Rated 5 out of 5Â by bml4 I have made cookies, mashed potatoes, eggnog and lots of other things with my new mixer and I've decided that I like it :) . In the other reviews I read that the slow speed is really slow, it is! I was expecting more speed out of the high speed though. It doesn't spin nearly as fast as my old mixer but I have noticed that even in the thick dough and potatoes it doesn't bog down either. So all in all I think the little slower fast speed might turn out to be alright. We'll just have to see how long it lasts!! Oh I would definitely do the 7 speed (the one I bought) over the 5 speed.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by MDShopper1 Disappointing
I have the "big" mixer and just wanted to replace my 20+ year old hand mixer and ordered this. I tested it and was very disappointed at how it operates on the highest setting. As compared to my older mixer, this was more like a medium setting and I am surprised, especially since it is a KitchenAid.
As an example, I was making a receipe where I had to cream the butter and sugar and, on the highest setting, this took too long in my opinion. I am going to take it back and try to get one that has more speeds.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by SnootBit very quiet
I have only used this mixer 4 or 5 times since I bought it, but so far I have no complaints. It is very quiet, lightweight, and powerful. I haven't made anything heavy yet, such as cookie dough, that will be the ultimate test. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend. I paid more for this mixer than my other three mixers combined which did concern me at first, but I am a firm believer in "you get what you pay for" and I was not sorry I spent the money.

I replace this with a 50 year old mixer I got for a wedding gift. I used the doe hooks and was so surprised that it was able to mix a big bowl of cookies with a hand mixer. I had no idea you could do this with a hand mixer. I didn't have to get out my big mixer to do this. The cookies went to a granddaughter that's stationed in Kuwait.She loves chocolate chip cookies and the mixer was wonderful.Thanks to your mixer she will love the cookies as part of her Christmas. This mixer was recommended by my best friend. This was my first kitchen aid product and I will be buying more of your brand in the future
