K5923 - KitchenAid Professional 5qt 450 Watt 10 Speed Stand Mixer
I've wanted one of these for 10 years and finally broke down an got one. Wish I had done it sooner.
A staple in my kitchen!
I have owned my mixer for almost a year now, and I love it! I make bread almost every day, a few cakes a month, and with pasta roller I also purchased, I make homemade pasta weekly. In between those tasks, I use it for everything from mashing potatoes to making homemade whipping cream. I have worked this thoroughly, and it's as efficient as the day I purchased it.
The only reason I did not give this a 5 star rating is that within a few months, the nylon coating on the attachments started wearing off. It's not horrible, but enough to be seen. I do follow the care instructions included, so I know its not due to inappropriate handling. If I could, I would give this a 4 1/2 star rating because this issue isn't really worth a whole star deduction.
Kitchen Aid Mixer
I just received my mixer last week. I have already used it 5 times. I just love it. It is quick and very powerful.. I do love to bake and I can hardly wait until I start my holiday baking. I can make double recipes in this mixer. I will really save alot of time.
I got the mixer and the food processor in the red, because thats what I accented my kitchen with down to the dogs bowls. I love to bake and never was able to perfect pound cake from scratch, but I made my very first cake with my wonderful mixer and the recipe that came with it. And it came out great! I can't wait to make desserts for the holidays and hopfully for others. I didn't do the easy pay but I'm so glad I got these items. Only thing missing is the pouring sheild, but there is always xmas. Thank you KitchenAid.
Fabulous KitchenAid Mixer!
My mixer in the gloss cinnamon color arrived today, and I am so happy and excited to have it! This is a quality item at a fantastic price. It looks beautiful on my counter, and now I'm all set for holiday baking and cooking. I make cookie trays for neighbors and friends as gifts, and my poor old wrist had a hard time last year when using a hand mixer to prepare cookie and brownie dough for hundreds of cookies. I used it for some items on my dinner menu tonight, and it is easy to use, and works like a dream. I also purchased an extra bowl, and I'll be using both to make breads and muffins from the last of the zucchini from our summer vegetable garden. I LOVE KitchenAid products, and want to say "Thank you, QVC!", for having this on installment payments. Get this for the home baker or home chef in your family. I really LOVE IT!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
This mixer is everything I ever need or want - its a wonderful gift for me!
Amazing results on everything I bake, cook or whip!
Don't miss a great opportunity...
gear head fell off
this is the second time I purchased this model....both times the gear head that hold the blades fell completely off into my dough...I am having to send this back- at least it is still under warranty...Kitchenaid has the absolute worst cust svc...last time they said there was nothing they could do- that mixer was 18 mo old....think twice about Kitchenaid.....
Everytime I use my mixer, I'm grateful for finally making the sacrifice to purchase the best mixer that I could afford at the time.I've been cooking since the easy bake oven and suzy homemaker oven days and I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase. Owning a mixer that has enough wattage keeps me from burning out the motor when mixing a recipe with a lot ingredients like with cheaper mixers. In the past when making certain recipes, I would need to have my husband stir because I would burnout the motor of lower wattage mixers (cheaper) .This mixer is strong enough to stir the heftiest cookies. This product makes cooking fun. I love my mixer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was great until.....
...tonight, when the housing and gear that holds and turns the paddle just fell off while creaming butter and sugar! I've never had an appliance just fall apart. The machine gets regular use, but not overuse, and for the price it should hold up better. I pulled out my thirty-year old "not-a-kitchenaid" mixer that worked just fine.
Worst purchase ever
I've had this mixer for less than 2 years & it is not under warranty. It's going to cost me $35 to have it shipped back to the factory & more to have it repaired. I have a smaller mixer that is 15 years old & never had a problem. There seems to be a problem with the gears that turn the blades, the blade won't turn completely. Please think twice about buying this product. I will never buy another Kitchen Aid product.
Get the tilt-back model!
The lift up bowl is hard to handle. When you remove the beaters, they have to be forced down into whatever you are mixing to get them out of the holders. So CLUMSY. I saved for months to get this and I am really sorry i didn't get the tilt back head.
This totally ROCKS
I finally broke down and bought this as well as the Kitchenaid food proscessor that QVC recently had on tsv just in time for Easter. I have always wanted one but the price kept me away. We got it in less than a week and have made cookies, cupcakes, and pizza dough so far. IT IS SO EASY TO USE!!!!!!!!!!!! We got it in Glossy Cinnamon and the color is beautiful almost a burgandy with a splash of brown. Do not hesitate buy this item!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
