Adequate, but not superior

Pros:Versatility.  Many attachments.  Mixes superbly. 

Cons:Lack of power.  Power is only adequate.  Rattles & Shakes when kneading dough.

I happily own 2 Artisan mixers (One black and one white).  I bought the white as a "referbished" model and have had no problems whatsoever.  The black has remained unused in the box as future replacement for the white.

I use the mixer often to knead bread dough.  It works well enough, although the minimal power is of the Artisan is apparent with sluggish effort to knead tighter doughs. 

I also have several attachment features (meat grinder, shredder & slicer, etc.)  These are generally made of hard plastic, metal would be better.  When pushing hard vegetables like carrots or bread throught the grater/slicer attachment, the Artisan whines with effort, but still does the job well.

The main draw back of the Artisan is the LACK OF POWER.  I would love to upgrade to the Ultra Power or Pro models.  But, for the average home cook, the Artisan suffice.
