Summary: You get what you pay for. It's amazing now easy it is to clean though, especially after kneading dough. When I made dough previously, there would always be little bits stuck to the side of the bowl.
Pros: Powerful (as advertised). Thorough, meaning it reaches all parts of the bowl (as advertised). Easy to clean (see below).
Cons: Takes up significant counter space (as advertised). Motor grease is pungent (as mentioned in the user's manual).
Summary: I just ordered this a few days ago and will be getting it in soon. I'm quite excited. I have a lot of experience using this Kitchen Aid mixer in my days working in a kitchen. I've always wanted to get one for home, but it's always been quite expensive - to be honest, Newegg was the last place I...
Pros: -Heavy -Sturdy bowl + lock -Strong motor -Easy to use -3 attachments for a variety of uses
Cons: -Heavy -I think it comes with the non-metal paddle and dough hook. I will invest in the all-metal ones soon.
Summary: I received this product as a gift, and I probably do not make the best use of it, as I only use it for mixing - and it does A LOT more.... However, my experience with this mixer has been very good.
Summary: This was my husband and my Christmas gift to each other. It's truly the gift that keeps on giving! From the minute it was unpacked and set on the kitchen island, it's been used a minimum of once a day, and as often as not two or three times a day.
