Couldn't be happier. It's basically brand new. I scoured craigslist and eBay for used versions of this product and considered a few of them for the same or more money. To get a virtually new machine with a 6 month factory warranty for about half the price of new...well you can't beat it. Its a great mixer for what I'm doing (mostly focaccia Genovese and pizza dough). Shipping was speedy too. Unbelievably satisfied.
The mixer is huge! I did read that before hand, but seeing is believing:) Works excellent, love the color, super fast shipping. More mixer than I need, but for the money, you can't go wrong. Refurbished or not, it is hands down a winner, comes with warranty. ❤️it!
This is a great product. When you buy refurbished you don't exactly know how it will turn out. I have looked the unit over and see one tiny scratch that I don't think I would care about even if I did pay full price. I have made several products with this mixer. It does everything so well and I barely go above speed 4. It cleans up very nicely. It doesn't come with the pour shield but thus far I don't see a need just another thing to wash. The warranty. For some reason on this site it says three months but all the paperwork comes with a 6 month version. I plan to work it hard over the Christmas holiday. That will be the true test. It's a bit loud but it's a machine and it's so fast at mixing it's not on for long. I have a vitamix and it's much louder! The colour is beautiful I am so glad I picked it. I would recommend!
I owned a classic mixer for 20 plus years before upgrading to this one. I bake and sell from my kitchen so wanted something bigger. THIS gets the job done! Double and triple batches are a piece of cake for this machine. The color is beautiful and shipping was soooo fast. Out of the box it looked brand new. A few scratches in the bowl was all..big deal. Can't review yet about the longevity, but so far....so good. Hoping it will last like it's predecessor. I trust the Kitchenaid name, and am in love with my Pro 600!
I have used the artisan mixer in the past. My wife bought me the 4.5qt Bowl lift mixer for Christmas, but it didn't come with the whip or dough hook. We gave that mixer to our daughter when she bought me this mixer for my birthday. This mixer is everything you could want for any situation. The 6 qt. bowl is large enough for my biggest meatloaf mix, and the whip makes perfect cake batter. I am very happy with this product.
The first thing that I made with this is a double sourdough. And did a booboo, my dough was to dry and tried to over knead the dough and the mixer just quit. So I waited the 30 to let it cool off and continued. It made the loaves just perfect. now I know that it will not handle a dry double dough. I have also made salads which was really nice because I could put ingredients in the bowl and go and slice some more ingredients and add them when needed. As a executive chef anything that cuts your prep time down is more than worth it. I wish I would have bought one of these many years ago. ( like when I got out of culinary school.)

I have been really wanting one of these KitchenAid mixers for a long time. When I started looking on the website, I was actually looking at the Artisan series, but soon realized that I could get the Pro series for actually less if I bought a refurbished one. When I saw the taupe pearl color in the pro series and the price was actually more than *** less than the new brightly colored Artisan series, I was thrilled. I have been cooking up a storm. It really shortens the prep time for so many recipes.

I've wanted a KitchenAid stand mixer forever. Being able to buy a "refurbished" Pro 600 Architect model at a rock bottom price (I saved at least $250) was a dream come true. It was in tip top shape right out of the box. It's not lightweight (30-35 lbs.), and at first I thought it might be too heavy for me to handle all the time, but I quickly found a great spot for it where it doesn't need to be moved. It's beautiful, and it's a workhorse. I whipped up the best egg white peaks I've ever seen in my life, and it made child's play out of whipping up a batch of marshmallows. I haven't tried bread dough yet, but I know it will handle that just as easily. The Pro model comes with metal accessories (dough hook, whip, etc.), has a great bowl lift design, and the bowl is big enough to handle double batches. The description said the product included a pouring shield, and when I notified Overstock that it wasn't included in the box, they quickly reimbursed me for it when they found the part wasn't available. (I was able to buy the part elsewhere). Their service was fast and courteous. I am extremely happy with my purchase; it was a great gift to myself. Having a professional tool now makes my baking fun and easy.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high quality, all metal parts.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description said pouring shield was included, but did not come with. Overstock reimbursed me for it.
The price for this pro level mixer was beyond excellent. When I received the product, I was expecting some kind of imperfection since it was refurbished but it was just like new for half the price. The pouring shield was missing but when I contacted Overstock's customer service, they were very professional in dealing with the issue. The parts department didn't have the part, so a partial refund was given to me that more than covered the cost with shipping of the missing part. Overstock not only stepped up to the plate--they knocked the ball out of the park!
