Classic Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer is rated 4.8428 out of 5 by 579.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixing made easy! I received this as a gift from my family so I would make more of their favorite cheesecakes. With my Kitchenaid stand mixer I can mix up a batch, or three with very little effort! Sure beats the wooden spoon I used to use!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from can you replace and help I bought this mixture and I live it so far a little disappointed that the whisk part is distorted but I am using it anyways

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine After I hinted around for several years my husband finally bought me one. I enjoy the ease of use and the quality, but it doesn't have the features that my old Sunbeam mixer had, which I miss. I was disappointed the bowl has to lock in place, when I have ALWAYS been one to turn my bowl as I mix. My old mixer had a free-rotating bowl plate. I would have also preferred a glass bowl instead of the stainless steel. Lastly, the weight of the mixer makes it impossible for me to pick up. So I can't easily move it to the pantry shelf when I'm not using it. Overall, the quality is excellent, but this model is very basic and lacks in innovative features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm still an old fashioned cook! I received my Kitchen-aid mixer as a Christmas gift. I wasn't sure I wanted one as I'm an old fashioned cook, like to do things the old fashioned way by hand. Plus wouldn't it be quicker to just pull out the hand mixer or mix it by hand? I placed my Kitchen-aid on the counter, black, matches everything so nice. Well, I cant believe how I ever got by without this! I use it nearly every day! For everything from homemade bread to mashed potatoes to meatloaf. I mix everything in it and how simple it is to use and to clean it up! I absolutely love it and cant believe I went without a Kitchen- aid mixer for so long! Thanks for a great mixer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Novice user of Tilt-Head Stand Mixer This is the first food mixer I have purchased. Since purchasing the tilt head stand mixer; I have use this product in oodles of preperation of classical to exotic foods. Practice of the use of the mixer was educational, and the short instructions in the literature provided was helpful. The use of the different type of tools allows for faster and better mixing; even the sides of the bowl can be included into the mix. (No requirement to hand scrape the sides of the bowl.) I receive a self satisfaction from the use of this machine. Less physical work and a better end product from the use of this mixer. Thank you Kitchenaid for making a product even a novice can use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I actually wore out my original Kitchenaid mixer after 30 years and decided to replace it with the same model, but a tad more "power". I could not be more disappointed; the various mixing blades are not the quality of my original set. The "extra power" is not noticeable; but the worst problem is that the pin which holds the head to the stand vibrates out of position, so I must be vigilant about watching it when using the mixer. I have been using the mixer for a few years, as I was unable to return it and thought I might be doing something wrong....I have tried everything; don't think its me, think I just got a lemon.
