KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer
Do we really need an artisan KitchenAid Stand Mixer?
That questions has been brought up several times now. Actually, we ask ourselves this question every time we see a stand alone mixer in a department store.
Our kitchen has been a work in progress for quite some time now. The cupboards were stuck in limbo land, we were trying to brighten the place up by painting them a lighter color. Halfway through the project the holidays came and left the kitchen in a state of some kind of three tone mix. The one thing that was accomplished was adding more counter space. It was desperately needed! For as much extra counter space that we added, we are still a little reluctant to add more appliances.
With 30+ different color options a KitchenAid Artisan Mixer is just too cool not to have.
The standard coffee pot, toaster, and microwave have claimed their spots along with a water boiler. With space being at a premium, we really don’t want to add anything too big and bulky. That said, there are some things that you really don’t want to live without, right? And this mixer is one of those items!
