What is the KitchenAid® Artisan® Mini Stand Mixer?

The Artisan Mini Stand Mixer is 20% smaller and 25% lighter* making it ideal for smaller spaces and kitchens. With a 3.5 Quart bowl to make up to 5 dozen cookies and with over ten available hub powered attachments, make everything from fresh pasta to burgers, veggie noodles, and more. And with new colors ranging from bold to understated, there's a Mini to match both your kitchen and style. Make the new Artisan mini the culinary center of your kitchen.

*Compared to full-size KitchenAid® tilt-head stand mixers

How can it be powerful when it's so small?

The Artisan Mini uses an efficient, compact DC motor that delivers the power you need while taking up less space. This mixer is powerful enough for nearly any task or recipe, whether you're stirring wet and dry ingredients together, kneading bread dough or whipping cream.

How much does Artisan Mini weigh?

The Artisan Mini weighs 16 lbs., which is 25% lighter than the KitchenAid full-size tilt head stand mixer.

What is meant by the Soft Start® Feature?

The Soft Start® feature helps to avoid ingredient splash and flour puff by starting at a lower speed.

Which parts are dishwasher safe?

The flat beater, dough hook, flex edge beater, and bowl are dishwasher safe. The wire whip should be hand-washed.

Does the Artisan Mini have overload protection?

Yes, this ensures if the mixer cannot turn a KitchenAid® beater accessory or KitchenAid® stand mixer attachment connected through the Power Hub after 5 seconds, the mixer will turn off.

Because it is smaller, will I need to let it rest between multiple batches of heavier recipes such as pasta or bread dough?

The smaller size of Artisan Mini does not require rest time different from that of other full-size KitchenAid tilt-head stand mixers.

Can you use the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer attachments with Artisan Mini?

Yes. The Artisan Mini is compatible with all hub powered KitchenAid Stand Mixer attachments. However, Mini is not compatible with bowl attachments (Ice Cream, Precise Heat Mixing Bowl). 

Does the Artisan Mini come with instructions?

Yes, an Owner's Manual is included.
