Having owned my own KitchenAid stand mixer since 2001, I am quite thrilled for of our soon-to-be winner!  My original 4 quart mixer has seen me through thick and thin.  I cannot even begin to count the endless batches of cake batter and icing it has endured over the years.  Not to mention cookie dough, pizza dough… I could go on!  So I can only image how awesome this powerful 7 quart model will be!

Just look at what this bad boy can do!  It’s KitchenAid’s best performing stand mixer with their most powerful motor yet.  Breezing through longer mixing times with less heat build up and a smooth, quiet sound.  All while sporting an incredibly large stainless steel bowl…. …  we’re talking the capacity to mix 14 DOZEN cookies at one time!!!  Can you image?!  With a 2-Year hassle free replacement warranty and a retail price of $549, this is one spectacular prize!!
