KitchenAid Artisan £332.10 ( £315 after TCB/Quidco) @ Debehams

Found 22nd May 2012
I mentioned this on one of today's thread but thought it was worthy of a post of its own.

Debenhams are currently selling their Kitchenaid Artisans at a discounted price of £369 (down from £419), but by using discount code CB27, you can bring the price down to £332.10.
My TCB has already tracked at £16.94 and Debenhams have always paid me

I realise that this isn't going to appeal to everyone but if you have been after one for a long time, as I have, then you'll know this is a very good price.

I've been tracking the Artisan on amazon and it's not dropped anywhere near this price before. It's currently at £409.

All colours are available and they've also got some of the attachments on sale too.

Hope it's of help to someone.

Give me 3 days for delivery and I'll tell you!

They are supposed to be fantastic. I've not met anyone who has regretted it. It's a huge amount of money, but I fully expect it to still be going long after I'm gone.
good price. I've got the kitchenaid k50 which comes with 2 bowls and bowl cover. also, it lifts up the bowl rather than tilting the head which is more convenient for me as I make a lot of cakes. Very good investment if you bake a lot.

There's always one...
Kitchenaid are renowned for makin high quality mixers with metal gearing inside, unlike European counterparts that are largely manufactured with plastic running gear and frequently break down. I have the artisan mixer and it's a fantastic bit of kit. Mine is primarily for bread making but I also make cakes etc too and compared to other mixers it is WAY more powerful. They are the best and last a very very long time!
Easily misunderstood if you know nothing about mixers
omg look at all the colours !! very tempted but was holding out for a kenwood 1000 watt chef, bit concerned that these only have a 300 watt motor !!!

HavOr just overdesigned and overpriced



It definitely seems overpriced yes (due no doubt to little competition in this area - plus the low sales numbers), but I wouldn't exactly say "over" designed. Why is reliability a bad thing?
looks nice, but i dont bake enough to warrant spending quite so much, be nice to see some alternatives for those who bake but less.
Fantastic price - well done OP

I got one of these on the very first Amazon black Friday week.
Not sure which model it is but I got it for 125 pounds. :-)
Hot!

Bought one for the wife for christmas for more than these. Kitchenaid are a bit like Apple, nearly impossible to get a discount on!

If you want one, but it now, it won't get cheaper I'm sure.

The boss loves hers and uses it loads. Throw all the ingredients straight in, and by the time youve got the cheese out of the fridge, the pizza dough is ready to stretch out. Not just for cakes!

Very expensive i'll grant you, plenty powerful too, but seemingly bomb-proof, as a 30 year investment, its pretty cheap, especially if its used a few times a week.

Ever tried to make a 12 inch fruit cake by hand? Just chuck it all in and turn it on!

Super, have heat!
Sprite, that would have been the KitchenAid "Classic" possibly. They look almost identical, but come in white or white.

Gutting that these are only $180 (£114) in the US outlet stores. 110 Volts though... so can't easily use it in the UK.
Urgh ... this deal is killing me. Want but don't need. Argh.
Amazing products

Is the price for the classic or the artisan ones?
I think they use this on America's Test Kitchen on PBS.

Unfortunately there is the worm gear assembly which is sacrificial in these Kitchenaid mixers, in my line of work we come across these being prone to wearing out which is porbably more to do with them being overloaded or over used in the more commercial environments. The problem is that they can be very hard to get hold of as Kitchenaid UK does not stock them, they come from a central European store which is fed from American stock, we have often been waiting for 6 weeks or more and in some cases the customer just replaces the mixer. The Amazon link seems to have stock currently but this is about 3 times the price of being from Kitchenaid, I even have one supplier that tries to charge over £100.00 for this part.

All being said though that people do seem to love the units for domestic use even though I could never justify the cost. I have voted hot as it is a good price compared to what they usually go for.
I don't think you can justify the cost when you can get a more powerful mixer for less by Kenwood.

But if you're buying it on looks alone, I guess only a KitchenAid fits the bill.
An absolute bargain, got mine back in December for my birthday and it's been used several times a week since. My absolute favourite kitchen appliance

classic. this is the artisan. but good find
My friend runs a lil cake making business from home and has the pink. So wish I had the money!
I sooooooo want one of these but just can't justify it (yet!). Please can someone tell me how to track the price of products must be a very useful tool. Great post if you can stretch to it as I expect these will last forever!
Good price for the UK, but it disgusts me how much cheaper these are in the USA.

I opted to buy one of the older Kenwood models off ebay for £60. Despite being over 30 years old, it still runs like a tank. Built to last, unlike a lot of the Kenwoods these days, many of which only have a 1 year warranty.
Got one of these and a KM020 and to be honest because the Kitchen Aid is a direct drive motor they are both equal work horses when it comes to mixing large amounts of ingredients. So please don't be fooled by the Kitchen Aids low wattage. Plus the Kitchen Aid comes in pretty colours!

Tried this, and unless you want a bulky transformer, or a small dodgy Chinese import, then I wouldn't bother. The motor wont last as long either as the wattage or Hz is different, or something.

I also got electric shocks from the blooming thing too.

That's the 'Classic'. A cheaper model that i've also been tracking. £309 is one of the highest prices Amazon have had it (it was £250 in Jan) so don't bother buying yet.

The artisan is a better model (apparently) and comes in a range of colours so for £5 more i went for it.

Camelcamelcamel.

Google it, it'll tell you what to do
I have one of these and they're lovely. Never use it though, I just look at it
I was only researching these this afternoon - spooky. Its a good price, but TBH I would never get anywhere near £332 worth of use out of it, and I'm a 'big' cook. After deciding I 'needed' one I gave myself a big reality check and so will be sticking to my little hand held Bamix that is 12 years old and still doing everything I need it to do.
Pricey? Yes! BUT ... I bought one in December and haven't stopped using it since. Baking is now a pleasure rather than a grind, bread, cakes, cheesecakes, cupcakes, etc. My husband thinks he's got a new wife. I love it. For those of you who do have one I thoroughly recommend the soft edged mixer blade available from Selfridges, saves alot of time scraping the sides of the bowl.
At this price I might treat myself to a different colour

It'll last the next 30 years - for £10 a year, I'll be getting more than enough use out of mine.
~£200 in America after 20% tax.
