Thanks for all of your help. Since i do not sell my cakes (I have cerebral palsy) so my hand coordination is not too good. . Is the Artisian Ok for one cake mix? I usually just do small cakes or pies for my family. I am not sure which to purchase cause I do love the bigger bowls of the professional
The Artisan is more than big enough for one mix. I have for instance often done a double batch of icing in mine. If you have to move your mixer around yourself you may want to get the Artisan as it is lighter than the Pro, still heavy and solid but the Pro by comparison weighs a ton.

Can you go to a local store like Linens and Things to compare the Artisan and the Professional? Neither require much hand coordination but the tilt head on the Artisan is heavier (especially with dough on the beaters) and harder to use in my humble opinion. It really is a matter of personal preference though. I love my Pro 600!
