Rated 5 out of 5 by ACANNON99 The best piece of kitchen equipment I own.
This mixer is the best appliance I have ever bought. I use it practically everyday., It handles the biggest jobs I can throw at it - including quadrupling cookie dough recipes for Christmas. I love that you can add attachments to it - and love the sausage stuffer attachment the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baking Mama Love my KitchenAid Mixer!
A kitchen aid mixer has been on my wishlist for many years and finally I got one for my birthday this summer! It's a beautiful yellow color, which adds such a nice pop of color to my kitchen. I was nervous that I wouldn't get as much use out of my mixer as I once would've, since changing our family's diet to Paleo in the spring but I am still finding many excuses to use it! It mixes really nicely. So far I have made muffins, pizza dough, beaten eggs and more. I stop and scrape occasionally to reach the sides and the very bottom of the bowl where the beaters don't reach. I have my eye on some attachments that I hear make this a non-issue. It took me a few tries to figure out how to get the bowl on and off. It is different than the artisan mixer. This bowl snaps on in the back with quite a firm push and you have to pull the bowl up in the front (closest to your body) to unhook it. All in all, I am really happy with my mixer and hoping it lasts for many years to come! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyler the Scientist Been waiting a long time for my first Kitchenaid mixer
I recently purchased my first Kitchenaid Professional 600 Series 6 Quart Mixer. I grew up having one in the house. My mom used a slightly smaller tilt model that she got from her mom to make everything from cookies to mashed potatoes. I always enjoyed watching her use and couldn't wait to have one of my own. After getting married recently, my wife and I decided we really wanted to have a Kitchenaid mixer in our kitchen. We opted for the larger size to give us more options for bigger batches in the future. We love the red color and display our mixer on the countertop. It really pops in our kitchen. I have used the mixer a number of times to make cookie batters. I realized almost instantly how easy the mixer was to use and was relieved to not have to mix the batter by hand. I am looking for a number of new recipes and other ideas to use my mixer. I look forward to making doughs and more desserts in the near future. I am really happy with my purchase and know that it will last me a long time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wolfhound668 Much better than our old (top rated) brand
I bought this stand mixer for my wife's birthday to replace our aging Viking mixer. There were several things about the Viking that had always bothered me. First and foremost was the fact that none of the mixing attachments ever really reached the bottom of the bowl so I would have to stop and scrape the bottom quite often. Also, getting the attachments to click into place was always a chore. Mixing blades would fall out during use and external attachments through the front port never seemed to fit exactly and would be slightly loose. The Kitchenaid doesn't have these issues. We've used it several times in the last couple of weeks, both with mixing attachments and the external pasta maker. Everything feels rock solid and no scraping the bottom of the bowl anymore. The real acid test will come during the holiday season when my wife makes dozens and dozens of cookies over several weekends but I'm not foreseeing any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doug KitchenAid Pro 600 Series 6 Quart mixer
I love these mixers. My mom had one of the small mixers and used it to mix batters and frostings for wedding cakes, etc. She passed away in 1993 after several years with cancer, and my sister gave me the beater. First time I tried to use it, it started smoking. So I retired it and bought a 6-quart KitchenAid to replace it. That's how I know how old my first 6-quart mixer was. So, it lasted from 1993 to 2015. Very good for something with a one-year warranty. About 2012, the power head loosened up a bit -- annoying, but not really a problem. I tightened the bolts, a bit of a trick, and kept using it. Finally in 2015 I replaced that one with this beautiful red mixer. I'm keeping the bowl and beaters from the 1993 mixer so I have a double set. I love the power in this 600 mixer. In 2012, I made a wedding cake for my daughter and son-in-law. He's from the UK, and they wanted fruitcake. This beater did most of the work, but for the last mixings, I had to do it by hand with wooden spoons.

I can't say enough about my KitchenAid Pro 600 lift stand mixer. First of all, the red model that I chose has a sleek modern design that is the perfect height to fit on the counter under my kitchen cabinets. Operating the stand mixer is extremely easy and intuitive. However I do highly recommend reading all instructions to insure safe and proper use of this appliance. I really do prefer this lift stand model, as it makes working in tight spaces easier than using a tilt model. As a commercial baker at Addinnella Baked Goods, I have been extremely pleased with this mixer's performance. It allows me to easily and quickly turn out double batches of cookie dough or even quick breads. Also, it offers many useful attachments. I highly recommend the KitchenAid Pro 600.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Randy DO NOT BUY THIS MIXER - IT HAS A MAJOR FLAW
I bought this mixer and eagerly awaited its arrival. When it did, I decided to celebrate by making some bread. Wow was I disappointed the mixer did not scrape the sides or bottom. I attempted to adjust per instructions in the package and on the internet, but it has very limited adjustments and I was not able to adjust enough to make it work properly. I took it back and tried 2 additional Professional 600 mixers - both had the same problem. I finally tried a KitchenAid 4.5 Quart Tilt Head Mixer. It had the same problem, but it has a lot more flexibility when it comes to adjustments and I was able to adjust it to the proper level. I will try to make bread tomorrow and hopefully it will work much better. One note, I did not try the 600 Series mixer with a metal bowl as I wanted a glass bowl. It may be that the glass bowl for this mixer is not made to the proper specifications. KitchenAid should investigate this issue as it seems to be systemic to the 600 Series with a Glass Bowl.
