Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
The reason they advicse you not to use and adapter is because over time the adapter contacts get weak and start heating up when the mixer is working hard / has a heavy load. You bought it in Canada and I am prettey sure the local electrical codes (as does the UK) prevent the use of kitchen appliance adapters. If you really want to be safe and not concerend you can by a male pin wall plug and install it in place of your current electrical plug on the wall power plug end.
Here is some information you should know:
All you really need is a new male wall plug capable of 15A and have a qualified person install the new plug in place of your current plug. Most any hardware / home supply store should have this male wall plug.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

No you will be fine, you are not using an "adapter" as such, you mean a Plug Converter, I presume one that alters the 3 Pin arrangement of the plug, so that it can mate with your local 3 Pin outlets.
So all OK, look, as long as it is 220 - 250 V AC then you are all good as that's the Australian standard too. Just make sure you have a good connection with the converter plug.
I wonder if the adapter "They" mean, is a 3 way multi-strip adapter?
If in ANY remaining doubt, then get an electrician to rewire the Plug to Australian standards, will cost very little, i would do it, for a customer, for free...and then you are 100% sure.
The wiring in Canada, and Australia are the same except for Pin out in socket and plug. have a look below all about world plugs.

Hi KCORNESS. Those retaining rings can be real pains in the
'you know what'! What you need to aid in their removal (and reinstallation) are
a pair of external retaining ring (or sometimes called snap ring) pliers. Google "Retaining Ring Pliers" and you'll find
hundreds of hits. If you are near a Home
Depot, you can buy a relatively inexpensive pair to do the job. You may want to have both straight and 90 degree inserts Here's one example below:
Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA, USA
