The Kit

KitchenAid 600 Professional
chenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer with a 575 Watts of power and a large bowl is such a great kitchen appliance. Any kitchen must be designed and made suitable to take large and heavy loads. Since 1919 KitchenAid has taken pride in their tradition of versatility, efficiency, quality and fine craftsmanship. KitchenAid mixers are all about ease of use and a great user experience. The KitchenAid 600 comes with three superbly designed attachments, all made to the highest standards and all guaranteed to enhance the utility of the 600 Series 6 Quart Stand Mixers. These attachments include a wire whip, a flat beater, and a fabulous new spiral dough hook.

The KitchenAid 600 is also referred to as "bowl-lift" model. Professional chefs use these types of stand mixers. The "bowl-lift" model is generally better suited for jobs like mixing dough because this machine does not budge or walk on the kitchen counter. Furthermore, the KitchenAid 600 is the most stable model that KitchenAid manufactures because this stand mixer has two arms that wrap around the mixing bowl and the bowl is secured on heavy duty metal hinge. It uses an easy turn o a lever on the side to raise the bowl into the mixing position and then lowers it back down again.

It is very important to see that your stand mixer has a good number of speeds. And you should be able to easily tell the different speeds the appliance is capable of. This kitchen machine comes with ten distinctly different speeds giving you the flexibility to test out which speed works best for the job at hand. An electronic sensor monitors the speed for these ten speeds. This feature allows the user to match the right speed to the job.

Unique to KitchenAid mixers is the planetary mixing action. This unique feature ensures all ingredients are thoroughly mixed and eliminates frequent bowl scraping. So, whiles the spiral dough hook revolves around the bowl in one direction it spins in the opposite direction and touches 67 different points on the bowl. The dough hook rolls and punches heavy, thick dough with smooth efficiency, but also gives more thorough knead and does it in less time. Basically, spiral dough hook replicates hand-kneading. And the flat beater is designed to for heavy to normal mixtures such as mashed potatoes, cakes, and pies. It is also made so that you can get more complete mix because it touches 67 different points on the bowl and that is what KitchenAid planetary mixing is all about.

When you are using the burnished flat beater use speeds 4 to 8. You should use these speeds for medium weight butters as well. You will use these speeds for about 80 percent of the time. The higher speed is what you are going to use the wire whip with and you should use the lowest speed to eliminate any air bubbles or to use your dough hook. Also, use the slowest speeds for mixing butter, flour for biscuits and scones.

The wire whip is for anything that you are going to make that is fluffy and light such as egg whites, pink cake butter or whipping cream. You do not always have to do large and heavy loads in the KitchenAid 600. Because of the planetary mixing action feature you can mix even one cup of whip cream just as quickly as you can mix thick dough.

This really great kitchen appliance comes with a pouring shield. This cool accessory allows you to add both wet and dry ingredients and keeps them from splashing out. Basically, this is the less mess less stress pouring shield.

The KitchenAid 600 Professional also features the power hub that is located at the front of the stand mixer. This feature allows for the connection of a wide range of attachments such as Pasta Roller and Fettuccini Cutter. The power hub makes this stand mixer a true kitchen center.

The KitchenAid 600 Professional also comes with an instruction manual, so that the user will get useful tips and suggestions, so that he can get the most out of this stand mixer. And this care and use guide also includes a cookbook that guides the user along while using the machine for particular dish. It tells the user which speed to use and for how long.

I definitely recommend the KitchenAid 600 for professional chefs and home cooks.
