I loved using this mixer for double batches of cookies. Very powerful, and gets large batches of dough evenly mixed. I came home one day and found the mixer on the floor. It was hot to the touch and the attachments (which had been laying inside the bowl for storage) were completely mangled. No one was home, not pets were in the house. How the machine managed to kick on is a complete mystery. The motor still works fine and the machine itself survived quite a fall off the counter. However, I'm unable to find replacement attachments.

I do a lot of baking, especially yeast bread, and this mixer has the power to mix and knead two loaves, and the 5-qt bowl easily accommodates dough for them. My only real ding would be that apparently attachments are unavailable from Kenmore, and no information is available whether KitchenAid attachments will fit the attachment hub, and they're a little expensive to test out. I would like to make pasta, grind meat and grain and make ice cream, but my hands are tied by this. Otherwise, great!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
