Best Christmas Present Ever!

I got this mixer for Christmas last year (2007) and can't imagine life without it! I had a 5-quart Artisan stand mixer before, which was great, but with all the baking I do this model is much better. I love the stir feature. It has really cut down on flour accidents - flour flying out of the bowl as soon as you turn it on. It's also very stable. When I made bread dough in my old mixer, it would 'walk' across my counter. I had to stand there and keep and eye on it. This mixer barely even wobbles.
My only complaint is that because the bowl is so big, you can't beat small amounts of egg whites. If a recipe calls for 1 or 2 stiffly beaten egg whites, you'll need a different tool to do it.
Other than that, I think this is an awesome machine.
And KitchenAid has good customer service as well. The stir function on my mixer stopped working a couple of months ago. I called KitchenAid, they sent me a new mixer and a return label for me to pack up the old one and send back. No questions asked.

I have the flame red buffet casserole and I absolutely love it! I picked it as a birthday present last year and am so glad I did. The heat retention and distribution is so much better than my other nonstick cookware. There is plenty of room for cooking things like pork tenderloin medallions, and not having to do two batches. It's a pretty heavy dish, but very sturdy and well made.
