Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laura Makes Baking so Easy!
I got this for a wedding gift from my grandma who has had one for as long as I can remember. She told me it will make cooking and baking so much easier and she was glad to pass on the tradition. It has been the best thing to have in our kitchen! I can make cakes, cookies, and breads without having to stir or knead by hand! This saves not only so much time but it saves me a lot of pain and gives me delicious results everytime! I would highly recommend this to anyone whether you are just starting your own kitchen or if you have gone without for 40 years, it will change your life!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MV Love it!
I have used this a dozen times within the past week. I absolutely love it. The only issue(and it's not a big one) is the screws on it are a bit loose when pulled out of the box. I did plenty of research on stand mixers before buying this, and the one issue I kept seeing was that the loose screws caused issues if not tightened...like things breaking off type issues. Sure enough, when I put the Philips head screwdriver to it, they were very loose. I tightened them up and we'll see how long I have to go before they come loose again, or if they even come loose again. I assume they come loose just because of the vibration of the machine over time. Hopefully mine lasts as long as every other review I've read. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I grew up using my parents' kitchen aid stand mixer and loved it. As an adult who bakes a lot, buying one for myself seemed too luxurious and expensive. So I used lame hand mixers and baking took way more time than it should. Let me offer a word of advice to any young adult who bakes/cooks and doesn't own a Kitchen Aid stand mixer: buy one now and you'll use it for life! All the time I wasted mixing by hand was for the birds and my creations come out better with this mixer. I also was able to purchase my favorite color and though I have a tiny kitchen it owns counter space! Don't wait like I did, everyone deserves this excellent machine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda the baker I have two of these
I am a baker and my kitchenaid mixer makes my job so much easier. I had an older version that I have used over 10 years and when my husband and I separated I had to have one as I was lost without the one I let my husband have. I love the plastic guide for adding ingredients which my older version didn't have. The only complaint is that it is very heavy so I keep it on my counter so I don't have to lift it. I would definitely recommend it to those who bake. So nice to have your hands free while mixer is going. Cheesecake is a cinch. Just turn on mixer and let it go. Same with cookies and kneading bread. Love it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated baker Quality control issue
Kitchenaid needs to improve quality control. The mixing bowl had a silver residue which came off on the frosting I was making. Customer service rep instructed me to wash the bowl with a lemon juice and salt mixture to remove the residue. However 1 or 2 washing didn't do it. I scrubbed that bowl 8-10 times with lemon juice and salt, then a baking soda paste, and then vinegar before all the residue came off. I ruined several batches of frosting. It was extremely frustrating since I had bought the mixer to use immediately as I was hosting a party! Such an expensive appliance should be better inspected!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nicky Love this machine
Honestly, prior to this purchase I thought these were silly appliances to have, but my husband really wanted one. A month later and I use this thing almost every other day to make my protein pancakes. The mixing is much better than what I can produce by hand, making my pancakes unbelievably fluffy, almost like real pancakes. The ease of use is another selling point. I just throw everything in the bowl, let it mix, and walk away to do whatever else. The cleaning is also very easy, no more than I would clean by hand. In addition, the design is sturdy and sleek. Obviously this appliance is not a necessity, but has improved my mornings a lot. I highly recommend this to anyone who mixes often. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tinker Farm Here's what I think.
I had a Kitchen Aid stand mixer for some 25 years and gave it away to my daughter about a year ago. I thought I could do without another. We make all our own bread and that can become a real task, especially if you've been working outside all day. Well, enough was enough. We bought the next bigger model for the added power and capacity. Works great, just as I had expected. There seems to be quite a bit of play where the motor is hinged to the base. More so than my old mixer. I hope it holds out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I received this mixer as a bridal shower gift. This was certainly the most loved and wanted item on my registry! I had never used one before so I thought I would need some support assembling and using this new product. However, the product came (almost) completely assembled! All I needed to do was switch the mixer paddle that I wanted to use. Although the mixer comes with detailed instructions, I was able to immediately use the machine because it was so simple. This is a great tool for a new cook like myself as it allows me to multi-task in the kitchen. Not to mention, the teal mixer looks quite pretty sitting on the counter top!
