Top Customer Reviews
1. The first one I received has a motor issue and makes a loud grinding noise and smells like the motor is burning up. It was also missing a little paint but the antique gold color and texture were as pictured. I sent for a replacement.
2. The replacement mixer, for the mixer I just discussed, is a mess! Its pieces are not put together correctly and their are large gaps between the silver metal pieces and the copper parts. It looks like it was taken apart with difficulty putting it back together.
3. The replacement is a completely different color antique gold than the first one I received. The replacement is also lacking the cool texture the first one I received had. These look completely different from each other.
4. The replacement had a wad of dried white goop in the glass bowl. I assume this to be a food remnant.
Amazon is sending a third replacement. At this point I'm not even sure I want this anymore. If these are not used/refurbished then KitchenAid has some terrible quality control issues that they are overlooking. This is such a shame as I have wanted one of these so badly for the past 20 years.
UPDATE: The third KA mixer I received made a horrible clicking noise as if something in the inside of the machine is loose!!! This third machine is also lacking in the texture of the original machine I received! I am sending this back!! I also ordered this exact same model in the antique copper color from Macy's. It is perfect! It sounds normal. No grinding or clicking. It is also the correct shade of antique gold with the proper grained texture. Now I know Amazon is selling refurbished or factory seconds (the machines that didn't make the cut).
Do you need a stand mixer? No, probably not, but it sure takes the grunt work out of stirring and kneading. It also mixes more consistently than I could by hand and classes up the counter.
If you're set on a stand mixer, should you buy this one? Maybe. It's not designed for huge amounts of heavy dough or constant use. It's built well, but it's not an industrial machine. It audibly strains with a double helping of cookie dough (around 25 oz of flour) and kneading wet, thick pizza dough. With that sort of load, there's no speed difference between setting 6 and 10, though of course you'd never knead that fast anyway.
KitchenAid has some mixers that are ostensibly a bit stronger. They're all lift-style: instead of tilting the head back, the head sits higher and you raise and lower the bowl. I prefer the tilt-head style. The paddles never get out of the way with the bowl-lift, getting the bowl to lock in place is a jerky movement, and it takes up a lot of vertical counter space. What you do get for the extra cost of the Pro series is a better dough hook, a metal gearbox, more power, and a slightly larger bowl. Even these higher-power mixers will fall short of alternatives from Bosch and Electrolux for serious breadmaking, however.
If you go the other direction with the cheaper Classic Plus, you lose 1/2 QT of bowl capacity, a handle on the bowl, the splash guard, and color choices besides white. Otherwise, it's functionally identical to this model and about the same power. This mixer also came with a recipe book in addition to the splash guard. I haven't used either. The guard is a fiddly thing, you spill less just tilting the mixer up and dumping your ingredients in. I do think the extra 1/2 quart and the handle are worth something though (especially for double recipes) and could justify opting for the Artisan.
This particular model has a glass bowl relative to the more popular metal style. The glass is a lot heavier and less durable, but it does have measuring units and a pouring spout. The translucency solves a problem that really isn't a problem. Likewise, for measuring, I have my metal bowl on top of a kitchen scale because doughs turn out more consistent if I go by ounces instead of volume. Different recipes may benefit more.
There's a lot of talk about Hobart units. Prior to about 1985, these mixers were made by Hobart, a supplier of industrial kitchen equipment. Later models are made by Whirlpool. There's some debate whether the new models are as good as the old ones, particularly in regard to the gearbox. My take is that if you can find an old Hobart (e.g., K4SS, K5-A, K5SS with a metal 'Hobart' placard) and it runs well, it's likely to keep running well no matter what you throw at it. But it won't be as clean and may not fit certain new bowls, paddles, or attachments.
New or old, these KitchenAid mixers are dead-simple to repair. The motor brushes are replaceable without dismantling the unit ($10 or so and hidden beneath the black circular covers), the speed governor is mechanically adjustable, and the gearbox is straightforward and easily accessible. This means that they're intriguing on the used market. People receive them as gifts and put them in the local classifieds with minimal use or minor flaws you can fix. Typical transaction prices are $125-$175, and I've seen this mixer as low as $75. For new units, Kohls has them on sale quite often.

If you'd rather have a more powerful bowl lift mixer, KitchenAid's refurbished store often has the Heavy Duty Series for as little as $175 (if you Google a coupon code). It's a doppelganger for the Pro 5 and includes the superior spiral dough hook. Whatever you buy, try to have it on (even with an empty bowl) for a few minutes at least once a week or two. The oil-leak problem occurs when the oil breaks down from disuse. If the mixer runs with any frequency, you'll never encounter it.
Love the color and that it has a glass bowl
It is not very loud
Did I mention the glass bowl?
The reason for my 4* instead of 5*s - The utensils feel cheap. They are not the white coated utensils but rather a cheap looking, lighter weight version. Don't find that very cool - particularly with regards to the dough hook, (which, admittedly, I haven't used yet). It is a very expensive purchase so I would have hoped for something a bit more 'high end'
I'll make sure to update this review in a few weeks, but so far:
One pumpkin pie - Awesome
One Lemon Cake - Awesome
One Rum Cake - Awesome
One crushed potatoes and garlic - Awesome
