Due to the very high number of complaints about the problems people were having with heavy duty tasks (which is what the mixer should have been made for!) due to cheap plastic housing holding the heavy duty metal gears, I contact KitchenAid to find out if this design flaw has been fixed. It has been and here is their response (note that they are saying that if you receive one of the models with the plastic housing they will replace it under warranty with the new metal housing. It is also important to note that the people who've had the problem have almost all stated that KitchenAid had great customer service and replaced their mixers with no ones with no problems

My husband bought our KitchenAid stand mixer during the spring of 1989 along with the accessory bundle. It is a fantastic appliance and I couldn't cook as easily without it. I have sung its praises ever since I started using it. As a matter of fact three of my friends/family have bought one based on my insistence that it is a quality product and our daughter and son in law were very happy to receive theirs as a wedding gift from us.

That having been said, the housing on the meat grinder is cracked. I can't say when it did cracked as it has languished in the drawer for many years. Also, we have put it in the top tray of the dishwasher to clean and sanitize it and I don't know if we weren't supposed to do that. The plastic could have become brittle and just cracked. After reading the other reviews complaining about the same issue I am thinking my justifications as to why it cracked are less likely. The only reason I am writing this review now after all these years is because I am surprised and upset that it did crack as it really hasn't been used that often. Also when we were making sausage the meat would squish out around the plate area but I attributed that to it being plastic and not able to seal well. I see other people have had the same issue though.

I'm sorry for the length of this review. I wanted to be clear on the reason for the complaint as I do like the mixer.

So in summary, I fully recommend the stand mixer as it seems to be of good quality and still works great even though it is 25+ years old. I have also bought other KitchenAid appliances, including our refrigerator, based on the normal quality of the company.
I cannot recommend buying the grinder accessory though. It seems to have a design or material flaw and just seems cheap in comparison to the rest of the appliance.

It is great. The one thing that heavier things like cream cheese gets stuck in the bottom of the bowl and I have to make sure I constantly scrape around it

Powerful but hard to load

By 

from St. Louis

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer In Nickel Pearl:

I bought this to have a more powerful mixer with the larger capacity bowl. It is both of those. However, it is difficult to load and scrap the bowl. It would be much easier if the top tilted back like the smaller model or if the mixer was taller and the bowl lowered more. Overall, I like the Kitchenaid quality.

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer In Nickel Pearl:

I absolutely love my new mixer! At first the size was intimidating, but I can do anything with it. It doesn't matter how small or large my mix is. I can get it going and work on other things while it mixes. I've always wanted a KitchenAid mixer. I love the color, it goes with my entire kitchen. I can't wait to use it again!
