    Yes, great product, but...

    Anonymous

    I am from Italy, and I am working for a while in the US, so, I always wanted one of these mixers (Euro/Dollar change rate helped me a lot :) ) then it's the first thing I wanted in my kitchen. Best Buy had one of the best prices around, so... Let me say that when you open the box, the item is very very pleasant to see...well refined, all the things have glossy painting, very nice. But it has to work, as well, so I tried to do the thing I miss more here in the US: the bread (sorry guys, but we are used to another kind of bread, no offense :) ) I decided to try with a small amount, just to test the machine...well let me say that it's not the way this item is designed to work: the mix sticked to the hook, and it almost stop mixing, it just turn with the hook, so I had to stop the machine, tear it away, start again. A couple of times the mix divided in two parts, one staying in the bottom of the bowl, and, again, had to stop and put the mix togheter. Not that good, in my opinion. But keep in mind that this happened to me just for small quantities. When I tried to use it for some more bread, almost the full capacity (something like 4 cups of flour) the thing works great, the mix is perfect. A thing I didn't like is the speed: two seems to be too fast for bread making, one is somewhat too slow, you have to adjust it, because with two the mix tends to come up on the hook. But this may be just a question of adjusting my habits of using the machine. Anyway, I did mayonnase, whipped cream, beated whites, mix for pancakes and crepes, and bread and donughts and so on...just keep in mind that I had problems managing small quantities. Another thing I cannot understand is: if they sell a tool to make ice cream, why don't they sell a slow cooker? It would be nice to make soups, vegetables cream, rice, and a lot of other nice things, that is a great hole, it should be the first thing, with such a bowl. In Italy I have the worverk cooking machine which work this way and it is wonderful, it helps me a lot (and saves me a lot of times). In conclusion, if you bake, basically, and you make mixes (well, is a mixer, you are right) in the right amount, well, it's the right item: it does what is intended for, and nothing else. If you are alone, and you don't use it so often, or if you want something more versatile, well, you should try something else.

    Purchased one of these for my wife and had some bad luck. First unit was making a grinding noise and stopped turning about 10 minutes into first use. Exchanged for new one and before using, plugged in and was making an even louder grinding noise. Took the second unit back the same day and asked customer service rep to try in store and a few people came to see what all of the noise was. Could hear the unit in the entire store. Asked for new unit, but wanted to see and hear it run before taking it home. Third unit was good and has been good since. Would give 5 stars if not for the bad two units.

    I love and use our kitchenaid many times per week and it is very robust. While the bowl can be difficult to get out sometimes it's not that bad. My only big gripe is the retaining pin that holds the top to the base works itself out all the time! Great machine that allows you to expand your cooking though. Spend the extra cash and go with the pro model.

    Always wanted to get one. Still getting used to how it works, particularly when putting in ingredients through the plastic cover. The added value of this to my old mixer is the kneading tool. It does blend and mix ingredients well. With the cost and heavy weight of the gadget, it is more of a nice to have than a necessity. But it should last longer.

    We returned this due to the fact you had to put the attachment on after yo get the bowl almost in place. and have to remove attachment to pull the bowl off. We bought the Artisan series instead and are very happy

    I wanted to buy this stand mixer for a while, got it as a Christmas gift for myself. I just wish it had some kind of storage for its cord, or the cord was retractable and would have a cover to keep it clean and dust free.

    I am a first time user of the standing mixer. Pro: Hands free makes it easy to add ingredients without having to find a place to set down the tool vs. hand mixer. Con (ish): Cleaning is a little bit harder but worth the effort.

    I recommend you dont do store pickup. It takes forever to arrive. I returned it twice because parts were missing or parts were loose. I finally got nother one and it is perfect. This one though i got at the store.

    KitchenAid is a great product but i feel this mixer had a hiccup, the speed lever is so hard to move from speed to speed or gets stuck, hopefully it changes as i use it more often.
