Bought this as a bridal shower present for my daughter. She was thrilled and said it was a "right of passage" to get one of these. Who knew? I got the wrong color, but we were easily able to return and get the new color. Excellent customer service!
Don't know why I lived without this for so long. The mixer is such a time saver. I used it three times in one day just because it is so versatile. I used it to knead dough, shred chicken, mix batter for a bread pudding all within one hour! I am so happy I purchased this and it matches my kitchen perfectly.
This is my second Kitchenaide and mixer in 13 years. My old cobalt blue one works just fine but when we remodeled our kitchen I wanted a new one to match our new choices. This Crystal Blue is a perfect compliment to the paint, wood and stainless in our kitchen. It is on display in our kitchen (as was our old model), because the look truly is a piece of art. More importantly, the mixer is a work horse and will last for a very long time (or until you want a new color!), and makes baking so much easier.
