IMO not great but it really depends on what you plan on doing with your kitchenaid. If you're just going to be beating large batches of eggs or whipping cream, this will do the job. You can also do small batches of dough. I got this model from Macy's and found it to be underpowered when I was kneading pizza dough and returned it and got a brand new Pro 600 series directly from Amazon for $200 when they had a sale.

A couple things to consider benefit vs cost when looking at kitchenaid stand mixers: lift models vs tilt (lift is better), Glass vs metal bowl (glass looks nicer but is much heavier), power rating of motor (look at watts with a few exceptions), type of motor (most are AC including the 600 series, but the 6000 series, 7 series, and anything above $500+ has a DC motor which would be better). If you're doing lots of kneading there's the spiral kneader vs dough hook (spiral is better).

Interesting, I didn't like my Pro 600 (noisy and got hot fast when kneading- but maybe it was defective), but then a deal for a 7qt came up here. So far, loving that. Not sure I agree with lift being 'better" than tilt- tilt is great for people with lower hanging upper cabinets. I would have no problem pulling out my tilt mixer, but my lift mixers have never fit right. I also found the tilt versions easier to seat the bowl.

Agreed. I forgot about the height considerations which is important. I think if you're just looking at mixing quality, the lift models are better because the energy is better directed to the bowl ingredients, whereas I found with tilt models, the mixing head would move around if the dough was too stiff.

My 600 does get a bit hot sometimes and if I were to buy a replacement, I'll prob get one with a DC motor like yours.

Not great because they have been at least $25 less in new condition. I went to 2 pawn shops (EZPawn) and found this exact model mixer for $125 and the box was very dusty so I opened it and found everything still wrapped in plastic in the rigid foam packing molds. I tested it, made sure it had all 3 attachments (beater blade, wire whisk, and dough hook) and told them it looked very old (I wasn't lying because I was talking about the extremely dusty box top and how long it was sitting on the shelf, but they assumed I meant the unit's condition which helped in this case) and if they wanted to finally sell it they'd have to do a lot better than $125 since that's what they sold for in NEW condition a few months ago during Black Friday. Pawn shops usually shoot for less than 30 day product turnover (they said this had been there nearly 6mos) so they quickly quoted $75 to sell it now which of course I took! When I got home I took it apart to do a full inspection of the motor and brushes and it was actually brand new, never used lol! The moral of this story is to always look for deals, and sometimes try places you wouldn't expect said deals to be because those are the places that will have a hard time selling unusual items and you'll often get a much better deal on them because of that.

Don't the tilt head models all have plastic gears?

Yeah how can a person tell which kind of gears any given model has?

How does this compare to the Pro 5 I got at Best Buy for $200 the other week?

My Pro 600 doesn't get hot when kneading pizza dough. It is whiny in noise, which is a common complaint for this model, however the noise isn't that bad where it's bothersome to me.

Gotta use these once a month or the bearing grease breaks down, liquifies, and ends up in your zabiogne. They never tell. Claim it's not a defect. Not in the manual.

Lift vs tilt is very subjective. My wife prefers tilt because you have to drop the attachment into the bowl when using a lift mixer.

I agree, i love the tilt much more then the lift! Its a pain when making batches of buttercream and having to clean off the paddle attachment on a lift. Tilt makes that sort of task so much easier.
