I'm not sure I like the way you have to tilt the cuisinart bowl to get it under the beater.??!! Anyone with experience have a comment on that?
Two things that keep me going- prayer and pastry.

does this new one just move up and down with the side handle? Is it a big deal that it doesnt tilt back or does it?

I saw the 7 qt KA and the guy at Williams Sonoma told me they've been using it for all their demos and it's great. I want it...If you look to see how awesome it is it's not overpriced! I have three KA 6 qts and the Cuisinart, and I use them hard, so they're totally worth the cost.

Here's a video I did of the KA 6qt vs the 7 qt Cuisinart. I prefer the KA but some people like the Cuisinart. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYAZX_C6Y3w

Factor in that price the fact that Williams-Sonoma guarantees them for life. My Pro610 had a gear issue and it was replaced with the great customer service I got when I bought it.

Some people seem critical of WS prices, but it is a boutique catering to upper income people who want the environment, customer service, top quality merchandise, and a knowledgeable staff. That place is a treat to shop in. We don't get that at Sam's and Walmart. That type of shopping experience comes at a cost. And most WS shoppers enjoy the exclusivity of their signature items.

Another WS customer service advantage: Their recipes are exceptionally good. And their premium ingredients have been very good. I usually don't do anything not-from-scratch, but those ingredients are my version of fast food.

very good points! thanks for the youtube vid~ love the points and differences brought up.. i'm leaning more towards the new KA for alot of reasons.. the warranty with WS is a big factor especially with that the fact of the gear issue happened with my KA a few years ago (ka artisan) when it was dropped. hubby adjusted, still runs but i need "more power" and capacity icon_biggrin.gif

Okay - I am only about an hour from Kitchen Aid outlet. I bought a great refurbished six quart pro for around $200 - and it works great. But would really like one size bigger. I will have to see if they have a refurbished one there. (Plus you get a 10% discount with AAA membership.)
Love cakes!!

Given that 7 quarts are new and only sold at WS, I think it will be a long, long time before you find refurbished ones. I personally love the 7 quart. You can't use it for smaller batches of stuff due the fact that there is not enough batter to mix it properly. But for other things it is great. We are loving it in the shop. Plus the shiny red color is fun to see in a sea of stainless steel.

And their prices don't go down. The lady at the store told me that she had never seen a 1 year old KA Pro610 break down, so the refurbished will be a long time coming. My guess is that the 7 is of the same construction as the Pro610. I have heard the smaller ones are more cheaply made.

Wow.. those of you in the US have no idea how wonderful you have it!! That 7-quart, even with the overpricing at WS... well.... it's less than I'd have to pay here in France for a KA Classic!!! UK is better than France, with a KA Artisan costing about 410 pounds sterling.... which means it's about $635! Sigh... could do with someone bringing me one over from the states... even if I do have to use a voltage adapter! heheh!!

gidgetdoescakes: you ordered a viking 1000 watt 7qt. mixer and they send you a 800 watt 5qt.? first of all they didn't even send you what you ordered, you got charged for the wrong thing I hope that they reimbursed you for the shipping back. Is Viking made by KA? I am kind of lost here? If you ordered a viking 1000 watt mixer and got the wrong one are you sure you don't want to make them send you the right one at their expense? The vikings look pretty big and powerful. I know nothing about the brand of mixer you asked about. Sorry. Just trying to understand what happened here.

That is strange. I have to say I am quite surprised. It is amazing to me how many companies don't care about negative advertising. Are they that sure of their product that they don't have to care if they messed up with one customer? That is sad!! Well, I don't blame you for looking for something else then. I would not want to repeat that either.
