We purchased this to replace a 15 year old 5.5 quart KitchenAid "Professional" series lift mixer. Cooking for a family of six (two kiddos, two in-laws), not to mention batches of play dough for the preschool, were challenging the capacity of the old mixer, which has otherwise been 100% dependable over all these years.

The biggest surprise was the compact size of the 8 quart mixer: it's not much bigger than the unit it replaced. The large stainless steel mixing bowl, once mounted in place, is certainly wider by a few inches, and the depth of the unit is also a few inches greater, but the height is nearly unchanged (just a hair under 17 inches), as is the weight. The expectation that we would sacrifice a great amount of counter space for this extra capacity never came to fruition.

Whereas the old unit, while operating at higher speeds, emitted a medium pitch whine reminiscent of my mom's '70's era electric beater, this mixer hums along with the quiet, even-tone of a well-built gear reduction drive. It has a welcome "soft start" feature, rather than jerking to action. Nothing inside is working too hard, or spinning too fast. My wife and I both spent time around Hobart commercial grade floor-stand mixers, and no, this small KitchenAid isn't at all like those beasts, but in operation it evokes memories of an appliance designed to that standard.

The bowl seems about the same gauge of stainless steel as what we had on the 5.5 quart model, which is to say, don't drop it -- a lightly dented mixing bowl is all kinds of nuisance. This one takes two hands and quite a bit of firm force to snap the rear "ball" into the spring clip. Don't be shy about it: if you try to insert the ball first, then align with the two retention posts on the side arms, you'll have a fit.

I just received my new Kitchenaid 8 quart and made a quadruple batch of my favorite bread. This requires 4 pounds of flour, or about 14+ cups. The motor didn't break a sweat. I noticed slight complaining when the last of flour was getting mixed in, and the dough did ride up the kneading hook somewhat (to be expected). The top of the mixer was not even warm after 5 minutes of kneading. Motor is very quiet compared to the smaller Kitchenaids. Clearly this is no sissy mixer.

The attachments are very solid heavy metal (and HUGE), the kneading hook is the screw kind that I prefer. Unlike the screw hook that comes with the 6 quart, this one looks to be stainless and I think it could take the dishwasher although I haven't tried it (The 6 quart kneading hook could not be placed in the dishwasher). The other nice thing is that my 6 quart bowl fits on this 8 quart mixer.

I had my 6 quart Kitchenaid for 4 1/2 years, and a slight increase of my usual batch (2 pounds of flour) caused it to seize up and die (was beyond repair). So I wanted to know right away whether this one could handle more and I was glad to see it can. I did not want to pay $2200 for a Hobart so was glad to see Kitchenaid is now making a solid robust commercial model. Of course time will tell how well it is built and made to last. For now though, I am very happy with this mixer after the first use performance.

I purchased this mixer very recently, to stand in for my older KitchenAid commercial mixer, which I am going to send out for a tune up and an oil change. Today was actually the first day I've used it for bread (I made cakes earlier in the week). For my bread recipe, which includes bread flour and whole wheat flour, I used it to combine, and do the initial kneading, which it did competently. My bread dough recipe is rather stiff, and the mixer showed some signs of slowing a bit (on speed two, which is the recommended speed for kneading). After nearly two minutes of kneading, I removed the bowl from the mixer, and finished the initial kneading by hand on my bread board. I have never been one to do bread by machine fully anyway, as I not only like, but also enjoy working with the dough. I performed the second kneading fully by hand.

In short, this mixer is really very good, for capacity purposes, in mixing cakes, cooky dough, creaming butter and sugar, and just about any type of mixing chore you have. I do believe I will enjoy using this machine for quite some time to come. If you do make a bread with just regular all purpose white flour, I do not think you will have any problem. If you do make breads with bread flour which is high-protein flour, and with whole wheat or rye flours, then you have to watch it, so that you do not strain your machine.

JUST SO THAT YOU KNOW, A FEW POINTERS DIRECTLY FROM THE MANUAL:
The manual states that "Under heavy loads with extended mixing time periods, you may not be able to comfortably touch the top of the Stand Mixer. This is normal."

The manual also states that "Our 1.3 horsepower motor... delivers .44 HP to the bowl...

So far I have used this machine to make several cakes, mix many pounds of meat mixtures and prepare large quantities of tuna salad for a pot luck dinner.
The machine is cool running, quiet and gives the impression that it is unstoppable.
I love it.
This replaces a five quart machine that I wore out after thirty years of heavy use.
I have purchased two six quart bowls (KN2B6PEH) for smaller quantities, easier scrape downs and the convenience of bowl swapping. They fit well and work beautifully as does the eight quart bowl.
The slow start feature is something that I had not considered when I purchased the mixer but it has proven to be one of the most useful features. I have not accidentally sprayed myself with dry flour since I started baking with it. Good job, KitchenAid!
