Â by Juanis Mixer arrived damaged/Not so happy w/ the color
A neighbor of mine let me borrow her mixer and I was in love. I'm not a kitchen person but my experience won me over, plus I couldn't skip a great deal. It literally felt like the order arrived at the click of the order button lol However to my surprise the mixer had a few scratches, a dent, and the mixing bowl rim was damaged.
I ordered the buttercup color and was hoping for more of a darker yellow/mustard color. Something more like the yellow at the bottom of the mug in the picture I've attached. The color is nice if you are looking for a regular yellow. I'd like to see the Majestic yellow next to the buttercup. It would be nice to check them out at the store but unfortunately these specific colors are only available online. Going to play it safe and will exchanging for the metallic chrome that is available at one a nearby store.

I've always wanted a Kitchenaid tilt head stand mixer in red. Finally got one, and I Absolutely love it! I recommend investing in an extra bowl and beater.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by PrincessPink Down-sizing from Pro to Artisan
I told my youngest son, the future pastry chef, that I would give him my Pro line KitchenAid mixer sometime after high school graduation. When I saw him packing it up to take with him, I knew it was time to search for an Artisan line mixer. Finally, in October, a great sale came along that also had an offer for a free glass bowl. I bought a pink mixer which I have always wanted. Since I had my Pro one since 1999, I knew the privilege of "big" and never worried about bread dough coming up, over the dough hook. In my Artisan, I have made cakes, cookies, rolls, breads, etc. The bread making was frustrated by the bowl being too narrow at the bottom, making the dough constantly come up above the flat of the dough hook during the kneading. When my glass bowl arrived, I made a double batch of whole wheat rolls which makes as much dough as the bread recipe. This time, using the glass bowl, the dough didn't come up over the flat ledge of the dough hook the entire kneading time. So glad the glass bowl is wider and deeper! Another concern I have had since the mixer arrived is a grinding sound that it makes when the motor is running on low speeds...since I only have the Pro line for comparison, not sure if this is normal and will ever go away. So, in all, I love the Artisan now! Absolutely love the lift head and easy bowl removal! I even put yellow daisy removable decals on my mixer...everyone who sees it is drawn to it!
