You know, everyone raves about the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer. I’ve had mine for a few years. I was surprised one year by my parents who got it for me for Christmas. I was SO excited. At the time, I was living at home. So I tucked it away until I was on my own. At first I only used it once a year for our traditional Christmas baking. I didn’t really have much use otherwise. In the last year I have used this thing more than anything.
I LOVE IT!!!
How on earth did I ever make it the whole year without busting it out? Granted, those years I probably wasn’t cooking and baking as often as I do now. That’s how I got away with it. But now. Now that I am almost always in the kitchen, the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer is a must have. It’s a favorite.
- 325-watt mixer with 10 speeds; 5-quart stainless steel bowl
- Tilt-back head for easy access to mixture
- 1 piece pouring shield with large chute for adding ingredients
- Includes flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip
- Measures 14 by 8-2/3 inches by 14 inches; 1-year warranty
The Artisan mixer’s strong 325-watt motor delivers the power to handle the heaviest mixtures, and mix large batches easily. The 5-quart polished stainless steel bowl with ergonomic handle is big enough to handle large batches of heavy mixtures. Its ergonomically designed handle is contoured to fit the hand and makes lifting the bowl more comfortable. Unique Mixing Action: The beater spins clockwise as the shaft spins counter clockwise; moving the beater to 67 different points around the bowl. This unique mixing action creates a thorough blend of ingredients and eliminates the need to rotate the bowl. Multiple Speeds: 10 speeds allow the user to select the right speed for the mixing job; from very high to very slow stir. It’s easy to select the precise speed needed for a perfect mix. Versatile Accessories: The flat beater, dough hook, and the professional wire whip add to the versatility of the mixer. The flat beater is the ideal accessory for mixing normal to heavy batters. From cake mixes to firm cookie dough, the flat beater mixes quickly and thoroughly. The dough hook mixes and kneads yeast dough, saving both time and the effort of hand-kneading. The wire whip incorporates the maximum amount of air in whipped mixtures for fluffier whipped cream and angel food cakes.
All attachments are solidly constructed, and attach easily to the stand mixer. Easy Clean Up: The pouring shield fits around the top of the bowl and prevents ingredient splash-out. The chute makes it convenient and easy to add ingredients. The tilt-back mixer head allows for easy access to bowl and beaters. A lock lever holds the mixer head securely in place and the bowl fastens tightly to the base. Optional Attachments: Optional attachments (sold separately) complete the package to make cooking a pleasure. From citrus juicer to sausage stuffer, KitchenAid stand mixers can handle just about any job in the kitchen.
** I was going to have a recipe for you, along with my MF & MH featuring the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer, however… it’s raining. Rain = terrible lighting for photos! Hopefully I can show you tomorrow!
