Decorative yet Practical
Well-made, easy to use and looks gorgeous! So many colors to choose from ... but "Ice" coordinates very well with our kitchen back-splash. We love it!

great mixer
Finally, a big enough motor to take care of all the hard jobs we use these mixers for. If you riding the fence on buying a newer mixer, or maybe your first one, take advantage of this good deal. You will not be disappointed.

Love my 5 qt mixer in Cobalt Blue! ??
I wasn’t sure if the ad for 45% off mixers and appliances was true, but finally found out it was and couldn’t be happier with my purchase! I’ve ALWAYS wanted cobalt blue, and I made the purchase just in time to make my friend’s wedding cake!

Pleased new owner
I have been wanting a Kitchenaid stand mixer for years, but the timing never seemed right. This year, I bought one for myself for Christmas and am very happy that I did. I have used it to make cookies and pie crust. It worked great for both. I have been making pie crust for years, but I never got the water blended in properly. The Kitchenaid was a big help in improving my crust. I look forward to more baking adventures with my mixer.

Does a great job!
Sur la Table did an excellent job in getting the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer to me before the holidays! KitchenAid mixers are the best! The mixer will take the stress out of my wife's arm - she was using a hand mixer and it was putting stress on her hand. The mixer does a great job!

I have had a Kitchen Aid Mixer for the last 27 years and love it. I was given the 6 quart mixer that the head doesn’t lift but it is just too large for me and the mixer paddle never scrapped the bottom of the bowl. I prefer the Artisan and the color selection is great!

I have been using my Mom's old Sunbeam mixer from 25 years ago, and it was time for me to get a mixer I wanted. I have a gray and white kitchen and think the buttercup yellow I ordered will look amazing on my counter. It will get a lot of use, as well as adding a pop of color in our kitchen! I can't wait to make my first cake or batch of cookies!!

Audrey S on Jul 15, 2019
I've wanted this mixer for a long time now. The funny thing is I can't make up my mind what color to get it in. It's between the Empire Red, black or one of the grey shades. Any factors someone should consider when choosing a color?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Decide whether you want it blend in, not be obvious, pop, or complement your kitchen, it it's going to sit out on the counter. The artisan comes in a plethora of colors other than red, black or gray. Also, look at the candy apple red as it's gorgeous, at least my friends and I think so. The pro line mixer is amazing, (I have one and it's my favorite) something to think about.
What is the difference between the 6500 Series Stand Mixer and the Artisan Stand Mixer? There is a $200 difference and I am wondering why I would want to splurge on the 6500 Series versus the standard Artisan one?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2015
KitchenAid® Artisan Stand Mixer, 5 qt.
KitchenAid® Artisan Stand Mixer, 5 qt.
KitchenAid® 6500 Series Stand Mixer, 6 qt.
KitchenAid® 6500 Series Stand Mixer, 6 qt.
BEST ANSWER: Great question, it depends greatly on the jobs that you are going to ask the machine to do. If you are making double batches of cookies, large amounts of bread would want to consider the larger 6500. It has a bigger bowl and a more powerful motor. The 6500 also has the lift/lower feature for the bowl versus the tilting head on the Artisan. Hope that helps. Either way, you will own your KitchenAid for the rest of your life.
Where do I find the icecream attachment for this mixer ?

does it run on UK wattage volts?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would not i would purchase a uk one - I did the opposite and it did not do the job satisfactorily
Can this mixer use all of the attachments that Kitchen Aid offers?
Nanlyn A on Jul 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The hub is the same for all KA mixers.
Should I buy a larger mixer? What would the advantages be of a larger one?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've used the artisan, the 575 6 qt, and the pro 1.3 hp, and I definitely prefer the pro line. It's quieter, faster and doesn't heat up or bog down when making a decent amount of dough. it also has more planetary points making it more efficient when whipping. I have both the 575 and 1.3, which I use depending upon what I'm going to make.
Can this mixer make bread dough?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely with the dough hook. The machine should be locked at all times when mixing. No problems mixing 4+ cups of flour.
Does anyone know if the KA 5 qt. stand white paddle beater been discontinued? no seems to carry it anymore; only the side swipe. I am hoping KA has remade it to not chip before re entering it into the market. How ever, I still need to have one even though it is the 5th time as previously one have scrapped paint off the bottom, which many people complain about. I use my mixer at least once a week and make bread and the side swipe does a fine job with cake but not bread (before changing to dough hook). All the cooking stores have discontinued this item for a reason.
Janet P on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you're scraping paint, you need to adjust the mixer. Refer to your manual or just do an Internet search.
Any attachments chop nuts?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, not really. You'd want to use a food processor for a task like that. The KitchenAid does have a grinder attachment which you could use to perhaps make an almond flour, let's say but if you're just looking to chop up some walnuts or something, a small food processor will do the trick.
Which color looks like stainless steel?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Silver Metallic looks most like stainless steel.
Will the 4.5 quart bowl from the old tilt head mixer fit in this 5 quart mixer?
A shopper on Dec 17, 2016
Is the 5-qt Artisan too big for single recipes of cookies and cakes?
Marcia R on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, I use it all the time for single recipes and actually don't know what I did before i had it just using a hand mixer. It is actually the right size for any single cookie, cake, quick bread. I would probably not make more than a double recipe in it.
What does the black violet color look like? Is it super purple looking? Or is it more black with a tint of purple? Thanks!
Cara R on Feb 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is purple for sure but a nice dark purple. I personally like it and have really enjoyed it.
A shopper on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: White beater is meant for basic cake mixes and basic mixing. The silver beater that has many prongs and looks like a standard risk is meant for whisking. Like making meringue out of egg whites. The white one can also be purchased with a rubber edge that helps scrape the sides of the bowl like a spatula. It's great.
It looks like the metal on the end of the new whip is different from the metal of my old whip. My old whip is shiney. What had happened?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea. My KitchenAid Artisan mixture is the first one I've ever owned.
