KitchenAid is excited to introduce the Artisan Mini – a new and innovative addition to the KitchenAid Stand Mixer Family! This is perfect for apartment dwellers like myself where kitchen space is at a premium. The NEW Artisan Mini Stand Mixer is 20% smaller and 25% lighter, making it the ideal culinary tool for smaller spaces and kitchens! And, this mini has the same power as their other tilt-head stand mixers, so even though this unit is smaller, it is still as powerful!
Though mini in size, the NEW Mini Stand Mixer can make up to 5 dozen cookies in it’s 3.5 quart stainless steel bowl. The Artisan Mini Stand Mixer also features 10 mixing speeds and comes with a coated flat beater, dough hook and 6-wire whip. Phew, those 5 dozen cookies will tide me over while I prepare dinner! Although,, to get in another food group, we may just make whipped cream to top off the cookies and eat that!
You can prepare a huge range of recipes from guacamole (good-bye mortar and pestle!) to cupcakes, to pulled pork! I am not sure I could stop myself from serving guacamole at every dinner, it is one of my favorite foods!
The only way to initiate this KitchenAid Artisan Mini in my house was to make one of my mom’s top recipes. We always grew up with homemade cake and frosting, never store bought, and we loved the extra frosting that mom saved for us in our own little cup when the process was over. My brother and I are in our 50’s and we still fight over that frosting. We could only video tape the process once, because otherwise there would be too much frosting in the house, and I would eat it all! You can see how one gets gentle reminders throughout the process: make sure you secure the stainless steel bowl before starting and shut the motor completely when you want to pull up the mixer blades!
I love being able to recreate my mom’s recipes for my son! He is also my inspiration for using my new KiitchenAid to create healthier food options in the house, otherwise it would just be frosting all the time!
With so many different attachments to add-on, you can make everything from fresh pasta to burgers, veggie noodles and more. My son can’t wait for fresh zucchini to be in season to make zucchini noodles. His last attempt, without this device, was not pretty! The farmer’s market is literally four blocks away, and across the street from our local Best Buy, so we can purchase our new attachment, and fresh vegetables, at the same time to start making healthy meals with zucchini spaghetti!
It’s 20% smaller but, powerful enough to stir wet and dry ingredients together, knead bread dough or whip cream. I need bread dough, and I love whipped cream!
There’s many attachments available for purchase to enhance your KitchenAid: a spiralizer, a pasta maker, and a food grinder ( I can finally make my mom’s chicken liver pate!). There is a food processor and a juicer! I may never leave the kitchen because there is even a homemade pasta making attachment:
Yes, we love all pasta, whether it is made from wheat, or vegetables!
