I got this to avoid kneading bread by hand mostly. Since I got it, I've made oatmeal cookies, coconut bread, bagels, white bread, whole wheat bread, and (most delicious of them all) a soft whole wheat bread. So clearly it's adequate.
However, I have two caveats:
- the fact that it's bowl lift instead of head tilt makes it harder to put in or take out one of the mixer attachments without pulling ingredients out of the bowl, and in general makes using the machine messier
- you have to watch this while kneading, even if it's only enough flour for one loaf, because the bowl can jump off its restraints (this is ridiculous but true) and you'll have to quickly stop the machine so the hook doesn't scratch the bowl or friction won't damage the motor.
I bought this as a gift for my husband who loves to cook and bake bread. It is a replacement for my 17 year old smaller version Kitchen Aid. Makes the best bakes light and airy and the dough hook is amazing on this mixer. The red is just what he wanted and lookes awesome in its new home. Great price cheaper than any other I found anywhwere. Thanks Overstock.
We had been looking for a new mixer to replace our old old old broken one. This was exactly what we wanted. We weren't looking for red but so glad we got it. It's a deep beautiful read, almost cranberry, no orange tones at all.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect match - -more beautiful in person
Please tell us about the quality of the product. can't buy anything better then Kitchen Aid
How accurate was the on site description of the product? great, spot on
I PREVIOUSLY OWNED A 4.5 QT FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD ANY TROUBBLE WITH IT. I EXPECT THE SAME. THE SOFT SIDED PADDLE SHOULD BD INCLUDED AND BESRNT TO ALL CUSTOMERS, REMEMBER BUYING MADE IN AMERICA SHOUD ALSO INCLUDE BEING VALUED AS A CUSTOMER, WE AR TALKING ABOUT WHAT MITE COST $5.00 TO MAKE.BEING A UNION WORKER I AM COMPELLED TO BUY AMERICAN.
I bought this Kitchenaid to replace my old 1978 Kitchenaid. I like the red - it is very pretty. The machine is powerful and mixes well. It is rather noisy when running at medium and high speeds. The bowl is big and holds large batches. I gave the mixer 4 stars because I really dislike the material that the beaters are made of. They can't be put in the dishwasher and feel very cheap. I plan to replace them one at a time with the coated beaters.
Hi ekwoody, this product is new and not reconditioned otherwise we would need to specify this in the title. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 10, 2013
Previous answer about gear box is not clear..."Gear box" and "gear" is not the same thing. There have been a lot of issues with the plastic gear box (cover of the gears) breaking, and newer models do not have the plastic gear box. Does this model have a plastic gear box, or a metal gear box? Thank you!charlenem on Feb 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. I just found out that all Next Generation Models (KV25G0X, KM25G0X and the KP26M1X) are produced with a metal transmission housing which makes the unit even more durable. They also have all metal gearing” So yes this model does have the metal gear box.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 26, 2013
