I had a KitchenAid mixer on my "to buy" list for some time but couldn't justify the nearly $500 they cost at stores. I was extremely happy to find the mixer on overstock.com and I had a coupon! The mixer arrived a week early than I expected and was in perfect condition. If you are a frequent baker this is a must for your kitchen. I love being about to clean up while my dough is being mixed together.
