I was so happy when I received my mixer I scheduled a night in with a friend to bake cupcakes. Unfortunately, the mixer would not even turn on. After 4 hours on the phone with kitchenaid customer service, and another 30 min chatting with Overstock we decided it was DEAD! Overstock emailed me a shipping label, I drove it to a shipping center, and now am waiting 60-90 days for my refund....waiting....When I talked to the Overstock.com representative she said "well....it's refurbished....that's one of the "things" when you buy refurbished." What things???? Grrrrrr....
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Did not even turn on!

I read mixed reviews on purchasing a 'refurbished' machine, both good and bad experiences. However, I have a brother who worked on refurbish machines at his company and he assured me that many times the refurbished machines are brand spanking new because customers changed their minds after making the purchase. This happens for many reasons, but sometimes it's buyer remorse, especially on higher price tag items. With his insight, I took the dive and made the purchase for my wife over Christmas.
The mixer comes in a 'refurbished' packaging and the model number also reflects it's state. However, the actual product looks indistinguishable with the new. It does not come with the splash guard, but it does come with the whisk, dough hoke and the other third one (I forget the name) that looks like a skeleton of a spade. Some may like the open head model of the lower end KA Artisan series, but I find no problems with the lift method. The mixing attachment can be easily removed along with the bowl so that you can remove and clear any batter off the attachment before you proceed with your prep work. It's a heavy unit, so make sure you have a home for it.
Right after I made this purchase, we learned from a family member that they bought a brand new machine at COSTCO for the same price I bought my refurbished model. At first this made me confused as to why a refurbished machine would cost the same as a brand new unit at Costco, but upon further investigation, I discovered that they are actually very different. The series I bought was an KA Mixer 600 Pro. The COSTCO units are model 6000HD. The two modes look almost indistinguishable on the outside, but they are completely different in the following ways. The 600 Pro has an AC motor; and the 6000HD is a DC motor. I don't have an electrical engineering degree to tell you the pros/cons of the two motor types, but I can judge from the pricing that a DC motor is cheaper to include in the units. Now, as for as it's life, I do not know how long a DC motor lasts 'vs a AC motor and which is better to handle load, but I can say that all reviews you hear about mixers that have a working life of many, many decades are almost always all AC motors. I wield Occam's Razor to then trust an AC motor solution since it's 'proven'. It's up to you to subscribe to my simplistic valuation, but that's how I went about it. I also see other differences in the bowl shape and well as the fact that the 6000HD does not have a splash guard solution. That is important if you were to need to mix things that are more viscous.
My wife would have been fine if I had bought her a hand-held solution, but I believe a happy life is a happy life and I do not want her cooking pleasure to be met with injuries later on in life. She bakes because she loves the family and so I want to make the endeavor as easy on her joints and muscles as possible. I hope this mixer last us a life time and that we can pass it on to one of our kids.
I would highly recommend you buy this item. The worst that could happen is that the item comes to you non-working, in which case, you can just return for another. I'm sure eventually you will get one that is in as pristine condition as ours. The best thing is that you will end up dishing out a smaller sum than a 'new' labeled machine.
I love it! This is the second Kitchen Aid appliance that I bought refurbished at Overstock. Both are perfect. This mixer looks previously used, but it only has very few scratches inside the bowl, everything else is perfect. The product itself is amazing, very powerful and quite. I never had anything like this machine. I m so happy with my purchase. The price? Wow I believe it was at least 40% less than a new one!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was exactly as shown in the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The product quality is excellent.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate description
I love it! It's great! I have an Artisan KitchenAid, which is also great, but this 6 qt is terrific! I can fit so much more into the bowl. The flat beater did start rubbing off black stuff after I washed it a couple times. Not sure what it was, but I just scrubbed it off until no more black stuff came off. Haven't had any issues with it since!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Just what I expected

I was very much looking forward to this machine based on the Kitchen Aid from my childhood kitchen in the 80's. I bought the K.A. primarily for kneading doughs because I was tired of spending the time kneading by hand when I could pay more attention to my kids. I love kneading by hand, but I wanted to save time when I'm in a rush or my attention is required elsewhere. I was never able to use the machine to get the dough elastic enough to pull a window before my kitchen began to smell of smoke and the machine was always "whiny" easy to overheat and overall always struggling and powerless. I was always careful to never overload with too much flour. The kitchen aid did a fine job for cookies and lighter mixures, but then when they required a longer mix the machine still got hot FAST. For the money, NOT WORTH IT.
Overstock was great with the return and now I'm putting my money into a better and different machine that will do the job.
This is my second machine and I just love it. My first one was a gift so I purchased this one for me, I love KitchenAid products. The beauty and they are durable makes it easy to to recommend this product.
This mixer made my cookies in a snap. I also made whipped fresh mash potatoes into VERy VERY creamy whipped potatoes! This mixer has a very powerful motor and can take on the challenge! When i did wash the attachment in the dishwasher it changed to a strange dark gray color?
Best price around. Did a lot of research. Was a little concerned about the term "refurbished" but looks and works like new. Very smart looking. Heavy so plan on leaving out. Would be difficult to have to take it out and put it away, especially when it gets used as much as mine is. Shipping was quick. I find reviews are always helpful for me to make an informed decision so hopefully this will help others :-)

My mixer has not been working right the last month or so, it's making clicking noises when turned on and seems to be struggling to mix even just cream. It hasn't even been a year since I've had it and have really only used it maybe 10-12 times. Is the mixer still covered under warranty for repair or replacement? Thank you for your help. on Jun 26, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
We are very sorry to hear that. This mixer came with a 180 day Manufacturer Warranty coverage. If it has exceeded that timeframe, then the item could not be repaired. Please contact our Customer Care directly for further assistance. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 2, 2012
