I would like to hear from anyone who has the Kitchenaid 7 or 8 quart Kitchenaid mixers. I just
burned out my 3rd Kitchenaid mixer. My first 2 were 5 quarts, this last one was a 6 quart, and I make wedding cakes as a business and need to go to the 7 or 8 quart. I would just like opinions from others that own them before I invest in another one of the same brand.
AI can't speak of kitchen aids, but I have the Kenwood chef major pro and so far 3 years and it works as well as tbe day I got it (I also use it as a business) and my chef premier is also going strong 4 years on from purchasing it.
Maybe an idea to change brand if kitchen aids are burning out on you so frequently? Or get a small hobart? They are work horses!
AI have the KA Professional 600 - 6 qt, I believe. I know that's not what you asked about, but did you have this one?
I can't say that I love it.
I hate the the whisk doesn't seem to go anywhere near the sides of the bowl. And I hate that the top doesn't flip up. So you have to unhook the whisk and take off the bowl to properly scrape the bowl. Is this true of all bigger mixers? I wish my KA classic bowls could hold more!
When the time comes, I don't think I will be buying another KA. Will look into the one mentioned above.
WOW .. I have had my KA for over 20+ years without issue.. I wonder why the newer ones are having these issues...
Because the old ones were made pretty much commercial grade and the new ones aren't. I think 20 years ago Kitchen Aid was owned by Hobart, but the Kitchen aid division was sold to Whirlpool. Kitchen Aid sells one commercial grade mixer now, it's around $700-800 last time I priced them.
