Is it ok to put a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer in my checked luggage on a flight from JFK to Heathrow?

The mixer is one of these.
I have a luggage weigher thing, so I will make sure I don't go over the 50lbs, but I'm worried that either security will think it's a bomb and destroy it, or customs will think it's new and try to tax me for it. How plausible are either of these scenarios? Also, will it survive the trip? I'd try to fit it in my hard suitcase, but I think it might not squeeze in there, so I may end up having to wrap it in towels and put it in my larger soft suitcase. Oh, and also, would bringing one of these
be likely to set off warning alarms as well?
