Is this an Artisan series?
It appears to be the “Artisan Design” model based on the capacity and glass bowl.
These are on sale for MUCH cheaper locally… store caller “Meijer” and also found on Amazon for cheaper.
Well maybe not.
Heres the same model on Amazon
The Artisan model has a 325 watt motor, this one shows 300 watts. I believe this is the Classic model, possibly with some Artisan options thrown in.
Yea, it’s hard to tell the difference theres so many models out there. What impact will the lower wattage have? I like the glass bowl and attachments this one has.
It really doesn’t make much difference at all, unless you’re working batch after large batch of very stiff dough or batter, in which case go for one of the Pro models (or even a commercial Hobart if you’ve got the $$). I have both a Classic Deluxe and an old K5SS, I think 300 and 325 watts respectively, and they’re both in constant use (ex chef). There’s nothing I’ve thrown at them so far that they haven’t been able to handle.
BTW, the KitchenAid eBay store is having a 1-day sale on refurb Artisans today for $170, with free shipping. It doesn’t have the glass bowl upgrade, but if that’s not a deal breaker, there it is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kitchenaid-Stand-Mixer-tilt-5-QT-Ksm150ps-All-Metal-Artisan-Tilt-Choose-Color/131628135915?afsrc=1&rmvSB=true
[MOD: Not KitchenAid. Just an authorized reseller like Woot. Also, different model.]
Thanks. I thought it was KA’s channel. (I did note it was a different model, though: the Artisan.)
I have a red Artisan. I could not live without it. I gave my mom’s old KitchenAid to my sister. She made cookies yesterday and tried her hand mixer, a mess! She pulled the KitchenAid out- no more problems. I keep mine out, I use it so much. I love blue but have my heart set on the yellow. I cannot wait to get a new one waiting for the red one to go out, it never will! I have the food processor attachment, next the spiral and ice cream maker. Buy KitchenAid!
