I bought this for my daughter for Christmas 2011. She is a senior in college and has increasingly taken to baking with my wife when she is home on holidays so I decided this might make a great gift that can last a lifetime - I love gifts that fall into that category. We have had a KitchenAid mixer for at least 20 years and it still looks new. There is no other appliance in our Kitchen that is anywhere near that age and in that condition. The white color is also timeless so there is little risk of it going out of style. It may never be considered high style but it will always fit in without too much difficulty. Highly Recommended :-)

This was my first time ordering a product from Overstock.com. The product is a Kitchenaid stand mixer. The product description was accurate and the price paid was unbeatable. The mixer arrived at my home in perfect condition and on the day promised. I'm very happy with the website and will definitely order more items from it in the future.

My daughter had been wanting this mixer for many years. Thanks to overstock.com and the incredible sale, I was finally able to buy it for her. Best mixer around and I'm so thankful for this site. She's been baking and cooking with it ever since we gave it to her. Works awesome and have had no issues with it. Kitchen aid makes a great product and I wouldn't buy any other brand.
The only downside is that it's a bit heavy and as I don't like anything sitting on my counters, I have to pick it up when I want to use it. Other than that, I love it. I can make the best frostings, cakes, mashed potatoes and just about anything else that needs stirring, mixing, blending or whipping.
I LOVE THIS MIXER! I have been without a stand mixer for 4 years since my 30 year old plastic stand mixer broke. I have been wanting a KitchenAid and while baking last Christmas using a cheap handheld mixer I decided I would shop in earnest for a new KitchenAid. Why did I wait so long??!! I LOVE THIS MIXER! The first thing I made was pizza crust. I usually use my Cuisinart, but the KitchenAid is so much easier to clean! Love it!

Motor made a loud whining noise on first try, and over heated after only a few minutes on medium speed. Is Overstock where KitchenAid goes to ship factory rejected machines? Return process not "EASY" if vendor is a third party. After waiting for illusive "return merchandise authorization", many days and phone calls later I received RMA return label. Do not shop here expecting first quality.
This was a replacement for another KitchenAid Mixer which I sold when we moved. I had my old one for over 25 years, and although it was a refurbished one, I never had any problems with it. So I already knew that I was buying a great product. I love these mixers and they are definitely worth every penny.
The bowl no longer stays in the base once you start mixing something with a heavy batter. First few times, I thought I just hadn't secured it in its base completely but upon examination, the bowl's metal base has eroded. We don't use it that often and we are just home cooks - there is no reason it should be breaking down in just over a year. Other issue is that the enamel on the implements (i.e. paddle) started chipping off - sometimes right into the batter. This thing is so expensive and I am so upset that this has happened. Warranty is only for the motor which of course is still fine. Don't recommend.
