This stand mixer brings innovation and style to your kitchen. Beautiful and hard-working, the stand mixer's strong 325-watt motor delivers the power to handle the heaviest mixtures, and mix large batches easily. The mixer makes child's play of creaming butter, kneading dough, and whipping cream, everything from egg whites up to 9 cups of all-purpose flour per recipe (the mixer is capable of mixing ingredients for up to 4½ 1-pound loaves of white bread, 9 dozen chocolate chip cookies, or 7 pounds of mashed potatoes). The 10 mixing speeds provide flexibility and control whether you’re creating a new recipe for cupcakes or your famous herb mashed potatoes. The generous 5-quart glass bowl with raised measurement lines accommodates large batches of heavy mixtures and features an ergonomic handle that is contoured to fit the hand and makes lifting the bowl more comfortable; a non-drip spout ensures less pouring mess. The bowl is microwave- and freezer- safe, so you can use it for more than just mixing -- from melting butter in the microwave to chilling dough, the durable bowl is up to the task. The mixer employs a planetary mixing action; the beater spins clockwise as the shaft spins counter clockwise, moving the beater to 67 different points around the bowl for superb results. This unique mixing action creates a thorough blend of ingredients and eliminates the need to rotate the bowl. 10 speeds allow the user to select the right speed for the mixing job; from very high to very slow stir. It's easy to select the precise speed needed for a perfect mix. The stand mixer comes with three attachments: a flat beater for making batter, meat loaf, and all textures in-between; a 6-wire whisk incorporates the maximum amount of air in whipped mixes for fluffier whipped cream and lighter angel food cakes; and a dough hook mixes and kneads yeast doughs. All three are solidly constructed and easily secured to the beater shaft with a simple twist. The tilt-back mixer head allows for easy access to bowl and beaters. A lock lever holds the mixer head securely in place and the bowl fastens tightly to the base.
The multi-purpose attachment hub powers 12 different attachments (sold separately), including food grinders, pasta makers, and vegetable slicers.
