I do a lot of food preserving, baking and candy-making. I have worn out three mixers over the years, one was an older Kitchenaid I received as a gift back in 1980. It was loud and I could not use it when my family was in the den (open concept den/kitchen). It finally gave up the ghost last holiday season and I told my family I wanted a new Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas. I received this model in CA red. It is the best machine I have ever used, including Kitchenaids I've used in classes. It doesn't vibrate even when making divinity and heavy bread doughs. It is so quiet my family hardly knows it's on when they are in the den. I can be using it and still converse with them. I can't say enough good things about this mixer. I have yet to truly test its motor. I have never heard it change its sound when going from thin to heavy batters or doughs. It's really a workhorse. This year, I asked for a spiralizer and a meat grinder for it, for Christmas. Looking forward to receiving some attachments for this awesome appliance. First thing I will do if I get the spiralizer is make a big batch of applesauce, which my family loves. I'm known, now, as Cookie Quick Finger because when my family wants fresh cookies, I can have some made in just a couple of hours.

The beaters DO not touch bottom or sides even after attempting to resolve..as suggested in the manual
I purchased the Flex Flat edge beater for 6QT bowl, installed it and when I turned on the power....the beater hit the sides of the bowl making horrible noise and scrapped the side of the glass bowl making 2 skid marks in the glass, chipped the spout and tore the rubber rim.. The label clearly stated it was for my model, The bowl does not look cracked but there is a mark in two places on the bowl that I fear will get worse with use, so fearful of using my mixer
.Also, on the paperwork that came with the glass bowl mixer, its states "accessories Flat Beater and Flex Edge Beater are available for this model, which clearly is not the case based on my experience.
I have been using Kitchenaid Stand Mixers for years and years....this has to be thw worse product of all. The glass bowl weights a ton...but also, is not working properly. Very VERY disappointed and sorry that I paid so much $$ for a kitchenaid product like this one.
I checked out reviews online for this model....and my big mistake was not reading them BEFORE I spent all this $$...so many people are having the SAME problem I am having with the beater NOT reaching sides and bottom .
Signed....VERY VERY disappointed customer. I will not recommend this model to anyone and concerned about other models now..

Disappointed!

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

I was very exited about this new mixer as I loved my older model that I passed onto my daughter in law.
And, Yes it's pretty, but I haven't been impressed with this particular model. In my opinion the beaters have been made smaller to perhaps compensate for the GLASS bowl. I'm guessing that perhaps the makers didn't want to take a chance on them hitting and breaking the bowl and so (even after making the suggested clearance adjustment) the mixer still doesn't begin to come close enough to the bottom or the sides of the bowl to move my batter or dough around.
KitchenAid is sending me a new bowl in hopes that it will solve this issue, but I am doubtful that it will solve anything. And I'll still have a very exspesive mixer that can't even do what my hand mixer can do!

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

My husband and three kids surprised me on my 40th birthday with this beauty. Immediately I opened up my cookbook and made double batches of cookies and bread. The mixer is wonderful! The motor is a power house without causing the mixer to jump around. The glass mixing bowl is a breath of fresh air. I love to be able to see everything come together right before my eyes. Over all the best birthday gift yet!

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

I purchased about a month ago and absolutely love it. My older appliance could not stand up to the constant use and did not have the power needed for making bread .
I have many allergies and have to cook most things from scratch. And this product has been a blessing. Has made life much easier.

Fantastic Choice

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

I recently purchased a candy apple red Professional 6500 Design Series bowl lift stand mixer. I already own an Artisan model and have been extremely happy with it. The reason for the larger machine is that some recipes call for bigger quantities and I was finding it difficult to mix the batter in the smaller mixer. Although its a little bigger and heavier I don't regret getting it as it makes it so much easier when I make larger quantities. I have always been happy with my Kitchenaid appliances and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

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

The mixer was a bit taller than our old one and doesn't fit under the cupboard. Otherwise it has worked well so far but it is too early to tell or to rate . The glass bowl is rather heavy and difficult to get in place.
