One of the most timeless kitchen appliances is KitchenAid’s stand mixer, which is now 101 years old. KitchenAid first began producing stand mixers in 1919, and an executive’s wife called them “the best kitchen aid” — a nickname that still holds true today.
This classic appliance not only instantly makes any kitchen feel more professional, but it’s also a super helpful food prep tool when it comes to baking, making homemade pasta and more — just take it from the 23,000 five-star reviews that it’s racked up from fans. The company still produces everything in its U.S. factory in Greenville, Ohio, proving that KitchenAid is still a quintessential, all-American household name.
While there’s no doubt that KitchenAid stand mixers are a big investment in terms of price, now’s the time to invest if you’ve been thinking about buying one — especially while the mixers are $100 off.
When choosing which KitchenAid stand mixer to purchase, it’s helpful to note how much countertop space you have, as these appliances do take up a significant amount of room. Luckily, they also come in several different sizes.
The 3.5-quart mini mixer is a great start for beginners and can still make up to five dozen cookies in a single batch, but it’s unfortunately now out of stock. The next-best option is the 5-quart mixer, which is the standard model (with 23,000 five stars) that’s available in 38 different colors. Meanwhile, the Pro 600 Series is for those who need to make larger batches. And if you still can’t decide which one is best for you, KitchenAid has a handy guide to help you choose.
And while the KitchenAid brand has been around for 101 years, that’s not the only aspect that makes these famous mixers a stand-out purchase. The mixers are powerful enough to knead a bulk batch of bread dough (up to four loaves!) and even whip sticky honey. Plus, the KitchenAid Artisan Series is made to handle dough for up to nine dozen cookies and seven pounds of mashed potatoes, thanks to 10 different speeds. And what sets KitchenAid’s mixers apart is how quickly and evenly ingredients are mixed together through the brand’s unique planetary action, regardless of mixer size.
While the stand mixers come with a stainless steel bowl, you can swap it out for a ceramic option or one with a fun pattern — KitchenAid offers more than 30 different bowl designs. And if you’re really feeling like getting into making homemade pasta or spiralizing vegetables to try in different dishes, the KitchenAid mixer attachments are also super helpful for specific tasks.
