KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM195PSEBE, Artisan Mini Mixer/Standmixer 4,8 l beetroot
The KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM food processor is the brand’s top-of-the-line processor. This food processor, sold at 749€, tries to keep all its promises in a hyper competitive context. Here is our full review of the brand’s flagship appliance.
Presentation of the appliance
The KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM food processor is a multifunctional food processor that is already well known to customers as it has been a best-seller for a few years now for the American brand KitchenAid.
The Artisan 5KSM195PSEBE (beet) by KitchenAid is above all a refined design with customizable lines and retro design, which gives it an undeniable advantage. In fact, at first glance, this appliance with its faithful design gives a feeling of quality conception as the materials make a good impression. Moreover, KitchenAid has thought of the practical side by integrating a hanging system to attach additional accessories to the robot.
The dimensions of the robot are 36 cm x 24 cm x 37 cm for an empty weight of 11.1 kg. Its imposing dimensions give it robustness and stability, even when the robot is tested at full capacity. Note that there are several versions of this same robot offered in several colors, including a mini version.
When you unpack the box, you will find the following accessories as standard with the food processor:
- A 4.8 L bowl with a handle;
- A flat beater;
- A 6 wire whisk;
- A dough hook;
- and the instructions for use of the food processor.
In some versions of the food processor, you will also have a pouring/protective lid. This will be useful for inserting ingredients into the food processor during preparation without the risk of splashing. Finally, we appreciate the presence of an adjustable screw located under the mixing head that allows you to adjust the height of the beater so that it reaches the bottom of the bowl and ensures that the entire preparation is worked and that the results are perfectly homogeneous.
The features of the Artisan 5KSM food processor
The Artisan 5KSM food processor comes standard with a whisk, a flat beater and a dough hook. With these accessories, the food processor can whip or mix food, beat eggs, mashed potato potatoes and knead bread or pie dough.
As you can see, it has multiple uses. This is possible thanks to the 10 speeds integrated in the robot. You will be able to obtain quality results with a food processor that ensures speed and precision in your preparations.
In addition, the robot has the particularity of planetary motion mixing. This means that the mixer moves in one direction and the whisk in the other direction to bring the ingredients to the center of the bowl more efficiently and obtain homogeneous results.
The 325 watt direct drive motor more than lives up to customers’ expectations and does not lose power during the entire preparation process. The results are more than satisfactory since the robot works very quickly, no matter what the type of preparation.
A versatile and practical food processor for everyday use
The KitchenAid food processor has a handle on the bowl that makes it very easy to handle, which improves its practicality on a daily basis.
Note also that the robot incorporates a fastening system that allows you to attach additional accessories. To do this, you will have to go through the purchase process since they are sold separately by the brand. The robot can then integrate new functionalities thanks to the accessories sold by KitchenAid. In fact, the range of accessories is quite extensive, which will considerably improve the versatility of the food processor. We are thinking in particular of the grater, the slicer, the chopper, the juicer and many other accessories that will take the food processor out of its working environment dedicated to pastry making. However, beware of the price of these accessories, which can quickly add up. However, you can take advantage of online promotional offers to obtain these same accessories at a lower price. Other generic accessories can also do the trick at much cheaper prices.
For the maintenance of the KitchenAid food processor, you won’t have to make much effort. Indeed, its maintenance is rather simple since the stainless steel bowl can be washed directly in the dishwasher. The same goes for the 3 accessories as well as the anti-splash lid which are also dishwasher safe. Be careful with the 3 accessories, as the brand recommends placing them in the upper rack of your dishwasher to improve the durability of the products.
Comparison with other models of the brand
THE 5KSM195PSEBE is well equipped with accessories, if you have enough space in your kitchen, this is the model we recommend.

Our opinion on the KitchenAid artisan food processor 5KSM195PSEBE
The tilting head food processor is powerful, functional and efficient. With almost impeccable results in all tests, the KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM food processor meets all our expectations.
The only small hitch could be the lack of an automatic protection in case of engine overheating. However, this only concerns a small number of customers who have been using it for years, which might suggest that these are isolated cases. The robot is also intended to be qualitative. The customer reviews after years of use are very positive on this subject and all converge towards the observation of a very slow wear of the materials. The same goes for the motor, which does not show any decrease in power after hundreds of hours of use.
Thanks to the multiple accessories sold in addition to the robot, the 5KSM195PSEBE could even compete with some multifunctional robots.
Finally, we appreciate the effort of the brand for the personalization of the robot which comes in 19 colors including the beautiful beet color that we tried.
