I waited a long time to finally get my Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer and now that I have it, I am enjoying it very much. I enjoy cooking and have always used a small hand mixer so its great to have a bigger powerful mixer to use. I also bought a mixer cookbook so I hope to use my mixer even more soon. I love the color (gloss cinnamon) and actually like having it sitting out on my counter to use when I need it. It is heavy but doesn't have a huge footprint so it is not in my way at all. I am going to get some of the attachments so it will be even more useful in my kitchen. If you are thinking of getting this mixer, do it with confidence, its a great mixer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda the baker I have two of these
I am a baker and my kitchenaid mixer makes my job so much easier. I had an older version that I have used over 10 years and when my husband and I separated I had to have one as I was lost without the one I let my husband have. I love the plastic guide for adding ingredients which my older version didn't have. The only complaint is that it is very heavy so I keep it on my counter so I don't have to lift it. I would definitely recommend it to those who bake. So nice to have your hands free while mixer is going. Cheesecake is a cinch. Just turn on mixer and let it go. Same with cookies and kneading bread. Love it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SeaSirenne The only flaw...
I LOVE THIS MIXER. I just want to be clear about that. The only flaw in the design is with the splatter shield because it does not stay on. Perhaps if KitchenAid were to put rubber over the 3 little pieces that are supposed to hold it on AND make those pieces a bit longer, it would stay on. I have spent the last 8 months refusing to make any baked goods for my family because my old mixer burned up last Christmas during baking season and I refused to get a replacement until I could get a KitchenAid. The red that I wanted was backordered so this took some time. I have made 3 different types of cookies and made-from-scratch cinnamon rolls and they ALL turned out so much better than any batches I have ever made with my old mixer!

This is perfect timing !! I used my new mixer for the first time last night making my famous chocolate three layer cake. What a NIGHTMARE!!! I do NOT want this mixer!! My dry ingredients went all OVER my kitchen and on ME, my floor, cabinets clean glassware--I want to return this mixer plus the extra bowl and beater and cover that I bought!! I literally cried...My cake batter ruined I cannot tell you how many washcloths I went through cleaning up cocoa powder mixed with flour baking soda and salt!! AND I DID have that worthless shield ON!!! Someone needs to phone me NOW!! 405-310-5164. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I grew up using my parents' kitchen aid stand mixer and loved it. As an adult who bakes a lot, buying one for myself seemed too luxurious and expensive. So I used lame hand mixers and baking took way more time than it should. Let me offer a word of advice to any young adult who bakes/cooks and doesn't own a Kitchen Aid stand mixer: buy one now and you'll use it for life! All the time I wasted mixing by hand was for the birds and my creations come out better with this mixer. I also was able to purchase my favorite color and though I have a tiny kitchen it owns counter space! Don't wait like I did, everyone deserves this excellent machine.

I got this for a wedding gift from my grandma who has had one for as long as I can remember. She told me it will make cooking and baking so much easier and she was glad to pass on the tradition. It has been the best thing to have in our kitchen! I can make cakes, cookies, and breads without having to stir or knead by hand! This saves not only so much time but it saves me a lot of pain and gives me delicious results everytime! I would highly recommend this to anyone whether you are just starting your own kitchen or if you have gone without for 40 years, it will change your life!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MV Love it!
I have used this a dozen times within the past week. I absolutely love it. The only issue(and it's not a big one) is the screws on it are a bit loose when pulled out of the box. I did plenty of research on stand mixers before buying this, and the one issue I kept seeing was that the loose screws caused issues if not tightened...like things breaking off type issues. Sure enough, when I put the Philips head screwdriver to it, they were very loose. I tightened them up and we'll see how long I have to go before they come loose again, or if they even come loose again. I assume they come loose just because of the vibration of the machine over time. Hopefully mine lasts as long as every other review I've read. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Made Great Even Better!
I had a kitchen aid mixer for about 20 years. It finally had issues and I decided it was time for a new one. Even though they look basically the same the new mixer has a bunch of little improvements that make it even better than the old one. The handle on the bowl is nice, the speed is better, and it seems lighter that my old one. The only drawback is that when I first start mixing sometimes the flour gets tossed out of the bowl, and the clear plastic cover doesn't seem to help very much. But looking forward to another 20 years with this new mixer! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
