Every part of the mixer was delivered in tact and on time. I have lots of fun using this mixer. Cooking is not my forte, but when I do have the occasion, I am thrilled. what a time saver. Although the mixer was "refurbished", it looked and worked like new. Now, I know why people want them so much.
After reading many reviews and determining that a KitchenAid stand mixer was the one I wanted, I began searching for the right style at the right price. I found the perfect mixer in the perfect color on Overstock. It is a refurbished machine -- I have never had a problem with refurbished items -- and it is just perfect. It has become the anchor of my kitchen. Unlike a similar mixer which I had used in the past, this one has a head which lifts up out of the way when necessary, a nice bowl which is easily locked in or taken out of the mixer and the slow speed is slow enough to mix flour with wet ingredients without ending up all over the kitchen.
