With a 1.3 HP motor and eight quart work bowl, this KitchenAid stand mixer has the capabilities to mix 13 dozen cookies in a single batch. A motor-reset safety feature protects the unit from damage due to overloading, while an adjustable beater height allows the user to get maximum beater-to-bowl coverage without scraping and potentially damaging the bowl. The stand mixer exterior is wipe-clean, with a safety feature to prevent the mixer from being accidentally turned on, and the dough hook, whip, and flat beater, and work bowl are dishwasher-safe for quick and simple cleanup.

Kitchenaid KSM8990OB Customer Reviews
"The only "complaint" I have about this product is that it is difficult to align the the holes in the bowl to the prongs on the stand; it takes quite a bit of torque to get it to fit right. Other than that, I love this mixer. Very simple to use and gets the job done quickly."
