  Pro 600 bowl lift stand mixer
Posted By: Cherie Ross

Since 1996 I have purchased a 5 qt. bowl lift mixer, a 6 qt. pro 600 and another 6 qt. pro 600 bowl lift mixer. The 5 qt. is still going strong. I gave it to my daughter in 2002, when I "upgraded" to the 6 qt pro 600. That mixer lasted 4 years, almost to the day, when it failed. To Kitchenaid's credit, they replaced the mixer with a new 6 qt. pro 600 in October, 2006. Here it is October, 2009, and the new mixer is failing. I have to remove the cover and hand tighten all the screws several times during each use. If I don't, the screws work loose and the head moves around so much it seems like it could come completely off the machine. It's supposed to be able to handle up to 14 cups of all purpose flour but I have tried to double my bread recipe only once (12 cups of flour) because the machine couldn't handle the extra load. I agree with another review I read about the quality of the dough hook and the flat blade. Why did Kitchenaid go away from the stainless in favor of the "pot metal". It would be very nice to have those attachments dishwasher safe again. However, all in all, I really like the machine until it starts to fail. I just wish it would last more than 3 or 4 years and stop failing right at the time of year when I need it most. Yes, I'll probably buy another one, since, if I send this one back to Greenville for repairs, by the time I get through paying all the add on fees and get the machine back in 4 or 5 weeks, it would be less expensive to just buy another one. By the way, I love it for making pasta and grinding meats.
