They have so many versions of kitchenaid mixers it hard to decide on the accessories. I wanted a cover, a spout cover and an steel bowl. The bowl fits perfectly on my Artisian mixer.
This mixer is like a premium hand mixer in some ways. Mainly because it includes a mixing stand and bowl. But there are better quality hand mixers on the market. This is definitely a basic hand mixer. The unit easily detaches from the base/bowl. The next obvious step would be a nice dedicated stand mixer. But if you are just replacing a hand mixer, but want the option of occasionally being able to use a stand mixer, this is great. This is a great item for people that may need to use a mixer once a month or so. For a heavy cooking person, I would shop around for a dedicated hand mixer and a dedicated stand mixer.
