Great KitchenAid Alternative, Buy it if you make bread!!!

I have bought both a kitchenaid artisan stand mixer and this mixer and tried them side by side.


The recipe I made was a simple pizza dough with a maximum of 3 cups of flour and yeast and water (won't disclose whole recipe :-))


                                           Kenmore Elite                                                      Kitchenaid

Noise           Louder, but consistent sound (no grinding noise)           Less Loud, but ginding noises can be heard on first use

Speed                                   Same                                                                   Same

Power                                400watts                                                             325 watts

Warranty                         5 year replacement included                          1 year replacement included

Price                                      179                                                                        299

Dough Mixing Hook                 Actually kneads dough                                     Moves it around the bowl

Mixing Light                       YES                                                                            NO

Number of Mixing Bowls                2 (5Qt, and 3Qt)                                            5 Qt

Attachments                       All KitchenAid Attachments                                 All KitchenAid Attachments

Standard Use: If you use this mixer for just cake baking and cupcakes and whipcream creation then you need to probably get the kitchenaid if you want a wide range of colors. But if you want to make pizza dough or wheat breads or other things on a daily or even weekly basis you need to get this mixer because both will probably strip their gears out  over the next five years but only one has a five year warranty and local replacement. So make the smart decision like I did, a mixer is going to be loud no matter what but if you want bread for home then you need to buy this kenmore Elite Stand Mixer

Faulty mixer was fire hazard; not backed by Sears

We bought this mixer 3 years ago, when the red became available, after comparing it to the Kitchen Aid--it seemed to be a good value, and used all the Kitchen Aid attachments. We have used it less than 25 times. One night it turned on by itself-all the controls were off! We unplugged it, and a few days later we tried it in another outlet-the machine started turning when the controls were off, and the arm was raised! Then, although the light was on, the controls no longer worked. I emailed Sears, but never got a response, so I took it to the store and was told the warranty was only 1 year, and I should've bought the extended plan for 3 years. Now it's worthless, and I will never throw away my money on a Kenmore product again if this is the way they treat their customers. We currently have a complete Kenmore Elite kitchen, but when the time comes we will replace the appliances elsewhere.

Doesn't hold up - buy the kitchen aid


Gift from hubby for xmas. within a week we were exchanging it due to loud noise and burning smell. Replacement still noisy. 6 year later switch failed and hubby managed to fix. 1 year later starting running by itself , then switch failed again. Just not a well-made machine - looks like a remake of the kitchen aid but engine not as good.

Great mixer


Love this mixer. Does everything it said it would and more. No problems here. It was a good price. I have used it a lot since I have gotten it. And the red color goes with the color scheme of my kitchen.
