I'm fairly new to baking and I only make cakes for family and friends so I can't justify spending $300+ on a kitchen aid, especially on my budget!!! However, today I went Kitchen Collection and noticed they sell refurbished 5qt mixers for $199.00 (with my $10 coupon it would be $189!!!). Does anyone have experience with refurbished kitchen aid mixers? problems? happy stories? please share!!!!!! thanks

Hi ~ I bought one once and a ''couple years'' afterward it started making ''LOUD''
noises. I called Kitchen Aid and told them what was going on. She had me
hold the phone up and turn the machine on so she could listen to it. I only did
it for a couple of seconds. When I got back on the phone with her she promptly
said she would send a new Kitchen Aid and have the other picked up. Oh, I also
told her it was about 2 yrs old and I didn't have a receipt!! In 2 days I had a
brand new Kitchen Aid pro 600. This happend about 4 years ago.
I say buy it, should anything go wrong with it, they really stand behind their
products. HTH

I bought a "refurb" Pro 600 from Kitchen Collection over a year ago and have had no issues with it.

I have had a KA for well over 20 years and decided that every woman should have one so I bought 3 refurbished KA from the Kitchen Aid website 3 or 4 years ago and gave them to my DILs for Christmas (wish I would have bought an extra to save for my daughter whom is now married). They all love them, and as far as I know, have never had a problem with them. I am even considering sending mine in to have it gone over but I don't want to have to go without it for even a second.

I purchased a refurbished 6 qt. Kitchen Aid from their outlet in Greenville, Ohio (only about an hour from me.) Even got additional discount with my AAA card. Haven't had any problems with it. They often have other items such as bowls for $5. Cute town and fun trip.

Mine was refurbished...I bought it new but our house flooded and the KA was destroyed along with everything else. Took it in, had it repaired, and it has worked like a champ for me ever since. Like everyone else said, KA definitely stands behind their product. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a refurbished mixer.

My father-in-law bought me a refurbished KA about 7 years ago, and I had no problems with it. I gave it to my mom last year when I upgraded mine to the larger model. I love the KA stand mixer and don't think you can go wrong in purchasing one either way! You'll love it!

Ditto. If you're near there and you can make the trip, I reccomend it. If you go during the town's "Annie Oakley Days" celebration, (in July, I believe) you get lots of free stuff thrown in. When I bought my refurbed mixer there, I got a free extra bowl, measuring spoons, grinder attachment kit and some silicone hot-pad thingies.

Anyway, the mixer works fine. thumbs_up.gif
