- A versatile, high quality product- January 5, 2016
This is a high quality product. I gave this to my wife this for her Christmas and she was delighted. It saves her lots of time in food preparation. The downside is the high cost of attachments.

- OK, but with irritations and reservations- December 19, 2017
My wife bought me this for Christmas a few years ago. It generally works well, but there are a number of irritations such as: The mixing bowl gets stuck - when mixing pizza dough, for example, the mixing bowl becomes wedged in tightly, and takes a lot of strength to remove. It's easy to forget which direction is open, and end up tightening it even more; The lock-down lever for the mixer head won't stay closed, and wiggles open when kneading dough. If you leave the machine when kneading, you come back and the head is nodding up and down like crazy; The hinge pin for the head is just friction-fit, and it slides out a little every now and then. Not a big deal to push back in, but the head rattles around under load; The motor really strains and heats up when kneading dough - on the lower settings around 3 and 4, it seems like it's grinding to a halt sometimes. I don't get why they don't have two gear settings - like cordless drills, for example; When whipping cream, you get a big glop of un-whipped cream at the bottom; The knob that holds the accessory port cover on works itself loose every couple of months no matter how hard I tighten it. So far, I've caught the knob and cover before they fall into the mixer, but it's only a matter of time... Editorial: KitchenAid has been selling this expensive machine for a long time, and these sorts of sloppy flaws are inexcusable. Shame on them.

- Best purchase in years- December 29, 2015
The mixer is awesome and delivers what it promises, not to mention it is mostly attractive. So far I have tried making cakes, cookie dough, sweet bread dough, all with very good results. In fact, my cake turned out better than ever. It is a potent, easy to clean, stable mixer that combines ingredients to perfection. After having read the brief instructions manual, I learned I might need to reduce the mixing time in half for some recipes, as compared to other mixers or manual mixing/kneading; that will prevent overworking the dough/batter, which is also corroborated by some bread making books I've read. Before I bought the mixer I read some reviews here and a few people complained that they don't like the mixer for reasons that can be perfectly overcome by reading the manual, imho.
