Kitchen Aid Mixer

Back in November I was asking for opinions on different stand mixers because I wanted one really bad. Well, my husband wouldn't let me get one.

Then on Valentines Day he told me that when we get some money we're expecting I can get one. So I went to kitchen aid's website and went to their store and noticed that they have a close out section. (http://www.shopkitchenaid.com/produc...AND&HDR=outlet)

They're selling Artisan mixers for $199 (reg $299) with no tax (unless you live in CT) and free ground shipping. So of course I ordered one.

The colors are kinda different, but if you can get past that then they're a great deal.

I'm so excited!!

Wow Congratulations -- that's about what I paid for mine at a local store that was going out of business.

A great deal on a great mixer -- I use mine to make waffles and pancakes batter all the time -- whips them up nice and airy.

I can't wait to get mine. I make pizza with a whole wheat crust that I have to make from scratch and I'm really looking forward to having that dough hook.

I'm on Ebay now looking for a cover for it. With all my critters I figure a cover is a good idea. I've found several that a lady makes. She charges between $6-7 and only charges $2.75 to ship. She's got a ton on there.

Mine just sits atop the Fridge next to the cookbooks hehe

I've made cookies in mine as well (first thing I used it for) what a HUGE difference it makes -- I love letting it do all the work.

I want to get the Ice Cream maker attachment for it now

I mentioned before that Brandon and I got one as an engagement gift from his parents and it really made a HUGE difference while I was making Christmas cookies. Not only was I free to do other preparations during the mixing period, but I was less tired afterwards.

We have an Artisan, too. I would have LOVED to get the purple one, but I gotta think of my future hubby.

I'd originally ordered the Crystal Blue. I pulled up the site to show Aaron what I'd ordered and saw that they'd put another color on closeout that I liked better.

I called them to see if my order had shipped yet and they told me that it hadn't so I asked them if I could change the color. They canceled the old order and did a new one with the color that I wanted. I got the ice color this time.

It's going to be here on Tuesday!!! Have I mentioned how excited I am?

To make the deal even sweeter, I found a $20 cash back and 1 yr subscription to "Food & Wine" magazine. I don't really care about the magazine. This makes my actual cost $179.00!!! I'm glad my husband made me wait. I don't think I'd have gotten such a good deal if I had gotten it when I wanted it.

So any suggestions on what I should make first??

Amanda, you mentioned the pizza with the whole wheat crust. Since that sounds yummy to me, make that!

Just be sure to send me a piece of pizza!
