BeckyJ 8/16/2017

I bought this to have a stick blender to make mirror glaze for a cake. That turned out really well.I love the KitchenAid mixer I have had for 35 years. My food processor died suddenly so I used the meat chopping attachment. I was making a mousse and used the whisk attachment. This is turning out to be much more useful than I expected. Being able to purchase an extended warranty was also a plus in case anything does happen.

Me 7/17/2017

It does a great job with any reasonable task I put it to. My only complaint is with the speed selection knob at the top of the motor. It it's nearly flat on the top and is a chrome plated plastic which makes it hard to grip with wet fingers while cooking.

My New BFF

My New Best Friend!!!! 4/11/2017

I had my eye on this for a while but wanted to research other brands also. I had another brand but it broke. I finally took the plunge and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. This is a beautiful product. Kitchenaid reputation worthy. It is extremely well made. Quality weight stainless steel. I will pass this on to my grandchildren! I love the storage case. If you are considering this, go for it! I use it almost every day. And yes, I use all of the attachments. Thanks KitchenAide for a top quality product.

Fantastic Product

Amy K. 2/1/2017

I received this as my Christmas present from my husband and I am in love. It has been fantastic to whip up crepe and German pancake batter and my daughter loves how smooth her smoothies are. I especially love the food processor attachment. I have a 12 cup processor, but sometimes that's a bit overkill so I appreciate being able to have a small one that easy to grab, use, and then clean up.

Great product but terrible quality

Hopeful still. 1/30/2017

I loved this 5 piece at first and used it at least 3-4 times a week and then fell out of love. I used the chopper almost only and to only pure tomatoes and onions nothing like cheese or hard food. The plastic parts that spin the blade got stripped and the chopper was useless. I ended up with plastic parts in my tomatoes and onions at first because I didn't understand what was happening. I called the customer service and they sent me a replacement chopper, which was great response from them. However the replacement lasted even shorter than the original. Same issue happened with the plastic getting stripped and not spinning the blade to chop things. Very disappointed in the quality of the product. Kitchen Aid is standing behind its product and sending me yet another replacement chopper. Hopefully the third time is going to be a charm.
