Rated 5 out of 5 by Sublbjn Solid mixer, runs smooth
Great mixer. Stands the test of time, never lets you down. Mixes right through hard foods such as cookie dough. Easy to clean and many different attachments are available. We have the food grinder for ours. Love making salsa with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt Unbelievable Quality
My wife had been asking for a KitchenAid for two years now. After doing a fair amount of research and reading dozens of reviews (I like to buy quality and timeless items that will last forever) we decided to take the plunge and buy one. I was worried that most of what I had read was hype and that the mixer wouldn't live up to its reputation, but I can assure you that it has met and exceeded our expectations so far. The mixer is absolutely rock solid. It's built like a tank and has high quality metal components that seem like they're nearly indestructible. Yes the mixer is heavy, but that weight helps it to stay stable on the counter and not move around while in use. The controls couldn't be simpler, and using the aftermarket attachments couldn't be easier. I expect that this mixer will last a LONG time. Quite honestly I don't see how you can beat it for home use. It's capabilities will probably meet and exceed the needs of 99.9% of home users. Getting a high quality, American made, and great looking appliance for this price is an absolute steal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brenda the baker I have two of these
I am a baker and my kitchenaid mixer makes my job so much easier. I had an older version that I have used over 10 years and when my husband and I separated I had to have one as I was lost without the one I let my husband have. I love the plastic guide for adding ingredients which my older version didn't have. The only complaint is that it is very heavy so I keep it on my counter so I don't have to lift it. I would definitely recommend it to those who bake. So nice to have your hands free while mixer is going. Cheesecake is a cinch. Just turn on mixer and let it go. Same with cookies and kneading bread. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ms. B Works great!
I bought 2 of these Kitchen Aid mixers for my high school cooking classroom. It works extremely well. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars is because I felt like the motor was getting hot when I used it to knead bread. The bowl also got stuck in place once; I had to have some students figure it out.

Oh I love my new baby. So excited to use her. Made my family's favorite cookie recipe and was such a breeze compared to using my hand mixer. Love cooking now more than ever. Christmas baking will be a cinch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valerie and her Creative Means Should have got one a long time ago!
I used to sell these to customers at a national chain store, so I knew all the features. But I had never gotten one for myself. I figured the little hand mixer I had was good enough. Now I wish I had gotten one a long time ago. The fact that it is freestanding and I don't have to add things with one hand is such an obvious benefit, I don't know why it didn't occur to me before. This mixer is so strong and well-built, and I'm well acquainted with KitchenAid's quality. Plus I know it will never be discontinued in favor of some newer model that makes mine obsolete. (Even if it did, I know this workhorse will keep on keeping on.) So it was a quick way to make my brown sugar, it cleans up so fast and easy (one of the reasons I was dawdling about getting one). Whatever finish is on the beaters, I don't have any trouble cleaning them. Thanks KitchenAid! Sorry I was late.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cookiecakes WoW Loving it
I started selling my baking goods from my house. I all was using my sunbeam mixmaster. But the order got heavy and my old sunbeam mix master couldn't hold up. I bought the Kitchenaid Artisan series. To help speed up mixing time and mix my cake batter better. Wow I fall in love on the first time I use it. It was powerful and faster then my old mixer. It even cut down how many time I had to stop and scrape the side of the bowl. The Kitchenaid accessories the beater that scrapes the side of the bowl helping you to mix evenly. The dough hook mix heavy bread dough and cookie dough great and the wire whip give my eggs the extra whip it needed. The pouring shield saved my clean up time. If you ever made your own icing or frosting you know that powder sugar and coco powder will fly all over your kitchen if you don't pour is slowly in the mixer. The pouring shield help me forget about pouring the powder sugar and coco in slow and give my easy way to pour my ingredients. I am totally in love with my kitchenaid Artisan series. Thank you
