Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrissy from Lives up to its name and reputation I did a lot of research before deciding to invest in a kitchenaid. I took the plunge and purchased the KSM177 only 3 days ago. The clear shield was missing from the box but a quick call to the customer service ans they sent a replacement out. I have already made cupcakes, biscuits, bread and a zucchini slice and every single one turned out better then it had before I had the Kitchenaid. It's important to note that I did not have anything else before, just a stick mixer and my own hands. I wish I didn't resist buying one until now, it's amazing. It's so much quieter then I was expecting too. I'm hoping this is the kind of appliance that I will have for a lifetime and be able to hand down to my daughter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizOpa from Newfound love I bought this product as a treat during isolation and I’m so glad I did. I have coveted it for some time and was tossing up between the polished chrome and cast iron black. Glad I chose the black because cleaning it is a dream. What can I say about the operation. Simple to use and amazing results. Never have my meringues been so light and airy. Beating eggs and sugar produced a mixture so light and fluffy I had to adjust my baking time because the volume increased so dramatically. Love, love this machine. Can’t wait to use my bonus sifter and scale attachment which arrived last week. no idea why I waited so long to buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Plasticjungle from A beautiful piece Ive been wanting a good stand mixer for a long time. I was tossing up between a few brands but decided on the Kitchenaid when i saw this chrome edition. If it has to live on my bench its going to be a show stopper and everyone loves the look. Its easy to use so far (Ive only used it for cakes/cookies). The sifter i need to work out as it covered my kitchen in a fine film of flour LOL. The chrome can be a chore to clean when flour or cake mix gets on it and also you need to polish it almost daily but hey, if you're going for looks like I did, its worth it. The only suggestion i would make is maybe add a small LED light under the head as some other brands have done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great product, but has beater issues. Happy with product itself, flat beater chipped and coating coming off after first use, not even sure how this happened? Then on further investigation this seems to be a common problem and much frustration to buyers. Such a great product, but clearly this is an ongoing issue that is letting the brand down. A solution is needed ASAP

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Outstanding I am over the moon with my newly purchased Kitchen Aid. It’s everything I have ever wanted. The engraving is an added feature and makes you feel proud to have your name on a beautifully designed piece of machinery. My kitchen Aid sits on my bench for everyone to see and I get comments all the time like, Are they worth getting? How easy are they to use? My answer is Yes well worth getting and very easy to use. The 10 speed setting helps you to keep the revolutions as fast or as slow as you need it to go, giving you the control. All the attachments are really easy to keep clean. I so happy with my Kitchen Aid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fee16 from Amazing product I have had a Kitchen for over 25 years now & I recently updated to this beautiful chrome one. I love this machine and all it’s incredible features and attachments. I received the softer/weighing attachment as a free gift and it is wonderful and easy to assemble and use. I would recommend the KitchenAid to everybody, it is an essential item for every kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Diane8701 from The greatest of all time! LOVE this machine so much! I use it every day to assist in cooking and baking. Second to none as I’ve used other brands. This takes/bakes the cake! Two bowls, so generous and the paddle with the added scraper, no doubt is a smart move! I’m in love! I mix bread, shred chicken, whip up fresh buttercream and mix protein bars. There is nothing it cannot do. I also juice my lemons in bulk to freeze on the juicer attachment that you can buy separately. The colour also adds a modern yet nostalgic feeling to the kitchen. Beautiful to use and beautiful to look at! The quality is the best in the market in my opinion, the performance justifies the price and the clean up is the most easiest yet! I am so happy I made this decision!

Rated 3 out of 5 by TeresaT from Motor issues Whilst I like this machine very much, regular when I start using it (on any speed, even on 1), the motor chugs I.e. pauses, starts, pauses, starts again. When this occurs, I turn the machine off including from the power point and turn it on again. 9 times out of 10, this gets rid of the problem. I would like to return my machine to get it replaced with a new one. Do I go back to where I bought it from or go through Kitchenaid direct? I have video of this issue. On a different note, my recommendation for stand mixers would be to give them a bigger wattage. other kitchenaid appliances have significantly higher wattage that I think the stand mixer would benefit from. Also other stand mixers in the market have more wattage than kitchenaid. I know wattage isn’t everything but I think it would improve the performance of this machine if the wattage was increased.
