    Pros: Easy to scrape down the bowl, as it lowers via its lever.

    Cons: If you don't use it all the time your gonna have problems

    Summary: Ok kitchenaid has a newer designed mixers which are not built like this, they have a cheep bowl and not a sturdy lift making it not good for heavy doughs such as pasta. the bowl will flex and pop out. This mixer has one plastic gear that is hard to ... read more

    Pros: Truly a durable and trouble free piece of equipment.
    Cons: Missing attachments. Speed control tops-out at '9', rather than '10'.

    Summary: I purchased a K5SS stand mixer at an estate sale recently, and I'm thrilled with all of the positive reviews of this particular model. For years, I've yearned for an Artisan, but never did enough baking to deem it a worthwhile purchase. When I saw this ... read more

  • What an amazing gift!

    Dec 30, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: easy clean up, rugged design, I will pass this on to my kids
    Cons: the white seems to keep the aluminum scuffs from the bowl.

    Summary: Christmas was amazing and the new year will be filled with baked goods. I had been wanting one of these mixers for years and it is well worth the wait. I have already made breads and baked puddings. Clean up is a breeze! Bread baking is so easy now. ... read more

  • Love this mixer!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Can be left alone to work on its own.
    Cons: The con is also a pro i.e. heavy.

    Summary: I don't use it often but when I need it, it performs! My mother's roll recipe is just horrendous to make without this wonderful gadget. Sure saves my aching arms in kneading dough. Use a hand-held for whipping small amounts of ... read more

  • Not my experience

    Pros: It has a nice box
    Cons: It is a poorly designed machine designed to fail. No support from Kitchenaid.

    Summary: I am glad you all love your kitchenaid. Mine broke with little use and no support from kitchenaid. I would not waste anymore of my money on this machine. It is not what I would consider heavy duty. I bought this machine because I thought it was quality ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Durable, powerful, easy to clean, looks good
    Cons: Not ideal for small quantities

    Summary: We've had ours now for seven years and couldn't say enough about it. Ours is the stainless finish and I love the way it looks on the counter (no need to put it up after each use). It isn't intended for use with very small quantities, but for everything ... read more

    Pros: Looks good, Name recognition
    Cons: Crappy Customer service, warranty, plastic gear, broke after little use

    Summary: I purchased this for my wife just under 2 years ago since she and my mother in law love to make holiday cookies. It worked flawlessly for the dozen or so times that it was used over the past 2 years. Then my wife pulled it out to make a cake and the ... read more

  • A Powerful Addition

    Oct 22, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Durable, powerful, versatile
    Cons: Weight, price of attachments

    Summary: I received my KitchenAid as a wedding gift six years ago. I have used this mixer for everything from egg whites to bread dough and it has performed like a champion. The orbital mixing action ensures a consistent and thorough mix of ingredients. Do ... read more

  • Disappointed

    Apr 1, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Liked all the attachments
    Cons: Does not hold up, and for the money should work for longer than one year!

    Summary: I had an older kitchenaid mixer that is still running but I wanted a new professional one. After only 1 year the motor is completely stripped and I only used this mixer approximately once a week. My son bought one of the smaller models and has since ... read more

  • Excellent Workhorse, But To Much for My Needs

    Feb 7, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Power, Reliability
    Cons: None. Just to big for my kitchen needs.

    Summary: My wife purchased this great mixer 5 years ago. It does everything as advertised. However, it is just to much for my needs. This model as a crank-up bowl that is great for large batches, but if I could do over I would get the model in which the motor ... read more

    Pros: Extremely durable, powerful, flexible.
    Cons: Heavy, no tilt makes adding ingredients clumsy at times.

    Summary: I received this mixer as a hand-down from my parents. They purchased it over 25 years ago. It's still going strong. It still kneads the dough so I don't have to. I also have the meat grinder attachment to grind meat and make sausage. It works great. ... read more

  • Design problems

    Oct 2, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great for large quantities and you can put up with only having high speed.
    Cons: Bad for small quantities. Variable speed feature burns out repeatedly.

    Summary: I've had mine for several years in my home kitchen, and it's been a real disappointment. It's no good at all for small quantities (like whipping cream or a small cake) because the beater doesn't reach the bottom of the bowl. Since it's so big and heavy, ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Reliability, Great All Around Fantastic
    Cons: Heavy if not stationary

    Summary: Fantastic mixer. I am a Pastry Chef and all I use is KitchenAid. It truly is a Kitchen-Aid in the kitchen. I love this mixer. For 1 egg white to double batches of anything it is more than up to the challenge of whatever you throw its way. Great ... read more
