WonderMix Deluxe Mixer
This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
The WonderMix is an exciting new entry in the field of heavy duty stand mixers. Its German-engineered design has the strength to mix the heaviest batters and the versatility to perform the full range of tasks you need your primary food prep machine to handle.
The WonderMix is made by the manufacturer of the popular WonderMill electric grain mill. Its design is based on an existing successful German design, with upgrades to the motor and transmission. At 900 watts, the WonderMix now has the most power of any German mixer design. This power is connected by direct drive to the blender, providing extremely powerful blending results. The motor has three speeds as well as a pulse feature.
Connecting the motor’s 900 watts of power to the bowl drive is a drive train of exceptionally heavy duty gears in a sealed metal enclosure. Permanently lubricated, the gears are made of an advanced polymer material for extremely long life even under hard and steady use. The transmission is the Achilles heel of many mixers; in the WonderMix it’s a strong point.
The Tru-Mix dough hook mixes and kneads quickly and thoroughly. The mixing bowl’s 5.5 quart capacity allows you to mix dough for up to six loaves of bread (or less if you wish), and the Tru-Mix dough hook takes only about five minutes to completely knead even a full load of dough. The circulatory kneading of the WonderMix does an excellent job of developing gluten, so your dough will rise properly and your baked goods will have the light and uniform texture you want. A comfortable handle gives you a secure grip on the bowl, and the bowl locks positively on the mixer base.
Soft silicone feet provide a good grip on your counter, and combined with the proportions of the mixer bowl, let you mix and knead small or large batches without having the mixer “walk” on your countertop. The bowl’s center drive shaft separates from the bowl, making both shaft and bowl easy to clean up (and both are dishwasher safe.)
The WonderMix has no overhead gearbox, because it's powered from below—a design with several advantages. The wide base of the machine provides space to transmit motor power to the bowl using extra large, high strength gears. The gears in overhead-driven machines are small and prone to breaking, they transmit torque inefficiently, and the heat in their tight enclosure leads to early failure when worked hard. In contrast to top heavy overhead-drive machines, the bottom drive design gives the WonderMix a very low center of gravity that makes it very easy and comfortable to handle. Bottom drive also provides full bowl access. You see everything that's happening in the bowl, and adding ingredients is super easy.
The BPA-free bowl of the WonderMix is shaped like a large bundt cake form, a design that excels at both mixing and whipping. Twin whips mount on top of the narrow center column, driven from below, and they spin rapidly as they rotate. The bowl's shape ensures that your ingredients are mixed perfectly, as lumps can't escape the whisks.
Does your family cook gluten-free? The WonderMix provides the control you need to make delicious gluten-free recipes, tailored specifically to your family's needs. Nothing approaches the tastiness of homemade and fresh!
The deluxe package includes the mixing bowl with drive shaft, splash ring and lid, Tru-Mix dough hook, French whips, Turbo blender and the cookie whips. If you need a replacement of any of these items, see our WonderMix brand page.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DXD||An item that we no longer sell new in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SD||Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

I really like my Wondermix! I wanted something with power like the Bosch but didn't want to pay the higher price. Many like the KA mixers but they don't have power like the Bosch and Wondermix do, so I chose this and I'm glad I did!7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
