I love this mixer. I make a lot of bread and this motor can handle that....My only problem is a little difficulty in getting the bowl on securely. But it works so well and looks beautiful. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't use it. It was delivered faster than I thought and packaged so well. You can't beat shopping at home at your convenience and be able to do a lot of comparisons before spending.
I have been looking at purchasing one of the KitchenAid mixers for sometime now and when I saw this one I jumped on it. The mixer has the same size motor as the Pro600 model, but the bowl is 1/2 quart less. The mixer comes with the bowl scraper paddle which is a nice plus. The lower price of this mixer more than offsets the smaller bowl. We used this mixer for Thanksgiving baking and cooking and couldn't be more happy. It has also made a couple pizza crusts that were excellent. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.
For some time now I have wanted a KitchenAid mixer. This model had the features I wanted and a bowl large enough for all my baking needs. I only wish it had come with the 'pour guard'. However, I think I can purchase one from other sources. Made holiday baking a breeze! Love It!
You expect and always get great quality and features with a Kitchen Aid mixer. The accessories make the work that simpler and more enjoyable. The ease of use allows you to focus more on the quality of your dish or baking and not on how to use the mixer. Clean up is also a breeze.
I flirted with the idea of buying one of these for almost a year until I finally broke down and just bought one. I've had mine for almost 6 months now and I absolutely LOVE it!!! I gave it 4 stars only because I do not like that I can't adjust the head to take the attachments off but it really hasn't been too big of an issue.
