Consumer Reviews

(Back to Top)

I’ve read hundreds of reviews on this mixer and comments regarding the surprising power are sprinkled throughout many of them. The greater horsepower than the more basic models is noticeably different which makes it more versatile. Getting ingredients inside the bowl without having the tilt head was cumbersome for some users but the lower profile made it a better choice for anyone who wanted to be able to stow it on the counter and under their upper kitchen cabinets.

There were a few mentions of the mixer stalling or not functioning properly but, on the whole, the comments are extremely positive and the ratings are very strong.

Pros and Cons

(Back to Top)

XXPRODUCTNAMEXX prosPros: KitchenAid Professional 5 Plus Series is considered to be one of the best mixers today, and such popularity is attributed to several features that made the product exceptionally competent. Aside from possessing a 10-variable speed setting that allows you to customize the speed of your mixer according to desired purpose and a motor protector that can automatically stop the unit when damages on the machine become imminent, its speed controller that can sustain the required speed and slow start feature promotes a gradual mixing process, preventing flour showers and ensuring a well-blended ingredient and a sufficiently kneaded dough at all times. Additionally, even with its powerful 450-watt motor that is capable of doing heavy mixing jobs, the machine manages to quietly do its mixing jobs efficiently, even quieter than a microwave according to some.

Another reason to like this product is because of its attachments that come in the form a flat beater, a spiral dough hook and a whip wire. These accessories, which are easily installed and washed, add up to the versatility of the mixer that enables you to do almost anything in kitchen – from light batters, whip creams to heavy pizza dough. Moreover, aside from the stability we get from its wide metal base and 67 different points from its bowl, you can also adjust the height of the beater with the adjustment screw.

Furthermore, alongside with its special bowl that goes through a locking mechanism, its bowl-lift head type provides easy access and handling. On the lighter side, apart from its direct-drive transmission and all-metal built, the purchase of the product comes with a hassle-free, one-year warranty.

XXPRODUCTNAMEXX consCons: On the other side of the coin, KitchenAid Professional 5 Plus Series also has some drawbacks to bear with. For some customers, its fairly large dimensions impose a bit of inconvenience. Since it’s pretty tall and a bit heavy, some people find it hard to fit it on counters and cabinets. Secondly, getting a good angle when scraping off all the stuff also becomes a problem for some, and that detaching the bowl becomes the only option.

Another problem you might encounter would be the overheating of the machine. You might need to take extra time when planning to mix stiff dough, since the product may overheat after few minutes of mixing action. This may serve to be very bothersome for you might need to wait for the machine to cool off before it could get back in action. In addition to this, the paint around the beater spindle may chip of and the hinge pin may start loosening up after few months of use, so extra caution is advised, especially when you get to use the mixer that often. On top of this, some have reported a contrasting experience as far as its durability is concerned. While others would claim that the unit is durable and long-lasting, others would say it gets easily broken even after using it lightly.
