I debated on buying a refurbished kitchenaid for two reasons - quality, and appearance. I was worried there might be knicks or scratches - but it looks brand new. Also, I was shopping at a kitchen supply store and noticed that they sold refurbished kitchenaid mixers as well - the store associate said that he would recommend a refurbished mixer over a new one any day - they are more rigorously tested than a new mixer - and he even said that they NEVER get refurbished mixers returned, but they somewhat regularly get new kitchenaids returned. So far (one month) I've used it a few times and it works great. Really happy with this purchase!

Plenty of power for heavy batters and bread dough. Heck, if I could find an extension cord long enough, I could ride the thing to work.

I had compared models and prices for Kitchenaid stand mixers for quite awhile, and finally decided on a nickel pearl 600 Professional model. The best deal I could find was from a kitchen chain store that gets refurbished ones in from time to time. The main problem there was that they were almost always either red or white. I decided to take a look at Overstock.com (O.co), and I am so glad I did. The price was better than the kitchen chain store, and even better than what I could find used on ***. And O.co's refurbished mixer came in the exact color I wanted and at a better price and with 180 day warrantee and was shipped fast! Thank you, Overstock, for a wonderful product at an amazing price! (The only mistake I made was not signing up for the Club O rewards. I would have gotten back more on this single purchase than I would have paid for the membership.)

You don't get everything they show... Mine didn't come with the clear plastic "chute" they picture... Also be aware that this stand mixer is TALL.. it is taller than my old one and doesn't fit under the cabinet. It seems to run okay, but smells of machine oil when I use it. Patrick
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? decent

I've not had this mixer for very long, but have already made breads and cakes. this machine works great. The morning after we recieved it I made sweet rolls, It works so quiet and smooth that my wife never woke up from her sleep until the smell of baking rolls wafted up to the bedroom
So it's a KitchenAid stand mixer which obviously has stood the test of time. When I took it out of the box it was for all intent and purpose like new at a significantly lower price. It works as advertised and I am a satisfied customer. Bought the extended warranty for good measure.
Dear Stand Mixer (I think I am going to name you Matilda), Matilda, I know we have not known each other long but in that time, you have shown me the wonders of your workings. Every curve and line beckoning me to glide my fingers across you. Your figure is impeccable and it's almost like you were made by intelligent design. When I put things in you the noise you made was like heaven to my ears. I have longed for your embrace since I was young and now you are mine! My hands are no longer sticky with dough or cramped from over work for they are on you and in you as you move creating delight on my tongue. I feel that we shall have a long and happy life together Matilda. I don't care if you have loved another or that your sisters are far more expensive because I have you and that's all I will ever need (along with all your attachments but I digress). Love, Your New Owner
