The overachiever of the stand mixer family, it has a Flour Power Rating of 14 cups. That means it can mix enough dough for 8 loaves of bread or 13 dozen cookies in a single bowl.
Here are the features:
- Ten mixing speeds allow you to stir, knead, mix, or whip at the velocity appropriate for the recipe; a soft start feature helps prevent ingredient splash-out and flour-puff by starting the mixer slowly before stepping up to the selected speed.
- Planetary mixing action eliminates the need to rotate the bowl and ensures quick, thorough mixing; this efficient mixing action spins the beater clockwise and the shaft counterclockwise, moving the beater to 67 different points within the bowl.
- Three styles of beaters provide you with the right tool for each job. The specially designed flat beater works with the planetary mixing action to thoroughly mix ingredients in every area of the bowl; the flat beater is ideal for mashing potatoes, mixing cakes, quick breads, and cookie dough.
- Professional Wire Whip rapidly increases airflow into egg mixtures for stiff souffles and rigid peaks of meringue; with the planetary mixing action, the wire whip creates silky decorator icings and whips cream as light as air.
- Powerful Spiral Dough Hook replicates hand-kneading with a forceful punching and rolling action to knead thick, heavy doughs.
- 6-quart Stainless Steel Bowl with contoured handle accommodates large batches of heavy dough and thick batter. A pouring shield fits around the bowl and prevents ingredients from splashing out; a chute makes it convenient and easy to add ingredients while mixing.
- Professional Bowl-lift Design includes muscular metal arms for stable mixing and a comfortable bowl-lift lever which raises heavy ingredients into the mixing position.
