Thanks again.
If I don't like the one I just ordered, you're to blame.

This one

I found a well written review that said the taller, narrower bowl of this model was better suited for mixing small quantities, which is right up my alley. He said the power was suitable, too. And the lift bowl design will work well for where I'm going to keep it. I have very limited counter space and the tilt head was worrying me until I saw they made them where the bowl can move up and down instead. The author recommended this one and it made sense to me.

There wasn't a long time between "I'll start poking around" and "I just bought"

Congratulations, you'll love it.

Well it's not like I had to go to the library, remember how to use a card catalogue, then thumb through a dozen Consumer Reports...
Gotta love the internet.

Thanks, Andy. I'm looking forward to getting it. I've had one on the back burner in mind for a while now. I don't have a hand mixer and like I was getting at earlier, there's only so much you can to with a FP, or a wooden spoon for that matter. I think it will be nice for mixing up meatballs, too.

It's great for meatballs and meatloaf, if you have a lot to make. You are going to love it!

Even if I'm just making one loaf it will be nice to have, PF. I don't like handling raw meat. Then there's the whole washing your hands with bits of mixture on them and the water beading up... yuk. That's probably why I don't make meatloaf/balls as often as I do.

I have a couple of cats who would be more than happy to help you with that. I'm usually up to my elbows, I love playing with my food.

I got the Artisan in the Martha Stewart blue they call it Aqua Sky. They have discontinued that color but they obviously have some left that they are selling (not at a discount). However, when I took mine out of the box I noticed that there is a defect in the workmanship (the chrome not meeting up with the painted part) so they are sending me a replacement which I hope is OK because I like this color.

As for the name, maybe I should call it Martha!

That is a good question, the old retro mixer is packed away so I can't check it and don't remember. Next time I go into that closet I will check and see.
