    I bought this mixer on sale plus my birthday discount for 199.99 plus tax The good: This is my first mixer and I am loving it. So far I have made: chocolate chip cookies, bread, cheesecake, and Chinese steamed buns. The mixer attachments evenly distribute and mixes. Any food residues on the sides can be easily swept back down with a silicone spatula. I've heard people complain how the lift design hinders adding ingredients and removing the bowl. In my experience, when I turn off the mixer and lower the bowl, there is plenty space to add ingredients. If the attachment is in my way, I just pulse the mixer to move the arm out of my way. When you remove the bowl, you often will need to remove the attachment first. This is a very minor inconvenience since I am usually done with the mixer when I remove the bowl. If I need to use the attachment later, I just leave it on a plate until I am ready to reattach. I read another review complain the attachments were scratching the bowl causing metal particulates in the food. Those that have this problem should know there is a screw on the mixer that allows you to adjust the proximity of the attachments to the bowl. My mixer was perfectly adjusted from the factory. My attachments move very close to sides of the bowl without touching or scratching. Ive had this mixer for six weeks and I have used it at least once a week. Since the pandemic I wanted to try something new and I chose baking and this mixer is the perfect accessory. In addition I have developed lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) so this mixer takes all of the pain away from mixing. The bad: This mixer is pretty big and heavy. I would look up the dimensions of the mixer to make sure it can fit your accommodations and I recommend you choose a permanent place for it so you dont have to move the mixer often. Recommendations: I would recommend this for anyone who plans on making lots of dough. I have read that the professional series has stronger gears that facilitate dense foods. This is my first mixer so unfortunately, I don't have anything else to compare with. I would purchase a cover for this mixer. This mixer is pretty pig so a cover would protect things from falling or collecting in the bowl. Additionally, if your mixer is near a stove a cover would protect it from food or grease splatter from the stove. I found a good one from amazon and there are plenty designs to choose from

    This is an upgrade to my previous KitchenAid Mixer, and if I didn't read some of the other reviews, and then the manual I'd be pretty upset. I am the type of person who uses this machine, at least 3-4 times per week. It's been one year and good for me so far. I mentioned it being an upgrade, and after having my previous mixer for almost 2 decades (still going,btw) I figured I would just jump right in and use it. I think that's a common mistake. After getting comfortable on a similar device you forget some of the basics of operation. When people say it makes a loud noise, I would fully agree. It is loud, but it's a big electric motor turning some dough that would make me sweat to hand knead, so I get it. But, letting this bad boy warm up while I'm starting my dough has been the most crucial thing I've done. Allowing the gears to get lubricated, and the motor awake has made it a much smoother operator. If you like jazz or that smooth form of it anyway. I'm looking forward to buying another for my collection. I'd recommend it for sure. Just start by reading the manual, watch some YouTube videos on operation, and don't throw quick hardening cement in it, and you'll be fine.

    I bake bread at home and I have been thinking about buying this thing for a while and got it this year while it was on sale. I like it and I also love using meat grounding attachment so I can ground meat that is better quality. I need to get a couple more attachments to make cooking easier.

    I have been wanting one of these mixers for years, but could never justified the cost vs the amount of times I’ll probably use it, or even the space in my tiny kitchen. I couldn’t refuse an amazing deal and my baking hasn’t been the same since. I use it a couple of times a week and it just makes everything so much easier, I wasn’t sure if i want the tilt head or bowl lift, but I don’t really think it matters in Terms of ease of use. I like the look of the bowl lift better, and the rest I figure out.

    I've recently started baking because one can only handle eating, sleeping, and breathing information technology for so long. One of the things I like making are cheesecakes. I have an older Betty Crocker branded hand mixer but it was getting cumbersome mixing this type of batter, especially when you went beyond a couple of 8oz packages of cream cheese. I looked at other brands, but like anything today, many of them had 8%, 9%+ negative (i.e. - 1-star) reviews. While the KitchenAids do have some negative reviews, they were farther and fewer in-between. So I bought this one about a month ago. I finally got to use it this past Thursday night for a "Cheesecake Bake Off" we were having at a departmental meeting. It performed as I hoped it would, even with up to two pounds of cream cheese and the subsequent batter. Yes, there are times you'll have to stop and knock the batter off of the paddle, but sometimes you can lower the bowl, turn the speed up a bit, and it'll knock it off for you. Overall, I'm happy with it and can't wait for more adventures with the KitchenAid. And yes, they are somewhat loud, but thing about what it's doing - this thing is powerful. I'll take it.

    This is my first Kitchenaid Mixer and I love it! I got the Apple red color for my birthday and it is as advertised. Included in the package with the mixer, I received the 5 Quart stainless steel bowl which comfortably holds 1 1/2 pounds softened butter & sugar at any given time without spillage. Also, you get an egg beater, the flat beater which was missing. However, I contacted customer service online and they resolved it. They gave me 2 options either send back the whole package or they refund the money for the flat beater. So, of course I choose the refund and ordered it separately. I received it in the mail so I’m extremely happy about the outcome. Overall, it’s beautifully crafted workmanship culinary designed addition to any kitchen. Save tons of time by not mixing the cake batter manually. In addition, you can always purchase the Flex Edge Beater which is attached to the mixer to mix the cake batter and reduces scraping the sides of the mixing bowl. You also get a Dough hook accessory to make dough for baking bread or pizza. There is a lever to the top-right hand side of the mixer that adjusts the bowl to lift up or down to the base before starting your mixer. The on/off feature is on the top-left of the mixer with different speeds. I only use speed #2. Note: Make sure you are aware of the type of mixer you have, to ensure that you order the accessories for your specific Kitchenaid mixer.

    Love this mixer. I've had it for about 2 years now. It is very heavy. I keep it on my counter all the time. It was difficult to move back and forth until I bought this pad that sits underneath it. Now I can slide it around on the counter very easily.

    My wife is very happy with her mixer! She joked she always needed one for her countertop like a piece of art. It’s definitely more then art! Made her holiday baking easier then its ever been. We read other reviews and some had me concerned, especially with the price! Following the advice of some of the more detailed reviews I don’t see having the issues from the low ratings, those are definitely user error! Start low and slow and gradually add ingredients and it should run smoothly for years, and look like a piece of art when it’s not being used lol. She’s happy so I’m happy!

    Excellent Mixer, Poor Reviews Result of User Error

    I bought this as a gift for my sister on a whim when it was a 60% off deal of the day. I figured it was high quality as its part of their professional series. Once I pulled the trigger, I began researching customer reviews and identified more than a few negative ratings and experiences. Most centered around the mixer's motors burning out within 18 to 24 months of use. I started to feel a sense of buyer's remorse, thinking I may have selected a defective or poor quality mixer. I warned my sister and she looked into it. Her research showed that the negative reviews were a result of user error and misuse, where most of the owners put dense ingredients into the bowl and immediately kicked the mixer into its highest gear. She told me that not doing that would be common sense for anyone familiar with the appliance, and that perhaps those people were not well informed, and didn't read or follow the instructions and recommendations from Kitchen Aid. I gave her the mixer last week and she was able to run a few test drives, which was a treat for me. Her feedback was extremely positive! She loves the mixer, views it as high quality, and is confident it will stand up to the test of time. For background, she's a moderate to casual user. She uses the mixer to cook and bake for others as well as herself, and also uses the mixer heavily for regular, weekly meal prep. I'm extremely happy with the mixer for its high quality as an appliance and gift for my little sister.

    I bout this for my girlfriend for Christmas. She bakes often and has been wanting one for a few years now. I finally grabbed one for a great price on BestBuy.com, I have never been so happy myself. With this new mixer she makes so many tasty things. The versatility of this mixer with attachments you can buy is unrivaled. Overall very happy with this purchase.

    This is by far the best purchase i have made in a while. Very heavy, solid machine letting you know that it has an extremely well made motor. This is a professional piece of equipement and will add another dimension to your kitchen. It can do everything from making simple doughs to rolling pasta sheets, noodles, raviolis, mashed potatoes, ground meat and so many other things. Use it to shred chicken for buffalo dip, make cheese cake batter, or anything else you can think of at all to mix. This thing is a powerhorse.
