      I recently received the KA Pro 600 Design Series lift stand mixer as a birthday gift and was initially excited as I had always wanted to own one. Unfortunately it has been a total disappointment. Aesthetically, it is very pleasing but functionally it is lacking. It is very difficult to get the bowl onto the hooks and during the mixing process, the spatula does not reach the very bottom of the bowl to allow all ingredients to be completely incorporated. My friend who purchased this for me also purchased one for herself and she has had the exact complaints. We are unhappy with this product and are making plans to speak with a Kitchen Aid representative to find out if it can be exchanged for a different product.

      If you can only afford to purchase one tool for your kitchen, this is your device. Versatility and a small footprint are its main benefits.

      Everything I Expected

      Comments about KitchenAid Professional 600 Design Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer:

      I got this mixer for Father's Day and was very excited since I love to bake sweets and interesting recipes. So far I have made cakes, cookies, and pizza. I am about to get the ravioli attachment since I grew up in the north and had great Italian food from friends and relatives. Everything I have made this far has been great. For the new stand mixer novice I think you have to experiment a bit and try different quantities of ingredients to see what produces the best results. That part I am learning. The mixer seems to be limitless at this point. It takes the work load away and makes cooking fun! A few suggestions... I would recommend that you get the flex edge beater right away. It really is perfect for keeping the bowl clean and helps a lot with mixing. Also, if you are older and a suffering from any arthritis you might want to order a metal bowl or step down to the professional 600 and not the design model with glass bowl. The glass bowl is nice because you can see everything while it is mixing. It is also very easy to clean rinsing in the sink. The problem for those with weak hands is that it is heavy. So when you load it up with product, it might be a little more for the average person to handle. The lesser models have stainless bowls and are lighter. Once again, you can order the stainless bowl, but you are going to have to spend a bit more. Bottom line, the mixer is wonderful so far. It is a bit on the high dollar side and It would be nice to throw in the edge beater or the lighter bowl, but I understand profit issues for Kitchenaid. Beautiful Stand Mixer overall.

      Disappointed

      Comments about KitchenAid Professional 600 Design Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer:

      I got thus mixer a few months ago and did get a chance to use it until recently. I am disappointed that it doesn't mix the ingredients in the bottom of the bowl. I even bought the paddle with the scrapper and it still misses the bottom of the bowl. I had higher expectations for paying this much for a Mixer.

      Bowl / height issues

      By 

      from PA

      Comments about KitchenAid Professional 600 Design Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer:

      we had the Artisan for years (sold it when we moved) then saw the 600 model in the store and I talked my wife into getting this over a new Artisan model - I wish I never did,, we should have gotten the Artisan instead.
      this one doesn't reach/scrape the bottom of the bowl,(even after adjusting the screw to max) so she practically never uses it.
      anyway with nothing to loose (other than more $$) we went ahead and ordered a steel bowl to replace the glass bowl, figuring that maybe I could modify the steel bowl to sit a bit higher on the arms - but that wasn't needed with the steel bowl it reaches where it should, just unhappy we had to spend extra $$ on a unit that should had worked.

      Don't buy

      Comments about KitchenAid Professional 600 Design Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer:

      I've had this 18 months and the only positive is it looks good on the counter. I bought this to replace my Classic tilt head, which works fine, but is too small for bread. Unfortunately, bread is all this model is decent for, and I still end up with unkneaded crumbles in the bottom. As others have noted, no matter how many times you adjust the beater height, it does not completely mix any dough or batter- this is a big design flaw. Forget whipping egg whites- this cannot do it at all -I had to hang on to my old tilt head for that , and I live in an apartment- no room . And , the only way to get an extra bowl is to buy another big glass one- money better put towards a new mixer! . I especially angry about this - before I purchased mixer in November 2015, I called kitchenaid customer service about separate purchase of an extra metal or smaller glass bowl for this model ( my classic has an extra 3qt bowl and it is really useful). I was told a 6 qt metal bowl to fit this model was coming out " next month" --the woman even gave me the part number !!! What a joke - it never was produced- in any size. (I believe I read on another site that I was not only one mislead on bowl by kitchenaid-- I wish I could find that fake part number now. ) And, don't bother with the bowl scraper beater it continually falls off and is even shorter than the regular beater ( yes, I DO have the one for this model and not the metal bowl model .) I do believe kitchenaid makes the best mixers, but unfortunately, I can't afford to toss this one -- I'm stuck .
