Brand New in Box KitchenAid Artisan 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer model: #KSM150PSER.
If you’re looking to make the ultimate move from difficult hand mixers to standing mixers, the KitchenAid Artisan 5 Quart Stand Mixer is a high quality, sturdy option. If you have ever enjoyed time baking in the kitchen, you know KitchenAid well. As a brand, they are well known for creating some of the finest standing mixers that you can buy on the market; their products last for generations. Their Artisan line standing mixer is outstanding, creating a lovely and enjoyable cooking or baking experience.
The Artisan offers ten speed settings. With its 325 watt motor, it is a powerful standing option that can work through some of the toughest foods. It comes with a flat beater, dough hook, and wire whisk that are ready to complete any task that you offer the mixer with speed and efficiency. You no longer have to struggle with hand mixing bread dough or particularly thick cake batters.
The Artisan features a large feed shoot as well as a tilting head that allows you to add ingredients while finishing your cooking job. The tilting head will help prevent any flour or powder blow-back into your face. It also allows you to prepare a wide variety of foods while focusing on the other necessary cooking chores. With a standing mixer, you will be able to follow recipes much more accurately. How often have you been able to use the perfect tool for the job? A standing mixer will let you mix for the right amount of time with the right mixing hook or tool without ending up with a hand cramp. The Artisan takes the pain out of mixing.
While hardy and durable, the Artisan is definitely a weighty kitchen piece, which is common in a high quality standing mixer. The Artisan comes backed with KitchenAid’s superior warranty and customer service, taking some of the worry out of purchasing an expensive kitchen utensil. If something goes wrong with your Artisan mixer, a call to KitchenAid will help you troubleshoot or repair your unit.
When it comes to possible problems, some users have found that the paddle does not reach the bottom. However, the instructions that come with the mixer clearly indicate that there is a small screw in the unit. It allows you to adjust paddle height to match the bottom of the bowl. Some have found that the bowl may be a bit small for all uses, though this does not make it unusable. You also cannot bring the KitchenAid from room to room easily, though you will not ideally move it too far. As it is weighty, it is not a piece that you can take with you from kitchen to kitchen without some planning.
Despite these minor flaws, the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer is a great option for the budding cook in your home. It will withstand some of the worst trials that any cook can give it and will last for years. The Artisan comes backed with KitchenAid’s famous warranty and customer service, making it a clear winner in the standing mixer market.
My children seem to think that I am a pastry chef. While I am good at baking, it can be very hard to make everything that they want with the wrong mixer. I learned this the hard way. It only took a few negative experiences with my children crying because I was not able to mix the ingredients correctly to get the right cookie taste for me to throw in the towel. I really did not think about the fact that the mixer I had was going to make a large impact on what I was preparing. Then I had the new KitchenAid's 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer as my cake mixer and I was able to really see the difference. I will never use another mixer again. My children even love the color and they cannot wait for me to make something when I get it out.

If you are thinking about getting one of these then you should continue reading. You will then have a better idea of the pros and cons related to the mixer. It will make it much easier for you to decide if you would like to own one or not.
As far as cons go, I have found that one of the largest drawbacks of this mixer is that it is really large. Therefore, there is really no way for you to store it when it is not in use. Rather, it is going to sit out on the counter and it can be very difficult to work around if you do not have a lot of counter space.
One more con for me is the fact that the mixer does not come with all of the attachments that you need if you are planning on doing a lot of different things with it. You will only end up spending money on other attachments if you want them.
Now for the benefits of this mixer, you are definitely going to have a very sturdy machine that is going to hold up and stand the test of time. While this could be a negative, it is also one of the major positives of this mixer. Individuals are going to see that it is very easy to mix and whip anything that you are trying to make. It is very easy to create even complex things when you are using this mixer. Those that have children will love this mixer for this reason.
Those that love to bake and cook will see that this mixer is great because the beaters are going to touch each and every aspect of the mixing bowl while it is working. You will never have to worry about your ingredients not being mixed well again. There are five rubber feet on the bottom of the mixer so you can also relax, knowing that it is going to be securely in place while you are using it. You can focus on your ingredients only and the recipes in front of you rather than worrying about it moving on you.
