I love to bake...a normal baking blitz entails pie dough, cookie dough, bread dough...I bake in volume because I have 3 teenagers. I've waited years to purchase a KitchenAid Stand Mixer & purchased the Artisan.
First I made my pie dough - 5.5 cups of flour - should have been a breeze for this unit. However, the head was bobbing up and down & wiggling from side to side. Perhaps too ambitious? So I followed the KitchenAid recipe for bread - 6 cups flour. I thought the unit was going to die - it was pushing the limit and straining. Cookie dough next, only 4 cups of flour - still the Artisan was moaning with effort. The unit is very good for somebody baking single batches of baking...but for bigger, batches, I think I need to exchange the unit and upgrade to the KitchenAid 6000 Lift Stand Mixer.
I believe in the product.

Overall a good investment. It is easy to clean, very quiet, and sits elegantly on our open concept kitchen counter. I suggest readers not buy the food slicer attachment. You should purchase the glass bowl as well and the special beater/scraper to give you more options when mixing two parts to a recipe.

Have had it about 8 months, use it frequently, no trouble with it at all and it makes baking an absolute breeze! I used to wish I was one of those mums who bakes great stuff with her kids, and now I am!
I have not used any additional accessories , so I cannot comment on those, but for the mixer itself and the components it comes with, its wonderful!
tip: go ahead and just put all the ingredients in your mixer, you dont need separate bowls or different steps! Just add the ingredients in the same order listed in the recipe (cream the butter and sugar before adding the rest) and your cakes and cookies will turn out great.

I have been wanting a KitchenAid Stand Mixer for a very long time. This machine is all it's hyped up to be. It's very durable and will last a lifetime and can be used for many things! You will not be disappointed if you invest in this mixer.

I bought this for my daughter as a Christmas present. It lasted 3 years. She called Kitchen Aid customer service...and or course.....it's not under warranty! She phoned a service centre and it was going to cost $45 to have a look and then probably another $150 for parts and labour.

I had thought I was buying a high end mixer that would last my daughter a lifetime! But then I guess we the consumer are learning over the past few years that the brands that we thought were high quality (high price) are no longer made to last. It seems that Kitchen Aid has resorted to the same tactics that have beguiled the entire commercial world, cheap components, glitzy exterior! Kitchen Aid is ruled by greed and maximum profits.

Kitchen Aid is no longer a quality product in my estimation. I will not buy my other kids this brand for when they set up their homes. If I have to replace it every 3-5 years....I will gage my buying practices accordingly for my personal consumption and the gifts that I buy!!!! KITCHEN AID.... you make junk!

I've had my eye on this stand mixer to accompany my KitchenAid food processor and finally decided to invest in it with the impending holiday season and baked goods that go along with it. I eat gluten-free and so I'm also constantly baking my own bread - having a stand mixer with a dough hook is fantastic.

My Experience:
In using the dough hook, I found that all ingredients were thoroughly mixed, and that my KitchenAid had no problems incorporating all the ingredients. The coating on the dough hook and flat mixer allows your dough to essentially fall off when you raise the mixer head.

I next adapted my infamous biscotti recipe to a gluten-free recipe and went ahead and prepped it in my KitchenAid. I used the flat blade to cream some butter, sugar, eggs, and spices, and then switched over to the dough hook to start incorporating the dry ingredients. The batter for these biscotti is heavy and thick, and I was concerned about how well the stand mixer would hold up. Evidently, it had no problems whatsoever. The biscotti turned out fantastic.

Notable Pros:
- Attachments are easily mounted and dismounted from the mixer yet held in place by an extremely secure, simple mechanism that is easy to clean.
- There is a diversity of attachments available for these mixers
- Extremely powerful motor delivers when it comes to heavy and thick batters or doughs.
- Sturdy build quality and no-fuss operation. Everything is simple and intuitive.
- Stainless steel bowl, and coated attachments are dishwasher safe in my experience (the whisk is not, and will oxidize - however this is easily reversed if you have stainless-steel cookware cleaner).

Notable Cons:
- The dust-shield is made out of plastic and thus when you pour dry ingredients in, a distinct static charge builds up that causes your dry ingredients to stick to the shield rather than fall in to the mixing bowl. It also promotes the dry ingredients sticking to the mixer head rather than incorporating.
- The wire whisk is not dishwasher safe requiring (just a tiny-bit) more cleanup effort.

TL;DR: An amazing product from KitchenAid with diverse attachments, lots of power, and no-fuss operation.

I couldn't be more thrilled with my new Artisan stand mixer. It does a superb job of mixing and all that it is designed to do. It is quieter than I expected too. After much deliberation,I ordered the 'Bayleaf' colour and am delighted with it; it is a beautiful,rich, jewel-like tone. It looks very attractive tucked into its own corner on the kitchen counter, and is a nice contrast to all the other stainless appliances. It's important that it looks good, as the machine really is too solid and heavy to be taking it in and out of a cupboard. The Amazon price was better than I could find anywhere locally, the colour selection was more complete, and I was able to apply for the $50. rebate too.
I should add that I was amazed at how quickly it was delivered. I ordered it on a Wednesday evening, and although I didn't pay for Express shipping, it was on my doorstep Friday at noon. I live in Ottawa and understand the package came from the Toronto area - so if you live in this area, no need for extra shipping charges.
If you are young, or have a young family, and do a lot of baking, don't wait as long as I did to invest in one of these gems!

I was very disappointed that this motor has already started to go :( and i have had it for less then a year - I never make large batches... 90% or my baking is soft cookies... so it should last much longer then that. The colours are awesome but a little more power and durability would be appreciated... i am thinking that next time I'll go for a stronger model but the reviews on that make it seem like a similar case.

I wasn't knowledgeable about KitchenAid mixers before purchasing this product so I posed a few questions in a cooking community and it was suggested that if I wasn't going to be using the mixer in a business setting, that I choose the Artisan model rather than the Professional.

I wish I had purchased this mixer decades ago because it's astonishing how well it performs, how easy it is to use, and how much more versatile it is than the hand mixers I have used all my life. I am exceedingly happy to have the mixer doing its job which frees up my hands to prepare other things, thereby speeding up the cooking or baking process.

I love the retro look of this model too, and the apple green colour is fabulous - it's truly a work of art.

I use this mostly for making bread. Oh OK, I ONLY use it for making bread! I made a cake once as well, it sure beats a hand mixer! (beats...!) For bread, I proof the yeast in the bowl, heat the butter and milk on the stove, toss it in with the flour, run it for 6 minutes, put the ball of dough somewhere to rise... almost no effort! Compared to the old way of mixing and kneading by hand, there is no contest! Forget the fancy bread machines, this is all you need. (knead... there's another joke!) Don't get a lessor model, believe me, the horsepower required for kneading bread is substantial. This thing bucks like a bronco at times but it has held up. It's quite heavy, you might want to reserve a spot on the counter to avoid lifting it. I put it into an appliance garage with a slide. Also has the ability to run choppers and grinders with a transmision output on the front, some things I may buy later.
