Rated 3 out of 5Â by NotAKnitter Not the Quality of Your Grandmother's Mixer
Kitchenaid needs a better manufacturer since they switched from the Hobart made units, one of which I have had for 20+ years. The new attachments are very poor quality. Right out of my box I found that the wire whisk tines were pitted, and the flat beater had a chip of paint off it. Possibly they were purchased and returned damaged. However the wire whisk is not all stainless and has to be hand washed now which is very time consuming if you have ever tried it. The plastic pouring shield doesn't even fit on the bowl. I am going to use the mixer as much as possible before the 30 day return period. If it skips or lags in power, it is going back! I did complain about the damaged attachments to Kitchenaid's customer service and they sent me replacements promptly.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by AShea Love this Mixer!
I wanted to buy this mixer because it's like a right of passage to have one. I finally used it and I see what all the fuss is about. This machine is the Cadillac of stand mixers! The ingredients blend together almost immediately, the quality is superb and it's pretty to boot! So glad I purchased this mixer!

Â by Juanis Mixer arrived damaged/Not so happy w/ the color
A neighbor of mine let me borrow her mixer and I was in love. I'm not a kitchen person but my experience won me over, plus I couldn't skip a great deal. It literally felt like the order arrived at the click of the order button lol However to my surprise the mixer had a few scratches, a dent, and the mixing bowl rim was damaged.
I ordered the buttercup color and was hoping for more of a darker yellow/mustard color. Something more like the yellow at the bottom of the mug in the picture I've attached. The color is nice if you are looking for a regular yellow. I'd like to see the Majestic yellow next to the buttercup. It would be nice to check them out at the store but unfortunately these specific colors are only available online. Going to play it safe and will exchanging for the metallic chrome that is available at one a nearby store.
