I love my new KitchenAid mixer and really appreciate the larger bowl. I usually make double recipes of cookies, muffins, and breads. I was using my old KitchenAid with the 5 quart bowl to mix up the "liquids" (butter, sugar, eggs) with the extras like bran, oatmeal, etc., and then would add it to a large bowl of the dry ingredients to finish mixing by hand. "By hand" is getting harder all the time with age and arthritis. So I finally talked myself into the bigger, more powerful mixer. But...the beater just isn't big enough, so I am constantly having to scrape down the sides and trying to get what's dry and loose in the bottom of the bowl to mix with the rest of the batter. So I'm still mixing by hand a bit and still getting an uneven mix. But... the "better beater" to make my batters better is another $50! I am refusing to spend more than I have already. I would have thought that a small appliance that cost as much as some of my large appliances would have come complete with everything it needed to work right. I knew when I ordered it that the better beater wasn't included, but what I didn't know was how poorly the regular beater would work (not as well as my old, smaller one). If fact, I'm not sure the new one is any bigger than my old one (which I gave away to a very happy recipient) that fit the smaller bowl better. There is at least a 1/2 inch gap from the new beater edge to the big bowl edge. I think with a better beater, my new red mixer would be PERFECT!

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

Comments about KitchenAid Proline Bowl Lift Sugar Pearl Stand Mixer:
Bread making is so much easier and faster since it is a bigger capacity bowl and stronger motor to handle dough. Would have to mix several batches prior to buying this pro line model. Absolutely stoked and excited about my new toy!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Must have for anyone who bakes!

Comments about KitchenAid Proline Bowl Lift Red Stand Mixer:
I am a professional baker and own my second bakery now. I have used professional commercial equipment and other kitchenaid mixers. When my 5qt's motor died after many years of service (in a professional kitchen with daily use) it was time for me to upgrade and am I glad I did! The 7qt is a diamond mixing machine. It's so easy to use. It's so easy to clean. I love the plastic guard - trust me I know how to make a mess but this machine is powerful and quiet. I am so very happy with my purchase and look forward to buying a second one in the near future. If you can only have one machine in your kitchen - better make it a kitchenaid. They are built solid and they are built to last.
Love This Mixer
from Coll Ridge, WV
I used to have a refurbished KitchenAid Professional 5.5, and it was loud and did not seem to handle bread dough real well. I ordered the KitchenAid Pro Series 7 qt. and to my surprise it is much quieter and handles bread dough better than the lower wattage mixers. I love my mixer and when this one dies, I will be purchasing another KitchenAid Mixer. The attachments are very easy to clean and work well. I would like to see a glass bowl made for the Pro Series Bowl Life Series so I could purchase it. All in All I am very happy with my purchase and the fact that where I purchased my mixer stands behind their products 100%, that makes me more at ease if something were to go wrong with it, they will replace it, or let's just say, that is what I was told.
Great product great people

Service and delivery comments:
I can't say enough about the service at ABT! The best and the reason I keep buying from them!!

Twenty-one years ago, I purchased a Kitchenaid stand mixer. I had developed "tennis elbow" and could barely pick up a bowl much less do any stirring and mixing. It became the best kitchen investment I ever made. When we remodeled our kitchen, a dedicated cabinet was built for the mixer and other appliances. It wasn't long before I decided to just leave the mixer on the counter as it was used numerous times a week. After all these years, the mixer has worked well without any issues. This last summer, I upgraded to the Pro Line Model in that beautiful pearl white. Now I can make double and triple batches of cookies, desserts and pasta for the holidays! I love both my Kitchenaid mixers (as well as my double-drawer Kitchenaid dishwasher). Thank you, Kitchenaid!
Best kitchen appliance ever!
from Johnson City, TN
I went from a Kitchenaid Artisan stand mixer to this Pro version from Kitchenaid and couldn't be happier about the change. Was a little nervous that I would not like this one as well as the beloved Artisan that I have had for years, but I can tell you that I like it a hundred times more. This mixer is very quiet compared to my old one. It is heavy duty and beautiful. I have seen some reviews that say the bowl is hard to get on, but I have not had that problem, a couple of practice runs after reading the manual and it is actually easier than the Artisan. It easily mixes a small quantity, or large family size meal. Double batches of cookies or bread dough is no match for this baby. This has been one of the best purchases for my kitchen, and I got the best price with ABT.
Love the larger size...I can do double batches with ease!

The best gift I've ever received. I bake all the time and this was the perfect gift.
from Murrieta, CA, United States
So happy with my new beautiful red 7qt mixer! My bread dough comes out perfect and I can mix up to 12 cups which is so great. Baking is wonderful again!
Ease of use, time saver.
from Eagle Grove, Iowa
We've always wanted a stand mixer, and this new KitchenAid is now the highlight in our kitchen. It makes every mixer task a breeze. It is easy to use, operate, and clean, and saves so much time in making breads and whips marvelous meringue. We are looking forward to using it during the holiday season!
from Sanford, NC, United States
This mixer gets the job done! I love all of the features and am thrilled I purchased this model. It handles large jobs and doesn't sound like the motor is going to burn up. Love it....... I bought the new scraper paddle and I am happy with that purchase as well.
