    I resisted getting this mixer for a long time because of price. Received a gift card and decided to bite the bullet on the remaining cost. Wow, this mixer is amazing! I use to make my dough by hand and now it’s within minutes. Powerful motor, easy to apply and remove attachments. I would recommend that kitchenaid replace whisk attachment with a stainless steel one, the current material (maybe aluminum) rubs off, I don’t like it. It doesn’t matter how much you hand wash it, it’s the metal. Otherwise I love this mixer and would recommend to others.

    I have wanted an KITCHEN AID stand mixer for years, and settled for an OSTER and another brand. Now with this sale price and the terrific reviews, I am thrilled and so is my family. The only small issue I had was that BEST BUY advertised other items that a tilt head mixer would use, along with my larger mixer. Consequently, I did order and then had to pay for return of the items. Pay attention the the difference of the Pro Series 5 vs. tilt head, for covers etc. I have made bread, pizza dough, and my first Angel food cake with whipped cream- A dream stand mixer! I LOVE my MIXER!

    Hi, We cook dinner at our house 4-5 nights a week. This product has greatly encouraged us to keep cooking as frequently. We have made pastries, desserts, breads, pancakes, doughs , and much more. It has saved us a lot of time. We can now set things to mix as we multi task on other tasks. We always try to prepare meals every time in less than 30 minutes. This item allows you to prepare delicious things without too much hassle. I can't wait to get the ice cream accessory for this product.

    I’ve only use this makes her a couple of times but it has done a pretty good job. The mixing bowl is large the only downside I see is it is pretty loud when it’s on. Also you definitely have to buy some extra attachments if you’re going to make things like cakes cupcakes or putting’s because the attachments that come with it do not scape the whole bowl or hit the bottom, so runny batters dont always mix well. They do sell a mix attachment that has a scaper but it is separate.

    Handles the Mixing

    I like this product because it's heavier in weight to withstand larger mixing. The lack of lid will make a mess if you turn up the speed to the maximum instead of increasing the speed slowly as it mixes. What I do is turn it on at a slow speed, let it mix while I continue to cook and prep, then I come back and increase the speeds. This allows me to continue to cook and not have to baby sit the mixer while it does it's job. It also, comes with multiple attachments. It is on the taller side, so if your cabinets are low, it won't fit underneath tucked in.

    If you haven't ever heard of KitchenAid and their mixers, listen up. They are the most distinguished home appliance for anyone who enjoys spending time in the kitchen. They have several models to pick from but, this Pro 500 Series is fantastic! It has a larger motor than the basic series, for when you want to use optional attachments. So there's no question to whether it can handle anything you throw at it. I also love that the bowl raises and lowers vs having to tilt the neck back. Less messy, and less chance of tip-over. All and all, I love this mixer!

    You can't go wrong with KitchenAid Pro mixers. They are built to last and are powerful enough to plow through the thickest dough and fast enough to whip up the thinnest of liquids. I have had one for many years and will probably never have to buy another. This was a gift to my daughter and I expect it will meet her needs for many years as well. This makes future gift ideas easier too as there are some really nice KitchenAid accessories that anyone would love to use with this machine!

    KA Model: KV25G0XER Box says 525 watts

    Posted
    Chandra

    I ordered this product online and almost cancelled this order today while picking up because I had read reviews that the 450 watts motor and warranty "none" as specified on best buy site may not be adequate for heavy duty dough mixing. BUT the box was right in front of me on the shelf and out of curiosity I asked to look at the box and to my surprise it said 525 watts. I have brought the mixer home now .. to study more on this product. and try it out too ..will put more updates later .... Gave 4 stars only because of misguided specifications. Would love to hear on this from other users

    Always wanted this mixer but it was priced too high for me until PreBlack Friday Sale when I bought it without delay. Wasn't disappointed but I did find I needed a scraper beater instead of the regular beater that came with it that required constant scraping of the bowl sides. Watched YouTube videos to learn how to best operate it, especially taking the bowl off and on...no, I'm not very good in the kitchen. But this mixer makes me look like I am and I enjoy using it. It's heavy so make sure you can lift if you aren't going to keep it on top of the counter.

    Prior to buying this KitchenAid I was using a hand mixer. I hated it. It was always difficult to get a consistent mix while trying to keep everything inside the bowel. This machine makes it so much easier now. You just turn it on and let it do all the work. You can even walk away from it. This version is very large and heavy so I don't recommend it if you have limited counter space or will need to carry it across your kitchen to get to an outlet.

    Finally broke down and went looking for a stand mixer. I found this model for $199.99 on sale here at Best Buy.com and could not pass up having a KitchenAid Mixer for that price! Received the mixer less than a week later, opened the box and was surprised at how big this mixer is! Best purchase ever! After thoroughly cleaning all the pieces, we set up the mixer and started making dough! WOW! What a machine! The wife and I are cooking up a storm all the time now, and by far,, the very best mashed potatoes one could ask for! Great purchase! Thanks you KitchAid and thanks BestBuy!

    Found the deal of the century and purchased this mixer... It not only met but well exceeded my expectations. Was bigger than I thought, but that is a good think... I have already used it more often than planned, but that is a good thing. I know I will get Many Many years of use out of this product. Kitchenaid and all of this attachments will offer many years of service, work, and enjoyment... I cook for the fun of it, not to cook professionally...

    I had my first Kitchenaid mixer for about 25 yrs. Let my daughter “borrow” it temporarily while we traveled in an RV full time, as it was a little too big for my limited kitchen space. For some reason I had a hard time getting it back from her!! She grew up using it and got used to having it for herself, so I treated myself to this new one! Once you’ve had a Kitchenaid stand mixer, you don’t EVER want anything else!!

    Gifted this to my girlfriend. She loved that this is a professional model. Her only complaint is that it is heavy so moving it around is relegated to me in the kitchen. I don't mind it. She hasn't experienced any issues with discoloration while making dough. This model has a slow start up feature which her mother's model does not have. She hates having to use her mom's now since she forgets and kicks flour out on accident. Not an issue with this model.

    This standing mixer has helped my wife out so much in the kitchen. She's done several recipes that include pizza dough, flour tortillas, beat and fluff eggs, among others. It's a time saver!. My wife can continue with the easier tasks while the mixer performs tougher duties. It comes with only 3 accessories, but these are enough to take care of most tasks. We were able to get it at a phenomenal price of $199 during black friday, but unfortunately we haven't seen it drop in price since then. You might doubt buying it at a full price of $499.

    Having a KitchenAid mixer is a must for anyone who bakes at least a few times a month. Save your arms and don't skimp on mixers that'll give out on you within a few months. KitchenAid's are the workhorses of bakers' kitchens. Get one and never pay for another mixer again- ever!!! PS You can also get all the attachments to grind meat, make sausages, ice cream, etc. it's the best bang for your buck.

    First of all, I hate cooking. I hate baking even more. But our daughter really wanted one of these, so when we found it on sale on Black Friday, we grabbed it. Fast forward a week or so, and I got roped into a cookie exchange. At first i panicked. Then i decided to give this bad boy a try. Easy Peasy! Peanut butter cookies didn't phase this mixer. Nor did the other cookie recipes i tried. Now my husband is so happy, because finally i don't mind making him cookies. I plan on tackling meatloaf and homemade bread next. Great purchase!

    Flimsier than our last kitchen Aid

    We bought this same model about a year ago. We were very happy with the purchase and bought it again during this black friday. The quality seemed a lot cheaper and flimsier than what we bought earlier. The weight and sturdiness of the mixing bowl was very much reduced. When we are mixing dough, the machine seemed to sway left and right, something that our previous mixer never does even after a year's use. We bought it for a lot cheaper in black friday. For this price the product is okay, but not sure if its worth it for regular price.

    I have owned a cobalt blue Kitchenaid mixer for thirty years and it worked beautifully. I was disappointed the day before Thanksgiving when the motor finally burned up. So the new mixer is a larger model with a lift lever instead of a tilt head. I used it for making Christmas cookie dough and I am very pleased. The only disappointment is in the quality of the attachments. They are much more cheaply made than the pieces that came with my first mixer. I have a feeling they won't last as long, either. But for now, great performance!

    I'd had my eye on this product for quite some time and now having purchased and used it three different times in the last month and a half, I'm disappointed in myself for waiting so long. I used this for strictly baking preparation, specifically mixing ingredients. It was SO nice to be able to put the ingredients in, turn it on and then step away to start cleanup while the mixer did all of the heavy lifting for me. This is a very sturdy and versatile product and I'm looking forward to expanding the usage capabilities with the additional attachments that are available.
