I recently purchased this KitchenAid Professional 6-quart Mixer for my wife, (who owns her own Bakery) and she has been looking for a new addition to her mixers for making double batch cakes and cupcakes. She currently has two other KitchenAid mixers and through they work just fine, she has been looking for a more powerful mixer without having to purchase the very large and not easily to move professional mixer. Since I help her from time to time on large projects I knew that this KitchenAid 6 quart Stand Mixer was just what she was looking for to add to her growing small business. So far after a week she has already put it through two big projects, one a 4 tier wedding cake and a birthday order of 76 cupcakes. It works great!!!

This ice cream bowl is great, just like all of the attachments for my Kitchen Aid mixer. I am completely satisfied and would recommend it to a friend. I really like that it takes up so little space compared to my 4 qt ele ice cream maker, and I don't need ice or salt.

Good mixer for the money. I have wanted a stand mixer for years, but never wanted to pay hundreds for a small kitchen appliance. This one does a good job for my purposes, mostly cakes, cookies...etc. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5, is the bowl is tricky to get out without spilling what's inside. Although, I haven't had it long and haven't used it enough to figure that part out.

All i wanted was a mixer that could handle my thickest cookie dough recipe.... It met my expectations at level 4 speed. Awesome!!!

I received this mixer 4 days ago. However, I have used it a lot already and feel I can give an adequate review. I made two double batches of icing, a pound cake, white homemade dough with the dough hook, ice cream mixture with the whip, and creaming the ice cream mixture with the ice cream maker attachment. When making the icing, I did notice that creaming 2 cups of shortening with a few tablespoons of water in this larger bowl took some trial and error. I found on the second batch that if I stir to get it going and then go to speed 2 and then 4 it worked a lot better for mixing as the motor was moving the beater faster. When making the pound cake, I noticed that my mixture was thicker than when I used two other mixtures by other companies. I've always been able to pour my cake batter into the pan, not scoop it out. I had to shake the pans to level out the mixture as it was that thick. However, the cake tasted the same so I'm okay with the change in appearance. I've always made dough with my hands on a wood surface. However, I wanted to see what this mixture would do. My recipe used 8.5 cups of flour and instructed me to add four cups in the mixer. However, I was able to incorporate 6-7 cups as the hook really mixed the ingredients very well. With the dough hook, the highest speed you will use is 2 and this did the job, to my surprise. When I folded the dough on my work surface, it make my kneading job so much easier and faster. I added the other 2+ cups of flour as needed and the dough was fantastic. Also, I used the pouring shield to add my flour on the stir setting and then increased back up to 2nd speed at intervals. This worked great for me and after all flour was incorporated, I removed the shield. I don't think you are supposed to leave it on unless you are using it as it doesn't snap in place but rather sits on the bowl. The best part was I got to use the mixer to make ice cream using the separately purchased ice cream maker attachment. I used the French vanilla ice cream recipe provided in the supplied owner's manual. This was my first time making ice cream and combining hot mixture with cool/room temperature mixture. The instructions were very good and the ice cream taste great. I ate some freshly made and I have yet to taste it frozen. You do have to prepare the ice cream bowl at least 15 hours in advance and you must refrigerate your mixture before you can cream. I made the mixture and froze the bowl the day before use.My only complaint was that the instructions for attaching to the machine are so simple and the diagrams so simplistic that it went completely over my head. I was looking for the piece to snap to the motor head but you just push up and turn it to the angle and when the spinner is attached the two pieces lock. I was expecting it to need more to stay on the mixture. I kept looking for a center hole to slide the unit up. The unit worked just fine as designed and apparently it was me thinking it should attach differently. My comments about the mixture are that I thought the green would be different from what was shown on the site. I thought it was the ugliest appliance I've ever purchased. However, as it sits on the counter the color is growing on me and my husband. I love that the mixture is very easy to clean, just wipe with a damp towel. The mixture is sturdy and blends foods much faster than any mixer I've owned by other companies (this is my first KitchenAid mixer). I don't like that the instructions are not explicit enough on how to place the bowl on the pegs. I just figured it out today and by the next time I use it, it will be another learning curve. Once I figured it out, it made sense but I'd taken that bowl off many times before it became obvious how to attach it. My only other concern is that when I need to scrape the bowl, I have to drop whatever beater/whip/hook is attached; can be annoying sometimes. even though it's easy and quick to do. I definitely recommend you purchase this mixer as I'm a happy cook and new owner of a KitchenAid product.

I did have doubts.... But was more then pleasantly surprised. I needed a strong mixer, without spending $XXX. plus. This whipped through a bowl of Pitzell batter making 4 dz cookies in one shot! It is super quiet. Super simple, and I love the red color. The 300 plus watts, makes all the difference in the world. I would highly recommend.

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 LOVE THIS MIXER! I have been without a stand mixer for 4 years since my 30 year old plastic stand mixer broke. I have been wanting a KitchenAid and while baking last Christmas using a cheap handheld mixer I decided I would shop in earnest for a new KitchenAid. Why did I wait so long??!! I LOVE THIS MIXER! The first thing I made was pizza crust. I usually use my Cuisinart, but the KitchenAid is so much easier to clean! Love it!
