Why get a Kitchenaid Artisan?  Because it’s the best stand mixer overall and worth the investment.

Watch this review of the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer:

The KitchenAid Mixers are innovative and come in lots of cool colors.  Besides how great they are for mixing your cake batters and frostings for your cakes, there are optional attachments for making pasta, bread dough or tortillas.  The new Kitchenaids now come with glass bowls so now you can see more of your mixture while its being mixed.

The Kitchenaid Artisan is powerful and is my favorite.  It has a 5 qt. mixing bowl with a handle and Splash guard with a feed tube, and it comes in 25 beautiful colors!  People who have bought it say they think the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer is the best all around stand mixer.  It’s great for mixing your frosting, icings, cake batters, egg whites, whipped cream and all of your other mixing needs.  It comes with all the beaters you’ll ever need; the flat beater, whisk beater, and dough hook.

People have said, and I agree, that the 10 speeds are easy to control and with the new splash guard, you never have to worry about splashing batter on you or a cloud of powdered sugar hitting you in the face.  The feed tube makes it easy to add ingredients while beating your mixture too, so it’s really great!

If the cost is too much for you, go to eBay and see what you can find.  You don’t have to get the Artisan…the KitchenAid Classic is just as good.  The only difference is that it is not quite as powerful and the mixing bowls are 4.5 qt instead of the 5 qt.  Neither of these things would make much difference to the average baker.  They both do great for cakes and frostings, whipped cream and egg whites, and of course bread and pizza doughs.

If you’d like to find more reviews, just head over to Amazon.com or Consumer Reports.org.  They both have great reviews where you can get a better idea of what it is you’re shopping for.
