Betrayed by Kitchenaid - is it possible that the stand mixer is Not All That?

piedsdesanges | Sep 7, 200703:38 PM     97

Can I just say that I have owned the vaunted kitchenaid stand mixer, professional model, for 13 months and it just broke down? I took it into a repairman (warranty ended a month ago, natch), and he said that one of the gears is stripped.

This guy is of the licensed kitchenaid repair people and he says that he almost only deals with the new kitchenaid stand mixers, that the old ones never break down.

I'm so pissed! I also have a 1950s Kenwood A700 (see pic here: http://www.kenwoodworld.com/assets/my...) with all of the attachments.

I bought the Kenwood second hand almost 13 years ago and it NEVER breaks down. And it's over half a century old!

Anyone else let down by their stand mixer? And when did you get it?
