I'm planning on buying the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer KSM150PS for 200.00, and would like to know if any one has any reviews on it? I'm not up to date with the KA world!

Thanks in advance!
Happy Caking! icon_smile.gif

KA has a lifetime warranty. They send a new one and pay the return shipping on the "defective" one. Even something as simple as the plastic cover on the speed lever being cracked. They have replaced my "pro" model twice. I have never used the Artisan, but 200 bucks is a good price. I can tell you I do prefer the bowl that lifts up and down over the beater case that flips back. The ad ons (pasta machine, sausage maker,...) are a bit pricey.

I have had my KA (and used it) for 20+ years. It is fabulous and is the workhorse of my baking business.

actually i got mine 2 years ago on amazon.com for that same price with free shipping. now they are $239, so, yes that is a good price if it's new in the box and not a refurbished one and they are not zinging you for shipping icon_smile.gif

I just bought mine Saturday on amazon.com. It was $200 but it all depended on the color. The ones that amazon were selling (as opposed to others who list their stuff on amazon) were the ones for $200 and were your basic colors....white, black, red. I went with red. icon_biggrin.gif My sister has an Artisan and LOVES it.

Ive had my Artisan for 15 years now. I use it heavily and never had a problem with it. Infact I would love to buy a second one to make my cakes faster. You cant beat the quality of KitchenAide. I own their confection stove and their dishwasher as well. So I say go for it!

thanks, that's good to know that amazon still has their specials on the KA for $200. I need a back up so I will have to check their site a bit more.

I got mine about 2 years ago -- on Amazon, a discontinued color, for a little less than $200. It's absolutely spectacular. I'm just getting around to kneading bread with it, but so far, so good. It's great for cakes, buttercream, fondant, royal, etc.
By the way -- I also got a big paddle beater that scrapes the sides as it beats. It has rubbery wings on it. This, too, is great -- you hardly have to scrape the bowl down at all. Pricey, but I bought it at the same time I bought my mixer, and I figured that was so cheap I could get the beater.
I think KA's accessories are kind of expensive. I don't have any. But you never know .... icon_biggrin.gif

Jenny: You are only about 2 hours from the Kitchen Aid Experience/outlet in Greenville, Ohio. You should make a trip there!! What they have in the basement outlet varies - but sometimes you can find used bowls for $5!!

I got mine from Kohl's - with a 30% discount and a $40 rebate (and a $12 free magazine or rebate) mine was a bit less money. The knob did break after about 6 mos, but they sent a new one and paid for shipping of the old one back. That one had a couple issues so they sent another one very quickly - good customer service, for sure.

not sure about that lifetime warranty...i was given for free an old lift bowl version of the KA 5qt that was not working. when i called KA they asked for the serial # and said it was over 10 years old and if i would like i could purchase their shipping kit for $32 to send it to them to run a diagnostic to see what was wrong. then they would call me and let me know the problem and the cost to fix it and i could decide if i wanted to proceed. if not then it would be $25 for the test. haven't decided yet what i want to do. a backup mixer would certainly come in handy icon_rolleyes.gif

I have two KA's, my old trusty gal from years back and the new anniversary model with the glass bowl that I got free with points. Neither one of them have or had a lifetime warranty. My new one is 1 yr warranty and my old one came with only a 1 yr warranty.

I think thats great you've not had any problems with replacement. Good for you! thumbs_up.gif
I Have a couple friends on another site that haven't been as lucky.
