Summary: This was a Christmas gift for my daughter, and she loves it! She told me mixing mashed potatoes was so much easier, as was making cakes and cookies. She can't wait to continue "experimenting" with other foods. She wanted a tangerine (orange) mixer, which I was able to find for a very good price on eBay. Great appliance!
Summary: I absolutely LOVE my mixer. At first I wasn't so sure. The beaters were not scraping the bowl and I had to keep stopping it to scrape it out. Than my friend told me about the screw that adjust the beaters!! WOW what a difference..... I would recommend this KitchenAid mixer to every one!!
Summary: My brother has been wanting one of these for a long time so I thought I'd surprise his family this xmas. They have used it several times and LOVE IT!!! It's so versatile that you can do almost anything with it. Next time, I'm getting one for myself because they quality and price are amazing.
Summary: I bought the mixer because of the price. I wanted a red one but they were too expensive. I will not be displaying it on the counter so it really does not matter. I love the way it works and would buy it again.
Pros: Newegg offered fast 3 day UPS shipping for free. This mixer normally runs upwards of $250. Motor is very powerful, and bowl is a nice size.
Cons: Not sure when Kitchenaid phased out the ceramic mixing attachments, as now they are using hollow plastic ones painted to look like metal. Not a big fan of these, but I guess the pro is that they won't break as easily as ceramic ones when dropped.
Summary: I purchased an Artisan line KitchenAid Mixer recently. I actually purchased it as a gift for a friend because mine has become indispensable to me. My friend does a lot of cooking and canning. The KitchenAid is a definite friend in a kitchen, mixing in sticks of butter straight from the frig and mixing thoroughly baking powder or soda added at any time. It's a hands-free, durable mixer with plenty of power. The attachments are an added plus for canning.
