Deal Details

Last Edited by ShengD January 23, 2014 at 11:02 PM
There have been quite a few closeout deals recently for Kitchenaid Mixers. I returned my recent Lowe's 275W deal (unopenned) after finding this one.

This model is a 6-qt, 1hp professional model, for $299 out-the-door. If you want it shipped, that's an extra $16.99. The ice-cream attachment ($80 value) is available free with a mail-in rebate. All colors are available (white/red/black/silver) depending on your local store and online.

This is quite a fine deal, compared to the closest comparable one on Amazon (575W) for $419 without the attachment: Link for comparison [amazon.com]

I have this same mixer and the ice cream attachment, and they're both great. This mixer has the exact same motor as the commercial model.

per some of the reviews on Costco...

Works well...But the Ice Cream Attachment (KICI0WP0) shipped from KitchenAid does not fit the mixer from Costco.

They do NOT make a 6 qt bowl that will fit this model that can use a pouring shield
(bowl it comes with is not 6qt. )

Various other complaints about the motor not seeming to be up to the specs. Sadly, although I want one, I think I'll wait till a non-Costco special edition is again on sale.

Tempting but hesitant to buy after hearing that this is a Costco specific model and that some people were having issues with attachment compatibility... One reviewer posted on the Costco product page saying that their ice cream attachment didn't fit (review was dated 1/5/2014).

Seems like a good deal though.

Thanks for catching those comments. The feedback is valuable.


If you aren't feeling completely comfortable, keep in mind that Costco has a nearly limitless return policy on such items. I would definitely consider attachment incompatibility to be a valid reason for return - if that problem ever arises.

What do you mean by limitless?

I just bought this very same model from Costco, and have mailed in for the free ice cream maker attachment.

This model is NOT 750W. It's actually 350W. It uses the 1HP motor, but does not max out the power. This is stated in small print on the box (it says it only uses 0.4HP), and says 350W on the bottom of the mixer.

I don't really care about that, since it's still a good price for what it is.

Costco is famous for their generous return policy (Don't just take my word for it. Ask Google). They accept returns many years after the purchase, with only the exception of a few electronic devices such as TVs and computers.

Whoa, this is good to know. If true, this seriously cuts back on the biggest perk of this model. Can anyone confirm or explain this significant discrepancy.

**Edited: Well, the Costco online description doesn't say anything about 750 watts, or being "like" the 7 qt. Pro. It "does" have a bowl lift. Sam's Club has 5 Qt. Professional HD 475 watt bowl lift mixers for $299 also (GREAT COLORS!!). Appears the Costco one was $289 for some time last fall.

Have to wonder how much wattage (or HP) the smaller models are actually delivering to the bowl, so we can compare apples to apples, but my suspicion is that this model is putting out far more power than the smaller models.

In the alternative, a larger motor running at a fraction of capacity would almost certainly last much longer than a small motor at near max power.

Besides the negatives mentioned already, my sister, who has this model, complains that the paddle and other attachments don't reach the edges of the bowl and leave unmixed ingredients around the edge. Also that the 6 qt bowl is too large for most jobs, and she actually prefers to use an old, smaller mixer for most jobs.

I'm still tempted to try this mixer, despite the warnings. What can I say - I love HP, and Costco's return policy is certainly stellar. I certainly don't feel bad returning items that have design flaws.

That's how motors work bud. Automobiles, and anything else the same. A 5.9L cummins will boast 359hp, but at the wheel it's more likely to deliver 210HP. The trick in engineering, where applicable, is to safely deliver more hp to the wheel at no cost in safety to the mechanical parts and engine, as well as operators. This is not a design flaw, nor misrepresentation in facts. The motor DOES produce 1HP, however once the power reaches the bowl, it comes out to more or less their stated 0.4HP. Technical terms left out for simplicity. It's a conversion of energy.

An image from a link another user posted. http://costcocouple.com/wp-conten...60x480.jpg

"Powerful, 1 HP DC Motor. 1 HP high efficiency DC motor is designed to run longer and delivers optimum torque with less heat build-up. Delivering .4HP in the bowl...."

I brought this same model at costco last year, and everything fit fine. I got the ice cream bowl and it work perfectly. People that are costco member and wants to buy this but afraid of review, should cancel their membership! You should know their return policy is awesome. Buy it Now. Return it in two years lol

Actually, it's not 350W either. This model sold by Costco (593241) is KitchenAid's model KSM6573C (seen on the box), which is a store-version of the KP26M1x series... the KitchenAid Professional 600. I have that model, and it's a 575W appliance.

Very good power, although ours stopped working after about 15 months, as the metal gears in the transmission housing had stripped. Very annoying, but repaired it for about $30 using replacement parts and online instructions.
