I have owned my Pro 600 for just over five years. It was great for the first 15 months. Then a gear in the transmission broke. The mixer was compleatly dead and needed service.
We took it to the local (Winston Salem, NC) KitchenAid repair station. After a wait of three months and a bill of $145, we finally got our mixer back. Only to find that it now dribbled and spit dark GREASE into the bowl whenever it was turned on.
Back to the repair station and a wait of another 7 1/2 weeks and ANOTHER $120. Now that it is back, it still spits grease into the bowl (just slightly less than it did before)....and now also makes a racket so loud the dogs howl and run to the other end of the house any time it is turned on.
I called KitchenAid about the matter. They told me that they would not second guess their repair station....and therefore would not lift a finger to help us nor replace their clearly defective mixer.
I am not about to spend ANOTHER $125+ for them to take another stab at it because they obviously either cannot...or don't want to...fix it. I have already paid very nearly as much in repair charges as I paid for the mixer brand new. What would the point be?
That was almost four years ago. My Pro 600, which I paid a dear fortune for, has sat on the shelf compleatly useless ever since.
I am retired and on a fixed income now....I can't afford to replace it...with a KitchenAId or anything else.
And I can't risk using it....grease in our food surely would be toxic, or worse. And that racket clearly signals that there are other problems either caused or un-addressed (I suspect the former) by KitchenAids' incompetent repair station.
So...if I need a mixer, it's either my Viking stick blender or my venerable 35 year old GE hand mixer which I have had since college and is still going strong. If either of these won't fit the bill...I just can't make it.
Thanks KitchenAid. I hope you enjoy the money we paid to buy your lemon and the equal amount we paid to your incompetent repair station in wasted repair charges.
I will never again EVER purchase ANY product with a KitchenAid badge on it. And I strongly urge anyone considering such a purchase to take my experience with this company to heart.
(Of course, now I have said that I am sure that all of this will never see the light of day. Bad for business, of course
These kitchenaid is the BEST! the motor is powerful enough to make cream cheese frosting with the butter and cream cheese straight of the fridge. I also love the bowl, its great to use as a double boiler for meringues and chocolate...... its not cheap but you only buy it once
I've had three KitchenAid mixers in my house. The first one was the smallest version, in bright red. It was actually a Christmas present to my 7th grade son, who was taking a cooking class at the Middle School. He has since graduated from college, and took the mixer with him. The second was passed on to me after my Mother died, and then quickly went to my daughter for sentimental reasons. Now, I finally have my own KitchenAid, and I bought the heavy duty version. I love it! No mater what I want to make, the heavy duty motor can handle it. The very best mixer out there
Finally I got my KitchenAid mixer! I could not be happier about this tool. Such a time saiver plus it does all the job for you. Never been easier to make a bread, or cake, or whipping cream. Very powerful but you can control its power by switching to different speed. Very slick stainless steel finish it matches my kitchen perfectly. The buttom line is if you cook, you need this mixer
We have 2 5qt, 1 6qt and 1 7qt mixer, of these the 7qt is the work horse. I make all the bread for our home and I wore the gears out in just over 1 year. I ordered the replacement and did the repair myself but still disapointed in this one. It is also the noisiest of the 4 mixers. Spend the extra $100 and buy the 7qt. If you do not own the 6qt you will never know the difference but take my word this mixer is not the best KitchenAid stand mixer
I have owned my Pro 600 for just over 6 years. The 1st year was good, didn't give me any problem but from there the gear in the transmission broke. Then the mixer was compleatly dead. My husband bought parts fixed for me, I used it for 5 month, broken again, he fixed aging... He had fixing this thing for 4 times already. Now, is broken aging!!! This time, my husband said I am no going to fix your mixer anymore! He is MAD and I am too. I need a new one but I don't know what mixer I am going to buy now..
Can I use this overseas? Such as south Korea? They use 110W over there. Can I just use the converter to use this?
