Hi. I have a ksm150. I was planning on buying an extra bowl for it. I Am getting a 4.7 ltr bowl at a shop near me but wasn't sure it will fit as I suppose ksm150 has a 4.8ltr bowl. Let me know if that is ok or which one to buy

Whether or not the bowl will fit has more to do with how it locks into the machine than anything else. The size of the bowl won't make much difference. However ensure the bowl is made specially for use with kitchenaids as they need a particular diameter and shape in other for the beater action to be effective, and they have a lock in mechanism that is different in manufacture than most other brands. A universal one may not work.

Hi Aarti, we recommend purhasing the 4.8L stainless steel bowl for the KSM150. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi Toffi,

Thanks for reaching out to us. Can you please let us know if you bake a lot? If you do, we recommend the Stand Mixer as it is the go to for making cakes, bread, pastries, dough - the list is endless! The hub on the Stand Mixer allows you to grow beyond baking, where you can attach over 14 different attachments which ranges from pasta attachments, spiralizer, meat grinders and the vegetable sheet cutter. The food processor is great for meal preparation for slicing, dicing, pureeing and chopping.

You can find more information on our website here.

What's the difference between the KSM150 and 5KSM150?

Hi Jack,

It is the same model. The KSM150 naming convention is used in America whereas the '5' in KSM150 is for models in other regions.

KSM150 Artisan

The timing in the instruction book regarding the bread kneading is way off. I have used both the methods in the instruction book and having the dough knead with the hook at Speed of 2 did not provide the texture that I want within 4-6 minutes and I am cautious of not using other higher speed for kneading purposes. Please kindly advise whether it is still alright to continue kneading the dough using the hook for more than the required time and does this process affect the machine itself?

Hannahasked

KSM150 Artisan

I am looking purchase either the 150 or 160 model. I am curious to know if people find the larger bowl (ie only bowl with the 150) can successfully deal with small quantities, eg creaming small amounts of butter and sugar. With my old mixer I often found the ingredients would stick to the sides of the bowl and not incorporate well. Thank you.

Hi Hannah, I suppose like any mixer you can have issues with small amounts but especially creaming I warm the metal bowl with some water from a recently boiled Kettle, dry it then add ingredients, it works well. Overall though unless it's really cold I don't tend to have any problems and I bake a few times a week for my family. Hope this helps. Celia

I have only just received my replacement and have only made a packet mix with it and it worked fine My only advice would be to buy from myer because they replaced my mixer immediately and kitchenaid wanted to repair it I bought artisan 150

All the 300W tilt models are the same machine. The difference is in the parts that ship with the models. The most basic model only ships with three beaters and one bowl. The higher end ones will ship with an extra bowl, a spill cover and a flex beater as well. Check the product descriptions carefully to see what's shipped with each. If you only want to do basic things then you might find the lowest end model to suit you and you can always buy the other items individually as you need them.

What is the difference between the Food Processor attachment and the slicer/shredder attachment?

Alex

The food processor is better as you can do more with it. It chops veges or slice them. The slicer/shredder merely just slice some veges and grate cheese.

KSM150 Artisan

Hi, I have a KSM 150 with the metal bowl with handle. I've used it maybe around 15-20 times to make bread dough in 6 months since i bought it brand new. The bowl now doesn't fit in tightly anymore as the metal base is worn out. Is this normal? It's a bit disappointing that the base of the bowl gets worn out so fast. I always make sure the bowls are screwed in tightly when i use it with the fear of the bowl coming lose and damaging the whole mixer. That's exactly what happened the last time when i made bread dough and turned my back for 10 seconds. Do you offer replacements?

They are exactly the same but the 160 has an additional bowl 2.8L.

The actual mixer units are identical, the KSM 160 comes with two stainless steel mixing bowls, and the KSM150 comes wioth one stainless steel mixing bowl.

Bamixer

To be honest the smaller bowl isn't that useful as it's too small for most things you will make. While a 4.8L bowl sounds enormous it's really not very large and you can even do small batches in it quite easily. I whipped three egg whites in the larger bowl just fine. With these mixers you need quite a bit of clearance between your ingredients and the top of the bowl otherwise it spills out.

Hi Hardik, the KSM150 can most definitely be used on a daily basis for making dough. The bowl can hold up to 1kg of flour and produce 2kg of dough. If you have any questions we are happy to help. Kind Regards, The KitchenAid Team

Hi, The KitchenAid Stand Mixers are designed with power saving engineering so they only draw the power required to run the machine, unlike other brands which are not as energy efficient. We hope this helps, The KitchenAid Team

Interesting one... I have used other mixers before and since using the KitchenAid (not even realising the difference in the motor watts) I haven't had any issues with performance of the machine. If anything I find it a little quieter than some others.
