The Viking VSM700 Professional 7-Quart Stand Mixer has received mixed reviews from users. There is considerable debate as to whether this is a good product or not. Some customers that have had experience with other machines say that this Viking mixer is better than the ones produced by other brands. They believe that this is a powerful machine and can knead a lot of dough very quickly. They state that it takes a lot less time to knead the dough using this mixer versus using other mixers on the market.
The Stir Settings feature slows down the start speed on the Viking appliance so that the flour is incorporated slowly into the dough, which prevents puffing. Many users are happy with the attachments that come with the Viking stand mixer and said that they were much sturdier than the ones offered by the competition. While others loved the rear wheels on the Viking mixer that make it easy to move around.
Other users think it is a source of trouble. It is mentioned that a lot of the ingredients do not get mixed properly because the mixer blades do not completely extend deep enough. This leaves some reviewers believing that the mixer is useless. Some reviewers suggested that a “Kill Switch” should be added to the mixer to kill the power once the mixer head has been raised.
Others complain that the unit is not durable and that the paint on the machine wears off after it has been used a few times. Other users are unhappy with the customer service provided by Viking and rated it as extremely poor.
It is hard to say with certainty whether this would be a good purchase or not. There are too many complaints about customer service and quality issues that need to be put to rest. From our research, we would believe the stand mixer may not be a good buy for those that don’t do a lot of bread baking.
