Bought A New Mixer

I decided to buy a new stand mixer.  The one I have now is a Kitchen Aid, bowl lift, with some extra attachments.  I consered Bosch, and others, but decided on the Viking.  I never used Viking.  Anyone own one?  Now have to decide who gets my Kitchen Aid.  Am considering my stepson's wife in NY, or my friend in FL.

I own a 7qt. Viking, I haved used it for about 1 1/2 years, so far so good, I generally bake bread 1-2 times weekly and have had no problem.

Thanks for your input.  Hopefully, I'll get it by next week.

I did the same thing. I had the 7qt Kitchen Aide with the bowl lift (actually I regretted it the day after I bought it, but it was good enough to burn out rather quickly) so I purchased the 7 qt Viking and have not looked back ever since.


I hope that you enjoy the new Viking and have the same pleasurable experience that I have had with mine.

I also had a hand held mixer by Kitchen Aid, which I used two or three times.  The last time I tried to use it it didn't work, and of course, the waranty had just run out a month before.  I called Kitchen Aid and hoped they would work with me to replace it, but they didn't so I bought a Cuisinart since I have had such good luck with their products, and with the service.  I wasn't all that satisfied with the bowl lift mixer at all but at least it works.  I should be getting my new mixer sometime next week.  Got free S&H, plus free blender attachment.
