My daughters and I each got a Pearl white 6500 PROFESSIONAL - F series - for Christmas.
GOOD - The pearl white is gorgeous, subtle pearl (not bling bling glittery) very classy. I love the bowl lift feature as I don't have to pull it forward on the counter top to tilt the top back for the 6 qt glass bowl.

GOOD -The large 6 qt glass lift bowl is heavy and substantial (not a criticism). The motor is quiet even on the highest setting.

GOOD - I also have the spiralizer attachment, and the pasta roller and cutter attachments - i have used them all, and so far so good!

>>> NOW FOR THE BIG BUT < < <
The only beater/mixer blade and the only wire whisk available for this model are a frustration!
Come on Kitchenaid!

NOT GOOD - The beater blade only mixes the stuff in the middle of the bowl, and needs a babysitter to scrape the edges and bottom so that the bowl contents get thoroughly mixed. Turning off the mixer to scrape the sides of the bowl is recommended so you don't destroy your spatula or your hand.

NOT GOOD - The 6 wire whisk doesn't get close to the sides so similar mixing issues arise (unless the contents are liquid).

Less expensive/smaller Kitchenaid models have wide 11 wire whisks that Whip it, whip it good!
Less expensive/smaller Kitchenaid models have a beater with a rubber spatula blade that scrapes the edges of the bowl for you, so you can cook like a professional. - Hey! BUT I BOUGHT THE 6500 PROFESSIONAL MODEL.

Kitchenaid - please make an 11 wire whisk and a rubber edge beater blade for your higher end 6500 PROFESSIONAL model. ASAP! When you have these that fit the F series bowl - please let me know.

I bought this mixer several months ago and sadly have found myself not using it. I primarily use my mixer for baking and the paddle doesn't reach near the bottom of the bowl (I understand needing room for the glass bowl, but it's a pretty big gap) I bought this mixer because I often bake large amounts at one time, but if you're only making 3-4 dozen of cookies or one double cake, it just doesn't mix the bottom layer of dough/batter/etc (much worse than my old KitchenAid mixer.) If I stop and scrap A LOT, and once a critical mass of batter is reached, it works. But honestly, I should be able to cream some butter and sugar without having to stop and scrap 8+ times. So for delicate items that are sensitive to mixing, it's definitely out.

I've tried to do the height adjustment with the screw, but it's still really far from the sides/bottom. I've also tried a few scraping type attachments (Like I had for my old KitchenAid, because this problem isn't a new one for KA mixers, it's just FAR worse on this model), but none of them work.

It is beautiful, relatively quiet, and is definitely a good size, but this issue is almost a game stopper. Sadly, I think about getting rid of it every time I go to use it.

It's nice that kitchen aid responds to every negative review, but it's a blanket apology, they don't address anything. You will not be able to mix your items completely.

Pro 6500 - A culinary dream come true......

By 

from Houston, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Professional 6500 Design Series Bowl-Lift Frosted Pearl Stand:

This is my first Kitchenaid stand mixer and I am elated with this product. I grew up in a home with the old-school Hobart mixer my mother cherished. My mother had 5 sisters and all of them had a Hobart/Kitchenaid stand mixer as standard culinary equipment. I use my Kitchenaid for everything from baking to sausage making and would recommend this item to anyone that will listen. So, for those of you on the fence because of price, or for some reason you are unsure of the magical, fantastical Kitchenaid stand mixer, bite the bullet and get it. Go for it. You won't be disappointed!

Wish we would have bought this year's ago

Comments about KitchenAid Professional 6500 Design Series Bowl-Lift Frosted Pearl Stand:

We "treated" ourselves to Consumer Reports highest rated stand mixer, the Kitchenaid Professional 6500. We could not be more pleased with our purchase. We've used it more often than we initially thought we would to make French bread, meat loaf, cookies, whatever--and we've had it for just two months. Our only regret is that we didn't buy this or a comparable mixer years ago. Too, the candy apple red color certainly adds to our cooking fun.

I got this as a gift and could not be happier!! I love the sleek look of the glass bowl. Easy to use, although I wish the top part of mixer would lift up for easier access when adding ingredients to bowl.

So far happy

Comments about KitchenAid Professional 6500 Design Series Bowl-Lift Frosted Pearl Stand:

So far I'm happy with this stand mixer. I've made a few things and it's operated well. HOWEVER I am displeased with both KitchenAid and their affiliate's companies knowledge of and availability of accessories for the mixer. I've attempted to purchase a silicone scraping beater and although it says fits all 6 quart lift stand mixers - it nearly knocked mine over when I turned the machine one. Needless to say it does not fit. This mixer is very large and a wide variety of accessories to accommodate the size bowl/recipe needs or various bowl sizes would be very helpful, but goodluck finding that info.

Comments about KitchenAid Professional 6500 Design Series Bowl-Lift Frosted Pearl Stand:

After wanting a KitchenAid for years we finally took the plunge and bought one. We spent a lot of time researching the best fit for our uses. My husband makes a very hearty whole wheat bread so we wanted one that could handle the load and we have not been disappointed. The only concern is the weight of the bowl and how tricky it can be to snap it in to place with the stand. Overall, very happy with our purchase.

Looks great, but....

By 

from Bridgewater, NJ

Comments about KitchenAid Professional 6500 Design Series Bowl-Lift Frosted Pearl Stand:

I have waited for years to purchase a KitchenAid mixer that I could afford. It is a great mixer but the paddle is not close enough to the bottom of the bowl. It doesn't mix and gather up the ingredients. I always have to stop it, take the bowl out, mix the ingredients on the bottom of the bowl into the batter, and put it back on the stand to have it fully mixed. Also, I don't understand why I have to stop the blender, put my hand into the bowl to take off the attachment in order to remove the bowl itself. I wish it lifted up a little so I this would be eliminated. Otherwise, it's a gorgeous piece of equipment.
