Disappointed

By Tricia

Comments about KitchenAid 6 Quart Professional Stand Mixer:

I've always had a KitchAid Mixer. When I recently upgraded to the Professional 600 series, I was greatly disappointed in the workmanship of the product as I took it out of the box. It works well, but the finish is rough and everything seems loose. Shoddy workmanship.

LOVE MY MIXER

By TK

from Westlake, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 6 Quart Professional Stand Mixer:

This is my 3rd Kitchen aid mixer, my husband bought my first one 20 years ago for Christmas and it still works, I actually sold it to help pay for this one, my second mixer was bought for my cafe and I still have that one, but I am giving it to my Sister for her birthday, she has always wanted one. I love this one, it has so much more room, I can double and triple some of my recipes without any problems. The color is so beautiful and looks great in my kitchen.

Powerful, helpful machine.

By Yolk

Comments about KitchenAid 6 Quart Professional Stand Mixer:

Got this as a gift for my birthday and I could not have been happier. I've since been testing it with all my old favorite recipes- cookies, cakes, breads, etc. There isn't anything this machine hasn't handled beautifully! I also love the bowl-life feature specifically. Be sure to read through the booklet to know how to adjust recipes for using this machine- it will change mixing times in your old recipes. Also, before the first time you make something in it, check the clearence of the mixer blade from the bowl. The booklet warns that it may have been slightly adjusted while being transported, and that you may need to re-adjust yourself. It explains how to perfectly well in the booklet though- a valuable resource to have (recipes included!)

great time saver

By Jane

from Farmington, Ny

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 6 Quart Professional Stand Mixer:

I have a small business and bought this mixer 1 1/2 years ago. what a help it was, cutting mixing time in half. It worked great until a gear went in it. KitchenAid replaced it, only to have to send 3 replacement mixers until I finally got one that would work. Hoping to upgrade to a larger KitchenAid commercial mixer next year

Pro 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer: great power

By Sheila

from Newburyport, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 6 Quart Professional Stand Mixer:

I cook a lot & use this mixer at least 1-2 times per week. It can handle nearly anything I put into it. I am pleased to say it can handle the heaviest batters & doughs unlike most mixers. It can also handle easily the lightest of batters & meringues equally well.

The one thing that I would recommend is buying the extended warranty. It is MORE than worth it. Because I use it so frequently to make all sorts of breads, pastries, etc. I tend to wear out the motor about once every three years & with the warranty, it's a total replacement.

A beautiful and extremely functional machine!

By Roger

from Desoto TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 6 Quart Professional Stand Mixer:

I received this mixer about a week ago and it has exceeded my expectations. This mixer is replacing my 25+ year old classic (purchased in 1989) that is still going strong but no longer has the capacity I currently require. I have most of the attachments already but have seen a huge difference in the processing power of this "beast". My first project was to make a triple batch of a heavy French sour dough which this mixer didn't have any issue with (the classic would complain with a batch and a half about 1/2 way through the kneeding process).

Features I really like: direct drive, even though I've not had any issues with the classic, I imagine this feature should allow this machine to last me another 25+ years.
Larger motor - no complaining when kneeding large batches of thick dough.
Flip up accessory cover. I no longer have to be concerned about losing the cover (I never lost the one on the classic, but this feature is one more thing I don't have to worry about
Ability to use smaller bowl - love the 3qt add-on bowl
Doesn't get as hot as classic when using the grain mill for my breads (I grind most of my grains because my wife is gluten intolerant).
Powers through fresh pasta using pasta press - classic would complain and get much hotter.
I much prefer the bowl lift over the head tilt if the classic because over the years the head tilt has become loose and "rattles".
Love the 11 wire wisk add-on, much quicker whipped items (crimes, meringues etc.)
Although this unit is a little heavier than the classic, I'm sure this additional weight has been why this unit doesn't walk around on the counter.
I think I would have preferred the "DC" motor offered on the KSM models, but not being able to use KitchenAid or aftermarket bowl accessories (whips, scraper paddles etc) was a deal breaker on that model & the 7-8qt models are just way to expensive for me to justify that motor.

Overall, I'm expecting many years of satisfaction from this unit and would highly recommend this.
