    I own this mixer in the metallic pearl. It's beautiful. I admit I'm drawn to all the colors. Makes me want another just because it's pretty. That's the only reason I'll ever get another. I have a tilt Artisan in candy apple red and love it too. We gave our daughter my first one which is now nearly 40 years old. I got this in the almond on almond for our son and it goes with everything. But this one will mix 4 VERY large loaves without a pause, We go through it quickly. We have hatched stainless on the walls and this is a beautiful machine to sit in front of it. Pretty as it is, it's here because it does its job.

    I had an Artisan for about 10 years. I used it often to make bread. But it wasn't heavy duty enough for the bread I was making so I needed something bigger. I purchased this one and it does the trick. The only reason for the 4 stars is it isn't easy to get the mixing attachments on or off when the bowl is filled with anything. It is also a little difficult to get the bowl on or off. I always feel like I am going to break something. On the other hand, I do like not having to tilt the head of it because I have undercounter lighting and I broke a couple of them while lifting the head on my old one.

    Makes clean up easy

    I read reviews for weeks before I pulled the trigger on the 600 series. The only reason I give it a 4 and not 5 because I'm short. When adding ingredients I have to stand on my tippy toes so I can watch the ingredients go in as I pour. This machine is durable, easy to clean the attachments and bowl. When I didn't have mixer I felt like there was so much clean up. Now I just put everything in the bowl add soap and water --boom done! The bowl size, and lever to lift the bowl up and down is why I chose the 600. My grandmother still has hers, looking forward to having this for years.

    I purchased this blender for my wife as a Christmas present. She had been wanting one for a while, and she is very pleased with the blender. It has expanded the recipes she has been waiting to try and has made some of her existing ones much easier to make. Now to purchase some of the many attachments that are available for the blender. This unit does not have the tilting head, which we weren't sure if we would want or not. After use, my wife is happy that this has the fixed head as it allows her to use it on the cabinet without having to move it forward when in use.

    I have used this mixer on several projects. I have made muffins and bread mostly. This unit is pretty strong. It moans a little on the french bread dough. The attachments were nice at first but the blade and dough mixer are starting to pit. Not very good for having this only a couple months. Would i buy this product again.....yes. I wish the attachments were better material.

    Bought this for my wife for Christmas, she opened it early since she loves to bake cookies every year and this year made it so much easier since her fibromyalgia flare ups were the worst. This looks awesome on the counter in the Peral Metallic! Very nice dark gray. She made so many cookies and banana bread with ease. I feel bad I didn’t get this sooner, saves so much time and headache. Can’t wait to use it for other things, I got the sliver attachment to go with! Attachments are easy to change out.

    Wanted bigger bowl capacity and more power, so upgraded my old Kitchen Aid. Not sure I will keep this item. Do not like that has no tilt head. Do not like how beaters have to be removed before you can take the bowl out of the stand. Am still working on getting the motion to put the bowl in place in the 3 lock areas. Will use it several times in the next week and decide if I want to keep it.

    I bought the Kitchenaid Classic Plus after coupons, I paid $216 (tax included) But after I read all the reviews in regards to kneading dough that these little ones doesn't cut it. So yesterday I returned it to the place I bought it from. Thankfully yesterday, I picked up this Kitchenaid Professional 600 series in the empire red color at another retail store after coupons, rewards($50) rebates($50)= it ended be $211.82 (tax included) I'm so happy :)

    I have been wanting one these for along time. I wish I had picked one up sooner since, I had burned up a number of lesser powered machines making beard dough. This one has all the power a homecook would need. The purchase at bestbuy went great, the sales people very helpful and patient with all my questions. They helped me with the cedit application and I was able to get this with 0% financing. It has been 3 months and I am really enjoying this mixer and glad I bought it at bestbuy.

    Motor is not loud as others state - it shows off its power by plowing through whatever you put in front of the paddle and makes light of butter that may not be a softened as the recipe requires. Bowl snaps tightly into place, paddle works in a fabulous pattern to incorporate the mix of ingredients perfectly. If the bowl is having spots that aren't being touched, realign as directions state. I haven't had a single problem large or small batter size - buy this model, you will not regret it!

    I really like the item it helps me a lot for whatever recipe i want, specially making bread dough I can double the recipe because it’s huge enough. Actually I already had one before therefore I got 2 now because I’m doing some bread dough for I had a lot of customers ordering some of my different kinds of bread.

    We have owned a couple of mixers before and so far I can say, this is the best mixer. It does produce a bit noise when operation but not too noisy. The performance is consistent. We are using the standard mixing, meat mincer and vegetable shredder and planning to get ice cream maker. Very happy with the purchase and recommend the product.

    Looks professional, feels professional, acts professional. Quiet operation, expandable with add-on accessories. This was my favorite gift on Mother's Day. My family knew that when I had a solid mixer like this, I would USE it a lot, and they were right! I love the pasta maker add-on. We have freshly-made lasagna on a regular basis now. The splash guard is wonderful. I hope anyone who lives to cook and bake can own one of these.

    Hi, I got my Kitchen Aid 600 Pro series in black. Best Buy sales rep was awesome and he quickly processed the sale and told me I would receive mine within 3 days. I had been wanting to buy this for 2 years but kept postponing. Finally, I decided to buy and its worth the investment. I already tried a bread dough. It does efficiently and effortlessly. I can't be happier. Everything about it is cool. Those who love to cook, should definitely buy this one.

    Great price at BB after I spent 2 days searching for best deal. Salesperson was experienced w/this product and very informative, though no pressure. I went back to buy it. Saved my shoulders, elbows & arms with mixing cookie batters, my main reason for purchase. Size was right because of the 5+ cups of flour plus sugar and other cookie batter ingredients (can't always split batters for smaller capacity mixing bowls.) Happy w/purchase and BB price!

    Sounded like a garbage disposal on 1st use

    I bought this for my wife who has been a kitchenaid fan for decades and when she started the first use to make some bread it sounded like the machine was going to blow up. It sounded more like a bad garbage disposal full of marbles then a quality machine. We started looking at reviews and found that this new version of the machine does not hold up and we returned it to look for a different product.

    Always wanted a Kitchenaid mixer made this purchase after finding the color I was looking for over the last several years. This milkshake has a hint of gray purpleish reminds me of a true milkshake. Meat grinder works like a champ. The stronger motor is better for grinding meat and other tough items. Also found a $60.00 rebate on this model. Bestbuy is an authorized seller of Kitchenaid products.

    This is my 2nd, Kitchenaid stand mixer my first was the 550, I loved it but you were limited so I treated myself to the Pro650- best kitchen purchase I’ve made in a long time, double cookie batches with ease! Whips up 48 cupcakes in a blink and 8 loaves of banana bread at once! There is a slight hesitation when you first power it on but it’s made that way so the ingredients don’t blow all over! Love it!!!!

    I have waited years for this machine!! Years! Makes my baking go by so much faster than hand mixing. Only downside is you shouldn't wash the attachments in the dishwasher. It will strip the metal coating off and won't be a smooth to use. My sister accidentally put mine in the dishwasher not aware of this. But the replacement is only $10, thankfully not a lot like other machines.

    I have waited many years, envying my sister's KitchenAid stand mixer. Finally, my wonderful groom of 5 months, gave me the mixer of my dreams. I must say it is everything I had hoped for. Egg whites are whipped nice and fluffy in a flash. Whipped cream is ready before you can get the berries in the bowl! I have mixed breads, cakes, meatloaf and everything else I can come up with an excuse to make. I love it.
