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 Bik What a great stand mixer.
It was one of my wife's expectation of baking toys. As she urged me to buy her this, I tried once with initially not sure about the quality as well as features. However, after a week tried it in my kitchen, my wife. completed bread, cake, tiramitsu, cream cake... with pleasure as she shared with me. It running well with almost 1 kg of powder with hook tool at 2nd speed, the noise level is acceptable. After about 25 minutes of working, the motor case were not so hot, just warmed. It is easy to install / uninstall the bowl with firmly when attached. The material of the bowl and tools are good. It was in my home not so long as about two weeks, so l will have to wait for more time to see its durability, but, at a glance, it will working well due to its quality structure as well as design. Hence, my first doubt about is wiped out. It met my wife's expectation for powder prepared for her bread making. Did l score in my wife's eyes ? Conclusion: Highly recommended for housewives who loves cooking. I will recommended it to my friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Okie cookie queen It's a mixing beast!
I had one of the older industrial pro mixers and when it died I was pretty shaken up. I'd had it for over 15 years and I was convinced anything new couldn't compete. My husband bought me this one and he told me that it's bigger and better in every way. Well, after 6 weeks of use, I can tell you that this thing will double as a cement mixer (I wouldn't do it, but I know it could handle it). I make pizzelle cookies; the dough, which is not like most dough, is more like thick caulk. I've burned the engines of many hand mixer's stirring this dough (5 mixer's gave their lives), but my KitchenAid mixers laughed at that dough, then proceeded to whip it good. The new mixer is even more eager to take on the pizzelle challenge. And so far, I'm thrilled with how it does. It's got a monster motor ready to mix your toughest ingredients. I strongly recommend making the investment in this upgraded model if you are serious about your kitchen work and tools.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ambs Disappointed with Wire Whip, Powerknead, and Flat Beater
I recently purchased this stand mixer as a graduation gift to myself. First and foremost, the stand mixer was greasy, (I don't know if that is normal) when I pulled the lever down to let the bowl down, there was this big log of yellow grease between where it goes up and down (again, I don't know if this is normal. Now what really bothered me is the whip, power knead, and flat beater. Unboxing, none of those tools were shiny, it was already "oxidized" and disgusting gray residue was being left only hand, I did not get a chance to use my mixer yet because I just received it in the mail today. I will not use my mixer with these tools because I am very afraid that it may get into my mixes as it does my hand. This seems very unsanitary and it is just not tolerable AT ALL.

My husband purchased our KitchenAid mixer several months ago. I have always wanted a stand mixer so I was thrilled. We had a lot of fun choosing the perfect color and, for a moment, I was tempted to get one of each. After taking our mixer out of the box I quickly cleaned everything and found the right place on my kitchen counter. Finally, I gathered the necessary ingredients for a favorite cookie recipe and got to work. The mixer was amazing! It was the perfect tool for each step and was extremely easy to clean. I have used it several times since then with the same results. I would recommend that anyone who does any sort of baking or cooking purchase a KitchenAid mixer for themselves.

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.
