Old world quality
The motor is powerful and relatively quiet. We make pasta regularly, and with this machine you can go from mixing the dough to cutting the noodles with the optional KA attachments and boy is it quick! The volume of the bowl is more than adequate for household use and is easy to keep clean. We have also purchased additional attachments over time to increase its versatility. The classic design of this mixer has not changed much in decades and it's not hard to see why. It is not the cheapest mixer on the market, but it is an investment and I wager I will be handing it down to my kids someday.

I've had the same problem. Stops when changing speed and sometimes spontaneously turns off (and not because of overheating). Usually I take it back to the off position and turn it back on and it's fine. It makes me nervous though. So much money for something that's potentially very unreliable. Now it turns off completely if I try to turn it to max speed. It also doesn't mix well, you constantly have to turn it off and scrape down the sides. It doesn't do small quantities at all, even though it's advertised as being able to whisk as little as one egg white. Very disappointed.
Have only recently purchased 7590 but have used it for my bread making. My only disappointment so far is the lack of any printed recipes to get you started as these come with other kitchen aid mixers purchased and I don't want to refer to Internet sites all the time. Having something to start with helps to familiarise yourself with the mixer,it's power and would help with adjusting recipes you already have. The booklet inside does give information on approx mix times etc but I think something more included would be better considering it is a significant outlay for a mixer. Would like a smaller bowl being able to be purchased as often you need to use two different sizes for a recipe.
Very happy with
Just got it days ago, I couldn't really see any problems. But so far the ever ever. Very happy with my purchase and can't wait to try all recipes available. Only difficult is put and take the bowl out of the machine. I'm already looking on YouTube for great recipes to put this machine to feed my family.
Love this machine
I was given one of these awesome machines 12 months ago and I absolutely love using it. In the box it had the machine, 6.9l bowl, paddle attachment, whisk attachment, dough hook and bowl guard/pouring chute.
Had been using another brand prior to this that was nearly 40 years old and its only problem was it had gotten extremely loud, worked perfectly well, but extremely loud. The Kitchenaid is so quiet compared to my old machine and compared to friends that have other mixer.
My old machine was a tilt head model, and it worked well for ...me for many years. This heavenly workhorse is a bowl lift model. Took a couple of times not to try and tilt the head, but it is the greatest thing. Everything drips back into the center of the bowl and not off to the side. Never had any idea that would be a good thing, but it is. Swiss and Italian meringue buttercreams or so quick with this mixer as the whisk attachment really aerates the whites and easily blends in the butter and shortening.. The dough hook it is great design at it the dough doesn't creek up and try and jump out of the bowl, and the paddle attachment is really solid and goes through anything. I have tried the Food Grinder Attachment on this mixer and it did it easily. I have used the 3 piece pasta roller attachment and it worked perfectly. The fruit/vegetable strainer attachments works better on this machine than it did on my friends artisan simply because it has more height.
Questions & Answers
Can the KSM7590 handle smaller ingredient amounts as well as the Artisan and Classic mixers?
Short answer is no. It’s supposed to be able to whisk a single egg white. I find it needs at least 3. The machine is great for large volumes, but regular cake mix or dough quantities, it just doesn’t pick up or mix. I’ve been really disappointed with the pick up of ingredients, even at large volumes. You constantly have to stop the machine and scrape and turn the mix.
Thank you so much for the info. I really wanted a bowl-lift mixer (for no particularly good reason), but it sounds like I’ll be buying a tilt head instead. I rarely make large quantities, but was more concerned with the ability of smaller mixers to handle heavy bagel doughs etc. I will probably get the Artisan model.
What is the difference between the KSM7581 and KSM7590? They seem to have slightly different dimensions, but otherwise identical technical specs. Will the KSM7590 ever be available in red?
