While buying a brand new kitchen mixer may be fun, it is frequently a hard decision. There are so many stand mixers on the market, all having remarkable claims. Which one should you purchase? Might a KitchenAid Mixer Artisan be the right fit? Here are a few things to consider regarding the KitchenAid Artisan mixers.

Advantages of the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer

Big volume - A five quart bowl allows many batches to be made at once.

Strong motor - Enjoy making lots of goodies? The Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer can handle recipes having up to 9 cups of all-purpose flour.

Uniform mixing - A 10 speed slide control changes smoothly between whipping, stirring, and mixing. Seeing as the beaters contact the mixing bowl in 67 places, the items are completely mixed.

Simple clean-up - The stainless steel mixing bowl and the nylon-coated attachments can be washed in the dishwasher. The pouring shield helps keep the surrounding counter clean.

Can perform a variety of kitchen jobs - By purchasing different add-ons, the Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer can become a complete kitchen machine doing many chores including making ice cream, stuffing sausage, and slicing vegetables.

Choice of colors - With over 20 different colors offered, you can easily color-coordinate your kitchen and other appliances with your KitchenAid Mixer Artisan.

Tilt-head for easy access to the ingredients and beaters - The KitchenAid Artisan 5 qt stand mixer is the largest capacity tilt-head mixer offered by KitchenAid.

Fail-safe warranty - If the mixer fails for any reason in the first year, KitchenAid will replace it without any argument, sending a replacement stand mixer to you and paying for the pick-up of the failed mixer.

Disadvantages of the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer

Space required - Since the head tilts back, the KitchenAid Artisan might be too tall to fit under your kitchen cabinet while it is running. Make sure there is room to slide it into the open on the counter when you are ready to work.

Insufficient power or size - If you regularly make more than one batch or use whole grain flours, the Artisan may not be large enough or strong enough to fit your needs. KitchenAid makes two models with more power: the Pro 5 Plus and the Pro 600.

Less stability for thicker doughs - KitchenAid bowl-lift mixers have greater stabililty when processing thick recipes than the tilt-head models.

PowerKnead dough hook unavailable - The Artisan KitchenAind Series comes with a nylon-coated C dough hook instead of the PowerKnead dough hook available in the Pro 5 Plus or Pro 600 models.

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixers are well-built appliances designed to operate for many years. The large capacity and ease of use is just right for many kitchens.
