This is a vote for $600 to purchase a KitchenAid KP26M1XER 6 Qt. Professional 600 Series Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer - Empire Red.
The actual cost to purchase this on Amazon is currently $499.95. An additional $100.05 is included in the vote to cover any unlikely, unexpected expenses and will not be spent unless completely necessary.
With this stand mixer purchase, Kate Cook and I will lend/donate several attachments, including a metal grinder and a slicer/grinder. Many other useful attachments are available but will be purchased as needed later.
Whirlpool is a customer that I support at work. I have the ability to get special pricing on many of their items. I searched the portal this morning and I can get this exact model for $249 (may be shipping costs) but it’s refurbished. There are 4 different color options currently available.
Coy, this is fantastic! Thank you! I am not going to change the wording of the vote but if the vote passes we will go with a refurb model via Coy (unless for some reason we cannot) and will only spend the amount required for it.
