Advice needed on best electric stand mixer

I've been looking to buy an electric stand mixer, I'd been thinking about the Kitchenaid Artisan, but some of the reviews have me feeling a bit leery.. comments on about oil leaking from the housing, and cheap plastic parts are making me think twice. The Artisan has better reviews than the Professional model. I'd appreciate any suggestions as I'd like to purchase one that I can rely on. I'd use it for a variety of baked goods, including bread dough.
