      Due to the very high number of complaints about the problems people were having with heavy duty tasks (which is what the mixer should have been made for!) due to cheap plastic housing holding the heavy duty metal gears, I contact KitchenAid to find out if this design flaw has been fixed. It has been and here is their response (note that they are saying that if you receive one of the models with the plastic housing they will replace it under warranty with the new metal housing. It is also important to note that the people who've had the problem have almost all stated that KitchenAid had great customer service and replaced their mixers with no ones with no problems

      My husband bought our KitchenAid stand mixer during the spring of 1989 along with the accessory bundle. It is a fantastic appliance and I couldn't cook as easily without it. I have sung its praises ever since I started using it. As a matter of fact three of my friends/family have bought one based on my insistence that it is a quality product and our daughter and son in law were very happy to receive theirs as a wedding gift from us.

      That having been said, the housing on the meat grinder is cracked. I can't say when it did cracked as it has languished in the drawer for many years. Also, we have put it in the top tray of the dishwasher to clean and sanitize it and I don't know if we weren't supposed to do that. The plastic could have become brittle and just cracked. After reading the other reviews complaining about the same issue I am thinking my justifications as to why it cracked are less likely. The only reason I am writing this review now after all these years is because I am surprised and upset that it did crack as it really hasn't been used that often. Also when we were making sausage the meat would squish out around the plate area but I attributed that to it being plastic and not able to seal well. I see other people have had the same issue though.

      I'm sorry for the length of this review. I wanted to be clear on the reason for the complaint as I do like the mixer.

      So in summary, I fully recommend the stand mixer as it seems to be of good quality and still works great even though it is 25+ years old. I have also bought other KitchenAid appliances, including our refrigerator, based on the normal quality of the company.
      I cannot recommend buying the grinder accessory though. It seems to have a design or material flaw and just seems cheap in comparison to the rest of the appliance.

      My husband bought it for me a few months ago as a surprise and I love it. At first I didn't know what I would use it for because I didn't do a lot of baking. But now I am using it all the time!

        WOW ! I love this machine. I was not a baker but I was doing large batches of cookies for a fund raiser and was frustrated with how hard it was. So off to the store I went, I was a bit taken a back at the cost but after two triple cookie recipes done I was sold. The 600 series made large patches so easy to do and I wasn't tired half way into it. The paddle stirs and mixes so beautifully. I was so taken with it I snuck out and bought the pasta press/cutter trio. I will never buy dry pasta again. Everyone that knows me is wondering what happened because I am always baking. My next attempt will be my mothers bread recipe. Thank you KitchenAid I love love love my mixer

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

          I upgraded to the KitchenAid® Professional 600™ Series 6 Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer after having a smaller Kitchen Aid mixer for 26 years. I love the power of this machine. It allows me to make double-batches of cookies, bread, etc., seamlessly. It has a cover/pour shield to prevent flour "dust up" messes. It is a sturdy kitchen appliance, and I have confidence it will serve our family well for many years. I did have an electrical issue that developed within two months of purchase. Customer service was excellent. Immediately sent a new machine with instructions how to return the faulty unit/postage paid; was received in less that a week. Couldn't recommend more highly. You will NOT be disappointed!

          This is my third Kitchen Aid stand mixer ... use it for everything from ice cream to bread. Hardly a week goes by without at least 2 uses. My first goes back 30+ years.

          I am very new to baking and my daughter gave me this as a Christmas gift. It was intimidating at first but once I started using it, life could not be better. So worth the price my daughter paid for it.
