KitchenAid mixers are now sold in three series: Classic, Artisan and Professional.
The Classic series is made for occasional home cooks who want a good mixer for everyday purposes, like making smoothies and pizza dough. They have 300-watt motors. The Professional Mixer is made for commercial bakeries as well as serious bakers at home who need more power than the Classic line has to offer, with a 600-watt motor that can make bread dough in less time than other models do at max speed.
The Artisan line was released to the market in 2009 and has been getting rave reviews ever since. It consists of three models: 4.1-quart-capacity single-speed, 7.5-quart-capacity dual speed and a 9.5-quart-capacity triple speed machines. It is made for home chefs who want to make their own dough for pastries, breads, cakes and more regularly. All three versions come with extra attachments that make whatever dough recipe you have in mind a real breeze to whip up, including a pasta roller, pizza cutter, shredding disk or dough hook accessory for those who like to make their own pizza crusts and bagels once in a while.
The Artisan model is made especially for home cooks who are serious about their bread, cakes and pastries. It has a number of features that separate it from the rest.
KitchenAid KSM150PSER is an attractive machine that would blend nicely into any kitchen décor. Its digital touchpad is just one feature that makes this stand out from past models. Touchpads allow for easy speed adjustments, but the Artisan series doesn`t have the Tilt-Head design. This means that if you want to scrape down your bowl or add ingredients, you will have to do so with a spatula or spoon. All of the Artisan series has a removable bowl.
KitchenAid KSM150PSER comes with the following accessories:
A flat beater, dough hook and wire whip that is all you need to create practically anything. There`s also a wire whip, flat beater and dough hook that come in 4.5-quart-capacity mixers that are made especially for the Artisan series. The whisk is another awesome tool that is used for meringues and whipped cream. There`s also a pasta roller/cutter, which makes your homemade pasta a breeze to whip up.
Which mixer is better, the KitchenAid or the Artisan series?
In the KitchenAid Professional 5-quart mixer review, there are six factors that were discussed before making a buying decision.
The KitchenAid KSM150PSer mixer is also sold under several other brand names, such as Breville and Oster, but it is primarily known as the KitchenAid, or sometimes better known as the KSM150.
Bosch and Kitchenaid both have motors that are 900 watts with 2.2 amps of power. The Bosch has a 3-year warranty while the Kitchenaid has a 1-year warranty. In the Kitchenaid mixer reviews, it is proven that the Bosch Mixer has a better motor than the Kitchenaid.
KitchenAid`s Classic Series of Stand Mixers are very comparable to Bosch`s designed with a metal cage and metal bowl. Bosch beat out Kitchenaid in almost every category, with better speeds and time. Due to the difference in bowl size and speed, there is an obvious difference in price between what each brand sells this particular model for.
What are some pros and cons of each type of mixer?
The Artisan series has many more accessories and attachments than the classic series. The one big con is that you can damage the motor in this model if you are not gentle while mixing batter. On the pro side, there is a pasta roller attachment that makes making homemade pasta a breeze. Also, there`s less wear and tear on the bowl compared to its classic counterparts.
What are some other brands of mixers?
The Kitchenaid Professional line was bought by Williams-Sonoma Inc. and is a subsidiary of them. The classic series mixer bought by this company has not been updated since then.
The Kitchenaid Artisan series was released in 2010 and has gotten rave reviews since then. This model is very similar to the professional line, but with a few minor differences in the accessories that come with it. These include the pasta roller and pizza cutter attachments, as well as a mixing paddle attachment. The Artisan also comes with a flexible dough hook, which is great for the homemade pizzas you want to make once in a while at home; it`s made specifically for the Artisan series mixers.
What is a good price range for a KitchenAid mixer?
You can find the Kitchenaid Classic series for about $200. The mixer is made for home bakers who want to make their own breads and pastries, but don`t need the power of a Professional or Artisan mixer.
The Artisan series is sold in three models, with each model/color selling for around $400-$700. The 4.5-quart model comes in many different colors and sells for around $375-$400 at most stores that carry them, like Macy`s Inc., Amazon and Williams-Sonoma Inc. The 7-quart model sells for a little less; around $350-$450 throughout the internet and most stores that carry them, usually Macy`s Inc.
How many quarts is the KitchenAid Professional 5?
The KitchenAid Professional Model KSM150PSER is 4.5 quarts in size and has a maximum speed of 850 RPM. The motor is 600 watts, with 2.2 amps of power. The bowl is made out of glass, which does not scratch as easily as plastic bowls do if you are not careful with it. It has a detachable, tempered glass bowl which makes cleaning easier because you don`t have to use harsh chemicals to clean it as often as you would with plastic bowls
A review of the final product or products we purchase or consume could give us insight into the quality and value we get from our purchases, whether that be good or bad quality.
How many watts is the KitchenAid Professional 5 plus?
KitchenAid Professional 5 Plus has a motor that is 900 watts with 2.2 amps of power. The bowl is made from stainless steel and removable.
What size KitchenAid Professional 5 is better?
KitchenAid Professional 5 plus . . . It has more bowls, plates and accessories for making more meals at one time with multiple attachments and bowls!
The KitchenAid mixer has five speeds, rather than only three as in the Bosch model. On the fastest speed, the Bosch Mixer can produce up to 12 cups of flour per minute, while on its highest speed the KitchenAid can produce 13 cups per minute. The difference in speed between the slowest and fastest settings is not very substantial between either mixer.
KitchenAid KSM150PSER is a powerful mixer that can get the job done. Whether you are mixing batter for bread or kneading dough for homemade pasta, this model has you covered. It is not as powerful as Bosch MMK30M030, but it does the job just fine. The only con I could find was that you have to be very careful when mixing batter, because it can cause damage to the motor if you are not gentle. Other than that one small inconvenience, it is a dependable and powerful mixer for an affordable price.
