see a few K45 up for sale on Ebay......is there a huge difference between that and a 5 quart? I'll still use my bread machine for bread making.

If you get a K45, you have a better chance of getting a color if that is what you wish. Hobart made some of them in a few colors.

I like the 5 quart more than the K45 because I like the bowl lift mechanism better than tilt back, they have more power, and of course more capacity. I also like the hot/cold water jacket you can use on the 5 qt, but can't get for the smaller mixer.

I like the additional power also for running the attachments like the meat grinder, flour mill, etc.

My friend's Hobart Kitchenaid 5 qt mixer arrived yesterday!!!!!!!

Her family is freaking out! They are worried at the "massive size" and are intimated by it I think.

My friend is happy though. She is not really into more than baking cakes and pies. I am hoping to get her into the breads, rolls, and cookie doughs that will show her family why you get a heavy duty mixer rather than a lightweight one!

Any advice for my Friend?

And thanks to a few pals here who explained that I needn't fear burning up my motor making bread all the time, I have since nixed the bread machine and have it waiting in the garage for the next garage sale.

Nothing can possibly replace this jewel...and nothing will likely ever need to.
I've got the same model in the color black. My parents gave it to me for Christmas two years ago. I use it CONSTANTLY for bread making as well. My Godson has food allregies. Unkie RJ makes him his bread. :)

The issue i have with my bowl lift model is scraping cake batter down from the sides of the bowl. I think it might be easier with a tilt head.
Mind you , I wouldnt trade my pro 6 because i like the power and the capacity. But if they made a big tilt head and if it held up as well as this 6qt does it might move me to get it. But I dont think those 2 if's will ever come to pass.
Hey! I saw you on the Kitchenaid Conversations forum, didn't I! You were asking about your mixer!
