The Metallic Chrome Artisan® Series model has a 325-watt motor that reliably delivers the power to handle heavy mixtures. The tilt-back mixer head allows for easy access to bowl and beaters. A lock lever holds the mixer head securely in place and the bowl fastens tightly to the base. The 5qt stainless steel bowl has an ergonomic handle that is contoured to fit the hand and makes lifting the bowl more comfortable. This mixer has a unique mixing action, the beater spins clockwise as the shaft spins counter clockwise. The beater spirals to 67 different points around the bowl, assuring quick and complete mixing. 10 speeds allow the user to select the right speed for the mixing job; from very high to very slow stir.
