ok did some research - here is what I learned. Stay with Kitchenaid, bottom line. Specifics:

(1) size doesn't matter as much as you think since its based on bowl size. if you have a bigger mixer that has a longer head, it might not be as effective based on its position within the bowl. again, shorthand, all sizes (4.5 to 7 quart) of kitchenaid are good.
(2) bowl size - wider and rounder is better...taller more v-shaped can lend to pooling at bottom of liquids.
(3) inner blade shape is important - it needs to (a) contour to the shape of the bowl so you don't have to keep scrapping down the sides, and (b) not have sharp angles in its open stabilizing framework so it doesn't trap dough which just then takes a ride without any mixing (more scraping).
(4) handle size of the bowl matters more than you think - taller wider handles help usability, while other models have narrow or smaller handles which makes dividing and pouring out harder to manager when the bowl is heavy with dough.
(5) Splash guards are good but you should always opt for the open C-shaped....the full round shaped require you to take off and on the head every time you put it on...which is a pain.
(5) splash guard opening should be wide so you can feed in ingredients...if its narrow its harder and, for example where you are putting in hot sugar into the mix it can then dribble down the inner side before getting to the batter and harden...more scraping.
(6) motor watts not as important as the Torque. this will require digging down into the specs...but shorthand again, the kitchen-aids seem to all have much more powerful torques. so heavy doughs will be not problem (even when the wattage is smaller, like in the 4.5 quart varieties).
(7) lastly, and this one is sad for me to find out but it makes sense, that you should opt for the lift bowl variety....its more sturdy bottom line.....the tilt head is cooler in a way and will more easily fit under tight spaces but is less sturdy and the tilt lock can break more easily with repeated use.

Shredded chicken for soups, tacos, casseroles, nachos, bbq, pizza, etc.
Kitchenaids are pretty commonly used to pull/shred meat. They also have a ton of attachments like meat grinders and slicers/shredders for vegetables/cheese.

What is the difference between this one and the one at Costco for $250. Costco one says "with Flex Edge". Is that worth the extra $50?

And a more powerful motor. 590 watts vs 450 watts in this one. The Costco one also has a pouring shield I believe but is OOS online.

I ended up going with the Best Buy one a few weeks back at this price. I love the blue color. It's worked well so far. No complaints

No, the flex edge beater is not worth an extra $50, and while the Costco model is 6qt, I don't think many people will notice a difference.

Based on other comments here, though, the Costco model has a better motor. That's worth consideration if you're thinking about making dough in the mixer, as you'll want the extra power.

Is that Costco one the same one that went on sale for $279 not long ago?

Been waiting for this deal! Blue ink not available near me so I had to fall back on the silver one.

Any mixer accessories recommended?
