Needed something so that I didn't have to get out my heavy full-size mixer. Cuisinart is a great brand and I love the way it all stores together in one plastic storage box. Not too heavy or too lightweight. Good solid feel. If there is any negative, it would be that I would like the beaters to be a bit more substantial.
I fell in love with the color! I have owned a KitchenAid before....love the tilt head, I had the raised bowl type which I never liked. Just wish they would make a plastic guard for the glass bowl. Highly recommend this mixer!
This mixer is great, and works great. I was bummed that the plastic piece to drop the ingredients into the bowl was not included, and also the beater and dough hook are not kitchen aid pieces. But they work with the device. If you are looking to get one of these mixers for a steal of a deal, then this is the one to get.
When i received the mixer, it looked great. Brand new in fact, even though it was refurbished. It came with a manua. The first time I used it I noticed two things. One, it left my sugar cookie dough with gray streaks. I had read about this, and forgotten that there is some sort of treatment used on the bowl and does this. I had washed it with soap and water before using it. But after the cookies I used lemon juice and sea salt. Scrubbed the heck out of it. Seemed to work. Then, the second time I went to use it, the bowl wouldn't stay locked in. I called the number in the manual for KitchenAid. They said it might be the bowl or the base. They immediately shipped me both. Bowl arrived first, so I swapped it out and problem solved. KitchenAid customer service was so so so easy. Why can't every customer service be that effortless and quick? I love the mixer. It's beautiful! I thought from the picture that the white paddle and dough hook were plastic, but they are metal, painted white. I think my only issue seems to be it's ability to mix thick doughs. I'm not sure if this is normal, as this is my first stand mixer. Maybe I was expecting it to not sound like it was trying so hard. It does mix them, just kind of jars around just a little while it's doing it. Again, might be normal. I got a real good deal on this mixer. Was nervous about it being a refurbished model, but I do love it. And have used it quite a bit for cakes. I wouldn't have been able to afford full price for a new model, so I feel pretty good. And with the exceptional customer serivice of KitchenAid, I wouldn't hesitate to look at any more of thier refurbished appiance deals.
