Does KitchenAid 5 quart bowl fit a 4.5 quart?
KitchenAid 5-Quart Polished Stainless Steel Bowl w/Handle | Fits 4.5-Quart & 5-Quart KitchenAid Tilt-Head Stand Mixers. Upgrade your KitchenAid Arsenal with the 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stainless Steel Bowl.
On the side of your stand mixer, in the silver strip, there should be a label either saying: Mini, Classic, Artisan or Professional:
- Mini has a capacity of 3.3L (3.5 quart)
- Classic has a capacity of 4.3L (4.5 quart)
- Artisan has a capacity of 4.8L (5 quart)
Look on the bottom of the bowl, where the capacity is noted. A 4 qt. bowl will be marked “K4,” a 4.5 qt. bowl “K45,” a 5 qt.
Power: The 4.5-quart KitchenAid Stand Mixer provides you with 275W of mixing power and a bowl large enough to mix dough for up to six dozen cookies or three loaves of bread. This size model is ideal for making cakes, cookies, homemade pasta dough, and light breads.
KitchenAid appears to be discontinuing this series, resulting in the huge discount. If you’re worried that the closeout sale has to do with the mixer’s quality, fear not — the Architect is highly rated, and is almost identical to the more popular Artisan series.
The Classic Plus can handle an occasional loaf of bread, about once a week or so. The Artisan can handle regular kneading of bread dough, the recommended amount is about 4 cups of flour or less. As a note, when using either model, you should not exceed speed 2 for heavy doughs like bread.
The Custom Metallic series is the upper crust of the Artisan models with stunning, high end metal finishes. This Artisan Mixer comes with the same accessories as the standard KitchenAid Artisan Mixer with a stainless steel bowl with handle, coated beater, coated dough hook and wire whip.
