This kitchenaid mixer preforms as good as it looks. Arrived in a sturdy box and was well protected. Mixer worked as it should, at low and high speeds. I was worried at first because it is a refurbished unit but I am very happy with it.
I have been waiting 4 years since I got my house to get a Kitchen Aid mixer, so I finally broke down and bought it myself after many failed attempts of begging for one for the holidays and my birthday. I was not at all hesitant to get a refurbished product, as many of my friends have bought refurbished and never complained once and their mixers have been running strong for over 5 years. I was a little hesitant on the color because I had always seen myself getting a red mixer, but I was late on the good deal and missed out on the red one and that's when I fell upon tis one. I absolutely loved the blue as soon as I pulled it out of the box. I couldn't wait to open it. The mixer has met all my standards and then some. It is SOOOO much easier to have a stand mixer than trying to use those little hand held ones. I cannot wait to try more recipes and broaden my culinary skills and impress my family!
I was worried how this mixer would look being classed as refurbished model however it arrived really quickly and to my amazement like brand new machine not one mark or scratch that would lead you to believe it was a refurbished model! I love it and the color is fabulous and I saved $$$ versus a brand new model!
I have wanted a mixer like this for years and finally got this as an early Christmas gift from my husband. The color is beautiful it works great. I haven't made a lot with it but it is so great, don't hesitate to get one if you have been on the fence. It is well worth the money
For most every day jobs this mixer works fine. I have so far made different cake batters, frosting, cookie dough, and yeast rolls with this mixer. One of the cakes called for whipped egg whites so I have used it for that as well. For every job except the rolls it performs as well as I expected. You do have to stop and scrape down the sides for even mixing but that is a small price for how much easier it is to use a stand mixer versus hand mixer. Unfortunately I have found that this mixer does not do as well with kneading dough. It tends to jump around a lot and gets very noisy. If you make a lot of yeast bread I would go with a higher model. For my needs it works well and I think it was a great deal to get a refurbished model.
