The perfect mixer

Best Uses
Dough
Comment:
I've seen reviews that have stated this unit leaks oil, it can't handle pizza dough or the unit rocked so violently while making pizza dough the user thought the unit was going to break. I made a double batch of pizza dough today, I used low speed per the instruction manual, it made it up my dough lickety split, no leaks....no rocking....no problems. I love this mixer!!! I had another mixer made by a manufacture that has been around for several decades and it couldn't hold a candle to this mixer. If you need a sturdy mixer that requires little to no attention from you while you are mixing this is the perfect unit.<br /><br />The only complaint that I have is I ordered this model off of Amazon's website and their colors of blue willow and cobalt blue were different than they were on Kitchenaid's website. I assumed Kitchenaid's website would have the true color on their color pallet, not true, at least regarding the two colors mentioned here. Amazon's pallet are more accurate, Kitchenaid has the colors reversed.<br /><br />The height and weight make it difficult to store. I did notice these stats prior to buying the unit but I felt it was worth mentioning. I guess you need the height and weight to keep the unit balanced and stable.

Comment:
Within a year or two of purchasing the mixer, it began to leak small amounts of oil into the mixing bowl between uses. I used my mixer 5-7 times a year. KitchenAid told me the machine could lose up to a quarter of a cup of oil. The oil leakage continued, so I gave the machine away and bought a hand mixer.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought the newest stand mixer 6 quart glass bowl about 6 months ago but it was hard for me to handle (a bit of arthritis) so the retailer graciously swapped it out for the 5 quart Artisan which is perfect for me. The first thing I made was Easter Bread. I used the dough hook and it came out great. With the tilt head I like the easy removal of hooks and how easy it is to clean underneath the head. I also like the way the bowl locks in the bottom with a slight turn of hand. The bowl is not heavy so its easy to move off the mixer and handle even if batter is in it. I like this mixer better then the newest 6 quart glass bowl I sent back to the retailer. The head did not tilt back which made cleaning harder underneath after you removed the hook. Also on the newer model you have to hold the (very heavy) glass bowl press to back and lock and then anchor it over a bolt on each side. I had a hard time lining it up. I was so happy to send it back and get this Artisan 5 quart bowl. I also called Kitchenaide and they said this model sells the most even over the 5 qt glass bowl. I was skeptical when I bought this Artisian 5 quart. I thought it would be hard to handle as the new model but I was so surprised and I can't say enough of how well it operates,handles and cleanup is a breeze. I highly recommend this particular stand mixxer for older and younger folks.
