Rev-a-Shelf Heavy-Duty Mixer Lift

Item #
88% of 100

Mixers are extremely helpful but can also be extremely heavy. They can also take up much needed space if left out on the counter making it necessary to lift and put away the mixer only to have to lift it back out again later. 

The Heavy-Duty Mixer Lift from Rev-a-Shelf allows you to easily raise your mixer (holds up to 60lbs) out of its cabinet to counter-top level. This gives you easy access to your mixer in seconds without having to lift such a heavy appliance. To lift your mixer gently pull it up and fix it into position by sliding the lock back. When you are ready to put your mixer away all you need to do is pull the lock out and gently slide the mixer back into the cabinet.

Rev-a-Shelf's heavy-duty mixer features built-in shock dampers which allow for a smooth movement when going up or down. This lift also features an adjustable spring tension mechanism which helps ease the effort of lifting or lowering the mixer. The mixer lift can be adjusted to several different weight capacities: 0-20lbs, 20-30lbs and 30-60lbs.

mixer lift
Love this! I have wanted a lift for the kitchen aid mixer for a long time now, and it's as awesome as I'd hoped it would be. It was factory-set for the standard size mixer but my carpenter tells me that it can be adjusted to handle the larger size mixer as well.

What if all cabinets have a drawer on top will this work?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It did not work for me. I removed the draw and installed at the bottom. Moved door up and installed Rev-a-Shelf.
The left hand pictures shows the lift under a drawer, is it the same one only different installation?
Deb S on Feb 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have installed these lift kits before. The lift shown in the picture works on the same principles as the Rockler lift. I believe that the Rockler lifts are white and the handles are a little different, they are a little more tucked under the shelf and smaller. The Rockler kit should do just fine for you. (when mixer is lifted do not block a drawer that you need the baking utensils in as it will not allow a drawer to open in the "up" position.)
Is my technical support worth a reward? Thanks!!
Any reason you couldn't turn the shelf sideways for shallow but wide cabinets? (Mixer comes up sideways...)
Chris S on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: First of all, I did not install the shelf as intended, either. I used it to support two large model train transformers so they could be lowered under the train table, to make them less conspicuous when not in use. To accomplish this I needed to widen the design intent side to side cabinet width. I built a separate structure to accommodate the wider platform dimensions. The "hinge" locations were relocated so the swing path of the platform would end up adjacent to the train table top in the "up" position. I recall having a clearance problem with the linkage contacting the cabinet sides, somehow I resolved this issue. The other problem was related to the "booster" spring not having quite enough available force to easily lock the platform in the up position due to the heavier mass of the transformers.

I cannot think of an obvious reason why the mixer platform and mechanism would not function if installed sideways (if sufficient operating envelope and clearance for the mixer exists). Two potential problems: First, are the attachments for the now inboard and outboard brackets accessible for installation? Secondly, the design of the mixer lift mechanism was intended for the operator/owner to be directly in front of the system. Lifting and pulling the mixer forward and up is easily accomplished because the load is reasonably centered in front of you. The locking and release "L" shaped handles are to the left and right of the mixer and project forward. If the mixer lift mechanism is installed sideways (i.e. 90 degrees rotated from design intent), you may have difficulty reaching into the cabinet to raise the mixer and may have a problem latching/releasing the table locks.

I hope this information is of some help,
R. Morrison
Does lift come with board to set mix master on?
Dan R on Feb 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It comes with hardware only, no board. Each location will be somewhat different in size, so you will need to custom fit your own piece of wood as a shelf.
How do I get the shelf?
Lisa M on Jul 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am assuming you are talking about the wooden shelf the mixer sits on ?? You just make it yourself to fit your particular cabinet width. I built my counter tops with white ash and I used some of that to build the shelf. A piece of 3/4 inch plywood will make a good shelf if you do not have material on hand.
Installing it can be a little awkward since you have to install the lift brackets first, then make and install the shelf, which necessitates running screws in from underneath, but it is not that hard, just clamp it in place and pre-drill your mounting holes.
We love our lift, it operates very smoothly and works very easily. We make bread dough primarily and since it is pretty stiff stuff we do move the mixer on to the countertop for use. Otherwise I'm afraid the mixer might vibrate off the lift.
Good luck
Can I put this in a mobile cabinet with casters? Will I need to provide some counter-weights?
John M on Sep 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That will depend on how wide your cabinet base is. This thing is pretty heavy duty and can hold a lot of weight so a wide base would provide support. Plus, you will definitely need locking casters!
Does price include 2 hinges as shown in picture?
C T on Oct 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does
The specifications say full cabinet....can you install this with a drawer above?
Kimberlie C on Oct 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can if there is the required amount of space is below the drawer. Leaving the drawer above the shelf has two down sides I decided to avoid: (1) cannot use drawer when shelf is raised; (2) puts the level of the shelf below the level of the counter.

I also had a drawer in the cabinet where I installed by shelf. I removed the drawer and the rail that separated the drawer opening from the open cabinet below and reinstalled the drawer at the bottom of the cabinet, below the shelf when the shelf is in the stored position. I took the drawer-front off the drawer so it would fit inside the (now taller) cabinet. The downside of this decision is I had to order a new door for the cabinet since the original door was now too short (fortunately for me, I was able to identify the cabinet manufacturer). It might have been possible to reinstall the drawer at the bottom of the cabinet, reinstall the rail above the drawer and reinstall the original cabinet door above the relocated drawer.
Can I install this so my Kitchenaid fits sideways? Is the lift mount width adjustable?
Jim on Aug 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The lift comes in two pieces, one for each side of your cabinet. They are connected by the shelf and nothing else, so yes, you can make the width anything you want. You can also vary the depth. I have the "standard " size Kitchen aid [5 1/2 qt I think?] and I mounted it as directed in the lift instructions. This makes it about even with the countertop when installed but the mixer narrowly misses the top of the cabinet opening when raising the lift. If you have one of the large [6 qt?] mixers you will probably want to install the lift a couple of inches lower than the directions call for. FYI, I am usually making bread dough which is stiff and works the mixer pretty hard so I have never tried to run the unit while it is sitting on the lift. I always move it on to the countertop for use. hope this helps.
want to use w/ a Underwood #5 cast iron typewriter about 30lb. to clear it fm. desk top when not in use. is this solid enough so it won't sway in any direction?
stu h on Dec 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I’d say no to that. The shelf, when fully extended, is very stable and solid while holding the weight of the mixer but a side to side motion can be produced very easily although it has no negative effect for the mixer. I don’t know how much swaying you can put up with.
I have used this lift for several years and the shelf tips slightly forward ( so the mixer slides downhill) and I had to take the mixer off. How do I adjust the lift so the shelf is level? Also, there is a warning sticker on the side of the lift that I had not seen before which says “Any Equipment Used With This Appliance Lift Should Be Securely Fastened To The Shelf.” Odd that the installer never did it or told me! How do I attach the Kitchenaid Artisan mixer? I was thinking there should be a rim around the lift board, but never thought ther was a way to attach the mixer itself.
Lynn A. W on Aug 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My wife loves her mixer stand and I did install ours. Two different ways to correct the out of level issue would be to remove all but one mounting screw on each of the back mounting brackets, move the assembly into a level position and re-attach all screws. #2 would be to raise the shelf from it's storage position, loosen the back mounting screws and remove those in the front. Shim between the shelf and the bracket until level and tighten/reinstall the screws. We have never had an issue by not attaching the appliance, and have had grand kids using it with grandma. Making the shelf level should correct anything that way but some well placed strips should solve that too if necessary. Making it permanent in our house wouldn't be an option for reasons of being able to clean after use.
Hope this helps!
Can this be installed in a base cabinet with a draw on top?
Pat D on Jul 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can but will eliminate any useful storage below when the appliance is not in use, it will be the drawer depth below the counter tops but the grandkids love it that way
Will this lift work on a cabinet with a drawer above it?
Charlotte on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will work perfectly fine. I've installed 2 or 3 of these and they have all been installed with a drawer above the unit.
Is the mixing bowl locking plate used to mount the mixer to the mixer lift shelf?
Jim B on Oct 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our unit is a fairly old one and has no mounting plate. As such we just sit ours on the shelf. It has rubber non-skid feet and doesn't seem to move at all. It stays in place just fine while raising and lowering.
I do not have a space without a drawer. Can the mixer lift be mounted below the drawer?
dddc29 on Aug 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I suppose it could be installed below a drawer, but question two things:

1. Is the space between bottom of drawer and bottom of cabinet sufficient to accommodate lifter?

2. If it fits, will the drawer above adversely affect comfortable operating height?

My cabinet is 18" deep will this unit work?
Ryan M on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, your cabinet needs to be about 24" deep.
I feel like we should bolt the mixer to the shelf to avoid a fall. Any ideas?
Daire F on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are really concerned you could remove the feet and drill holes through the shelf and use longer screws to fit into the holes where the feet mounted. I would use some rubber between the mixer and the shelf for vibration. Ours just sits on the shelf and we have had no issues so I have never bothered mounting it.
How wide a cabinet does this lift need. Minimim width required. Thanks
Lissa F on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought one of these for my wife a couple of years ago but had not figured out where to put it as we have an older home. I took a base cabinet , removed the shelf then added an upright divider , making it into two separate areas. Inside measure for mixer is 15 1/2 inches for a 12 inch wide shelf for the mixer. I had to make an adjustment to install instructions due to the front trim of our cabinets is taller that newer ones.
Does this work with the larger fixed head Kitchenaid Mixers (6qt capacity) or just the smaller tilt-head mixers?
Jenn47 on Mar 15, 2016
I have the large kitchenaid mixer, I think a 7 qt cap and the lift works fine. it is not as rock solid as I expected it would be, and has a bit of wobble when the mixer is at med & higher speed, but it has a smooth lift and replace action and I am happy with it.
How much clearance is there for the door hinges?
Eric M on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is 3/4" clear from the shelf to the side of the cabinet (Euro) or to the face of the thickening board if face frame.
Based on the space required for mounting brackets, what's the cabinet inside width stated in terms of shelf width plus mounting bracket space? That is, I want to use this for a benchtop grinder that is 16" wide. I'll use a shelf that's 18" wide. I need to know inside width of the cabinet required. The info on shelf width implies that the shelf needs to be 1 1/4" less than INSIDE of mounting brackets, but specs don't describe width of mounting brackets.
Guenther B on Dec 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My cabinet door is the same width as my brackets 16 and 7/8 ". The brackets are two separate units, as long as you do not over load with to much weight you should be able to have a shelf that is as wide as your shelf material will handle. I don't see why you could not go as wide as 25" or more.

I have already been thinking of using these in my shop when I get around to remodeling.
Is it usable for kenwood cooking chef?
Elke H on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Since you build the movable shelf platform to fit the width of your cabinet and you can position the support brackets higher or lower on the cabinet sides to provide more or less vertical clearance, I believe you should certainly be able to fit this or any similar small appliance on the lift. I even had enough room in a standard height base cabinet to install a low drawer below the pull-out.
How tall does the cabinet need to be for the lifter to open and close
Paulette B on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The instructions were very misleading especially for placement of the unit. I had to re-do it a few times before I figured out not to follow instructions. In my cabinet a measurement from the cabinet bottom to the top of the lifter is 22.5 inches. The cabinet opening is 23 1/8 inches high. The top of the mixer is even with the top to the unit. Works very well now.
What is the product / item number of the pull out drawer that is shown in the same cabinet with the Mixer Lift Mechanism?
Tom W on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what you mean the Mixer lift is just what it says Makes a great storage place for a heavy mixer.
plus it makes using the Mixer more convenient. as it stays on the lift and is read when you are. just make sure you have the minimum your cabinet. the specs till you what that is. I have installed 3 of them and would recommend them.
I am looking for a shelf to mount under the mixer stand, as shown in the first picture of the mixer stand. Any ideas?
Mark F on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used 3/4" oak plywood and glued 1/4" x 3/4 wood strips to the exposed sides. This made a very nice finished product.
Hi, the appliance I want to use with your shelf has a total weight of 30kg would it be suitable ? many thanks John
John H on May 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: be sure it is anchored well, then there should be no problem.
Does the 60 lbs max.weight it will bear over and above the 14 lb of the mechanism, or is it really just approx only 45 lbs max weight suggested load?
Sockcranker on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would include the weight of the device and shelf that holds the mixer
What is the maximum height of Mixer that can be placed on the lift?
I have the 'Kitchen Aid Commercial KSMC895' mixer. It says the weight is anywhere from 25 lbs to 30/32 lbs and 17+ inches high.
I would love to add this lift to my cupboards if I can just lower it without hasle under the counter - (IKEA cupboards)
I think the mixer is just a bit too high to sit on my counter which is 16" below the trim.
My available space is 16 1/2" W, 24" D, 29"H (inside the cupboard space).
Sockcranker on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the 5qt Kitchen aid mixer which stands 14in. tall. I mounted my lift as the directions called for, near the top of the inside of the cabinet. This makes the mixer come very close to level with the countertop when swung into position. I have at least 6in. clearance underneath the unit when it is down. All you need to do is mount the lift unit lower inside the cabinet to get your clearance, easy peasy !! However, I would advise you to move the mixer on to the counter to use it. I don't think the lift provides a stable enough platform for operating the mixer, especially an large one like yours. Your only issue is that you will have an additional 3-4 in. to lift the mixer onto the counter.
Is the mixer bowl locking plate used to mount the mixer to the mixer lift shelf?
Jim B on Oct 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the professional 6 Kitchen Aid model There is no plate underneath but it has hollows for rubber grommets. There is no mounting plate for it. I have a rubber mat under it and it does not move. Our cabinet was made slightly small and we have to slide to the mixer into a better position after we use the lift. Unless your mixer is moving I would not mount it to the shelf
