Standup Mixer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've had Heavy Duty KA Mixer for 17 years but want one with a bigger capacity and stronger motor.  I am looking at the KS Professional 600 series.  I mostly do cakes, icings, cookies, but also want it strong enough for occassional bread doughs. 

Anyone know about the KAPro 600 series? 

Is the gear box still plastic or are they all metal now? 

And also, is it noisier than your average mixer? 

Should I even consider buying a factory refurbished one?

The pro models are metal - the artisans are either depending on who they were built for.

 

KitchenAid builds them to the specs of the customer - generally the cheaper they are selling for the more short cuts KA takes in their manufacture.  (there are many more models than what are shown on the KA site)

 

My advice is to buy it from a big cash-carry store like Costco or somewhere that has a 1 year no questions return/exchange policy.   Then run that sucker like it's rented for at least the first month, if anything is going to break it will break in the first month (if you use it).
