A powerful friend in the kitchen
Style can be enticing, but if you also want high performance in a stand mixer, look no further. The Eclectrics Stand Mixer fuses all-metal durability with a history of mixing expertise everyone respects. It’s designed for hands-free mixing for a wide variety of food ranging from light and airy egg whites to sticky bread dough. A powerful 400 Watt motor is great for everyday mixing and can handle the thickest cookie dough. Planetary mixing action gives complete bowl coverage - the mixing head spins as it rotates completely inside the bowl, allowing better mixing than traditional 2-beater stand mixers. There’s no need to stop and scrape ingredients from the side of the bowl. Twelve settings give you maximum versatility and precise control at every speed. Adding ingredients while preparing a recipe is easy; the head tilts up out of the way for bowl access or you can use the pouring shield to add ingredients. Nonslip feet keep the mixer still while in use, and the splatter shield guards against messy drips, drops, and spills. Attachments include a non-stick flat beater, dough hook and whisk. All attachments, as well as the stainless steel 4.5 quart mixing bowl, are dishwasher safe for fast cleanup.
Easy clean up
Easily add ingredients and avoid a mess with the two-piece clear pouring/splatter shield that guards against drips, drops, and spills. Use the shield when making thin batters or mixtures that will splash. All the attachments, bowl, and pouring/splatter shield are dishwasher safe. Each mixer is hand finished, then covered with a protective coating to prevent fingerprints and unsightly smudges. The exterior is easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Key Feature Benefits
Mixing action offers complete bowl coverage
Planetary mixing action means the mixing head orbits around the bowl as the beater rotates in the opposite direction for thorough hands-free mixing of ingredients. This maximizes contact between the bowl and attachment, ensuring complete bowl coverage and better mixing than stand mixers with two beaters. Save time with this mixer, as there is no need to stop and scrape ingredients from the side of the bowl.
All-metal construction is built to last
This mixer combines the built-to-last metal construction of the past with the look of today to bring lasting quality and style to your kitchen. High performance electronics provide constant power for consistent mixing at any speed. Enjoy the confidence you have in a product backed by years of experience and a 3 year warranty. Fill your home with the delicious aroma of homemade recipes this appliance helps you create.
Includes attachments for a variety of mixing jobs
Three attachments offer mixing versatility to any job, from blending to whipping. Use the flat beater attachment to mix cakes, cookie dough, fudge, or potatoes. Kneading dough for bread, pizza or cinnamon rolls? Use the dough hook. The whisk is designed to whip liquids, such as egg whites and cream. This mixer is designed to whisk a minimum of 2 large egg whites or 1 cup of cream. With this minimum amount in the bowl, the tip of the whisk is immersed into the liquid, allowing for enhanced mixer performance. All three attachments are easily secured to the shaft with a simple twist.
Getting the most out of your mixer
Whips cream with ease
The Eclectrics Stand Mixer whips cream very quickly. Watch cream closely during whipping because there are just a few seconds between whipping stages. Look for these characteristics: (1) Begins to thicken: Cream is thick and custard-like (2) Holds its shape: Cream forms soft peaks when whisk is removed. Can be folded into other ingredients when making desserts and sauces (3) Stiff: Cream stands in stiff, sharp peaks when whisk is removed. Use for topping cakes or desserts, or filling for cream puffs.
Mixing cookie dough
Cookie dough is one of the thickest doughs to mix. Make it easier by following these tips: (1) Have butter or margarine at room temperature (2) Add ingredients one at a time, thoroughly mixing after each addition (3) Add flour one cup at a time (4) If the mixer seems to struggle, increase the speed setting.
Chocolate Velvet Layer Cake
2 cups cake flour, 1⁄2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1⁄4 teaspoon salt, 10 tablespoons butter, room temperature, 2 cups light brown sugar, packed, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3⁄4 cup sour cream, and 3⁄4 cup cold brewed coffee
Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a small bowl stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Using flat beater attachment, cream butter and sugar on setting 4. Add eggs 1 at a time beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Reduce speed to setting 2. Add half of flour mixture, then all of sour cream. Add remaining flour mixture. Then slowly pour in coffee. Mix on setting 2 about 30 seconds. Turn off mixer and scrape sides and bottom of bowl. Turn mixer on to setting 4 and mix until thoroughly blended. Divide batter between 2 greased and wax paper lined 9-inch (23x3 cm) round cake pans. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until tests done. Cool in pan for 5 minutes then remove from pans and cool on racks.

Bittersweet Chocolate Frosting
1⁄3 cup (80 ml) butter, room temperature, 21⁄2 cups (625 ml) confectioners sugar, 3⁄4 cup (175 ml) unsweetened baking cocoa, 1⁄4 cup milk, 1 to 2 tablespoons cold brewed coffee, and 1 teaspoon vanilla

Tips for Stand Mixer Use
- Place liquid ingredients in bowl first and then add dry ingredients.
- Always stay near mixer during use.Always stay near mixer during use.
- To begin mixing, use the lower speeds until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. This will reduce splattering.
- Always add ingredients as close to the sides of the bowl as possible, not directly into the moving attachment.
- When preparing package cake mixes, use Speed 2 for low speed, Speed 4 for medium speed, and Speed 6 for high speed. For best results, mix for the time stated on the package directions.
- Mixtures containing large amounts of liquid ingredients should be mixed at lower speeds to avoid splashing. Increase speed only after the mixture has thickened. When mixing thin batters, use medium speeds.

Top customer reviews
The way the top "dips" back makes it possible to change attachments and still clear the cabinet above.
The very first night it arrived, my son and I made a large batch of bread dough, a pound of butter and a large batch of cookies (using the fresh butter). The fact that it automatically adjusts to the thickness of whatever your are mixing is awfully impressive. I read about this in the owner's manual, but watching it in action is pretty cool.
Unlike other reviewers, I had no problems making bread dough. I have to wonder if others might have been using too high a speed? Who knows. I kept it on 2 until the dough climbed the hook perfectly.
Also unlike other reviewers, I've had no problems with it leaving unmixed dough at the bottom of the bowl. If that happens, I'll revise my review.
Finally, unlike other reviewers, I have had no problems with it shaking, smoking, overheating, etc. I think with proper use, this thing works exactly as it's supposed to. That said, I'm glad I have the 3 year warranty just in case.
One more thing -- if you want to use all the KA attachments, you don't want this machine. I have all that other stuff already, and have no desire to attach pasta makers, etc., to this mixer.
Discussion: I resent companies that promote a professional image and then offer a one year warranty, so I bought this instead. Its powerful, but the bowl is just a bit small relative to the motor to keep people like me from overloading it. It walks a little on the counter. You can turn your back on it, but don't leave the room. Unless you are a homesteader type user, it's plenty.
Alternatives: I thought the Bosch machines (400w and a 800w haymaker) looked good. No way would my wife accept a plastic bowl, though. On the lower end, the sunbeam heritage mixer is nearly as powerful, and considerably cheaper in that hotly competitive segment.
Pros: good relative value for a high end machine.
Powerful. Can do a double batch of whole wheat bread no problem.
Cons: still not cheap. Poor selection of bizarre and costly attachments compared to the competition.
Really, there should be a good no name knockoff of these things. But what are you going to do? Chicks just don't dig shopping at harbor freight.
The only complaint is there's not very much torque at low speeds. I'm often lazy and don't bother bringing the butter to room temperature, and this mixer struggles to get through the cold butter at the lowest speed. Then again, I can turn it up a notch, and it powers on through.
Does fine making dough with a bread hook. Fast enough to whisk egg whites properly.
I don't much like the plastic shield, it makes it difficult to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Instead, I used a 1/2 cup to add ingredients without lifting the top. A full cup doesn't quite fit without clanging against the top. There's enough of a gap to be able to add eggs without the shield. If I were making something really splattery, I'd use the shield I suppose.
I had to fiddle with the bowl height. There was too much of a gap between the beater and the bowl. I unscrewed the stainless steel base, with three screws, inserted three metal washers, and screwed them back in. Only a small adjustment, but it helped a lot.
