Rated 3 out of 5Â by Pam7 Product has great features, but...........
Very excited to finally own a Kitchen Aid mixer. However, I wish I had been able to try out the Artisan (which is smaller) and this one. It's very difficult to scrape the sides and I find that it doesn't mix that well at the very bottom of the bowl. In order to scrape the sides down, I have to remove the bowl and then put it back on. I can overlook that it weighs a ton, but am disappointed with the above. I don't use it to make frosting or filling, because it's just too large and is more bother than using my portable mixer. Oh well - kind of upset about the hundreds of $$$ I paid. I think it may NOT be the right machine for the average baker. Try the Artisan first.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by snowwhite A mixer to last a lifetime
I have dreamed of having a KitchenAid standup mixer for a long time now and I couldn't be more pleased with it. The professional series is sure to last a lifetime with the metal components. This mixer can stand anything from constant whipping to super thick batters that would burn out most other brands.
With the 6 Quart, I can easily make all of my double batches rather than having to make each separately or make a huge mess. I can't wait to get more attachments for it in the future to fully utilize its power.
With so many colors to chose from, my mint green/teal is the perfect shade. The only thing I don't like is the flat beater doesn't scrape the sides well but I've already gotten the attachment with the built in scraper to make baking so much easier.

I love love my KitchenAid mixer I purchased I love to bake and this is the perfect mixer for my needs. I worked at a restaurant for many years my boss purchased a KitchenAid mixer for the bakery where I made pies and cakes. He purchased it in the 90's
I have made thousands and thousands of pies and cakes with this mixer. I have retired but I still go once every two weeks and make 40 to 50 pies which he freezes for later use. I am still using the same mixer he purchased. I would recommend KitchenAid to everyone it is a great and well built product I have enjoyed working with it. Thanks Peggy

Rated 1 out of 5Â by IanW Disposable Product. Bad Kitchenaid Customer Service
Bought this product for the KitchenAid name--have since learned my lesson. Product lasted two years being used barely to half capacity, then the gears just stopped working. When I contacted Kitchenaid, they surprised me by really not caring an ounce. They would not help me an iota because it was beyond warranty--unless I'd shell out more money to them to fix it. They even tried to make is sound like it was my fault. They claimed that the 14 cup maximum is INCLUDING all ingredients, when their manual clearly says you can use recipes that call for 14 cups of flour (ASIDE from all the other ingredients). When I told them that, they quickly changed tact. Said I was probably leaving it running too long...I have another mixer in a comparable price-point that I use super-heavily, and have never had a problem with that in years. If you're looking for a product that isn't disposable--and if you'd like the company you're buying from to care about what happens to you even after the 1 year warranty--I'd recommend avoiding this product, and Kitchenaid.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Traci775 Perfect for the person who hates appliances
I personally hate appliances....they take up counter space and I never end up using them. Not this appliance....I LOVE it!!! I put it on the counter, placed my black cover over it and started searching for recipes. I love that it has a cover, but I have found that the cover never stays on because I just want to use my mixer. I have made cookies, bread and cake and the mixer never struggled at all. Other mixers I have owned in the past could not handle a double batch of chocolate chip cookies, much less a triple batch, My Kitchen-Aid handled it like a champ. I am not saying that I am an appliance convert, but I will say that I do not know how I survived NOT having this appliance on my counter.
