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 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!

FINALLY I GOT ONE!
By Cookie Baker
Comments about KitchenAid Proline Bowl Lift Red Stand Mixer:
I got this as an early Christmas gift from my Mom and she ordered one for herself as well. She ordered the Artisan, she loves making cakes. As for me, I'm a cookie baker and always double up on my recipes. My previous mixer was the Oster Kitchen Center that I got from my Mom at my wedding shower--that was about 30 years ago! It could not handle double batches, I had to stop half way through the mixing process to get some elbow muscle into mixing the dough for my chocolate chip cookies. It was exhausting, but I was younger and able to handle it. Alas it was on its last breath and my Kitchen Center finally exhausted itself. When KitchenAid came out with this 7 qt Bowl Lift Mixer, I had been eyeing it for quite some time and finally got one before Christmas! Well, with the hustle and bustle of the recent holiday season and working full time, I never had the opportunity to use the machine. I finally took it out of the box and was afraid it was not going to fit under my counter. To my surprise, I was thrilled it did. I want to display my KitchenAid for all to see! I immediately washed my bowls and mixer attachments and whipped up a DOUBLE BATCH of the chocolate cookie dough. It was effortless to say the least and because the mixer thoroughly mixed all ingredients, especially the brown sugar and white sugar, it broke up the "grainy" particles beautifully! I brought some of my famous Toffee Chocolate Chunk Smore Cookies into work and they were a HUGE HIT! I could not have been so pleased! I wish I had taken a picture to show you how beautiful the dough came out. As far as the mixing bowl, I agree the metal pressure plate in back of the bowl is a bit difficult to get in place. It took me a few tries, but I'm guessing I'll get the hang of it as I use this machine more and more. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see a 7 qt GLASS BOWL to go along with this mixer. I have read many reviews on other sites on this 7 qt mixer and this is requested by the masses! Is KitchenAid working towards this goal?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was so thrilled that my husband was able to purchase this mixer for me for Christmas 2015. I have had a much smaller version for years and was more than pleased with how it has held up. I have made 8 double batches at one time of bread in it at Christmas time for years now. I just wanted a bigger and more powerful mixer. I gave away my older one to a niece that is wanting to learn to bake. So imagine my disappointment when I tried to use it and found that the flat beater and the wire whisk hits the side of the bowl. I have repeatedly tried the adjustments recommended in the manual that came with it to no avail.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A better product
from Belem - Brasil
I've had my stand mixer (7qt Pro- red) for a bit over 3 months now and still am very impressed. While I do not use every day, when it is used it usually is for large quantities, and it shines. The motor is DC, meaning low RPM's but lots of torque: translating: powerful but silent.Make no mistake, this is not a portable model. It is big. It is heavy, which is good, don't want 3-4kgs of flour dancing on my counter. I expect it to last a lifetimeOnly reason not giving it 5stars is the mixing bowl and the way it attaches. The steel used could be a little thicker, every time I grab it I'm always afraid it will drop and dent. Although I'm fully aware the bowl needs to be very firmly in place, the present system of a pressure plate in back of the bowl is not efficient, ussually entailing me to try 3-4x before correctly inserting the bowl.

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!!
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.

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
