After many years of wishing, I finally have a KitchenAid stand mixer. The operation is so smooth and relatively quite compared to one I've had in the past. I went ahead and splurged on the 6qt model just in case I decide to make large dishes. The paddle attachment is superb at mixing and blending. I haven't had the chance yet to use the whisk or dough hook. My only recommendation to the company, the cover is flimsy and could stand to be made of a thicker plastic/polymer. Otherwise, I would have given a 5th star.

We bought this a few weeks ago and we're thrilled with it! The dough hooks do a great job of mixing the dough until all of it is worked off the sides of the bowl without having to use a spatula to keep scraping the sides. I have a problem with my hands, so this is a real blessing. Without having to knead the dough & wearing myself out, I don't dread making wonderful rolls, mashing potatoes and any number of tasty treats. We made cinnamon rolls one day and when we rolled the dough out, there weren't any flour pockets in the dough where it didn't get mixed well enough. The whisk whipped the frosting to perfection almost immediately! It's very easy to clean. I wash everything by hand & wipe off the mixer in just a few minutes time. We absolutely love it, as it's making kitchen work much easier for us!

I have had a Kitchen Aid for most of my life. I loved my mixer, but I had to finally lay it to rest. I have had the same one for nearly 20 years, and after thousands of recipes, some awesome and some not so good, she finally gave out on me. So I upgraded to the professional model and can say that the big sister is churning out recipes that are matched to her little sister's memory! Maybe a little better. I will continue to use the kitchen aid brand as in my opinion, they are unmatched!

I was finally able to treat myself to this a few years ago. After a few months of use the beater started turning my cookie and cake batters grey. I didn't have a dishwasher at that point so that was not the issue. I replaced the beater with the coated beater which chipped into my cake batter after its first use. I bought a second beater which chipped after its second use. I expected more use out of this investment but am left with an expensive mixer with no beater options. I was on this site looking for a quality beater but I see no other options. This mixer has been sitting on my counter unused for quite some time. It's going in the basement and I will buy a different mixer. I hope someday soon they can create a better beater that matches the quality of the mixer. A beaterless mixer is quite useless to me.

I absolutely LOVE my new kitchen aid mixer! I have only had it for about three weeks, but I have made sugar cookies, cheesecake, french bread and a couple of cakes. The time that I save by using my new mixer I can now waste doing other trivial things! While the mixer is running I can go and get my next ingredient, and it mixes so much faster. I don't know how I lived without it!! Well worth the money!

This mixer has saved me so much stress and frustration from pre owned mixers. I've only owned this mixer for a little over a month and I would have to say I've used it over 30 times. This mixer can handle my home made breads, my cakes and my icings with no problem. The attachments are easy to put on as well as remove. It is a mixer that deserves to be sitting on the counter where everyone can see it and not hidden in the cubbord. I will recommend this mixer to all my fellow bakers. This was money well spent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OkieLinda I love this mixer!
I have been waiting for over 40 years to buy this mixer and am so happy I now have it. My previous mixer, the smaller version made by this company has been excellent as evidenced by the 40 plus years of service. I have only had this mixer a few weeks but am in love with it. And I love the color selections available too. As for performance, My cinnamon roll dough kneads up in minutes, is perfect texture and easy to handle. My whipped toppings are perfectly made with just the right amount of volume. I can't find anything negative about it. I have not had time to use all the attachments that I bought with this mixer yet, but will review each of them separately when I have had sufficient use to be able to do so accurately.

I have had my eye on this bad boy for a while now. I received this as a wedding present. As soon as I ripped off the wrapping paper, tears filled by eyes from happiness. I have only had it for a month and used it to make a pumpkin cheesecake. It worked better than expected. Very easy to use and efficient.
