As a professional cook, I am always looking for appliances that will make my life easier. The KitchenAid KP26M1QPB Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer is one of those appliances. I like that it comes in many different colors, and the 67 touch points means that even dense ingredients are mixed properly.
This stand mixer includes a 10 speed, 575 watt control motor. It has a stainless steel wide mouth bowl that holds 6-quarts. It yields 8 bread loaves, 13 dozen cookies or 8 pounds of mashed potatoes in a single batch. The dimensions are: width – 7 ¼ “, height – 17”, depth – 9”, and weight 29 lbs. It is available in more than 10 colors, to match any décor.
The KP26M1QPB has 67-Point Planetary Mixing Action. This means that there are 67 touch points per rotation around the bowl, and is ideal for denser mixes. The beater, dough, hook or wire whip rotates around the bowl, ensuring that all ingredients are incorporated into the mixture. Overall, this mixer is versatile and easy to use.
Includes Powerknead™ Spiral Dough Hook, Flat Beater, and Stainless Steel Wire Whip. Optional attachments include food grinders, pasta makers, rotor slicer/shredder, coffee maker, pasta press, mixer attachments, ravioli maker, grain mill, pasta cutter, fruit and vegetable strainer, ice cream maker, beaters, hooks, whips, bowls and bowl covers.
KitchenAid stands by their products, and has a hassle-free one year warranty. They will immediately replace the mixer if it fails within the year, paying not only to deliver a new mixer, but to return the damaged one. They also recommend registration of the product upon purchase, and will notify users of any product safety recalls.
KitchenAid is one of the top names in kitchen appliances, so I can nearly always recommend their products. Have a look at Amazon for the current price of this stand mixer.. This professional mixer is no exception; it is powerful and easy to use. It comes with some standard attachments, but for me a real draw is the more than 15 optional attachments that help me make everything from pasta to soup to ice cream. Reviewers love it, and I do too.
