t took me a little bit to remember that 7 or 8 years ago when I got my KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, I got it at Ebay I just wanted a nice simple black one. So I went to check the prices of a new one and found out that Ebay was a cheaper place. I didn’t want to wait on an auction. I was looking at brand new ones, which is what I marked when I got to Ebay. I just wanted to buy it now. I found what I wanted and just bought it (after taking several hours to look at different websites). A few years ago, I think I paid less than $300 for it, but like everything, prices change. I have also bought attachments to it, a cutting board, flat, slotted spatulas that have plastic on the ends with metal in the middle (that you can’t buy in stores around my small town). I have bought several kitchen items off Ebay from the out-of-date to unusual to items of today. Just another site to check out and compare prices.
