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.

Overall a great mixer

By

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

I bought the pro version of the KitchenAid mixer in hopes that it is more durable that the Artisan level. In general, the mixer is great but it would be even better if the top tipped back instead of having the bowl be lowered. Since the top doesnt tip back, it's a little harder to pour ingredients into the bowl or switch mixing attachments. Other than that it's great though. Very quiet.

Power House Mixer

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

Upgraded to this model and love it. The glass bowl is a bit heavy, so I purchased the stainless steel bowl. You can purchase the 650 model, which has the steel bowl. This is a quite model and has less movement when on a higher speed mixing. As with all mixer I would also purchase a wider beating blade that removes more off the sides so you don't have to push down the sides during mixing.

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

tI got this for Christmas and love the performance since then. The slow start and quite engine are probably my favorite upgrades from my older model. The sturdiness, power and more control are all great reasons to purchase this brand/model!

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

This is a powerful mixer, I find it difficult to add ingredients, probably through more use and getting more experience using will do better. I wanted mixer that didn't bog down doing cookie dough, so this meets my need and owes a double batch, with ease

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

This stand mixer handles every job from the smallest blending to kneading the heaviest bread. What I like best about the glass bowl is being able to see that every ingredient on the bottom and sides is thoroughly blended.
