Rated 2 out of 5 by CakeMomma Not worth the money
I bought the 7 quart as I have an at home baking business and wanted a second mixer. I have a 6 quart and love it and have had it for years! So, I figured a 7 quart would be great as well. I was wrong - my 6 quart has more power to it after 13 years of use than my 7 quart. The bowl is hard to push into place and I feel like it's going to die on me before the first year is up. Guess time will tell. The only thing I like about it so far is the whip attachment is much better for making frosting than the one I currently have on my 6 quart, however, I would stick with the 6 quart mixer on my next purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie53 Excellent product
I love it! I used my 5qt. Mixer a lot but was not enough to hold my double batches of things I would make some would be at top of bowl. This is big enough & handles with such ease. It's the cadallic of mixers. I got the candy apple red love the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dmonster620 Love it
I love the larger capacity, the color (I got the white one), & design. It's quietness completely surprised me. Because of its larger motor, I expected it to be louder than my KitchenAid Professional 600 series. But it was actually quieter. Amazing...
It works like a dream, and the attachments work wonderfully. I had some questions about the model before I bought it, but after speaking with the extremely pleasant & helpful support at KitchenAid, I knew I couldn't go wrong. Between the quality of the product & excellent customer support, this brand will go a long way in keeping me as a loyal customer. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abigaile1996 I have no regret buying the standmixer and the meat grinder accessaries.
My reason for buying this heavy duty stand mixer is that I baked quite a bit and my right wrist and elbow have started giving me pain. I now do no hand mixing, all is taken care of by the stand mixer. Noise level is low enough that my dog who has separation anxiety is not bothered. I am very happy with the performance of the machine. I also bought the meat grinder and I find that the home grind meat tastes much better than the store bought even after freezing. The machine costs a little bit more than the other models but I think if you bake frequent enough, this is the one to get. The accessaries are also easy to put up for use. However, you do have to leave the mixer on the counter as it is very heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Breadnut A more "inexpensive" solution to serious home bakers without going to 12/20 qt Hobart.
The 7 qt. stand mixer with the 1.3 hp motor is definitely stronger and quieter than other models. It is very easy to use just as expected with other KitchenAid stand mixers. The dimension is essentially the same as 6 qt or 5.5 qt. I owned a 6 qt for 10+ years and briefly a 5.5 qt. The main improvement is the depth the bowl. 7 qt bowl sits higher; therefore, contains whatever you are mixing much better; you cannot mix at indicated capacity on a 5.5 qt because your dough, batter, and flour will fly out of the side. This one also has the newer spiral dough hook, which mixes much better than the previous C hooks. But I think it is still not as good as Viking's (or now Cuisine Art's) weird looking hook, which I do not own either one because their motor keeps burning out, and POOR customer service. The wired whisk is better than my 6 qt unit, but I still would love to see KitchenAid offers the balloon whisk as they do on older commercial 5 qt. $600 to $700 listed price is a bit too much for this unit. For about $450 new, this unit is definitely a good buy. With the 5-year warranty from KitchenAid, you don't have to worry about the much complained stripped-gear issues that plagued the recent KitchenAid models.
