KitchenAid provides instructions for operating its mixers on its website, KitchenAid.com. From the website's home page, click on Service & Support, and select Manuals & Literature from the drop-down menu. Enter the mixer's model number to access a PDF file of the owner's manual, which features instructions and recipes.
The model number on a KitchenAid stand mixer is located on the bottom and back. On a hand mixer, it is located on the bottom, next to the attachment holders. Instruction manuals are also located by browsing the mixers under Countertop Appliances on the website, clicking on a model, selecting the Manuals tab on the product page, and downloading the Use & Care Guide.
