KitchenAid Mixer Usage Guidelines

These are recommendations from KitchenAid??


Please refer to the following guidelines to ensure the longevity of your KitchenAid Stand Mixer:

  • Do not exceed speed 2 when mixing heavy ingredients such as dough or fruit cakes
  • Do not exceed a total weight of ingredient which is 1.15kg - including any water etc
  • 5-6 minutes run-time for heavy mixtures (allow a 20 min rest period)
  • When mixing normal ingredients 8 minutes is the processing time (again 20 min rest period)
  • Always tighten the thumb screw (black screw near the attachment hub) after use & during use if required (this will stop the badge falling out)
  • Turn the Stand Mixer on at least once a month to prevent the inside seizing & this will also prevent & rectify any oil/grease leaks

After the repair

The mixer will smell of grease/oil


The mixer has had a bath... yay!!! Sounds refreshing; which it is for the mixer, but not so much for you. Mixer's bath in solvents and are then re-greased and oiled. The new grease/oil smells like new grease and oil. And if we have re-oiled your armature bush wicking pad, then it's likely going to leak some of that oil and maybe eventually make its way to the external body of the mixer (underneath the stand)!

There are also little nooks and crannies that hold some of the liquids, only to dribble out over time. Hopefully not too much and not for very long. Just wipe it up with a paper towel and continue mixing. But for the most part you shouldn't notice too much more than the smell.
