  • Introducing the largest, most powerful – and quietest – KitchenAid mixer we've ever offered. With a generous 7-qt. capacity, this machine equips home bakers with a full range of high-performance commercial features for fast, efficient mixing and quality results. Commercial design includes a bowl lift and heavy-duty metal knobs. 1.3-horsepower motor delivers robust mixing and kneading with surprisingly quiet operation. Planetary action allows attachments to spin independently while making continual rotations around the bowl for thorough mixing. Ten speeds range from very slow stirring to very high beating. Polished 7-qt. cap. stainless-steel bowl with comfort handle. Professional whip with 11 stainless-steel wires operates 33% more quickly than typical whips for optimal aeration of egg whites or cream. Commercial power hub works with all KitchenAid attachments. Hand assembled in Greenville, Ohio, home of KitchenAid since 1919. Includes wire elliptical whip and a flat beater and dough hook. Makes up to 14 dozen cookies or 8lbs of dough. All metal gears and touch points are built to last and backed by a 2 year total replacement warranty. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

    Pros - even mixing, large batches, never feels too big for even 1 batch of cookies
    Cons - expensive, have to buy theb7 qt paddle with scraper, only at William Sonoma
    I kept jumping back and forth from the 5 qt artisan, 6qt professional, and the 7qt professional, and even considered the cuisinart.  I lierally spent 5 years researching and debating this since I felt guilty spending so much money on one kitchen appliance. I am so so happy with my 7qt mixer... I would marry it if I wasnt already married. It is beautiful and takes up the same amount of space on the counter as the rest since you shouldnt have everything touching on the counter anyway.  It doesnt even flinch with 3 batches of bread or 4 batches of cookies... If your debating, go with the 7qt... you wont ever be sorry to have the extra capacity

    Pros - Much smoother batter

    Received this mixer as a wedding gift. Absolutely loved it. I bought one for my mother and grandmother. Now, I have much smoother batter. I used this for everything. Cakes, pies, mashed potatoes and much much more. This is an absolute much have. :D

    Pros - Powerful, quiet, adaptable
    Cons - $$$
    Sometimes I wish I had this at work instead of my Hobart.  I've done everything with it, filled sausages, turned dough, everything.  I love this machine.

    A comparison with similar commercial models, e.g. Hamilton-Beach 7qt., would help others in making a purchase decision: more practical cons, etc.

    If you had to choose between the KA 7 Qt and the Hamilton-Beach 7 Qt. selling for <$550 shipped, what would you decide? What are your thoughts re: Hamilton-Beach and Waring professional mixers in terms of quality, durability & function? Thanks.
