My Thoughts on the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer

I would have to say that my KitchenAid Mixer is one of my most prized possessions. Granted, I don’t like to brag….but my kitchenaid mixer is a beauty. If you’ve ever been to my house, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about!

The minute I bought mine, I wanted to put it to work. Immediately upon unboxing, I made a huge batch of homemade cookie dough and had a huge vat of frosting on standby for the grand occasion that was sure to follow when the batch was baked. My family raved over those cookies like they’d never seen anything so good in their lives.

Which KitchenAid mixer do I need?

A: The KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer is perfect for people who like to bake, but only plan to do so on the occasional basis. However, if you’re a serious baker, then you’ll definitely want the Artisan Stand Mixer.

What are the differences between the classic and artisan models?

The Artisan stand mixer features a 5 quart stainless steel bowl and 10 speed options with a convenient tilt-down head design for easy access and quick cleanup. The tilt head also reduces splashing when adding ingredients or pouring batter into prepared pans. You’ll also be able to use a larger bowl with the Artisan, allowing you to make more food than you could with the Classic.

How do I keep the parts from getting mixed up?

Each bowl, blade assembly and beaters are all individually numbered for easy visual identification. My mixer has both bowls numbered and I have even had several set aside for different uses just so that I could keep track of which ones belonged to which recipe.

Which stand mixer has more features?

The Artisan stand mixer comes with the 5 Quart mixing bowl, Flat Beater and Dough Hook attachments. The Classic Stand Mixer comes with the 3 quart mixing bowl and Dough Hook attachment.

The Artisan Stand Mixer has a “pulse” feature for added control for those who like to do everything by hand.

Can I use my KitchenAid Mixer to make ice cream?

Yes! With the KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment you can mix, churn and freeze your favorite ice cream recipes in half the time it takes to make them in an electric or hand-crank machine.

Which one has more attachments?

The KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer comes with both the flat beater and dough hook attachments, while the Classic Stand Mixer only comes with the dough hook attachment.

The KitchenAid Artisan mixer is wonderful; I love it! However, I do have one complaint: the bowl that comes with the Artisan Mixer is huge! If you make a lot of food very fast like my family does, then you will definitely want to invest in a larger bowl.

How long does it take to get back to normal after using my stand mixer?

The mixing action of your standard stand mixer can be quite exhausting, especially after hours of steady use. Consider buying a KitchenAid Cookbook and sharing the workload with friends and family. Or better yet, find a project that everyone can help with!

Final Thoughts:

I can’t say enough good things about my KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer. The extra features are great and it just looks really cool, too.
