KitchenAid Heavy Stand Mixer The KitchenAid K5SSWH is the mother of all stand mixers. It's one tough cookie, the Hummer of stand mixers- a powerful machine that is built tough and meant for heavy use. Just as I wouldn't advise someone to buy a Hummer for an around the town vehicle (how about an electric car or bicycle instead?), I also wouldn't recommend the KitchenAid K5SSWH to someone baking the occasional loaf of bread or birthday cake.

After all, this is a commercial grade mixer meant for big batches. With five mixing speeds plus a stir setting, this stand up mixer can do everything from folding walnuts into Mexican wedding cookies to whipping up cardamom cream. (I recommend cardamom whip cream on baked pears. Yum.)

The 325 watt motor sets the beater in a clockwise rotation while moving the shaft counterclockwise. Subsequently, the beater reaches every part of the bowl without requiring the bowl to rotate.

The mixer comes with a stainless steel, 5-quart bowl which stands flat on its indented base and features an ergonomic handle. A professional-style bowl lift raises the bowl into position. It also includes a flat beater, dough hook, and commercial wire whip.

With the help of four sealed rubber feet, the mixer stands stably in place. Its 3-wire, 6-foot power cord meets commercial requirements, and, as a safety mechanism, the overload reset button pops out if the mixer is overloaded, and the motor shuts off.

The KitchenAid K5SSWH is a burly machine and a big investment. If you're an occasional baker, check out the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer. This heavy-duty one may be more machine than you need. But if you spend more time in the kitchen than anywhere else, get ready to churn out the baked goods with this stellar stand up.
