I really expected a mixer with scratches even though reading the reviews everyone said how brand new theirs was. Well it's true. Every time I have visitors I show them my mixer and tell them its refurbish and how much I paid at Overstock. com. No one believe me, they say it looks too good to be true. Then I smile and say "but it's not too good to be true"
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It looked better when I opened the box and saw how beautiful it looked.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I have used it twice so far and I love it.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? You hit it on the nail.
This is my second refurbished Kitchenaid mixer and this one is an upgrade from the first. I had the first one 10 years and just gifted it to a very grateful friend. I've used this Pro Series one twice in the few days since I got it and it works just as you would expect from a new one. With the option of an affordable extended warranty there is no reason not to buy refurbished and save loads of money. I am very pleased.

The claim that "every product we sell as Reconditioned or Refurbished must pass a thorough examination" does not seem to be accurate. Before I even removed the mixer from the packing box I could see that the attachment hub cover was not secure. I removed the knob and screwed it in again, but it will not hold the hub cover in place. This isn't enough to make me pack up and send back the mixer, but it is a bit annoying.
The mixer itself is scratch-free and looks new other than this problem. I like the color a lot -- I was afraid that "silver" would be shiny, but it's a nice matte finish. So far I have only used it to beat egg whites and blend them into waffle batter. The lift-up bowl feature is new to me, and will take some getting used to. One disadvantage from the tilt-head model is that you cannot leave the beaters above the bowl to let batter drip down into the bowl. Also, the "tabs" that hook the bowl in place seem to preclude getting other bowls and storing them inside each other -- I'm not sure this mixer offers the option to purchase various sized bowls anyway.
In my quest to replace my 12-year-old KitchenAid Classic mixer, the motor of which burned out the first time I used an attachment (the pasta roller), I initially ordered another slightly more powerful new KitchenAid Classic. The lock to hold the motor head in place while the mixer is operating didn't work, so I sent it back (side note: Overstock.com was great to work with in this process, which is why I ordered from there again). Between those two problems and now this one, I think the KitchenAid brand is simply not what it used to be. I wouldn't pay the $400 -$500 that this mixer would cost brand new; time will tell if the refurbished model was a good choice.
I bought this mixer for my son who just got his first off-base apartment. My family has been in the food service industry for generations and we have always relied on KitchenAid/Hobart equipment. So, I thought this would be a great gift for my son and will probably last him a good long time. He has followed family tradition and loves to cook. This mixer has enough power to mix without the worry of burning the machine up. Now my son can make pasta and bread just like mom! I have purchased many refurbished products and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and value of this KitchenAid purchase; so much so, I actually bought myself the 6 qt a week later.
I have wanted a stand mixer for years. I over analyze decisions like this. I have been all over the web reading reviews. I have a perfectly good hand mixer and couldn't justify the significant investment of a kitchenaid before I found this on O. Let's face it, if I'm going to buy something like this it better last me for 30 years! So, I decided against the Artisan model, even with its array of colors, because I wanted something than wouldn't go out of style and was made of all metal parts too. That's when I settled on the Pro 5. I get a great mixer for a refurbished price. Honest, this this could pass as brand-spanking new.
I've made cookies, ice cream, blue cheese dressing (because I could), and cinnamon rolls. LOVE IT, and don't regret my decision a bit. I hope I don't jinx myself by saying that, but I really see myself doing a lot more homemade stuff in the kitchen because I can do more multi tasking.
Are their other bowls compatible with this, or only kitchenaid bowls??szszsz on Feb 28, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi szszsz, it is possible that other bowls may fit, but KitchenAid bowls are prefered as they are specifically designed for each model. When purchasing additional bowls we recommend to only use KitchenAid bowls and to make sure that they are for your model as there are differences in size and shape.
