I purchased it when I got fed up by the Hamilton Beach 63227 that I’ve had for about 1 year. I was always eyeballing a KitchenAid, but when I found the Hamilton for just 60 bucks new I pulled the trigger. It was not a bad mixer, but it was never powerful enough, and regretted my decision every time I was using it. Well, time came to get a meat grinder attachment (the stainless SmokehouseChef one) and what a better opportunity to change my mixer? So I searched and researched and stumbled upon this commercial KitchenAid. What a great find!
This mixer is similar in size to the Professional 600 that we also considered. It is almost 17” tall, so it fits perfectly under the cabinet (and it looks fantastic too, orange cord included – tucked away in the back). And because it doesn’t tilt, I can keep it in one position and never move it (the Hamilton – a tilt head model – we needed to take out every time as we couldn’t tilt it under the cabinet). Also, the 8qt bowl is big (or at least that’s my impression after switching from a 4.5qt one), but it is mostly tall. It is so tall in fact that there are issues adding ingredients – when we use this bowl we always have to lower it to add ingredients.
