    Default Difference betweenn artisan and professional kitchen aid mixer?

    Both are available for $200 refurbished with 6-month warranty on
    Amazon. The professional one has a more powerful motor and seems
    bigger. What are the functional differences? I read you can not add
    ingredients while mixing to the professional one, but I dont see how
    that can be?

    Don't screw around with a refurbished mixer. Get the best new one you
    can afford.

    If it doesn't break down in 6-months, why would there be anything
    wrong with it?

    Do some comparison shopping online. There is only one size of Artisan,
    but there are two sizes of Professional.

    Of course you can add ingredients to a Professional while mixing. Why
    couldn't you do it? I do it all the time with both my Professional and
    my Artisan. You need only be careful about the mixing speed you're using
    as you add ingredients to prevent eruptions of flour particulates or
    sloshing of liquids from the mixing bowl. But those are merely messy
    whereas other things can be ruinous. I warn you sternly against adding
    eggs to the bowl while any mixer is running. I learned my lesson
    eventually, and all it took was one slippery shell plummeting straight
    into my batter and whirring into a thousand irretrievable fragments to
    show me the light.

    I believe you are supposed to crack the eggs into a separate bowl and
    then add them to the mixer from that bowl so you can deal with any shell
    or bad egg issues before they get to your batter.

    Somebody had this negative review of the pro model which I dont
    understand:

    This type of mixer mimics in design what you see in professional
    bakeries inasmuch as it has a handle on the side of the mixer that you
    raise in order to bring the bowl to the beater level. This, in my
    opinion, is the drawback and I would never consider buying this model
    again. The level of inconvenience is tremendous and annoying. To be
    specific, it is very difficult to add ingredients with this design.
    Imagine you are mixing a batter and you must slowly and gradually add
    flour. You can't fit a 1/4 cup measuring cup within the bowl
    circumference (which is very small). To add ingredients, you must stop
    the machine; lower the bowl; add a the ingredient; raise the bowl; and
    begin the mixing process. You have to do this as many times as you
    need to add something to your batter. I couldn't imagine that someone
    had not thought of a solution for this problem, so I began my research.

    Somehow that's never bothered me in 35 years of owning one.
