Picture is true to color! Such a pretty mixer. My family and I all pitched in to get my mother the kitchen aid mixer she'd always wanted! She was so happy when she unwrapped it!! She's used it every chance she's gotten. Also, the rebate that we got when we purchased it is legitimate. It takes several weeks to receive it but it does come! :)
It's amusing that, along with an invitation to write a review for this stand mixer, I've been offered a $10 bonus for helping someone "make an informed decision" about what to buy. That's exactly what happened with this purchase. I bought this with an elderly friend who did not know how to shop online, but who is now raving about how wonderful Overstock.com is. She sat at my side as I demonstrated how easy it was to browse, evaluate, and purchase Overstock.com items. She chose this stand mixer for a wedding gift and was delighted with her purchase, especially after I showed her how she saved over $100 by not purchasing the mixer from Bloomingdale's (which is where the wedding couple were registered). This is not the first friend I've introduced to Overstock.com in this way. I can name at least 5 more of my friends who have been "recruited" as Overstock.com customers, and I'm probably not the only regular Overstock.com customer who promotes your business in this manner. You no doubt have many fans and customers who buy via someone else's account. Yay! for Overstock.com!
My husband has been trying to get me to buy a stand mixer for years, but I just didn't want one so big and bulky. However, we recently renovated our kitchen and it was the perfect time to add this beautiful mixer in the kitchen. The color is perfect with our gray walls and Carrera marble countertops. Not to mention, it is fun to use since I bake all of the desserts for our family holidays. Love it!
This would have received a 5 star review if I didn't have to dink around returning the first one, because it was defective, or a refurbished item sold as new. (Overstock does NOT furnish a pickup - they make you take it to the nearest UPS drop off location, which in MY neck of the woods is an hour and 15 minutes away - total BS.The difference between the first, and replacement were like night and day. LOVE this mixer. I've actually gone back to making Christmas cookies, and making home made whipped cream on a whim, because its finished in a flash. As for value, they can be gotten cheaper, if you're willing to look around, and wait. They seem to be priced based on color - if I wanted a black one, I would have paid almost $$$ for it - since I wanted Cornflower blue, I paid less than $$$ for it. So, do your homework. Once you settle on one, however, you'll be pleased as punch.
Got this for my wife for her birthday. Absolutely loves it! I love it too! I've probably gained five pounds from all the food she makes from this Mixer. Seriously. If you're having doubts about the price. DON'T! It's well worth the money and it lasts a life time! My grandma has had hers for thirty years and still uses it. She's 95.
