I am in my fifties and a pretty decent cook. I always thought I could make anything with my two stand mixers, one Sunbeam and one Oster, that anyone else could make in any other stand mixer. About two months ago I decided I wanted to try the KitchenAid. I bought the empire red professional 600 after talking to several owners of the same model. They all just raved about cookies to meatloaf being easy to make with this mixer. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG? Now I am becoming a pro at making meringue cookies, which just never turned out before. They are a snap with this mixer. I am so glad I spent the extra money to get the larger metal bowl and attatchments. I gave away my other two stand mixers and this beauty now stays on the counter. I will be looking for a cover for it soon.

Mixer was extremely noisy "out of the box". The more we used it, the noisier it got, finally sounded like it had a broken gear, and forced gear lube out of the mixer head and into the grinder attachment. Kitchen aid has agreed to replace it, we'll see what happens.
This was purchased for a professional cake decorator and pastry/cookie maker. I am an electronics and nuclear engineer and can say for a small appliance I am impressed with these machines. There isnt much I would change and we are happy with the mixer, it's already seen a lot of heavy work and hopefully will for years to come. To make things even better getting parts will always be easy if and when anything ever does fail. In my opinion finding a deal on the professional 600 with the 575watt motor is worth the money, I mean we purchased this for around the msrp of the classic 250w model, cant go wrong.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Kitchenaid gets 5 stars overall and this is their 575W mixer, never had any problems with them.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? close, but not exact. The mixer didnt come with the splash shield as said, but it also didnt come with the correct attachments, we received the painted/coated hook and mixer but that's ok because these are dishwasher safe and the ones that normally come with the pro 600 are not.
Love this item. Originally purchased to relieve my sore arm while making cookies. Warning...this device will blow your diet...why make one batch of cookies in 90 seconds when you can make 2 batches at the same time! Wonderful time saver and arm saver.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Beautiful red color
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Stands up to the KitchenAid name. Seems to be well constructed and heavy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Met all the details of the descripion.
I bought this for my daughter for her birthday. She said she doesn't need another birthday present for at least 10 years, she is so happy with it. My KitchenAid mixer is really old, but is still in perfect working condition. I kind of wish something would quit working on it so I could justify getting a new one for me.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfectly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. KitchenAid is always Top Quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Totally accurate
We used this mixer during the Christmas holidays and it worked perfectly. It is very powerful and easy to clean. We have always used a hand mixer prior to this purchase and we did not realize how nice it is just to turn a mixer on and let it do the work while we completed other tasks at hand in the kitchen. It is truly a time saver. We also made a thick and doughy apple cake and it mixed it without any problems...mashed potatoes are like mixing hot butter...pumpkin pie was snap too. There was not a scratch or any other blemish on the mixer that we could see. All in all, I feel like it was a good purchase that our family will used for years to come, Lord willing.
I used it just to knead and to whip, till now. In both activities I had excellent results, bread, pizza, cakes were all perfectly mixed and well done.
It faces its job with energy and stability.
It is very good looking and it is not too big for this capacity.
The only point to be improved is noise.
I plan to buy accessories to use other available functions of this great machine.
