KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer

The KitchenAid Artisan mixer is one of the most popular stand mixers in the world. The Artisan features a 5-quart stainless steel bowl that’s perfect for most recipes, including breads, cakes, and other doughs. The powerful 350-watt motor creates enough power to knead dough as well as whisk eggs for angel food cake or beat cream cheese for frosting. The tilt-back bowl makes it easy to add ingredients and you don’t have to worry about any ingredients splashing out because the mixing attachment locks securely into place. This model comes with two mixing heads: a flat beater and dough hook. These attachments work great with heavy doughs and batters.

Which bowl is better? Do I need to get a bigger one?

A: In general, unless you’re making large batches of cookies or cake batter every day, you don’t need to go out of your way to get something bigger than 5 quarts. Many people choose a 5-quart bowl because of their favorite recipes, but if you know someone who needs to make a lot of cookies, cakes, or other smaller batches then they may want to get a bigger model. The mixing bowls are the exact same size.

Which type of metal is the mixing bowl made of? Is it dishwasher safe?

The bowl is made of solid stainless steel with rounded corners that’s resistant to chipping and keeps its shine inside and out. This mixer has no moving parts so it’s completely dishwasher-safe.

Can I attach any of the other mixing attachments to this model?

Yes, you can attach all the other mixer accessories to this model. This includes the accessory kit, meat grinder, food grinder, food processor and pasta extruder.
