Excited!~just ordered the 5 quart Artisan tilt-head Kitchen Aide Stand mixer Sparkling Toffee color for my niece as a Bridal Shower Gift. Haven't even finished processing it to ship I imagine. I have had mine for almost yrs..and am a loyal Baker & Cook.. Everyday home cooked meals. Was raised in old fashion Polish father German mother. So daddy could Cook, Momma was the Baker..best of both worlds. Large catholic upbringing 6 of us kids to feed plus all our friends. They unfortunately did everything by hand. But not this Girl...oh no! Once I got into high school and used my 1st Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer.. That's all I ever dreamed of owning..after 25 yrs of marriage I was finally in a position to own one..and have used this bad baby almost 20 yrs. NEVER a problem. Never.. So I've been Sparing my Loved ones who love to cook as I do. my youngest, one of my other nieces, & now this niece..so far all 3 that have been being used are perfect..so we have High Hopes for this one as well. My next purchase will be for my oldest daughter she wants thee most expensive one you have That Copper Shiney one.. and it's gonna happen for her too, just as soon as she stabilizes and is in a home for over a yr. cause I told her not buying her one to let it sit in a storage unit.. These machines are bought to be used. I expect to be purchasing quite a few more after all I am a grandmother too now of 6. Who I have taught them all the love of cooking & how to respect a Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer. just can't see them having to wait like I had too! was pure torture. 25 yrs of dreaming.. now I'm the guess you could say 'Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer God-Mother'.
