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.

I have many food allergies. So I cook everything from scratch. My mixer gets used on nearly a daily basis. I already had a kitchenaide heavy duty mixer that has been a workhorse for 10 years now. I needed an additional mixer to save time. For instance yesterday I made French bread, cookies with icing, chocolate mousse and and overnight oats all at the same time. The artisan mixer is so smooth when it is whipping egg whites. It's also powerful. I have to say I do like the tilt back head rather than the bowl lift. If they made a heavy duty with a tilt back I would be in heaven I was using a Hamilton Beach hand mixer for cookie dough. The dough actually made a sort of tornado that rose up between the beaters! The artisan handles that cookie dough with no problems. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I received this product as a gift, and it has really changed everything about my home baking. Prior to my ownership, I would hand mix almost everything; including frosting and cheesecake batter. Results were always amazing, however, the KitchenAid mixer adds a level of uniformity and almost silkiness to everything. Each new recipe I think, how can I use my new mixer. It's just great.

This mixer has some real strength to it and gets the job done well. It comes with three different mixer attachments which are robust and easy to clean. To perform this work, it has to be powerful, but with power comes weight. It is not easy to reposition this device from the back of the counter to the front for work when needed. May I suggest a collapsible wheel or roller to help move it on a counter top. Other than that, it is a strong machine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I've been wanting this mixer for years but didn't really have the money to purchase it. Thankfully I received it as a gift, my mom. Thanks again mom, it's awesome! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
