Without further ado, let’s jump on this stand mixer’s review.

KitchenAid Artisan KSM 150PS

First Look

At first look, we see a shiny and brilliant-looking stand mixer with a silver stripe on its top. The base of the stand mixer is glossy and smooth and holds a stainless steel mixing bowl that looks well polished. The neck is attached to the top of the stand mixer. You can tilt the head from its neck to add or remove attachments.

The head of the stand mixer contains a silver stripe and speed regulating buttons on one side. On the front, there is a port for extra attachments like a pasta maker, vegetable noodle maker, and meat grinder.

This stand mixer comes in various colors. Twenty different colors of the stand mixer make it easier to match it to your kitchen’s look and scheme while performing its best.

Size and Capacity

KitchenAid Artisan KSM 150PS has 14.1 inches in length x 13.9 inches in width x 8.7 inches in height. We won’t say it’s compact because it occupies a good space in your kitchen. So if you want to store it somewhere else, make sure that the storage cabinet is big enough to fit in this entire stand mixer.

This stand mixer is made of stainless steel, adding to its high weight of 25 pounds. We know that it’s not easy to carry around, but because of its vast color range, it can stay on the kitchen countertops, enhancing the kitchen look.

Coming to its capacity, the stainless steel bowl has 5 quarts capacity, so it easily takes two to three batches of bread in one mixing.

However, we will not recommend exceeding more than 4.6 quarts as overfilling will result in a splatter of the dough or the watery batter.

Mixing Method

There are two types of mixing methods in this stand mixer which are planetary and rotary. We prefer planetary because it rotates and moves around the mixing bowl to enhance its mixing ability.

This piece of KitchenAid has a planetary mixing action that touches 59 points of your mixing bowl and helps in precise and uniform mixing. So you won’t need to scrape the bowl’s sides often like you do with the Hamilton Beach stand mixer.

Power and Speed

Compared to the KitchenAid Classic 275 watts motor, this Artisan series has an amped-up power of 325 watts. This power helps to knead the toughest of doughs and batters without heating up, which is the main problem in the KitchenAid classic.

It comes in 10-speed settings; each of them increases with the level.

But our favorite part of this Speed setting is its smooth transition. The KitchenAid always starts with a slow speed, and when you change the speed to a higher level, it adapts to it slowly, so you know how much control you have over the dough or batter mixing.


1. Dough Kneading

The dough for pizza or some bread needs to rise and be airy. Also, there should be a uniform mix without dry ingredients or flour patches.

The KitchenAid Artisan KSM 150PS stand mixer incorporates air into the dough while mixing the wet and dry ingredients uniformly. It ensures that the yeast in the dough is widely distributed so it can rise uniformly.

You can knead the dough until they form a soft and firm ball. And after resting it, you will see a surprising rise in the dough, which, on baking, gives perfect, airy, light bread with a beautiful crust on top.

2. Batter Mixing

The main problem in batter mixing manually is clumping. On mixing several cake batters, we concluded that if you pull wet ingredients first and slowly add the dry ingredients on the KitchenAid stand mixer, you will see no clumps in the cake batter.

Also, there is minimal to no need to scrape the corners and sides of the bowl as its planetary mixing action automatically scrapes off the sides and mixes in the batter uniformly. The batter is airy, light, and uniformly mixed, which gives the perfect rise to the cake or any brownies.

3. Whisking

Whether it’s meringue, cheesecakes, or frosting, the result you need is firm peaks that are not runny. Hand mixing these frostings or egg white is another level of workout that you don’t want to do.

On turning the mixer on speed levels 4 and 5, you’ll get stiff peaks on egg whites, frosting, or whipped cream within 5 minutes. The whisk attachment uniformly beats the egg white and incorporates a lot of air to make it light and stiff.

So even when whipping heavy cream, you won’t need to worry because it will do the entire job for you. But make sure that there is a splash guard attached when whipping heavy cream before it can spread out and make your kitchen dirty.


Its attachments include:

  • A nylon-coated flat beater
  • A metal whisk
  • A nylon-coated dough hook
  • A splash guard to prevent a mess in the kitchen

All of these components are dishwasher safe. However, we recommend you wash the nylon-coated flat beater and dough hook with your hand so as not to scrape off its coating during dishwashing.


  • Available in variety of colors.
  • Powerful motor.
  • Scrape and mix from the sides of bowl.
  • Doesn’t heat up.
  • Dishwasher friendly.
  • Uniform mixing.


  • Heavy.
  • Occupies a lot of space on countertop.


In today’s edit, we shared the KitchenAid Artisan KSM 150PS review, describing all of its features and reviewing its performance to see if it’s worth buying or not. This stand mixer is great for those who enjoy baking bread and cakes. Its powerful motor, combined with a 5-quart capacity, makes it easier to mix big batches of tough doughs and batters within minutes.

It is easy to use, has ten levels of speed transition, is sturdy, and doesn’t wobble in heavy load. Above all, it gives you airy and smoothly whisked heavy creams and egg whites. The mixing action scrapes the batters and doughs from the sides and gives lump-free mixing. In short, it’s a great stand mixer for everyday bakers.

You can check out this stand mixer if you are willing to spend on a sound mixer to make fluffy cakes and frostings.
