Standard Use: If you use this mixer for just cake baking and cupcakes and whipcream creation then you need to probably get the kitchenaid if you want a wide range of colors. But if you want to make pizza dough or wheat breads or other things on a daily or even weekly basis you need to get this mixer because both will probably strip their gears out over the next five years but only one has a five year warranty and local replacement. So make the smart decision like I did, a mixer is going to be loud no matter what but if you want bread for home then you need to buy this kenmore Elite Stand Mixer
I received this as a Christmas present in 2012. The adjustment screw began slipping during use, finally denting the bowl and chipping the paddle as I was mixing. In October I asked for a replacement. The replacement lasted 8 months before it developed an electrical short--would turn itself on, and sometimes wouldn't work at all. The 3rd unit had a damaged base that would not allow the bowls to lock into place. And when I asked for a refund, I was told that since it was more than 12 months since the original purchase I was out of luck even though not one of the mixers lasted that long.
We had this Kenmore mixer for a few months, using it only once or twice per month. One day it started on its own. We unplugged it to shut it off. When we plugged it back in, it blinked and did not work. According to the instructions, it does this when you plug it in with a speed other than 0 set. It seems it lost the 0 or OFF setting. The instructions said to return it to the store, so we did. After a bit of hassle, they exchanged it. A few months later, with the same light use, the second mixer turned itself on also, and quit working. This time I called customer service, as instructed by a card that came in the box (instructions still say to return to the store). I had to leave a message. It has been 3 weeks, and no one has called me back. We will not get another Kenmore mixer.

Love this mixer. It's very heavy duty and has mixed everything perfectly. It did require a bit of adjustment out of the box, but we have never had to adjust it again and we've mixed quite a bit with it. Would recommend.
Purchased this item 18 Months ago. Used it maybe 20 times. Unit began turning on by itself. Turned on with the head up or down. Then it began timing out and would not turn on for a number of hours. I can see from other review that this is not an uncommon occurrence. Think twice before buying!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know many say it's too loud but thats because it has a more powerful and reliable motor then the Kitchen Aid. Love it it's solid uses all the Kitchenaid accessories. You really notice the difference when you make bread with it the Kitchen aid can not hang with it.
First of all I want to say I am a big supporter of Sears, I have been a customer all my life. But I have had this Elite model for about 4 years, so I am an old hand about this mixer. I paid over $180.00 for it but now it is nothing but a boat anchor. Sears themselves will not repair them when they break down and the small appliance repair person Sears referred me to won't even repair them. The repair people told me that these mixers are made in China and they are hopeless to repair. I had a $15.00 hand mixer that lasted over 15 years, and I inherited my grandmother's Sunbeam stand mixer that is older than me and still works ~ and I am 62 years old. So I think when you pay this much for a mixer that Sears should put a longer warranty on them (dream on) and AT LEAST repair them when they break. It turns out that this repair shop WILL service the old Sunbeam so guess what I am going to do? The Elite was noisy and was so quirky it would just begin to start up when not in use while the dial was on "off" for no reason. I even wrote a story about it being possessed that made others laugh at the time, but now it is not so funny when I can't even repair a $200.00 mixer that only lasted less than 4 years.

This mixer is not the quality that Kenmore is known for. I received this mixer as a gift for Christmas. The first time I used it, I noticed that the paint on the paddle was beginning to chip off. This is poor quality and would like to receive a replacement of the paddle or possibly exchange the mixer for something of better quality.
I bought this for my wife's birthday and it was so loud that we couldn't even have a conversation while it was running. We returned it the next day and ended up with a kitchenaid professional 6000HD which is much quieter. I'm not sure if we got a bad unit or if all of them are that loud.

We bought this on sale online and picked up in store. The mixer itself is great but our's was missing the owner's manual so we didn't know how to use it without searching the web. Kenmore and Sears both were not helpful on getting a replacement!

We bought this mixer 3 years ago, when the red became available, after comparing it to the Kitchen Aid--it seemed to be a good value, and used all the Kitchen Aid attachments. We have used it less than 25 times. One night it turned on by itself-all the controls were off! We unplugged it, and a few days later we tried it in another outlet-the machine started turning when the controls were off, and the arm was raised! Then, although the light was on, the controls no longer worked. I emailed Sears, but never got a response, so I took it to the store and was told the warranty was only 1 year, and I should've bought the extended plan for 3 years. Now it's worthless, and I will never throw away my money on a Kenmore product again if this is the way they treat their customers. We currently have a complete Kenmore Elite kitchen, but when the time comes we will replace the appliances elsewhere.
