    This mixer is great. It is the first step into the KitchenAid world of mixers. Love the tilt head better than the ones that don't tilt. It will stand time where other mixers will fall short. I own one for my home and love it, so, when we needed a mixer for the church kitchen to help in making 1,000 cookies for an out reach ministry, I choose a KitchenAid. We have been pleased with the power of this mixer. We can only cream the wet ingredients because it's bowl is not large enough to put 8 cups of dry ingredients but we knew that when we bought it. I hope you enjoy yours. :)

    Kitchen Aid Customer Service is Awful
    11/8/2013

    Customer review by MobileSaver

    Kitchen Aid Customer Service is Awful. While using this mixer for the first time it leaked a gray oily substance in my cake batter. I called Kitchen Aid customer service and the manager at the customer service center blamed the delivery driver for possible dropping the mixer and causing it to leak. If the deliver driver did drop the mixer it was not in my presence. He took great care in the product. He even brought it in the house and sat it on the floor. I asked kitchen Aid only to reimburse me for my expense in my cake batter. The Kitchen Aid customer Service head manager would not. He only wanted to give me a credit towards the purchase of another kitchen aid product on their site. Everything on their site is very expensive. Why would I want another product with Kitchen Aid and this product is not right? I stayed on the phone with Kitchen Aid Customer Service manager for 3 or 4 hours and still did not get a satisfactory solution from them. In Summary: You better hope you don't have any problems with Kitchen Aid products because they will not try to make it right.

    I replaced my KitchenaAid Stand Mixer given to me over 20 years ago. I loved it. It came with two glass bowls that were wide enough to scrape while mixing. This new model comes with one bowl and it is too narrow to scrape while mixing. I have to continually stop the mixer, lift it up, scrape the sides of the bowl then back to mixing for a minute then repeat. My Christmas baking is usually an enjoyable event for me but this year I was very frustrated at having to stop and scrape. Why on earth would they change the design???? It is NOT an improvement. I want my old one back. It worked beautifully and KitchenAid should have left well enough alone!

    After burning out a beater every 6 months I bought the kitchen aid and I am very happy. I have one recipe for cookies that burns out beaters very quickly not this time!! Just fantastic very heavy duty. I would recommend this to everyone, in fact I have given one as a present to a family member for Christmas..

    Compared to Oster Planetary Mixer review
    1/2/2014

    Customer review by jbskaggs

    3.0 stars 1/2/2014 by jbskaggs
    by jbskaggs

    I have a very small budget and needed a machine that could knead french bread dough. I bought the Oster Planetary machine for a $150 and the kitchenAid Classic from Walmart for $199 and ran six batches of bread through both machines. This Oster Mixer makes more noise than the Kitchen Aid and the attachments are not as heavy duty as the Kitchen Aid. But this Oster machine has more torque and the mixing action combined with the bowl shape created six consistent dough balls. The Kitchen Aid only consistently kneaded four out of six batches. I wish I had filmed the two machines making dough. The Oster actually flips the dough around, folding, and kneading it while the Kitchen Aid Classic sorta does more of just twisting the dough, the Oster just does a better job of actually simulating human hand kneading of the bread. I have owned larger KitchenAids and they are worth the money, this smaller 250watt version just doesn't have the torque to handle the heavy bread doughs. This Oster Planetary machine has a 350watt motor and the Kitchen Aid classic has a 250 watt motor. Also this machine does not have the ability to have the extra attachments like pasta maker etc like the Kitchen Aid. Though either machine would work for batters, creams, etc the Kitchen Aid Classic does not work well for actual bread doughs. Where as the Oster machine handles the doughs just fine- with this caveat I don't know how long making doughs everyday it will last. If you can afford it a machine with a motor of 450watts or better would be the perfect size for making lot's of batches of bread doughs at home, this Oster can do the job if you are like me and cannot afford a $500 mixer. When I do buy a bigger mixer- if Oster sells a larger Machine I will definitely buy it. And I would definitely not hesitate to buy the oster mixer for my friends or family as a solid home mixer. If you want a Kitchen Aid buy the Artisan model (350watt) at least, as this classic model with 250watt motor will just frustrate you in making yeast breads. If you are just wanting to make batter breads and creams etc this kitchen Aid Classic machine works well.

    • A. ABSOLUTELY! Kitchenaid attracted me precisely because of how durable (and powerful) their mixers are! You won't be sorry to have one on your counter. They are heavy, though, since the body is metal. (This is a bit late for Christmas, I know, but I hope you decided to get one for your mom.)

    • A. It works well for mashed potatoes. You don't need to use a potato masher first. However, it can only do like 5 lbs at a time. And since I only use it mine once in awhile, I can't tell if it will last using it everyday for a long time. Using it on the lowest setting is best to avoid over heating the motor. I've owned mine since Late March 2011.
