    • Excellent mixer!!! Saved my hands!!

      I bought this because I wanted efficiency when whipping up cakes/cupcakes and other scratch recipes. I'll just say that it definitely gets the job done!! I can't wait to get the 8-quart mixer!!

      I have been happy with all my purchases from Overstock including the Kitchen Aid mixer and food processor. My one complaint is that the 6qt. size did not come with the lift feature. I compromised size for convenience. At ninety one years of age the machine it difficult for me to lift, especially when full of food!

    • My new mixer

      I love my new mixer. It was a little bit challenging getting it put together, but once I figured it out, it's great.

    • some reservations

      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.

    • Awesome machine

      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.

    • Big and powerful

      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.

    • Is this new or a reconditioned product?

      • Hi ekwoody, this product is new and not reconditioned otherwise we would need to specify this in the title. Thanks for shopping with us.

    • 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!

      • 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.

    • Does this mixer have a metal or plastic gear box?

    • Does this mixer has the 1yr manufacturer warranty?

      • This comes with a 30 day distributor warranty, but you can add 2 or 4 year extended warranty that is sold by us.

    • What are the dimensions and weight of the shipping box? And can I run it with 220W power instead of the 110W in the US?

      • The dimensions of the shipping box are 20 inches long by 17 inches wide by 14 inches high. We do not recommend that you operate it on 220W.
