      Pro 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift: Onyx Black Stand Mixer Review – OUTSTANDING BUY! SPECIFIC COMMENTS: How did my Onyx Black RKP26M1XOB refurb (KP26M1XOB) look when it came out of the box? It was pristine! There was no dent, ding, bang, paint smudge, oil leak, or anything that even looked like another person had first bought and returned it. The 3 enclosed attachments with this 600 Pro are: the Burnished Paddle/ Beater, the Burnished Dough Hook, and the Stainless Steel Wire Whip. Note that web searches discussed the advantages of having the coated paddle and dough hook because the burnished metal versions all shed metal bits into food batter, while the coating allows for dishwasher use. Luckily, there have been no problems with the stainless steel metal whip. The “stainless steel” bowl made in India, however, flaked bits. I solved this quality issue by cleaning the bowl interior with sodium bicarbonate and apple cider vinegar; I may also do this to the 2 burnished attachments (or use fine steel wool). While the sound level is louder than that of my Artisan because of its size and all-metal gears, it still purrs! This is one of my best buys! I registered this unit directly on the KitchenAid Site, located under the ‘Service and Support’ tab (under the regular [no-refurb]) model, KP26M1XOB, after taking digital photos of my mixer from all angles, including those under the front bowl base. (Have another person carefully slide the mixer front bowl base 1/3 way off of the counter, while steadying it strongly on the counter with their other hand, so that you can take pictures). This area has the refurb number and the serial number, all of which can be accessed if I need to have my unit serviced and want to send photos beforehand to authenticate my purchase. Note that the enclosed ‘Warranty’ folded sheet (which I didn’t send in) also has these 2 numbers at the bottom of the front page. Also note that the KitchenAid site, under the ‘Service and Support’ tab has a plethora of free manual downloads for all stand mixers. For the KP26M1XOB, I found that the previous manual (2010) included recipes, while the current 2016 manual does not. I’ve printed out this previous 88-page recipe manual and placed all pages in plastic sleeves to be water/ dust-proof: https://www.kitchenaid.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%209708307.pdf KitchenAid also has some ‘Troubleshooting’ pages, that are well-hidden but very informative: http://producthelp.kitchenaid.com/Troubleshooting?startid=4618 & http://www.kitchenaid.com/customer-service/ . TO REFURB OR NOT TO REFURB: I did a web search and found this Pro 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift unit sold as both ‘brand new’ and as a ‘refurb’, by several online resellers. The two online KitchenAid online refurb resellers that I found differ in terms of the quality of the items that they sell to buyers. Note that it is a bit frightening to buy any major-purchase appliance, even one with a standard warranty, let alone venture into the world of ‘refurbs’ without personally seeing and examining one before deciding to purchase it. Refurbs also have short, limited warranties. Luckily, there is a huge community of online buyers who rate their experiences to help prospective buyers know what to expect when we buy a product from a company. I thank everyone who takes the time to do this because it helped me ultimately decide which company would win my business. My review here is to help future buyers in our online KitchenAid stand mixer communities. The 2 companies that I found that offered good deals for refurbs were: Amazon and Overstock. Amazon buyer reviews repeatedly mentioned that their units had dents, dings, and signs of previous use. Overstock, on the other hand, was the company that I bought from because it has very few buyers mention receiving anything but a brand-new-looking unit when it is delivered. Overstock also gave me a discount coupon and free shipping to lower the price even more. (Note: This is my 2nd Overstock KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Several months ago, I bought my Artisan, RRK150WH, which like this Pro 600, is pristine! Overstock carries outstanding KitchenAid merchandise, and people need to know that they can buy quality merchandise by buying Overstock KitchenAid stand mixers.) Buying a KitchenAid stand mixer is a sizeable investment, so doing multiple online searches for reviews and videos as well as talking to family and friends about their experiences using them is an important part of deciding to purchase one. Also, luckily, older KitchenAid stand mixers have the same Attachment Hub, allowing all owners to purchase the newer accessories that current first-time owners like me can also buy. In short, whenever anyone decides to buy a KitchenAid stand mixer, he/ she can still have the same operational experiences as the rest of the already-established KitchenAid buyer community. It is important to note that most brands phase out their older models by putting newer bells and whistles on their units, so that buyers need to continually update and buy the newer models again and again. By doing this, companies can sell ever more products. KitchenAid products are much more stable in terms of new model rollouts and are often passed down from generation to generation, which told me that I was buying a well-made product that would last me for decades. (Note that this brand is also sold abroad. My mother-in-law bought her KitchenAid stand mixer in Kuwait in the late 1980s/ early 1990s, with all of the attachments available at that time. Every KitchenAid piece is still in great condition, and it is all in use today. Because my husband saw his mom constantly using her KitchenAid stand mixer, he was thrilled that I wanted to buy one, too; he was already familiar with it and what it could do!) SUMMARY: I am thrilled with BOTH of my Overstock KitchenAid stand mixers (and the attachments that I bought for each one of them, which I will discuss in separate reviews).

    • Why did I wait so long?

      I am in my fifties and a pretty decent cook. I always thought I could make anything with my two stand mixers, one Sunbeam and one Oster, that anyone else could make in any other stand mixer. About two months ago I decided I wanted to try the KitchenAid. I bought the empire red professional 600 after talking to several owners of the same model. They all just raved about cookies to meatloaf being easy to make with this mixer. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG? Now I am becoming a pro at making meringue cookies, which just never turned out before. They are a snap with this mixer. I am so glad I spent the extra money to get the larger metal bowl and attatchments. I gave away my other two stand mixers and this beauty now stays on the counter. I will be looking for a cover for it soon.

    • Very happy with this purchase.
      Verified Purchase

      I read mixed reviews on purchasing a 'refurbished' machine, both good and bad experiences. However, I have a brother who worked on refurbish machines at his company and he assured me that many times the refurbished machines are brand spanking new because customers changed their minds after making the purchase. This happens for many reasons, but sometimes it's buyer remorse, especially on higher price tag items. With his insight, I took the dive and made the purchase for my wife over Christmas. The mixer comes in a 'refurbished' packaging and the model number also reflects it's state. However, the actual product looks indistinguishable with the new. It does not come with the splash guard, but it does come with the whisk, dough hoke and the other third one (I forget the name) that looks like a skeleton of a spade. Some may like the open head model of the lower end KA Artisan series, but I find no problems with the lift method. The mixing attachment can be easily removed along with the bowl so that you can remove and clear any batter off the attachment before you proceed with your prep work. It's a heavy unit, so make sure you have a home for it. Right after I made this purchase, we learned from a family member that they bought a brand new machine at COSTCO for the same price I bought my refurbished model. At first this made me confused as to why a refurbished machine would cost the same as a brand new unit at Costco, but upon further investigation, I discovered that they are actually very different. The series I bought was an KA Mixer 600 Pro. The COSTCO units are model 6000HD. The two modes look almost indistinguishable on the outside, but they are completely different in the following ways. The 600 Pro has an AC motor; and the 6000HD is a DC motor. I don't have an electrical engineering degree to tell you the pros/cons of the two motor types, but I can judge from the pricing that a DC motor is cheaper to include in the units. Now, as for as it's life, I do not know how long a DC motor lasts 'vs a AC motor and which is better to handle load, but I can say that all reviews you hear about mixers that have a working life of many, many decades are almost always all AC motors. I wield Occam's Razor to then trust an AC motor solution since it's 'proven'. It's up to you to subscribe to my simplistic valuation, but that's how I went about it. I also see other differences in the bowl shape and well as the fact that the 6000HD does not have a splash guard solution. That is important if you were to need to mix things that are more viscous. My wife would have been fine if I had bought her a hand-held solution, but I believe a happy life is a happy life and I do not want her cooking pleasure to be met with injuries later on in life. She bakes because she loves the family and so I want to make the endeavor as easy on her joints and muscles as possible. I hope this mixer last us a life time and that we can pass it on to one of our kids. I would highly recommend you buy this item. The worst that could happen is that the item comes to you non-working, in which case, you can just return for another. I'm sure eventually you will get one that is in as pristine condition as ours. The best thing is that you will end up dishing out a smaller sum than a 'new' labeled machine.

      For the last 5 year or so, I've been using my grandmother's old mixer, a 4.5 quart ~300 watt tilt model that she probably picked up in the 1950s or '60s. I mostly used it for bread, which is funny because I eat very low carbs, so I rarely get to eat what I bake. My old mixer really struggled with some of the heavy doughs I make, and when it broke a kneading hook on Thanksgiving morning, I knew it was time to look for something a bit more stout. This is what I chose. The good: This is only a little larger than the old mixer, so it fits on my counter in the same place. The extra bowl capacity is great - some of my recipes made doughs that were big enough to try to escape the old mixer, but they stay where they should be in this one. The extra power is great too - the old mixer would get hot after 10 minutes kneading heavy dough, but this one barely gets warm. The included dough hook is much more robust too, and the spiral design does a better job keeping the dough in the bowl. The bad: Access to the bowl is worse, somehow. And tool change is difficult even with the bowl lowered. Oh, and you have to take the tool off before you can remove the bowl. After years of easy access by flipping the head up, these are all irritating. Other: If you read other reviews online, or are familiar with the product line, there are two different motor/drive systems. This uses the AC system which means that you'll hear it slow down and struggle as it catches the dough. It is also, apparently, more reliable and easier to fix than the DC system. That hasn't come up for me - I'm just passing on the information I read when I was researching.

    • Baking like a pro!
      Verified Purchase

      I've wanted a KitchenAid stand mixer forever. Being able to buy a "refurbished" Pro 600 Architect model at a rock bottom price (I saved at least $250) was a dream come true. It was in tip top shape right out of the box. It's not lightweight (30-35 lbs.), and at first I thought it might be too heavy for me to handle all the time, but I quickly found a great spot for it where it doesn't need to be moved. It's beautiful, and it's a workhorse. I whipped up the best egg white peaks I've ever seen in my life, and it made child's play out of whipping up a batch of marshmallows. I haven't tried bread dough yet, but I know it will handle that just as easily. The Pro model comes with metal accessories (dough hook, whip, etc.), has a great bowl lift design, and the bowl is big enough to handle double batches. The description said the product included a pouring shield, and when I notified Overstock that it wasn't included in the box, they quickly reimbursed me for it when they found the part wasn't available. (I was able to buy the part elsewhere). Their service was fast and courteous. I am extremely happy with my purchase; it was a great gift to myself. Having a professional tool now makes my baking fun and easy.

      Option: Empire Red

      I was a little concerned about buying a "refurbished" mixer, but after reading the other reviews, I purchased this large Kitchenaid mixer. I love it! I have put it through it's paces. IE: dough, cake batter, whipped cream, cookies, etc., and it has performed perfectly. Mixer as described, along with attachments. I read where the splatter guard was not included and this was honest and accurate. Can easily get one online for about 20 bucks. I have a kitchenaid artesian mixer, but wanted to upgrade, since the large professional one can handle more dough for bread. I would not hesitate to buy this mixer again and if it had not been for the greatly reduced price, I would have not been able to afford it.

    • Great Mixer, more powerful and faster than Artisan
      Verified Purchase

      We previously had the Artisan mixer that we used for making cookies and other small items. When we started making bread and pasta it seemed to strain the motor since it got hot. The bowl was small once we started trying to make larger batches. This mixer is great. It has 200 watts more and it is a lot more powerful and faster. Mixes dough with no problems and I love the larger bowl. The mixer looked perfect, not a scratch and runs great. Highly recommended.

      Option: Empire Red

      This was purchased for a professional cake decorator and pastry/cookie maker. I am an electronics and nuclear engineer and can say for a small appliance I am impressed with these machines. There isnt much I would change and we are happy with the mixer, it's already seen a lot of heavy work and hopefully will for years to come. To make things even better getting parts will always be easy if and when anything ever does fail. In my opinion finding a deal on the professional 600 with the 575watt motor is worth the money, I mean we purchased this for around the msrp of the classic 250w model, cant go wrong.

      Love this mixer. Use it often with no issues. Use it for bread dough, cookies, and lots of other items. Be careful not to use it on too high of a speed for bread dough. It will burn out the motor.

    • NEVER BUY REFURBISHED!

      I was so happy when I received my mixer I scheduled a night in with a friend to bake cupcakes. Unfortunately, the mixer would not even turn on. After 4 hours on the phone with kitchenaid customer service, and another 30 min chatting with Overstock we decided it was DEAD! Overstock emailed me a shipping label, I drove it to a shipping center, and now am waiting 60-90 days for my refund....waiting....When I talked to the Overstock.com representative she said "well....it's refurbished....that's one of the "things" when you buy refurbished." What things???? Grrrrrr....

      I debated on buying a refurbished kitchenaid for two reasons - quality, and appearance. I was worried there might be knicks or scratches - but it looks brand new. Also, I was shopping at a kitchen supply store and noticed that they sold refurbished kitchenaid mixers as well - the store associate said that he would recommend a refurbished mixer over a new one any day - they are more rigorously tested than a new mixer - and he even said that they NEVER get refurbished mixers returned, but they somewhat regularly get new kitchenaids returned. So far (one month) I've used it a few times and it works great. Really happy with this purchase!

Several months ago, I bought my Artisan, RRK150WH, which like this Pro 600, is pristine! Overstock carries outstanding KitchenAid merchandise, and people need to know that they can buy quality merchandise by buying Overstock KitchenAid stand mixers.) Buying a KitchenAid stand mixer is a sizeable investment, so doing multiple online searches for reviews and videos as well as talking to family and friends about their experiences using them is an important part of deciding to purchase one. Also, luckily, older KitchenAid stand mixers have the same Attachment Hub, allowing all owners to purchase the newer accessories that current first-time owners like me can also buy. In short, whenever anyone decides to buy a KitchenAid stand mixer, he/ she can still have the same operational experiences as the rest of the already-established KitchenAid buyer community. It is important to note that most brands phase out their older models by putting newer bells and whistles on their units, so that buyers need to continually update and buy the newer models again and again. By doing this, companies can sell ever more products. KitchenAid products are much more stable in terms of new model rollouts and are often passed down from generation to generation, which told me that I was buying a well-made product that would last me for decades. (Note that this brand is also sold abroad. My mother-in-law bought her KitchenAid stand mixer in Kuwait in the late 1980s/ early 1990s, with all of the attachments available at that time. Every KitchenAid piece is still in great condition, and it is all in use today. Because my husband saw his mom constantly using her KitchenAid stand mixer, he was thrilled that I wanted to buy one, too; he was already familiar with it and what it could do!) SUMMARY: I am thrilled with BOTH of my Overstock KitchenAid stand mixers (and the attachments that I bought for each one of them, which I will discuss in separate reviews).

      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.

      My new KitchenAid replaced one that my mother purchased more than 60 years ago and it was refurbished when Mom got it. I love my new KitchenAid. Thankfully the accessories (slicer/shredder & meat grinder) from my Mother's mixer fit on my new mixer. I have already used it to shred zucchini & grind 55 pounds of turkey meat . Can't wait to find the time to make bread & cookies with my new mixer. My new mixer is bigger & more powerful than my Mother's mixer and hers was a heavy duty mixer. I have only had the mixer a few weeks and so far I am very pleased with it. Will have other chances to use the mixer as the gardening season progresses and I process all the veggies I have grown. Thank you, Overstock, for the great customer service and getting my mixer to me quickly.

      Very nice mixer. Have not used it yet, but have had it run a few times to hopefully show it is in good working condition. We'll be trying it out pretty soon. and it also came with 3 great attachments. The red color we chose to purchase is vibrant and a very attractive color choice for the other items on our work counter.

      Mixer is very loud-almost sounds like it's going to break, but it works well otherwise. It looked brand bew when I opened the box. I love using this mixer and would definitely recommend it.

      Option: Sugar Pearl

      There’s nothing wrong with the mixer, so far, but I purchased it in Suger Pearl.” When the first one came in was excited, opened the box to discover it was SILVER. Called customer service and explained. No problem. They apologized. Set up a return and exchange. The second one arrived today. Box and invoice both say “SUGAR PEARL.” It’s SILVER PEARL. Sugar is white. Everybody knows this. This mixer is SILVER PEARL. NOT SUGAR ( WHITE) PEARL. I wanted this brand and model mixer for my birthday. I wanted it in a pearl white. Looks like I’ll get 1 out of 2 wishes this year. Overstock, please change your color description to more accurately represent this color. It’s “SILVER PEARL.”

      "Are there color options available with a refurbished mixer?"

      • A:

        This is only red but I attached the link below to some others that are not refurbished. https://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Mixers/KitchenAid,/brand,/19120/subcat.html?TID=CO_OP-KITCHENAID-CategoryBanner-1-StandMixersAttachments

    • Q:

      "What is the difference between a classic kitchenaide mixer and the artisan series"

      • A:

        This link will take you to an article written that answers the exact same question you asked. Copy and paste: https://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/shopping/kitchenaid-classic-vs-kitchenaid-artisan-mixer-comparison/ But remember this is specifically speaking about the classic vs the artisan. They are all different in one way or another. I recently purchased the KitchenAid Empire Red 6-quart Pro 600 Stand Mixer (Refurbished) for my daughter from here (the one pictured above) to replace one I had bought her years ago and she absolutely loves it. She does a lot of baking. The one I purchased for her has the "bowl lift design" rather than the tilt back head. It's a matter of preference. Each design has a different size bowl,different speeds, different size motors. Some of the series offer a multitude of colors in pastels and primary colors others offer basic colors. Take you time and do your research but you can't beat the price here. I did have an incident with the first one they delivered but they immediately shipped a replacement - no problem at all and the replacement was exactly what we wanted. Customer service seems very responsive. Good luck - I hope you find the one you want!

    • Q:

      "What is refurbished about this and how?"

      • A:

        Every product we sell as Reconditioned or Refurbished must pass a thorough examination. The original manufacturer or a professional outside firm repairs any defect on a Reconditioned or Refurbished item, returning the product to a like-new or almost-new condition. We sanitize Reconditioned or Refurbished products, if necessary. We check each Reconditioned or Refurbished item twice for proper working condition and quality.

    • Q:

      "Hi does price include VAT? also what is the capacity in liters and what is the guarantee.Thanks.Isabel"

      • A:

        There is no Value Added Tax in the US. If you are talking about sales tax - I live in Florida and no sales tax has been added to any of my purchases. As far as capacity in liters, your should be able to convert quarts to liters. For this model 6 quarts is 5.67812 liters.

    • Q:

      "Does it come in a normal box. I was giving as a gift but if it says refurbished all over it and does not come in the standard kitchen aid box I may rethink "

      • A:

        It is marked REFURBISHED all over the box. It is not in the original box.

    • Q:

      "Does the kitchenaid 6 qt glass bowl combo you also sell work with this mixer?"

      • A:

        Probably not - read the reviews under the kitchenaid 6 qt glass bowl combo they are selling on Overstock. Many said it didn't fit. Call Kitchenaid first with the model number of the mixer you are purchasing and the model number of the glass bowl combo and they will tell you if it will fit or not. *
