This Is Why You Choose A KitchenAid Bowl-Lift or Tilt-Head

What do you want most in a mixer? With so many different KitchenAid mixers on the market, it can be difficult to decide which one is best for your needs. Luckily, we’ve put together this handy blog post with our top reasons for choosing a KitchenAid tilt-head or bowl-lift mixer.

We’ve been building, testing and perfecting our different KitchenAid mixers for years and we can assure you that each model has its own benefits.

Take our professional 6-quart bowl-lift for example: it’s classic, stylish and has a sleek stainless steel finish. It’s heavy enough to withstand the heaviest of loads, but light enough to maneuver easily through any kitchen.

The bowl-lift design offers superior mixing performance due to the weight distribution created by the long, wide 2.4 lb (1.1 kg) stainless steel bowl. The mixer’s 2.5 hp (1.7 kW) motor is powerful enough to smash through even the densest ingredients, and the tilt-head design allows you the option to mix wet ingredients on the surface of your counter or in the bowl of a stand mixer or paddle attachment.

The 6 quart capacity isn’t for everyone, however, so we also offer seven different models with smaller capacity options. Our premium 7 quart model is a perfect match for those with a family of four, or for those who need to mix larger volumes of dough and batter.

On the other hand, we also offer our popular 5 quart tilt-head mixer. Made from powerful brushed stainless steel and durable black plastic housing, this machine is built to last and mix for years to come. It has a slim, modern design that fits seamlessly into any kitchen decor, and a compact design that easily fits in the smallest of spaces.

The bowl-lift design offers superior mixing performance due to the weight distribution created by the long, wide 2.4 lb (1.1 kg) stainless steel bowl. If the extra weight of a tilt-head seems too cumbersome for your needs, we have our popular 4.5 quart bowl-lift too. With nearly the same performance and features as the 6 quart model, but with a smaller capacity and adorable red color, this is a great option for those on a smaller budget.

The 3.5-quart mixing bowl is also perfect for blending as it’s very large capacity means that you can work with larger batches of ingredients than with most other brands’ small bowls.

To help you decide which one is right for you, we have a guide that breaks down all of the key benefits of each model and why it might be best for your needs. The guide also shows which models are right for different types of kitchen tasks such as making bread, pizza dough or cake batter, so click through to read through our top reasons for choosing a KitchenAid tilt-head or bowl-lift mixer and make your selection today!

One of the most obvious differences between tilt-head and bowl-lift models is their design. The tilt-head models feature a lever that controls the height of the mixing head, while the bowl-lift models feature a small tower that raises and lowers with a hand crank. This makes it easier to add ingredients while mixing as you can do so without reaching over your head, minimizing the risk of injury.

A similar benefit of this design is that it makes it easier to scrape down the sides of your mixing bowl without having to get in close proximity to the top of your counter or sink.

Tilt-heads are also lighter than bowl-lift models, making them easier to move around the kitchen while they are in operation.

If you have a smaller kitchen or counter space, this is a great benefit. This can be especially useful for those with limited mobility or back problems, who may have difficulty lifting the heavy base and bowl of a bowl-lift machine. This is also a great feature for those who need to transport their mixer to jobsites or other locations.

A tilt-head is also great for keeping your work surface clean because it has no extra protruding parts where you can splatter food and liquids while mixing.

The tilt-head mixer is also a great choice for those who make smaller batches of batter or mix wet ingredients on the surface of the counter.

It’s also a great choice for those who like to do many different kitchen tasks with one machine as you can easily switch between attachments without having to change any settings or remove your bowl.

While both tilt-heads and bowl-lifts offer high stand mixer performance, there are a few aspects in which they differ. Tilt-head models tend to be lighter than bowl-lift models, so they are easier to transport when unassembled and their extra weight isn’t an issue when mixing lighter ingredients like cake batters and doughs.

Furthermore, their stainless steel mixing bowl is much lighter than the weighty, 2.5-kilogram mixing bowl of a bowl-lift model.

This is especially helpful if you have to transport your mixer to different jobsites or move it through narrow hallways often. Since a tilt-head’s (or “stand”) mixing head sits at one fixed height, you can also switch between attachments without having to raise or lower your work surface like you would with a bowl-lift model. This can save precious time when switching between tasks such as kneading dough and beating eggs, especially if you want both tasks done in the same kitchen session.

If you are looking for a mixer with a standard, compact size and intend to use the machine from only its minimum height position, a tilt-head may be exactly what you’re looking for. A bowl-lift model is well-suited to those who have limited space in the kitchen or prefer to mix larger volumes of ingredients at once.

On the other hand, if you need a powerful machine that can mix large batches of ingredients with ease and are willing to compromise on cleanup convenience and mobility, a bowl-lift should be your first pick. Tilt-head models are also heavier than bowl-lift models so they can be less portable if they must travel between jobsites or storage.

What do I need to know about power requirements?

If you are unsure of what kind of power outlet you have, there is a handy guide to help you determine which settings are necessary for your mixer. KitchenAid warranty guidelines require that the machine be plugged into an outlet that’s on voltage. However, it’s important to note that if your mixer does not have an on/off switch that turns the machine off once plugged in, then it must be plugged into a standard 15-amp circuit which will be sufficient for most users.

What is the difference between metal and plastic bowls?

All KitchenAid tilt-head mixers are designed and manufactured with a non-slip bowl handle. This non-slip handle allows you to safely remove your mixing bowl without having to worry about slipping and dropping the bowl, even if it’s wet or filled with ingredients. This feature is almost twice as heavy as the average competing model, which helps to protect your mixer from damage when it’s in use. The 2.4 lb stainless steel bowl also has a nice long handle that extends from the top of the machine to the center of bowl’s rim—this helps to ensure more stable mixing while preventing spills.

Is a tilt head or bowl lift mixer better?

There are plenty of reasons why you might choose a KitchenAid bowl-lift mixer over a tilt-head. Their heavy stainless steel bowl, powerful motor and other premium features make them the perfect choice for those who need to mix large batches of cake batter, cookie dough and other ingredients. On the other hand, if you don’t need to mix large amounts of ingredients at once, you’d rather not get in close proximity with your work surface or require extra counter space, a tilt-head may be just what you’re looking for.

What attachments work with which tilt-head model?

The three most popular KitchenAid stand mixer attachments are the: The spiralizer, pasta maker and fruit and vegetable strainer.

What is bowl lift vs. tilt head?

Tilt-head models are great for those who don’t need to mix larger batches of ingredients at once and like to keep their counters clean while working. On the other hand, if you need to make larger batches of batter or other items frequently, a bowl-lift model may be what you’re looking for.

What is the point of a KitchenAid bowl lift?

Using a bowl-lift attachment allows you to mix larger batches of ingredients easily and more safely. All but one of KitchenAid’s tilt-head models come with a standard non-slip bowl handle that allows you to safely remove your mixing bowl while remaining at a fixed height. The 1.5-kilogram stainless steel mixing bowl on the other hand is much heavier, which means it cannot be easily transported or stored.

CONCLUSION:

The KitchenAid stand mixer WRHB55WH 5″ bowl lift is an excellent choice for those who want to mix large amounts of ingredients or need to do so in a limited space. With a powerful mono-propelled 1700 watt motor, you can create large batches of cake batter, cookie dough or batch after batch of homemade salsa safely and easily. One thing I should note: if you’re looking for a smaller, no frills machine with less powerful features that are designed to perform specific tasks such as kneading dough or whipping egg whites, then the KitchenAid KSM155PS 5″ tilt head may be just what you’re looking for.
