I’ve burned out my second Kitchen Aid in less then a year.
My first kitchen aid 5qt lasted over 25 years, and it’s still running. (I gave it to a friend)
My husband replaced it for me with a refurbished 6qt about ten years ago. It died 4 months ago.
I replaced that with a refurbished KA 6qt professional, 3 months ago and last week, the gears where shot.
(I am only mixing cake batter, buttercream icing, and fondant)
I was able to exchange the 3 month old KA for another refurbished KA.
Well, I’ve only used the new KA for about A week. I’ve mixed a few batches of cake batter and a few batches of buttercream and already it is acting up. It is making noise and when it goes in speed 6, I can hear a clicking noise in the gears when I am mixing buttercream. I want to take it back and get my money back (if possible) and purchase a Viking 7 qt.
I’d like to hear about what kind of mixer YOU have, and what kind of successes or failures you have had with it.
