It's a bit less powerfull I think (25W less). Also, think the bowl is a bit different. What are your needs, frequency you'll use it and for how much peoples on an average?

I've been thinking about one of these for some time now, what does this model lack vs a more powerful model?
I'm mainly interested in basic baking mix, kneading dough, and possible pasta/meat grinder add-on.

For denser bread doughs, the Ultra (300W) or the Classic Plus (275W) should be the minimum. They may struggle with 2 loaves, but should be fine for 1 loaf. The Artisan (325W) is fine for 2 loaves, but still should not be done every day. The regular Classic or Artisan Mini (250W) may have trouble with even a single loaf, but have no problem with things like cake mixes.
They should all be able to use the pasta and meat grinders, but need to rest for about an hour after every few pounds.

For those who may be interested in the Artisan, I just bought an Artisan refurb on the Kitchenaid site for $209 + 10% off from the signup email.

The refurbished comes with warranty but it's very short isn't it? Though I don't know how their warranty even works I carrying wouldn't pay cost to ship them the whole thing!

A long time ago, I was shopping for standup mixers. Most of the new kitchen Aid motor contains plastic gears. The only model (at that time) that I know kitchen Aid have metal gear box was the professional series.
after research, I ended up with a Kenwood mixer. I have had mine for over 5 years now and it is just as powerful as day one. I use it to make all sorts of stuff, bread, chinese toss noodles, beef balls. Best investiment.
the mixer here is probably good to hobbyists and not serious home cooking.

Costco has the kenwood on sale but sold out at this time...probably for obvious reasons.

Which kenwood do you have? On their site they have the Chef and Chef Major (looks like costco is the chef major or a custom variation of it?) whereas I also see references to a kmix model, though that's not listed on their site

I have the titanium chef major. I believe it was sizing difference. . major being larger. Then there are cooking chef with heating option.
Which I don’t care for. Btw, when shopping for standup mixers. Wattage doesn’t mean a lot..it is about how long it can sustain that power. I love the attachment option. I have never had a mixer’s attach actually works good. They are always mediocre. But these actually works! Specially love my purée attachment :P

Last question (I think!) - as you have the larger chef major, how does it handle smaller batches? At least in reviews they often compare whipping a single egg white, which often times the larger ones fail at.

Haha...I really am not sure. I can’t say as in my real life cooking in the past 5 rears with this mixer...I have never had to do just ONE egg white??
But I don’t see why not as the paddles and whisk are all adjustable. And my wisk is at the bottom of the bow. I would also buy the paddle with silicone paddle.

Hmmm it should work though, if you put the code in during checkout. Worked for me and a few other people here.

I scored a Chef on Amazon for $350. It goes on sale once or twice a year. Very powerful mixer, definitely more so than my Kitchen Aid bowl lift. The bowl is 5 qt instead of Major's 7qt, and it's 750W to Major's 800W. That's all the difference I think.

What were the contents of the refurbished model? It doesn't say on the website.
