As you’ve probably read in my other reviews, I love to bake. While I’ve always used a hand mixer, I’ve wanted a stand mixer for as long as I can remember. When I saw KitchenAid’s Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer on QVC’s In the Kitchen With David, I knew it would be perfect.
After it was ordered, I waited on pins and needles, for it to come, checking the porch everyday just to make sure no packages arrived while I was out. When it finally landed on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to test it out.
The first thing I noticed was it’s fabulous appearance. I chose the Caviar finish which turned out to be black with a bit of sparkle. Even my girl’s were oohing and aahing over it.
The KitchenAid Artisan Mixer is so easy to operate with 10 speed settings at the flip of a switch, mixing up my batter and dough faster than I could have even imagined with my hand mixer.
It includes a flat beater, a dough hook and a wire whip. All three can easily be attached to the base with a simple twist.
The flat beater can be used to make everything from, cake batter and frostings, to meat loaf and mashed potatoes.
The wire whip will whip up your egg whites or sponge cake in no time.
As a frequent maker of bagels, my hands totally appreciate the dough hook which eliminates the need for hand kneading your yeast dough.
It also comes with a pouring shield with a large chute for adding ingredients and preventing splashes, which makes cleanup a breeze.
While the mixer is heavy, it is also stable and durable, sure not to bounce around on your counter. There are quite a number of optional attachments to go with the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer including:
- Pasta Sheet Roller and Cutter Set
- Citrus Juicer
- Grain Mill
- Food Grinder
- Ice Cream Maker
- Slicer and Shredder
- Ravioli Maker
- Fruit and Vegetable Strainer
- and Sausage Stuffer.
The instruction manual not only contains operating instructions but recipes as well. I love this mixer and have no doubt that it will be able to handle all of my baking and cooking needs. With all of it’s options I was thrilled to see that the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer is available on QVC and I’m excited to watch In The Kitchen With David to learn more about everything it can do.
