The KitchenAid stand mixer is shiny. Iconic. Used by every contestant of the Great British Baking Show. And let’s be honest: a little expensive. But now, thanks to these KitchenAid mixer Black Friday deals, they’re 28 percent off. Yes, we know it’s not quite Black Friday yet (that’s November 27, by the way!), but this year there are a lot of early deals leading up to the event. If you’ve dreamed of adding one of these powerful stand mixers to your countertop (or need an impressive gift for the baker and confectioner in your life), this is the time to buy.
Right now, the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer is on sale for $280 at Bed Bath & Beyond. KitchenAid usually prices these stand mixers at around $400, so this sale is significant. The KitchenAid Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer is also on sale and Bed Bath and Beyond; it’s available for $350 (usually $500). You can also score the KitchenAid Ultra Power Plus 4.5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer at a discount of 34 percent off at Target for $230 (originally $350).
If you’re skeptical about whether anyone actually needs one of KitchenAid’s 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.
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 that 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. It’s available in more than 20 different colors.
There are dozens of attachments that can make your KitchenAid stand mixer even more versatile—and many of them are on sale leading up to this year’s Black Friday sales too. You can get a discounted pasta attachment for rolling and cutting noodles, as well as a spiralizing attachment, and the meat grinding attachment (a popular option among our readers). You can also get the paddle attachment—our staff writer Kendra’s favorite KitchenAid add-on, on sale right now.
