Great Addition to Your Culinary Empire: Red Artisan Mini Mixer

If you have a red kitchen, or using a red themed decor in your kitchen, the Empire Red Artisan Mini Mixer by KitchenAid would look great with your color scheme!
.


This color, Empire Red, is the most popular and widely sold color of the bigger Artisan mixer, and will likely become just as popular with this smaller version of stand mixer.

Here are some examples of different color combos that include red:
.

  • red, orange and yellow
  • black, white and red
  • green, blues and red
  • shades of gray, black and red

Of course, red would be a nice color pop in about any kitchen’s color scheme.
.
So if you like red, this allows you to have a color you love, and at the same time have a great mixer that will be a joy to use.

Pros and Cons of the Empire Red Mini Mixer

.
Of course, getting a pretty color is nice and all, but if the mixer doesn’t work well, you’ve just got a nice-colored dud in your kitchen. Fortunately, this empire red mini mixer not only looks good, but performs great too.
.
But as with all products, there are some good things and some that aren’t quite so good. You can see some of the pros and cons of this mixer in the graphic below.
.

Artisan Mini Empire Red
The Good
  • Smaller Size so fits under cabinets
  • Smaller weight so easier to move
  • Tilt head makes it easy to get beater out of bowl
  • Same powerful motor as Classic mixer
The Bad
  • Premium mixer with a premium price
  • Wire whip is not designated as dishwasher safe (other attachments are)
  • Smaller bowl so can't do several loaves of bread at once

I think the good far outweighs the bad for this lovely red mixer. Yes, you have to pay more for a good mixer, but it’s an investment that will repay you for years to come.

Different Mini Artisan Stand Mixer Packages in Empire Red

There are different bundles available for the Empire Red Kitchenaid Artisan Mini Mixer. Here are three presently available for you to choose from:
.

.

Deal #1: Mixer with bowl and 3 beaters.

The first package deal is shown up at the top of this post in the box comparing the good and bad features of the mini mixer.

Included in this bundle is the Empire Red Artisan Mini Mixer, a flat beater, dough hook, wire whip and 3½-qt. steel bowl. Once again, this bowl does NOT have the handle, and it does not have the flex edge beater. Instead it comes with the 3 attachments mentioned (flat beater, dough hook, wire whip).
.

.

Deal #2: Mixer and Flex Edge Beater.

. This premium package deal shown in the picture below comes with the Flex-Edge beater. If you buy this particular beater separately it costs about forty dollars. .

This package deal includes the mixer, polished stainless steel bowl with a handle along with the Flex Edge beater, and is a great buy. (Picture and buy button to the left of this text.)
.
If you like a mixing bowl with a handle, this is probably the best deal for you. The other attachments such as the dough hook and wire whip can be purchased separately if you would like to get them as well.
.
So just keep in mind that since this mixer comes with the Flex Edge beater, the flat beater, dough hook or wire whip are NOT included.

Bottom line: this package has the mixer, bowl and Flex Edge Beater.
.

.
So it all depends on what you want most with your Empire Red mini mixer: a bowl with or without a handle? A flex-edge beater, or a set of 3 attachments: flat beater, dough hook and wire whip? Pick your favorite and go for it!
.
It doesn’t matter which bundle you decide to buy, you will have a Kitchen Aid mixer that works well in smaller kitchens, and if you’re looking for a lighter mixer to be able to move it around more easily, got you covered there as well. It’s got the reliability of the KitchenAid brand, a powerful motor, 10-speeds for mixing at the best speed for the job, and the ability to add other attachments to make this Artisan Mini even more versatile.
.
So if a red mixer that looks good and does a good job is the right combo for you, get yours today!
