With a choice of ten speeds and three attachments--flat beater, spiral dough hook, and stainless-steel wire whip--the mixer handles everything from egg whites to meat loaf to pizza dough. Rather than rotating the bowl, KitchenAid stand mixers feature a fixed bowl with a unique mixing action: the beater spins clockwise as the shaft spins counter-clockwise, thus projecting the beater to 67 different points inside the 5-quart stainless-steel bowl. In deference to its power, the Soft-Start feature prevents splashing and flour clouds by gearing up to each speed gradually; then the electronic speed sensor kicks in to maintain a constant speed even when mixing the thickest batter. The bowl features a handle as well as two pins that hook into the lifting mechanism, which consists of a solid metal arm the same color as the mixer and a stainless-steel lever. A hinged attachment hub makes changing attachments easy. For safety, the mixer shuts down if an object obstructs the mixing process or if overloading occurs. The bowl, beater, and dough hook are dishwasher-safe. Assembled in Ohio, the mixer measures 16-1/2 by 12 by 14 inches and is backed by a hassle-free, one-year warranty. --Ann Bieri

I embarked on the research about which model was going to be best for my kitchen. At first, I was very attracted to the Artisan Series, liking the looks and color choices available. But I discovered this series featured a smaller motor (375-425 watt) and bowl capacity. After discussing this with a couple of chef's I know, I came away determined to buy the 5 Plus 5. With its larger 450 watt motor and deeper larger 5 quart mixing bowl, I knew it could stand up to the heavy use it got in my kitchen.
When it arrived, I unpacked it and after reading the instruction book thoroughly, set it up in literally seconds. This is a very big small appliance. I fortunately, have huge counter space, so I set it up under the cabinets within reach. For anyone having limited counter space or limited use for this model, a smaller machine might be a better choice.
Performance: This is a real workhorse of a stand mixer. It whips egg whites and heavy cream quickly and easily. The balloon whisk is ideal for use with dishes which require that a lot of air be incorporated into the mixture you're creating.
The spiral dough hook does a fantastic job with kneading doughs for breads, biscuits, pie crusts and rolls. This is a fairly quiet machine that doesn't rock or shake when working with larger batches of batter.
The mixing paddle is perfect for blending cake batters, or whipping mashed potatoes, or one of a hundred cooking tasks requiring mixing.Read more ›
One especially great thing is the slow-start feature--I do a lot of cake batter and icings, and it's nice to avoid getting flour all over the cabinets after each round of mixing. It mixes very thoroughly, although I was initially suspicious since the bowl doesn't rotate. You do have to stop and scrape the bowl, as with any mixer.
The machine is also incredibly quiet--it makes less noise than the microwave does. I like the fact that the bowl and white attachments are dishwasher safe, too. It might seem trivial, but I also like the styling of the wider bowl that comes standard with this model, instead of the narrower one that comes with the Artisan.
At first I thought the bowl-lift thing might be uncomfortable to use, since I'm used to tilt-head stand mixers. The bowl has two tabs with holes that fit on either side of the mixer, plus a metal nub that rests in a slot at the back. Once those three points are secure, you rotate the lever to lift the bowl to mixing position, and it's very stable.
I've only found two minor inconveniences with this machine. First, it's pretty tall, so it won't fit on the counter underneath my cabinets--I have to move it back and forth from another shelf to use it, and it's heavy. Second, when you're done mixing and lower the bowl, it's hard to scrape all the stuff off the beater because you can't get a good angle. So you have to detach the beater and let it fall into the bowl and when the bowl is off the mixer you can scrape everything out.Read more ›
The mixer "seems" (see below) to be well made. The fit and finish of external parts is excellent. When tightened with vigor, the tightening nob that holds excessories like a grinder (which works very well) in place, no longer falls into the mixing bowl while something is being mixed.
Kitchenaid has an exceptional warrangy. You need only call Kitchenaid, explain the problem and they send a new mixer and prepaid labels to return the defectve mixer. Definitely retain the box the mixer arrives in.
On the negative side:
Mine is the third KV25GOXCV I have had following the return of a proceeding model with a smaller motor. All were returned because the sound made by the mixer suggested that the gearing was self-destructing. All emitted uneven grinding sounds, especially when operating at mid-range speeds. It suggests that the gears were poorly machined and were wearing badly and would fail before long. (The gearing in my last Kitchenaid stand mixer lasted 15 years before it had to be rebuilt after which, the mixer was given to my son who is still using it.)
My present mixer makes the same troubling transmission sounds but after having had three others that made those same sounds, I concluded that Kitchenaid cannot do any better.
When mixing doughs approaching the mixer's maximum capacity, the dough rides up the dough hook and must be dragged back down before mixing can again proceed normally. It must be done every 30 seconds or so.
Do not plan to mix any stiff doughs that an older recipe (nonKitchenaid recipe) suggests mixing for longer than 3 or 4 minutes. If you do, the mixer will overheat and automatically shut off until it cools.Read more ›
