Problems with lock for tilting head

J Sutton, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Not ready to give up on KitchenAid altogether, but would definitely rethink the Ultra-Power model. Received mine as a birthday gift (HAPPY birthday to me!) and made several batches of bread but found that the tilt head wasn't locking securely in place. After a short time of kneading dough, the latch would actually free itself and the mixer head would start bouncing up and down.

Needs to be re-designed by someone who actually bakes!

  • Summary: If you want a good looking mixer, get this one. If you bake enough to notice whats missing from this blender you should be using the proffesional one anyhow.
  • Pros: I love the way this mixer looks, comes with dough hook,paddle blender,whisk blenders.
  • Cons: Bowl not wide enough,doesnt switch positions,pin vibrates loose,bowl difficult to unlock

Good Mixer

Mommymeng1, RC Willey
31 January 2011
  • Conclusion: I like this mixer for making cakes or whipping mashed potatoes but it doesn't do a good job mixing heavy doughs for making bread. And the mixer begins to smoke while mixing. The bread always comes out heavy. If you like making home made bread I would no recommend this mixer.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Assemble
  • Cons: Doesn't Work as Advertised

Beaters not dishwasher safe

Monica C. Ballard, Amazon
3 December 2010
  • Summary: The mixer works great, but the beaters that came with it had a burnished metal coating that makes them not dishwasher safe. KitchenAid and other companies make dishwasher safe replacements for some of the beaters. I learned this the hard way. The dishwasher removed the coating and there was this oily black stuff that would not come off which rendered the beaters useless. KitchenAid support told me there was nothing I could do except replace them.

Good product...but.....

Crazy Cat Lady, Meijer

  • Excerpt: While I do not regret having purchased the mixer, I have found that I use my hand mixer and food processor more frequently to do similar tasks because of their portability and ease of clean up in comparison to this item.
  • Pros: Capacity, Even Mixing, Heavy Duty, Works Quietly
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Difficult to Store, Heavy

Hard to add ingredients, powerful

smartblnde, Meijer
16 November 2008
  • Excerpt: I love this mixer. It gets the job done, and done quickly. However, it is not conducive to adding ingredients without stopping the mixer or putting on the plastic attachment in order to be able to add ingredients. Replacement parts are expensive [...].Storing the plastic attachment takes a lot of room in a drawer.
  • Pros: Capacity, Even Mixing, Heavy Duty, Stand alone
  • Cons: Challenge to add ingredie, Replacement parts expense

Don't waste your money

Sazperella, Amazon

  • Summary: This accessory is totally unnecessary for a kitchen aid. As long as you're careful when adding ingredients to the mixing bowl, this gadget isn't really needed.

Poor quality plastic and flimsy for money

Allison Feeley, Amazon
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Not used it yet, looks like it will do the job but thought it flimsy and could break easily. Expensive for what it is. Perhaps I should have just covered the kitchen aid with a tea towel when pouring!
