Has anyone ever purchased a refurbished stand mixer? I am just a hobbyist, so I am finding it hard to justify spending such a large amount of money on a mixer. However, I have seen a few refurbished ones posted on ebay. Any thoughts on going this route? I have purchased a refurbished cell phone before and have had no problems with it.
Any advice/thoughts greatly appreciated.
P.S. Happy Friday
Kitchen-Aid mixers are the best! Thats all I use, and if you have a problem with them, the Kitchenaid people have great customer service!!
I purchased a refurbished Kitchen Aid Artisan from Amazon years ago. I use it several times a week for frosting, bread making, cookie dough, etc. I've never had a problem and it is still going strong.
I purchased one from amazon that was refurbished and the bearings were messed up after a couple months so I called Kitchenaid and they replaced it at no cost to me. Even upgraded the model cause the one I had was no longer available. I have been using this refurbished one for over three or four years now with no problem. check out amazon Two things I swear by my kitchenaid and my Le Creuset pots and pans
You can email shopkitchenaid.com to find their outlet store where they sell refurbished and closeout models. I don't know where you were shopping on eBay, but KA has their own eBay store. I have bought several refurbished items plus a stand mixer from KA and love their products and customer service.
I use a refurbished one. No problems. Sometimes you can't be very choosy about the color w/ a reburbished one though.
KitchenAid also sells factory refurbished units.
And I saw on their regular website that they have some rebate offers on new stand mixers.
I have bought a refurbished car stereo and cuisinart blender. Both are wonderful and I saved a ton of money! I never thought of a refurbished kitchenAid. I could use another mixer, thanks for the idea!!!!
Thanks so much ladies! I forgot to come back and check this post after I wrote it....so that's why I didn't respond earlier. I didn't realize that KitchenAid sells refurbished ones themselves. I just had the idea to check out ebay since that's what I did with my cell phone. Will definitely look into it.
