The stand mixer that’s ready for anything

The KitchenAid mixer was the first home stand mixer to feature ‘planetary action’. But what does planetary action actually mean? It means the shaft of the mixer rotates in one direction, while the attachment rotates in the other, giving a much more thorough mix. The beater spirals to at least 59 touchpoints around the bowl, so everything you throw is will be fully mixed in – nothing is missed.

From mixing cake batter to whisking up whipped cream or kneading pasta dough, select your accessory and choose your speed, from 1 for a gentle stir, to 6 for beating and creaming, and up to 10 for fast whipping.

A pleasure to use and easy to clean

When you’re itching to get started with your new mixer, the last thing you need is to be wrestling with tricky accessories and complicated controls. The tilt-head construction of this mixer makes things super easy. Just lock the bowl into place, pop in your chosen beater and lower the head. Slide the speed lever to start. Simple as that.

Cleaning up is a dream too. The included pouring shield protects the mixer and work surfaces from getting splashed when you’re pouring ingredients into the bowl and mixing. And, when you’re finished, all accessories (dough hook, whisk and paddle) are dishwasher safe. Then it’s time to relax and relish the eating.

Big or small batches with the KitchenAid 4.8 L

With this stand mixer you get not one, but two, handy bowls. This means you can make extra for batch cooking, or juggle two stages of a recipe at once: Mix your dough in one, whisk your egg white in the other!

The bigger 4.8 L, two-tone stainless steel bowl has ergonomic handle for easy lifting. It can knead up to 2 kg of dough or mix 9 dozen cookies(3) in a single batch. The 3 L stainless steel bowl is perfect for smaller jobs, or can add an extra 60 (5 dozen) cookies to your baking session, without having to start all over again. That’s plenty to go around when you’re enjoying family time in the kitchen or entertaining friends. There’s no such thing as too many cookies, after all.

Customise with an extra bowl

Large capacity bowls for big dinner parties

The KitchenAid artisan stand mixer 185 is easy to operate thanks to a lever and speeds of between one and 10, depending on your purpose and the texture of the food being mixed.

The direct drive motor in this tilt-head artisan mixer is steady and reliable, as well as being energy efficient. It is also wonderfully quiet, so you can enjoy your cooking or baking without having your ears hammered with noise. The fact there are two stainless steel bowls – a 4.8 litre and a 3.0 litre – means there’s no need to wash in between mixing different foodstuffs. And, anyway, once you have finished your cooking for the day, both bowls can be popped into the dishwasher, out of sight, ready to be cleaned.

The stainless-steel bowls are large enough so it’s perfectly possible to batch cook with the premium artisan stand mixer 185.
