I have two mixers, one is a Kenwood that is on the floor of my pantry closet. The other/newer one is my Kitchenaid with the bowl that lifts up, it's too big to stay on my small counter, so it's on the floor of my kitchen.

The Kitchenaid weighs like 30 lbs, so it sits permanently on my kitchen counter. I've lived in four places since I bought it and at all of them there was enough space between the countertop and the cabinets above for it to fit. It's the tilt-head model.

Besides, I wanted it forever, so it would be a shame to jam it in a cupboard somewhere.

You are better off asking for measurements for the actual mixers than for pictures, since I assume every kitchen is different.

Here's a few I got from Amazon. All I know is that the Kitchen Aids are taller.

ahh, good point imagenthatnj, I am just a very visual person so it felt natural to just ask for pictures lol! Didn't think about different construction of different kitchens icon_razz.gif! I am not able to find a store that carries the larger mixers in stock, you have to order online, so I do not know how much larger they are!

I have a 6q Kitchen Aid that sits on my counter, besides the 4.5q. The 6q KA would not fit on my mom's counter under her cabinets, but I happen to have more space between mine. So I'm not sure if visual pictures will give you the information you are looking for. The best thing is to measure the space you have to put a mixer and see if the one you want will fit in it.

You need 15 inches between your board and cabinets. That's not including the space you'll need when the head is up/tilted.
