"Reburbished" is not what I usually look for when I am buying appliances but Kitchen Aid stand mixers are so costly I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. Having this easy to use, sturdy, mixer on my counter has encouraged me to do a lot more baking from scratch. Breads and cookies are much easier to make at home now. I love the cocoa silver color-- it is not intrusive but has a little style. Controls are self-explainable. Awesome stand mixer...........
I grew up with one of these - my mother has had hers for 15 years! I finally took the plunge and bought my own... The first one that came made a weird grinding noise...sent it back...the second one that came made an even worse noise, and the head (even in locked position) "moved" up and down and side to side while mixing at the higher speeds... sent that back...ANYWAYS...My 3rd one arrived today - it "sounds" right! Finally! It works like my mother's! All I have to say is it's a GREAT product if you can get a fully functional one! I had told myself if this 3rd one didn't work out, I would just ask for a refund, but this one sounds brand new! PLEASE do your DUE DILIGENCE on this! Make a cookie dough or even a bread dough - listen to the motor at high speeds, and going from high speeds down to the lower speeds. If the motor sounds uneven - send it back. I am so glad I finally got one that sounds like it "should!"
I love my KitchenAid Mixer! Made cookies last night and it really saved me a lot of precious time! Awesome product!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Excellent
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Awesome! Did what I wanted it to & more
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Great
Would probably have rated excellent on quality but haven't tested it making bread yet. But with dense and sticky cookie doughs? piece of cake. Refurbished products tend to be even more carefully inspected than regular products and this was the case again here. Good value. excellent product.
