    It mixes things!

    This purchase was meant to down-size the footprint (and height) of our mixer. We had a Kitchenaid professional stand mixer and decided the smaller size would be better for our limited counter space - and the lower height would be better since it would fit under the cabinet easier). We were expecting to lose some power, but honestly we were surprised to see it could easily do every thing the professional model could. Additionally, this one has a larger selection of mixing bowls (such as glass bowls) that the professional model lacks. It does not have speeds as slow as the professional mixer, which could result in more splashing when you start mixing. But it hasn't been a problem. The mixer looks great and performs great. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs a stand mixer for their kitchen.

    Item Off the Wish List

    I have wanted one of these for a long time and it does not dissapoint! It came with the dough hook, wire wisk, and beater, so it is great not to have to buy any of those attachments. The bowl on my model is glass and makes it super easy to monitor what you are mixing, just in case you have to scrape the bowl down. I had to adjust the height of the beater a little bit when I first took it out of the box, but the booklet tells you exactly how to do it. There are also some good recipes included, and pointers for mixing certain things. I am very happy with my purchase.

    We have looked at these and different types/brands for a while. We picked up the middle of the road version and it has been great so far. The glass bowl is great, tilt head feature we like a lot. We are looking forward to adding attachments down the road (want to try the pasta items). Some folks seem to indicate the unit was noisy but we did not observer anything like this. We have made different batches with differ thicknesses and all mixed well and easily.

    I have tried other stand mixers, not wanting to spend "all that money" for something I didn't know how much I would use. But after burning the motor up in another brands mixer kneading bread dough and purchasing another one that wasn't big enough and made a lot of noise...I decided to buy this fabulous mixer and I haven't looked back! It is perfect! It kneads bread dough like a pro...mixes cookies and cake batters like NO other! I actually use it more than I thought I would. Money well spent! Great mixer....you won't be sorry...

    Workmanship was lacking

    Waited SOOO many years to buy this mixer. Took it out of the box and noticed right away how poorly the metal band around it was attached. It was dinged in at the front so that each time we use it, debris gets caught in it. One side of the band isn't secured at the back so I have to be careful not to catch it and pull the entire metal strip off. Mixer - GREAT! Quality of workmanship - Not Great! Even at a reduced price, it was a luxury purchase and one expects premium quality in that type of purchase, at least I do.

    Great Mixer

    I bought this mixer to replace my slightly smaller Kitchenaid mixer with the 4.5 quart bowl. This mixer came with the 5 quart glass bowl which I really like. The beater has a silicone blade around the side edge that scrapes the sides of the bowl with every pass eliminating the need to continually stop and scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula. It mixes all the way to the bottom of the bowl - much better than my old one. This is a great product.

    Before I bought this mixer, making cookies were a struggle. I've tried so many times to make sure they weren't burnt. As hard as I try, I just cant seem to make it as good as mums. I was about to give up making cookies forever. It wasn't until I saw this KitchenAid Mixer. This Mixer saved my life financially and my relationship with my husband. I highly recommend purchasing this product to everyone. This is a must have mixer.

    Perfect Mixer

    I love this mixer. I make a lot of yeast breads and the dough hook is a must. My last mixer had smaller dough hooks and the dough would wrap around the hooks and go into the mixer, which can ruin it. This doesn't happen with the KitchenAid because the disk at the top of the dough hook is large enough to catch the dough. This mixer looks very attractive as well, and it only takes half the time to mix or knead the food.

    I have wanted a stand mixer for years and finally this one went on sale and I purchased it for myself for Christmas :) I love this mixer and the Chrome color looks great on my counter top. I love the attachments that came with it. My only negative is the weight of the mixer and trying to lift it. Great product!

    Not as powerful as the Classic

    I was unaware that the spring was no longer on the new one and when I called and explained, they sent me a new mixer. When I received it and no spring was on it I called Kitchen Aide. I was stuck with a $15.00 pick up fee. Not pleased about that. I would not have needed to do that if your people were aware. It would have been a simple answer. I also noticed that is does not have as much power. Oh well....Teri

    This mixer works great but did not rate it with 5 stars because: 1. The mixing bowl does not fit into the stand very easily. It has to be jiggled a bit before it goes in and can be lock-turned into position. 2. The machine is heavy. There's no worry this will spin over while mixing because it weighs a lot. Honestly, it's a bit of a hassle to move it from storage to the countertop to use.

    When I saw the price, I thought this must be a lesser quality product than their traditional mixer. Wrong! This is comparable to the standard mixer that has been the benchmark of quality for decades. Powerful, relatively quiet, and easy to clean. The soft edge of the beater is a great touch. It scrapes the sides of the bowl as you mix, almost making a spatula redundant. Great buy!

    I purchased this mixer for my wife as a gift, knowing she's wanted one for a while. She was thrilled when it was delivered and immediately started running the mixer through some trials. She loves the attachments that came with it and especially likes the large capacity glass bowl. I made her very happy and I was able to taste some wonderful deserts!

    This is an incredible product. I don't bake often; however, the mixer is strong, durable, and decreases prep time. It's very easy to clean and looks great on my counter. I thought I would prefer a silver bowl, but I love the glass bowl. It's large enough to hold all the ingredients and also fun to watch.

    This was a great deal of the day! I had to get two of them (saving the other for a holiday gift). I currently use this mixer at least 4 times a month and it's a kitchen aid. Makes whipping, mixing and cooking a breeze when you need get ingredients together. It may seem a bit pricey, but when it becomes a deal of the deal - grab it!

    I got this mixer to replace my old Kitchenaid 4.5 qt. that was 15 years old. (still working, but getting noisy) . no issues, except they changed design where beater attaches, pre-2017 had a spring and washer... I called KA and they explained this was the new style. my wife has made cakes, frostings, breads, with no issues.

    Kitchen aid Mixer

    Bought KitchenAid - Tilt-Head Stand Mixer - Empire Red but did not try it yet. The mixer is so heavy and huge. The tools that come with it are made of cheap aluminium not stainless steel which is not good because you can see black residue when you touch or wipe those tools. This mixer is for people who do a lot of flour baking

    Seriously though it does help in the kitchen, kind of like a power tool, but it becomes important to read the directions to know when things should be mixed by hand. Also there is a balance point for smaller recipes when you should also just mix by hand. I had a great time baking a 2-layer white cake with my daughter.

    its big, its heavy, and it is not cheap. And that is what you want if you do any serious baking. My daughter has used my kitchen aid mixer to make cupcakes for a charity auction... 240 of them, every year for 5 years and it has worked without a hitch. Now that she has moved away, I bought her one of her very own.
