KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan 5-QT. Stand Mixer Review

Performance

When it comes to stand mixers nothing beats KitchenAid. Everything you mix is very smooth and consistent. Whereas on cheaper stand mixers the attachments stay stationary and doesn’t cover every part of the bowl the attachments on KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan move around the bowl to reach every space and increase efficiency.

KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan is equipped with 325 watt motor which is not the most powerful in KitchenAid model range (for example KitchenAid 6 Qt. Professional 600 Series stand mixer has 575 watt motor) but it’s powerful enough for the bowl capacity. It doesn’t have any issues kneading bread or any other hard doughs.

Quality
