Works like a charm

published

Great mixer would thoroughly recommend. My wife uses this all the time to make cakes and muffins. It is very easy to operate and the old school mechanisms to tilt and adjust the speed make this really easy to use. Had slight issue when we first bought with getting the beaters off but it was repaired and has not been a problem since,

Great to use but what about the safety features?

published

I bought the Kitchen Aid Artisian two years ago. Whilst I love using it, since having a child I'm questioning the safety features on this product. Often times I've been caught out with raising the head and accidentally knocking the slide which activates the power and have had the beaters spin around in the air. I was wondering why they don't have a locking mechanism on the unit or a safety feature in place. When the unit head is raised it doesn't power up? Seems simple. My mums 1970 era Kenwood won't work until everything is locked in. Maybe Kitchen Aid can look at putting some safety features in place for upgraded models.

Terrible customer service

published

While cleaning my mixer I noticed a slit in the power cord down to the electrical wires, I searched for replacement cords and found one, but would cost over $70 to replace, they suggested I contact customer service as the mixer was still under warranty. Bad mistake, after waiting days they said it was NOT a 'manufacturing' fault so basically tough luck. I believed it happened when the item was packaged with the weight of the mixer on the cord. I am left with forking out more money after spending over $700 or risk electrocution from a company that doesn't care about their customers.

Kitchen aid love grows stronger!

published

Best kitchen appliance, I was skeptical about this machine, but it is truly worth every penny. I use it at least once a week and my cakes come out much more better. I also use to make great stuffing's. The kitchen aid looks so beautiful in my kitchen it really is kitchen eye candy. The Kitchen aid items are heavy but that is expected of a good quality product.

Best kitchen item!

published

I absolutely love my kitchenaid mixer, it is strong and sturdy, handles everything with ease. I have used it for baking, dough making, mincing (with the attachment), whipping cream and egg whites to perfection. I could not live without it now i have it. My hand held beaters have been thrown in the bin! Do yourself a favour and by one.

Love it & great service from Kitchenaid

published

Love my mixer, it has worked well over the last 7.5 years, use it for cakes, great at egg whites, and I regularly do pizza dough in it - enought to make 3 pizza bases per batch and its lovely to have a mixer that doesn't hop all over the bench when doing dough like my old cheap model did. Also get a lot of use out of the pasta attachment.

The small lever arm on the side cracked off after 7 years of heavy use - this didn't make the machine un-usable, just a little less comfortable on the fingers. I wasn't able to contact kitchenaid about it until the machine was about 2 months out of warranty (as I'd just had a baby when it happened so was preoccupied), but they still kindly agreed to cover the repair under warranty - great service :-)

never again !!

Lives up to its reputation!

published

Love, love, love my KitchenAid mixer. Met all my expectations. Mixes cakes beautifully, perfectly whips egg whites & cream. Have also bought the food grinder/mincer & slicer/shredder attachments & they work exceptionally well also. Well worth the price & looks beautiful on my kitchen bench.

Love it (but is expensive!)

published

I'm in love with my kitchenaid. The first time I used it to whip cream it turned into butter as I didn't realise how quickly it would whip up (after having only had a hand-held electric beater previously). I found it hard deciding on what colour to get - I ended up with the red but now wish that I had the ice blue. The only downside is the cost (and the accessories are quite expensive as well) but I feel that it's definitely worth it if you can afford it!

Love it

published

I have had mine for just over 5 years now and I absolutely love my KitchenAid Artisan mixer. Have not had a single problem with it so far. Definately worth every single cent. Use it for making cake batter, buttercream icing, whipping cream and even make mashed potatoes in it, and the list is endless. I would definately recommend it to anyone thinking of purchasing one.

Not just a pretty mixer

published

Bought one of these after my Sunbeam finally packed it in. What can I say, stay away from the pretend red ones and stick with the original.

Terrible Quality and Worthless Warranty

published

Perfect

published

I have a kitchenaid food processor and have been wanting a stand mixer for years and now I finally have one. i have only used it once so far but I am very impressed. It's solid looks beautiful on my bench. It's quiet to use and comes with a whisk, beater and dough hook which will be very handy
Solid well made, easy to clean, stylist and i can add attachments easily ie: mincer/grinder
nothing so far

Very Pretty but not that efficient

published

I love the look of my Kitchen Aid but I've found that the beaters don't reach the edge of the bowl, even with the rubber attached. I am constantly having to stop the machine take out the bowl and scrape down the sides.... constantly. It makes using the machine a chore. It's such a shame because it looks lovely. I also bought the vegetable chopper and noticed that I had to tilt the machine to make the carrots come out. If I didn't tilt the machine the carrots blocked the shute.
Colour and cuteness
Leaves food build up on the edges of the bowl.

I am so impressed....

published

I couldn't wait for my Kitchenaid to arrive and I just loved it from the minute I opened the box. It was so well packaged which was great too. I had a baking day to try it out. The focaccia bread was the best I have ever made. I made two sponge cakes and they are so so light. I have never been able to get enough air into the mix before but these are wonderful. I also whipped marshmallow and the same mixture I usually use was this time nearly double in volume and so quick to mix too. I just love it. Wish I had bought one many years ago.
I found the bigger motor meant the machine didn't work so hard to achieve great results

Misselleau, try contacting Kitchenaid Australia and they will give you instructions on a screw to turn to fix the beater height, which will fix the head lock down. After a few years mine did the same. It's as good as new now :)
