Awesome Machine. Highly recommend

published

My mum always had a sunbeam and it lasted for decades. I bought one and it lasted 2 years if I was lucky. Had the ability to purchase a Kitchenaid and it is a fantastic machine. Far better than the new sunbeams on the market. It feels well built and does a great job. I bake alot and this machine has been fantastic. Where the same amount of baking burnt out the motor in the sunbeams. Unfortunately they do not seem built to last the decades anymore. My Kitchenaid has not skipped a beat. I would highly recommend buying one if you like to bake. Every house should have one.

Awful product and customer service -

published

purchased with a manufacturer fault which I waited 6 weeks to receive any information about this item, I continued to make contact as I didn’t not hear from either party. After receiving my mixer back it had scratches all over it! I Hadn’t even used it. It came back worse then I had sent it. Again I sent it to them advising them of this issue - I waited approx 1 month to hear this is wear and tear. I am disappointed in the service to not only have owned it less then one year but to only has used it maybe 5 times. I won’t be purchasing from them again.

I cant fault it

published

After alot of waiting around for the perfect price i finally bite the bullet and gave my arms a well needed rest. The Kitchen aid performance is faultless and i have never had any drama or difficulties using different ingredients. The only downfall is the price of attachments are insanely expensive and sometimes food in the bowl will rise above the beaters. The bowl is a nice decent size and seems very well made.

It’s staying on the bench top

After only a week since purchasing this mixer I am convinced that it has changed my life! I made sfincione and it was the dough I have been striving for for over twenty years. Can’t wait to try my standard pizza dough and I’m looking forward to trying the brioche from the Kitchenaid recipe site.

Durable well made product

published

Off the box my first impression is that this is a very well made solid product. I’m hoping that it will be as durable as it seems. It works well and does the job that it is meant to do plus more. The number of accessories is amazing - more than what I can afford or use. Still it’s good to know that the option is there. Will definitely recommend.

Terrible

published

Broke down early on. Good motor but the rest makes it over priced and not fix for purpose. No good for making bread even though it comes with a mixing arm.

I can't believe I waited so long to buy one!

published

I received this stand mixer for Christmas after much debate and research. I absolutely love it. I bake and it has quietly and efficiently done it's job. I have made dough, pavlovas, cakes, biscuits, etc. You do have to stop and scrape the sides every now and then but nothing like the cheap mixers I have had in the past. I will never be without a Kitchen Aid mixer again.

My Best Friend in the Kitchen

published

How I love my KitchenAid KSM160 Artisan-Ice... could not be happier with motor performance - a lot quieter than my previous Kenwood of 40 years. The KitchenAid works very well with different food types aided by the skilled design of the attachments & accessories - especially the rubber edged mixing blade...I also have the glass bowl for summertime pavlovas n mango mousse in Australia:) The capacity of each bowl is perfect for keeping the ingredients inside the bowls & not up the wall.... The KitchenAid is good old American ingenuity & great to see made in USA & the choice of colours is wonderful. My KitchenAid is a piece of working art in my Kitchen - I absolutely love it - thank you KitchenAid:)

Love it and should have bought one years ago!

published

Love the mixer. Mixing bowls are a great size. Good basic attachments provided, but I do find the cost of extra beaters excessive! Why do they have to be so expensive? Love the bowl shield that came with the machine! Saves a lot of mess.

Excellent

I have tried this mixer for the first time today, made sponge and Pav, they have turned out the best ever. I am very pleased with my purchase. I found it easy to use, quiet and effective, I hope it continues to perform with such excellence. I will be attempting a batter next.

The best

published

This is the best thing ever. I thought it might be one of those things that I would buy and hardly use, but it’s so handy I use it about once a fortnight at least. The motor is so powerful, even to knead dough with the dough hook. The bowl size is more than adequate for the home cook.

Poor Product

published

Very disappointed in our Kitchenaid mixer. We are lucky to use it once a month and just after 5 years (warranty period) it has failed. It trips the circuit breaker after 3-4 minutes of use. I would have thought that for the amount of money we pay for this product and the amount of use, it would have lasted much longer. Called Kitchenaid direct and said there is nothing they can do because its out of warranty...
My mum has a Kenwood mixer which is over 30 years old, beats the kitchenaid hands down.
I would never buy another kitchenaid branded product again!!!!!

Effortless mixing, gorgeous design

published

I love my KitchenAid standmixer! So far I have made foccacia bread, jam and custard doughnuts, and lime and coconut cake. This mixer runs smoothly, quietly and efficiently. It is a pleasure to use and takes the elbow grease out of cooking. I can't wait to try some of the KitchenAid accessories.

A must have for every kitchen.

published

My new KSM170 kitchen aid stand mixer beats a treat. In no time at all using the 2.5 liter mixing bowl I whipped up a gorgeous pavlova then topped it off with whipped cream beaten up in the same mixer. The family was really impressed and demolished the pavlova in no time at all. The 2.5 and 4.8 litre stainless steel mixing bowls and 4.7litre glass mixing bowl are easily interchanged between the two kitchen stand mixers I currently have in use in my kitchen. My existing mixer has been happily in service in my kitchen for over 20 years giving me no problems at all. I have successfully used the mincing and spiralising attachments with it. The specializing attachment is the best of its type I have seen in the market place.

Kitchen aid replacement from my mothers hand me down from 35 years ago.

published

My hand me down broken down in October 2018 finally after 35 years.. I went out a brought a cheap mixer $20 BIGGEST MISTAKE, trouble from the first mix...researched and kept my eyes out for another kitchenaid as I knew they were expensive. Pre boxing sale from David Jones were half price. That’s when I brought my ksm160, I knew from past experience that it was worth the cost and the months of waiting for the right price. The updated model was fabulous, cakes, cream, bread WONDERFUL. i have used all the attachments and the two bowls, looking at maybe another attachment for the future when another appliance breaks down

KSM170

Is there a bowl scraper whipping accessory for KSM170
A stainless bowl and pour cover that will fit the stainless bowl.

1 answer
Shanice A
Shanice A

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.

2 answers
Shanice A
Shanice A

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

1 answer
Shanice A
Shanice A

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.
