KitchenAid NSF Certified Commercial Series 8-Qt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer with 1.3 HP Motor1* *Motor horsepower for our mixer motors was measured using a dynamometer, a machine laboratories routinely use to measure the mechanical power of motors. Our 1.3 horsepower (HP) motor reference reflects the horsepower rating of the motor itself and not the mixer’s horsepower output to the mixer bowl. This robust motor, the backbone of our new mixer, delivers .44 HP to the bowl enabling your mixer to deliver consistent power to small and large loads with less heat build-up; resulting in years of dependable mixing. When combined with and guided by our new advanced motor control board, this is our longest lasting and most efficient motor yet. Simply put, our new, highly efficient, special purpose motor delivers the power you need when you need it.

One thing to note: In the box is this weird shaped rectangle thing. Its not mentioned in the manual, so I called and found out that its a chute to add ingredients through the protective cage.
While I understand the reason for the orange power cord it's not exactly a color that fits in well with most kitchens. It's very long, which is nice, but it does stand out against our gray granite countertops.
This machine is big. It does not slide under our upper cabinets but will fit under them if I tilt it then bring it upright once it's under. Since it's a lift bowl style rather than a tilt head it can be used like this without a problem.
One of the best things about this mixer is the soft start. My artisan mixer would get flour all over but this mixer starts slowly enough to prevent messes. Even with black painted cabinets I seldom have to clean up flour dust. It also changes speeds softly. If you accidentally bump the slider you have a moment or two or put it back, it won't suddenly be going at full speed.
The paddle and dough hook work as they should. The spiral hook is a vast improvement on the small hook that comes with the artisan mixer (the mixer I upgraded from). The whisk is great. It makes fantastic merengue in just a couple minutes. Attachments work well. I make quick work of 50lbs of roasted apples with the applesauce/tomato strainer attachment.
Overall I'm happy with this purchase. When I first got it I thought I had made a mistake and should have gone with the six quart instead. Now that I'm used to it I'm glad I have the extra size, power, and features of the 8 quart commercial version. The fact that it's made in the USA just makes it that much better

Golda's kitchen is also amazing. Super fast delivery, reasonable price for such a heavy unit.
