I purchased this mixer for my girlfriend who is a novice baker generally tired of hand mixing cakes, batter, etc. This is a typical product as would be sold in a box store but not high-end by any means. Her excitement to get started baking before Christmas made this into an early gift. Since it was delivered in 2 business days exceptionally well protected I was plesantly suprised. As with most of our counter-top appliances I was intrigued with the look and feel. Sadly it feels cheaper due to its mostly plastic design and is louder than one would image. This is definitely a small mixer when compared to the 5-6 hundred dollar models. The suction cups do hold the unit to the counter based on its weight but keep an eye on it as they occaisionally come loose and it begins to move. The plastic release button feels firm but I would recommend placing a small amount of pressure on the top in order to allow the release latch to disengage smoothly. The hinge is not spring loaded so careful manipulation in the open position is required. Although enough for young people learning to bake, probably not ideal for the more experienced ones making large quantities or even certain breads. We tried making ... bread and ended up making the dough by hand. After a few minutes the mixer was struggling to turn. However on more simple recipies like cakes, cornbreads, and breakfast items the mixer performed as expected. The small bowl (3 qt. usable) and plastic mixer head is really what brought down my review. Overall not a bad product for what it is but probably will need to be upgraded to an intermediate or professional level mixer within the next few months.

I bought this mixer almost 2 years ago, and I still LOVE it! The color is gorgeous. It sits out on my counter so I can see it everyday :) I was able to find a rebate on the KitchenAid website and sent in my overstock receipt to receive a free glass bowl too! It works perfectly, no problems at all.

The first go wasn't a big success, but I didn't have the bowl in the freezer over night. Now I did stick the bowl outside in subzero temperatures for 4 hours...which I thought would suffice. I got a recipe online to try out. The ice cream me and a friend made turned out more like a custard than an ice cream. Don't get me wrong it tastes fine frozen, but wasn't what I expected. I think if I would have used a kitchenaid recipe I would have been fine. I also had my mixer on speed 2 instead of stir so I think I botched my first attempted on many levels. I wouldn't recommend it to a friend just yet, but I might after I get a batch to work out! I love all the KitchenAid attachments I own, I can only assume this will be great too.

Only had chance to use mixer once, but performance is far better than other mixers. I went ahead and bought the 2 year replacement warranty from overstock because I didn't want any hiccups.Shipping took a little longer than expected, but hey, it was free. Overall great experience.

I have a red Artisan Kitchen-aid stand mixer and use it pretty regularly and it never fails to work exactly as I expect. I am planning a kitchen remodel and wanted a different color so I ordered the Green Apple. Was delivered in perfect condition. Now, for my beautiful red one, I know a young lady who loves to bake as much as I do and has been working with a hand-mixer (bless her heart) and her dream is to have a red Kitchen-aid mixer. I'll be surprising her this week with my old mixer! I had lost the black knob over the attachment screw and 2 of the rubber feet so I ordered replacements, cleaned her up (didn't need much because I always wiped her down and dried her before putting her to bed) and she's ready to bless someone else now! I would like to say one other thing about Kitchen-aid. If you had one and had problems you probably just got that one-in-a-million lemon. This is a very reliable product. Please don't let one negative review discourage you from buying. No one is 100% and certainly more people are pleased with this mixer than not.

I love the 4 1/2 qt bowl size of this mixer and I was surprised and pleased with the "stir" speed, that my older mixer doesn't have. I also love the apple green color. The mixer works effortlessly on mixing cookie, as well as pie dough and I am completely happy with it.

I've wanted a KitchenAid stand mixer for YEARS but just couldn't bring myself to spend the money for "just a mixer." I have had this for about three weeks and have used it more than I ever imagined. I use it 2-3 times per week on everything from cheesecakes to cookie dough to sourdough bread!! The red is beautiful and I feel like it is a beautiful trophy sitting on my counter. The clean up is so easy. Totally worth the investiment.

I bought this for my wife, she had been nagging me for 2 years for it. I finally got it for her and she loves it. I reap the benifits of it too! It has features to get plenty of accessories on it and she loves it. She just added the spill guard and plans to get others too.

After having my 4-1/2 quart Kitchen-Aid for over 20 years, I decided I wanted an upgrade.I shopped around for a great deal and Overstock did not let me down. A great price!! The bowl is hard to get attached to the lift but I'm hoping with a lot of use it'll get easier. My favorite setting is "stir", when you first turn it on. It does not throw flour all over the place, (like my old mixer) starting very slow. I haven't used the shield at all! This model fits perfectly under my cabinets so I can keep it handy on the counter. LOVE my Kitchen-Aid!!

The mixer arrived as scheduled. When I opened it I was to see that it looked brand new, not a scratch on it. I have used the mixer 4 or 5 times now and it worked flawlessly. I made large batch of cannoli filling with it which is very dense and it mixer it completely in about 2 minutes. I also whipped cream with it and that was also a breeze. The price was great, saved at least $140 as compared to a new mixer. Wish I'd gotten it sooner.

With the purchase of KA's mixer, I thought I would also order the accessories in case we need them. So far, I've used the juicer for a box of oranges we had laying around; and also to make lemonade. Likes: 1) Plastic seems durable. 2) Works Dislikes: 1) Plastic - thought food grade, it would be even BETTER if parts were stainless steel and not plastic, but that would also mean an increase in price if they made steel parts 2) Installation is easy, but because there is no snap lock, you can't be sure you have it installed correctly. The first time I went to juice, I didn't have any issues. The 2nd, time, when I did a longer juicing session, I hear random squeals, which I thought was because of the pressure I applied while juicing. However, that was just one factor. Something was misaligned and the squealing sound I heard was actually the rod grinding with another part. It produced a residue that leached into my juicing. Fortunately, I saw it before it discharged into my vat, so I removed it before it could do any damage. Lesson here is to make sure you align the rod correctly...that leaves room for error. It would be best if the parts 'snapped' into place so you know for sure it's in proper position before use. 3) When juicing you have to apply lateral force to the orange or lemon. That can be very tiring when you have lots of orange halves to go through. It would be a better design to have some sort of lever to allow you to just hold a lever against the spinning juicer. 4) Because of #3, you have to also have one hand on the mixer while, with the other hand, you have to push the orange/lemon on the juicing element. Can be tough on your wrists and hands with larger juicing sessions. I've not tried the sausage attachment to review it.

I have been looking at purchasing one of the KitchenAid mixers for sometime now and when I saw this one I jumped on it. The mixer has the same size motor as the Pro600 model, but the bowl is 1/2 quart less. The mixer comes with the bowl scraper paddle which is a nice plus. The lower price of this mixer more than offsets the smaller bowl. We used this mixer for Thanksgiving baking and cooking and couldn't be more happy. It has also made a couple pizza crusts that were excellent. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.

Love this item. Originally purchased to relieve my sore arm while making cookies. Warning...this device will blow your diet...why make one batch of cookies in 90 seconds when you can make 2 batches at the same time! Wonderful time saver and arm saver.

This stand-mixer was designed in good old fashion way. I've tested it making bread which causes a lot of mechanical forces. The frame of this stand was not bending like at the device I was using before. I made also beaten egg whites using only two eggs. The electronic inside was designed very secure and safe: If the device is in switched on position and you plug in the connector - the machine will not start. You must put the switch in off position and then on again to start the mixer. It works in my country, where we have 230 Volts @ 50Hz. I use a 1000 Watts transformer to get the 115V for this device. There is only one little strage behavior, which is not really a problem: on speed position 2 the motor is not running very constant buts it is working without any problem. I suppose this is because of the lower 50Hz in austria, in the US you have 60Hz.

I have always loved how the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixers look, and I have heard rave reviews from everyone I know who has one, but I just couldn't afford to shell out $299 for a kitchen appliance that I wasn't sure if I'd use. I decided to go with the factory refurbished one because it has a 6 month Kitchen Aid warranty, plus we purchased the Overstock 2-year replacement plan. And even with shipping, I still saved over $100! It came 5 days later, and it was in perfect condition. I used it for the first time to make mashed potatoes, and it is the easiest machine to use!!! It makes cooking so enjoyable. And cleanup is a breeze!! I thought it would be a pain, but no! It's so simple. Totally would recommend this product to ANYONE who wants to enjoy cooking just a little more.

I'm not sure how much it will hold when I bake bread..2 loafs or what but it does 1 loaf really well. Saves my poor worn out hands..

I purchased 2 of these mixers, one from Kohls and one from Overstock, both in different colors....I actually found the one on overstock to be a lower price due to being "refurbished"...which means brand new! they are built like Mercedes and will outlive you. the one from Overstock arrived first and I liked the color (tangerine) goes well with my kitchen back splash. the other from Kohls was blue and kinda looked like a drilling device that you have in your garage on your work bench..lol, so I returned that one.

My wife and I had debated which Kitchenaid color to buy, as colors seen on a computer screen don't always reflect reality. We were looking for something in the gray family. Our trips to various stores weren't much help for several reasons: (1) limited colors on display, (2) mixers displayed where the salesperson couldn't identify the exact color on display, and (3) we found some colors that were no longer on the Kitchenaid website as current colors. The metallic series Artisan mixer we found on Overstock in brushed nickel was exactly what we were looking for, and was*** cheaper than any metallic series Artisan mixer we had seen. After the mail-in rebate, the price was ***. Slightly less than we would have paid for a regular color on sale at ***, etc. The picture on the Overstock website were an exact match to how the mixer looked on our counter. My wife hates to buy to buy things unseen from the Internet, but this time she was extremely pleased with the decision.

I've had kitchen mixers before and I'll always have one. This is a very good model with plenty of mixing room and sturdy metal attachments. This has a better design for a splash guard than my previous 2 piece splash guard.
What exactly can you use a food processor for? It can be confusing to know what you're supposed to do with all the different attachments. It seems simpler to just keep using your old blender to do whatever it is a food processor does. A food processor is so much more than just a mixer. When you use your food processor, you'll save time, kitchen space and dishes. Another perk to these food processors is the wide variety of colors and finishes available. Not only will you create amazing food; you'll also get the option of matching your food processor to your picture perfect kitchen. It may seem a bit intimidating at first to have so many options, but once you get to know your food processor, you'll find that it is more than just a vegetable chopper. Don't let your uncertainty keep you from investing in a quality food processor for your kitchen.
