There’s been a real trend toward everything tiny—tiny homes, tiny desserts, tiny gadgets, tiny vehicles and now, tiny kitchen appliances—and the trend shows no signs of shrinking.
We understand the appeal. Small is convenient, counter space being the finite resource it is. And small is often darn cute. KitchenAid’s new Artisan Mini Stand Mixer is both. Superbly so!
First of all, a good stand mixer is a must for anyone with a culinary bone in their body, and KitchenAid makes the best ones. They’re super handy not just for mixing, but their many attachments also let you whip, juice, dough hook, make sausages, peel vegetables and more.
The new Artisan Mini is a fraction of the size as the classic version (25 per cent lighter with a 20 per cent smaller footprint), but has the same churning power and fits all the same attachments. This means you’ll finally be able to have the stand mixer you’ve always wanted but didn’t buy because A) it was a hefty financial investment and B) you’d have had to knock out a wall in the kitchen to fit it in.
And, don’t worry, although it’s small, its 3.5-quart bowl can still spit out five dozen cookies in one batch—you know, if you’re a five dozen cookie type of person.
Plus it looks beautiful! So, even if you couldn’t bake a muffin to save your life (don’t worry, we’re not judging), you’re still going to want one of these in your kitchen, because it looks good, and it makes you look good. And no matter the colour scheme in your tiny cooking space, you’ll find the mixer to match as KitchenAid is offering them in ten different hues.
