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 Home Appliance, But...

Judge Al 9/27/2017

Very strong mixer to handle anything you want to mix, including all pasta and bread dough. The attachments that one has to purchase separately also work great, except you have to pay a fortune for them. The BIG problem is that there is no cover to be found for this large mixer. When I called Kitchenaid, the girl on the phone who claimed to understand I wanted a cover for the Professional 600, was a dummy. She insisted the model number she gave me would fir my model, but the cover the smaller tilt-head mixer, much smaller than the Pro 7 quart I needed. Why they do not offer a cover for this residential unit is beyond me, and a pain where you cannot put a plaster.

Powerful, quiet, workhorse

Jccwc 7/9/2017

Of all the mixers I currently own (KA 6 qt 575 watt, KA pro and KW cooking chef) this is by far my fav. It's powerful and quiet. I made a double batch of croissant dough with no problem, not even the slightest tug on that motor. I compared it to my two other mixers when making the dough again and they couldn't even come close in performance. The other two struggled and heated up, no the Pro. This KA has the quietest motor of any mixer I own or have tried in demos or ones my friends and children own. My one gripe is with a bowl lift mixer it's difficult to into bowl to scrape or add ingredients (even with pour shield). I only wish there was a Pro that could adjust to making smaller amounts, then life would be euphoric.

Exceeds Expectations

Bravobaker76 7/8/2017

I bought this wonderful mixer in March and I just simply love it. I had concerns with my first mixer about longevity, performance, and noise, I've gotta say this mixer is unbothered with any task that I throw at it and trucks right on through stiff doughs like bagels, prolonged mixing projects like Italian meringue buttercream and creates beautifully aerated mouse and whipped cream with its very efficient whisk. The finish is brilliant and I always find myself staring at it in the kitchen, I've got the candy apple red, let me tell you, it's utterly gorgeous and vibrant. The feel is very high end with the handle and all the chrome on the switches and trim band raised letters, truly no expense was spared and I ultimately feel I got my money's worth. You can't beat the 5 year warranty and support offered by the company, though knock-on-wood I haven't needed it yet. I have only one concern, however, and that's with most types of loads with the exception of liquids to aerate, a clicking sound can be heard continuously which makes me question if it's a problem with the gears, the mixer works so that is ultimately what matters to me. It is a splurge, but if you love baking and letting your creativity run wild in the kitchen, then you will be glad you did.

Absolute must have

Timothy 4/29/2017

I've had this for almost a year now. I'm very new to coming and this product has made it very easy to cook so many various dishes. I can't think of one complaint. I've had zero issues and the attachments are plentiful and useful. To save money, find a kitchen store that has refurbished kitchenaids. A lot of times they're used at conventions one time and then have to be sold as "used."

Great for large baking projects

LAK 4/23/2017

We use this mixer regularly for holiday baking. For example, we just made several loaves of Greek Easter bread and couldn't do it without the KitchenAid mixer. The dough hook easily mixes the ingredients and the ability to lower and raise the bowl, makes adding ingredients a breeze without causing a mess. I would definitely recommend this mixer to everyone.

Did not hold up to light mixing

LN 3/27/2017

I have had my mixer for a couple years but rarely used it only for cakes, mashed potatoes and light duty mixing. (no bread dough). Turned it on to mix a cake and it started grinding and the ladle will now not turn. I contacted manufacturer but I would have to purchase a return kit and who knows how much it will cost to ship and then pay them to fix it? Still looks brand new and pretty on my counter, just won't work. Very disappointed as I purchased the largest best (highest cost ) mixer KitchenAid offered to make sure it worked for years......guess not.

Great for large quantities

Astrid 3/26/2017

Works like a dream, three yrs old now. Somewhat noisy at high speed. It's perfect for large qantities of dough, but whipping less than 8 eggwhites - or less than 5 lbs of dough is problematic, volume is too small. I might buy. 4.5 mixer for smaller batches. It's difficult to scrape down bowl, even when bowl is lowered. I have to remove the bowl and the attachment completely to properly scrape it down.

Second Defective Unit in a Row

Barry 2/21/2017

I'm a long time Kitchenaid owner dating back to 1998. I purchased the Proline 7qt mixer to have a larger capacity mixer. The mixer is big and looks very nice on the counter. Unfortunately both of my units (original and warranty replacement) have been a big let down. The first unit clicked and clacked so loud I could not hear the oven timer or TV. The second one had a scary type of grinding noise and deposited metal shavings and oil/grease into my dough. I'm not sure what is going on at Kitchenaid but I'm very disappointed. My unit from 1998 still works great but I purchased t he new one to make bigger batches. I would not encourage anyone to purchase this unit until Kitchenaid gets the kinks worked out. It is not fun to have to deal with the hassle of contacting Kitchenaid and then receiving and sending back the old one. I expect Kitchenaid to deliver a quality product the price paid.

Very Disappointed

Sharon 2/19/2017

I received my Proline Kitchenaid mixer in December 2016. Bowl was rusted and dents replacement had same problem. Customer service said all stock is the same. Its very difficult to set the bowl on the mixer. A metal clip makes it almost impossible. I silver screw fell out from the inside of machine. What it was securing who knows. I contacted the representative whom emailed me back and no resolution was offered. My product sits in its box never used. I'm very very disappointed. Won't refer anyone to Kitchen Aid products.

Just what I expected

WiRichey 12/15/2016

Let me start by saying: After much research I knew I wanted a KitchenAid - but which one? I first bought the Professional 600 Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer. It was very nice - but, it just didn't have the power I needed for the baking I do - pizza dough, yeast breads, heavier cookie dough - and I found it to be unexpectedly loud. So I decided to return the 600 and upgrade to the Pro Line Series 7-QT Bowl Lift Stand Mixer, and I am so happy that I did! Lets begin with the cosmetics...it is beautiful. The candy apple red color is just what I'd expect and I love the detailing of chrome. It looks lovely just sitting on the countertop. Even my Mom, who doesn't bake or cook, commented on it saying "Wow, that's pretty". Now, for the important things...mixing...it works like a dream. It is exactly what I was expecting when I bought my stand mixer. Put your ingredients in - turn it on - and it does it's job. No sounds of stress or strain. Matter of fact it is so quiet that there is very little sound at all. I was mixing pizza dough the other day when my phone rang and I was able to converse with zero interference. I'm very happy with my Pro Line - it makes my baking even more fun than I already had. My only concern (thus the 4 star on design) is a clicking sound coming from the attachment area up above, especially when I am kneading. The heavier the dough the louder the click. It isn't something that would cause me to return it (at this point), but it is something I am going to keep an eye on. I don't know what is causing it, if this is a problem waiting to happen, or just a "normal" expected sound. The mixer has a 5 year warranty so I'm not worried.....I'll just continue to love my new mixer and enjoy every moment of my Christmas baking. I would recommend the Pro Line to every person that loves to bake...the enjoyment and fun factor go up tenfold.

Americas Test Kitchen with Chris Kimball rated Proline 7

Katherine 11/22/2016

On ATK, Chris Kimball and an associate tested 12 pro stand mixers. They found that the Kitchen Aid 7 Quart Proline stand mixer with a "22" wire whisk was the top choice. Next was the Kitchen Aid 4.5 quart Kitchen Aid stand mixer. My question is, will the Kitchen Aid Proline 6 quart stand mixer adapt to the 22 wire whisk that is used on the Proline 7?

Kendra 11/12/2016

Easy To Use

Mes18 11/10/2016

The ease to use this mixer you don't have anything dropping off the beaters. Because the bowl is lifted up with a handle. And when you remove the bowl the beater is removed with the bowl so that nothing is dripping from the beater's onto your unit like the tilt head sometimes does.

Severely flawed manufacturing and quality control!

Cindy 10/13/2016

First, I upgraded to this mixer to replace a KP26MIX 6 quart mixer that malfunctioned after only 4 months of use. The 7 qt mixer arrived in two days but Kitchenaid omitted FedEx return label needed to return defective machine. Now after packing up old machine, I apparently need to wait 3 business days for Kitchenaid to send label. Now, onto the REAL PROBLEM...I JUST ALMOST BROKE MY PINKY FINGER BECAUSE FACTORY NEGLECTED TO INSTALL CAP THAT COVERS HOLE ON END OF BOWL LIFT KNOB! Mixer also had sharp prickly fiber strands stuck to edges of bowl lift glides and glops of excess grease all over! Dough hook and flat beater coating is also defective with pitting and various rough spots too! HOW ON EARTH HAS KITCHENAID QUALITY FALLEN SOOOOO LOW? Now, the icing on the cake...Kitchenaid will not process exchange of 7qt mixer that is missing a part until they receive defective 6 qt mixer which I can't ship without the label they neglected to send me! Jeff Fettig, Kenneth Hossler, and Corby Schroeder should all be ashamed of the lack of quality and inferior manufacturing that is now standard for Kitchenaid brand.

Poor quality

Cake Decorating instructor 10/8/2016

I purchased this mixer February 2016 as a replacement for the 6 quart mixer I burned up making cookie dough. I love my mixer but have had an enormous problems getting a non-defective bowl. I ordered an extra stainless steel bowl at the time I ordered my mixer but received a glass bowl. It was packaged improperly with no padding and in a flimsy box. Needless to say, it was broken when I opened the box. I called customer service, and they sent out a metal bowl that was RUSTED around the inside top of the bowl. Called customer service,and received another defective, rusted bowl. I now have four defective bowls, and only one that is ok. I should have only 2 good bowls. I have given up trying to receive a well made bowl, it just isn't possible using kitchenaid's quality control procedures. I asked if they could at least inspect the bowl before sending and was told it wasn't possible. Don't they have humans working in the warehouse??? My rating would be 5 stars, but my negative experience receiving a food safe bowl cancels out the good.

Disappointing

Frustrated 7/12/2016

I've had my Kitchenaid Proline 7 qt mixer for a little over one year. Every time I use it and it starts to struggle a little bit with cookie dough or other substance, it trips the GFCI. My house is only fourteen years old so I don't know if it's the wiring or the mixer, but it's quite a nuisance. A smaller mixer might have been a better choice

Fantastic Customer Service

Blackhorse 4/30/2016

We bought this mixer 5 months ago, after having a previous model for over 20 years. It worked fine until the other day, mixing, whipping potatoes and kneading heavy bread and pasta doughs. The other day we noticed the flat beater just barely nicking the bowl; this happened through the full range of bowl adjustments. I called customer service and described what I had seen and done. The woman immediately said she would send a replacement, which arrived in just a few days, with complete return instructions, mailing label, etc. I just packed the old one in the replacement's packaging, called Fedex to pick it up and was done. No shipping cost, no "restocking fees", no waiting until they received the problem mixer. We still love this mixer despite the hiccup and can't say enough about KitchenAid's customer service.

Talk About A Mixer!

Julie 4/14/2016

I have not only recommemded this mixer to my friends, I have given one to three of my children and one grandchild. The rest are waiting for theirs or have asked for and received one from their spouse! I received my first Pro Line back in 1973. I raised 5 children and baked cookies, etc for at least 10 grandchildren. The first thing that they ask for when they visit me is, "Can we make cookies"? I never bought yucky bread for my children - I always baked it fresh using my dough hook. I gave my last Pro Series to my son or rather traded it for the smaller on that I'd given him earlier. I do miss it even though the smaller one is nice.

I've had a Kitchenaid mixer 4.5 for years and have loved it...I decided to go for the gusto and purchased the very large,bowl lift mixer...it is a nice mixer but there are some cons with this product...its extremely heavy,with the glass bowl,so it cost me about 50 bucks for a stainless..however the mixer is quite awkward, while trying to get the bowl out and the wisk,the egg whites, cake mix, etc.fall onto the mixer or the cabinet or on me..I realize the motor is too heavy to be a lift and I'm going to say, unless you use very large quantities all the time,the Artisan is the way to go!

FINALLY I GOT ONE!

Cookie Baker 1/29/2016

I got this as an early Christmas gift from my Mom and she ordered one for herself as well. She ordered the Artisan, she loves making cakes. As for me, I'm a cookie baker and always double up on my recipes. My previous mixer was the Oster Kitchen Center that I got from my Mom at my wedding shower--that was about 30 years ago! It could not handle double batches, I had to stop half way through the mixing process to get some elbow muscle into mixing the dough for my chocolate chip cookies. It was exhausting, but I was younger and able to handle it. Alas it was on its last breath and my Kitchen Center finally exhausted itself. When KitchenAid came out with this 7 qt Bowl Lift Mixer, I had been eyeing it for quite some time and finally got one before Christmas! Well, with the hustle and bustle of the recent holiday season and working full time, I never had the opportunity to use the machine. I finally took it out of the box and was afraid it was not going to fit under my counter. To my surprise, I was thrilled it did. I want to display my KitchenAid for all to see! I immediately washed my bowls and mixer attachments and whipped up a DOUBLE BATCH of the chocolate cookie dough. It was effortless to say the least and because the mixer thoroughly mixed all ingredients, especially the brown sugar and white sugar, it broke up the "grainy" particles beautifully! I brought some of my famous Toffee Chocolate Chunk Smore Cookies into work and they were a HUGE HIT! I could not have been so pleased! I wish I had taken a picture to show you how beautiful the dough came out. As far as the mixing bowl, I agree the metal pressure plate in back of the bowl is a bit difficult to get in place. It took me a few tries, but I'm guessing I'll get the hang of it as I use this machine more and more. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see a 7 qt GLASS BOWL to go along with this mixer. I have read many reviews on other sites on this 7 qt mixer and this is requested by the masses! Is KitchenAid working towards this goal?

Not happy

Mama 1/27/2016

I was so thrilled that my husband was able to purchase this mixer for me for Christmas 2015. I have had a much smaller version for years and was more than pleased with how it has held up. I have made 8 double batches at one time of bread in it at Christmas time for years now. I just wanted a bigger and more powerful mixer. I gave away my older one to a niece that is wanting to learn to bake. So imagine my disappointment when I tried to use it and found that the flat beater and the wire whisk hits the side of the bowl. I have repeatedly tried the adjustments recommended in the manual that came with it to no avail.

A better product

WGesser 12/16/2015

I've had my stand mixer (7qt Pro- red) for a bit over 3 months now and still am very impressed. While I do not use every day, when it is used it usually is for large quantities, and it shines. The motor is DC, meaning low RPM's but lots of torque: translating: powerful but silent. Make no mistake, this is not a portable model. It is big. It is heavy, which is good, don't want 3-4kgs of flour dancing on my counter. I expect it to last a lifetime Only reason not giving it 5stars is the mixing bowl and the way it attaches. The steel used could be a little thicker, every time I grab it I'm always afraid it will drop and dent. Although I'm fully aware the bowl needs to be very firmly in place, the present system of a pressure plate in back of the bowl is not efficient, ussually entailing me to try 3-4x before correctly inserting the bowl.

Rose 10/27/2015

I bought this mixer for my son for Christmas in 2013. It is no longer working. He uses it to make bread on a regular basis. Last week the motor started to jam and the attachment no longer moves around. I have had a kitchen aid for many years with no problems. About 8 years ago I purchased the bigger pro-line model and mine has already been rebuilt once and is in the shop again to be rebuilt for exactly the same problem my son's mixer is displaying. If I can't make bread - no more than 6 cups of flour - what is it good for? Very disappointed in this model!

I received this mixer as a surprise gift, to replace my 14 yr old Classic stand mixer. The Pro Line has been a wonderful addition to my kitchen, most notably that it handles a double batch of cookies without even a wobble. Amazing! Also, side note, KitchenAid holds its value, as I sold my old mixer at my rummage sale for $100!

Great product. Love it

Uncle Pauly 8/17/2015

Spent the week making cakes and bagels and bread. It was a joy. The only thing that had me somewhat worried was while baking a double batch of bagels. A very firm, gluten-rich dough. During several passes through with the hook, the motor seemed to stall, then power through. Is this part of the circuitry brain of the unit and a normal finding? Or, should I be concerned of a motor failure?

Bake Cakes Plus! 7/28/2015

I have been waiting to buy a stand mixer. So when I did I bought the best one on the market! I am truly smitten with this device. I have been baking a mixing up a storm. It made my 6 weeks cake decorating class a breeze. Unlike others, I love the sound of mixer as it works and do not find it annoying at all. The machine is working and I find the sound soothing and reassuring that it is doing the work and not me. Don't know how I lived without it before. The scrapper-paddle attachment (purchased separately) is the best!!!

Smooth machine...

Very sharp and responsive, powerful and larger than my previous KitchenAid, happy to be able to produce larger batches without dividing. Seems like they've perfected the Stand Mixer!
