Great KitchenAid Alternative, Buy it if you make bread!!!

I have bought both a kitchenaid artisan stand mixer and this mixer and tried them side by side.

 

The recipe I made was a simple pizza dough with a maximum of 3 cups of flour and yeast and water (won't disclose whole recipe :-))

 

                                           Kenmore Elite                                                      Kitchenaid

Noise           Louder, but consistent sound (no grinding noise)           Less Loud, but ginding noises can be heard on first use

Speed                                   Same                                                                   Same

Power                                400watts                                                             325 watts

Warranty                         5 year replacement included                          1 year replacement included

Price                                      179                                                                        299

Dough Mixing Hook                 Actually kneads dough                                     Moves it around the bowl

Mixing Light                       YES                                                                            NO

Number of Mixing Bowls                2 (5Qt, and 3Qt)                                            5 Qt

Attachments                       All KitchenAid Attachments                                 All KitchenAid Attachments

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

Faulty mixer was fire hazard; not backed by Sears
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.

5 Quart 400Watt red Stand mixer with extra 3 quart bowl

This mixer was actually shipped within hours of my ordering. I was happy to see it deliver the next day. We actually used it to make pizza dough that night! I am very happy with it's performance. I was disappointed to find out that Kenmore does not makethe attachments and it took me a while to find out that the Kitchen Aid attachments will fit, except fo rthe ice cream maker.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not worth it!

So many reviews did not like the noise from this mixer, but it looks nice, has some helpful features and was on sale July 4th for $165.00 so I went to check it out. At the point of sales, they would not let me plug in the floor model to listen to it. OK! I bought the heavy thing, carried it downstairs, etc! At home, first thing, plug it in and listen! OMG! It really is LOUD! Even at the lowest speed! I though of making bread, kneeding for 15 minutes at that noise level, and said, no way! No! This product has been on the shelf for a few years! Sears and Kenmore are not reading nor listening to our comments! Otherwise, they would be on the ball, redesigning! I love my Kenmore range, bought 3 more for my tenants! So I'm a fan! But not this mixer. So I took it right back, the whole schlepping thing, ugh! Got the refund, big waste of time. If only they'd let me plug in the floor model! I went out and ordered online from another company the red KitchenAid! Got it home! quiet at all speeds! Lovely! Cost more, but I am going to live with the purchase for YEARS! No reason to suffer from an inferior design just to save money. Not worth it!

Bad switch

Had this mixer for 3yrs, the darn thing turned on in the middle of the night all by itself. I returned it to sears for a gift card credit, was able to purchase a kitchen aid. FYI the motor is really noisy on this model. Only thing this has that the kitchen aid does not is the LED light. SMH on a fire hazard switch, good thing i was home.

Good, till it starts on its own.

Generally a good mixer, very comparable to the kitchenaid. Mine is about 3 years old, and has had light use (once or twice per month max). I now have the same problem others have described, it starts by itself and won't turn off. I took it back to sears for replacement, per the warranty, and was told they couldn't swap it and to call the service people. I showed them the warranty book from one on the shelf that says bring it to the store for replacement. They still wouldn't help since I didn't have the original receipt. Kind of shameful, since it says on the Sears page that this item was added in Oct 2010, so all the red models would still have to be under warranty - at least till October of this year. If you buy one, keep in mind that yours may experience the same problem I and others are experiencing. You will have to decide if you get the value from it and compare it to the warranty on the other name brand mixer and if you are willing to accept the risk of using a device that has a history of starting on its own. A device like this, that starts on its own and doesn't turn off is a big safety hazard to the user. The last thing any of us would want is to get a sleeve caught in the mixer and then not be able to stop it. Or have it start unexpectedly when you are changing a bowl or attachment. At a minimum, unplug it before changing attachments, lifting the head, or not using. Even if I get the warranty replacement, I am concerned about the safety risk of having this in my kitchen.

Can't go the distance

Got this about two years ago. I do a lot of baking, and the rating was the same as a KitchenAid but at a lower price. After a year and a half, it started making grinding noises and the dough hook and beaters started jerking as they rotated. Today it jammed. Time to start looking for a new unit, but one that will last.

You won't get what you paid for.....

The only thing 'elite' about this product is that it hides its flaws well... for a while. The first mixer I bought for my wife was a bit noisy but after 18 months, it would start on its own and then would not start at all. Returned it for this one, same model just red. Now after 14 months, same problem. Starts on its own, no known fix. Hand mixers from the dollar store are more reliable. When I pay this much for a small appliance, it better last a lifetime.

Don't waste your money

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.

Does not work and no customer service

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.
