The KitchenAid Commercial Series eight quart stand mixer has a stainless steel work bowl that can mix 14 cups of flour in a single batch. Three included attachments for whisking, beating and kneading, combined with a 10 speed control, allow the mixer to stir, mix, beat, cream, and whip food items. The stand mixer has a bowl-lift design for accessing the bowl and requires less vertical space than a tilt-head mixer. A heavy-duty metal construction with stainless steel, dishwasher-safe accessories means that this stand mixer is easy and quick to clean.

"I finally decided to purchase the KitchenAid Commercial 7 Qt mixer and then I found the 8 Qt equivalent. The mixer is everything I was looking for and much more. I love the slow start-up on the speeds so that you are less likely to fling the ingredients out of the bowl. It is quieter than my 25 year old KitchenAid and it isn't much bigger, so it doesn't take up much more space on the counter. The first test drive produced 138 chocolate chip cookies in one mixing! KaTom's service was awesome - from my online chat about a few questions, to the speed in which they shipped the product. Couldn't be happier!"
