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'm really enjoying my new KitchenAid mixer. I love the color, red, & it does everything I've tried with it. The only problem I've encountered is the fastener in the back is so tight that you have to turn the mixer sideways to get everything matched up & apply force to get it fastened. I'm hoping it loosens up some as time goes by. It'll hold 10 cups of flour to make pie crust, 16 egg whites for meringue, & a large batch of noodles. I highly recommend this mixer to anyone making larger quantities.
This is an excellent product which will ease the work of baking and make it more pleasurable. It arrived well packaged and in perfect condition considering it came from USA. The price was acceptable and with the use of a small transformer can be used on this side of the Atlantic.
Omg I Love This Mixer! It Is Beautiful! I Got Such An Awesome Price For It! It's Exactly What I Wanted! I Don't Have To Worry About Burning Anymore Mixers Up With This Mixer!

This product was bought as a gift....My daughter absolutely loves it!! It does the double batches of cookies with ease...which was one of the reasons for purchasing this product.... The splatter guard with the opening to add ingredients was a real plus....It also has metal parts instead of plastic!

Is this new or a reconditioned product?ekwoody on Dec 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This QuestionThere are no answers to this question yet, be the first to answer it.
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
