Artisan KSM150 Almond Cream stand mixer
Debenham's product description contains a lie.
"This 'Almond Cream' food mixer from KitchenAid boasts a direct drive motor which is silent, reliable and ......"
Silent it isn't. In fact it's the noisiest food mixer I have ever used.
Sounds like cement mixer.
I checked around, went to other shops, listened to them all. They were all very noisy.
So Debenham's, how can your description say it's motor is silent?
Other than that it's fine.
A big investment - but worth it
I've had my cream KitchenAid mixer for over a year now, purchased online. No, you won't find much discount on these, and yes the price is jaw-dropping, BUT it is worth it. Try to think in terms of value for money and price per use and longevity and quality, and you will find it unbeatable. It looks good and it works beautifully, every time. The great thing is, you can set it going (say beating together your butter and sugar) whilst you stir something else, or weigh out ingredients. It is also a thing of beauty on your worktop. Pay the money and then enjoy it. that's my advice.
Unfortunately I had to return our first mixer as it broke inside 12 months. However, Debenhams were excellent and replaced it with a brand new one so hopefully this will not have any problems. It makes great bread and cakes and looks wonderful on the work top.
Absolutely love the mixer & great customer service!
This was a 30th birthday present and I love it- although it is expensive it really looks the business on my kitchen work surface! Only used a handful of times but I have enjoyed using it.
I was impressed with Debenham's customer service and thought they deserved some good feedback. My partner bought this well in advance of my birthday and when I received it, I actually really wanted to change the colour, however it was outside the 28 day returns period. We took it back to one of the stores and they exchanged it quibble free and even honoured the promotional discount that had been running on the item when first bought. They didn't have the cream one in stock but arranged for it to be sent to my home address and I received it within a couple of days! Very happy and would buy more from Debenhams in the future.
Always wanted a Artisan
So pleased with my new Kitchen Aid. I have wanted one for a long time. Its a must for any cake baker. Mine is in Almond Cream a lovely shade.
After years of longing and watching Nigella and co making fantastic recipes I too am now the proud owner of a Kitchenaid. In fact my son has taken a photo of it and used it as my screen saver (a little extreme I know). However, it is a beautiful piece of machinery and makes the most excellent cakes. A worthy investment for any keen cook and looks totally outstanding in any kitchen.
Having carefuly looked at reviews of mixers I am glad I didn't buy the smaller version or another brand. The kitchenaid is well made, lovely to look at and makes great cakes, pastry etc
should have invested in one sooner.
