I purchased this Kitchenaid Pro 600 mixer in June of 2013. On June 6, one year later this Pro mixer has stopped working. Overstock refuses to do anything so I am just out $385. When the mixer did work it was VERY noisy and it was hard to get the beaters out when finished mixing. Do not purchase this piece of junk. My old mixer is still working after 25 years. I had to transfer what I was mixing into it to finish what I was making. Kitchenaid and Overstock.com have lost a customer. I will not be buying from either again.
What's not to like about a KitchenAid? It's the best machine out there for cooks. Mine arrived in a damaged box and the top of the machine has a small blemish in the paint. It was not worth the hassle to return it for an exchange, so I just kept it. It would have been OK if someone just took due care with packing it. the paddles and attachments were rattling around the box and I am surprised it was not more damaged. It works like I expected- fabulous.
I think the color is fabulous and fits in well with my incognito kitchen interior design. The quality of this is machine exceeds my expectations, and I believe I will be able to pass it down for generations to come. I am happy that I was able to make cupcakes in large volumes during the holidays with this 6-qt capacity.
I have always wanted a stand mixer and was so excited when I saw this one...perfect color and price! I ordered it and received it within a few days. I used it 3 x's the first few days that I had it. I probably won't use it a lot but it sure is nice to have it. The color is perfect!
I chose KitchenAid both for the quality and the fact that it was made in the USA. After considerable research, I found what I was looking for at Overstock.com at the best price. The product was shipped quickly and in excellent condition. Very well packaged. I chose the color Espresso and it is as it appears on the web page. Love the color.
This equipment is awesome! Does a wonderful job on everything that I have tried so far. The shortfall is the lack of the tilt back head. Yes the bowl raises and lowers, but to remove the bowl you will have to drop the paddle or whip or hook into the batter in order to remove the bowl. If you don't need the most power or the biggest bowl do yourself the favor of buying a less wattage model with the tilting head. I bought one of these for my brother and now I wish I had gotten the smaller one.
I have put many hours on it, and it works wonderfully! I just love everything about it, it saves so much time and work. The only downside is that of course with the bowl being metal, you can't put it in the microwave.

Funny. First thing I made was some Chocolate chip Cookies. My old mixer chopped up the chips for some reason. This new Pro 600 folded the ingredients in well. With out effort. Some far I'm loving it. Thanks to Ostock, kitchenAid, and the guy who loves baked goods. Lol

If you bake, you have one of these -- plain and simple. The 6 qt size is the best since it makes it a no brainer to make double batches and sometimes even triple batch sizes. Fair warning - this is heavy equipment. I keep on a cart and roll into kitchen so I dont have to lift and store under a counter.
