Every holiday my family of eight comes to visit. Being European, we bake a lot of cakes, cookies, and oddities for every one of these occasions. Prior to buying the Kitchen Aid KSM150PSMC mixer we relied on pure elbow grease (along with several blenders and an arsenal of utensils).

My research showed told me that this mixer was noisy, hard to clean, and unreliable. Well, contrary to popular belief, I bought the mixer and I am proud to say that none of the statements above are true. The noise is not noticeable when you are working in a kitchen, cleanup is a snap, and it is well built.
Clean up is as simple as wiping down the mixer and hand washing the bowl and utensils. I was expecting dough and similar mixes to stick to the metal, but as long as you clean it within 4 hours of use, it glides right off.
The metal on this mixer is thick and durable; also the paint does not chip or fade. The gears and moving parts are also made of thick metal and seem indestructible.
There is a noise, especially on the higher speeds, but this is unavoidable. The fact is that moving metal parts make noise. Although when you are working in a kitchen the noise is not even noticeable.
The kitchen used to be this stressful multitasking heat-box, but after we bought the Kitchen Aid mixer it was a different story. The kitchen suddenly became this place of productivity and efficiency. I would no longer have to read several recipes’ while I was stirring a mix and trying to beat eggs. This mixer is essentially like having another set of hands.
