Comment:
I bought the newest stand mixer 6 quart glass bowl about 6 months ago but it was hard for me to handle (a bit of arthritis) so the retailer graciously swapped it out for the 5 quart Artisan which is perfect for me. The first thing I made was Easter Bread. I used the dough hook and it came out great. With the tilt head I like the easy removal of hooks and how easy it is to clean underneath the head. I also like the way the bowl locks in the bottom with a slight turn of hand. The bowl is not heavy so its easy to move off the mixer and handle even if batter is in it. I like this mixer better then the newest 6 quart glass bowl I sent back to the retailer. The head did not tilt back which made cleaning harder underneath after you removed the hook. Also on the newer model you have to hold the (very heavy) glass bowl press to back and lock and then anchor it over a bolt on each side. I had a hard time lining it up. I was so happy to send it back and get this Artisan 5 quart bowl. I also called Kitchenaide and they said this model sells the most even over the 5 qt glass bowl. I was skeptical when I bought this Artisian 5 quart. I thought it would be hard to handle as the new model but I was so surprised and I can't say enough of how well it operates,handles and cleanup is a breeze. I highly recommend this particular stand mixxer for older and younger folks.

Comment:
Frequent baker - yearly win prizes for baking for our county fair. I am not a fan of this mixer - a part broke off the on/off lever and I was told by customer service that I must purchase a repair evaluation kit and have the entire arm replaced to fix this, and pay for shipping the mixer to and from the repair center. Also, I am left handed, and it is awkward to add ingredients, turn the mixer on and off, the bowl is always positioned awkwardly, and I always seem to get dough on my hands when adding ingredients or when removing the beaters! When you add ingredients, they often rest on top of the beaters and you need to make a special effort to make sure they are incorporated. Again, maybe this is because I am left handed.... Never had a problem with my old Sunbeam Mixmaster!

Comment:
All our attachments lost their metallic finish in the dishwasher. When we complained we were pointed to fine print stating not to wash in dishwasher...who makes heavy duty equipment for cooking that cannot survive dishwasher? Now we have nothing but heavily oxidized aluminum attachments that cannot be used due to metal oxide loss from surface whenever touched. Now we have to pay $100 to replace attachments...dont get attachments with metal plate finish...get the white ones. Better yet...just buy a different brand that makes attachments of more durable finish that cannot come off.
