mimi,

 I hit that link.  that 150 em. red is a 5 qt. 325 watts. 209.?

I think the better deal would be the 6 qt. in the ribbon above. 249.  its a 6 qt. with a lift bowl and is 575 watts.

Keeping in mind that these are refurbished machines. The 575 watt has metal gears. It makes it a pretty noisy mixer, and

a lot were returned with nothing wrong with them.

just sayin

I saw that when I went to close the link.

Yeah in the lite of the other machines being there I would also recommend spending the extra "dough" lol.

The smaller is ok for most things but I don't think it would pull thru stuff like bread dough or running the ice cream attachment until thick and thicker.

For home use the 5 quart has worked fine for me. No problem with bread dough or meat grinding. Can't imagine a problem with ice cream but don't have that attachment

Is your machine the 325 watt?

My daughter has the Artisan (but mom it is so cute!!! the yellow matches the accent wall of my kitchen perfectly!!!l  ;-)  and complained how it would "bog down" when kneading.

Sometimes even smelled smoke?

Do you have the plastic dough hook?

Yes, 325. Never had it bog down to the point of smoking. It gets warm when kneading but never smoking hot. Don't think the hook is plastic. It is white and appears to be coated metal
