KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer I must confess, I don't fully understand the appeal of a stand mixer. If you bake a lot of bread, then a stand mixer is your new best friend. The dough hook makes mixing and kneading an absolute breeze. In fact, it may be my husband's favorite kitchen tool.

But, if you're just mixing cookie dough, cake batter, or whipping up some real cream to put on your hot chocolate, then your hand held mixer (or even just a whisk) may be all you need. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I like mixing the cookie dough myself. And though the KitchenAid Mixer is easy to clean with its tilt-back head, splash guard, and easy to remove attachments, it just seems a lot easier to me to pop out the beaters on my hand held mixer and toss them in the sink.

But maybe you're really wanting a machine to do it for you. In that case, I'd recommend the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer. It really is a beautiful piece of machinery (which is good because you'll need to leave it out on your counter). It's powerful, easy to use, and it will last you a long, long time.

In addition to the dough hook and splash guard, the KitchenAid Mixer comes with a flat beater and a wire whip. There are also a whole slew of attachments that are sold separately- everything from a sausage stuffer, to ice-cream maker, to a food grinder.

The KitchenAid Artisan Mixer comes with a powerful 325 watt motor and a 1-year hassle free replacement warranty. It's made right here in the US of A, which is a selling point in my book (think of the resources saved by the fact that this product wasn't flown to you over an enormous ocean).

Compare this with Cuisinart's stand mixer.
