Product Details

KitchenAid NSF Certified Commercial Series Onyx Black Stand Mixer, Model KSM8990OB

KitchenAid® NSF Certified® Commercial Series 8-Qt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer with 1.3 HP Motor horsepower for our mixer motors was measured using a dynamometer, a machine laboratories routinely use to measure the mechanical power of motors. Our 1.3 horsepower (HP) motor reference reflects the horsepower rating of the motor itself and not the mixer’s horsepower output to the mixer bowl. This robust motor, the backbone of our new mixer, delivers .44 HP to the bowl enabling your mixer to deliver consistent power to small and large loads with less heat build-up; resulting in years of dependable mixing. When combined with and guided by our new advanced motor control board, this is our longest lasting and most efficient motor yet. Simply put, our new, highly efficient, special purpose motor delivers the power you need when you need it.

  • NSF® certified
  • 8-Qt. Stainless Steel Bowl
  • Professional bowl-lift design raises bowl into mixing position

I am a professional baker and I am using this mixer to make batches of croissant and brioche doughs. I am tough on mixers and so far this machine has held it's own. I am achieving proper dough development without overworking the dough as I have in the past with smaller machines. I am very pleased.

We purchased 2 of these stand mixers. After much research on stand mixers, we decided to go with this brand and model vs Hobart. One of the mixers is currently running great. The other arrived in what seemed to be ok condition, however made a clanking noise which we thought was the beater hitting the bowl. Did the adjustment, but still heard the noise. Soon after the mixer started to get louder, and so we tested it without the attachments and found that there was definitely something wrong. We are in the process of sending it back. We are really hard on our equipment and this is a real acid test. All in all we are satisfied with the product. At least for now.

        Comments about KitchenAid NSF Certified Empire Red Mixer:

        I have gotten into baking homemade bread in past few years. I had been using my Kitchenaid Artisan Stand mixer. It did ok but as I started making more rustic and heavier dough, the Artisan would start to labor, so I decided to look for upgrade.I found the Kitchenaid Commercial, I could not find a great deal of information on this mixer, but I was happy enough withe my Artisan, so I decided to give the Commercial a shot, as it was much more powerful, had the upgraded dough hook,and large 8 at bowl. Again my main use would be bread dough. I got my new mixer Thanksgiving week 2015. Even though I purchased primarily for dough, my first task would be 10 lbs mashed potatoes for family thanksgiving. First let me say all the attachments are great heave quality, not that my Artisan are not good quality, but the Commercial attachments are over the top. This mixer knocked out 10 lbs of mashed potatoes in no time at all, and worked flawlessly. Next task, now for my bread dough. I did not do a large receipt, I had 3 cups of bread flour and 1 cup of cracked wheat flour, malt,yeast. I began to knead, the machine had plenty of power, but the bowl had movement and I could hear the metal bowl rubbing the bowl clip on the stand. I continued on with my knead for 8 minutes, the dough was great, but this bowl slip/noise really bothered me. The next day I tried with more dough, basically just to check out the problem. I made sure bowl was properly secured, and that the problem was not user error. It just did not seem to me that there should be any movement or metal rubbing or hitting noise, in a machine of this price. My smaller Artisan makes no noise, as the bowl does attach in different fashion. So I called Kitchenaid Customer Service, and man let me tell you, their CS is second to none. I explained my concern, the rep told me she was not in the Commercial department, but ask me to stay online,and she would bring a commercial rep into our conversation. After another explanation they informed me they wanted to replace my mixer, said they were shipping out a new unit and asks me to put my mixer in box of replacement box and send it back to them. You can't ask for anything more than that. My new mixer is great and quiet, no noise no problem. After comparing the two mixers, I think the problem was a defective bowl, not the mixer itself, regardless, they took care of me, and I am very pleased with the performance of this mixer, the size is a little bigger, but not a beast, on my counter. The commercial does not have a tilt head, that takes a bit of getting used to, but I understand the design is what it is. I have now had this mixer for about a month and have used it about half dozen times, and I am happy with my purchase. Don't think you can go wrong here, I am not a commercial baker, just wanted a premium mixer for home use making rustic bread dough, and I now have it.

        8 Quarts and 1.3 HP, a real man's dream machine!

              Comments about KitchenAid NSF Certified Empire Red Mixer:

              When my new 8 Qt, 1.3A commercial mixer from the on-line store (via Fed Ex & dropped outside my front door while I was gone) arrived broken and just 14 days before Thanksgiving, I thought for sure my TG baking plans would have to be greatly reduced. A quick call to the Kitchenaid number listed right on the product brought immediate help. A new mixer was ordered and a free shipping label to return the broken product provided in only a few minutes. The new mixer arrived within 3 business days (Fed Ex hand delivered and signature required). Happily, I brought 6 loaves of 9-grain sourdough bread and 2 pumpkin pies to our TG family gathering. All were freshly baked in one day. GREAT customer service in getting a new machine to me quickly. Thank you Kitchenaid!

              What I love most about this new mixer is the "dough hook." The new design of this hook looks more like a screw burrowing into the dough and kneading it against the side of the bowl. It does a fantastic job of incorporating ingredients (like raisins and nuts) into the dough so that they are much more uniformly distributed throughout the bread than I could ever get when doing it by hand or using my old 5 Qt Kitchenaid dough hook. The same goes for the quick and uniform incorporation of various grains and ingredients.

              I dumped all the sourdough starter, bread flour, salt, oil, and water into the bowl at once; raised the bowl up into the dough hook, and turned on the machine. No flour went flying out of the bowl because there is a "slow-startup" built into the machine that prevents the flipping of flour out of the bowl. Consequently, there is no need for the bothersome plastic rim protectors used on the 5 quart model. I did need to stop and scrape a small amount of flour up from the bottom.

              The paddle attachment is adjusted to just clear the bottom of the bowl (easy access screw adjustment without removing any access panels if adjustment is needed) so it easily mixes all ingredients to the bottom of the bowl. No scraping has been necessary when using the paddle.

              The only slight negative about this machine is the need to stop the machine to add ingredients as the mixing blade is moving into the ingredient stream constantly.

              All-in-all, I would highly recommend this machine as a truly functional, powerful, quiet, easy to clean, and well-designed mixer.

              Oh, did I mention? The CUSTOMER SERVICE IS STELLAR!!!

                    I did a great deal of research on the various Kitchenaid mixers, as we just built a pizza oven and have a mile-long list of guests who want to come for dinner this next year! The mixer is being used for the thick dough, so I worried about the pull on the motor. I was SO thankful that one of the reviews I read suggested paying just a little bit more and going for this commercial model. My husband loves to cook, but has always used a hand-held Kitchenaide, but this machine has him sold on the stand mixer for dough!

                                      I have used my new mixer for very large batches of rolls and cookies. I love it. The motor runs quieter than my 6 qt kitchenaid. I like the fact that the bowl and beaters are all dishwasher safe. I also have a 4.5 qt mixer that I purchased in 1969. I firmly believe in Kitchenaid quality.

                                                              Blissfully quiet, very powerful and all the attachments and mixing bowl goes into the dishwasher! We make bread twice a weeek and pizza a couple times a month, unlike the home models the commercial mixer really does have the power to handle multiple batches of dough. I've come to love the commercial grade orange electrical cord that I originally regarded as an eye sore!

                                                              Though we're not a commerical kitchen, we do often make food in industrial quantities for friends and family. This is the mixer that makes sense for people like us, who cook for crowds.
