Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer - A Real Workhorse...
In my family, the Kitchen Aid stand mixer is a rite-of-passage. Kitchen Aid has been selling these babies since 1919 and many generations of my family have gotten one for a wedding gift. It all started with my grandmother, who finally replaced her first Kitchen Aid mixer in the 80's, not because it broke, she just wanted a newer model.
My mom and all my aunts were given the mixers for their wedding and my grandma has carried on the tradition by giving them to all of us kids. My mom still owns the standing mixer that she was given on her wedding day - and she's been married for 36 years! I, of course, still have mine, and I can't wait to give them to my daughter's when they finally get married.
For years, the Kitchen Aid stand mixer has been the name in mixers for the kitchen. Today, they do much more than simply mix - if you buy a few attachments, they'll juice, chop, grate, stuff, and much more.
It may seem like quite an investment to pay $300 for a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, when you consider the fact that you can buy a hand mixer at WalMart for less than $20. I think they are well worth it though. First of all, are you still going to have that same hand mixer 40 years from now? Ask the Kitchen Aid can do much more than your standard hand mixer. Of all the gadgets that I have in my kitchen - and there are quite a few, this is THE one that I would never give up.
They also come in a wide variety of really cool colors. I was given a black one, but if I was going to buy it again, I'd definitely go with a different color!
Anyway, check them out. The KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer is the perfect addition to any kitchen!
