Color Name: Red Verified Purchase
I can't believe all the confusion and misinformation on here. So I just spent an hour talking to Amazon and KitchenAid and here's the scoop:
- This model number is WRONG. Amazon has a typo. KitchenAid has NEVER made a KP26M1PGC model. The last P there should be an X.
- The rebate is GOOD for this unit because it's really a KP26M1X model.
- The reason it's cheaper than the other Pro 600 models shown elsewhere on Amazon with multiple colors (KP26M1XER etc) is because this color is being discontinued.
- KA says it DOES come with the pour shield that is not shown here but is shown on the other page.
- KA also said that the gearboxes on all were updated in 2006 so all the specs on the other Pro 600 page apply to this one. I was afraid that the lack of info here meant it was the old model, or inferior etc, but they confirmed they are identical except for the color.
Hope this helps someone else not waste a couple hrs on this as I did.

If you just bought one and have found out any of this is wrong please let us know! Oh yeah, I had to choose a rating so I gave it 5 - I figure it counters all the 1 stars due to misinformation. TO me clearing the air was the most important thing not the rating.

My wife bought me this mixer as a Christmas present. It was to be an upgrade from my trusty old 4.5 quart KitchenAid mixer I've had for almost twenty years. This new one doesn't deserve to wear the KitchenAid name.

On the weekends I bake bread and bagels. Old trusty can plow through 5 or 6 batches of bagel dough without a problem. The new "pro" model can't even make it through two before switching off from overheating. Also it gives off an odor half way through the first batch. The recipe I use is from an old issue of Cook Illustrated, in the article they state they use a KitchenAid mixer. Also the recipe uses a mere 4 cups of flour.

If you really want one of these I'm considering leaving mine at the end of the driveway with a FREE sign on it. May save my pennies for Hobart (they owned KitchenAid back when my old mixer was made.)

Format: Kitchen
7 years ago I purchased my first Kitchen Aid mixer. I had a beautiful Robin's Egg blue Artisan 5 quart and it was glorious! The one problem i had Kitchen Aid promptly replaced my machine. As my kitchen tasks got bigger I decided to go up to the professional 600 series. I have hated it since i got it. it just never worked as well as my smaller artisan. WEll last Christmas as I was making a batch of marshmallows( as I had done tons of times in my smaller mixer) it just stopped. Of course it was right after the warrinty ran out. So I took it for repair and it was going to cost $200, why????? Because they used a plastic casing and if one thing goes the whole box goes. Then i called Kitchen Aid and they told me that they would send me an invoice and if it was determined it was a manufacturing flaw it would be fixed, but if not which they doubted it was I would be responsible to pay for the repairs and shipping. I then found out that Kitchen aid had been sold. I have decided not to fix it but put the $200 towards another brand. This machine was a cheap peice of garbage that cost bme $400. Kitchen Aid of yesterday is not the same kitchen aid today!

Color Name: Red Cayenne
Most of the bad reviews were written 6 or 7 years ago. I am surprised that Amazon allows these outdated reviews to remain on this site. Not very responsible on the part of Amazon! While the basic design on KitchenAid mixers does not change over time, the construction certainly does.

MODEL NUMBERS: Also notice the specific model number for each review. Since KitchenAid doesn't change the exterior appearance, you will see that many people are reviewing outdated products. The current production of this mixer (as of January 2014) is the KP26M1X the letters after that are color indicators. Most people are NOT reviewing this current model mixer. You would not know that unless you checked the KitchenAid web site. So if you're thinking of purchasing now, look for the KP26M1X, or if you're purchasing later check the web site for the most current model number.

DURABILITY: The mixer now has all metal gears and metal gear box. This unit has not had plastic gears for 5 years. The other common thread I saw in the negative reviews is the owners apparently either did not read the instructions, or thought that as bakers, they knew "better" than the instructions. (1) Never knead dough on a higher speed than "2". With other mixers which have less powerful motors and that old HOOK dough hook, the mixer had to use a higher power to produce the same torque. This mixer utilizes a new style of dough hook and the power of the mixer do a great job on the number 2 speed setting. And (2) do not knead the dough longer than 2 or 3 minutes. I have been making bread and pizza dough for years, and at first I was skeptical about the knead time as well. But after reading some of these reviews about motor overheating, once the dough was thoroughly mixed, I only let it knead for two minutes.

Color Name: Cinnamon
I would rate this appliance at a 3.5 out of 5 stars if you had that option.

NOISY!! Use ear protection. Otherwise the appliance works great.

I upgraded my 20+ year old Kitchen Aid 3.5 Qt. stand mixer, which still works, to this 6 Qt. model. I gave it a thorough testing, with my family's favorite cookie recipe which inludes 13 cups of dry ingredients - oatmeal, chocolate chips and such. This recipe has a very stiff heavy dough. It is wooden spoon breaker dough.

When my old mixer tries to mix this recipe, the dough spills over a bit from the top of the 3.5 qt bowl, and the chips stay mostly on the outside, between the dough and the bowl.

So I knew this was the perfect test recipe.

The 6-Quart bowl has lots mixing space. The dough came close to the top of the bowl during mixing, but did not spill over. I used the lowest speed to mix in the chocolate chips. The new mixer handled them gently and mixed them thoroughly. Every cookie had chips in them, down to the last bit of dough left in the mixing bowl.

The noise of the mixer is loud. It is the loudest appliance I have ever owned. If you are running it for a long period of time, for example, a stiff cookie dough, or the flour mill, you will most likely need ear protection. I do not have a decible meter in my kitchen, but I suspect this appliance exceeds the level recommended for home use. I did call KitchenAid customer Support regarding the noise, and was told yes, it is noisy, they know that, that it has been reported as sounding like an airplane's jet engine on a runway about to take off. (I might add that airplane's jet engine noise sounds like it's coming directly from the tarmac, and you are standing beside the engine during engine testing.
