I am thinking about getting a new and bigger KA. My husband loves them and is very impressed thanks to using them at the fire station when they cook. (which shows how much he doesn't cook here since we have had one for years! LOL) He was telling me that they have looked into buying one that has been refurbished. It comes with a warranty and looks brand new. I am not sure what to think so I wanted to see if anyone has one on here.

I think he said they were $249 vs the $500 for regular price. (6 qt.)

Thanks for any feedback! =)

I second that! My very first KA was a Professional 600 "refurbed" that I received nearly 13 years ago! It still looks and runs like I got it yesterday! LOVE that thing!

I have the 6 qt, was bought new by my dh for Christmas. I know they are a lot but he got it when the store was having a sale and he also had a coupon, (I think he paid a little less than $400) so if you have patience, maybe you can snag a deal, or check ebay

I bought mine off Ebay a couple of years ago. It is a refubished 6 qt professional. I paid apx $145.00 plus shipping for it. It had no obvious flaws. The head shakes some when running, but other than that it works fine. If it broke, I would buy another one tomorrow.
