The KitchenAid stand mixer is shiny. Iconic. And let’s be honest: a little expensive. But now, thanks to these KitchenAid mixer Cyber Monday deals, they’re on sale at almost every major retailer. If you’ve dreamed of adding one of these powerful stand mixers to your countertop or need an impressive gift for the baker in your life, this is the time to buy. (And if you already own one but are looking for KitchenAid attachments, fear not, those are on sale too.)
All of KitchenAid’s stand mixers use the same planetary mixing action: the beater moves one way while the drive shaft moves the other; the bowl stays stationary. Both the Ultra Power Plus and the Artisan models use a tilt-head design, which lets you hinge back the head of the mixer to easily add ingredients. These mixers are around 14 inches tall, so they’re ideal for smaller spaces. Both models come with a flat beater, dough hook, and a 6-wire whip. The main difference between the two is the bowl size and the Artisan has a slightly higher wattage output: 325 watts compared to the Ultra Power Plus’s 300 watts. And though these stand mixers come with a handled stainless steel bowl, we strongly recommend buying an extra one.
The bowl lift mixer takes it up a notch. Unlike the tilt head style, which allows for the head of the mixer to hinge back from the neck of base while the bowl fastens to the bottom, in the bowl-lift style, the bowl sits on the arms of the mixer and moves up and down with a lever. The 6-quart bowl can mix dough for 13 dozen cookies, 8 loaves of bread, or 8 pounds of mashed potatoes in a single batch. Unlike the standard C-shaped dough hook, this model comes with a spiral-shaped one in burnished aluminum.
There are dozens of attachments that can make your KitchenAid stand mixer even more versatile. Right now, you can get a discounted pasta attachment for rolling and cutting noodles, a spiralizer, and a meat grinding attachment (a favorite among our readers). You can also get the paddle attachment—our staff writer Kendra’s favorite KitchenAid add-on, on sale right now.
If you’re skeptical about whether anyone actually needs one of these coveted stand mixers, know this: There are one hundred recipes we wouldn’t even attempt without one. Make honey brioche! Make homemade marshmallows! Easily make a big batch of chocolate chip cookies or a loaf of crusty bread. These mixers are truly kitchen workhorses.
