Let’s compare the KitchenAid Classic to the KitchenAid Artisen [youtube=eN1mDHcIsKg][/youtube]
I cannot tell you how much I love my KitchenAid. Although I mainly use it to make some pretty awesome banana bread, I have used it to make whipped cream, cakes, and muffins. This holiday season I am planning on using it for desserts for the several work holiday parties I will be attending. You will not regret purchasing this.
As a warning, the last time this was up for sale on Woot it took almost a month to ship after charging credit cards with no updates from Woot other than an agent posting on the item’s discussion page. The day they said all of the orders were to be canceled from lack of stock and refunded they finally shipped out. Maybe their supplier is better now but be warned you may not get it by Christmas.
Never used a 1 beater mixer before, only a 2 beater. Is the 1 beater better, or otherwise comparable? Any experience and opinions on that? Also wondering if a smaller bowl is available and/or necessary. I have a mixer with a large bowl and a small bowl to use depending on what I’m making.
I have this model and it kicks butt! I got as a gift in early 2010 and have used the daylights out of it. This is a decent price for it. Not the best I’ve ever seen, but good.
Cheaper than Kohls with the 30% off when you account for tax if you pay it. Pretty normal price with less color options it seems. Still well worth it though
I have had my Kitchenaid for 20 years. My mom still has hers at like 35 years. These are great machines. I use mine 2-3 times a week. I do bread, whipped cream, cakes, cookies, and even mashed potatoes. This was the best wedding present I received. Love love love mine.
I have a KitchenAid Classic Plus Stand Mixer which I just love and I use all the time. The Artisan is the next step up and has a stronger motor and a larger handled bowl. It also comes with the pouring shield. The big box stores get $199 for the Classic model which is 2 steps down from this and the colors are very limited if they carry anything other than white. This is an excellent buy. Guys-- if your wife or SO enjoys cooking or baking they will be thrilled with this for Xmas, Hanukkah or “just because”. This is a workhorse that will last forever. American made and great warranty as well. You can’t go wrong with a KitchenAid!
Can anyone sort out the different models, sizes, prices, available for this brand? I seem to get confused by it.
Seen 5 qt and 6 qt models. Are those the only 2.
Is Woot considered an authorized vendor? If so there is a $50 mail in rebate available through their website. It says not valid through online auction sites but this isn’t an auction so I’m thinking its good?
KitchenAid makes 4.5, 5, 6, 7 and 8 quart mixers.
The 5-quart “Artisan” comes in several packages (this basic one, one with a scraper paddle, one with a glass bowl instead of metal, and a pricey brushed steel version). It’s a great size for most home cooks - especially the ones who like to make their own bread but don’t want to knead the dough by hand, and anyone who wants to whip up 3 or 7 dozen cookies.
One of the nice included items here is the pour shield (which doesn’t come with the 4.5 qt. model). The larger (6-qt and above) Kitchen Aids have wider bowls, making it easier to add ingredients without bumping into the head. But the smaller volume bowls are narrower, and having this pour shield compensates.
To the person who asked if 1-paddle mixers are an advantage over 2-paddles (I assume you mean hand mixers?) the answer, as always, is “it depends”. Here, go watch this America’s Test Kitchen comparison between this very Artisan stand mixer and a KitchenAid hand mixer: - YouTube
BTW, the attachments you can buy - the meat grinder, ice cream maker, etc. - really turn this thing into so much more than just a glorified mixer. If you get one, you should really look into some of them.
Went for it. Been wanting one of these for years, put it on our wedding registry but no one purchased it (stupid family), so Merry Christmas to us.
Kitchenaids are far superior to anything else the home cook has available to them. Unless you’re going industrial with a Hobart, this is the ticket. You don’t need a smaller bowl but extra bowls are always handy if you’re making a lot of stuff and don’t feel like washing out the bowl every ten minutes.
Does this qualify for the $50 rebate?
Does the bowl come with this? It’s the only thing NOT listed on the spec sheet and seems like a pretty important part.
Or is it part of the “mixing stand”? (Which seems counter-intuitive, since they come apart and one of them can go into the dishwasher).
Love Woot and they’ve never done me wrong, but this is a lot of money to discover that it was my fault for not reading the “fine print”.
I would think so. The fine print doesn’t say amazon is excluded. And the model on the rebate is the same that is offered here “KSM150”
I am not 100% sure though.
edit: In for 1. let’s hope the rebate works.
