I've been out of town and didn't have access to a computer. It is the ring at the base of the head where the attachments would attach. I looked at a mixer while out of town and it appears to be a press-fit, but not sure. I may need to get a hold of the factory.

I got in touch with the factory. The ring is a press fit. They told me to use a rubber mallet and tap the ring in place. I tried that while on the phone. The ring would not stay in place. After numerous attempts the person on the phone told me to use super glue. That what I ended up doing. Ring stays in place now.

I too love my kitchen aide mixer. My mother got me one for a wedding present 25 years ago and have used it well over the years. My husband hunts and we have made venison sausage and ground venison. The one my mother had is also still running (I gave it to a friend when she passed on). It is probably about 40 years old by now.

The only thing that I wish the newer models had is the type of mixing bowl my mother's model had. It was about a quarter inch thick aluminum bowl that was a real killer. When we made meringues (spelling??) or were whipping cream we would put the bowl in the refrigerator first to cool it down and it would keep cool during the whole whipping process.

All in all a great buy.

I have a 5 quart Kitchen Aid which is 28 years old. I don't know what I'd do without it. If it ever dies, I will certainly buy a new one.
I don't think you should glue the metal ring as it must be removed to use the attachments. Maybe, I'm not thinking of the right ring.
:D

Hello,

I have wanted a KitchenAid mixer for years. There was always something going on; shortage of funds, low priority, etc. Well, I just received the new Williams-Sonoma catalog. I'm finally going to buy one. I'm sure to some, my reasons will sound silly, but here goes! The company has come out with a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in pale pink which is my favorite color. They are offering a special promo: "When you purchase this pink Artisan mixer, KitchenAid will donate $50 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation as part of their Cook for the CureŽ initiative. Established in 1982, the Foundation is dedicated to eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease through research, education, screening and treatment programs around the world. Like our other Artisan mixers, this one features planetary action to ensure thorough mixing (the beaters spin independently while rotating around the bowl). The head tilts back for easy removal of the bowl and beater. Flat beater, dough hook, wire whip and pouring shield are included. 325W, 14" x 8 1/2" x 13 3/4" high. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. When you purchase any KitchenAid Artisan mixer between 4/1/03 and 5/31/03, you'll receive a coupon for your choice of a free food grinder ($65.00 value), roto slicer/shredder ($65.00 value) or citrus juicer attachment ($35.00 value)." My mother is a two time breast cancer survivor. I felt like this mixer had my name on it! This my first visit to your site; I thought some of your might be interested. Thanks!

I swear by my vintage upright Sunbeam Mixer, complete with original glass and metal bowls and beaters.....that's older than I am! Won't tell MY age, but the mixer is from the 1940's. It also just plain looks good sitting on the counter! :)

I can't wait to get mine

I asked Santa for one (black) this year. I have wanted one for years. I am sure it will make my life alot easier, and more fun to bake. Just if your interested JennAir has a new one that you can choose your base (like copper for example) and the bowl style (tortoise shell look glass) that is dishwasher safe. The website is www.jennairattrezzi.com. Check it out. I live in Canada and it is still quite expensive around 700 Canadian.

Hi glitterchi,

I have seen the ads for the Jenn-Air appliances - have you seen the blender??? Wow - they are georgous - and the bowl I saw in one add for the mixer was this georgous leaf design.

With my Kitchenaid mixer - I find I use it a lot more if I keep it out on my counter - some people don't like to keep their appliances out but I find if I don't then I don't tend to use them.

I sure hope Sanda is paying attention!!!!! By black do you mean the dark, dark gray one, the one that looks like hard anodized pots and pans? That's the one I wanted but apparently "Santa" forgot and got me a white one - but that's ok - I still have one!!! LOL - I love my meat grinder attachment for Gazpacho - works great on those veggies!!!.
