Are all Kitchen Aid bowls able to be used on the KSM170 mixer? And if not which bowls can be used?
Is there a bowl scraper whipping accessory for KSM170
A stainless bowl and pour cover that will fit the stainless bowl.
I got a pour cover with my KSM160 and it seems a little big for the large stainless steel bowl so I suppose the one you can purchase from KitchenAid would fit. I know the beating attachment has a scraper on it that you can purchase, not sure if it comes with the KSM170. I didn’t get it with my KSM160
The differences between KSM 160 and KSM 177? They look pretty much the same with same attachments.
I think it’s just that the 177 is the newer model, hence the $750-$800 price tag. I found minimal mechanical difference between the 177 and 160, but the colours varied in the different models and there was a $200-$250 price difference. I got the 160 in the light pink and paid $550 for it. I think 1 attachment is different but you can purchase it separately anyway, I’m pretty sure.

I bought a pearl finish mixer a few months ago and it finish has a scratch in it. I would have thought that the finish was hardened, at least to be scratch resistant.
Has anyone else had this problem or have any advice?

Why the scraper beater is not supplied as standard with the kitchen aid mixer
I have a question the 5ksm160 came with 2 bowls beater, whisk and hook, was it supposed to come with a pouring shield as well like the ksm160 as it didnt
Hi Judi, both the KSM150 and KSM160 include the pouring shield. Can you please reach out to our customer care team on 1800 990 990 and they will be able to assist further? Thanks, The KitchenAid Team
Hi. I have a ksm150. I was planning on buying an extra bowl for it. I Am getting a 4.7 ltr bowl at a shop near me but wasn't sure it will fit as I suppose ksm150 has a 4.8ltr bowl. Let me know if that is ok or which one to buy
Whether or not the bowl will fit has more to do with how it locks into the machine than anything else. The size of the bowl won't make much difference. However ensure the bowl is made specially for use with kitchenaids as they need a particular diameter and shape in other for the beater action to be effective, and they have a lock in mechanism that is different in manufacture than most other brands. A universal one may not work.
Hi Aarti, we recommend purhasing the 4.8L stainless steel bowl for the KSM150. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

i want to buy either a Kitchen Aid Mixer or a Kitchen Aid Food Processor..Im a very basic cook and don't know what would be the best all-rounder machine for me to buy
Thanks for reaching out to us. Can you please let us know if you bake a lot? If you do, we recommend the Stand Mixer as it is the go to for making cakes, bread, pastries, dough - the list is endless! The hub on the Stand Mixer allows you to grow beyond baking, where you can attach over 14 different attachments which ranges from pasta attachments, spiralizer, meat grinders and the vegetable sheet cutter. The food processor is great for meal preparation for slicing, dicing, pureeing and chopping.

What's the difference between the KSM150 and 5KSM150?
It is the same model. The KSM150 naming convention is used in America whereas the '5' in KSM150 is for models in other regions.

Hi, could I know the difference between ksm 177 160 and 150?
The timing in the instruction book regarding the bread kneading is way off. I have used both the methods in the instruction book and having the dough knead with the hook at Speed of 2 did not provide the texture that I want within 4-6 minutes and I am cautious of not using other higher speed for kneading purposes. Please kindly advise whether it is still alright to continue kneading the dough using the hook for more than the required time and does this process affect the machine itself?
