Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

2 of these died on us, one of them 4 uses in

Kate E 11/15/2019

I am pretty let down by this unit. As a small business, we rely on our mixers for important production of bread and pasta. After using a KitchenAid artisan for years, we needed something larger that would be more reliable and help us up production. We did a lot of research, and purchased one in February of this year. Two weeks ago, it died mid-production. We were sent a new model, and it died after four uses. This is definitely not a unit that is designed for commercial use. For one, although the production info sheet available online states that the attachment hub fits all KitchenAid attachments, after calling KitchenAid after the second unit died, I found out that you are actually not supposed to use standard KitchenAid attachments with the unit. Further, there are not commercial attachments available. The person on the phone said that this might have been a cause of a unit dying. Although I was told that the units ship with a sticker that says to not use the standard attachments, ours did not have this, and this is in opposition to the information provided online and reiterated in the user manual. We certainly would have looked for a different and more fitting unit had information online not said that the unit fits all KitchenAid attachments before we spent $700 + tax. Also, for bread making, the unit does come with a sticker that says to not use the dough hook on a speed higher than 2. While on the phone with a KitchenAid representative, I also found out that you are not supposed to knead dough for longer than 3-7 minutes, and that you should not stop the machine mid-knead. Again, had this information been more upfront, I would have found a unit that better suited our needs. However, this is not available in the product description, user manual, or website. The specifications for use do not fit a commercial setting, and, frankly, KitchenAid misrepresents the capability of the unit. I sincerely encourage individuals considering this unit to look at a different option. This unit is definitely not suited for a commercial setting, and it seems that KitchenAid is still dialing in the model. After having one die on me in 7 months, and one in under a week, I regret purchasing this unit. Somehow still have an Artisan model that is still kicking, but the Commercial models are disingenuous in how they present the unit. Also, as a restaurant, I'm timid toward online review culture. However, given the pushback and misrepresentation, I thought this was the best way to bring this serious any very legitimate concern to Kitchenaid in what is my first online review of anything ever.

Professional

Dana’s Confections 11/14/2019

I bought my first kitchenaid mixer in 1984 and it still works great but I've outgrown It so I purchased the 8qt to use for home baking biz. I like the bowl lift vs. tilt. The deep 8 qt. Bowl is perfect for doubling recipes and I love the all stainless attachments. The slow moving speed helps to keep ingredients in the bowl. The overall use is smooth and quiet. Whips up meringue.....and mountains of cookie dough continuously. The heavy large stainless bowl is not for the light weights, but I wash many times a day and I've gotten accustomed to it. I would buy this again and again.....it's the perfect mixer for me.

Everything I thought it would be and more!

Jackipp 10/17/2019

Exactly what I was looking for...I make batch products, and it's great to be able to make things all at once. It's a work horse,and doesn't even start to drag during use. The only thing I would change is to make the bowl easier to attach....you hav to line things up exactly.

great features

russ63 7/19/2019

Our previous mixers always struggled when we did bread dough. That's why we decided to try the 8 qt commercial model. We were not disappointed. It performs well with lots of power and it is also quieter than the other models we have had. You can still do all other mixing with no problem even in smaller amounts. We would have no reservations recommending this mixer the family and friends.

Powerful and quiet

VinoeVivo 6/27/2019

This commercial unit replaced a 6 quart unit in our restaurant that failed after only a year. This model is noticeably quieter and more powerful. More importantly, it comes with a two year warranty. Worth the upgrade.

Can handle what I give it

kenmar12 6/6/2019

I have already killed two counter top mixers so I thought I would bite the bullet and get the commercial grade KitchenAid. I am so glad I did!! I am a home baker and I bake LOTS of cookies. Usually in double batches. This mixer plows thru without an incident. The motor doesn't even seem to get bogged down at all. I am planning on using this mixer to bake cookies for any and every occasion that I need to - without worrying if it will break! So glad I have this one!

Great power!

Rob A. 5/2/2019

We bought this a few weeks ago and we absolutely love it for the power it has and it's relatively quiet. My wife makes a lot of bread so we needed a strong mixer to power through dough. This is the ticket!

Love the speed settings and size

Love Baking 2/18/2019

I have had this for about 8 months now and couldn't be happier. The only feature I wish it had was the tilting ability. Sometimes I find it quite difficult to pour dry ingredients in with the paddle in the way. There doesn't seem to be quite enough space even when you drop the bowl.

Finally a mixer with enough capacity and power

Tony P. 2/8/2019

I've been wanting a mixer with enough capacity and power for quite some time and the only thing available would be to jump up to an actual Hobart I've owned a 5qt proline since 1988 And it's still going strong but now it's at my sons house since we purchased the 8qt Commercial I love the versatility of this machine as you can use not only the 8qt bowl but if you like you can purchase the 7&5 qt bowls as well I purchased the 5 qt for smaller recipes and it works perfectly the soft start is a nice feature and it's very quiet & so far we love it

Love my kitchen aid

Linni 1/24/2019

I have had a kitchen aid for about 15 years. I just recently upgraded to the commercial series 8 Quart and im in love! works so well, large enough for multiple batch recipes and sounds solid when using. The mixers are heavy and solid feeling but the bowl is light weight and easy to carry when needed.

Awesome

5/28/2015

I had an Artisan stand mixer for years, but when I started baking for a coffee shop I decided I needed a little more power so I bought this commercial grade mixer. It is so much better for my use than I anticipated. I especially love the slow-on and the stainless paddle.
