KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer K45SS Review
The classic mixer from kitchen aid is a very simple yet very effective food mixer designed with all home baking, dinner hosting lovers in mind. It is the perfect kitchen companion if baking is a hobby you have. It comes with all the efficient features that any home-based chef would need to have in order to make happen those heavenly pastries found in recipe books. It is efficient and easy to use if you are just starting out.
This Kitchen Aid food mixer comes in the traditional design most mixers have but with a beautiful stylish twist to it. It has a small body and a mixing bowl that is much larger than the body and together these make for a beautifully robust mixer. Its total net weight goes a little over ten kilo grams and as a result poses difficulty if one intends on changing the placing of the mixer in the kitchen frequently. This will require one to find a fixed space for it on the kitchen counter top; a space that will be long term.
Even with its body being significantly hefty, this Classic mixer is still quite petit in size and packs a much smaller motor. The size of the motor translates to lesser noise and fewer vibration levels which is good for a small kitchen. Unfortunately, the size of the motor also means that the engine for this mixer is not as powerful as what one would find in other mixers in the market. The rating for this motor stand at a humble 275 Watts, but even with this power behind it, it is still able to mix up dough as well as batters to the correct consistency. We definitely would not want to have our kitchen overwhelmed by the sound of a bigger motor. Despite the delicate and petit size, this food mixer does not have trouble incorporating more ingredients into a mix. It can mix up an excellent bread dough or pastry mix of up to 12 egg whites without much trouble.
The body is built from plastic but is surprisingly sturdy and quite durable. It can withstand everyday use for a large period of time; having a useful time that is good return for your investment. Besides its durability, this mixer sports some of the latest most innovative tricks and features in food equipment. The mixing tool, for example, moves separately from the attaching socket allowing the tool to go through the entire mix for thorough mixing and better consistency. This is especially important when making cake mixes because this is the only way to achieve the perfect sponge for your cake.
This 11 kg mixer comes with a 4.3 bowl for holding the ingredients to be mixed. It also comes with a metal whisk, a beater and a dough hook. The bowl is designed like most other mixing bowls except for the lack of handles which makes it relatively hard to remove batter from beneath the mixer.
