I verified ... might not be so great deal.

I think the Pro at Costco at $399.99 is similar to the Pro 6Qt 575 watts $479.99. I hope someone let us know when the Costco one get on sale.

But $269.99 for the Pro 5 plus is not so bad and if you pay with your Visa card, the shipping is free:

What about this one that is currently on the shopping channel for $199 regular price is $299 The Shopping Channel Link



Its the 4.5 quart version, and i think only 300 watt version. Comes in red, black, or steel.

Also comes with a bonus pouring shield

Any thoughts?

Actually, did some searching around, doesn't seem to be the best deal or model to get.

My mom just bought a pro 6 quart yesterday for 399.99 before rebate. It was at c.a. paradis in Ottawa unfortunately she bought the last one but the sales person did say that kitchen aid allows them to get prices that low when there is overstock in a particular colour. So you may be able to find it cheaper if you wait and know a kitchen store that deals in large volumes. Otherwise not too bad of a price.

The ones sold from Beth and Beyond are not eligibal for the $50 rebate. I bought the 6QT from Nella Cutlery in Toronto for $429 before the rebate.

There is a store close to Steels and 400.

Today is the last for the rebate.

Found a copy of the rebate online. Probably in some other post in RD but easier to search the web.
http://www.sears.ca/wcsstore/Sears/pdf/ ... rebate.pdf

The authorized dealer disclaimer can be tricky but the Bay, Homeoutfitters, and Sears would apply.
Clearly said Bed and Bath, Lowes, FS are excluded.

I use my mixer a lot with a variety of attachments. My opinion is at the end of the day wattage still counts most.
For me, I wish I could go to a 575W model but my current mixer still works adequately. I almost blew the motor
trying out the pasta extruder despite other people's warnings. The motor can be taxed wit heavy doughs and that
pasta extruder makes some of the worst pasta you've ever had. The pasta roller attachment (made in Italy) is excellent.
Beats a hand roller and well worth the price.

I think the best compromise for price and performance is the 475W model. Costco doesn't carry it anymore
(and I doubt the rebate applies to them) but Amazon.ca has a reasonable price. I don't think
this the Classic or Ultra Power which are excluded, but maybe someone can confirm. I would hope
Amazon is an authorized reseller. I'd go for that.

$360 - $50MIR (if I'm correct).

Seeing there is a rebate for attachments I think I might shop for some.

I have a 5QT Professional HD and then the 6QT 6000 series. The later 575W makes it day and night compared to the small one. I strongly think that the extra $$$ is worth to spend even compared to the 475W model.

I am keeping both as I do need to beat the egg white seperately at the same time when mixing the flour for the cake.

Another topic. Anybody know where can get the bread proof for home use? Only saw the professional ones which costs close $2k.

Compared to the Costco model, the 6QT 6000 series has the following advantage:

1. It is 100W more, the big difference.
2. It is .5 QT more.
3. It has a pouring shield (retailed for $30).
4. It is $80 more after the mail-in rebate.

I just went to Costco today and the one they have is the pro but 550 not the 600. They sell it for $379.99

Will it worth to buy the 600 including the pouring shield at Cayne's at $100.00 more ? Few minutes left to buy it and get the rebate... :confused: don't know what to do.

I just look the one at BBB and they are $699.99. They are $399.99 at BBB but in USA (.com not .ca) You were lucky if you could pm Sears with the price at a us store.

Ok, a few opinions.

If you're using the KA all the time and are a serious baker go for the biggest you can get.

The pouring shield is a gimmick and doesn't work well. Had one and never used it. Newer version looks more promising but generally I try to distribute flour around the bowl and not one spot.

Artisan with 325W might be better as a lot of decent reviews on Amazon (2000 opinions can't be wrong, can they?).
http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-KSM150 ... ewpoints=1

In past the plastic gears in the KitchenAids were the weak link. The 6QT models would snap them because of the heat and stress. I think they finally moved to metal gears but not on all models.

Proofer? I always put a water pan in the oven, but I don't bake bread too often.

Sorry I couldn't reply sooner. If you are an average baker the Artisan is sufficient. If you bake/cook a lot the bigger the better. Mashed potatoes in a KA??? Oooohhh, gummy. Use a ricer.

And it literally arrived Thursday. But it seems that these ones are better deals? I don't know anything about this stuff :confused:


You probably bought it within the rebate period. You should be able to mail in the rebate. I think you're ok as most people don't use these for bread nowadays. I have serious doubts how a 325W would struggle with thick bread dough.
My little mixer practically lifts off the counter. I usually start with the mixer and finish by hand.

I'm thinking about picking one up on my next trip to states

Wow, that looks great to me. Think I'll pick one of those up too. We get so ripped off in Canada.

Oh, the scandals about plastic gears and oil in the mix you hear about are true. These ain't Hobarts (if you ever seen a real one it resembles commercial units). My mixer most definitely leaks oil and I have to monitor it. Thankfully it is very little down the shaft. It is mostly in the KA cap.

At least the price is cheaper relative to average income than in the past.

The currently sold Costco model is exactly the same power as the Pro600 (not 6000 as you stated).
In fact, it's the same everything, except for the bowl, pouring shield, and a rubber knob on the lifting handle.

Also, in the interest of accuracy, the discussions about plastic gears are wrong.
At least in the Pro model, they haven't used plastic gears, but a few years ago they did use a plastic gear housing cover.
It caused some problems and is no longer used.
People confuse the two.
