Are they worth the price? I mean the actual Kitchenaid brand, not any other brand. I am looking into the specific Kitchenaid brand because some of the attachments could be REALLY helpful for me. If you have one, how sturdy is it? How often do you use it? How does it do for storage, is it easily taken down to be put away? How is it for cleaning?

If you have one and an extra attachment (not just the included) are they? is it worth the price? what do you have an what have you used it for? This would be a pretty pricey investment for me, I live on post in a house with a small kitchen but I feel like this would benefit me, and I can make room to put it away when not in use (or just leave it out if I use it enough).

I have had other mixers, I have a "stand mixer" and also a hand mixer, but I am wanting this specific brand because of the potential of all the seems like there's a million of them. Any reviews, good or bad are welcome!!! or just keep it bumped so maybe I eventually get an answer!! lol

I LOVE my kitchenaid. I have the food grinder(I use it to grind my own meats quite often), the pasta extruder, the pasta rollers and the grain mill

All totally worth the price for us. I use it every day(often more than once)

I have one, plus the pasta extruder attachment, and they are awesome. Best thing I own. Plus, making spaghetti is fun.

Yes.  this is the one I have 
It's 5qt size and the bowl lowers/lifts rather than the mixer portion tilting back. It took a little getting used to that, but now I hardly notice.

Quoting VannaMae307:

is the restaurant version the 600 series?

Quoting Samantha_McKay:

Don't get the icecream maker attachment, it's lame. But yes, the mixer is well worth the price. I have the restaurant version in my kitchen and I have used it daily for the last 5 years.
