I am pleased to say that the shipment was quick. I love the color and look of my kitchenaid. It works okay to me. But im not sure if its supposed to make a weird sound. I know its refurbished but oh well I just wondered. Whenever I make a dough. I literally have to hold the top down because it shakes and it has a cracking sound. I never had a kitcheaid mixer before and I cant afford a brand new one. I just really have to deal with what I have.
It's refurbished and works perfectly, and I know that somebody has gone over it with a fine-toothed comb to make sure. It was purchased for what I consider a great price to replace a big old 30-year old KitchenAid that just gave up the ghost last Christmas. I hope this one will work half as long, but it's already shown just how good it is. And the pistachio color is just what I needed in my kitchen. A great purchase.
I purchased this stand mixer as a thank-you gift for a very kind friend who has helped me through an extended recovery from surgery. She reports that she's delighted with the mixer, and she frequently brings me samples of dishes she's made using it. She did say that the color is more "celadon" than "pistachio," but that she's very pleased with the choice.
I have always wanted one but couldn't bring myself to pay the price. The pistachio color coordinatef well with my backsplash. It works very well and is in absolutely perfect, brand new condition. I believe these refurb mixers may have been returned merely for issues like color not being exactly what someone wanted or perhaps wedding gift duplication. I couldn't be happier with mine. I used a coupon and got it for less than $200.00
