KitchenAid Artisan Giveaway… and a short mixer story

The fun continues!  There’s still time to enter this very cool Stella & Dot giveaway, but I have another one for you! 

Though I don’t use my stand mixer every day, it’s one of those appliances that I am so grateful to have.  Certain tasks are just infinitely easier with its help.  As a funny aside, I will tell you a short story about how I acquired a mint green KitchenAid…  

I was feeling a little down in the dumps after yet another failed in vitro attempt before finally becoming pregnant with my second son (after going through the same emotional process with my older son–for anyone struggling, have hope). For some time, I was regretting letting my grandmother’s old KitchenAid go to auction…that’s another story for another day!  I decided a shiny new model that matched the tile floor, which was sort of a rustic verdigris, would be just the thing to cheer me up.  My husband was ever-so understanding when I mentioned the lofty charge for this spur-of-the-moment purchase, and I have loved that mixer for so many reasons ever since.

Interestingly, I just read that a stand mixer is a poor choice to put on a wedding registry.  The thought was that people who are about to get married are likely not in their “forever” house and don’t know which of the many fabulous color choices may match–or not–their future kitchen.  I, for one, will say that I have moved since my purchase, and my mint green mixer doesn’t match my current kitchen, but I love it more now than I did then.  It even survived a thunderous crash when it careened off my kitchen counter while whipping on high speed.  (Note to self: Do not turn your head for a nanosecond when the mixer is whirling away at top speed.)  Anyway, the wood floor suffered a small dent, but the mixer was, shockingly,  no worse for the wear.  

So if you’ve been longing for a high-capacity, quality stand mixer but haven’t taken the leap, now is your chance.  I’ve joined with a wonderful group of bloggers to celebrate summer and help one lucky reader become the proud owner of a 5-quart KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer.  Good luck!

    What a great appliance to own to help me with all the baking I love to do. It’s the top of the line! It would be a privilege to own this mixer. So much better than a hand held mixer I’ve been using for many, many years!

  3. AvatarLisa Konieczke

    I would love to have a stand mixer, I love baking and cooking with my girls and my hand mixer is on its last beater.

    Thanks for your story; I’ve never owned a stand mixer but have had a bowl or two skid off the counter on me.

    I’ve always wanted a Kitchenaid mixer. We do a lot of cooking, baking, etc. and this would help so much. Much faster, easier and cleaner than a hand mixer!

  6. AvatarSarah Phillips

    I want a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer so that I can finally make homemade marshmallows! I’ve always wanted a stand mixer anyways. I love to bake, so this would make things a lot easier for me in the kitchen!

    While I am an avid baker, and would love to have this KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in my kitchen, I would give it away to a friend of mine. My friend showed up on my doorstep in an electric wheelchair that had belonged to her brother who passed on. She had been using for herself, but felt that The Lord Jesus wanted my husband to have it. He is disabled and is supposed to be wheelchair bound to heel his foot. So whenever my friend told me this, I cried tears of happiness. Her kindness has given my husband so much independence again. I told my husband that if we should be blessed enough to win this, we would give it to the lovely human being, who so selflessly gave of herself. <3

    Every woman needs this mixer! It’s nice and practical and makes cooking and baking easy and clean!

  10. AvatarNatalie

    I would love a stand mixer because my hand mixer is not powerful enough and I hate holding the bowl.

  11. AvatarMichelle C

    I love to bake but have never had a stand mixer… this has been on my wish list for quite a while!

  12. AvatarJanice Kirk

    I never owned a kitchen aid and would love to win one. Thank you so much for your blog, you make cooking much more interesting. Your recipes are great, I enjoy reading your tips.

  13. AvatarTawny

    I actually want the stand mixer to give to my 90 yr. old mama. She has been using the same one since 1950 or ’49. A blade on a beater is broken and trying to get a new one was unsuccessful. She loves whipping up potatoes and other things in her mixer. This would make a fantastic present for her.

  14. AvatarHolly Thomas

    I have wanted a Kitchen Aid for a very long time, I am the only one in my family without one!

  15. AvatarLinda Tupper

  16. AvatarKristi Kellberg

    I want to make some old fashioned oatmeal cookies which are difficult to mix with a hand held mixer. I love to bake and
    would use the mixer everyday to make new recipes.

  17. AvatarEdmond

  18. AvatarAnnmarie W.

    My daughter has become quite the baker…especially with cupcakes! And this would make working in our kitchen soooo much easier…for us both!

  19. AvatarMichelle Castagne

    I would love to have a Kichenaid mixer for my cooking needs. I love my grandmother’s 50 year old Kitchenaid hand mixer that slowing down in it’s old age and it’s time for a new one.

  20. Avatarashley k

    My sister loves to bake and this mixer has been on her wishlist for years now. I would gift it to her because it would totally make her year!

  21. Avatarpatricia caradonna

    I want a KitchenAid mixer to make baking and mixing easier. I have inexpensive hand mixers and they always break after a few months. I need a mixer for baking and cooking weekly.

  22. AvatarZubair Muhammad

    I would kike a artisan mixer because Im tired of kneading dough by hand and I heard the dough hook gets the job done, plus I’ve always had my eye on the artisan but I was never able to afford it.

  23. AvatarDebra Lawrence

    My current mixer is vintage 1974. Although it has served me well, it’s time for an upgrade! Need one with kneeding capability as I have arthritis in my hands and it is painful to kneed dough.
