      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.

      I Love My Kitchen Aid Mixer. Tho however I am not happy about not getting my Free Gift. I did and sent everything that was asked of me. I have since bought a Slicer Grader I would recommend either to everyone. I just don't understand why I didn't get my free gift.

      Do not waste so much money on this junk

      from Saint Augustine

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

      In one year, I have purchased 4 of these mixers. All 4 have stopped working. When we had them looked at, every single one had the same gear damaged in the gear housing. 4 out of 4 with the same issue. This is an obvious design flaw and Kitchenaid is completely aware. I will be leaving reviews on Better Business Bureau as well and looking for a lawyer.

      Mixing adjustment issues

      I have tried adjusting the bowl per directions and I still can not get it to reach far enough to mix all the contents in the bowl. Disappointed when trying to mix dough the most.

      Professional 600 issue

      By 

      from Marlborough mass

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

      I've had a kitchen aid mixer in the past and loved it. Unfortunately it was lost in a move. I purchased this one hoping to have just as good an experience as with the old one. However I find every attachment it came with fails to fully mix the ingredients. There is a good 3/4 inch clearance from the sides and 1/4 inch clearance from the bottom. I've tried using the adjuster screw to fix the issue at the bottom but there did not appear to be any change in either direction. It's almost as if my mixer came with attachments for a 5 qt bowl and not the 6 qt bowl. I won't be buying another one anytime soon. It will soon find it's way back in the box and in the closest as I'm better off mixing things by hand than using this thing.

      This is my 3rd Pro 600. They are work horses and we work them. We use the grinder attachment and the dough hook constantly.

      Dough Hook and flat beater quality are horrible

      By 

      from Los Angeles

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

      Since while I would love to get Pro 6 Qt mixer, However the Dough hook and flat beater quality are horrible. It has staining your dough with bad quality metariel color from it. obviously I can't do anything without attachemants so the mixer itself stands in the kitchen as a luxury decoration. Cheap quality production on high price + health issue from coloring your dough or food.

      Disappointed

      from Salinas, CA

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

      I got this as a Christmas gift from my mother in law and I have been disappointed from the very first use. When I slide the switch to turn on my mixer, sometimes it doesn't click on so you have to play with the switch before it actually kicks on. The attachments that came with it have quickly lost their coating and now whenever you touch them it leaves a black substance on your hands (almost like soot). Obviously I don't want to put these attachments in a bowl of cookie dough. Yuck.
