KitchenAid Clone from Aldi $199

150

Not sure if this is a great deal or not, so let the votes decide, but its probably the closest any tightarse Ozbargainer is going to get to owning a kitchenaid.

Features
1000W
Full die cast base
4.7L stainless steel mixing bowl
10 speed operation
Tilt head function
Internal light which illuminates into bowl
Robust metal gear system with 67 touch points for complete mixing
Accessories include: flat beater, dough hook, wire whip and splash cover/pouring shield

In Comparison
The KitchenAid ArtisanĀ® Stand Mixer claims
67 different touch-points within the bowl for quick, complete mixing
5 year parts and labour warranty
10 speeds straight from the 300-watt motor to the beater

So with the aldi clone at 1/3 the price and 3x the power with a 3 year warranty looks like we might have a winner?

    How does it compare with Kogan's 1000W for $50 less? (apart from being able to get it instantly from a bricks n mortar store & 60 day return policy)

    Aldi's one is probably superior build quality?

      The Logan one says it's made from abs plastic, so one of ould think this is better as it's made from die cast steel

    I don't really have any input for this deal but I always loved them as a kid even though I have never used one and rarely saw one used.

    Always wanted to buy a Kenwood or Sunbeam one one day when I grew up, still waiting for that day to come.

    •  

      Of the two, go Kenwood.

      crazy as it may sound that day may be here ezarc!

    parallel import a kitchenaid from the USA and get a 500w power converter

    •  

      Excellent machine, but not many people willing to pay 3.5 times as much.

      Yeah.Nah

      It's a good solution. But shame that the converter takes up so much valuable bench real estate though. Then there are all the warranty worries.

    Uooooh it comes in red!!

      Aldi should do a video on dough mixing. I wonder if this machine able to mix a 2kg bread dough.

      • +1 vote

        The KitchenAid isn't rated to handle that much dough (rated to 1.15kg). It wouldn't be a stain on the Aldi if it too couldn't do it.

        •  

          The KitchebAid has 500W motor which handles 1.15kg bread dough and the Aldi has 1000W should hand twice as much weight, no? Anyone brought this machine and able to answer this question?

        •  

          Cars with twice as much horsepower as another don't normally go twice as fast.

          @spillmill

          You're confusing Torque with Speed. A car with twice as much horsepower will have twice the pulling power. Thus, a 1000W mixer should (theoretically) pull about twice as much dough as one with 500W rating, albeit with a similar or slower speed.

        • +1 vote

          basin size and mixer would come into play if they were similar size across both units

          factor in friction and perhaps less than double the capacity accordingly

        • +4 votes

          That's a power draw figure, not power output. And it's difficult to tell the capacity of a machine because actual torque figures are never given.

          Drawing conclusions about power output based on power input is not wise in the case of kitchen mixers (ie, artisan is 300 watt and can handle 1.15kg; Kenwood kmm770 is 1200 watt - 4 times the "power" - but is rated to just over 2kg - less than twice as much).

          One of the reasons for the difference may be the efficiency of the design: turning electrical into mechanical. KitchenAid uses direct drive whereas a Kenwood is belt driven.

          In summary: unfortunately supplied power input figures are usually unhelpful.

    i have seen it in catalogue the other day…. i think the quality is probably ok as they are brave enough to offer 3 year warranty

    looks nice! I Was looking at the sunbeam cafe series one, but that is priced at $449 ! Spec wise this aldi one is everything the sunbeam has to offer but at a reduced price! :)

  • +1 vote

    I have the sunbeam, and have been very happy with it but paid $150 more (about 12 months ago) and would have happily brought this one had it been around then. I use it 2 to 4 times per week and find I can do a batch of muffins or a cake now whilst doing dinner, and pop it in the oven while we eat.

    In terms of the quality all the appliances I have brought so far from Aldi have been great buying and so far lasted well. So I think its another good buy from Aldi - Happy Baking

    I'm a little bit apprehensive about the dough hook being plastic and not metal. I've only every used mixers with metal hooks.

    Bought. Looks good except few cheap plastic stuff. I dont quite like the feel of the speed control knob.

    But good value for money.

    Got it today. Quality looks good considering the price. All accessories are metal with plastic coating.

    Purchased this and made pizza dough. Very Happy with results made enough dough for three large pizzas in about 2 min. I used to be a pizza chef so I am pretty fussy about dough. This machine is very solid and looks good. Absolutely rapt with the purchase and is an absolute bargain. With the added bonus of a three year warranty.

      Any chance you can share your pizza dough recipe? ;)
