Compact and lightweight design
Sturdy die-cast metal construction
Planetary mixing action
Similar to the Award-winning KitchenAid Artisan 4.8L Stand Mixer, but cheaper
Relatively small mixing bowl
It’s a very decent size for a normal household cooking and baking. I knead my dough in it everyday perfectly. The only problem I had was that the machine vibrates little bit. Otherwise fully functional for everyday baking needs.

I owned a full size KitchenAid many years ago and made the mistake of selling it when in the grip of Thermomix madness. Doh! As I've now downsized, the KitchenAid Mini is perfect as its footprint is really compact in comparison. Also, it's perfect for the volume I make. In retrospect, if the Mini had been available when I was initially in the market, I would have bought the Mini. I find that the Empire Red really lifts up my kitchen bench. Performance doesn't suffer. It's really quiet and when beating or kneading, there is virtually no noise or...vibration. I am quite short and small and oddly enough, the Mini seems easier to handle in lifting the head up and down - it may be lighter (I'm not sure). I really am very fond of this machine and look forward to another lifetime of breads, cakes and pastries with it.

Looks good, broken down after 12months.
Our machine looks good, however after living a short, easy life it has broken down. The unit has had a very easy life making light cake mixers & whisking cream. My mother bought a Kenwood mixer 40 years ago and it is still going strong, never missed a beat. Sorry, I don’t have any faith in this mini mixer lasting anywhere near a Kenwood. Can not recommend this product.
I bought this model for two reasons: the colour is beautiful (not easy to find a yellow KitchenAid) and it was the perfect size for a small family. It is deep yellow and the bowl is stainless steel which is dishwasher safe. Whisk is also stainless steel and dishwasher safe but paddle attachment and dough hook are enamel coated (hand wash only).

Worked great for 11 months!!
The stand mixer was great but it stopped working today and it was only 11 months since I bought it. It stopped working completely and I tried to turn it on again and it worked at very low speed and stop and work again and again. The motor doesn't sound right at all. However I tried to contact Kitchenaid service and hoping I will be contacted very soon as I need to use it to make a cake for my daughter BD.

Very high quality product that will last forever
Always wanting a Kitchen Aid Mixer and this one fits perfectly in my kitchen. Its so easy to work with and makes life easy. I run my own small cake business and this is a perfect fit for my work. Very easy to use and very quiet.

"Mini Me" Version
When buying appliances, one of my criteria is ensuring the equipment does not take too much space. Thus, it's no surprise that when we were looking for a KitchenAid mixer, I opted to buy this model. As my wife and I usually just bake a few items at one time, this model is perfect for us. It takes just a right amount of space and the quantity it produced is sufficient for personal use. Being a bit smaller in size makes it light as well. Still heavy but relatively easier to move around. Like any KitchenAid product, it's built well and definitely durable. Highly recommended.

No regrets - I am converted to KitchenAid
Love my Kitchenaid Mini. Mostly it does exactly what I purchased it for, ie cupcakes, muffins, bread and pizza dough. It is a Mini, so whilst it's great for space saving on the bench don't expect to do large batches of dough etc, but I have found one loaf or pizza dough enough for a family of 4 to be fine. I purchased it knowing it was smaller than usual so I simply have to do 2 batches when entertaining and making pizza - certainly not the end of the world but when I'm entertaining that I could use the extra time so I will look to upgrade down...the track to a Kitchenaid Classic. I did purchase this mini on sale for $250, a bargain, but if I was to pay retail or close to I'd probably have gone the Classic straight away as I do have the bench space available. The wattage concerned me at the start as it's so much less than other mixers but these pack a punch and are better than others I have tested. If you're considering one of these and the price is right, I would highly recommend it.

Very impressed, will go to this brand in future for baking appliances
We had an issue with our first delivery breaking down but it was replaced, no arguments, in double quick time. Many thanks to Appliances Online.
We bought it primarily for the dough hook and bread making features but will now be using it for much more. We have just ordered the scraper blade and pouring hood as accessories. There are only 2 of us so this size is perfect.
It's quiet, compact and easy to clean. So far has transformed the quality of our bread by a mile, and there is also a great deal of info on YouTube from other bakers and e...
All my dreams come true
From the day I saw my first Kitchenaid Stand Mixer I wanted one but could never afford one. That all changed when I saw the Mini. Now i am the proud owner of a Honey Dew Mini. It is excellent in every way except one small thing...the beater attachment doesn't work right to the sides of the bowl. Other than that, perfection!!
(KitchenAid mini)Cute and performative!
It’s mini it’s so cute but it’s so powerful! I am loving it. I have made lots of delicious sweets out of this baby. For whipping cream and meringue, this baby can perform as best as the big ones. It’s smaller so it fits well on your kitchen bench top.
Perfect for small kitchen
I love baking, I bought it 4 months ago and been using at least twice a week, been working perfectly with the tiny space I have. It’s not noisy as I thought before I bought (I used hand mixer, that much noisier). Lovely colour. I also bought the mincer and sausage tube attachment. I’m not buying mince any more. The size of the bowl is perfect just as what I wanted.
I’m satisfied with Kinchenaid mixer, would recommend to everyone who has smaller space and love baking, I’m happy every time I use and never regret. High quality mixer, would last forever.
Good but expensive for what you get
It's a better size for me but still quite heavy. For the money you pay, the flex paddle attachment should come with it as I find the ordinary paddle that is included still leaves stuff at the bottom of the bowl that I have to get in and mix by hand. I wish the balloon whisk was dishwasher safe. The machine is sturdy and looks good. More practical than the full sized one if you have limited bench space.
Perfect for My needs, accessories are over priced so won’t be buying any. Only payed $400 for this hunted the internet. Looks great, easy to use and I’m sure it will last forever. Happy purchase. Wouldn’t pay the full price of $600 ++ looking forward to creating many treats for my little family.
Perfect machine and size foe what we need, the bowl is a good size and is perfect for me. We also have the Spiraliser which is cool and excellent for making salad I just wish it had a round cutter too...
Would highly recommend to anyone, certainly excellent for us.
Questions & Answers

Both models feature an array of convenient features for mixing up a storm in the kitchen. This includes: 10 mixing speeds, planetary mixing action, a stainless steel bowl and full die cast metal body.
Notable differences between the Kitchen Mini and the larger KitchenAid Stand Mixer are that the Mini is smaller and more compact, as well as lightweight (6.5kg compared to 10.6kg). The larger KitchenAid Artisan mixer also includes 2 mixing bowls (4.8L and 2.8L), whereas the Mini model includes just one 3.3L bowl.
This means the mixing capacity of both appliances is different. The KitchenAid Mini can process up to 680g of all-purpose flour and 8 medium egg whites, while the larger 4.8L model can mix yeast dough, up to a weight of 1.15kg, or two 450g loaves.
The KitchenAid Mini comes with these standard inclusions: a flat beater, wire whisk and dough hook. This differs from the 4.8L only in the sense of lacking a pouring shield.
