    Does anyone here have a KitchenAid mixer?

    If you do, I hate you! Haha, just kidding, but I am really jealous.

    I really, really, really want a red one with a whole bunch of attachments, but I haven't been able to justify spending that much just yet. I'm thinking about buying one on QVC through EasyPay.

    What about you guys? Anyone have one of these beauties?

    LindaKay, I feel your pain. I have been wanting one for years but have not been able to shell out that money for it. They are so expensive, especially if you want all the attachments. I watch QVC when they are on and they make it so tempting to buy one. They have a shield for no mess mixing and a ice cream making attachment. The price has scared me away for too many year. However, I think this will be the year I make my vision of having one a reality. I am so excited thinking of all the things I can make when I get one of those beauties in my kitchen.:D

    A KitchenAid mixer is one item that is going on my wedding registry.

    I have a knock-off version of one and it's horrible. The bowl only spins half of the time, when mixing, for the other half, I have to use my hand and guide it along. It's just, every time I think I can fork over the cash, life happens. One day, I will have one though and it will be worth every penny.

    My husband's grandma has a gorgeous red one. It is beyond beautiful and matches my coffee pot and blender perfectly. I lovingly stare at it, whenever I go over to her house. I want one so bad, but money is tight. She has not used it in a while, maybe I should let her know I would love to give it a loving home one day?

    The red one is gorgeous. However, I was watching QVC and saw all the different colors which are amazing!! I could take one in every color. I cannot wait to get mine. My family is excited as well because they know they will be getting more delectable treats to sample. I want to start my own baking business and this will be a welcomed edition.

    They have a lot of beautiful colors, but I would get a red one because my kitchen is done in red, black and Fat Chef stuff, so it would definitely match the best.

    I thought about buying a knock-off before, but I figured it would just make me mad. I definitely think QVC is a good way to pay for it; their prices aren't that much higher than anywhere else, but you can make several payments.

    I love, love, LOVE my kitchenaid mixer.

    And no, that's not an exaggeration. When we were moving, this is how I packed my precious KA:

    And yes, the poor kid who helped us pack that day was very, very careful with that box, lol.

    My Dad bought us one for Christmas a few year ago. Every year, he buys another attachment. It's the single best piece of kitchen equipment I own. I would highly recommend that all bakers put this product on their wish list. Also, this sounds logical, but many people don't do this - wait until there is a substantial sale. At certain times of the year, I've seen the mixers for up to half off.

    Definitely! At Christmas time especially, there are always some really good deals, so put back the money and wait until around that time. The same goes for attachments actually, and often times, you can find really good deals on attachments on places like Ebay. People receive them as gifts but then never really use them, so they try to sell them off as nearly new and you can get awesome prices.

    When you do get your kitchenaid, make sure that you are buying one with METAL Gears. The ones with plastic gears break if they are under too much strain. My son used it one time and it died. He had the wrong beater in it, but still, the gears snapped so fast there wasn't time to turn it off when he knew by the sound something was wrong.

    I was later able to find one at a decent price that was made with metal gears. I still won't let my son near it though.
