Comment:
Frequent baker - yearly win prizes for baking for our county fair. I am not a fan of this mixer - a part broke off the on/off lever and I was told by customer service that I must purchase a repair evaluation kit and have the entire arm replaced to fix this, and pay for shipping the mixer to and from the repair center. Also, I am left handed, and it is awkward to add ingredients, turn the mixer on and off, the bowl is always positioned awkwardly, and I always seem to get dough on my hands when adding ingredients or when removing the beaters! When you add ingredients, they often rest on top of the beaters and you need to make a special effort to make sure they are incorporated. Again, maybe this is because I am left handed.... Never had a problem with my old Sunbeam Mixmaster!

Comment:
All our attachments lost their metallic finish in the dishwasher. When we complained we were pointed to fine print stating not to wash in dishwasher...who makes heavy duty equipment for cooking that cannot survive dishwasher? Now we have nothing but heavily oxidized aluminum attachments that cannot be used due to metal oxide loss from surface whenever touched. Now we have to pay $100 to replace attachments...dont get attachments with metal plate finish...get the white ones. Better yet...just buy a different brand that makes attachments of more durable finish that cannot come off.

Comment:
I think this mixer is great! I purchased it about a year ago -- the first stand mixer I ever owned -- when I decided I wanted to start baking my own bread, and cookies, cakes and other pastries as well. I also wanted to grind my own meat for hamburgers, sausage, hash, etc. And some day I might acquire the ice cream maker attachment, too. Thus, I would never have considered CR's top pick -- the Breville, which won't accommodate attachments. I am totally satisfied with my mixer's performance, and the learning curve was easy thanks to an excellent owner's manual. Sorry, CR, but I consider heavy to be a High, not a Low. To me, the KitchenAid's weight is an indication of its obvious durability. I expect my descendents will still be using it five generations hence. As for the low clearance for adding ingredients, that is easily addressed by using the tilt feature.
