    Pros: Built to last quality providing superior service, in an easy to use product
    Cons: It's weight makes it impractical to move around.

    Summary: My wife and I had been waiting for a deal on a 4 1/2 quart and, after an lot of research we decided we really should have the 5 quart, but it was a little pricey. A regional department store sent out a flier recently and to my surprise they featured the ... read more

    Pros: Great attachments. Looks professional.
    Cons: Heavy but not heavy-duty.

    Summary: 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. Not long after I received my mixer, my ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, handles large quantities well, and easy to clean.
    Cons: It does require a rather large "footprint" on one's kitchen counter.

    Summary: I used an older Kitchenaid mixer when I prepared dinners for 150 people. I have a K-Tec in whose performance I am very disappointed. For my birthday last year my children gave me a KitchenAid 325 Watts K5SS Heavy Duty Commercial Stand Mixer which was ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: You'll continue to be amazed at what it can do!
    Cons: That the mixer doesn't already come with the shield and bowl lids.

    Summary: I received this mixer as a gift for an anniversary. My mother had the same type of mixer, a similar model having the same transmission, and said she wouldn’t have anything else. We have all battled with cookie batters that were far too heavy for hand ... read more

    Pros: Fast, time saving, beautiful, and has it all. Luxury at it's best!
    Cons: Expensive. Heavy.

    Summary: If I only had four arms...I could keep up with the Christmas cookie bake off for all of my loved ones, I could whip up batches of homemade muffins and eggs florentine like a pro! Or maybe, my new expensive baby by KitchenAid will put me at the top of the ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use. Cleanup is a snap! Powerful and not bogged down by heavy doughs!
    Cons: Extremely heavy and quite a space hog.

    Summary: I love this mixer. I've wanted a KitchenAid mixer for several years now, but the price was always seemingly out of my budget. Every year, however, found me buying another mixer (or two) as they eventually would burn out with any heavy doughs. Since I ... read more

    Pros: A powerhouse of a mixer. Makes light work of many tasks.
    Cons: Only comes in white. Not easy to move.

    Summary: Got this mixer for a wedding gift. Always wanted one. Back then, I coveted my Grammie's 60 year old Sunbeam bowl mixer (which still works to this day!) So, I was thrilled to finally get one of my own. However, unless you're a regular baker (and I wasn't) ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: All-metal construction. Heavy duty transmission and planetary mixing action.
    Cons: Wire whisk not dishwasher safe. Very heavy. Not a mixer to be carried a lot!!

    Summary: WHY ANOTHER KITCHENAID MIXER? At first, I wasn't going to buy another KitchenAid mixer. I was thinking about buying the Electrolux. But then I thought I'd try this one out first. Also, the Electrolux has an 8-qt. bowl, which qualifies it to make up ... read more

    Pros: Does the work for me, well worth the cost.
    Cons: Heavy and large needs it's own space on the counter,

    Summary: I will start by stating that I have had my KitchenAid K5SS for 12 years now. I received it as a wedding gift so I am not sure what it cost back then. Now it sells for around $300.00. I was a cake baker for many many years, including making my own ... read more

    Pros: Good for mixing general household mixing- cakes, pies, mashed potatoes.
    Cons: Not suitable for heavy dough kneading.

    Summary: I was given this mixer as a gift a few years ago and it always worked fine for a few years. Then I started using it to make bread. I made a six cup flour recipe, which is within the limits of the mixer. After many months of the mixer straining to knead th ... read more

    Pros: For some reason, KitchenAid has a good reputation.
    Cons: My KitchenAid K5SSWH was either poorly designed or had a defective part.

    Summary: I agree with most of the negative reviews on this web site. After several years of infrequent and usually light use, the composite gear stripped. I'm hoping the replacement gear (costing nearly $30.00) is made of an improved composite ... read more
