I really like the lighter weight and comparatively powerful motor of this Classic Plus mixer. I noticed that this is the model they use on America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country on PBS. It has the right size bowl for the size batches I have been making lately. And my old grinder and pasta attachments work fine with it. Highly recommended.
Do you need a stand mixer? No, probably not, but it sure takes the grunt work out of stirring and kneading. It also mixes more consistently than I could by hand and classes up the counter.
If you're set on a stand mixer, should you buy this one? Maybe. It's not designed for huge amounts of heavy dough or constant use. It's built well, but it's not an industrial machine. It audibly strains and thumps with a double helping of cookie dough (around 25 oz of flour) and while kneading wet, thick pizza dough. With that sort of load, there's no speed difference between setting 6 and 10, though of course you'd only knead at setting 2 anyway.
KitchenAid has some mixers that are ostensibly a bit stronger. They're all lift-style: instead of tilting the head back, the head sits higher and you raise and lower the bowl. I prefer the tilt-head style. The paddles never get out of the way with the bowl-lift, getting the bowl to lock in place is a jerky movement, and it takes up a lot of vertical counter space. What you do get for the extra cost of the Pro series is a better dough hook, a metal gearbox, more power, and a slightly larger bowl. Even these higher-power mixers will fall short of alternatives from Bosch and Electrolux for serious breadmaking, however.
If you opt for the Artisan, you gain 1/2 QT of bowl capacity, a handle on the bowl, the splash guard, and color choices besides white. Otherwise, it's functionally identical to this model and about the same power. The splash guard in particular is a fiddly thing, you spill less just tilting the mixer up and dumping your ingredients in. I do think the larger bowl and the handle are worth something though (especially for double recipes), so the Artisan may be preferable for more than just the color.
There's a lot of talk about Hobart units. Prior to about 1985, these mixers were made by Hobart, a supplier of industrial kitchen equipment. Later models are made by Whirlpool. There's some debate whether the new models are as good as the old ones, particularly in regard to the gearbox. My take is that if you can find an old Hobart (e.g., K4SS, K5-A, K5SS with a metal 'Hobart' placard) and it runs well, it's likely to keep running well no matter what you throw at it. But it won't be as clean and may not fit certain new bowls, paddles, or attachments.
New or old, these KitchenAid mixers are dead-simple to repair. The motor brushes are replaceable without dismantling the unit ($10 or so and hidden beneath the black circular covers), the speed governor is mechanically adjustable, and the gearbox is straightforward and easily accessible. This means that they're intriguing on the used market. People receive them as gifts and put them in the local classifieds with minimal use or minor flaws you can fix. Typical transaction prices are $125-$150, and I've seen this mixer as low as $75. For new units, Kohls has them on sale quite often.

If you'd rather have a more powerful bowl lift mixer, KitchenAid's refurbished store often has the Heavy Duty Series for around $175 (if you Google a coupon code). It's a doppelganger for the Pro 5 and includes the superior spiral dough hook. Whatever model you buy, try to have it on (even with an empty bowl) for a few minutes at least once a week or two. The oil-leak problem occurs when the oil breaks down from disuse. If the mixer runs with any frequency, you'll never encounter it.
First and foremost, do I even need a stand mixer? Well... No. But it is SO much easier!! I find I bake more because it's already out on my countertop. With a hand held mixer, I have to get it out, find the attachments, get a bowl... Ya know, typical lazy people problems, but really did detour me from making things if my time was limited. Now I just pour my ingredients and go. I also love that I can turn it on and do something else. So it shaves some minutes from baking and cooking.
Second: Will it take a lot of space?
That just depends on how much space you have in general. I live in a one-bedroom apartment. I don't have the most space in the world, but I have the mixer out with my other kitchen tools and sitting at an angle, if that makes sense. So it doesn't take up much room at all.
Third: Which line of KithchenAid Mixer should I get?
I debated for a very long time on this. I must note that I was debating with Black Friday quickly approaching. I scoured every website, every store, and newspaper circular looking for the best deal and what would suit me. I was put off by the classic line because it didn't come with a handle on the bowl and the lack of colors. I know the latter seems silly, but I like for my kitchen to be aesthetically pleasing.
I could get the Professional line cheap at Sam's in the right color. However, I don't like how the bowl mounts and dismounts because it may spill batter and... It's a little overkill for me. That thing is huge. I had actually decided that the Artisan line was best for me. BUT... the classic was such a good deal on Amazon for Black Friday, I couldn't resist. The savings made it worth it and allowed me to purchase a 4.5 quart bowl with a handle and still come out about $70 less than the Artisan line. As for the color, I found that there's a whole movement of people who decorate their mixers (some bloggers are very opposed to this). I got a cute decal in mint green fairly cheap. I actually like the decal much better than the aqua color I was so dead set on getting.
It works wonderfully. It doesn't take up nearly as much room as I thought it was going to. It looks great in my kitchen. It has saved me a lot of hassle - especially since I have two bowls now. I'm so in love with it, I'm thinking about getting more attachments. This was the best purchase I have made for my kitchen in a long time.
