I purchased the Kitchenaid Classic stand mixer after becoming a stay-at-home wife/mom and wanting to provide healthier foods for my family with less processed ingredients, and more wholesome food choices. I wanted a mixer that would take the hard work out of kneading dough, and would do the work for me and simply allow me to put it in the oven to bake. This mixer does all that and more! It comes with a dough hook attachment for kneading bread, whisk for whipping meringues and others, and a flat spade for your everyday baking.

This is a heavy-duty machine that weighs somewhere around 20 pounds, so be prepared to leave this mixer on your counter because it's not easy to put up every time you use it because of it's weight. I was skeptical at first that it would be able to do everything that it claimed it'd do, but I have been so pleased because it has delivered all of that and more. I have used the dough hook numerous times to make up yummy breads, and have had no difficulty with this machine when it comes to kneading even tougher wheat breads. It consistently delivers a quality dough that has been well-kneaded and gives my hands a break from the kneading! I have used the flat spade attachment numerous times for muffins and cake batter and it always delivers an even batter without lumps making baking a breeze. This product also allows for use of other attachments sold by KitchenAid that will increase your capabilities with this machine. I have yet to venture into this area, but look forward to doing so with this mixer in the future.
My husband actually thanked me for purchasing this product because it means he gets to enjoy more home-baked goodness, and he's thankful that it's less-processed and more wholesome. I use mine on a regular basis because it makes the prep work so much easier, and cleanup is a breeze--Simply wash and dry. No scrubbing needed! To date, I have found no flaws in this product. It continues to deliver beyond my expectations!
