Death of a Kitchenaid. Now what?

jefpen2 | Dec 27, 201308:32 PM

So it's the end of the road for my Kitchenaid 5qt stand mixer. It is not a tilt head which I like. I replaced the gears for the attachments about 2 years age. My question is -

1. should I go for an artisan
2. try to find a 5qt that is not a tilt head.
3. go for the 6qt pro 600.

The artisan has great reviews and is a bit cheaper, but it is a tilt head.

The 5qt is great and I would have and extra bowl from the last mixer, but it might be hard to find.

The 6 qt is great and powerful, but I'm not sure I want to spend the extra $ and it's really annoying doing like a cup of cream in it.

Any thoughts.

I thought about Viking, but that would mean buying a new grinder and I have heard mixed reviews.

P.S. I use the mixer about 3-4 times a week, once for bread. Grind meat about once a month.

Thanks for the help!
