I grew up in a KitchenAid home, so when I received this mixer as a wedding gift, I was ecstatic, even though my husband's family were quite loud in expressing their opinions that Bosch mixers are much better.
Recommend this product?
Not long after I received my mixer, my mother's (which she had owned since I can remember) died. She had it repaired and now it works for very light-duty projects.
I chalked that up to age.
About a year and a half later, my kitchenaid's motor was burnt to a crisp. I had used it mainly for mixing bread and cookie doughs. So I took it to a repair shop. Of course, by then the warranty had expired.
Now my mixer, too, works only for light jobs, such as whipping cream and mixing cake batter. My mom and I both have to knead our bread and mix our cookies by hand. Add to that the fact that since the repair, the top of my mixer opens slightly, then closes again during each rotation of the beater. A gross black motor oil drips out into my batter if I fail to watch for the drips. Occasionally, a curl of shredded metal also falls out into the mixing bowl.
Bottom line. I hate to admit it, but I think my mother-in-law is right. When I get the money for a new mixer, it's going to be a Bosch.
