    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mixer I got this for mother’s day and I my family and i love it! Love the ability to add attachments! Love the features as a mixer too. The only negative aspect is that it’s too heavy. I store it in a kitchen garage on my countertop but it’s really heavy to move it around for daily use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and quiet I got the Artisan 5 quart for Christmas and after using it only a few times I knew I needed to upgrade. I couldn't have the mixer running for even 4-5 minutes to properly knead the bread (only one loaf!), it would over-heat and bounce off the counter. So we upgraded to the Professional 6500. I LOVE it!! It's quiet, it doesn't move! I can do larger volumes with no issues, it doesn't sound like it's going to break down. Plus, even though it's not a deal-breaker for me - the glass bowl is a nice feature. I am just a home backer, but already, I think I've had better results, being able to mix things per my recipes recommendations. It is bigger, so needs to live on the counter, but that I don't mind. It's pretty!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An exceptional kitchen tool This mixer (KSM6521XCA) is not a toy. It is a professional piece of equipment designed and built to handle all eventualities that a stand mixer may require. Be it breads, cakes, pastries, cookies, or loaves, this mixer can handle it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waiting for Replacement #4 I was looking forward to upgrading from my tilt head to a heavier duty mixer. This model has not been what I expected. First mixer had issue where the motor would consistently turn on—from the start, not because of over-heating. Second two have had bowl height issues—straight out of the box—and no amount of adjustment has worked...couldn’t event make an egg yolk break! Last replacement also had an issue with the fit of the whisk. Wish I could exchange for a completely different model, but not able to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Heavy! Received this as a gift. It is very heavy, so a weak person should have it placed where you intend to use it. I have not had it long enough to use it much, but I am having trouble adjusting the beater to mix everything in the bottom of the bowl, esp. with the additional stainless bowl I purchased. I'm anxious to see how it mixes bread dough. And, I just purchased the pasta accessories, so that will take some practice. The glass bowl is very heavy, and I noticed that the base of the bowl looked like it had been dropped--chipped area. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love My New Mixer I received the 6000 professional about a month ago as a gift from my husband. I have had a kitchen aid KSM 90 that is about 10 years old and I loved it so now I have two so I am in seventh heaven
