Sorry in advance for the lengthy post icon_cry.gif . Good Day to all! I received a wonderful present from my sister and brother -in- law. They saw how bad I wanted my very own Kitchen Aid mixer, so for Christmas, they purchased one. Well, first off that has to be one of the sweetest things anyone ever bought for me ( not to mention pricey). They were so excited when they gave it to me.

Fast forward to two days later and I opened the box to get my first taste of no labor buttercream mixing, only to find that on the lower left hand corner the empire red paint/enamel was peeling and the mixer doesn't sit completely flat on the counter (as if it were bent or defective).

I told them about it and they are going to take it back where it was purchased. I have been doing some research on it and it seems that a few people have had various problems with KSM95WH (Ultra Power Tilt Head 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer.
Should we return it for the same one or aim for a different model? Any opinions or reviews would be greatly appreciated

-Sweetheart- Thanks for your comment. I have been reading some old threads that seem to indicate that KA's are not as reliable as they used to be. How often do you use your mixer and can it handle buttercream and fondant well?

I don't have that exact model, but my husband bought our kitchen aid almost 6 years ago. i do everything in, buttercream, fondant, made marshmallows this past week, they weren't thick, but whipped for 15min. I don't think I could live without mine. Was so happy to make cinnimon rolls with the knead hook and not have to knead that sucker for 10 min.
