But the reason for the low rating is. It says it comes with nylon coated beater and nylon coated dough hook and a pour in shield. I didn’t get the pour in shield and my stuff was not nylon coated and looked all beat up.
I’ve ordered refurbished kitchen aid products before with success but, this purchase was a flop. The flat beater had a crack in the coating, the motor head was so badly aligned that the locking mechanism could not engage. The one time i did get it to lock it was so out of sync that the whole thing vibrated while operating. Returned and purchased a new one, the difference was worth the $30. You just never know if you will get the good one or the junk.
Fairly pleased, but the mix head wobbles more than seems right. I did check the neck screw from the hollow part, and it’s tight. It seems new, only has a tiny flaw in the finish on the mix head. Love the bowl with the big vertical handle. The motor seems strong and smooth so far. I have only made cookies, and it did well. The little black knobs on the levers to lock the mix head and adjust the speed have some sharp edges, but i learned how to not touch those edges. Hope it really lasts well, at least 5 to 7 years. My old one is over 30 years old and went to a new home for occasional use.
I just purchased this mixer and it arrived at my house today. It looks like a brand new mixer. There are no scratches or dings anywhere. I was hesistent on purchasing a refurbished mixer, but after reading the reviews i felt slightly better. Trust me when i say this, you will not regret it.
- love my refurbished mixer!
- Love My Kitchen Aid 😍💖
- Beautiful AND functional!
KitchenAid RRK150ER 5 Qt. Artisan Series – Empire Red (Certified Refurbished)
This is the second one i order because the first one made a clinking noise from improper whisk contact with the bowl and the body of the mixer had a superficial 1 inch dent. Very unhappy with the way it arrived, see pictures. The replacement mixer, however, is awesome. Only has a small nick but no funny noises while doing a “dry test run”. I will be testing it soon and will update when i make my next batch of baked goods. This one was shipped by itself in it’s original box (much better choice than the first one).
This is my wife’s favorite tool. Some of the attachments don’t work that great but such a good mixer and sausage maker.
I love kitchenaid and have never had an issue with mixers previous to this one but on this one, the attachment between the head and the body seems to be a little loose. This is not the case with most kitchenaid product i’ve had before. Also, it’s best to just get kitchenaid through them, for the warranty. You have that warranty no matter what but if you go through kitchenaid instead of other people, that warranty is hassle-free. Kitchenaid is the best when it comes to warranty but they have issues handling their product when it goes through other sellers. You have to ask for a different department for the warranty in those cases. Kitchenaid twitter did well to help fix this for me but it’s just best to buy through them. You can probably find them selling here, on amazon, too, so.
I’ve wanted a kitchenaid for ever but could not afford it. I found this certified reconditioned one and it was the best purchase i have ever made. I’ve used it 4 times in a week making christmas cookies and it looked brand new and has exceeded my expectations.
A couple of weeks ago i finally caved and bought a reconditioned kitchenaid artisan after years of wanting one. Between the free shipping, the great amazon. Com price and the instant $25 off coupon from amazon, i got it for $135 bucks delivered. Great, right?the mixer came in a few days and it was in very good shape. The only issue i could see was a slight bit of chipping on the paint around the silver band. The bowl had a tiny dink in it, but not enough of a dent to interfere with the beaters. But, the paddle that came with the mixer was broken. I immediately called kitchenaid, because the mixer came with a 6 month warrantee. And yes, they were willing to send me a paddle for free. But, they were backordered and wouldn’t be able to get one to me for several weeks, even with a rush put on it.
I used it to bake the cake for my sister’s bridal shower. It was 3 layers, and i messed up the first batch and had to start over, so i got alot of use out of it in one night. It works beautifully, and there are no scratches or anything; haven’t had any problems with my refurbished product.
Refurbished: very impressed with the beauty and quality (new) w/o no scratches, dents or dings. I don’t have much counter space, but i don’t want to put it out of sight. As a certified chef (class of 2016) a kitchenaid mixer was a must have for me.
There was a small problem with the order, but ‘always quality’ customer service stepped up and fixed the problem quickly. Thanks guys 🙂 the mixer was a gift for my elderly mother and she love this mixer. She has used it daily and has had no problems. She loves the antique copper color too.
I love this mixer, loved the price even more. I make pond cakes which are really dense. A regular hand mixer would burn out in no time. This mixer is well able to handle the weight of the batter and makes the the cake moist and appealing. I also, make homemade breads and i just wiz right thru. I was a little skeptical in buying a refurbished anything, but now am glad i did as did not want to spend $500 for a mixer. If you are in need of a mixer might want to check this out as well as the price.
I looked on kitchenaid’s website and saw that the 5qt artisan was $430, so i came to amazon to find it cheaper. I sorted by the lowest price, as one does, and found this thing for half the price. Now, i am the kind of person who never buys used things because i’m always worried that the first person wanted to get rid of it because something was wrong with it. But since this said “factory refurbished,” i decided to look into it. I read the description about it going back through the factory inspection so that all the mechanics work perfectly well and the only thing that could possibly be wrong with it would be marks in the paint. It also comes with all the original parts (3 beaters, a bowl, and an instruction/recipe book) and a 6 month warranty. 5 star rating with over 400 reviews, so i decided to buy it. I also paid a little more for the 2 year warranty, just in case. It had a couple tiny scratches on it here and there, but you wouldn’t notice unless you were lookin for them.
*update* i’ve had my refurbished kitchenaid for about a year now and it’s still going strong with regular use. I still love iti have had this for about 2 months and use it all the time. Its refurbished but, works like its brand new. It came with 3 beating attachments and a metal bowl. It is very heavy to move but, very easy to clean. Baking has never been so fast.
This stand mixer is powerful and easy to use. The ability to add attachments is a great bonus that makes this one of the most flexible tools to have in the kitchen. I’ve already made several recipes with the help of the kitchenaid, and the results have been terrific. Clean-up is also very simple.
Loud motor seem when in use, even on stir mode. It heats up rapidly much too just on whisking egg whites. Yet, it nonetheless works very good sufficient & item appears brand new with no indications of scratches or use & tear everywhere.
This is my to start with kitchenaid mixer and expectations were higher. It arrived in flawless form, with a best complete. I created a flowerless cake and it was perfect. I included a kitchenaid pasta maker attachement and tried out my hand at selfmade pasta. I figured i would try the kitchenaid recipe initial, and see how the complete proces labored. It had a tricky time with the dough (thirty sec with the blade, 2 minutes with a dough hook). I connected the pasta maker and all was functioning properly. I observed it was slowing down and rushing up, even if i wasn’t feeing any dough via it. Then it stopped turning even however the motor was nevertheless operating. Only bought to operate 1/four of the dough and failed to end that. The up coming day, i experimented with it yet again with no attachments. Very same sluggish down/speed up problem. Referred to as kitchenaid, who reported it was out of warranty, but they would substitute it in any case.
Will work excellent and appears to be manufacturer new, there are no scratches of mars of any variety on the end or the bowl. I like the deal with on the bowl, assists keep it to get the contends poured into pan (s) and to take away it for cleaning. A friend has the suspended bowl form and is generally grousing what a soreness it is to get rid of and place back on. I was a tiny leary of obtaining a refurbished unit but it really is from amazon so i knew i would be taken care of if there was a difficulty so i went for it. The holiday baking year is setting up so this small red baby is about to be applied a great deal.
I had bought this mixer for one particular objective only. I’ve located that for shut to a hundred batches that i have produced this mixer has labored flawlessly. I experienced burned out numerous mixers with some of the doughs that i made. So i at last bought the kitchenaid manufacturer. This has finished up preserving income for me. It is a factory reconditioned, but like i said in the title i’ve owned it for for 5 a long time now and am really contented. My difficulty is that the shots should really precisely reflect what you are getting not what you could get if you acquire accessories. The description does properly tell you what you recieve with this obtain.
I am obtaining no challenges with how it performs, besides an east repair. When i 1st got it i washed the bowl like ordinary and it gave off this gray/metallic residue. I was fearful so i looked up how to correct it and all you have to do is coat the within with oil (it is olive oil but i applied vegetable) and i stuffed it up with warm water. I let it sit and recurring just to make sure and it labored like a attraction. General i think this is worthy of the investment decision and a complete steal. Mine came with the dough, paddle, and whisk/whip attachment.
Great product at a fantastic price. I am satisfied with the client company. My equipment arrived with burnished attachments, and when i messaged their customer assistance division about my possessing a trouble with it touching my foodstuff, they despatched me the nylon coated flat beater and dough hook as promised in the description free of price tag. For any person who’s on the fence about paying for this refurbished item (like i was), go ahead and do it-you won’t regret it.Also, really don’t fail to remember your four-12 months defense prepare. I am extremely content with my new toy. 🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂.
