Mix, whip and knead...KitchenAid's Artisan Stand Mixer does it all, from the fluffiest egg whites to the stoutest bread dough. Ten speeds cover every need from gentle stirring to high-speed whipping. The KitchenAid planetary mixing action thoroughly blends ingredients all the way to the edges without ever rotating the 5 quart bowl. Polished stainless steel bowl is big enough to handle large recipes and the wide-open design makes it easy to add ingredients. Clear two-piece pouring shield fits around the top of the bowl and helps prevent ingredient splash-out. Ergonomically designed handle is contoured to fit the hand and makes lifting the bowl more comfortable. Complete with a range of accessories, it's a must-have for any home baker.
