The power hub turns your stand mixer into a culinary center. With more than 12 optional attachments use the power of your stand mixer to help you make fusilli pasta from scratch, shred a block of parmesan cheese in seconds and so much more.

4.5-Qt. Stainless Steel Bowl

The 4.5-Qt stainless steel bowl offers enough capacity to mix dough for 6 dozen cookies, 3 loaves of bread or 6 pounds of mashed potatoes in a single batch. The bowl is also dishwasher-safe for quick and easy cleanup.

59-Point Planetary Mixing Action

59-Point Planetary Mixing Action means 59 touchpoints per rotation around the bowl for thorough ingredient incorporation. The beater, dough hook or wire whip rotates around the bowl, giving incredible bowl coverage for comprehensive mixing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Couldn't be happier I have always wanted a kitchenaid mixer, and when I got this, I felt like the happiest person in the world. It is so easy to use, works great, looks beautiful...exceeds all my expectations. I love to bake, and this makes baking even more fun for me. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking into getting a mixer. June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features I have only had occasion to use this mixer 3 times now , since it is summer , and I don't like to run the oven when it is 100 degrees. The first time I used it was to make ginger cookies , and it mixed them far better than I could , and thus had superior results. I have since used it for breads that I don't get locally ,( my reason for buying it ) , and was very pleased with the fine texture . I notice Alton Brown uses one a lot , and bought it since it seems to do such a good job , and saves the arms . June 25, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my KitchenAid I have wanted a KitchenAid stand mixer for myself ever since I moved out of my parents' house. It is still a great item, and it works wonderfully. June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wife says it's the best she's ever used. My kids and I bought this for my wife as a Christmas gift. She had been wanting one for as long as we had been married but I couldn't afford it til now. After getting it she was very excited but left it packed and in the box for almost 6 months. Once she finally unpacked it to use it she was beyond happy with it. We had to play with it for a little bit to learn about it. Like changing attachments and she made me read the usage instructions. Once she started to use it she said that it beat ordinary hand mixers hands down. She said the mixing time was a lot shorter and did a so much better job. The cake she made with it was something new but it seemed to me that the consistency of the cake was so much better. I think she would highly recommend this to anyone that needed a good mixer. After she used it she had me put it back in the box just like it had come out because she said that she didn't want it to get dusty. Now I have to make her a stand just for this mixer. June 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Great machine After I hinted around for several years my husband finally bought me one. I enjoy the ease of use and the quality, but it doesn't have the features that my old Sunbeam mixer had, which I miss. I was disappointed the bowl has to lock in place, when I have ALWAYS been one to turn my bowl as I mix. My old mixer had a free-rotating bowl plate. I would have also preferred a glass bowl instead of the stainless steel. Lastly, the weight of the mixer makes it impossible for me to pick up. So I can't easily move it to the pantry shelf when I'm not using it. Overall, the quality is excellent, but this model is very basic and lacks in innovative features. June 28, 2013
