The Lowdown On KitchenAid Mixers

One of the most important features in a mixer is how well it covers the area inside the bowl. After all, whipping, creaming, and kneading are what stand mixers are for. KitchenAid uses what they call Planetary Mixing Action. That means dozens of touch points per rotation around the bowl for thorough ingredient incorporation. Both the Artisan and Classic have 59-Point Planetary Mixing Action while the Pro Series has 67-Points.

When you consider the incredible array of additional tools you can attach to your Kitchenaid stand mixer, it takes everything to a whole new level. Ice cream maker, pasta roller and cutter, grain mill, sausage maker, citrus juicer, spiralizer – the list goes on and on. KitchenAid keeps coming out with more amazing attachments, too. I made a TOP 10 list of my favorites that you can see in another tab. Check them out by clicking here.

America’s Test Kitchen Stamp Of Approval!

America’s Test Kitchen chose the Pro Series and the Classic as their top 2 picks. I’ve included their video to show you why. It’s a great way to see all the elements you should be considering when choosing the mixer that’s right for you.

Fixed Head vs Tilt Head

This is one of the main differences that separates the Pros Series from the other two. It’s fixed head also means that it uses a crank to raise and lower the bowl into position rather than raising the head. It’s more than just a question of accessibility – though most people seem to prefer the tilt head for that. The fixed head makes for a strong and more stable build. That’s something worth thinking about if you’re planning on making extra large batches of cookies, muffins, or pizza dough.
