I'm really getting concerned with all these posts on KA mixers. I purchased (for Christmas) the Pro 600 series. I used it once, just to make sure it worked and it seems fine. I boxed it back up because, afterall, it is for Christmas. I am just very worried with all that is being said. I have a 5qt one that is 28 years old. The only problem is that it squeels terribly and I have no idea on how to fix it. I told my husband about the site posted above to fix them. I...
I just bought the Pro 600. Do you know if this is the newer one or not.

Look - you're no longer a newbie you are now a Junior Member. Yeah.And to the person with the melted jolly ranchers - give it up. What is that all about and what do you use it for.
I freeze mine for at least 1 hour (or you can do the night before and freeze all night) I use aprox. 1 tbls. crisco to about 1 lb. of melts.
