As I promised in an earlier post, here is my review of my new KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer, which I purchase for $289 on Amazon.com in Onyx Black.
The KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer is a wonderful appliance that can do nearly any kitchen task you can think of with the wide assortment of nifty attachments available for it. From mixing to making pasta and everything in between, this mixer is the perfect addition to any kitchen. I have used it to mix and knead bread dough and to make cookie dough so far, but I'll be using it for many more things in the coming weeks. This mixer is any cook's dream come true!
In addition to it's amazing variety of uses, the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer is sleek and stylish, so there's no need to try to shove it into a cabinet to hide it out of sight when guests come over. Since it comes in dozens of beautiful colors, from neutral white to bright red, you'll be sure to find one that complements your kitchen perfectly. The mixer is heavy at nearly 25 pounds, but all that bulk is neatly put together into a sleek, sturdily-built appliance. The paint doesn't chip off easily, and the mixer is easy to wipe off. The outlet where you attach some of the bigger attachments is cleverly hidden with a removable silver knob featuring the KitchenAid logo. The entire mixer has a beautiful design that is hard to explain in terms other than "absolutely beautiful." Just take a look at any picture of these mixers to see how KitchenAid has mastered the art of appliance design.
The mixer does its job much quicker than any hand mixer could ever do. Give it 30 seconds or so, and the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer can whip up the perfect cake batter or cookie dough. Allow it 10 minutes on speed 6 with the dough hook and you will have a nicely kneaded mound of dough for delicious American Sandwich Bread, ready for rising without the need to knead by hand.
The KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer's handy versatility, sleek design, and incredible speed all make it the best choice for anyone who wants to have an easier time making their favorite recipes, from pasta to pumpkin bread, without the work, mess, or hassle of manual labor. I highly recommend spending the $300-$400 to get this wonderful appliance, because it will pay for itself time and time again. This mixer will be a cherished possession for you and your entire family for years to come.
