KitchenAid: Is the Pro 6 too much mixer for me?

spigot | Apr 1, 2007 06:11 PM

I'm planning to buy a KA soon and have done tons of research here - thanks, everyone who's written about theirs.

I'm leaning towards the Pro 6 for all the obvious reasons (CI rated it best, plus the general view of 'buy the most power you can afford') - but there's one thing worrying me. I'd be making mostly smallish stuff: one cake, small batch of bread, a small souffle, maybe a occasional double batch of cookies. And I've read reviews suggesting the Pro 6 doesn't do so well with small batches - the beaters don't reach to the bottom of the bowl and therefore mixing isn't as thorough, etc.

If the Pro 6 does small batches as well as it does large, then perfect. If not - well, 90% of the time I'm cooking for two, so in that case an Artisan might be a better fit for me.

Any advice from Pro 6 owners?
