Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great mixer

Pamz 7/11/2019

This is my second mixer. My last mixer lasted over 20 years and I absolutely loved it but this new one is even nicer. So much quieter and so pretty to look at.

Second KSM.

JC47 7/10/2019

This is my second mixer. Had first one for about 15 years and it lost in a move. This mixer is slightly smaller but I like the tilt-up design much better. This machine is perfect for everything I do, and I'm planning to add accessories in the near future. It's nice to see that KitchenAid quality has not suffered over the years.

Candis2101 6/23/2019

I have had several mixers in my 45 years of Baking. KitchenAid hands down the best mixer Ive ever used.I regret, I didn't invest in one years ago. Its very true you get what you pay for. So happy with the last mixer I will have have in my kitchen.

good mixer.

ukobach 6/18/2019

had some issues with the first one I bought, when turning it off and on the engine would make a grinding noise and then it just died one day completely. kitchen aid sent out a replacement with no hassle and the new one has been working great ever since.

I like the machine, but a lot of accessories that you find online don't list compatibility with this model. Why are there so many models that seem to be all mostly identical?

Ukobach77 5/16/2019

The first one I got sounded wierd out of the box. A few weeks later it died. Kitchen aid worked with me and sent me a new mixer with no hassle. The replacement is a great mixer and I haven't had a problem yet.

karenmae 1/18/2019

Received as a Christmas gift. Able to handle big portions. Wish the mixer attachment reached to the bottom without having to buy other attachments. Scraping bottom and sides is time consuming.

NikkiB 1/4/2019

The first mixer I bought from Costco burned out during the first use so I returned it. The second mixer I just bought for Christmas baking is making a very bad whining sound. .. Seems to me if you are spending $200 for a mixer thr qualtity should be alot better. I am a disappointed. Can't even use my warranty or the whining because we didnt keep the receipt.

Not as high quality as they used to be.

Kimroe09 3/15/2018

It seems that the quality of the parts used in these has gotten cheaper. The gear in the motor stripped itself in 2 uses. So I ordered a replacement mixer and its already started grinding on the second use. I had my previous kitchen aid for 6 years and made countless loaves of bread, pizza dough, cookies, cakes, wedding cakes, bagels and a million other things and never ever had an issue and now I've killed 2 in 2 months on single batches of standard white bread dough? I always believed kitchen aid to be top shelf kitchen appliances but I'm not sure what to think now.

Luvetdance 3/7/2018

I just got this few weeks ago, love it but I rated 4 stars because it spills the ingredients out when you are adding them. I know they have something for that but it would have been a superb product if you wouldn't have to buy an extra item and it still didn't spill.
