Kitchen aid stand mixers

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

Thanks to everyone who responded to my questions and comments on Kitchen Aid stand mixers. Another question: What Kitchen Aid Mixer do you recommend for a new baker?

I like the 500/ 5 quart. I will be doing about 3 to 4 cakes a week, some breads, and I want to learn fondant. And of course bowls of frosting and cookies.

And finally what volume do you bake: 2 or 3 times a week, or every day??

Replies needed. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

I use the Kitchen Aid Pro Series – I think my bowl is the 5 quart bowl. I haven’t made fondant in it – but it does have the dough hook which would make the fondant for me! I usually just make my icings in stand mixer and use a hand mixer for my cake batters – it gives me a better “feel” of the texture of the cake batter when I do it by hand.

Hope that helps!

I have the 6qt professional mixer. I love it. I am so glad I got it and keep my 4.5qt one for royal icing only. I bake at least once a week. Sometimes more.
