After my hand mixer died a friend gave me the Kitchenaid 275 Watts Stand Mixer, I'd always wanted a Kitchenaid mixer.  She taught me how to use it and I was off!  I found some good and some "improvements" i would have made.

Pros - I loved being able to put in my ingredients and walk away.  I love the large bowl, it's easy to "lock" in.  It head is easy to lift and the speeds are easy to select.

Cons - I wish this model had the plastic bowl cover that makes it easy to add ingredients.  You can buy them separate, I recommend it.  The other con is the big one for me, there is a spot at the bottom of the bowl that doesn't get mixed.  Once it's all mixed, you have to turn the bowl slightly and let the beaters hit the spot.  Which makes me wonder would I have been better just using a cheap hand mixer?

Now I do know there are a lot of great attachments for the Kitchenaid Mixers, however at a basic level I'd save your money.  If you don't plan to but the attachments skip this model.

One of my biggest goals in life is to own a Kitchen Aid Standmixer. I know that sounds silly but I bake alot and the mixer makes a huge difference in taste and efficiency. While I wait and save up to buy one of my own, I want the big one, I am borrowing my mother's mixer. She has the bottom of the line model with only 4.5 quart capacity and 275 watts. It's not the watts that kills me or even the size really but the quality. the head of her mixer shakes when it mixes which makes alot of noise and doens't feel like it mixes properly. I've used a few different models of this product and the higher end ones work much better. Also you can't really do double batches of cookies because of the size but if you don't bake that much then you probably wont notice that at all. I also like the higher models because they have more color options. I'm a sucker for colored mixers what can I say. Overall if you bake get a stand mixer. If you get one make sure it's a kitchen aid but pay the extra bucks and get the mid level or pro version of this mixer. It will be worth every penny and last you forever.

Love using this for all my baking needs. Nice to be able to multi task while it mixes on its own. Great capacity for recipes. Hard to store and heavy though.

    I have always wanted a stand mixer. After trying some other brands and not finding the features I wanted, I finally got my Kitchenaid. This is the best purchase I have ever made. I'm so excited to grow old with this mixer. My only complaint is that it didn't come with a glass bowl with a handle like some other models. Oh well, will just have to upgrade my Bowl is all.

    This mixers mixes your product evenly and it is easy to operate. You can adjust the speed easily with just a slide of the power speed adjuster. The mixer has a lock to lock the head of the mixer in place and comes with three types of mixer attachment wands. Its can be quickly cleaned just by removing the bowl out of position. You can mix a larger quanity with this mixer for your everyday cooking needs. Its also runs very quietly and doesnt make much noise. The best part of this mixer is that there are many attachments available for purchase that can turn this mixer into a grinder, ice cream maker, juicer, pasta maker and so own. The attachments save you from having to have several bulky products when you can just transform this into another gadgets.

    I recieved this mixer as a present for christmas. I had been wanting one for years. I do a lot of from scratch cooking and baking. I cried tears of joy when i opened this beauty. It is the pearl of my kitchen. I love this mixer and i try to find recipes just to use it. We make a lot of pizza for dinner and this makes it so much easier to mix my doughs.

    Comments about KitchenAid Classic Plus 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer:

    My mixer was great until I left it sitting on top of the counter that was over the dishwasher. After about 2 weeks I went back to use it and it started dripping liquified grease into my cake mix. It continued to drip for days, even after I moved it. I called the company and was told it was my fault for setting it where I did. It would have cost more to repair than what was paid for it. Yes, it was my fault I guess so I replaced it with a different brand.

    Brought Back My Love For Baking

    Comments about KitchenAid Classic Plus 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer:

    I knew that I didn't really need a stand mixer but after I visited my sister one day and watching her use her stand mixer with ease, I decided I just had to buy one. KitchenAid is a well known brand and Cooks Illustrated recommended this one, the KitchenAid Classic Plus. I bought the pro series because it has a better dough hook, metal gearbox and more power with a larger bowl. Now I know this isn't an industrial style stand mixer but it's very close to it. I like the tilt head and the number of attachments that can be used with this stand mixer. I used to love making bread, and now since I purchased this product I'm baking bread at least once a week. I'm amazed at how quick I'm able to mix, the engine is powerful! It beats using a hand mixer, I'm able to make frosting, whipped cream, cake, cream cheese dip, and the the texture is way better than if I used a standard hand mixer. Cleaning is a breeze, and the deep bowl prevents a huge mess when mixing. The Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer has become one of my most prized possession in my kitchen. I've rekindled my love for baking which I had lost so many years ago. Having children makes it hard to cook from scratch, they are always underneath me and having this monster mixer has made it easier, no more back breaking kneading dough. My family is happy tasting the new things I cook, so it's a win win situation. I knew this was a little above my budget but I'm so glad I purchased it because it's so worth the price!

    A little pricey, but wonderful mixer

    Comments about KitchenAid Classic Plus 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer:

    I give this product a seven because it works wonderfully, I just thought it was a bit pricey. I do love though that I can mix so much at one time. This product is sure to make big batches of anything you would like and sure to be used for a long period of time. I have had mine for a while now and it still works as well as the day I bought it.

    Mixing Performance
    It mixes everything wonderfully! I have made so many different things in mine. I have made cookies, biscuits, brownies, so many wonderful things and I have never seen any clumps. The mixing performance on this is wonderful.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Just like all mixers it is very easy to clean.

    Ease of Use
    This is very easy to use. I just use the mixing bowl as my ingredients bowl and just place it under the mixer and turn it on. The settings are nice and easy.

    Design
    This product I believe looks like any other mixer. I don't really like to leave it out because I don't like how it looks on my counter. I would have liked a more sophisticated design.

    Durability
    I have only had this mixer since Christmas but it still works as well as the day I opened it.

    Comments about KitchenAid Classic Plus 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer:

    I recently received this as a Mother's Day gift because it was something that I always wanted. I really like the power that this mixer has. It doesn't take me long to make my cakes or other dessert that I make. I also love the attachments that comes along with it. Now I am able to do a lot more when I am making my desserts and other meals. My favorite thing to do with this mixer would be to make all of my cakes with it. Along with making my cookie mixer. I've had made cakes that didn't take forever to make. I have also put the bowls and the rest of the in the dishwasher and I can't believe how clean they came out. I also have a kitchenaid hand mixer and I love them both. I would recommend this has a great present. I am planning on putting my hand mixer away for awhile and this will be my go to mixer for now on. I probably won't be using my hand mixer ever again. I can't to use it to make pizza dough with it
