I have wanted a KitchenAid stand mixer for many, many years, but held off on buying one due to high price relative to the little use I thought would have for the machine as well as confusion on the product that would be best for me (Artisan vs Classic). Well, a few weeks ago I was on Overstock and saw that they were listing a refurbished Artisan for about $130 less than a brand new mixer. I did my homework (online and in retail stores) to check prices and models and zeroed in on the Artisan as being the right model for me. Having recently completed project work for a major small appliance company, I understood the quality checks that a product must go through before being resold as “refurbished” (it still carries a brand name after all and a company doesn’t sell refurbished products unless they work!!) so I had no hesitation in buying a KitchenAid stand Mixer {KitchenAid RRK150WH White 5-quart Artisan Stand Mixer (Refurbished)} from Overstock. The mixer comes with 1 stainless steel 5qt bowl and 3 attachments (kneading hook, whip attachment and paddle). Because so many baking recipes call for mixing wet and dry ingredients separately, I bought a 2nd stainless bowl so I don’t have to transfer ingredients into another bowl. I also elected to buy the plastic splatter shield which is a great help in the kitchen when mixing at high speeds! I rate this 5 stars. I wholeheartedly recommend this appliance and I am just sorry it took me so many years to purchase one… But I feel like I am the smartest person on the block because nobody knows that I got it for a steal! SOLID construction and timeless great looks. The mixer does not disappoint! Anyone who cooks or bakes knows that this should be a standard piece of equipment required in a well equipped kitchen. Great looking, easy to use and indeed it is an aid in the kitchen!
