Summary: This is a great unit! Bought it for my Girlfriend for our Anniversary and she really loved it. She does a lot of baking and it makes doing homemade cookies and other things simple. She's about to start trying to make bread with it as well. I would definitely recommend this over competitors brands. Ebay made this purchase simple, easy, and it got here on time.
Summary: Awesome mixer, works great, absolutely love it. I can cook potatoes, strain them, place in bowl, add butter & milk. Whola!! After a few minutes, we've got GREAT mashed potatoes that are creamier than using hand mixer, without all the hassles. Baking & cooking is so much more fun now!! It really handles all the work without any strain & makes creating dishes so much more fun & easier.
Pros: This is the best stand mixer I have ever used for my home kitchen! The mixer is easy to use and clean and is very versatile. I love the fact that other attachments can be purchased for cheese grating, meat grinding, etc...I cook for a small Fraternity and purchased one for there as well. The price I paid on New-egg for 2 of these was cheaper than buying just one anywhere else that I researched.
Summary: Bought this for a birthday present. She was soooooooooo excited to get a Kitchen Aid and then she saw the color! This is her all time favorite present/kitchen appliance. I have had mine for a few years and would not buy any mixer other than a Kitchen Aid again. The quality of craftsmanship and the variety of attachments makes this a must have for any kitchen where cooking is fun.
