3 Reasons why you should buy a Classic Stand Mixer over an Artisan Stand Mixer

The Rapid Mix attachment guarantees that your mixture comes out light and fluffy every time.

Classic Stand Mixers come with three attachments: a whisk, dough hook, and paddle. You can buy additional attachments to turn your classic stand mixer into an artisan stand mixer, but you’ll have to buy them separately (and they aren’t cheap!).

Classic Stand Mixers last for years of heavy use. This is partially because they are made of metal rather than plastic like an Artisan Stand Mixer is — so after all these years of hard work you won’t have to keep replacing it! Moreover, the metal construction means that it’s much more durable than the Artisan counterpart.

Classic Stand Mixers often come with a much longer warranty than the Artisan counterpart. The classic stand mixer should be more reliable than the artisan, that’s for sure.

I’m not saying the Artisan is a bad mixer, but when you look into it and you do some math, it doesn’t really take very long to think about what exactly you are spending your money on. At least with Classics you’re also getting a fair exchange value for your hard earned cash. And even though they aren’t as expensive as they used to be, there are still many people who prefer Classic Models over Artisans; just because they know what they are getting into and have already spent some time with them.

But I just wanted to stress out the 3 Reasons why you should buy a Classic Stand Mixer over an Artisan Stand Mixer; and got this article going to make my point loud and clear.

Research has shown that people who use a mixer for at least 10 years (here are 10 reasons why) have less heart disease, weight control, and cholesterol level problems than those who don’t use a mixer. And if you’re one of them who indeed has got at least some of those problems then I’m sure you’ll surely want to read on and read about the below reasons before buying any new machine ;).

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Stand Mixer and what does it do?

A stand mixer is an electric mixing machine used in food preparation for kneading, beating, whipping, or even grating ingredients. Usually the stand mixer is mounted on a base which incorporates various attachments such as the whisk, dough hook, and paddle.

What does a Stand Mixer do better than a hand mixer?

A stand mixer provides power that it uses to mix ingredients together in large quantities; usually more than what would be done by hand. The attachments are easy to change and materials last longer than when compared with a hand-held mixer which can wear out quickly if used too much.

Is a Stand Mixer worth the money?

If you are planning on cooking often and if you can afford it I would say yes! If you’re going to be using it a lot make sure that the attachments that come with the package are satisfactory to your needs otherwise you can get separate attachments much cheaper than buying them together with a new stand mixer (but then again, this might not always be an option).

How much does a Stand Mixer cost?

There are plenty of other brands but I don’t use them so I don’t know what they cost. If you are planning on buying a new one and you’re wondering how much it costs, do some research before deciding to go for one specific brand and model. I would say what ever brand you choose, make sure it’s worth the price.

Why is KitchenAid my favorite stand mixer?

KitchenAid is the best over all, especially when it comes to durability and price, usually with an affordable price tag which allows for a long time of use before having to replace your stand mixer. Moreover, they offer great service to back their products up.

Should I buy a hand-held or a stand mixer?

Traditionally, hand-held mixers are used only for small amounts of ingredients and making things like cakes or cookies which doesn’t require a lot of time to do. Otherwise if you’re looking for a heavy-duty mixer that will allow you to knead dough or make large quantities of ingredients then chances are you will want to get one that is mounted on the kitchen counter.

Final Thoughts:

So, if you’re the type of person who would prefer to use a hand-held instead of a stand mixer and have less than 10 years old then you should go for the Artisan.

On the other hand, for people with at least 10 years experience in how to use a mixer, be it with a Classic or an Artisan then I recommend Classic Models over Artisans.
