the kitchenaid is very good and I have no problem with it, is the best investment you and miss. I recommend it to everyone I can. It is best to buy it from the comfort of my home. Excellent, excellent, the best. I love JCP

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1JohnnyO NOT the Kitchen-Aid of the Past!
2013-12 Thumbs Down! I was a Kitchen-Aid fan but their product quality & warranty dropped to last place. Why? These two scenarios will convince you. I bought a Kitchen-Aid Professional 600 Mixer 3-years ago & used it approx. 1-time per month. Our machine’s gears were stripped mixing dough on speed-2 (Kitchen-aid required speed). Kitchen-aid estimates repair cost to be approximately a fourth of the cost of the machine, I pay shipping each way. This is their PROFESSIONAL model? My 2nd Scenario: My father bought a Kitchen-Aid, home model, 37-years ago, which I still own. I come from a very large family & we used that mixer 20-times per month, making cakes, bread, grinding meat, grating cheese & potatoes. The machine was used on top speeds & on occasion got stuck in dough, or pressure on grater or meat grinder. Never did we strip a gear. The machine has never been repaired. It’s never been in for maintenance. The machine still works! The dough hook runs above speed-2. I do NOT recommend Kitchen-Aid as their quality was left in the past!

I love my mixer. I have another KitchenAid mixer 4.5 qt, but wanted bigger. Wish I could have gotten 7 or 8 qt KitchenAid...maybe will make some day. I do love the added capacity, though. These are durable products. My smaller one was a cast-off from the bakery I worked at. They said it didn't work anymore. I took it home and added food grade grease where needed and put a new cord on it (it had a cloth covered cord, so you know it's been around for awhile!) It makes a bit of noise, but still works wonderfully. That was almost 20 years ago and it is still going strong. I did have to replace a gear ten years ago, but that's all that has been done to that one. I have no doubt this one will last as long; probably 50+ years! Great products, KitchenAid. Kudos to someone who is willing to make something good that will last and is reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KitchenArtist I have owned and used KitchenAid mixers for decades because they are the best.
Just moved up to the 600 because I need to make more baked goods and the size of the bowl alone, makes having 2 KitchenAid Mixers very useful for large projects. My other Mixer has been in use since 1990, but this new Professional 600 is a dream to use due to the bowl lift and clean up is easy. Love to cook again. Thanks KitchenAid. & JCP for making the price right.

I bought this to replace my 5-qt Artisan mixer, although I have ended up using both since I purchased it, depending on the quantity of what I am making. I primarily wanted the 6-qt both for its larger capacity and more powerful motor, so I could knead larger batches of bread dough at one time. It excels at that, and without threatening to vibrate itself onto the floor, as is the case with the lighter Artisan. I can also make 10 cups of Swiss meringue buttercream at one time in the 6-qt, or cake batter for a 9" x 13" cake, with ease. On the negative side, it is noisier than the Artisan mixer and I find removing the attachments more difficult than on the tilt-head Artisan, but this is more than made up for by the time I save in being able to make larger batches of bread, frosting and cake batter. If you purchase the 3-qt bowl and attachment accessory, it beats smaller quantities of Swiss meringue buttercream to the most wonderfully smooth and creamy consistency!

I love all the features it has I can double my recipes and the motor is strong enough to handle the double batch. I love all the attachments it offers and I don't have to run and get a different kitchen aid to help me do what needs to be done in the kitchen.
When I make my home made rolls I don't kneed the dough I just let the mixer do the work and it turns out well.
It is very nice for the kitchen because I bake and cook a lot and use this mixer at least three or four times a week.

This is an excellent mixer. I previously purchased a 5 qt. model but it was not strong enough for making bread. I think it was a defective model because I know that Kitchen Aid makes quality products. The 6 qt. meets my needs.
