KitchenAid Pro 600 6 qt. 575 Watt 10 Speed Stand Mixer
I have waited for years to make this purchase. It was well worth the wait, I am stoked at how well built this machine is made. I have had the 275 watt machine before but I suggest you spend the extra money for this one. YOU WILL BE AMAZED!!!
I LOVE IT!! ~~SO, WHY ONLY 1 STAR???
I never thought I would be writing a 1-star review for my KitchenAid! I've had 2...I've purchased them for my daughters...and I WILL be buying another one for myself. The problem? I had a run-in with a chocolate chip! Seriously...a few months after buying this one, I was making chocolate chip cookies....somehow, one chocolate chip got wedged between the paddle beater and the edge of the bowl. The mixer was running at a normal pace, when--THUNK! All of a sudden, the mixer head was wobbling around, sounding like a washing machine out-of-kilter. It has never worked right since. There doesn't seem to be any way to repair it....the head is assembled so well at the factory, it's not coming apart. I will buy another one, however, if not for this freaky happening, I would have given it 5 stars! It just seems to me that this big, rugged machine should have been able to handle one little chocolate chip!
very unsatisfied with Kitchaid
I bought this mixer 8 years ago and use it maybe 7 times a year . Turned it on and it sounds like a bearing going out.I thought they were suppose to last a life time. I called kitchen aid and they want 32.00 shipping and up to 200.00 for repairs.very disappointed in Kitchen aid
Very happy with my mixer! I have waited a long time to get one.
First thing I noticed packaging was spot on. Product box and shipping box fit like snug gloves.
This mixer was a want and not a need. I indulged and have no regrets. The selling point for me ... the metal gears. The lift handle is great, similar to the commercial ones I used in my culinary days when people would pay to eat my cooking. This needs a dedicated spot unless you're trying to build biceps. Just say I like it. This would be a great gift for someone you love above your self.
Best purchase ever. The absolute best stand mixer with a value unmatched. I find any excuse to use this machine. I bake more breads, cakes, cookies, pies etc., Thank you QVC for a great product at a great price.
THE BEST MULTI-TASKING MIXER!
I received this mixer as my surprised birthday gift last year--with ALL of its attachments.
And, I loved it then and I love it even more now!
It is, indeed, THE best mixer in the market--for home use!
I waited to write a review, because I wanted to try it out first!
By now, I have played with all the attachments, with exception of the sausage maker, which is next!
I love that most of the parts are stainless steel, because they do not stain, nor trap bacteria as plastic does.
For those of you who want to make ice cream, let me tell you the ice cream turns our delicious; but, it is soft in consistency (as indicated in the manual, which did not bother to read, because O am not a manual reader; unless, I have to diffuse a nuclear bomb)!
Thus, if you want it denser, you need to place the ice cream in the freezer, for at least, a couple of hours so it can harden.
All an all, because of it six quarts size bowl and a strong motor; I can make large batches of cookie dough and freeze them for later use, as well as tart shells, and lots of banana, orange, and zucchini bread or muffins.
It is, indeed, a time saver!
Needless to say, this an essential in any one's kitchen, specially during the holidays or if you like to entertain like I do!
Ive wanted a kitchen aid for over 10 yrs, about 5 yrs ago my mother surprised me w/ this very mixer in Red..Its such a machine i was almost intimidated by the thing for the 1st yr!!! I now use it all the time, great for dough & cookies & such, this thing is a work horse ladies..The only issue i have is that i have a hard time getting the bowl to clamp down as i seen other ladies had the same issue..Its pretty annoying when ur in a rush, ive actually pulled out my hand mixer instead of fighting w/ it lol, Now ive been seeing the* Tilt Head* It wasnt offered at the time i got mine:/ Looks much easier to use...Still though, I LOVE MY KITCHENAID, ud have to pry it frm my cold dead hands b4 i gave it up :))
Love the mixer
So far this is a great mixer.. does what I need it too do... Only had it a few Months and no problems yet. love, love
Great Pro 6 Mixers, but gears need more grease.
In 200l I bought the Pro 6 525 watt mixer....a couple of years later it started smelling hot. My father-in-law was a professional repair man, and he said the company did not put enough lubrication in the gears during assembly. He lubricated it and it works just fine now years later. I have put this mixer through the wringer, you might say with some very heavy doughs, and have never been disappointed. I used it today to make double batches of pumpkin bread and banana bread. Love it.
I wish I would have bought a different model
I am so very disappointed with this machine. It is my first Kitchenaid. I don't like the fact that it is not a tilt head. When I purchased this it was Today's Special Value and I really didn't know anything about them. My bowl does not fit on correctly and therefore when it mixes it doesn't reach the bottom and you have to mix it manually. I should have sent it back. I have literally used it about 4 times. It has been such a waste of money. I am not a huge baker so I should have purchased a lesser model and not the professional model.
Love this mixer!!
I purchased this mixer for myself a couple of years ago, and I just purchased one for
my daughter. She has a child with peanut allergies and makes a lot of her own breads
and desserts. She loves it too! The mixer never slows down whether kneading bread
dough or cake batter. I checked a lot of places and you had the best prices all around.
Can't say enough good things about it.
