Questions & Answers
QuestionIf you don't tilt the mixer back, how do you get the bowl out? I looked one at a different store, and it seemed you had to take the attachment out before the bowl could slide out. Seems messy!
- Answer There is a lever on the right hand side that allows you to raise and lower the bowl. You lower the bowl and then it lifts right out.
- Answer I certainly hope the bowl lifter version is not being discontinued! I consider that to be an indispensable feature on my decades old Pro Line mixer with a 7 quart bowl. If it ever dies it will definitely be replaced with another bowl lifter model. The bowl lifter feature attaches the bowl very rigidly to the lifter frame, ensuring rock solid stability during use with simple detachment when done. My mixer, like many others mentioned in these posts, Was too tall to fit under our 1970's vintage kitchen cabinets when we first bought it. So when we remodeled several years later an important spec was clearance between counter top and upper cabinet bottoms. We specified this at 1/2 inch greater that the height of the mixer. We never store the mixer on the counter top but the clearance is handy when we need to push the mixer back out of the way temporarily during food preparation. The mixer is stored in a large floor-to-ceiling pantry cabinet with four shallow slide-out drawers in the bottom section. Height from the top of the top drawer to the bottom rail of the upper cabinet is, you guessed it, 1/2 inch greater than the height of the mixer. Making the height of the mixer any less than it is would definitely sacrifice utility of the machine.
- Answer Not sure what one your looking at but I ordered the pro5plus that claimed bowl lift and tilt head and it was only bowl lift when I received it.
QuestionCan I use a standard mixing bowl with this model? That way I don't have to wash the bowl that comes with ro mix the frosting or something else
- Answer No. An ordinary bowl would not work with this mixer. The manufacturer bowl is designed with fittings on the side that secure it into place on the mixer. The bowl-lift feature then raises the bowl to the proper level for mixing, where the beaters clear the edge of the bowl at exactly that height and width. You can purchase additional bowls, however.
QuestionCan different size bowls fit this model? Larger and smaller? I've seen several say that the smaller bowls fit, but nothing about the larger bowl - a 6 qt?
- Answer Hi, The KV25G0XSL will accept a 3, 5 or 6 QT stainless steel bowl.
QuestionDoes this particular model come with the coated accessory attachments (like the bread hook) or does it come with the burnished metal accessories?
- Answer No, the hook and beater are not coated.
QuestionNo warranty?This model shows that there is no warranty while other models show a one year warranty. Is this correct? If so, why?
- Answer All kitchenaid stand mixers have a one year warranty and some of our family members had problems past the one year and Kitchenaid took care of it!
QuestionI'm comparing between KV25G0xxx (Pro 5 Plus, this one) and KG25H0xxx (Pro HD). Pro HD is claimed to be all metal, but it's cheaper than this Pro 5 Plus model. Also, I can't really find a downside for Pro HD, but why it's cheaper?
- Answer Check to see if the motor wattage is the same. That is most likely the difference. That is why I bought the pro, the motor has more power. And the pro is all metal, not sure if the hd. Got this helps
- Answer Hi Tissy, The flex edge beater for your KV25G0X model is part number KFEW6L.
QuestionIs this machine a better option than the Classic Stand Mixer? Isn't it better that the bowl is supported on a solid flat surface?
- Answer The standard kitchen aid mixer, is a tilt head, that is very heavy. This is to help keep the mixer head from bouncing around, while mixing stuff such as bread dough, or cookie dough. With the bowl lift mixer, the base is a little longer and wider, to allow a better foot print, and the bowl lift system, locks in place, to hold the bowl in place while mixing. I have mixed bread dough, with NO movement from the mixer, or the bowl.
QuestionCan KitchenAid - KV25G0XER Professional 500 Series Stand Mixer be used for making pizza dough or is it only good for cookie dough?
- Answer Yes it can be used to make basically any type of dough for breads, pizza, pie crust, cookies etc.
- Answer Kitchenaid makes larger and more powerful mixers like their 600 Pro series, 6000 series and their commercial series mixers such as the 800. This mixer is the introduction to the Pro line series. Their motors are all metal and if the motor over heats it shuts off to protect the motor before it over heats. If this happens, you have to keep the mixer off for 45 minutes to cool it down.
QuestionIs it 450 or 525 watt? The specification says 450, but picture says 525 watts? Recently I purchased this, print on my mixer says 525 watts? I checked the KitchenAid web site same specifications, 450 watts!?! but again there posted picture says 525 watt!?
- Answer I bought mine in-store. It was the Professional 5 Plus--the one pictured instead of the one described. It is 525 Watts. As far as I can tell, it is a step up from the one described but for the same price as described (they didn't even have the model described in the store).
