Today, I graduated from my very trusty GE hand/stand mixer to a BEAUTIFUL Imperial Grey 5 Quart KitchenAid Artisan! I got it on eBay, refurb, for $139.00...OH JOY!!! What to make first?!?!
Congratulations!! I remember when I first got my Artisan. It was only a few months ago, and yes, I too felt like a kid on Christmas morning. I couldn't wait to use it. I even use it to stir my coffee...
I have a refurb. one from eBay too, such a great deal! Congrats on your bargain, and have fun playing with it!
enjoy with many blessed baking day ahead!!!
I cant wait to get a new mixer myself....I have one that I got several months ago...for a little over 100.00 but all the talk has gotten me wanting a kitchen aid!
Good for you! Not only is the KA great, but it lets you go do something else while it is mixing for you! You are definitely a kid with a new toy! Janice
The one I have now is enables me to walk away while it works..I cant remember the name of it I will check when I get to the shop...hubby is saying thinks it is a sunbeam or something...but it is on a stand with the tilting head and locking stand etc.
I love my KA stand mixer as well, I do love the fact that I can turn around to grab something behind me or from somwhere else and still leave the mixer mixing. IT'S GREAT!!
You know, that was one of my biggest reasons for getting the KA...I really loathed having to stop to add this and that, grab this...
congrats mochaboi!! i bought mine from ebay too and i only use it for icings!!! i use my small ones for mixing cake batter.
See, Diane, I was thinkin of going the other way...mixing my cakes in the KA and mixing my icings and frostings in my trusty GE...It handled things well..I have no complaints about the GE at all...poor thing, because I know I gave it a true test...from dough to cookies to cake to icings..LOL
well, since my bowl in the k.a. is soo much bigger, i can mix up much more icing in that than i could with my smaller ones.
Just had to check...mine is a sunbeam mixmaster, so far it is trusty but I want another one too.
