What is better KitchenAid Artisan or Professional? Finding out which KitchenAid Mixer that is the best for you is a matter of considering your needs and wants, but also your budget. You want something that is nice to look at, has enough capacity to make your food and a powerful motor to knead a dough. KitchenAid has two bestsellers when it comes to these stand mixers, and that is the KitchenAid professional 600 and the KitchenAid Artisan. The high-end mixer is the pro 600, while the Artisan is a mixer for those on a budget. Following is a quick overview of these two popular kitchen machines, so you can decide for your self which one is the best.
What is better KitchenAid Artisan or Professional? The KitchenAid 600: The 6 quart KitchenAid professional 600 is a strong machine with its 575 watts engine and 10-speed gear system. It will churn trough dough and mashed potatoes without any trouble. It is also a heavy machine weighing in at 25 lbs so you better have room for it on your kitchen top. Included with it comes a dough hook, a batter, and a whisper. This makes it a ready to use the machine for a range of things, but if you feel this is not enough there are tools that can be attached to its multipurpose head, these tools can be bought separately and are not included. For instance, you can attach a meat grinder or even an orange juice press to it for additional benefits.
The design of the machine feature as all-metal casing made out of stainless-steel, it is seamless to make cleaning easier and is also easy on the eyes so that it will fit in nicely on your counter-top. Among other things, the pro 600 is essentially a commercial grade machine that people have come to rely on. The head of the machine is made of a rigid design so that you can not shift the head back if you want to take out the bowl underneath. This is because of its seamless design features and will make it more durable and easier to clean.
The stand mixer also has electronics to ensure a constant speed when subjected to a load, it also has a nice shut-off/turn on the feature and a slow start program that will prevent your ingredients from overspilling in the kitchen. The price of the Kitchenaid professional 600 is around 350-500$ for a new machine, but you can find machines that have been refurbished for a cheaper price. They usually go for around 250$. If you want only the best, then this is definitely the best KitchenAid mixer.
What is better KitchenAid Artisan or Professional? The KitchenAid Artisan: This stylish yet sturdy mixer is bound to set a smile on your face when you first see it. It fits in nicely on the kitchen-counter and comes complete with a paddle, whisks and dough hook for all your kneading and whispering needs. It has the capacity to make two sandwich sized loaves of bread at a time, mashed potatoes, and cookie dough easily. Just add your ingredients in the stainless-steel bowl and sit back and relax as it does its job. The size of the bowl is about 5 quarts, and the design features a tilt-back head feature that allows easy access to it when needed.
The KitchenAid Artisan comes with a variable speed setting with 10 alternatives so no matter what you are making you can always have the right amount of torque or speed provided by the powerful 325 Watt motor. The multipurpose head design allows for easy replacement of accessories so you can change between a wide range of tools. These accessories are sold separately, but you can use some interesting things with it to give it whole new abilities. For example, you can even make it into a meat-grinder for making sausages, or make it squeeze refreshingly fresh orange juice for breakfast.
The main disadvantages it has over the 600 mixers is that it has a less powerful motor and have less capacity in its bowl. This may cause it to start straining a little while kneading big pieces of dough. Even though it's lighter than the KitchenAid 600 mixer, it is still heavy enough to be regarded as a permanent machine on the kitchen bench and you have to find a square foot of dedicated space for it. But the designers had this in mind when they built the machine and it will definitely look good wherever you put it.
Since it is the "little brother" of the KitchenAid 600 series, you will get the Artisan mixer for a lower price than the 600 series. A refurbished edition will cost you around 150$ and new ones will net you around 250$ depending on the store you choose to buy it from. Be sure to take a look at online dealers before making this decision, we recommend online websites over brick and mortar businesses any day, as the prices generally are lower and many offer free shipping.
What is better KitchenAid Artisan or Professional? Just like the KitchenAid 600, the Artisan also comes with a 1-year hassle-free warranty that can come in handy if anything happens to the machine that is not caused by the abuse of the owner.
