KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer has a strong 325-watt motor that 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. A unique mixing action creates a thorough blend of ingredients and eliminates the need to rotate the bowl. The beater spins clockwise as the shaft spins counter clockwise; moving the beater to 67 different points around the bowl. 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. 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. The mixing bowl and attachments are very easy to clean.
The mixer comes with a range of versatile accessories like the flat beater, dough hook, and the professional wire whip. The flat beater is the ideal accessory for mixing normal to heavy batters. 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.
Some users faced the quality control problems with the mixer where it failed and they had to get a replacement mixer or buy a different brand. This is an expensive mixer.
With a 325-watt motor and 10 mixing speeds, making delicious treats is easier with the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-qt. Stand Mixer. It comes in many beautiful colors to match any décor in your kitchen. It is proudly made in USA.
