KitchenAid KSM152PSCR 5-Qt. Stand Mixer Review

This unit from KitchenAid is recommended for the true, hardcore culinary experts. The amount of features and accessories that it offers are best suited for the professional chefs who want the same quality mixer for their home as they would have at their place of business. It probably goes without saying that this one doesn’t come cheap but you certainly get what you pay for with the KSM152PSCR, a stand mixer that offers 10 speeds, multiple optional attachments and a robust power hub that can take on every culinary job you need to accomplish. In our opinion, it is the best stand mixer of the year at this price point and should be considered by all consumers looking for an unit of this size and capacity.

Take This One For a Spin

The KSM152PSCR features some of the most efficient and useful planetary mixing you’ll find any home mixer. This unit brings 59 touch-points per rotation around the bowl for complete mixing of your ingredients without any empty or untouched areas, as the beater, hook, or wire whip rotates around the bowl. This planetary motion ensures all of your ingredients will be brought together without fail inside the included 5-Quart stainless steel bowl with comfortable handle. With that much room, you can whip up enough dough to make 9 dozen cookies, 4 loaves of bread or 7 pounds of mashed potatoes at a time. When you’re all done, the bowl is dishwasher safe so cleanup is a cinch.

The Proof is in the Power Hub

The power hub is where all of the magic happens in your kitchen. With up to 15 optional attachments available for use on the KSM152PSCR, there are simply no limits to your culinary imagination. Make pasta from scratch, grate cheese, peel, core and slice fruits and vegetables, you can even make ice cream with all of the attachment options that are compatible with this unit. This mixer does the work of so many other appliances in just one product! Of course, you can also mix, knead, and blend with it and you get 10 speed settings powerful enough to handle whatever might be called for in your recipes.

The Right Tool for the Job

The KSM152PSCR comes with detachable mixing wands in the form of one nylon coated flat beater, one nylon coated C-shaped dough hook, and one 6-wire whip. Swap them out depending upon the type of job you need the mixer to handle. We all know things can get messy in the kitchen so you also get a 1-piece pouring shield for keeping ingredients in the bowl while you’re mixing. This way you can add items during operation and prevent the lightweight elements like flour from getting blown all over the counter-top.

Summing Up

The price is a bit steep, that’s for sure, but we feel that the KSM152PSCR is the perfect unit for those consumers who are in the market to spend a little extra for one high-quality appliance that can perform the duties of so many more. In the long run, this one may actually save you money since you won’t need to buy separate appliances to perform all of the duties that this one can accomplish. This is a true all-in-one mixer that you can rely on for years to come.
