Love that color! Must be Imperial Gray, right?

Mine is in Almond. Eventually, the K5SS, at one time, and the tilt-head machines were offewred in this beautiful Imperial Gray color!

Yes, that's Imperial Grey. It's the only decent-sized pic I could find that showed the lift handle very well. Mine is Empire Green. I love the Imperial Grey and the Imperial Black, but they don't go well with my kitchen. The only reason I considered the Susan Kamen pink is because of the charity and the fact that the satin pink on the Accolade (which is what I considered before I found the smokin' deal on the Pro 6) is a really nice color.

That brings up another point... Has anybody ever done a "post a picture of your kitchen" thread? I literally built my kitchen from doing the drywall to hanging the microwave and installing the ceiling fan...

I bought another K'Aid stand mixer - the K5SS.

For the most part, I'm mainly testing it to see if it holds up, since there have been some dissatisfied owers of K'Aid stand mixers. I want to test the waters and see if it is as good as the K45SS Classic which I had for 19 years.

Nothing wrong with the K45SS. Getting back into baking like I used to do years ago.

What an interesting idea! I planned and (half-built, half-extended) mine, and am quite pleased with the results. Sadley, there's no seeing the bones of it under all the stuff on the counters and hanging from the dual potracks! I could certainly wish for a larger one...I was forced to do the extension just to get the small-ish arborite table AND the chairs in the space, never mind actually installing some venting that actually went somewhere....

Here is the kitchen picture thread.

I actually didn't install the venting, though there is venting available in my attic. I oftentimes wish I did now. :(

I have a Kitchen Aid K5A made by Hobart which was bought in 1975.
I use it very frequently for cakes, cookies, bread and pasta doughs. I just bought the pasta roller and ice cream attachments which I am really enjoying.
I have never had any problem with this machine. If I ever do, I assume it can be repaired. At least I hope so.

It more than likely CAN be fixed if it breaks. That's 31 years you've have that!

Surprisingly, I just found out that the K'Aid K45SS Classic and the K5SS are STILL made pretty much the same as when Hobart made them. The quality didn't go down at all.

I own both. Haven't really gotten into, or bought much of the attachments,
but I DID get the water jacket for the K5SS.

I might get the food grinder and a few other accessories.

And Corey, you know I just can't resist, but the quality of our newer bowl lift models IS getting better and better....

Oh, I don't doubt that.

I'm just glad that K'Aid realises that that quality is very important when it comes to making and selling their stand mixers.

And I'm so glad that the K'Aid K5SS that I bought last month still has good solid quality contruction and materials inside.
