I have to say I've never had a problem with Kitchenaid, BUT, have read many reviews / heard many problems others have experienced.
So I guess I've just been lucky?
Apparently they are made in China and quality control / assurance is very spotty or insufficient.
So this has made me feel very leery and uncomfortable of purchasing Kitchenaid. It's expensive. I bought a stand mixer for the color; because it was purple; but I don't think I'd buy another Kitchenaid anything, until things change in the quality department.
I have bought several brands of crockpots in the past, and might again if I get them at Goodwill. But if I'm buying new, then I'm buying Rival. I've never had weird problems with Rival. Tho I'm sure someone else reading this thread, may have.
