Before going into details, here is what you’ll get in the box:
- 1 unit KitchenAid Professional 600 stand mixer

Stainless Steel Bowl
- It features a 6-quart stainless steel bowl that yields 13 dozens of cookies, 8 ¼ loaves of bread, and 8 pounds of mashed potato. This is one advantage of stand mixer as it can accommodate huge or larger quantities or contents, which will save you time and energy.
- This machine operates starting from the 575-watt motor that directly sends power to the unit through a direct-drive transfer that furthers the energy-saving feature of this machine.
10 Mixing Speeds
- KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer is equipped with ten mixing speeds that you can control via the speed control knob located on the motor head. One can easily run through the ten mixing speeds by simply sliding the lever smoothly on the knob. While there may be 10 speeds, only the STIR, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 markers are indicated on the control. The several speeds offer versatility and efficiency in mixing either wet or dry ingredients.
- The “STIR” function is primarily used to begin with in all mixing procedures. This is used for stirring, combining or mashing. For example is adding liquids to dry ingredients. Next is speed number “2” or slow mixing. The number 2 speed is intended for slow mixing or mashing and faster stirring just like when you mix and knead yeast dough. The number “4” speed, on the other hand, is used for mixing or beating including semi-heavy batters.
- The speed number “6” is utilized for medium-fast beating or creaming. The “8” speed is used for fast beating or whipping, for example egg whites and cream. Lastly, the speed number “10” is usually used for fast whipping.
