Fun, Functional KitchenAid Artisan 5-qt. Stand Mixer Review

This KitchenAid tilt-head 5-quart stand mixer is from KitchenAid’s Artisan Series catering to those who want their small appliances to complement their kitchen design.

An artisan design says you have a unique sense of style, enjoy making a statement while having discriminating tastes.

If you are looking to upgrade an existing stand mixer or are looking for an awesome gift for the baker in your household, then this artisan KitchenAid Model KSM155GBRI mixer has a lot to offer. This may just be the one “appliance” gift that extraordinary someone will enjoy getting on a special day.

Not only does it come in nine (9) stunning color options but it runs quieter than other KitchenAid stand mixer models and has a smaller footprint taking less premium kitchen counter or kitchen island space.

In this review we will cover all the facts and features for the Raspberry Ice artisan tilt-head mixer just because we love the richness in this color. We like the MICROWAVE SAFE glass bowl, too.

After all, in our opinion, why would you pay the price for an “artisan design” and then draw attention away from a unique color with a stainless steel bowl?

There are, however, other artisan mixer colors available (shown in order of color) such as Copper, Electric Blue, Azure Blue, Candy Apple Red, Frosted Pearl White, Plumberry, Sea Glass and Sugar Pearl Silver that share ALL the same features!
