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.

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.

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.
This is not your mother's kitchen mixer. Expect it to be a little hard to get used to and expect 575 watts to make a noise. If you want a heavy duty, durable mixer that is ready for big jobs - this is it.
I absolutely love my kitchenaid. It came on time and there were no scratches on my refurbished model... I was ecstatic!
The only thing I was disappointed about was that there was no warning that I needed a step down transformer to operate an american product in Australia (I was just going to buy a travel adaptor to use it but I was extremely lucky a work colleague told me otherwise this would have blown the motor of the kitchenaid or the fuse, or both as this kitchenaid works on half the voltage). So I had to wait for a stepdown transformer to be delivered before I could start using it.... and yes... the transformer is a big unit (make sure you find the right one based on voltage and wattage as these are all different based on different appliances and models)!
It would be great if there was a warning on your site, or even better, the opportunity to purchase the step down transformer at the same time so that they come at the same time with less hassle, less risk of a fuse or motor blowing and less waiting to start cooking with the kitchenaid.
Apart for this callout I have had no issues at all with my kitchenaid and I haven't stopped baking! I have whipped up my best meringue to date with it and it is pumping out the lightest cookies... love love LOVE IT!
