Is that right?
Smeg mixers are 800watt.

What is kitchen aid so low?
Does it affect power?

Am a little confused.

The power of a kitchen aid looks low because of the way the motor works. It is a direct drive motor meaning that all the wattage of the motor goes to the beaters rather than getting lost along the way in cogs and the like.

Yep it's direct drive versus - is it belt drive?

I think so RJ.

I used to sell Kitchen Aids back in 2000, when they were not common.
When we were trained that is what we were told.

So it works just as well?

Thanks for explaining!

Believe me there is no lack of power in my kitchenaid. I replaced a kenwood chef with a kitchenaid and the difference in speed of beating cream etc is startling. I kept overbeating initially as I was so used to the kenwood chef taking so much longer.

I have a Kitchen Aid and it's brilliant, very powerful and strong. I would not be without it. I've used it to make dough and it does not struggle. I'm sure there will be YouTube vids showing Kitchen Aids in action if you'd like to see before making your mind up. HTH.

Sorry to barge in but what's a good price for a kitchen aid stand mixer?

Best place to by one from Fox is Harts of Stur. Great shop that I have got to in person many times and now buy from online. Always cheapest.
If you aren't; fussed about the colour buy the Kitchen Aid Classic. Every slightly smaller bowls but that is about it
