Love it, Love it, Love it. The KitchenAid Stand Mixer is probably one of my favorite gifts ever. My husband got the stand mixer for me for Christmas. Since my husband knew that I planned on baking tons of Christmas cookes, he gave it to me a little early. Wow, I am so glad that he did.
This appliance really took most of the work out of baking those cookies. I could almost throw eveything into the bowl and let the machine do the work.
The model that I have came with the stand mixer, metal mixing bowl, a flat beater, a "C" dough hook and a wire beater. The only accessory that I chose to buy was the wide chute pouring shield. This does keep things from splattering our of the bowl while mixing.
While I do not have a need to use my KitchenAid Mixer everyday, it is incredibly convenient and easy to use when I need it. If you are an occasional baker, then this model is for you. This model also has a tilt feature for easier access to the mixing bowl.
I love this product. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed buying this mixer. I highly recommend the KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
