Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lb76 best ever!
I bought this mixer about a month ago after watching many bakers using kitchenaid mixers on YouTube. I was skeptical that a mixer could make much of a difference in baking. After using the mixer, I was amazed at the difference it made! My cake, icings, bread and many other things have turned out better! I would have never believed the difference had I not used it myself! The kitchenaid recipes for bread were fabulous! No kneading by hand! My mom didn't believe the kitchenaid would knead the bread and was totally astounded at how great it turned out and as a matter of fact immediately went out and bought a kitchenaid for herself! Unbelievable product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MMegan Great product!
I bought the 5-Quart stand mixer last fall of 2014 and I am so glad I did! This is a wonderful product that I use weekly. It is easy to use and is very convenient to bake with. I love to bake and having this product has made baking easier, faster and more enjoyable! No more hand mixing yourself and getting tired just when you start. I bought the red stand mixer, which I love because it is my favorite color and is looks great in my kitchen! I was so happy with this product that I bought the ice cream maker as well and registered for all kitchen aid products for my wedding registry! I highly recommend this product and all kitchen aid products.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dissappointed with this NOT WORTH THE MONEY!
I have been dreaming about owning one of these for years. Finally, my husband surprised me for Christmas! As I removed the pieces out of the box, I noticed a chip on the front of the mixer. The mixer only really has 6 speeds: the numbers on the side are 0, stir, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. This is really 0-6: stir, 2 and 4 are slow, 6 is medium/fast and 8 and 10 are the same as 6 (no speed change)! The whisker tool is made of a very CHEAP who-knows-what material and before using the product appeared to have been years old with the "metal coating" already coming off and looks of rust or wear! If you use any speed higher than 4 the mixer shakes and makes a lot of noise. On a positive note, it does mix. I would not recommend this product or purchase one again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AddiesMom Great time saver, doesn't get sides.
My family bought this for me as a gift, and I've been wanting one for years. I love it! It makes baking really quick and effortless, although sometimes I have to remind myself I don't have to stare at it while it works! The only things I don't like is that it doesn't get close to the edges so I have to turn it off and scrape it. I'm also disappointed that the attachments are so much money. I understand the ones that are for a different purpose (pasta, chopping, ice cream) but when I searched for a lid or new paddle with some sort of silicone scraping tool I was disappointed by the prices. You get what you pay for though! This product is awesome, and I'm looking forward to getting additional bowls so I can make fillings and cakes, and chill parts for creams/dough at the same time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jonijean Great, but . . .
I have wanted a Kitchen Aid mixer for a long time but could not justify the purchase. I had an Oster stand mixer that was nearly 30 years old and still working pretty well. When it finally started acting a little wonky I took the chance to buy the Kitchen Aid. I really love this mixer. It is noticeably better than my old one when it comes to mixing more thoroughly. The only drawback is that whenever you want to add something or scrape down the sides of the bowl you have to life the top to do so. My old mixer had a wider bowl so I could do all that while it was still going. However, the superior mixing makes up for this slight shortfall.

I received the 5 Quart Res Stand Mixer as a Christmas gift. I have used it almost every weekend baking and cooking. I absolutely love my stand mixer! The tilting head is a life saver. I've used a stand mixer that was just stationary, it was increadbly hard to get the bowl out from under the head! If you are deciding on which one, make sure you have a tilting head!

I always wanted one if these and my Daughter bought it for me! What a great gift! Having used commercial grade mixers for over 25 years, I now realize that KitchenAid mixers are as close to commercial grade quality and performance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hallockg Full Featured. Powerful. Great Attachments.
I've wanted a Kitchenaid stand mixer for a long time. Very well made with a powerful 325-watt motor. I also purchased the ice cream and food grinder attachments. I love to cook and this is one of the best investments I have made for my kitchen.
