Since retiring, I have become a large scale baker and quasi-gourmet chef. Bought this mixer because of its bowl size and power. It easily and quietly mixes & kneads large batches of bread dough (6-8 loaves) and biscotti (8 doz). Come Thanksgiving it will get a workout mashing 8-10# of potatoes.We will keep our KA Artisan tilt head mixer for the smaller jobs or when making two types of icing for one cake. The Artisan is a great machine also, ours being used extensively since 2000.

I received my 7-Qt bowl mixer for Christmas 2013. I requested it and was excited to use it. I have my original Kitchen-Aid 5Qt. mixer that I received as a shower gift back in 1979. It still works and has worked like a horse all these years. I was hesitant about getting a new mixer for fear that the quality would not be as good as my old machine, and only did so because I really needed a larger capacity bowl. I am a bit disappointed,but not really surprised that the quality, in my opinion, is not the same. The first time I used the machine the tab behind the bowl that snaps the bowl in place vibrated loose, so much so that the bowl wobbles if you don't tighten it. This happens on a fairly regular basis. There are also times when I turn the machine on that it doesn't start immediately and need to turn it on and off a few times before it starts. What's up with that? There have also been times when the mixer is running that it will raise and lower the speed by itself almost like a power surge. My last comment is about the splash guard. Compared to my old machine it is very flimsy and I feel it will crack if it is not handled gently. All in all, the mixer does the job. I am very happy with the bowl capacity, it fits my needs better than anything else on the market. I will say though that taking it back to exchange for another one is on my to-do list, I feel this one is faulty. I guess that's what disappoints me. I really didn't expect the quality to be the same as my old machine, but for $600+ dollars I was hopeful. Just in case, I am not getting rid of my trusty old machine any time soon, unless it dies. Thanks for the opportunity to speak my piece. Sincerely Donna Benetatos

Great product. Love it

Comments about KitchenAid Proline Bowl Lift Red Stand Mixer:
Spent the week making cakes and bagels and bread. It was a joy. The only thing that had me somewhat worried was while baking a double batch of bagels. A very firm, gluten-rich dough. During several passes through with the hook, the motor seemed to stall, then power through. Is this part of the circuitry brain of the unit and a normal finding? Or, should I be concerned of a motor failure?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been waiting to buy a stand mixer. So when I did I bought the best one on the market! I am truly smitten with this device. I have been baking a mixing up a storm. It made my 6 weeks cake decorating class a breeze. Unlike others, I love the sound of mixer as it works and do not find it annoying at all. The machine is working and I find the sound soothing and reassuring that it is doing the work and not me. Don't know how I lived without it before. The scrapper-paddle attachment (purchased separately) is the best!!!
Great size and attachments!

Very sharp and responsive, powerful and larger than my previous KitchenAid, happy to be able to produce larger batches without dividing. Seems like they've perfected the Stand Mixer!
I love it

I love my kitchen aid pro line. I can make lots of dog treats and cookies. I am so happy that I purchase the kitchen aid pro line. It was well worth it.
Impressive on countertop

This is my second KitchenAid. Gave my very first one (still going strong) to a friend because I wanted a larger capacity mixing bowl.
Takes the manpower out of baking.
By Barb the Baker

I have had a KitchenAid mixer for many years. I have always loved it, but lately I have been making more breads. This model makes it easy to knead without any strain on the motor. It will make 4 loaves without a problem. I can also make 5-8 dozen large cookies at one time
Could not be happier
By Jason C

Did a ton of research and found this to be the best bang for the buck. My wife is in culinary school as a baking and pastries major so she is constantly experimenting and tweaking her recipes and this is the staple tool. Purchased this one after our 42 year old kitchenaid mixer finally died. Couldn't be happier!

I am so happy with this. I make food in regular and large quantities. Now when I make 6 loaves of bread it's ready to rise in minutes with no work or kneading from me. That saves time and sore shoulders! I show it to all my friends and family and now some of them want one.

I don't know how I got along so long without it. I have made home made linguine using the Pasta kneader/roller and linguine maker. Also the meringue for lemon meringue pie repeatedly. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
