The main problem I have with this mixer, and this is true for various other mixers, not only from kitchenaid, is the quality of the dough hook and paddle attachment that are included in the purchase.
If you do a search on Amazon for these two items, you’ll discover that there are two varieties of these attachments. The cheaper ones, which are the ones included with this mixer, are shiny grey metal. They run less than $20. Then there are the white, coated attachments, which are about 3 times the cost of the grey ones.
Why? Because if you put the grey ones in the dishwasher, or if you have washed them by hand many times, they become dull and coated with a dark grey powder. The powder comes off on everything it touches, including the dough or batter you would use it for.
The User’s Manual explains that they shouldn’t go in the dishwasher. Unfortunately, it lists three types of beaters. Only the grey ones have this problem. But because there are no photographs illustrating the difference between the burnished aluminum and the stainless steel ones, it’s easy to be confused.
Secondly, read the Users’ manual carefully! You cannot use the dough hook on settings higher than 2. And you cannot use it for more than 5 minutes.
I asked a company representative about this. She recommended that one use the paddle attachment to mix the dough and switch to the dough hook for kneading. She told me that 5 minutes using the dough hook on a kitchen aid mixer is equal to 10 minutes kneading with another mixer.
I haven’t myself performed any comparisons, but when I followed her instructions my dough came out beautifully.
So, on the whole I am very pleased with my Kitchenaid 600 Professional. I never thought I needed one until my husband bought me one several years ago. Now I’d find it difficult to give up!
-The motor is definitely more powerful than the regular kitchen aid (great for large batches of dough), and it holds more volume, so it's great for larger batches.
-It's very hard to push the bowl in... as in you really have to push hard - so much that I wonder if it's really good for the machine or if everything actually fits properly. And you also have to push with your hand in the bowl at the very bottom/center or it just won't lock into place. And if you take the bowl out and realize it needs more mixing, you have to stick your hand in your batter, because that's literally the only way to get the bowl to lock in.
-It's LOUD. Very, very loud.
-None of the attachments actually reach close enough to the bottom/sides of the bowl. So everything you make needs to be very large quantity or it won't mix well. More so than with the smaller kitchen aids. And even then, you constantly have to stop and scrape the sides with a spatula to make sure everything is getting mixed in.

I googled and saw that apparently it's supposed to be this loud... To be honest I wish it could be a bit quieter. I can understand that a machine like this will never be super quiet, but I do hope Kitchenaid puts some work on lowering the noise levels because damn! It feels like the machine is crying for help! I feel bad for it lol.
I'm glad i bought it on sale because if I had paid full price for it, this issue would have bothered me more. Come one KitchenAid, you can do better!
La usamos de forma diaria por severas horas sin problema!
Es Rapida, fuerte y estable.
Puedes tener cualquier tipo de masa, postre o pasta en el proceso, y no se mueve ni un cm de lugar al batir.
Tiene un color muy bonito, pero recomiendo lavar con esponja amarilla suave, ya que puede dañarse el acabado brillante.
Todo embona y funciona perfecto.
Sin duda Hablar de batidoras Kitchen Aid, es hablar de calidad y seguridad!
One caveat: this is not for home-style single loaf recipes. If you're planning to make small batches of cookies, muffins, breaks, etc., you may be sorely disappointed because this is designed to properly work medium to large loads. It can make dough for 6 loaves of bread and enough for 18 pizzas at once. When we want to mix smaller quantities, we use our KitchenAid Artisan series mixer instead.
We would definitely buy this item again.
I also received a bonus scraper paddle with my purchase. I used it to make a cookie dough, did not clear sides of bowl so well. Not so impressive, I will have to try it with other batters before I can fully judge its performance. My only complaint is that about a week or so after my purchase Amazon dropped the price by $50.
Would recommend this mixer.
