KSM170

Are all Kitchen Aid bowls able to be used on the KSM170 mixer? And if not which bowls can be used?

I would think so because it’s the little grooves in the base of the bowl that lock into the mixer. I may be wrong but I can’t see why they would be different

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 agree with Shanice - KSM177 comes with a flex beater and has a smaller and different colour range. Other specs seem the same.

What is the biggest kitchen aid you can buy

I think the KitchenAid Pro Line (over $1000) is larger than the normal stand mixer. You would have to do a bit of a comparison in the engine size etc to see if it is more powerful. Depends what you’re gonna be using it for.

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?

Mine has not scratched and has been used a long time. It is not a pear finish though.

KSM150 Artisan

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

2 answers

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.

Hi Toffi,

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.

Hi Jack,

It is the same model. The KSM150 naming convention is used in America whereas the '5' in KSM150 is for models in other regions.

KSM150 Artisan

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?
