Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and quiet unit. We love our mixer. We had an accolade tilt head with a 400W motor (still works, we gave to my mother after 10 years of use) but this machine is so much quieter with the DC motor.. at level 10 you can have a conversation still vs a yelling match. The chrome hub just adds a nice touch of elegance. We leave it on the counter top since it's quite heavy but does look great with the glass bowl. Now the unit I found wasn't so heavy that you cant move/tuck it away, but could be for some folks. I also purchased the 3Qt bowl and whip for smaller batches and a 6qt stainless steel bowl. Yes, the beater doesn't fully touch the bottom .. hence why i got the smaller bowl for the smaller / liquid jobs. Only glitch I had was putting in the large SS bowl... took mew a few minutes but I think its because the back tab is still new and stiff. Best of all was the price. An authorized dealer was selling them on eBay and eBay had a promotion so my final price with tax and delivery was only $510 Canadian. The 2 extra bows I mentioned above I got directly from kitchenaid Canada, on sale as well.. with delivery and tax, for $210. I still have my attachments from my previous mixer thus I expect this will my last mixer I have to buy (I'm a light user.. once a week.. yes I know it was overkill).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet & Powerful The reviews were right! This machine runs very quietly while executing a lot of power to mix cookie batters and large yeast bread batches. I'm so happy that I opted for this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use I received this stand mixer as an upgrade from my previous model and am extremely happy with it. It is quieter than the previous model, the bowl lift is very smooth to move, and I love that I am able to see my ingredients in the bowl to ensure even mixing. I used it for egg whites and had to use the beater and then the wire whisk in order to whip them, but even a heavy dough for cookies has been no problem for this machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixer that only mixes in middle of bowl I was hoping to get more use out of this machine and buy extra accessories. Until I find a way to mix my ingredients without removing the bow and doing it by hand. I cannot justify to cost. Kitchenaid do you have a fix for this machine?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of power Received this as a gift a few weeks ago since my 1st one died after 15 years of great times. The bowl is much bigger which is great for my large batches but it is heavy and I only have the option of one size rather than the two bowls of my previous Kitchen Aid tilt head. The extra power is great; it mixes with much ease. So far, very happy with my new mixer. Only time will tell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Machine I purchased this a month ago. Good machine. Does everything I need it to do. Glass bowl is a little heavy. I wish they made a stainless bowl to fit this machine. The beater clicks when using, otherwise pretty quiet.
