    A wise investment

    Posted

    We just ordered the Ultra Power model in empire red. However I have a cobalt blue Kitchenaid Ultra Power Stand Mixer that I have had for over 20 years . Let me tell you, this is by far, my favorite small appliance and I will use nothing but this exceptional piece of equipment to make my cheesecakes. I have never had any problems with it whatsoever and even after 20+ years, it still runs like it is brand new. I love, love, love this thing. In fact, I love it so much, that I told my husband that when it "dies", I want to bury it in the backyard. Lol. Now it is still in perfect working condition, but the only reason we bought a new one is because we were wanting an "upgrade" to match our color scheme of our kitchen, which is red. Not too mention the fact that the price was way to good to pass up. I highly recommend two things for the mixer. One is the paddle attachment that has the scraper blade on it. The other is the pasta maker attachment. It's a bit pricey, but it's so worth it to be able to make your own pasta. Now, with all that being said, you really owe it to yourself to purchase this stand mixer. It may be pricier than some, but it is worth every penny. Trust me. This is an investment that will last you a lifetime. I speak from experience. :)

    Totally Worth It!

    I watch a lot cooking shows and bake, especially around the holidays. Now I understand why so many chefs and cooks have this "helper" in the their kitchens. It is heavy, first of all, it is not as loud as I thought it would be. But what I love most about this "miracle from the kitchen gods" are the attachments. I can go from mixing or stirring to grinding deer meat for sausages. It's a "second pairs of hands" both my husband and I can use. Also, he loves to show off the grinder SKU 3888207 and stuffer SKU 9749154 to his hunting buddies. I have not made homemade pasta before but owning the "best thing since sliced bread" I am very much tempted to purchase the pasta maker. The value and everything that does and can do, depending on whether or not you purchase the attachments is totally worth it.

    I bought this with intentions of baking cookies, and have been making anything possible. Because of the high power, mixing anything is fast and easy. The only drawback is that the bowl does not have the handle and there is no pouring shield. But I've managed so far with out them. As with any Kitchenaid stand mixer, make sure you have the counter space for it since it is too heavy to be moving around a lot. tip: if you plan on purchasing any accessories make sure you search for your model specifically since there are 2 sizes. Too many people gave poor reviews for attachments because they got the wrong size.

    Had to try Kenmore first, but no comparison.

    Because Kenmore sells a competitive mixer, red, nice design, way less expensive, I bought it to try to save money. Got it home. Looks nice, nice features, but turn it on and...... tremendous loud motor at any speed. I could not stand it at all! I thought of all the hours over the years in the kitchen, listening to THAT! No! No way! Took it back right away and turned to the internet to find the sale at BestBuy.! $239. for red! Could have paid $199.00 for white,but, well, I want red! I ordered online, picked-up within 2 hours. The KitchenAid brand is not just hype! This is nice, quiet at every speed, beautiful operation, nicely crafted, three essential mixing tools. Wish there was a handle on the bowl like Kenmore had, but oh well!

    LISTEN TO ME..DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOUR WIFE KNOWS HOW TO BAKE AND COOK . IF YOU DO SO FORGET ABOUT LOOSING THAT EXCESS POUNDS AND LOOKING GOOD AND PLAN OF BUYING SOME EXTRA EXTRA LARGE CLOTHS FROM "BIG AND TALL".AS SHE WILL GO CRAZY AND WILL START TO COOK AND BAKE LIKE MAD. AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RESIST EATING ALL THE DECADENT CAKES AND COOKIES. A VERY GOOD "WEIGHT GAIN - AID"....MY WIFE JUST LOVES IT. AND SHE HAS BEEN BAKING NON-STAOP EVERY DAY FOR EVERYONE....GUYS WATCH-OUT FOR YOUR WAIST-LINE .

    So far, I have enjoyed using the mixer. I have wanted one for quite some time. It mixes nicely and does so much more quickly than my old stand mixer. (It was not a Kitchenaid brand) I have been married for 42 years and this is only the third mixer I have ever had. I plan on it lasting for a very long time. The only thing I would change if I could is where the speed controls are located. It is hard for me to reach and use the controls as they are on the opposite side of where I am. I am used to the controls being on the end of the mixer where they are easily seen and used. I did buy the pour shield also. Helps to keep flour dust under control!!

    Beaters not dishwasher safe

    The mixer works great, but the beaters that came with it had a burnished metal coating that makes them not dishwasher safe. KitchenAid and other companies make dishwasher safe replacements for some of the beaters. I learned this the hard way. The dishwasher removed the coating and there was this oily black stuff that would not come off which rendered the beaters useless. KitchenAid support told me there was nothing I could do except replace them. The manual does clearly say the beaters are not dishwasher safe. It's my fault for not carefully reading the manual. It never occurred to me that something that can get as gooey and sticky as beaters would not be dishwasher safe.

    I bought this to replace the hand held mixer that I've had for years (also a KitchenAid). I started making cakes for family and friends and the buttercream icing that I make was just too much for the hand-held, so I purchased this mixer. It has been great with heavy batters and icings. I enjoy being able to turn it on and continue working on something else while it is mixing! It is a bit heavy so I leave it out on the counter. Very happy with my purchase!

    Most definitely the best kitchen appliance I've ever bought for my baking wife. She absolutely loves it and the benefits of her baking more benefit me ! It's worked since day one and without a hitch. My only suggestion is to make sure you DO NOT place attachments in the dishwasher. They are glazed with an alloy that doesn't do well in the dishwasher. It clearly states this in the directions but if your excited to hurry and use your mixer, you may skip over the instructions a little bit.

    I have been wanting a KitchenAid for a LONG time. They have always been out of my price range, until the day I got the Deal of the Day e-mail! I opened it as usual, thinking there wouldn't be anything I really wanted or needed, but there it was, the blue KitchenAid. It was marked down from $400 to $189!! I immediately bought it! It is amazing! Definitely recommend it, it is the best addition to my kitchen!

    I bought it mainly for my wife and she loves it. Every week she uses it to bake with the kids. Now that the holidays are approaching, she used it to make sugar cookies and peanut butter cookies on the same day to test her recipes. It came with all the attachments needed, and we didn't need to buy anything extra. The beater and whisk are the ones constantly used, and they still look brand new.

    This is the motherload of mixers. It is amazing and that pretty much says it all. I would like to comment on the shipping experience. I placed the order with free ground shipping and had an estimated delivery of about a week and a half. It arrived less than 48 hours. Once again, Best Buy service outdoing yourself. All I can add is to say thank you. Best Buy really is the BEST!

    I am not a baker but I wanted to try making custom made cookies for a baptism and this mixer was excellent! Only issue was I wished I would've opted for the bigger bowl, a little tight squeeze when trying to stir but other than that it's very easy to handle (of course it's heavy) but very durable. I would of course recommend to anyone and I got it on sale so it was a win win for me :)

    I am very pleased with this purchase. This mixer is a wonderful product. it has a powerful motor and does the job and cleans up easily. Well worth the money spent for it. I have not found anything negative to say about this Kitchen-Aide Ultra Power Mixer. So glad that I bought it for use in my home. This product is far superior to some other brands that I have bought and used in the past.

    This is a nice mixer that is easy to use and clean. I also like the fact that we can buy accessories to work with the mixer if we choose. The only concern is the weight of the mixer which still seems to be less then the kitchenAid mixer we had before. Overall I'm satisfied with the purchase and my wife wasn't even mad that I gave her something for the Kitchen as a Birthday gift. ;-)

    I bought this for my wife as a great Christmas surprise, ( Food scientists ). She loves it, makes baking and mixing so much easier. It's all metal and heavy! This mixer will be used by our grandkids when we have any lol. The price is so worth the results. Easy to use, adjust and it will outlast everything used in your kitchen even the oven and fridge!

    This mixer works great. I've used it for cookies, cakes, frosting, etc. and have absolutely no complaints. There's plenty of power for what I need! The only disappointment is I wish there would be an additional smaller bowl for frosting. The large bowl works but think a smaller bowl would be better. (I had that with my old mixer.) Suppose I will get used to the larger bowl.

    I wish we had bought a Kitchenaid mixer years ago. It makes cooking and baking so easy! It's strong enough to mix the stiffest cookie and bread dough easily and whips cream in an instant! I'm in love! Storage is a bit of an issue because it's big and heavy. We solved that problem by buying a red mixer and just leave it out on the counter.
