I bought this because I couldn't resist the price, for the artisan design series model the price was excellent. I figured there was something wrong with it but seemed to be in tact. I got so obsessed about what color to get in a mixer I ended buying persimmion also. Well I couldn't return this one so it will be a very beautiful gift for my sis. Goes great with antique bronze fixtures in kitchen, unfortunately my kitchen is all dark hard wood floors, cabinets and black major appliances that my husband said pick the one that has color so it pops. I also bought the new 6qt bowl lift model and returned it. It was too much of a pain to deal with getting the bowl in and out, if your deciding between the two models get the tilt head. Promise you.
After searching for some time now between all models we decided to go with the KitchenAid KSM155GBQC. The color is amazing and the photo simply dose not do it any justice. Everything you need to get you started right out the box. If your not a master chef/baker have no fear because you soon will feel like one.

I love the mixer but the the design of the bowl could be better for the amount of money spent the bowl does not engage to the mixer snug enough and I have tried adjusting the ring at the bottom and I have to assume its just the design of the bowl
This is my second stand mixer from Kitchenaid. I have always loved my Kitchenaid, but this new one compared to my old one is a world of difference. This one seems a lot more robust and quieter, the glass bowl is awesome because of the pour spout and it's a lot wider then my old metal one. I have already recommended this model to a lot of my friends and it is worth the buy!
The quality and color of this mixer is AWESOME! It's not shiny golden copper like copper pots... it's a little more refined, slightly crackled antique finish.. I'm tempted to describe it as industrial or automotive in feeling, but in the BEST possible interpretation! This color is PERFECTLY NEUTRAL and will complement most kitchen decor very well. I've used it once and was delighted how easily it handles for the weight of the machine, and bowl. Attachments fit easily, and controls are simple. After decades of portable mixers, I've permanently graduated to the ease of this AWESOME machine forever!

After drooling over these mixers for nearly 20 years, I finally took the plunge when I saw this one for such an incredible price. I've had it for almost a year now, and it has exceeded all my expectations! The color is beautiful, and it is a true workhorse. My favorite discovery has been shredding chicken with the paddle attachment - when I buy a whole rotisserie chicken, I immediately remove the skin and bones while still warm, and in a minute or two you have beautifully shredded chicken ready to use in recipes.
Got this mixer as a birthday gift for my daughter. She lost custody of the previous one in the divorce. Her 16 year old daughter told me that she would want a copper one, and I remembered that she commented on a Kitchenaid mixer with a glass bowl. Did I mention that she makes phenomenal wedding, birthday and shower cakes. Happiest of birthdays to a great Mom and Daughter!
I ordered this because of the color and I love it. I had a Kitchen Aid before and disliked it to the point that I returned it. I think the glass bowl makes a difference, it mixes better then the metal bowl without having to stop and stir the bottom to make sure it's mixing right.
What can you say? This is a quality product from a great company. My kitchen endevours are a lot more exciting now as I know I have a great assistant in the form of this machine. Bread and pizza doe making is a breeze, and I also purchased meat grinding and vegetable chopping attachments, so it all works out very well.
This is my second Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer. The other one was wonderful too, but when I saw that glass bowl, I fell in love all over again! I like being able to see the mixture and adjusting it if needed so that everything blends together. Beautiful color and the 5Qt. is the perfect size for my family.
I have always had a kitchen aid, and always told my daughter when she gets married I would buy her one. Well now here we are, I have never never ordered anything on the internet my first time was with overstock.com ,and it was very easy and had no problems at all I will be using it alot. Thank you
