Like others, I was a little hesitant to buy a refurbished product, but the price was so good I decided to give it a try. The mixer arrived in the original box and has worked great. I had other cheaper mixers in the past and there is no comparison. The mixer is VERY heavy, so unless you can leave it out on the counter it will probably not get used. I am delighted with this KitchenAid Artisan Mixer.
I have only used my a few times since Christmas and I just love it. It is a refurbished model so I am cautiously optimistic about the life of the product. Hopefully Overstock will stand by the product if I have any problems in the first year.
I wanted to buy a Kitchenaid for my daughter who has been using one that was my Grandmothers. After 4 generations, it started to show it's age. The price of a new one was out of my budget so I got refurbished. She was just as happy to have it and totally understood not paying $100 extra for the pretty, original box. I bought a 2 year warranty just in case but I have never had any problems with O's refurb items.
If you are looking for a high quality stand mixer, do not hesitate to purchase this product. I have used it and am extremely happy with it. It is quite heavy so make sure that you are able to lift it and move it about.

This is my second Kitchen Aid mixer, purchased for a second home. The first is still in excellent condition after over 25 years of constant use. This new one functions perfectly and looks great. I was a little worried about refurbished product, but am reassured that this is as good as new with a slight blemish, barely visible. Highly recommend this!

The only problem i had was that I needed an step down transformer to be able to use the mixer in UK and this was an expensive item. i don't remember seeing this as a requirement in the original advert. otherwise I was delighted with the service i received from Overstock.com. The item arrived when they said it would, I could keep track of my mixer's progress online, it was well packed and arrived safely. On the whole a positive experience.

I have always wanted a kitchen aid stand mixer, but the hefty price tag stood in my way. This is a refurbished product, but mine arrived looking brand new. It works wonderfully, and with all the money I saved, I got an extended warranty. The color is actually richer than the picture.
