Hello Pickles - I would purchase the 6qt for $220! Definitely a good price.

What size is the heavy duty??

I have both the po and artisan and like both. If you do alot of cakes at one time of same flavor I would go with pro 6qt

Bigger is always better in this case, especially if you do many cakes. (Especially at that price icon_eek.gif ).

Enjoy your new mixer when you finally do purchase! icon_biggrin.gif

I have the Artisan with the 5 qt bowl. I can do a triple batch of my bc with this one and it JUST fits. I kind of wish that I had the 6 qt bowl. But I know you can buy those separately. That's going on the Christmas list ! HA! But I like the power on mine, in fact, i've never had it on high yet. It fits my needs for everything I've done with it so far. Don't know what the other two are like, but that's my 2 cents on the Artisan.

Go for the 6qt Pro. My first one was the Heavy Duty but I quickly outgrew it and moved up to the Pro.

If you can afford it, I would definatly go with the 6 quart. As someone else said, bigger is better icon_smile.gif
