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!

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

This refurbished mixer is really actually better than getting a new one. The price reduction is excellent. The fact it was refurbish means the problem the original new one had is taken care of. Don't have to now take a chance on paying full price for new Pro 600 and having problems. I also bought because the additional overstock.com insurance which now extends my warranty up to 3 years instead of 6 months or even when new it's only 1 year. My mixer came looking, sounding and working like new. I would not have known the difference except I was the purchaser.
My mixer came fast and in great condition!!! Looks almost brand new! I could not be happier with my purchase, I tell everyone about my awesome purchase and savings from overstock! If you want a mixer but don't want to pay the full price this is the way to go!! Plus with all the money you save you can buy a couple of attachments for your mixer!!!!
We have wanted a KitchenAid stand mixer for a long time and decided it was time to purchase some serious mixer muscle. We never impulse purchase and we seriously research to help with our choice. When Pro 600 arrived we opened and were very satisfied with mixer condition. I knew it was refurbished but unit looked brand spanking new. We have made bread, pound cake, and burger buns all without any trouble from our mixer. Their is no doubt of the power capabilities of Pro 600. I will and already have recommended the KitchenAid Pro 600 to several friends and family. I greatly appreciate Overstock.com for providing an avenue and awesome pricing on quality products
I have had a Kitchen Aid Mixer for years. I have used it so much that I have worn it out. when this product became available and for the wonderful, amazing price I just had to have it. I have used it only once but it was just as I had expected. I hope to use this one for many years to come.
