Swapping KitchenAid KSM55 Mixer with European Model 5KSM60SPXBPT

I have exactly the same with my KSM55... I would like to do the swap too. Have you done yours? Have you identified the model in Europe that is the match? I think it's probably MIXER BOWL-LIFT 5.6L - ARTISAN - 5KSM60SPXBPT. Can anyone share thoughts on this? The bowl capacity seems slightly diffferent 5.5 vs 5.6. Also wattage says 375? I am very confused as my US one says 500W. So would this mean I would be changing to a weaker motor? Any further advice would be hugely appreciated and I think this issue is now faced by an increasing number of people.

Key considerations for your swap:

  • Wattage and Power: The European model (5KSM60SPXBPT) has a lower wattage (375W) compared to the U.S. model (KSM55) which operates at 500W. This difference could imply a difference in motor strength and performance.
  • Bowl Capacity: The European model has a slightly larger bowl capacity (5.6L or 5.9 Quarts) compared to the U.S. model (5.5 Quarts).
  • Voltage Compatibility: It’s important to note the voltage difference between the U.S. and Europe. While a U.S. unit can technically work in Europe, it may not function optimally and could potentially overheat due to the difference in voltage.
  • Physical Size and Weight: There are also differences in size and weight between the two models, which might be a factor depending on your kitchen space and usage preferences.
  • Warranty and Service: Ensure that warranty and service options are available in your region for the model you choose.

Voltage Compatibility:

  • KitchenAid mixers manufactured for North America are designed for use with 120-volt electricity (U.S. units typically operate at 110V).
  • European electricity runs on 220V.
  • While U.S. units technically can work in Europe, it's not recommended as it might slow down the unit and cause overheating. However, KitchenAid mixers can operate on 220, 230, or 240 volts electricity, which includes most regions outside of North America
