I've been baking a long time. My first pro mixer was an old Hobart I used at my bakery. At home over the years it was a Sunbeam Heritage. And now, FINALLY I have my Empire Red Kitchen Aid mixer!
I was going to go for the pro lift bowl, but opted for the Artisan tilt head mixer. I am glad I did. I find it much easier to use and change attachments.
Best part??? The price!!! Unbelievable great deal. Refurbished model, but arrived boxed by KA and shiny as a brand new penny! No one would know it was refurbished!
Thank you Overstock!
I was so excited to receive this item as i have always wanted an Kitchenaid Artisan mixer. Being in the uk i expected delivery to takes ages, but it arrived in around 10 working days!
You would think the mixer was brand new, you cant even tell its a refurbished model apart from one tiny scuff on the side.
As UK voltage is not the same as US i have to use my mixer with a 500watt step down converter, i was worried that doing so would affect how fast the machine would work and also cause it to over heat, but i have used it on a few occasions on the highest speed and had no probelms at all.
UK byers should definitely make sure they buy the correct converter before use though!!
All in all a great product and great service, i would definitely buy it and use overstock again!

The Mixer looks and works great! There are no problems thus far and it's as if it is a new appliance. Was very excited to receive it. A couple of things, though:
1.) The metal attachments, when they were first out of the box, left a black residue on my hands. I don't know if this is a polish that hadn't been fully removed, or some kind of protective coating that, again, hadn't been fully removed, but it was a bit alarming.
2.) The box the item came in made it VERY obvious that it was a Kitchen Aid Mixer. I live in an apartment building and it is custom (and usually there are no problems...) for the delivery person to leave it outside of my door. Well, the box sat there for three days with a giant picture of the mixer and KITCHEN AID MIXER printed all over the sides of the box! These items are expensive and anyone could've seen what it was a taken it. Thankfully that didn't happen. I know this isn't necessarily a problem with the item, but it was a bit shocking and I figured people would like to know (especially if they live in a neighborhood/building where theft could be a problem).
Otherwise, I love using my mixer. It's beautiful, looks brand new, and I love the warranty attached to it! Thanks again!
Just redid my kitchen in retro style - white with a few red accents and red linoleum. I've been jonesing for this red mixer forever, and finally found it at a price I could afford. Great bargain, came with manual, too, and in a good solid original box. A+++
The item arrived on time in good condition. It works great. I love it.
It looks so outstanding in my kitchen with red color.
It would be perfect if it came with the mixing bowl cover tray that you can put the ingredients from there.
I thought I was ordering a KitchenAid Professional 5 quart. This mixer is a little smaller and fits in my 5th wheel much nicer. I used it to make pumpkin bread to test it out. Works great. I really like the red color. Adds a little panash to my small kitchen
I'm a super huge fan of the KitchenAid Stand Mixer... have owned one for Years...As a Personal Chef, I use it almost daily!
I lost my home to a fire a few months ago, and have been Lost without it all this time, and well, I finally got around to being able to buy another; shopped around; saw this outstanding price for the color and type of mixer I wanted and it was too hard to resist. The "refurbished" part scared me, and I read the reviews, all sounding good enough to proceed.
I got the dud! :-(
Return was super easy!! Average process; They email you you the return label, you send it back, and wait 5-10 days for your money.
Unfortunately, I had to go out and buy another, unfurbished, as I had already promised homemade rolls for a party this weekend.
