KitchenAid 5KSM175PMA Artisan 175 Stand Mixer
The KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer 175 in stunning Macha Green is a focal point for any kitchen. But, of course, it is also much more than a beautiful accessory. Regard it as your willing commis chef. That’s because it will beat, whisk, mix and batter every ingredient you ever throw at it (or, rather, put in). And, it will keep on doing this for years to come, since all KitchenAid mixers are built to last decades.
In fact, you can be pretty sure that you will have your strong, reassuring KitchenAid metal body, together with its dishwasher-friendly stainless attachments and bowls, around for as long as you need them, whenever you need them. This particular artisan stand mixer includes a roomy 4.8 litre stainless steel bowl, as well as a smaller 3.0 litre version. This means you can use both bowls at once rather than having to wash the same bowl after every use. Not only that, but the tilt-head on the mixer also makes it easier to add any ingredients you like to the bowl without making a mess or losing a chunk of them.
The 300-watt, efficient motor direct drive means your premium artisan stand mixer produces a quiet hum, rather than a noisy blast. This also results in a consistent speed and an energy efficient appliance you can be proud of. Oh, and all this comes with an impressive five-year guarantee.
What else is in the box?
In the box for your KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer you will also find a wire whisk for adding air to your sponge and other mixtures, together with a dough hook for coming up with the perfect loaf or two (or even pizza or pasta). Other extras include a flat beater to help with heavier and sticker mixtures, such as mashed potatoes and frostings. The flex edge beater makes sure you get every last drop of the ingredients in the bowl, and a pouring shield ensures your mixture goes where it should and not over the counter top or floor. The latter is also great for making sure ingredients stay in the bowl when you’re adding them, especially flour.
And the best bit? There is no frustrating fiddling around trying to get the attachments to fit. All can easily be clicked into the body of your KitchenAid stand mixer in the one, single attachment hub. Meanwhile, for increasingly ambitious chefs you can also find additional attachments that can be purchased separately to allow you to grind meat, make ice cream, produce freshly squeezed citrus juice and all manner of wonderful foods your family and friends will love.
You will find that mixing any ingredients is achieved quicker and smoother thanks to the famous KitchenAid special planetary action mixing technique. Invented by Herbert Johnston in 1919, it involves the beater rotating in one direction and the whisk in the other, constantly pushing ingredients into the centre of the bowl. So successful is the method that it is still the number one mixing aid in the world today. It is especially loved by bakers, thanks to the fact it leads to a lighter, more aerated mix.
