KitchenAid Professional 600 Series Reviews

The majority of people who purchased and used the KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer were very pleased with it’s performance. As a matter of fact, most people who bought this mixer had previously used smaller KitchenAid mixers, especially the Artisan style, and wanted something that would handle more ingredients at one time. One user is ecstatic that this mixer handles an entire 5lb box of cake mix so she can make wedding cakes in one batch. Another user says this mixer flawlessly handles bread dough that other mixers struggle with.

Other users love the look of this machine, and proudly leave it on their countertops, claiming it goes well with all kitchen décor. While a few users mentioned that the machine shuts off a few minutes into mixing bread dough, others seem to be happy with the performance. The mixer will in fact cut off, due to a motor protection feature that cuts the mixer off when it gets too hot. This is to prevent the motor from burning out. This can happen occasionally when mixing stiff bread dough.

Users also commented on the extra attachments that can be purchased through KitchenAid, and were very happy with the availability of these. Although there were a few customers who seemed displeased with the product, most people mentioned that KitchenAid’s customer service worked with them to replace or fix any broken parts. The majority of the reviews of the KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer were very satisfied with the way it performed, and therefore, it seems to be a great investment for any kitchen.
