Although the Waring's capacities appear respectable for the price, it's-
- Made in China
- Utilizes a cogged belt drive
- Does not appear to have a horizontal drive port for accessories like meat grinders.
I'm making do with a 1950's KitchenAid 4C sold under the Montgomery Ward label. I use the 4C with several accessories that fit the KA's horizontal drive.
For heavier tasks I use a 750 watt / 1 HP Waring Big Stik (WSB50) variable speed immersion blender with a 12" shaft.
Most all of our breads are made in smaller batches by hand in a 5.5 Litre bowl.

From what I've read, the Waring does have the horizontal drive port in the front, it is just hidden behind a more decorative door. The entire top section is hinged, and there is another port for a blender attachment. They don't sell Waring branded accessories, but they do sell them under the Cuisinart brand. There is a meat grinder, pasta maker, juicer, blender etc..

The Cuisinart is rated at 1000 watts, and the Waring commercial is 850 watts (I don't put much stock in this number). I wonder if the Waring has a different more robust motor (it's rated at 1 HP, where the Cusinart doesn't have HP rating in any description that I've seen)? The Waring is also rated NSF.

One horsepower = 736 watts so a 1000 watt motor would be about 1 1/3 HP.

If that 1000 watt rating was accurate, I would think that Cuisinart, Viking, etc.. would brag about it.

Don't forget that there is inefficiency in the motor and that could really be only 1HP.

Funny, my N50 is rated at only 1/6 horsepower, which looks a lot like not much. But it's speed is not controlled by a rheostat, like other counter top mixers. The motor turns at a constant speed, and the mixing speed is governed by a 3 speed planetary transmission. Turn it off to shift gears...no clutch. Doesn't seem to matter how much of what I put in it, it just goes and goes and goes...

This is an interesting read regarding single phase A/C electric motors. It is geared towards power tools, but it is still applicable.

I've used that mixer in a vocational cooking school, it was awesome, seemed unstoppable! We also had a 5 qt. kitchenaid and it was a good machine, but not nearly as sturdy and robust as the Hobart.
