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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThatSheBaker A gift list
I am proud to announce that I am officially an owner of a KitchenAid Stand Mixer!!! Woot woot!! Growing up they always asked what would you like for Christmas? What would you like for your Birthday? I'd make the list, a stand mixer was always on top. I knew I would have no chance of owning one unless I saved. This year, I didn't put it on the list, I had lost hope after all of those years. Hello birthday #26! My mother did it!! Wow!!! Unbelievable!! Perf!! This mixer is user friendly, quiet, and is allowing me time to accomplish my side duties! Can hardly wait to use it again and again!! Kudos to KitchenAid!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I received this mixer 24 years ago as a wedding present. I use it often and it is still as good as new! As long as you haven't changed the design (why mess with a good thing, right?) I highly recommend this mixer. Even the attachments are still in perfect shape. I especially love the metal bowl for its durability and ease of cleaning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by G-MA the pound cake lady Finally a great mixer for a great baker
I have been wanting a kitchenaid for the longest time but could never seem to afford one. Finally one day I just bit the bullet and spent the money and boy was that the best thing I ever did. I bake quite a bit (over 300 pound cakes a year) this mixer is awesome!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dee the grandmother Outstanding product.
This product performs exactly like I would expect a KitchenAid to perform. This is my second one in 50 years. It is lightweight enough for this senior citizen to lift from lower cabinet to counter, runs smoothly and quietly and does everything I expect it to and more.
