Equipped with a high-performance, professional-level motor, this multi-function stand mixer does it all -- mixing, whipping, kneading, everything from egg whites up to 14 cups of all-purpose flour per recipe (the mixer is capable of mixing ingredients for up to 8¼ 1-pound loaves of white bread, 13 dozen chocolate chip cookies, or 8 pounds of mashed potatoes). Ten mixing speeds allow you to stir, knead, mix, or whip at the velocity appropriate for the recipe; a soft start feature helps prevent ingredient splash-out and flour-puff by starting the mixer slowly before stepping up to the selected speed. The generous 6-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 stand mixer comes with three attachments: a flat beater for making batter, meat loaf, and all textures in-between; a 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. A pouring shield fits around the bowl and prevents ingredients from splashing out; a chute makes it convenient and easy to add ingredients while mixing. The professional bowl-lift design includes muscular metal arms for stable mixing and a comfortable bowl-lift lever which raises heavy ingredients into the mixing position. Durable die-cast metal construction provides the sturdiness required to support the power of the mixer. A multi-purpose attachment hub powers a variety of attachments (sold separately), including food grinders, pasta makers and rollers, graters, and strainers.
