Given the price of this refurbished mixer vs. a brand new one, I don't know why anyone would spend extra for new. The mixer arrived in perfect condition without even the slightest scratch or blemish on it, and it runs perfectly as well. The only thing missing that was listed as being with the unit in the description was the plastic bowl guard. I simply did a bit of searching on line and found one at a very good price and bought it. Another accessory that is really useful is a spatula edge beater, which I also found and purchased on line at a very low price also. The one you will need for this unit is the same as the one for the 6 qt. mixer, fyi. The 6 qt and 5 qt. + bowls are identical except for their depth..Also, make sure it's a genuine Kitchenid beater, as some of the aftermarket units don't fit correctly, put too much drag on the motor, or simply break as some are made of plastic.
