Product Description

Product Description

Factory Reconditioned Model

KitchenAid's Artisan stand mixer is a substantial piece of equipment: 325 watts of mixing power make child's play of creaming butter, kneading dough, and whipping cream. The kid in you will appreciate how quick and easy it is to mix up a batch of cookie dough. This model comes with three attachments: a flat beater for making batter, meat loaf, and all textures in-between; a wire whip for egg whites, mayonnaise, and more air-infused creations; and a hook for mixing and kneading yeast doughs. All three are solidly constructed and easily secured to the beater shaft with a simple twist. The bowl itself locks tight to the base. Standing about 15 inches high, jutting out a foot, and weighing more than a grown woman's bowling ball, this stand mixer isn't the sort of appliance you'll wipe down and put away. Better to find a square foot of free counter space for easy access; besides, this machine is as pretty as it is rugged--you'll want to show it off. --Betsy Danheim

Editor's note: This is a reconditioned small appliance. Reconditioned generally means that the appliance has been returned to the manufacturer, who brings the appliance back to like-new condition. Some appliances may contain cosmetic blemishes.

WOW! It's hard to believe the price on this incredible mixer-even considering it's reconditioned. Before making my purchase, I contacted KitchenAid's Support Center (a toll-free phone number for anyone to use)and wanted the bottom line of a "Factory-Reconditioned" Product. In my own personal experience, I've dealt with companies that had differing ideas on what they meant by "Reconditioned", "Refurbished", "Like New" and some others.

I wanted this review to be as useful as possible so I did as much research as I could, hopefully it will help you to make a more informed and comfortable decision. The wonderful and personable customer service representatives as KitchenAid were very helpful in answering a list of questions that I had prepared. I already had the mixer but wanted to make certain that the information I was passing on to you was as up to date as possible. They reassured me that when they put the "Factory-Reconditioned" stamp of approval on the KitchenAid RRK150WH Artisan 5-Quart Mixer they're basically saying that you're getting a brand new-ish machine that has met or exceeded every standard necessary to place the original product on the shelves in the first place. I followed up with another question, "So how can that be since it IS different for whatever reason?" They gracefully explained that every KitchenAid Appliance must meet several strict standards (appearance, safety, etc.), standards that are manually checked and rechecked by actual quality control people in the factory, before they will place it for sale as reconditioned. I asked what the number one reason was for these great machines, and they really ARE great and powerful mixers, to be returned to the store or factory.

My refurbished mixer performs fine, but it's less than perfect. I'm able to overlook its minor problems, but if you're the type of person who worries about every scratch on your car or every ping the engine makes, save yourself the anxiety and buy a brand new mixer.

Upon taking the mixer out of the package, I noticed a small ding in the paint/enamel on the top of the mixer, and a few minor scratches on the stainless steel bowl. The metallic strip that encircles the head of the mixer also did not seem very well attached; I don't know if that had anything to do with it being reconditioned - it seemed like it just wasn't glued down to begin with.

Those were just cosmetic flaws and didn't really bother me. What concerned me was the strange, low grinding noise the mixer made when I started it up (I've used these mixers before and I know they're not supposed to sound like that). It only makes this noise when operating on the first two speeds; on higher speeds it sounds fine. After running it a while, it seemed to me that it wasn't really broken, just noisy. Since the price is a pretty good deal and returning it would be a hassle (and who knows what I'd get in exchange) I decided to gamble on the noise not being anything serious.

So far I've used heavily for a couple of weeks and have made several batches of bread dough with it. It works just fine. I've gotten used to the noise and it doesn't seem to have any impact on the actual performance. I don't have any other complaints about the machine. It's easy to use and clean up, and having one makes a big difference in the kitchen.

If you're looking for a bargain, go ahead and take a chance on one of these. If you're looking for perfection, you're better off buying a brand new Kitchenaid.

My factory-reconditioned KitchenAid Artisan Series 5 quart stand mixer arrived in perfect condition (no scratches, chips, or dents) with all of its accessories. All parts fit together properly. The mixer worked flawlessly on the first try and has continued to do so ever since.

It is sturdy, very well made and a pleasure to use. I have no regrets that I bought a factory-reconditioned product. I would recommend KitchenAid factory-reconditioned products to anyone, and I do.

Verified Purchase
This is my first Kitchenaid mixer and expectations were high. It came in flawless shape, with a perfect finish. I made a flowerless cake and it was perfect. I added a Kitchenaid pasta maker attachement and tried my hand at homemade pasta. I figured I'd try the Kitchenaid recipe first, and see how the whole proces worked. It had a tough time with the dough (30 sec with the blade, 2 minutes with a dough hook). I attached the pasta maker and all was working well. I noticed it was slowing down and speeding up, even if I wasn't feeing any dough through it. Then it stopped turning even though the motor was still running. It was pretty warm. Not good. Only got to run 1/4 of the dough and didn't finish that.

The next day, I tried it again with no attachments. Same slow down/speed up problem. Called Kitchenaid, who said it was out of warranty, but they would replace it anyway. Not good that their records were wrong, but fantastic that they still took care of me. A replacement is on the way, and I'll return the current model when the new one arrives.

So I give five stars for customer service. You gotta figure somebody will get a bad one, and I wanted to let everyone know how Kitchenaid took care of it. I never mentioned it was a refurb, since I wanted to see how they would treat me. I'd buy another Kitchenaid product in a heartbeat.
