I LOVE this new KitchenAid mixer!! I chose this model primarily for its large capacity bowl and also because the bowl lifts to the mixer and the mixer head doesn't have to be lifted up. Although it is a couple of inches taller than the KitchenAid Artisan mixer, I am able to leave it on my counter under my cupboards and just slide it forward a bit when I want to use it. Because the Artisan mixer head lifts up, it actually becomes a "bigger" machine when the head is tilted. I worried it might be a nuisance having to remove the paddle/hook before removing the bowl, but it becomes second nature once you start using the mixer. It's definitely not a concern. On the other hand, it has taken me a bit longer to get used to lining up the three points on the bowl so it will "snap/lock" in place.

Although there is just my husband and myself at home now, when we get together we are a family of 19 so many of our recipes are done in big batches. I did all my holiday baking (as well as mashing a huge quantity potatoes for Christmas dinner) with my new mixer and wished I had bought it years ago.

One of my big concerns when I made this purchase, was what color "pearl metallic" really was. I checked numerous blogs and websites (both Canadian and US, visited several local stores and couldn't find a clear description). I was completely happy when it arrived...pearl metallic is a soft medium grey color...very rich (similar to the dark peuter color)...with a nice (easy to clean) glossy sheen. The service from Amazon.ca was amazing as well. I placed my order late Thursday evening and the mixer arrived on Tuesday afternoon. It was shipped from Mississauga to Thunder Bay (1200 miles)....free shipping and delivered right to my front door.

I do think KitchenAid should rethink their decision to include the mixer blades and hooks that are NOT dishwasher proof with this model. I have purchased an extra paddle that IS dishwasher proof (another $35 on sale!!). I know it's just a matter of time before I accidentally load the whisk or blades in the dishwasher (they look like they should be dishwasher proof....but my daughter has this mixer as well.....and I know for certain they are NOT!!...expensive lesson!!).

This mixer was purchased for us by my grandmother as a wedding gift, and we couldn't be happier with it. It has been used at least twice a week since we received it two months ago without any issues or disappointment. This is defintely a usable small appliance, and not one that will collect dust.

We have processed various mixtures with the machine and have had great success. It can handle a relatively large cookie batter recipe with ease, and a 6 cup mixture of notoriously difficult to knead pasta dough was mixed with moderate loading on the motor. It does a fantastic job of kneading bread dough, again with the included dough hook. The beater attachment works very well for high speed frothing and mixing of icings and meringues. Mixing of a more dry, sticky recipe like those for granola bars caused a lot of the ingredients to gather on the paddle attachment, but we found the remedy for this to be a short burst at a higher speed to "clean" the paddle off. At times it seems a little weak in the lowest speed setting with really heavy mixes, but bumping it up one level seems to solve this problem and allow it to operate normally without excessive strain and noise.

The only part of the machine we could do without is the clear plastic bowl shield. We do not find a lot of use for a shield, as by controlling the speed one can avoid the messes of ingredients coming out of the bowl. We found it to be more of an inconvenience than useful, and the only time it is on the bowl is when the machine is not in use!

Aesthetically, it is very pleasing. The pearl metallic colour and its shape compliment our modern kitchen well. It appears robust in design, and there is no straining or flexing of the machine during loading or operation.

Overall, we view this machine as an excellent purchase and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The heavily discounted price at Amazon makes it a much more worthy purchase than some of other Kitchenaid models that look great but fall short in the motor and bowl size area, yet still cost as much as the this unit in a store. Happy mixing!

I have been looking at this pro 600 model for a while and hoping I would find it for less than $699.00 CD. Thank you amazon.ca!!!!
At $440. (this includes taxes) It was a huge bargain. I have arthritis and kneeding large batches of dough was becoming difficult. This machine handles a 2.5 Kilograms of flour. I kneed it in my kitchen aid. The machine is stable and does not rock around my counter top.I highly recommend this machine. Amazon.ca thank you for the speedy delivery. Got it in about three days. Love it!!!

I invested in this mixer about a week ago now, and the only problem is, I didn't do it SOONER! I have never made bread before in my life, and all of a sudden, I am able to make fresh cinnamon buns, and my own cinnamon/raisin bread, and yes even regular old white bread so easily without killing yourself with all that messy kneading cuz the machine doez it or you. And WELL I might add! The ton of cookies I usually make over the christmas holidays this year, promise to be a breeze!

Just got my new mixer and LOVE IT!!!! it came on the first day that amazon said it would but it was still hard waiting. the price was awesome especially with free shipping. made my first double batch of chocolate chip cookies and i didn't have to do a single thing but put my ingredients in. i had a stupid little mixer before this one and always had to be scraping down the bowl and half mixing stuff. i have a business and do quite a bit of baking. i make brownies, cookies, gluten free pizza dough and many other things. i am very excited to make a triple batch of brownies. i was making double batches before and it was still so tricky adding the flour at the end. i love the little cover as it keeps flour from flying around! i would highly recommend this mixer to everyone. love the colour too. and it fits right on my counter and is not very heavy at all. i think my crappy little mixer was heavier! Hope this helps.

I just purchased my very first KitchenAid professional 600 and I love it! It will take up to 14 cups of flour but I have only used with 10 cups of flour when I bake my bread. It has no problem handling that! It is a heavy mixer about 26 pound. I could move it but I find myself using it every couple of days. I don't find it noisy either.
I purchased this mixer off of Amazon and got a fantastic deal, plus free shipping and a mail-in rebate! It was a deal I could not resist! Amazon shipped it out very quickly!
Well, now that I am retired I treated myself to one! I have baked bread, buns and cookies all in one day just because the KA makes it so easy! I love the empire red colour too! Would recommend this product!

I have been dreaming about a KitchenAid mixer since I started baking as a child. Finally I was gifted one and my life is complete! I frequently break simple handheld mixers with the amount I use them. I KitchenAid Pro 600 Series is holding up beyond my expectations. I am a very happy baker now!

I've always wanted a good quality stand mixer and when I saw the Pro 600 on sale, I decided to treat myself. The mixer does not disappoint! My use for it is not on a professional scale but I have found it to be great with my single batch mixtures, I just have to scrape the sides of the bowl to catch any unmixed ingredients. It is a heavy unit so having room on the countertop works best. Absolutely love it!
