lb. bag of PS, 2 cups butter/shortening.

Thanks!

Yes, you can triple that. I use 6 1/2 cups butter/shortenning and 6 1/2 lb ps.

Thanks, I had been wondering that myself. I got a Pro 600 for Christmas and have made a double batch but not tried the triple icon_biggrin.gif

I make a triple all the time and have no problems and it doesn't incorporate air into the icing as it covers the paddle.

Good luck to you all. If you'll google it for problems you'll notice the worm gear wears out these babies quite frequently (unless they've changed the model in the past couple of years). No way no how would I do it again. It'll work ok for awhile, but it wears it down pretty quick. Do it at your own risk, but don't say you weren't warned. (Personally I hate mine & would give it away if I hadn't spent so much money on it)

I really wanted a 600 for a while but I've heard all kinds of horror stories like this. I guess I'll stick with my basic 5qt artisan and keep making everything in several batches icon_rolleyes.gif

Bummer huh !!! But it would be ashamed to mess up such an important item required for baking.

Mine went ka put about 3 min into mixing my batch. Talk about AIR HOLES. I ended up mixing small amounts w/ my hand mixer, freezing it & using for filling & cupcakes. I was pissed.

I called a company asking ?s about their commercial mixer. The lady I was talking to said they use to carry KA 6qt & had almost every single one returned, so they quit carrying them. She said the 5 qt is actually better craftsmanship than the 6 qt.
