There's a lot to like about this Stand Mixer
Classic, strong and quiet come to mind for the KitchenAid K45SS Classic 250-Watt 4-1/2-Quart Stand Mixer. This mixer comes with a large, stainless steel 4 ½ quart bowl and three different mixing paddle attachments. These attachments can accomplish almost almost every mixing need from cyclone speed beating and whipping, to gentle dough kneading. Included are a flat paddle for basic mixing, a kneading hook for dough, and a wire whisk. Each of these parts easily attach and detach to the motor spindle. The whole mixer is covered in a durable white enamel paint. The paint holds up to the worst abuse and stays intact. The enamel coated cast iron base itself is incredibly sturdy and does not wobble or move when the mixer is in motion. The top part of the mixer is where the motor is housed. This part pivots back to lift the mixing mechanism easily from the bowl. It can also be locked into place to ensure even mixing. The motor has 10 different speeds, making it able to do everything from delicate kneading to heavy whipping. The bowl locks and unlocks easily to the base, which gives the user a total hands free mixing experience.

Something to consider...
One item that might need to be considered about the KitchenAid K45SS Classic 250-Watt 4-1/2-Quart Stand Mixer is the overall construction of this machine can make it a bit heavy and difficult to move around. Whipping up batches and batches of cookies at once doesn't come without it's challenges. On average, the KitchenAid K45SS Classic 250-Watt 4-1/2-Quart Stand Mixer machine weighs about 25 pounds and has a 14 inch footprint. This might make it just a touch heavy to move from house to house as you show all your friends your new mixer, but hey what are pilates for anyway.
Overall, the mixer has a beautiful profile and will add to any kitchen décor. The enamel coated body is extremely easy to clean. The smooth, white surface ensures that no liquid splashes or fly away batters stay put for very long. The motor is completely locked away in the housing, so there is no fear that the important electronics will get wet or ruined. This motor housing is also easy to clean. The user should always make sure the motor spindle and attachment area is cleaned after each use.However, KitchenAid does have a solution for people who may be bothered by the idea of having kitchen appliances out in the open. An attractive and modestly priced mixer cover is available for purchase separately.
