Top notch mixer
I've had a KitchenAid stand mixer for 35 years [purchased new ones just to change the color] but they all still work! This one was purchased as a gift for my daughter as a wedding gift.

Love KitchenAid
I love my KitchenAid Artisan mixer. It has been reliable for the past dozen years. I just sent one to a niece as a wedding gift, hoping it lasts her a long time too.

Thanks for your excellent help with this order and having it sent to the store--this was very helpful and convenient for me since we were traveling around the time it shipped. This was a 16 year birthday gift for my daughter who has taken a big interest in baking and cooking. She LOVES her new Kitchenaide stand mixer!! Thanks!

The Kitchenaid mixer is a staple appliance for any kitchen
The 5 at mixer was a wedding gift. They love it and use is almost everyday. The newly weds have been able to go to Sur La Table and buy several other attachments.

Love it, but just short of perfection
It's quiet, powerful, sturdy and looks good. The only thing I wish I could do with it is small batches. Not sure if there's a glass bowl and paddles to go with it, though.

This is my second one. I gave my 37 year old to my daughter, it was still functioning perfectly. The new seems to function well so far too.

Love my KitchenAid mixer.
Love this mixer! If you take care of it and clean it after each use you will have it for years! I recommend the ceramic finishes over the metallic ones which seem susceptible to scratching. I have had my white one for over 30,years and we just bought my daughter the Red one which we were told is a tradition in England! Enjoy!

My current kitchen aid is 32 years old and still working, but it is making funny sounds. The first one was so good, so I chose to purchase another kitchen aid.
Dianne G on Nov 13, 2016
I chose this as a gift and I know the company has a great reputation
Laura H on Feb 13, 2017
We loved the finish and it was a professional mixer
Tanya B on Feb 5, 2017
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.
does it run on UK wattage volts?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You will probably need a voltage converter. I haven't seen too many products that work for both 110 and 220 volts at the same time.
Where do I find the icecream attachment for this mixer ?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2015
Can this mixer use all of the attachments that Kitchen Aid offers?
Nanlyn A on Jul 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have the pasta one and use it all the time. I am ordering the foid processor and the noodle extruder. No limitations as to what this mixer can do!!!
Should I buy a larger mixer? What would the advantages be of a larger one?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a 6 qt mixer and I find that it is too big to mix regular recipes properly, so I end up using a hand mixer instead most of the time. I'm thinking of downgrading to the smaller 5 qt mixer.
Can this mixer make bread dough?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes and great roll dough, as in cinnamon roll dough
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.
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.
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.
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?
