I couldn't afford a Viking. Had to settle for a KA Artisan.

Yes, on average Vikings are $100 more But people buy used KA's everyday....and i just happened to sell mine with most attachments that got me to where i was able to buy the mixer and the meat grinding attachment with it.

Viking is much more than $100 higher than a KA Artisan. I paid $205 for mine. Granted it was a good deal and they usually run about $250-$300, but the cheapest Viking I've found is about $500.... way too much for me.

it looks like the Viking is made by DeLonghi (Kenwood). Is it made in the UK? It looks like a heck of a mixer. Not really sure why people are so concerned with the noise. You are cooking, not reading or meditating. I have worked in hotel and resturant kitchens, now there is some serious noise. I love my Kenwood, wouldn't trade my KA Pro6 for anything but a Pro 600, and wish I had a 12qt Hobart. I will have to give the Viking a closer look-see.
