PIECE OF JUNK
22 December 2015
Summary: Update is in replies--- This thing broke itself just outside of its warranty! The little Kitchen-Aid sign at the top unscrewed while I was blending cupcake batter, fell in, and jammed the mixers. Now they won't move.
Summary: I used a KitchenAid in a job, many years ago, so I knew what I was getting. This was a birthday present for myself, and I'm glad I bought it. Christmas baking was as easy and efficient as it was to clean the machine.
Summary: I bought my wife one of these about 35 years ago. She uses it at least twice a week. Since then, I have purchased both my daughters and my son's girl friend one. These ladies are very proud of these machines. This is a heavy duty machine and can do just about anything.
Summary: I've had no problems with this mixer. I originally bought it for bread-making (hand kneading takes too long unless you only make bread a couple of times per year). Since then, it has managed to pay for itself with just the time it has saved me.
Summary: The appliance is only good as a decoration in your kitchen, or perhaps if you use it once a month. After two years of use (about twice a week) in making bread a small plastic white gear in the box wore out and the machine stopped.
Summary: I absolutely hate this mixer. I was given it as a gift several years ago, and wasn't able to use it right away since I was living abroad. When I was able to get it to my place and try it, I found that as the mixer was being used METAL DUST was falling down into the dough! What?!
Summary: I purchased this mixer a couple of months ago. I have used it several times and love how it works. I had purchased the mixer based on Kitchen Aids reputation and on reviews submitted by others. I purchased the Artisan model over the larger model based on those reviews.
Summary: My mom has a KA classic stand mixer she's had for nearly 35 years. Seventeen years ago for my first married Christmas, I got a KA classic stand mixer from my husband. I have loved that mixer to pieces and use it nearly every day for some function whether it be baking cookies, breads, etc.
Summary: I saved up for this mixer for the last four months. If I had known that I was going to love it as much as I do, I don't think that I would have had the dicipline to wait to purchase it. I made up a batch of icing today that normaly takes at least 10 minutes to mix with a hand held mixer.
Summary: We spent the extra money to get what we expected to be a quality mixer that would last our family for years and years. We've had it for 2 years and it has started to make weird grinding noises. It sounds like it will die on us at any moment.
