KitchenAid 6 qt 575 Watt Glass Bowl Lift Stand Mixer w/ Flex Edge & 3 Acces.
Kitchen Aid is the best
I love this mixer. The bowl lift feature is very easy to use and even though it takes up more height and may not fit under everyone's cabinet, it has the power to make bread dough quickly and easily as well as run the Kitchen Aid attachment set. The ice cream maker that was a bonus item is also fun to use.
This looked great on the show but when actually using it I found some difficulties. The scraper does not access the whole bowl and the bowl is more difficult to get fitted on than displayed on qvc. I really like my old model much better. doesn't whip eggs well either.
I like my mixer and have created many "tasty treats" with it since the holidays.
I do, however, have a couple of complaints; although I'm right-handed, I have difficulty lifting with my right arm, therefore it's awkward and heavy. Also, since it's a lift model, instead of a tilt, you have to drop your accessories into the bowl which causes you to have to "spatula" them off in order to not loose batter, etc. and causes a bit of a mess.
And of course, there's the common complaint that it's difficult to add ingredients once the bowl is secured. Thus my visit to the website today; to order the pour shield. I may even order a cover!
I would recommend this item but hope KitchenAid thinks these things through with their next model.

Everything I wanted
I bought this mixer because I make a lot of European breads that require kneading and my bad back will not keep up anymore. My grandmother has a kitchenaid mixer and I remember using hers wishing I had a mixer like that. I saved up for this for a long time because I know kitchenaid really is the workhorse of mixers and they last a long time. I was so excited to receive it and I have been using it constantly for months now. I have used it primarily for baking and bread but it's really good for anything you want to mix or knead. I do not have any extra attachments yet. It's so easy to clean! The bowl is a little heavy if you have any trouble carrying but otherwise it's great. This mixer was everything I was expecting and more and I look forward to many more years of using this mixer.
Great machine still on the fence w/glass bowl.
This is an awesome mixer but I still have a some reservations about the glass mixing bowl... it makes your work just a bit harder due to the weight of the glass but has an up side as well due to being able to see all contents.
Love my mixer!!!
I love my Cobalt Blue KitchenAid mixer! This is a great investment! I had a lower watt one from over 10 years ago that still worked good but I needed a larger quart capacity for the batches I am producing. I can put 3 batches of cookie dough in the bowl at one time!
The high watt can mix fresh whip cream in a quarter of the time, so make sure your standing by it is fast! This has exceeded my expectations in performance, look, and size! I can see a difference in watts from my old mixer to this one. This will do the job in half the time of my old KitchenAid (and that one was already fabuous)! Everything is easy to clean and put back together! I was nearly affraid it would not fit under my cabinet but it did! Just a fraction taller it would have not budged.
Thank you for offering the value pays, that just put the cherry on top! Plus I bought the cover to go over it to keep it clean and protect it! This was a great investment to my kitchen! The color was even better, beautiful and rich!
Thank you KitchenAid and QVC!!!

WOUNDFUL ! So Happy I received it as A GIFT for My BIRTHDAY I think everyone who cooks and bakes should have one
Best Purchase Ever
Totally happy with this buy, QVC made it easy for me to afford it with easy pay. Plus it's beautiful and makes the best recipes ever. Thank u again QVC. : )
I liked this Mixer but it was so tall and big it wouldn't fit under my cabinets.my fault.. I didn't read the dimensions before ordering!.. to me this is more of a professional mixer ..too big for me.. went back..
Best of Four!
I've had three other KitchenAid mixers in the past that my children now own! This is by far the best one I've ever had!
I loved my mixers but the motors always dragged down when I used the dough hook for kneading bread and when I made a large batch of whipped cream all of the mixers took far longer than hand mixers. I finally decided to get this 575 Watt mixer and see if it worked better and I'm not disappointed! Yesterday I made the best homemade bread in my new mixer and it ran quieter and was so much stronger and faster than my other mixers.The color is so industrial looking while very beautiful too! I'm quite proud of my new KitchenAid!
It's a beautiful beast!
This mixer is HUGE! If you're going to get this one, realize that the mixer alone is about 22 lbs, and the glass bowl is nearly 7! Plan to find it a home where you don't have to keep lifting it unless you're using it as your workout. I absolutely love it, but I do wish the blades would go all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Other than that, it's perfect!
disappointed for the 1st time
I have purchase several kitchenaide mixers and given them all away to family. Based on previous experience I was thrilled to get the new mixer. However, when I mixed a a pound cake that I always get rave comments on, I found butter and sugar still in the bottom of the mixing bowl I had to dump the mix back in bowl to remix by hand and the results!!!!
