For all the cake bakers and cooks, KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer is one of the best kitchen stand mixer you must have. A 325-Watt Artisan Mixer with 10 different speeds available and a 5-quart stainless steel bowl. With such a beautiful kitchen equipment, anyone would fall in love for this incredible mixer for a whole bunch of great reasons.
What's in the box?
So the very first thing we would want to know before buying this great artisan stand mixer is what comes with it. This KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer comes in 16 x 16 x 11 inches dimension weighing about 22 pounds. It comes with a flat beater for making batter and meat loaf, a wire whip for mayonnaise and egg whites, and a dough hook for mixing and kneading yeast dough. Nevertheless, a 5-Quart stainless steel bowl with ergonomics handle which is big enough to handle large and heavy mixtures.
How does it look like?
From the above images, you can see it's a beautiful piece of equipment to be placed in your kitchen. There are over 20 colors available for this KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer which allows you to choose the ideal color to match with your kitchen’s theme and decorations. With such beautiful colors, you’ll not need to hide your mixer after every use. It can be placed there as part of your kitchen decorations.
Is it really good?
The beater and shaft of this mixer spins in different directions, one goes clockwise and the other goes anti-clockwise respectively. With this unique mixing action, it allows the beater to reach 67 different points around the bowl. This also creates a superb blend of ingredient and does not require you to rotate the bowl while you are using it.
With 10 different speed available, it allows you to select the right speed for the mixing job. It’s easy to select a precise speed needed for your perfect mix.
One important thing about the mixer is the maintenance. This KitchenAid Artisan Mixer is extremely easy to clean up. There’s a pouring shield fitting around the top of the bowl to prevent ingredients splash-out and the chute makes it very convenient and easy to add ingredients to the bowl.
Accessibility and security is also another concern. There will be a tilt-back mixer head that allows you to easily access the bowl and beater. Next, a lock lever that holds the mixer head so securely in place without the need of holding it firmly. Lastly, the 5-Quart stainless steel bowl fastens itself tightly to the base eliminating your worries on the bowl moving around.
You can even make Ice Cream for your kid!
