I've been wanting another ka mixer for some time now (gave my old one to my mom because I never used it, been wanting it back ever since) after searching for the best deal, I came across the ones on overstock. I got a XX% off coupon for signing up for emails and at the time they were offering a $XX mail in rebate on select machines...I should be getting that any day now. So to sum it up, I saved $XX on an awesome mixer that was already at a discounted price from other stores, yay!!! (FYI, I got a new machine not a refurbished, I'm sure the refurb are great, I just wanted the manuf warranty that comes with a new one)
I have had an "entry level" KitchenAid mixer for about 15 years, and I decided to upgrade to the Artisan model after reading many favorable reviews. I am so pleased with the purchase - it is an excellent mixer, very well designed, powerful and beautiful to look at. Great price, too.
I bought this as a christmas gift for a family member. They told me they squealed with glee when they opened the box. They love it and have already used it many times. It performs well, looks good, and was a great purchase. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an excellent stand mixer, in fact, I would not buy any other brand other than kitchen aid. I will be buying one for myself!
I've always wanted a kitchen aid stand mixer, and when I found them on overstock.com I finally bought one. I spent days reading reviews and at the kitchen aid website to get an idea of the different types of mixers, tilt head or bowl lift, power, colors, I read all I could before ordering, because for me, this was a major purchase and I wanted to get it right the first time. I've used the mixer for beating eggs, mixing cookie dough, making cinnamon rolls, and pizza dough. I bought the tilt head machine and have not been disappointed. It's easy to clean, works like a horse, and everything I've made has come out great! The motor does seem to sound bogged down with the pizza dough, but I've also read for these machines that's not unusual. It's the way the motor works. It's a piece of machinery and needs to be run. I'm very satisfied and would not hesitate to buy this mixer again. I bought the metallic chrome color, the picture is very accurate. It is heavy, so find a place on your counter for it, you won't want to move it around.
