- Quality-built stand mixer Review by shred101
I absolutely love my KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer. I have used it numerous times and it has performed flawlessly every time. The construction of these mixers is second to none. The gears used in these are not like most mixers which use plastic gears. These employ metal gears for many years of trouble-free use. The only negative thing I can mention about this unit, is since it is a refurbished unit, it does not come with the pouring shield. That must be purchased separately.
