Unlike the Cuisinart Precision Stand Mixer, which features a tilt-head design, the KitchenAid Pro Line Stand Mixer features a bowl-lift design. That is, you press the bowl against the handles and then lift it into position by twisting the mixer’s side lever. This lever is located on the opposite side of the control dial, making it difficult to access unless the mixer is used face-on.
The lever does lift and secure the bowl into place with ease, and the 7-quart bowl itself is very well-sized to allow space for generous batches without compromising on the quality of the mixing you’ll get for smaller batches.
The KitchenAid Pro Line Stand Mixer includes a splash guard that fits over the bowl and allows you to pour ingredients in a while mixing without splashing batter or flour all over your kitchen.
Additionally, a stainless steel 11-wire whip with an oval shape reaches the bowl’s sides when mixing. Additionally, a stainless steel dough hook and a coated flat beater are included. They have a substantial and high-quality feel.
Compared to other large-capacity mixers, the KitchenAid Pro Line is versatile enough to handle everything from two egg whites to large batches of dough.
The 7-quart bowl is large enough to hold up to 16 cups flour, 8 pounds of dough, and 14 dozen cookies, which is more than enough food for an average family. This type of machine enables you to bake multiple batches of bread simultaneously for freezing or giving away to friends and family.
With a 1.3 horsepower motor, this is KitchenAid’s most powerful model. Note that the 1.3 number refers to the engine, which delivers.44 horsepower to the bowl.
This is a tremendously powerful motor capable of handling virtually any mixing task you throw at it.
Despite some reservations about KitchenAid mixers’ capacity to handle large batches of thick dough, users report that they efficiently managed large batches that were kneaded for extended periods.
Unlike many other mixers with powerful motors, the Pro-Line offers ten distinct speeds for precise control of your food’s mixing process.
With this range, you can quickly knead bread dough slowly or whip egg whites at high speeds.
This model is quieter than any other KitchenAid model despite the potent motor, including the highly-rated 6 Quart Professional 600 Series.
Although you may believe that noise is irrelevant if it means a robust, durable motor, a quiet machine can be a significant benefit if you use your mixer frequently.
Now, you won’t have to shout when your children inquire about the progress of the cookies you’re baking (although you still can).
All of the attachments for the KitchenAid Pro Line Stand Mixer are dishwasher safe, which is a convenient feature given how fiddly whisks and flat beaters can clean by hand. It saves a lot of time and effort, especially for those who take their baking seriously, to use a dishwasher after the food is prepped.
Should you buy KitchenAid 7-Quart Pro Line Stand Mixer?
Not everyone will be a fan of the KitchenAid Pro Line Stand Mixer. To begin, it is pretty large and heavy. It fits beneath my kitchen counters but has significantly less clearance than the standard KitchenAid Artisan. Additionally, some will prefer the tilt-head design, which looks slightly more attractive than a bowl-lift mixer and makes attachments easily accessible for quick switches.
However, home chefs and those who frequently bake should strongly consider the KitchenAid Pro Line Stand Mixer. It’s a low-maintenance mixer that does the heavy lifting for you with little intervention required. If you’re looking for a kitchen assistant, this is our top pick.
