I give this product 5 stars time a million! I received a [product:kitchenaid-classic-4.5-qt-stand-mixer--white-k45ss] as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago, and it remains one of my all time favorite gifts. I use it regularly and has made my life 10 times easier than when I was using a hand mixer. Not only is it convenient, but the quality is phenomenal, and cleanup is a breeze. I have the wire whisk, flat beater, and dough hook, but the attachment options are ridiculous! They make a meat grinder, pasta press, slicer/ shredder just to name a few. Oh, and not to mention it's aesthetically pleasing -- I have this stand mixer in white, and it not only brightens up my kitchen, but also makes the space look altogether higher end. You can find this item most affordably on #amazon, or at other retailers such #target and #jcpenny.
