I bought a 6qt KA less than a yr ago to use in addition to my 4.5qt. It says professional series....what a crock!!! This is the weakest, wimpiest mixer ever. It overheats and shuts itself down (while making buttercream, not like im making fondant in it and never would). Last night in the middle of making cake batter (real struggle for a mixer right) the gears start grinding and it dies. I had to transfer everything to a big bowl and use my hand mixer to finish. It had no problem handling the batter but a $500 stand mixer cant??? Super frustrated!! PLUS this is my second one because the first one ground gears right out of the box before I ever even put anything in the mixing bowl!
