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

Comments about KitchenAid Proline Bowl Lift Red Stand Mixer:
I received my KitchenAid mixer from my mom. She had it for a year but due to poor health, was only able to use it a couple times. I was so excited to get a KA Mixer!! But the attachments have oxadized and black rubs off on my hands. I can't use them so therefore, I cannot use my mixer at all. HELP!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love the quality
from Los Banos
I purchased this one to replace my smaller kitchenaid that I had for 20 years. It still worked perfectly but I handed down to my son. This model is perfect. I love that now I can easily triple the batch. It's very quiet. I also purchased with the spiralizer and now homemade apple pie has never been easier.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this mixer. The bigger size makes it easier to add ingredients.

I bought this mixer for my son for Christmas in 2013. It is no longer working. He uses it to make bread on a regular basis. Last week the motor started to jam and the attachment no longer moves around.I have had a kitchen aid for many years with no problems. About 8 years ago I purchased the bigger pro-line model and mine has already been rebuilt once and is in the shop again to be rebuilt for exactly the same problem my son's mixer is displaying. If I can't make bread - no more than 6 cups of flour - what is it good for? Very disappointed in this model!

world's best mixer
from Mechanicsburg, pa
This I hands down the best mixer I own.I have a 5 quart kitchenaid which I have used for yrs didn't know how underpowered it was for doubling recipes until I received this one. I made a angel food cake had the egg whites whipped all the way to the top of the 7 quart bowl....amazing

I received this mixer as a surprise gift, to replace my 14 yr old Classic stand mixer. The Pro Line has been a wonderful addition to my kitchen, most notably that it handles a double batch of cookies without even a wobble. Amazing! Also, side note, KitchenAid holds its value, as I sold my old mixer at my rummage sale for $100!

Great product. Love it
By Uncle Pauly
from Greenville, OH
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?

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!!!
