I've seen some threads about mixer collections, but I can't find one for pics specifically of Kitchenaid mixers, both new and vintage. I'd love to see photos of the mixers you're using at home, not necessarily on display shelves in collections. I'll take a couple myself and post them. I don't have any room for another collection, but I feel like I'm starting to get the bug to collect Kitchenaids. I think I like them so much because using one with my grandmother is one of my first memories, and everyone in my family has had one for as long as I've been around. If I remember correctly, they were sold in maybe one contemporary color and in white but nothing else. Now, they come in dozens of colors and metal finishes, and I wouldn't be surprised a broad range could be found within this group. For now, I'm attaching a link to a Kitchenaid stand mixer history site, which devotes a page to each model.

I recently learned something about KA Mixers!

Not only do I collect vacuum cleaners but my second love is mixers. And, who am I kidding, any and all other small kitchen appliances, too! 

 

I met a gentleman where I was working who like to tinker with all kinds of things, mixers included. As we talked further he said he would bring a couple in for me to take home home and "play" with. And so I did. 

 

The Azure Blue bowl lift model (from 1996) was in redeemable shape; however, it was leaking oil around the band and under the attachement area, as well. It needed new attachments since the previous owner apparently put the wire whip into the automatic dishwasher (which KitchenAid recommends agaianst doing) and it tarnished to a grotesque and putrid  condition-not something I would be using for something I would be eating later.  The other attachment, the dough hook was in rough shape, too and the paddle was missing. Anyway....I decided to call KithenAid and inquire about the oil leak. Here is what I learned:

 

KitchenAid mixers are packed with three times the amount of grease that they will ever need. Two ounces is sufficient but they are packed with six ounces. Over time without normal use-in other words, if you use it only for holiday baking, the grease will begin to break down and the liquids will separate from the solids. Since the oil has no where to puddle it will leak out around the band. The rep with whom I spoke told me to prevent this from happening simply run the mixer for 2 minutes on the  highest speed (10) for two minutes once a month!

 

Appraently, what happens is the gasket for some reason allows the oil to seep out around it. I don't fully understand the mechanics of exactly why this occurs but the fact is it does. 

 

Now, I have a 4.5 qt lift bowl model in white that  I had purchased in 2008 and really never used other than to play with it a few times and when I finally decided I was going to use it this past Christmas (I am really a fan of the older SunBeam MixMaster mixers! Don't let anyone tell you different-these mixers are every bit as capable as a KitchenAid mixer and in many areas, excel!!) I had noticed that there was some light brown oil around the band. My heart just dropped and I was so mad to think that this occurs. So what I also learned is that old adage  is true!  If you don't use it, you will lose it! USE your mixers and vacuums and to hell with saving it in the box. I am often told that no one is going to want my vacuums and mixers when I am gone and they will only end up in the dumpster anyway! Once I started using the mixer the oil seemed to not accumulate as much after I had wiped away what was previously there. Lesson learned.  

 

Now, for most poeple a 5 qt KitchenAid mixer is just fine. It has a 9-cup flour capacity which means that it can handle a recipe containing 9 cups total of dry ingredients. A 6-qt mixer can handle 14 cups and a 7-qt can handle 16 cups. All of this information is on the KitchenAid website. Just remember that a larger mixer with a smaller amount of ingredients  (or 1 recipe) will require you to stop the machine and scrape down the bowl more often than smaller capacity machine.

My main mixer is a Professional 6 in Matte Black, circa 06?? 525 watts, gets used a few times a week, honest. Back up is a circa 1969? white K5 that I inherited from elderly neighbor who did wedding cakes, ect just for fun back in the day, it made the landladys wedding cake. Handy in the drawer a 08 hand mixer 7 speed, gets some use, have the matching stick blender too.No issues with any, ever.Have 3 vintage mixer attachments, in their boxes still, priced around $12! Yes, long ago. Have 2 bowls for both stand mixers as well. I bake a bit.

THAT FRIDGE!

I saw the same HOTPOINT fridge, in pink with a green interior, in the back of some neighbor's truck! Gorgeous! but unfortunately in bad shape. I feared the thing was on it's way to the scrap yard for a mere $30 (Which I would've GLADLY paid for the thing!).

Best ones where made by Hobart corporation. I think Whirlpool took them over in the late eighties. They will say on them who made them. Whirlpool made mixers may have plastic gearbox covers and some plastic gears that are prone to break from age and heavy operations such as bread dough mixing but you can buy parts somewhat resonable. there are how to videoes on youtube to show how they are repaired.

I think the real trouble with the gearbox was with the bigger motors they put in metal gears, plastic gearbox and I think there was a short run where there was missing retainers to hold the gears in place. Mine is one of that possible run, guess I got lucky.

Old vs NEW..

The old model f and G both are a single speed motor with a 3 speed gearbox, if you put it in low gear, I guarantee nothing made today will even come close to that much power!

All my old

KitchenAids are Hobart, the newest one I have is the K5a pictured above, its a 1965 model, I think the old ones with a real governor are much better....of course, I hate anything under 40 years old LOL!

I really should us my Kitchenaid mixer more.

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
WHEN I use it, I use it a LOT. I'll remember that thing about the grease. That explains why I've seen oil around the band.
THANKS for that insight.
Running it 2 inutes a month really shouldn;t be a problem. WE come from a family of bakers. AND a familt bakery.
I have an old Sunbeam mixmaster and a Dormeyer. But, you have to love a Kitchenaid. Most of my family has on,.along with a HOOVER vacuum. (Johnny made SURE of that)!

I should have posted a counter pic when I started this thread, but here it is a little late. The finish on both is called Sugar Pearl Silver. (BTW, the trivet on the wall the says "Virginia's Kitchen" was my grandmother's. Since one of my first memories is standing on a chair next to her while she mixed things in her Kitchenaid, that trivet has hung in my kitchen near the mixer since she died.)

It's a model K5sswh.  Does anyone know if this is a model with plastic gears? I have a question,  Which style mixer do you think is better?  The Tilt head or bowl lift?  Which do you prefer?

I had 2 tilt heads in the past, easier to live with, but they got loose in the neck from all the use.

Post# 267052 , Reply# 13   2/10/2014 at 19:05 (1,200 days old) by Louvac (Madison)        
Gears are designed to break...

...in order to spare the motor.

 

Correct me if I am wrong, but I do believe that the older Sunbeam Mixmasters and for that matter, all of them except the more recent models such as the $69 model and $159 model sold at Walmart, were designed with nylon gear(s) (teeth) with a metal hub(s). The reasoning behind it was since these machines were non-load bearing, the teeth took the hit first thus sparing the motor from burning out under a full mixing load. The gear could easily and inexpensively be repaired. In other words, they were made to be repaired. 

 

Regarding the difference between KitchenAid tilt-head and bowl-lift models:  Tilt head models make it easy to add ingredients and change attachments, whereas, bowl-lift models require a certain order of operation if you will. Also, bowl-lift models require ample head space under the kitchen cabinet and tilt heads do not. They are low-profile. 

 

Remember guys, whatever you do, DO NOT PLACE ATTACHMENTS IN THE DISHWASHER! KitchenAid explicitly says not to do this.

 

One thing I do--I guess I do it cause my mom still does it to this day, and I learned it from her and I guess I agree with her logic, is that when I bake or cook and after I hand wash everything ( I consider my hands the best dishwasher out there! And, I enjoy doing them this way even though I do have a quality dishwasher!) , I will place the mixer beaters, spatula, measuring spoons/cups, etc., on the stove top in the middle to thoroughly dry from the heat of the oven before I put them away. My pots and pan the same way. This does prevent rust from forming particularly on older mixer beaters that weren't made of stainless steel. 

 

The way you take care of things will determine how long they will last and how well they will work the next time you go to use them!

Why should the attachments not go in the dishwasher? I have been putting mine in the dishwasher for years without a problem.

On the burnished metal parts, it discolors and becomes able to transfer that to what you are mixing, as in your pure white frosting will prob have a tinge of gray as the paddle goes through it. I noticed Barefoot Contessa uses dishwasher on hers, the color is a dead give away.

I've never made a pure white frosting since I am a chocolate man so I guess that is why I have never noticed any difference :-)

If your KA beaters are coated with the white epoxy like coating you can wash the blades in the dishwasher.These are the only ones I try to get-I don't want to wash any more things by hand than I have to--it all should go into the dishwasher.The parts for my Viking-Kenwood mixer are cast Stainless Steel-no problem with the dishwasher there!!The burnished uncoated KA beaters should not go into the dishwashwer-the dishwasher detergent attacks the aluminun-sure you don't want aluminun in your recipes!So--the Burnished beater blades have to be washed by hand.

The flat beater is coated with the white epoxy like coating and that is the one that I use the most. I do use the whip on occasion to do egg whites but I've always put it in the dishwasher as well.

My KA is 18 years old

It is a Diamond Anniversary model with coated attachments. Wire Wisk is stainless. I have ran them through the dishwasher many thousands of times with no problems. This is actually good, because my moto is "if it don't go in the dishwasher it goes in the compactor."

I'll have to focus on a picture strictly of the mixer. However I took this photo last week while using it to make a cake for a friends Birthday. It's an old Kitchen Aid from my mom. Some day I'd like to get either the navy blue or forest colored green models!! I could have a Christmas themed kitchen between a green mixer and the red microwave. That's funny a Christmas kitchen, and I'm supposed to celebrate Hanukkah instead!!

Great thread, Patrick! I'll have to check out that KA blog when I have some more time. I know the Hobart mixers go way back!

Thanks for that advice, Louis... Our KA that's only about 4 years old has seeped oil from behind the band, and I've wondered why. I've taken it apart once to get rid of the excess oil, and noticed a few weeks ago that it's doing it again. It's good to know about running it periodically to keep that from happening. Having so many mixers, it's hard to give them all the love they need! I did use the KA this past Saturday to make cookies, but didn't take a picture, I'll have to do that this weekend. We have a shredder attachment, and it all goes in the DW when I'm done using it; we haven't had a problem with it so far. I mostly use that to shred cheese when I make home made Maccaroni & Cheese. We also have one of the bowl-wiping spatula beaters; Terry gave it to us shortly after we got the mixer. I absolutely love it. I hardly ever have to stop the mixer to scrape the sides of the bowl -- I recommend them if you don't have one!

K/A

I have a purple Artisan. Love it. But, I still use my Sunbeam more. I like the 2 different bowls, and I grew up with a Sunbeam. The one I use the most is 40 years old and going strong. Too bad they don't make them like that anymore. I sound like my parents!

the mixer in reply 28..

Is a K-4, for 4 quart bowl, the 3-c is virtually the same with a more v shaped 3 qt bowl, the one shown is a later one, because the handle is painted, and solid, the early 4-c had a buffed aluminum handle that was open to allow you to lift the head with, why they closed up the hole I never did figure out., this one shown is 1970s.

The coral colored Sunbeam Mixmaster model 9 all taken apart, I sandblasted at work, painted and am restoring! That mixer was so gross when I bought it, you couldn't even tell what it was! The newer Sunbeam model 2350 on my Cosco stool I garbage picked a few weeks back! The thing works great too! I just had to buy it some beaters! I will be making a cake with it this weekend! A few of my mixers were given to me by friends too! Never can have too many mixers! :) -Michelle

Wow......

you guys and gals are really into your mixers. I have the one on the right in Post# 267317, I believe. Bought it at Macy's to match the finish on the modern toaster I already had from Macy's. I thought it was called Industrial something or other....or maybe I want it to be called that...lol.

Got the better motor, but it's probably not their very best. I don't need anything better, really. I grew up watching a 'big white' model work with all its accessories. I know nothing about them other than I never saw one fail in any kind of spectacular way...unlike the hand held mixers often do.

I recently got out my grandmother's Proctor Silex juicer from the 50's and squeezed up some key lime juice and some orange juice. Haven't used it in over 35 yrs. I took the motor apart when I was a boy, but decided I could do nothing for it to improve it...lol.

In this day & age of modern lubricants and tailor made synthetic greases...if Kitchenaid is using a grease that separates out from lack of routine use, shame on them.

Has anyone experienced residue issues with the KitchenAid stainless steel bowl?

I've got a couple of chrome Sunbeam Mixmasters from the '70s. They're plenty powerful, fit my needs nicely and weigh a lot less than a Kitchenaid. One is chrome with a chrome base and the other is a Vista with built-in work light that has a brown bakelite base. At one time, I had four Mixmasters but I gave one to a girlfriend (we're not together anymore but no regrets there, we parted as friends and I'm glad she has it) and donated the other, which was really just a conglomeration of spare parts assembled into an almost complete mixer, to my church's rummage sale.

From left to right, those are 7-, 6-, and 5-quart models. The finish is Sugar Pearl Silver Metallic, which color isn't used much anymore, so I won't be able to add anything else to that set, not that I need to! Mixer expert John Pease's favorite color is Candy Apple Red, and I'm going to try to convince him to pose with a photo of his collection, at least these same three models in that color.

Excellent machinery!

Design, function, everything. I only have one: in white. I DO love the baby blue (I forget the real name) one, but, can't justify buying another one. I thought, :if it wears out, I can replace it". Then I realized, it won't wear out. Mine doesn't get used hard, but, it does get its share of usage. Too many colors from which to choose. I always say, "Give me anything but an option!".

Sunbeam MixMasters I like

Model 9, Model 12, V-14CS, and 701-10D (Chrome Vista with metal stand, light, and dough hooks with added Disco-Chef slicer/shredder - 4 blade model) Have a joggling juicer for them all too.
