I've had my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer for over seven years now, and I wouldn't bake with out it! It makes whipping up soufflés a snap and pie crusts and doughs a cinch!
KitchenAid 5-qt. Artisan Stand Mixer, Pink When you purchase this limited-edition Pink Artisan mixer, KitchenAid will donate $50 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation as part of their Cook for the Cure® initiative. Established in 1982, the Foundation is dedicated to eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease through research, education, screening and treatment programs around the world. The 5-qt. Artisan Series Stand Mixer is KitchenAid's latest accomplishment. In comparison to their previous 4.5-qt., this one is larger in capacity and combines a 325-watt motor with a heavy duty transmission that supplies constant power even when mixing heavy bread dough. Convenient, the polished stainless steel bowl is sized to hold large batches and recipes, and with its wide open design, accommodates the beater from the tilt-back head once it's lowered into the bowl. The handle on the bowl is ergonomically designed, contoured to fit the hand, facilitating lifting and pouring. Like the other models, this one, too, features KitchenAid's unique mixing action - the beater moves clockwise while the shaft moves counterclockwise, enabling the beater to reach every area as it mixes. It features 10 speeds from a very high to a very low stir. Included with your new stand mixer is a clear, two-piece pouring shield that fits around the top of the bowl, preventing splashes. A large chute lets you add ingredients along the way. Accessories include a Wire Whip, Flat Beater and Dough Hook for versatility. The rugged, durable, all-metal construction promises many years of dependability, quiet operation, and cooking and baking bliss.
