KitchenAid Mixer Mega Post

Why consider the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer? Come on, there must be loads of stand mixers available, what is so special about the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer?

OK, my skeptical young grasshopper, let’s take a closer look at the KitchenAid Artisan, what is under the hood if you will.

KitchenAid KSM150PSCO Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer Cornflower Blue, With Attachments

Now, you’re probably wondering what can this bad boy do? Glad you asked.

Hope you’re not going to ask can it handle jobs like a cake mix – please that’s child’s play. Not only can it do cake mixes, with ease, but how about a real challenge, things like cookie dough, pizza dough, bread dough – arm-breaking stuff. Yep, that poses no problems whatsoever. It may be hard to imagine just how taxing it is to mix dough by hand, so just try it and see if you can stick with it until the end. It is extremely hard on your hands, arms, shoulders, back, etc. I learned this the hard way. My hands took a beating. So, I looked for a reliable piece of equipment to help me out.

I had always heard that KitchenAid appliances hold up very well over time. And so far so good. Ours is going strong since about 2000 or 2001. That brings me to another point, how much time do you spend researching products before purchasing them? It has gotten absolutely ridiculous. It is next to impossible to find products that work as described, that won’t blow up with normal use, that will work more than a few times before giving out, that won’t have you on tech support for weeks on end, that don’t require you to order replacement parts that are always on back order, and so forth. If you want to avoid those nightmares, then you will have to do proper research.

Well, the good news is the KitchenAid Artisan 5 quart Stand Mixers are top notch. It is rare to find a line of products that gets nearly 5 out of 5 stars consistently. You just don’t see that these days. In fact, out of well over 1,930 people gave it 4.7/5.0. That is impressive!

So, what do customers think about the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixers?

For the most part, they love them! Comments include “clean-up is simple”, “beautiful”, “elegant”, and “the glass bowl is gorgeous”.

As at the time of writing this, there have been over customer 2,000 reviews, with over 95% of them being very positive, so why not check out some of this feedback for yourself?

Probably your biggest problem will be how to decide which KitchenAid mixer to get. That is a tough one. When I got mine I needed something in a hurry and ended up with a white unit. If I had known about all of these fantastic rich colors, who knows I might have spent ages trying to decide and may have come home with two: the dark blue units are gorgeous (Cobalt Blue and Electric Blue), but the red units are wonderfully bold and sassy (Candy Apple Red and Empire Red). Then of course you have browns, whites, blacks, grey, yellow, green, orange, and on and on.

That’s why we made the big-a$$ chart for you. This is a time saver, all the fabulous colors on one page.

Well, there you have it. Tons of wonderful colors to choose from to make a lifetime of memories for you and the whole family. You know, a few years ago we had options such as buy ready-made or make it home-made, but today with all of the allergies, other health problems, and poor food sources that are chemically laden, homemade is the safest option.

KitchenAid Accessories

We also recommend the following two accessories, which will let you do even more jobs with your KitchenAid stand mixer:

KitchenAid Grain MillThis all-metal Grain Mill attachment grinds wheat, oats, corn, rice, and other low-moisture, low-oil grains. Using freshly milled grains brings a hearty taste and texture to your baked goods. When you bake with home ground flour you will get all of the good you could possibly get from a grain. Choose from ‘cracked’ to extra-fine consistency. Includes a cleaning brush.

KitchenAid Ravioli MakerThe most versatile stand mixer now allows you to practice authentic Italian cooking with this Ravioli Maker Attachment from KitchenAid! The specially designed rollers pinch and seal any filling into large pockets to create exquisite, homemade ravioli. The 6 inch wide roller is designed to accommodate and compliment pasta sheets produced by the Pasta Roller (sold separately). The special filling scoop spreads filling into corners of the easy hopper for even distribution. Comes with a 1-year warranty and is dishwasher safe.

Here, are the type of questions we usually get.
