The Pro is too big for really small jobs, so I have a cheapo hand mixer for those.

I have the pasta attachment, too

Kitchenaid makes great products.


One of your big K'Aid mixer's rubber feet are probably missing?

Yeah, I did the same thing! My K'Aid mixer sits out on the portable dishwasher and it's always ready at a moment's notice for medium to big mixing jobs.

But I'm thinking; Why use it for everything, even though it can handle the small mixing jobs also? So I bought an elcheapo no-name small hand mixer from Walmart to handle small little tiny jobs, like making instant pudding, beating two or three egg whites, etc..

I'm going to get the accessories pack which has several attachments for the K'Aid mixer soon. I want to try my hand at making pasta, which I've never done yet. It's funny though. I had the K'Aid mixer for close to 20 years and have not bought one accessory for it yet other than an extra 4.5-qt stainless steel bowl w/ handle, the 3-qt. stainless steel bowl and the K'Aid mixer cover!

Nothing that requires the use of the front power drive socket yet.

There are five on mine, but since your K'Aid mixer is larger than mine is, you might have more rubber feet on yours.

Mine is the K45SS Classic.

Question

Does your mixer have all of its rubber feet?

Mine is a Sunbeam and I only use it once in a while. It isn't heavy, but I keep it in the appliance part of my pantry, so usually use a hand mixer rather than get it out. It does the job well when I use it.

That one had something to do with the Breast Cancer Foundation, I think.

When you bought the mixer, I believe that a small portion of your money went to finding or inventing a cure for breast cancer.

I picked up a brand new KA Pro 6 for $280 with shipping the other day. It should be here by the 3rd. I've been anxiously tracking it on the UPS site. I would have gotten the pink Susan Kamen Foundation one if I could have gotten it in a lift-stand. Instead I got a remainder Empire Green, which matches my kitchen.

That's a tilt-head mixer. The one I bought lifts the bowl to the beaters via a lever.
