Why you should buy a KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer

The KitchenAid 125 and 156 Artisan 4.8L Stand Mixers provide performance and practicality in equal measure. Expect plenty of power for taking on the likes of mega cake mixes and dough too thanks to the selection of supplied mixing accessories and a 300W motor.

You'll need to pay extra for mincers, spiralisers and whatnot, but included in the box – alongside a sizeable, 4.8-litre capacity bowl, with a pouring shield that helps keep mess levels to a minimum – are a wire whisk, a flat beater and a dough hook that’ll tame anything you’ve got in mind, bread-wise.

Once you’re underway the KitchenAid 125 and 156 have a dry working capacity that can handle 1kg of flour, a whopping 2.7kg of cake mix or mash 3.2kg of, er, potatoes – because we know these stand mixers are just as popular with spud lovers as they are with cake-heads. Ahem. 

Liquids-wise, the KitchenAid Artisan can work with 1-litre of something like whipped cream if that’s your thing.

What we also like about the KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer is its footprint, in that it’s big enough for people not to miss it in your kitchen, but doesn’t get in the way on your worktop. Just right, we reckon…
