Product Capabilities

The KitchenAid Artisan Mixer is ergonomically designed to fit the needs of the buyer, making lifting and adjusting more comfortable. It is equipped with a 325-watt motor and 5-quart bowl, which means that no project will be too heavy or too large for it to handle.

The mixer’s unique design allows it to mix different ingredients unlike any other mixer. While the beater spins clockwise, the shaft spins counter-clockwise, moving the beater to an impressive 67 different points in the bowl. This unique design means that no matter what type of ingredients you’re using, you’ll be able to incorporate them into your mix evenly and precisely.

While most mixers only offer a few speeds, the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer offers a full ten speeds, making it easy to pinpoint just the right speed for your mixture.

Since the mixer is ergonomically designed, it is easy to set up and remove your mixture without a ton of hassle. The easy design also makes cleaning up afterward a breeze.

Even for cooks and chefs that I know that don’t bake alot and don’t use a mixer alot, they do like to take a break from always using their roasting pan or from constantly chopping with their chef’s knife.  It’s fun to break out the cake pans and get this mixer rocking!

And did I mention that it looks fantastic on your kitchen counter as well?

The Accessories

KitchenAid Mixer Attachments

The mixer comes equipped with a standard flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip. Each is carefully constructed to suit different types of projects. The lightweight but durable wire whip is ideal for whipped mixtures, allowing for the maximum amount of air to be added to the mix.

The flat beater is ideal for mixing a variety of both heavy and soft mixes, sauces, and creams. The dough hook both mixes and kneads dough, saving plenty of prep time and muscle pain.

The mixer’s optional attachments include a wide variety of options for cooks to choose from, such as sausage stuffers and citrus juicers. These attachments are sold separately, but can be found wherever the mixer is sold.

Customer Response

What Do Customers Say About the KitchenAid Artisan 5 Quart Stand Mixer?

Customers have been overwhelmingly positive in their reviews of the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer, with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars online. Customers love not only the mixer’s ability to turn out a great finished product, but the durability that comes with it. Everything from the mixer’s style to the easy clean up received raves from almost all of its reviewers.

Also impressive is the outstanding customer service that comes with the mixer. Customers that called with problems about their mixers reported that customer service was thorough and helpful in their response.


While most customers rave about the KitchenAid mixer, a few reported some minor setbacks. As with most mixers, it can be difficult to get the mixing bowl and mixer at the right height to prevent too much friction between the mixing bowl and the attachments. It might take a few adjustments in the beginning to get the height just right, but it’s easily done. There have also been a report or two or small mounts of oil leaking into the mixture, but has only been reported after long periods with no use.

I personally have never run into any problems at all with with mixer, and have been thrilled with it.  If I do I will certainly update my website with anything I run into.
