I’ve had a KitchenAid mixer in my life for quite a few years now, a 6Qt one in fact. Back then there were very few color choices and so I chose the metallic grey, don’t believe that is the proper name for it but simply put, that’s the color it is.
I had been eyeing the 5Qt due to all the wonderful colors since they came out. Since the stand mixer I already have is in perfect working condition, I would just lust after it anytime I went into a store and saw it.
My husband decided to get it for me for one of my Christmas presents and I am thrilled with it. I currently have my 6Qt put away but in all honesty, I may try to sneak it back out into my kitchen…the thought of 2, with all the baking I do, seems like I could get a lot more done and faster. We shall see, for now it sits in a box in the back room.
I love this stand mixer just as much as my original one. It does and has everything I want/need and of course there are all kinds of attachments as well as different bowls/covers that can be purchased to use with this stand mixer.
If you are in the market for a mixer, that will last a very long time, I highly recommend this one to you! I understand the price tag is a bit daunting but in my opinion they are worth every penny. Not just for a baker but for cooking as well. There are daily uses for it which also makes it worth having in any kitchen.
