Troubleshooting Problems
Please read the following before
calling your service center.
1. The stand mixer may warm up
during use. Under heavy loads
with extended mixing time
periods, you may not be able to
comfortably touch the top of the
stand mixer. This is normal.
2. The stand mixer may emit a
pungent odor, especially when
new. This is common with
electric motors.
3. If the flat beater hits the bowl,
stop the stand mixer. See the
“Beater to Bowl Clearance”
section.
If your stand mixer should
malfunction or fail to operate,
please check the following:
- Is the stand mixer plugged in?
- Is the fuse in the circuit to the
stand mixer in working order? If
you have a circuit breaker box, be
sure the circuit is closed.
- Turn the stand mixer off for
10-15 seconds, then turn it back
on. If the mixer still does not start,
allow it to cool for 30 minutes
before turning it back on.
- If the problem is not due to one
of the above items, see the
“Arranging for Service” section.
- Do not return the stand mixer to
the retailer as they do not provide
service.
Keep a copy of the sales receipt
showing the date of purchase.
Proof of purchase will assure you of
in-warranty service.

Using Your KitchenAid® Attachments
Flat Beater for normal to heavy mixtures:
cakes
biscuits
creamed frostings
quick breads
candies
meat loaf
cookies
mashed potatoes
pie pastry
Wire Whip for mixtures that need air incorporated:
eggs
sponge cakes
egg whites
angel food cakes
heavy cream
mayonnaise
boiled frostings
some candies
PowerKnead™ Spiral Dough Hook for mixing and kneading
yeast doughs:
breads
coffee cakes
rolls
buns
pizza dough
Mixing Time
Your KitchenAid® stand mixer will
mix faster and more thoroughly
than most other electric stand
mixers. Therefore, the mixing time
in most recipes must be adjusted to
avoid overbeating. With cakes, for
example, beating time may be half
as long as with other stand mixers.
Mixer Use
The bowl and beater are designed
to provide thorough mixing
without frequent scraping. Scraping
the bowl once or twice during
mixing is usually sufficient. Turn
stand mixer off before scraping.
The stand mixer may warm up
during use. Under heavy loads with
extended mixing time, you may not
be able to comfortably touch the
top of the stand mixer. This is
normal.
Injury Hazard
Unplug mixer before touching
beaters.
Failure to do so can result in
broken bones, cuts or bruises.
NOTE: Do not scrape bowl while
stand mixer is operating.
11
Care and Cleaning
NOTE: Always be sure to unplug
stand mixer before cleaning. Wipe
stand mixer with a soft, damp cloth.
Do not use household/commercial
cleaners. Do not immerse in water.
Wipe off beater shaft frequently,
removing any residue that may
accumulate.
Bowl, white flat beater and white
spiral dough hook may be washed
in an automatic dishwasher. Or,
clean them thoroughly in hot sudsy
water and rinse completely before
drying. Wire whip, burnished spiral
dough hook and burnished flat
beater should be hand washed and
dried immediately. Do not wash
wire whip, burnished spiral dough
hook and burnished flat beater in a
dishwasher. Do not store beaters
on shaft.
Beater to Bowl Clearance
Your stand mixer is adjusted at the factory so the flat beater just clears the
bottom of the bowl. If, for any reason, the flat beater hits the bottom of
the bowl or is too far away from the bowl, you can correct the clearance
easily.
1. Unplug stand mixer.
2. Place bowl lift handle in down
position.
3. Attach flat beater.
4. Adjust so flat beater just clears
bottom surface of bowl when in
lifted position by turning screw
(A) counterclockwise to raise the
bowl and clockwise to lower the
bowl. Just a slight turn is all that
is required: the screw will not
rotate more than 1⁄4 turn
(90 degrees) in either direction.
(The full range of adjustment is
1
⁄2 turn, or 180 degrees.)
5. Place bowl lift handle in up
position to check clearance.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 if
necessary.
NOTE: When properly adjusted, the
flat beater will not strike on the
bottom or side of the bowl. If the
flat beater or the wire whip is so
close that it strikes the bottom of
the bowl, coating may wear off the
beater or wires on whip may wear.

Speed Control Guide
All speeds have the Soft Start® feature which automatically starts the stand
mixer at a lower speed to help avoid ingredient splash-out and “flour puff”
at start-up then quickly increases to the selected speed for optimal
performance.
Number of Speed
Stir
Speed
STIR
For slow stirring, combining, mashing,
starting all mixing procedures. Use to
add flour and dry ingredients to batter,
and add liquids to dry ingredients. Do
not use STIR speed to mix or knead
yeast doughs.
2
SLOW MIXING
For slow mixing, mashing, faster
stirring. Use to mix and knead yeast
doughs, heavy batters and candies;
start mashing potatoes or other
vegetables; cut shortening into flour;
mix thin or splashy batters. Use with
Can Opener attachment.
4
MIXING,
BEATING
For mixing semi-heavy batters, such as
cookies. Use to combine sugar and
shortening and to add sugar to egg
whites for meringues. Medium speed
for cake mixes. Use with: Food Grinder,
Rotor Slicer/Shredder, Pasta Roller, and
Fruit/Vegetable Strainer.
6
BEATING,
CREAMING
For medium-fast beating (creaming) or
whipping. Use to finish mixing cake,
doughnut, and other batters. High
speed for cake mixes. Use with Citrus
Juicer attachment.
8
FAST BEATING,
WHIPPING
For whipping cream, egg whites, and
boiled frostings.
10
FAST WHIPPING
For whipping small amounts of cream,
egg whites or for final whipping of
mashed potatoes. Use with Pasta
Maker and Grain Mill attachments.
NOTE: Will not maintain fast speeds
under heavy loads, such as when using
Pasta Maker or Grain Mill attachments.
Use Speed 2 to mix or knead yeast doughs. Use of any other speed creates
high potential for stand mixer failure. The PowerKnead™ Spiral Dough
Hook efficiently kneads most yeast dough within 4 minutes.
13
Mixing Tips
Converting Your Recipe
for the Mixer
Adding Ingredients
Always add ingredients as close to
side of bowl as possible, not
directly into moving beater. The
Pouring Shield can be used to
simplify adding ingredients.
NOTE: If ingredients in very bottom
of bowl are not thoroughly mixed,
then the beater is not far enough
into the bowl. See the “Beater to
Bowl Clearance” section.
The mixing instructions for recipes
in this book can guide you in
converting your own favorite
recipes for preparation with your
KitchenAid® stand mixer. Look for
recipes similar to yours and then
adapt your recipes to use the
procedures in the similar
KitchenAid® recipes.
For example, the “quick mix”
method (sometimes referred to as
the “dump” method) is ideal for
simple cakes, such as the Quick
Yellow Cake and Easy White Cake
included in this book. This method
calls for combining dry ingredients
with most or all liquid ingredients
in one step.
More elaborate cakes, such as
Caramel Walnut Banana Torte,
should be prepared using the
traditional cake mixing method.
With this method, sugar and the
shortening, butter or margarine are
thoroughly mixed (creamed) before
other ingredients are added.
For all cakes, mixing times may
change because your KitchenAid®
stand mixer works more quickly
than other mixers. In general,
mixing a cake with the KitchenAid®
stand mixer will take about half the
time called for in most cake
recipes.
To help determine the ideal
mixing time, observe the batter or
dough and mix only until it has the
desired appearance described in
your recipe, such as “smooth and
creamy.”
To select the best mixing speeds,
use the “Speed Control Guide”
section.
Cake Mixes
When preparing packaged cake
mixes, use Speed 2 for low speed,
Speed 4 for medium speed, and
Speed 6 for high speed. For best
results, mix for the time stated on
the package directions.
Adding Nuts, Raisins, or
Candied Fruits
Follow individual recipes for
guidelines on including these
ingredients. In general, solid
materials should be folded in the
last few seconds of mixing on STIR
Speed. The batter should be thick
enough to keep the fruit or nuts
from sinking to the bottom of the
pan during baking. Sticky fruits
should be dusted with flour for
better distribution in the batter.
Liquid Mixtures
Mixtures containing large amounts
of liquid ingredients should be
mixed at lower speeds to avoid
splashing. Increase speed only after
mixture has thickened.
14
Egg Whites
Whipped Cream
Place room temperature egg whites
in clean, dry bowl. Attach bowl and
wire whip. To avoid splashing,
gradually turn to designated speed
and whip to desired stage. See chart
below.
Pour cold whipping cream into
chilled bowl. Attach bowl and wire
whip. To avoid splashing, gradually
turn to designated speed and whip

Whipping Stages
Whipping Stages
Watch cream closely during
whipping. Because your
KitchenAid® stand mixer whips so
quickly, there are just a few
seconds between whipping stages.
Look for these characteristics:
With your KitchenAid® stand mixer,
egg whites whip quickly. So, watch
to avoid overwhipping. This list tells
you what to expect.
Frothy
Large, uneven air bubbles.
Begins to Thicken
Cream is thick and custard-like.
Begins to Hold Shape
Air bubbles are fine and compact;
product is white.
Holds its Shape
Cream forms soft peaks when wire
whip is removed. Can be folded
into other ingredients when making
desserts and sauces.
Soft Peak
Tips of peaks fall over when wire
whip is removed.
Stiff
Cream stands in stiff, sharp peaks
when wire whip is removed. Use
for topping on cakes or desserts, or
filling for cream puffs.
Almost Stiff
Sharp peaks form when wire whip
is removed, but whites are actually
soft.
Stiff but not Dry
Sharp, stiff peaks form when wire
whip is removed. Whites are
uniform in color and glisten.
Stiff and Dry
Sharp, stiff peaks form when wire
whip is removed. Whites are
speckled and dull in appearance.

Attachments and Accessories
General Information
KitchenAid® Attachments are designed to assure long life. The attachment
power shaft and hub socket are of a square design, to eliminate any
possibility of slipping during the transmission of power to the attachment.
The hub and shaft housing are tapered to assure a snug fit, even after
prolonged use and wear. KitchenAid® Attachments require no extra power
unit to operate them; the power unit is built-in.

“Rapid Mix” describes a bread
baking method that calls for dry
yeast to be mixed with other dry
ingredients before liquid is added.
In contrast, the traditional method
is to dissolve yeast in warm water.
1. Place all dry ingredients
including yeast into bowl, except
last 1 to 2 cups flour.
2. Attach bowl and PowerKnead™
Spiral Dough Hook. Raise mixer
bowl. Turn to Speed 2 and mix
about 15 seconds, or until
ingredients are combined.
3. Continuing on Speed 2,
gradually add liquid ingredients
to flour mixture and mix 1 to
2 minutes longer. See
Illustration A.
NOTE: If liquid ingredients are
added too quickly, they will form a
pool around the PowerKnead™
Spiral Dough Hook and slow down
mixing process.
4. Continuing on Speed 2, gently
add remaining flour, 1⁄2 cup at a
time. See Illustration B. Mix until
dough starts to clean sides of
bowl, about 2 minutes.
5. Knead on Speed 2 for 2 more
minutes, or until dough is
smooth and elastic. See
Illustration C.
6. Lower bowl on mixer and
remove dough from the bowl
and PowerKnead™ Spiral Dough
Hook. Follow directions in recipe
for rising, shaping and baking.
When using the traditional method
to prepare a favorite recipe,
dissolve yeast in warm water in
warmed bowl. Add remaining
liquids and dry ingredients, except
last 1 to 2 cups flour. Turn to
Speed 2 and mix about 1 minute,
or until ingredients are thoroughly
mixed. Proceed with steps 4
through 6.

Both methods work equally well for
bread preparation. However, the
“Rapid Mix” method may be a bit
faster and easier for new bread
bakers. It is slightly more
temperature tolerant because the
yeast is mixed with dry ingredients
rather than with warm liquid.

YEAST BREADS AND QUICK BREADS
General Instructions
for Making and Kneading Yeast Dough
with the Rapid Mix Method
Bread Making Tips
Making bread with a mixer is quite
different from making bread by
hand. Therefore, it will take some
practice before you are completely
comfortable with the new process.
For your convenience, we offer
these tips to help you become
accustomed to bread making the
KitchenAid® brand way.
• Allow bread to rise in a warm
place, 80°F to 85°F, free from
draft, unless otherwise specified
in recipe.
• Here are some alternative rising
methods to use: (1) The bowl
containing the dough can be
placed on a wire rack over a pan
of hot water. (2) The bowl can be
placed on the top rack of an
unheated oven; put a pan of hot
water on the rack below. (3) Turn
the oven to 400°F for 1 minute;
then turn it off; place the bowl
on the center rack of the oven
and close the door.
• Start out with an easy recipe,
such as the “Basic White Bread”
recipe, until you are familiar with
using the PowerKnead™ Spiral
Dough Hook.
• Always use the PowerKnead™
Spiral Dough Hook to mix and
knead yeast doughs.
Cover bowl with waxed paper, if
desired. Always cover with towel
to retain warmth in the bowl and
protect the dough from drafts.
• Use Speed 2 to mix or knead
yeast doughs. Use of any other
speed creates high potential for
stand mixer failure.
• Recipe rising times may vary due
to temperature and humidity in
your kitchen. Dough has doubled
in bulk when indentation remains
after tips of fingers are pressed
lightly and quickly into dough.
• Do not use recipes calling for
more than 14 cups all-purpose
flour or 8 cups whole-wheat flour
when making dough with a 6 qt
mixer.
• Most bread recipes give a range
for the amount of flour to be
used. Enough flour has been
added when the dough starts to
clean sides of bowl. If dough is
sticky or humidity is high, slowly
add more flour, about 1⁄2 cup at a
time but do not exceed
recommended flour capacity.
Knead after each addition until
flour is completely worked into
dough. If too much flour is
added, a dry loaf will result.
• Do not use recipes calling for
more than 12 cups all-purpose
flour or 6 cups whole-wheat flour
when making dough with a 5 qt
mixer.
• Use a candy or other kitchen
thermometer to assure that
liquids are at temperature
specified in the recipe. Liquids at
higher temperature can kill yeast,
while liquids at lower
temperatures will retard yeast
growth.
• When done, yeast breads and
rolls should be deep golden
brown in color. Other tests for
doneness of breads are: Bread
pulls away from the sides of pan,
and tapping on the top of the
loaf produces a hollow sound.
Turn loaves and rolls onto racks
immediately after baking to avoid
sogginess.
• Warm all ingredients to room
temperature to ensure proper
rising of dough. If yeast is to be
dissolved in bowl, always warm
bowl first by rinsing with warm
water to avoid cooling of liquids.
56
Shaping a Loaf
Pinch ends and turn under. Place,
seam side down, in loaf pan.
Follow directions in recipe for rising
and baking.
Divide dough in half. On lightly
floured surface, roll each half into a
rectangle, approximately
9 x 14". A rolling pin will smooth
dough and remove gas bubbles.
Starting at a short end, roll dough
tightly. Pinch dough to seal seam.
