As a single dad, I had no idea if I would actually use this mixer, but after seeing it close up, I just knew I had to have one. Though I have a strong affinity for heavy well made tools. I was having problems justifying the price for what might turn into a decorative ornament for my kitchen. Well, when I got the email from Overstock advertising refurbished KA mixers at an amazing price, I just had to take the plunge. After utilizing all available discounts, this baby ended up on my door for $$$including tax and shipping. At first I was hesitant about ordering a refurbished unit but aside from saying "refurbished" on the box, you couldn't tell it from a brand new unit. Anyhow, my worries of having a use for this product quickly diminished as I find myself using it at least once a day. This thing is a time saver and allows me to vastly expand my cooking repertoire. Just throw your ingredients in and let it do it's thing. This thing is so reminiscent of my first microwave oven. Once you have one you wonder how you ever got along without it. By the way, when I told my mother I was buying one, her first concern was cleanup. In using it, I have to say clean up couldn't be easier. Just throw the bowl and the beater in the dishwasher and it comes out spotless. How easy is that? Oh yeah, my 15 year old daughter also loves this thing as she uses it to make cookies and cupcakes from scratch. Unless you enjoy eating ramen everyday, cooking is such a vital life skill. I am so glad my daughter has taken an active interest in learning and I have Overstock and Kitchenaid to thank!
