It was an absolute pleasure just opening the box up that it came in. It came just as the seller described, brand new and shiny red. I look forward to years of use and everyday I admire it in my kitchen!
No new Whirlpool-built KitchenAid mixer will ever have the quality or anywhere near the lifespan of the old Hobart-built ones. That's a fact. But they are still the best for the money especially if you are too smart to pay retail.
As far as "plastic" gears go, this has been done in Kitchenaid mixers for many decades. It has nothing to do with being cheap. There is only ONE non-metal gear, it is nylon, not plastic. Its designed purpose is to strip out and fail instead of allowing whatever the problem is to bind the motor and ruin it. Without a nylon gear, dropping a spoon into the mixer would destroy the motor in seconds. Would you rather replace the motor or a little gear?
For the latter receipe, I noticed that its motor got rather hot with a load about 1.5 lb or less, which I considered a light load. I had more expectations about its ability to manage heavier loads.
The flat beater, the dough hook, and the wire whip worked just fine, but the pouring shield was useless. It rattled and bumped a lot from the bowl.
I would classify this appliance in the amateur side rather than in the Pro side.
Thanks for reading my review
