Money well spent. It makes mixing cake batter and making bread dough for rolls so much easier. I just love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike The last mixer you'll ever need to buy!
My mother was a professional chef for over 30 years and I got my love for cooking and baking from her. I received this exact same mixer as a gift from her WAY back in 1997. Over the past 18 years she's made everything you can possibly imagine. Up until a few months ago she performed flawlessly but one day wouldn't turn on. At first I was very upset thinking that my faithful old friend had died. Then, after a few cups of coffee and a little bit of thought, I took her out into the shop and removed the motor brushes-or what was left of them after all these years! A quick trip to a small but well stocked local appliance store netted me a new set of brushes. About 5 bucks and 5 minutes worth of work later, my old friend was alive and well and doing what she loves most-mixing up another batch of pizza dough for my youngest daughter and her friends to use for a sleepover that night!
You just can't beat these mixers for price or quality! There are so many attachments available for them that you can use them for practically anything you'll ever want to. The fact that they're still made in the U.S.A. and are easily serviced and repaired is another big plus.
As for the reviews that complain about them being heavy, that's because, except for the knobs that are on the switch and lock lever, they're made completely out of metal including the drive gears. If you want light weight, go to a discount store and buy a cheap plastic toy. Then try to mix something heavy with it. You'll regret it very soon. Personally, I'll stick with my Kitchenaid. In fact, I'm going to buy 2 more as Christmas gifts this year, one for my son and the other for my oldest daughter.

First and foremost, you simply can not go wrong owning one of these machines because it's a space saver in it's own rights when you really think about all the extras you are getting with the simple cost of attachments such as the pasta maker and sausage maker, so forth and so on. Another thing that I like about this machine is the build quality and option to tilt the head. No matter how you cut it, this is a awesome product all the way around the bin and should be owned by every household. I am truly grateful to be one of the lucky owners of this product. I have so many things in a single machine, and again that is something you just simply can't beat. Base on the build quality alone I can tell this product will be around for a very long time. For me this was money very well spent, and I'd do it all over again. Some say that this product is too heavy, This is just an added plus for me because the weight makes it harder to tip over and break and makes me feel that it will be around a very long time.

This is my second KitchenAid mixer. The first one is 14 years old. I use it all the time. The company tried to talk me through fixing the problem, but I'm not very mechanical. So my husband said to buy a new one and, of course, what woman wouldn't jump at the chance. It was difficult to decide between all the pretty colors. While out shopping I found a great deal on the same one like I had. So this is where being a senior, farmwife I decided to be practical and stay with the Classic white mixer. ps (we have to remember that color doesn't make it work any better.) lol The first mixer is going to my daughter and her husband can fix it.

I purchased this mixer in January or February 2016 and it has started to make a weird rattling noise as if the gears are loose. I love the performance of the mixer itself but it hasn't lasted long. I use it at least once a week for my beauty and personal care products business (body butters & scrubs) but sometimes twice. I will contact customer service to see if they can replace a less than 6 month old product. I would recommend for small batches and minimal usage.

I bought the kitchen aid stand mixer this past May and have been experimenting since. We have been baking, and making pasta dough all the time and the removable mixing adapters and bowl makes clean up easy as can be. This thing is no joke.

I received this mixer for Christmas and have loved using it ever since. I do everything in this mixer and don't have to bend down to reach for my hand mixer for any job. It's convenient to have on my counter and I've found that things I've made/baked have turned out with a much better texture than with using a hand mixer. I like that I can be getting the next part of recipe ready while it's mixing the first part (you don't have this time saving benefit with a traditional hand mixer). Bread dough also turns out much better than with hand kneading, and again, you can set the timer and be tending to other things in the kitchen ... a win, win in my book!

Excellent mixer - best wedding gift ever! Works very well, nice to be hands free when baking. This mixer does it all, baking cookie and breads, and purchasing a few attachments will have you making your own pasta and stuffing sausage! Excellent quality from KitchenAid - a must have for any kitchen.
