Due to the very high number of complaints about the problems people were having with heavy duty tasks (which is what the mixer should have been made for!) due to cheap plastic housing holding the heavy duty metal gears, I contact KitchenAid to find out if this design flaw has been fixed. It has been and here is their response (note that they are saying that if you receive one of the models with the plastic housing they will replace it under warranty with the new metal housing. It is also important to note that the people who've had the problem have almost all stated that KitchenAid had great customer service and replaced their mixers with no ones with no problems.

RESPONSE FROM KITCHENAID: Thank you for visiting the KitchenAid website!

I would like to reassure you that our engineering and product teams have addressed the gear box issue. In fact, we have already implemented a change in the manufacturing of the Pro 600 Stand Mixers to a metal gear box. Although these will be changed out on additional 5 qt bowl-lift models that include all metal gearing, the time line on that is not known at this time. Although a transparent change, this will insure the long-term durability we expect.

I would like to emphasize to you that should you purchase a Stand Mixer (with all metal gearing) which has not been assembled with the upgraded metal gear box, and you should have a problem with your mixer (as a result of the plastic gear box (failure), we will most certainly extend your warranty to resolve the issue properly and effectively.

If you have additional questions, feel free to reply back to me. Or, you may contact either our KitchenAid Customer Satisfaction Center at 1-800-541-6390, or you may visit our secure KitchenAid Live Chat.

Update October 22, 2012
The original review was written back in 2005. Since then, KitchenAid has replaced the plastic gearbox cover with one made with metal. This review may be outdated at this point, but accurately reflects the problems we were having back under the previous design.

Original text from December 16, 2005:

They advertise ALL METAL GEARS, but fail to disclose that those gears are held in place with a PLASTIC COVER!

Allow me to share my story:

I am an engineer, my wife; a domestic goddess. We have not purchased a loaf of bread in this household for over 3 years now. Every kitchen gadget we own is top of the line because we know that it'll get used, and used hard. That and being an engineer, I can really appreciate a well designed product. The KitchenAid mixer is the ONLY appliance we own that has continuously failed at every opportunity.

Dezra (my wife) had been using her Artesian 325 watt to make dough's and whatnot for years. When she started getting serious about bread making, she requested the wheat grinder for Christmas, which she got. When she put it on the mixer, it strained for a bit then "Popped".

I could hear that the transmission had broken. I opened it up and found that the electric motor feeds into a gearbox, and all the gears in that gearbox are held together by a PLASTIC COVER! I was astonished that ANY design engineer would consider that as being sufficient.

What happens is that the strain on the motor translates directly to strain on the gears, which warm up. As soon as the plastic cover warms up, it starts to flex. The moment it starts flexing, the gears are no longer meshing properly which generates more heat until the teeth of the gears bind up and the plastic cover simply cracks.

I have had this model for about 4-5 years. Before I purchased this I had a 5-quart KitchenAid Artesian mixer that I got for a wedding present in 1992.

I have always baked a lot. Especially from fall through spring and the Artesian was great. However, the five-quart model just got to be too small, especially when I had kids. Since I had kids I bake more and found myself doing two to three batches back to back with the Artesian.

Now with this model I can double batches of pumpkin bread, cakes or cookies with no problem and be done in less time with less fuss. I thought I would miss the tilting head but I don't.

The only thing I did not like about this model were the aluminum blade and dough hook. So I ordered the coated ones for this machine. I always soak my blades and wash them by hand; it would be nice if they made stainless steel versions of these but enough consumers have to make noise to get them to do something.

I gave my old Artesian 5-quart to my niece who is single with no kids. She also bakes a lot but in smaller batches than I do and the Artesian is still going strong. It works great and looks like new and her friends are always trying to borrow her mixer. If you don't bake a lot or tend to bake in smaller batches the Artesian is great.

This model is a great choice for a high volume home baker like me; great quality, durable and powered to do bigger batches.

I have owned a Kitchen Aid Ultra Power for 15 years and try as I might, I could not break it. I finally relented and purchased the new Kitchen Aid Professional 600 with 575 watts of true power. I really like the additional capacity of the 6qt bowl and the soft start. It kneads bread better than the older one without binding the dough on the hook. The mixing shield is also much more user friendly. The only drawback is there is not enough room to freely detatch mixing attachments without taking the bowl off and it can get messy.
