KitchenAid Mixer Review - Artisan Mini, Artisan, & Pro 600 Mixers

[Music]

imagine cooking styles there's going to

be a KitchenAid mixer smashing hey it

chef Austin here with everything

kitchens we're going to be looking at

our top three KitchenAid mixer models to

find the right one for you we're gonna

look at artisan mini the artisan and the

professional 600 the artisan mini is

going to be best for people who aren't

going to be using the mixer a whole lot

or for just a smaller household usually

one to two people artisan mini has a

small footprint so it's gonna be great

for small spaces

this model is gonna have the familiar

tilt head design that you're going to be

used to with KitchenAid and it's only

gonna stand a little over 12 inches tall

that's gonna be great for tiny houses RV

living and apartment under the hood is

going to be a 250 watt DC motor included

with the artisan mini is a brushed

stainless steel bowl that's three and a

half quarts we also have the standard

trio of dough hook flat beater and wire

whip you're gonna notice with the

artisan mini that you don't have the

pouring shield and there's gonna be no

handle on the mixer the artisan mini did

a great job in whipping in egg whites we

had a single egg white and it whipped it

into a meringue with no problems at all

we also made five dozen of my great aunt

Rose's Chicago style chocolate chip

cookies five dozen is the maximum

capacity for this mixer and it did a

great job

evenly mixing everything we also test

the dough hook making a pizza dough had

a little bit of headshakes

but that's pretty standard on your tail

head style mixers the mini is going to

be able to handle any KitchenAid

attachment that's gonna fit in the power

hub we tested the exact low slice food

processor the meat grinder and the

juicer as we thought they were going to

need the most power to run effectively

the meat grinder and the exacto slice

food processor did great we did notice a

couple issues with the juicer since the

artisan mini is so short the included

cuts would not fit under the juicer but

a normal sized glass would fit under the

juicer

also while we were juicing we did notice

that the KitchenAid mini was tilting

forward as we were pushing down fruits

we do recommend keeping your hand on the

back of the mixer as you're pushing down

fruits and vegetables

keep the mixer sit when people think of

KitchenAid they probably think of the

iconic KitchenAid Artisan mixer the

artisan is going to be great for

families of three to five people and for

people making holiday cookies for all

their friends again the artisan is your

traditional tilt head style mixer it's

about 14 inches tall and weighs a hefty

27 pounds under the hood we've got a 325

watt motor which is great for powering

through those sticky bread hoods the

artisan comes with a 5 quart polished

stainless steel mixing bowl with a

handle 5 quarts is large enough to make

nine dozen cookies or four and a half

loaves of bread also included is a

pouring shield and the standard trio

wire whisk dough hook and flat via the

artisan performed well in all of our

chefs from whipping egg whites the

mixing cookie dough the artisan did a

great job it evenly mixed and

incorporated all the ingredients evenly

throughout the entire mixing bowl we did

have a little bit of head shake when we

were mixing in chunkier ingredients into

a cookie dough and making our pizza

dough but that is typical with dough

headstock the KitchenAid Artisan is the

king of color options there are over 40

colors to choose from keep in mind that

these mixers were shot in a

professionally lit studio so the

lighting in your home may be different

and affect how the color looks if you

need to make triple batches of mashed

potatoes feed crowds of people

poorni through pounds of sticky bread

dough you can do it all with the

kitchenaid professional 600 with its

larger capacity and stronger motor the

professional 600 is the behemoth it is

16 and 1/2 inches tall and weighs a

whopping 31 pounds that's like lifting

up a small table so you might want to

leave this one on your counter if you're

gonna leave it on the counter be sure to

measure these are notorious for not

fitting underneath your cabinets in

smaller houses and old from under the

hood you're gonna find a 575 watt motor

with all steel gears that's going to be

enough power to knead through eight

loads of even the stickiest whole-wheat

you're going to notice this is not a

tilt head design this is a bulbous

design there's a lever over here that is

going

lift and lower the bowl instead of

tilting the head back and forth this

makes it easier to add ingredients to

your recipes the pro 600 comes with a

six quart stainless steel polish mixing

bowl with a handle that's enough space

to make thirteen dozen cookies in Mass

for holiday videos also included is

going to be the burnished metal beater

blade dough hook and wire whip a quick

note about the burnish attachments they

are not dishwasher safe so please hand

wash on them you can make bigger batches

of bread thanks to the power needs

spiral dough hook included with the

professional 600 you can make up to

eight loaves of even the stickiest bread

dough with no shake thanks to the

stability of the bullwhip design we did

notice some issues with smaller batches

specifically in our egg white tests it

wasn't able to whip up a small amount of

egg whites but KitchenAid does offer a

smaller mixing bowl and smaller width

for the professional 600 series - salt
