A staple appliance in many kitchens is the KitchenAid mixer. The KitchenAid countertop mixers artisan series comes in many different styles, colours, and sizes from which to choose.

A KitchenAid stand mixer can do everything from mixing cookie dough to kneading artisan bread. Not only does it mix and knead but you can also find additional attachments for use with your mixer. A meat grinding attachment can be added to grind meat. Pick up the ice cream attachment and make homemade ice cream with your mixer. There is even a pasta roller attachment that you can add to your stand mixer.How do you choose the right model?
All KitchenAid brand stand mixer series use the same mixing action, no matter which size you choose. Each KitchenAid mixer has the right amount of power for their bowl capacities.
- Type of mixer: KitchenAid stand mixers come in two different types for your kitchen: the tilt head or bowl lift. The tilt head makes it easy for you to access the beaters. You simply tilt back the head of the KitchenAid mixer and remove them. The head locks into place while you are mixing. This mixer is shorter and a good option if your upper kitchen cabinets hang low. The lift model is when the bowl sits on the arms of the mixer and is lowered and raised with a lever. The head of the KitchenAid mixer is stationary.
- Capacity: Do you cook food for a large family? Do you frequently make double or triple batches? Do you make homemade bread or food frequently? All of these questions should be considered when deciding what capacity you will need. If you don't cook frequently or have a smaller family, then a smaller-capacity KitchenAid Stand mixer might be the right choice for you. If you have a large family or bake bread frequently, you may want to select a larger-capacity mixer for your needs.
- colour: The KitchenAid brand offers their stand mixers in many different colours. You can get a colour to fit any decor. Black is one option, though KitchenAid offers mixers in an array of colours, including red, blue, pink, and purple.
- Space: KitchenAid stand mixers can be large, and you should measure the space in your kitchen before purchasing. The tilt head mixers are usually shorter than the lift type, which can make a difference in smaller spaces.
