I have always wanted a KitchenAid mixer and after remodeling our kitchen I decided it was now time. I was tired of using my hand mixer and this stand mixer is making my job so much easier. I love that I just put the ingredients in the stainless steel bowl and it does all the work instead of me. The Aqua Sky color looks retro and is the perfect pop of color for my kitchen counter. And best of all Overstock had the best price of any website I looked at. I say do yourself a favor and don't wait 40 years to get one like I did!
After years of seeing these on the counters of friends I ordered the KM mixer for my mom to use when she cooks for my parties. She is in love and it will probably disappear from my kitchen and magically end up in hers soon. The color is perfect for my yellow kitchen with light teal accents, so even though it takes up a lot of counter space I don't mind- it's a decorator piece.
You can't go wrong with this mixer. I love the color, it's very close to a tiffany blue. I only wish my kitchen was big enough for a bigger 6 or 7-quart. But I already used it to make 2 layer cakes and it worked well. Now can't wait to get some attachments.
I've had my stand mixer for a few months and I love it. The only thing to watch for is when you first get your mixer- hand wash the bowl very well with a very good dish soap. If yours is anything like mine it will take a few good cleanings so your white buttercream doesn't come out gray. Also, I really recommend hand washing the bowl and not placing it in your dishwasher. Besides that... this has been a really great mixer for just about anything you want to whip up.
I couldn't be more happy with my new Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. I love the color, which is just like the picture. It's run perfectly thus far, and I assume will continue to do so. I would definitely buy this again on Overstock.com because of the ease of purchase, as well as the price.
I received my KitchenAid aqua blue mixer, and I took it out of the box, and it is just perfect. IDK if I can use the rebate however, as this is a gift for my future daughter in law's shower of which I don't know the date yet. I took it out, everything was there. The price was incredible inexpensive for this color, as I know alot of the stores jack the price up when it is one of the newer colors. I got my red on in 1990 and I am still using it, and it cost more than this one at Overstock. I am so happy that I was able to find one at a cost that I could afford. My future daughter in law had her heart set on this color, and every where I looked they were almost $$$. Thank you so much, and I do hope that she can still use the rebate when she fills out the card, as this is a shower gift, or a wedding gift, not quite sure yet. They are getting married Aug 5, 2016. So it is all gift wrapped and ready to go. Thank you so much Overstock. I am now a fan of you.
How did I ever do without a stand mixer? I can whip up almost anything, including bread, in no time flat. This is my second one. I wore out the 25-year-old one. While the stand mixer is working, you can go on to the next step of your recipe. Sounds trivial, but esp. During the holidays - when you're making a lot of things, it makes the process so efficient. Try it - you will LOVE it!
