The KitchenAid Professional 600 is a real workhorse mixer, ideal for home chefs who make large quantities of bread, potatoes, meat, pasta, desserts, ice cream and more. The KitchenAid Pro 600 has a 6-qt. bowl and a 575-watt motor, larger than the 4.5-quart bowl and 275-watt motor in the popular KitchenAid Classic mixer, and also larger than the 5-qt. bowl and 325-watt motor in the KitchenAid Pro 500. The efficient motor in the KitchenAid 600 features a direct drive transmission for power and all-metal gears for durability.
The KitchenAid mixer 600 is ideal for heavy, dense mixtures, with its stable bowl-lift design, ten speeds, and 67-point beater-to-bowl planetary blending action that mixes evenly. The KitchenAid 6-qt. mixer bowl can handle recipes that use up to 14 cups of flour; for instance, 13 dozen cookies or 8.5 loaves of bread in a single batch. Plus, the KitchenAid 600 has both an auto shutoff feature and a soft-start feature that starts the mixer at a lower speed to help keep the ingredients contained in the bowl.
Consider where you'll be using the KitchenAid 600 series mixer and measure the space where you plan to store it. Since this mixer is 16.5" high and weighs around 32 pounds you should measure to ensure it will fit on your cabinet or pantry shelf.
