The KitchenAid® Professional 6500 Design Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer features a powerful, 1.0 HP Motor. Horsepower for our mixer motors was measured using a dynamometer, a machine laboratories routinely use to measure the mechanical power of motors. Our 1.0 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 .4 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.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Not a fan

Submitted by LCH1 - 7/4/2019

I bought this mixer a little over a year ago via QVC and I wish I had returned it. The glass bowl design does not allow for proper mixing. I have to manaullay stir the bottom because the wisk and other attachments cannot reach the bottom of the bowl. (And yes I've tried adjusting it several times) .... I've never had the metal bowl but would be curious to know if it comes with the same issue.

I love my new machine I wish it had more clearance for release blending out of bowl. I have to drop blender in the mixture. That the only dislike.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this mixer!

Submitted by Paula S. - 6/19/2019

I purchased this a few months ago and love it. It has been easy to use, the attachments are also amazing. I can't say enough positive things about this mixer! I will say the bowl the first time I was trying to set it on the arms was a bit scary since the bowl is glass. Now that I have the hang of it, it's a snap!

It's like having someone help you bake cookies!

Submitted by Crispin M. - 5/8/2019

I had been debating this purchase for about 4 months. After being inspired some time ago by the Great British Baking Show, I started baking cookies and using a hand held mixer. I finally got the top of the line stand mixer and now I'm unstoppable! I'm having great fun and my friends and family are delighted!

Can only use 5 minutes at a time!

Submitted by Kitchenaidhasfallen - 3/13/2019

Per Kitchenaid after I called. I had my bread dough kneading on the lowest setting for 10 minutes and I smelled baby powder and my mixer was smoking. I called Kitchenaid and they said that you can only use any of their mixers for 5 minutes at a time. It is not written anywhere in the manual or on the box. But it's a sneaky way to get out of their warranty. I asked that my concerns about them hiding this be forwarded to a supervisor and haven't heard back.

It's a Wonder!!

Submitted by xladyheart - 1/31/2019

My heart has always been with Kitchen Aide and this mixer truly will be my last one. I have the 4 1/2 qt. and the 5 1/2 qt. from when they came out in the 90's. The power is almost like a mixer I would use at work. I am a pastry chef....I also cook. I truly love the glass bowl!

Disappointment

Submitted by luie - 8/21/2018

KitchenAid has been a household name associated with durability and great workmanship. When I replaced my 21 year old mixer (only to upgrade for more horsepower and a bigger bowl, I was elated). I am a sporadic cook and do not routinely use the mixer, but when I do several times a year it had been proudly used. I have never had an ounce of trouble with my original mixer I got as a 1st anniversary present 32 years ago which I must say still is performing like a champion. My upgraded new "professional series mixer" I purchased after reading false selling points looks beautiful, but one day I began noticing a high pitched whining sound and then an oily residue began to drip into the mixing bowl ruining my food! When I called customer service to inquire thinking they would stand behind their product for lubricant leakage, I was informed this happens because the bearings/gears of the machine if not run on a routine basis THE LUBRICANT looses its viscosity and breaks down causing metal on metal to occur - hence the high pitch and thus leakage. I never heard of this as my 30 yr old KitchenAid stand tilt head mixer has had similar usage and has never had bearings/ lubricant leakage. It was estimated that it would cost approx. $250.00 to ship and repair what was potentially deemed wrong from this phone diagnostic, or I could replace the mixer for a new one paying $359.00 for a valued $750.00. How about the $400.00 I spent on the practically new one purchased 11 yrs ago that failed miserably, really? An inferior product is an inferior product. I never heard of bearings deteriorating from not using it enough to impact lubricants viscosity. If that is the case, why is this critical information not published in the owners manual???????? Important point don't you think? If hassle free replacement for unknown unavoidable lubricant leakage can only be replaced under the warrantee, then don't ever buy an expensive mixer to use unless your a gourmet cook and use it until it dies from usage. Very disappointed. I have always intentionally purchased KitchenAid products dishwashers, mixers, food processors because I truly believed they were built to last and was never disappointed until now. Guess like everything else "for the way made its made" is just a mere selling slogan that truly now means nothing.

Worked fine but didn't lasted long

Submitted by Finitah - 6/12/2018

I have the artisan stand mixer for over 7 years now and still going strong. I got this model last year because I needed a bigger bowl and the first 2 came defective and customer service was able to assist and fix the issue but now is just simply not working and is a very spensive product to last just a year
