question about Kitchenaid mixers

So, I am thinking of buying a Kitchenaid stand mixer and want some good and bad issues with them. Am tired of using a stupid hand mixer and my shoulder complains everytime I have to mix something.
anybody got thoughts on them?

I love mine. I got it about 5 yrs to replace the one I got from my hubbys grandma when we got married 30+ yrs ago, and I swear SHE had it when SHE got married! Depending upon how much baking and mixing you do-just make sure you get a powerful enough motor as well as a larger capacity bowl if needed. ie-my daughter, who is a chef has one more powerful than mine, for obvious reasons. The accessories are great as well. I have them all, and use

Not a real big baker at all, but might do more with a decent mixer. I have been told that the thing to pour stuff into the bowl while mixing is a neccessity. Can't remember the name..
I am going to go pick one up this afternoon. Have to drive 120 miles one way to get to a store that has them, but what the heck.

My aunt has one and I love it! When we bake, it makes it SO much easier. When I get my own place someday(haha I'm 16), I'll be getting one. :)

MHFoundation Quarters is right. It is heavy..but that's really the only downside to it.

In all honesty go with a Viking. Same basics as the kitchen aid, but actually has all metal parts. The kitchen aid are starting to be made with more and more plastic parts and just aren't lasting.

I don't know about the new KA, but the Viking has little wheels on the back of the base to help move it around the counter top.

We had a KA before the Viking... That one was about oh 25 years old. >.< We were due for a new one. We do a lot of baking and cooking. So our mixer gets used at least every other day.

We have the 7 qt professional in red - 7-Quart Stand Mixer - VSM - Viking Range Corporation

Well worth the money, and compared side by side with the KA the Viking won hands down.
