    Mix Smarter not Harder

    I was excited to get this mixer. I knew it would open my mind to more baking and new recipes. It was shipped with all the proper pieces and securely packeged in styrofoam. I decided to make homemade mango pies and the dough came out nice and fluffy with an even consistency. I combined all ingredients using each setting. The lowest setting was powerful enough to creme my shortening, sugar and egg mixture. Because this mixer is so heavy, I expected it to make a loud humming noise but it didn't. It wasn't loud at all. It was so easy to tilt the head and then remove and replace the attachments. I didn't have to fight with the bowl to rmove it or to put it back in place. Use of this mixer made everything easier. Not to dim the light on the capabilities of this mixer, but its appearance, sleek, shiny look is an added bonus.

    I bought a yellow KitchenAid mixer in 1997. Last month I cleaned it up and gave it to my oldest daughter, still going strong. I purchased a new Blue colored Artisan, the next level up in power. Not to much has changed in the construction. I can use the attachments for the front with it that I already have. The beaters seem to be made with a different type of coating- thinner and harder, and they may last just fine. I am, however, disappointed in the way the beaters attach to the neck. The old machine snapped them in and held them very solidly- now the connection is not sized as precisely and the beaters have play/wiggle room, and so shift back and forth as they're mixing. Not a huge degree, but sloppy. It seems it would enable wearing. We'll see. I love it anyway. Maybe you can't expect an item made in 2016 to be as well made as one from 1997.

    Great mixer. Looks good and works great. Only had it a short time but no operational issues as of yet. As a note - the bowl that came with ours had a residue on the inside of it that we weren't aware of. We did wash the bowl before its first use however once it got going you could see the grey residue coming off in the cookie dough. Needless to say the batch of cookies was ruined. After looking online we saw that this had happened to many people. We ending up scrubbing it with a vinegar solution and it eventually came off and haven't had an issue since. So if it's your first time using it I would scrub it with some vinegar and soap til you can't see the residue anymore. It wasn't really a deal breaker for us and look forward to using this mixer for a long time.

    I was having trouble mixing up my recipes. Especially the stiffer cookie batters & dips with cream cheese. Just to hard on my hands & wrists to stir enough for combining all the ingredients. Mixing is fun again, love it. I got the Artisan series 5 quart in blue willow. The only criticism I have is not with the mixer itself, it's beautiful & works perfect. The problem is the Pouring Shield that came with it. I'm so glad I didn't pay extra for it. If it doesn't come with your mixer, don't spend the money. I thought it would be a helpful attachment but it's not. It's useless and annoying. Mine pops off continuously during the mixing process, gets in the way & no amount of adjusting will keep it on.It's a great idea, just doesn't work.

    Simply The BEST

    I'm a machinist by trade, so I know manufactured quality when I see it. THIS MACHINE HAS IT! It has unbelievable quality built into it. It's a lifetime piece of equipment. All manufactured from powder coated metal, with a planetary gear system on the head, along with a power takeoff on the front, much like a farm tractor. This thing is the "John Deere" of kitchen mixers. It's no wonder why these things are so popular. They have an all but limitless amount of tasks they can accomplish. Don't waste your time with cheaper kitchen mixers that don't have the power, are a pain to clean, and burn out in a year of normal use. Buy this model and you will have it for life. Then your kids will be able to use it until they die off. This thing is that well made.

    Great addition to a kitchen

    I got this for my girlfriend for xmas. We had talked about getting one because we both really like to cook. It's such a great addition to our gadgets. We have still just only scratched the surface of possibilities for this thing but making bread, pizza dough, and other things has been easy and fun. Not to mention it looks gorgeous. I think we'll enjoy using this for years and years but I would think it's only necessary for hardcore cooking enthusiasts. I can't imagine using it to mix brownie batter from a betty crocker box, just seems like a waste. Also, and I'm sure bestbuy won't be happy about this, there are much better prices on these at other websites. I got it from here because I was getting a lot of things to get 0% financing on the credit card

    Out of the box, the KitchenAid Metallic Chrome Artisan Stand Mixer is beautiful. I've now used it to make cookies of many types and with the slicer and dicer attachment several main dishes. It works beautifully and I'm in love with it. I'm fortunate that, although I've a small kitchen, I've a work table that I keep this appliance on all the time. Therefore, no heavy lifting. If I needed to put it away after every use it would be annoying because it is a solid heavy mixer. It's become something I'm using almost every day.

    Almost Perfect

    I have a Kitchen Aid Mixer in the 4 1/2 quart, with non-tilting head and really wanted one with a tilting head. This has the 5 quart bowl and love the bigger size, love the tilt head. The 3 attachments are smaller then on my 4 1/2 quart mixer. So when I mix some things - not all - I find the attachements do not mix together everything on the sides and I have to scrap them with a spatula. Not a huge deal as now the head tilt's back and makes that process easier. Overall - very sturdy,, looks beautiful and handles long mixes of about 10 -15 minutes with ease.

    The mixer is fantastic. I grew up using one and have wanted one of my own forever. Caught it on sale during the Valentine's Day weekend and finally pulled the trigger. It works just like my mom's, and feels just as sturdy and well made. My only complaints are minor nitpicks. I wish the power cord wasn't black. With any light, pastel colors it seems off-putting. Also, the clear plastic splash guard is terrible and doesn't work for anything more than mixing flour at the first speed. Just don't be an idiot when mixing and turn it up all the way when the bowl is full of powdered sugar.

    This is my 2nd Kitchenaid mixer. My first was a hand me down from my MIL that was probably made in the 1960's. It finally died, and I just had to have another one. After researching the models available, I decided on the Artisan. It had the same screw in bowl, lift up head that I was used to and have always found so easy to use. Like my old KA, this new Artisan works great! It is plenty powerful for what I use it for and it looks so beautiful on my kitchen counter. Best Buy had the best price and I've always been happy with their service, plus they offer extended warranties that I usually take advantage of.

    The KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer has been in my family from my great grand mother, my own mother, and my present family has one. I use the Artisan mixer at least once a week; baking, mashed potatoes, you name it. The rock solid construction says it all. The Kitchen Aid mixer has such a rich history of reliable well made mixers that it always comes to mind when thinking about a mixer. Its just the best; performance, looks, reliability, you cannot got wrong.

    When our old kitchenaid stand mixer that my wife got at a garage sale when she was a teenager finally mixed its last batch of cookie dough, there was no question about what we would replace it with. This mixer works just as well as our "vintage" one, though the accessories like the bowl and whisk look nicer, with a heftier handle on the bowl. Love that the old accessories still fit with the new mixer. And my wife is in love with the color!

    This is our 2nd KitchenAid Artisan mixer. We still have the 1st (9 years) but it needs a part for repair and we didn't want to wait for it and be with out this awesome kitchen machine! It makes light work of everything you can think of when using a mixer; baking, cooking, scrambling, etc. It is very powerful, very sturdy and well made. If you use a mixer frequently you may even want to purchase an extra mixing bowl for convenience. I would buy this again without hesitation.

    The mixer works beautifully, and looks great. The bowl locks in place snugly and has a good heft to it, (but not too heavy). The mixers lock snugly onto the shaft and release easily (but not too easily). The box arrived well packed and everything in good shape. My only complaint is that the plastic guard fits on very precariously. It doesn't clip on or even stay on very well. In fact, it is kind of warped so that you have to push it in place and hold it there to stay....

    Picked up the mixer to make my traditional cookies. Typically used my bare hands to mix everything but as age collects I need more assistance. While the mixer did do its job of mixing, the bowl was too small for my needs and had to return it. Was quite sad as it was a good looking/performing machine.

    Solid stand mixer

    I've wanted a stand mixer for a couple of years now and finally got this one. So far i'm very happy with the purchase, cuts the time of using a hand mixer considerably. Good quality product and it looks good too. The only real downside to this is its kinda heavy and bulky when finding a space to store it. But thats expected with a durable, reliable product as this one.

    It's a KitchenAid mixer, that speaks for itself. Awesome! Great power, ability to accessorize, looks great sitting there waiting to work. As for Best Buy, the mixer arrived on time and in great shape. The packaging was above adequate and the transaction easy. No regrets with this purchase. Also, the shade of red is VERY attractive.

    We got this mixer to replace a much older (passed down from my parents---maybe 1980s?) Kitchenaid mixer that finally died. The new one has been great. It's everything we loved about the old one but nicer and newer. The finish (we got Imperial Grey) is beautiful. The only minor complaint is that the level for the speed switch is a little sticky, but honestly that's better than it being too loose.

    Bought this for my wife. I wish we had more room in our kitchen to store it but it does look pretty impressive on the counter space we found. Bought the classic "chrome metallic"... so it looks pretty good. As far as function, it does everything you hope it would. I can't say this is a "must have"... but if you have a cook (or want to be cook) in the kitchen, they will love it!

    My wife has had and used her KitchenAid mixer at least once a week for the last 20 years and still going strong. She tells me she'll use nothing else. This one is for my daughters wedding shower gift. It's a beautiful mixer, loves the color and I'm sure she'll get the same results as my wife did from this high quality machine.
