Excerpt: I've had my Artisan mixer for nearly 20 years! At only 250W, it has been an amazing workhorse mixing bread dough, cookie dough, meatball mixture, pasta dough and so much more. My husband joked about using the gift card from friends to get a backup mixer for when the workhorse decides to retire. He's so right! I now have the 7-quart mixer in my basket. Thank you Williams-Sonoma and KitchenAid!
