    I've always been pushing myself away from purchasing a kitchenaid because of the cost. I finally purchased one and I'm so in love and glad I did it! Making a batch of cookies is so much faster and easier than my old stand mixer or hand mixer. One thing I don't like is that it is very loud and whiny. It sounds like something is wrong with it but it works just fine so I'm not worried! Another thing that I don't like is how it doesn't really mix everything. Constantly stopping and scraping sides of the bowl, bottom, and scraping off the attachment. Love the machine though. If you're leery on purchasing one I'd say go for it. You won't regret it.

    I got an incredible price from Best Buy on a 500 series KA mixer. and with the even better savings, I got from Bed Bath & Beyond on the juicer attachment, I ready to start draining my grapefruit tree now, BB, about Black Friday: what's the deal? to take advantage of the Samsung television savings I wanted, I needed an operator's assistance. well, it was still 10pm PST, but not a live soul to be found at the BB switchboard to help me finesse my transaction. do your west coast customers not warrant the same care and attention? or you made your money. and closed the shop for the night. sleeping on the job.

    I’ve always wanted a kitchen aid mixer, so when I heard the “profession” series was also on sale for Black Friday I decided to go big or go home, lol. Definitely glad to have it, but in all honestly the smaller one would have been just fine as well. Probably even a little better because I don’t have too much extra counter space, and this one is rather large and very bulky. I don’t think I have to worry about this thing ever breaking though, because it’s built like a little tank mixer! Lol. Definitely still glad I got it, love using it to whip up all kinda of new recipies!

    My sister in law had been wanting / begging for a Kitchenaid mixer for years. When I say this deal & Kitchenaid I texted her husband & shared the info with him. He jumped on this & said YES!! She cooks everyday and loves to cook. She actually cried when she saw this Kitchenaid! She pulled it out of the box and immediately began looking for things to cook. She is absolutely in LOVE with this amazing powerful mixer. She jumps up everyday and looks for new things to cook / mix. This is a powerful, easy to use mixer! I would highly recommend this and the price was GREAT! The RED color is beautiful

    I bought this on a special, for a very good price I must say. I shipped it to Grenada, after receiving it in Miami. Everything seems fine BUT... it was clearly repacked, and not well. It was clearly never used, so it must have been a display model. Since it takes a long time for me to finally get it after the purchase, it is not returnable. I feel this is a deceptive practice and after spending tons of money with BestBuy over the years I must say I am disappointed

    Great Mixer

    It's a great mixer for the price. I've used several times already, making some holiday cookies. It's king of large but I keep it in a deep counter corner and pull it forward when I am ready to use it. I can't comment on the sound, as others have, because I have had no other stand mixers to compare it to. I am excited about a few of the attachmemts that are available for purchase such as the slicer and ice cream maker. I am very please with the product!

    This Is a great mixer has plenty of power and seems like it would mix anything. There are two things I don’t like about this mixer. First is the size I have a small kitchen and it’s hard to store. But I would still buy it anyways. Also being a professional 500 kitchen aid it doesn’t show a lot of other mixing accessories for it on their website. I wanted a mixer head with a rubber scraper and KitchenAid doesn’t offer it I had to buy it from Amazon. Still not a problem I love the mixer.

    Its a great mixer for cookies, macarons, and similar. Haven't used it for bread dough or pasta. Only used the whisk and mixer attachment. Would like if it came standard with mixer scraper. You have to scrape the sides and bottoms when mixing certain batters. Does well with whip cream if you cook the bowl. You really have to clean the bowl a few times with a scotch pad. The factory oil film can end up in your mix. The lift bowl works fine and the motor does well with cookie batter. Use this at least once a month or more. So far owned it for 5 months and working the same

    Difficult to find a more capable mixer

    I purchased this on sale for a ridiculously low price, so it is definitely a 5 out of 5 on value for me. I was replacing a 20 year old kitchenaid tilt head mixer that still hasn't failed despite me using it for batches of pizza dough more than anything else. This mixer is more robust and a higher wattage than the one it replaced and powers through pizza dough like nobodies business. The only thing that might be a problem for some is its height, it won't fit under some people's kitchen cabinets where the tilt head probably would. All in all a great mixer for larger batches.

    I purchased this mixer as a Christmas gift for myself. I previously had been using a classic Kitchen Aid mixer for over 15 years and loved it. I unfortunately had to return this item because it ran so noisy that I couldn't stand mixing with it. I was very thankful that Best Buy had no problem returning the mixer. I then purchased a Kitchen Aid 6 quart mixer and have not had to endure the nose that this 5 quart mixer made. I am now happy with my new Profession 6 quart Kitchen Aid mixer.

    This stand mixer is outstanding! It is easy to use and clean. If you love baking and you're still hand mixing, this stand mixer will dramatically improve your baking adventures! I had the $1000 model many years ago and I would put this one on the same level. It has less hp than my first one which I was concerned about when I purchased this one, but I honestly can't tell a difference. The quality is not sacrificed to achieve the lower price. If you like to grind your own meat to make your own burgers or make your own pasta, you will love the attachments that go with it.

    I got this for my wife because our mixer broke. The quality of this product is instantly evident in the weight and feel of this mixer. She has used two of the three attachments so far and both have work flawlessly. My only complaint (more of a preference) is that it does not tilt back like the artisan for releasing the attachments. All in all a great product, and I can't wait to get the spiral/peeling attachments later.

    Wife was looking at a KitchenAid mixer and waiting for the price breakpoint she was comfortable with. I saw this and figured I would surprise her with it. It didn’t tilt but had more power than what she wanted. She has used it and the only issue was the mix turning grey from the bowl that we thought we had cleaned. The accessories seemed cheap but she was able to use other attachments that we already had. Will review again at the six month mark.

    I upgraded from a smaller model and I'm kinda wishing I'd stayed with the old model. This one doesn't always start even though I've turned it up to level 3. I have to shut if off and try again. I also think the drop down from the mixer to the bottom of the bowl isn't high enough because it's hard to get the blade out without making a mess. Another thing is that it's very difficult to lock the bowl in. I have to put all my might into it! It does have 10 speeds which is great and I do love the color, I definitely think I'll turn this one in at some point and get a different model though.

    I was replacing a "vintage" system of another famous Brand with this. Nothing wrong with the other one, just wanted a one-stop, sturdy mixer, and this delivers. It has large single beaters/mixers and the large bowl pops on the side pins, as the beater pops in to the center pin, the up and down bar lifts the bowl and beater up and down, and a slide allows the power adjustment. At the very fastest speed, if the food mixture viscosity is very thin, some may "fly" outside of the large bowl. I wanted to switch to something sturdy, fast, powerful and easy to use, and this delivers.

    Wonderful product. Been holding out on buying one til I found the best deal and here it was I a One day sale. It is loud but ooh well, you're using a mixer, what's really to be expected. Atleast I know that noise is backing the amount of power this thing has. I needed to adjust mine so the beater wouldn't clank. Open the books and it's the first thing kitchen aid tells you you may have to do, great clearance since. I stiffness of the bowl locks threw me at first. I felt like surely I was about to break something removing and attaching the bowl. Overall great product and I'm happy to have it in my kitchen

    Came across a pretty great deal that I couldn't pass up on. I'm really happy with the purchase. The size is really great for my hobby baking needs! I do have one complain and that is the fact even after cleaning, the bowl turned my bread dough a black color when I used it for the first time. I read that this is the result of a chemical reaction from the finishing materials of the bowl which by the way is non toxic. I took some recommendations to clean the bowl with some baking soda and brushing. Other than that little blip, having this mixer has been a dream. It puts in the effort instead of you :)

    I loved the handle and lightweight bowl. But, the beaters did not scrape the bottom properly, even after adjusting. Since the head did not lift, every time the bowl needed scraping, it took forever to unplug the mixer, remove the beater, lower the bowl, scrape, etc., then go through the reverse motions and start over several times. It toook twice as much time to mix my batter. Hopefully, a lift head would be a better option, but this particular mixer wasn’t the dream machine I’d been wishing for.

    I always wanted to buy the kitchen aid for my daughter. She is a pastry cook at a high end restaurant. Your black Friday price made it affordable. Thank you. This is the second one I purchased. The first one was last year, gift for one of her co-workers who left for Japan. Her fellow workers all chipped in for the going away gift. Great gift huh. In Japan, that kitchen aid is ridiculously expensive. I am glad I saw your ads. Last year this gift I got on line made me want to get my daughter one. I am glad I did. You know I liked it now that I bought one two years in a row.

    I bought this Kitchen Aid mixer for my future M-I-L, and she cried upon receiving it. She loves baking, and has been wanting a good mixer for years. I figured go big, or go home, and she is in LOVE! Kitchen Aid is a FANTASTIC brand, and I love that she'll have a great, trusty, go-to mixer that brings a beautiful, chic look to her kitchen as well. I plan on purchasing a Kitchen Aid mixer for myself after I move in a few months, and you can bet I will be buying another from Best Buy again!
