Which Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Should I Buy


Which Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Should I Buy

If you love your bake-offs, you'll need the best KitchenAid stand mixer to make delicious cakes and bakes. With its iconic, retro appeal and impressive power to quickly beat, knead and whip up a storm, the KitchenAid stand mixer is a home essential and gold standard.

With its 250-watt motor, it has ample kneading power to quickly rustle up cakes, cookies, brownies and other small batch recipes. In addition, this is also a suitable stand mixer for children to help out in the kitchen (and lick the bowl at the end!). It may not be as powerful as the other models, but it will certainly get the job done well. Those with small kitchens or with cluttered countertops will appreciate this KitchenAid Artisan mini.

A stand mixer is a heavy-duty electric mixer built into a stationary stand with a bowl. Most have multiple speeds, can handle dense ingredients and offer hands-free operation. Stand mixers can usually mix, whip and knead with various accessories but also shred meat, mash potatoes, churn out fresh guacamole and more.

Bowls usually attach to the base of the mixer. The head tilts back to provide easy access to the bowl and beater, which makes adding ingredients or swapping out accessories a snap. Most tilt-head models can easily handle everyday mixtures, and offer small to mid-range capacities. This style mixer tends to have a lower profile for countertop storage and can usually tuck nicely under most kitchen cabinets.

The main difference between the stand mixers is how bowls are attached. The tilt-head hinges back while the bowl-lift has a lever to raise and lower the bowl. Learn more about tilt-head vs bowl-lift stand mixers to find the right one for you.

Number of attachments range depending on the brand of your stand mixer. KitchenAid offers over 10 power-hub attachments compatible with every stand mixer, and an ice cream maker attachment compatible with full-size and bowl-lift mixers. Learn more about KitchenAid stand mixer attachments.

KitchenAid offers a wide range of bowl designs in stainless steel, glass or ceramic so you can find the perfect bowl for your mixer and your recipes. Find out which bowls are compatible with your model.

A stand mixer is the crown jewel of a kitchen, and KitchenAid's stand mixers have been the standard for over a century. They make efficient work of whipping egg whites to soft or stiff peaks, turning cream into whipped cream, churning out big batches of cookies, and kneading tough, heavy bread doughs.

But I didn't just rely on my previous experiences. I researched eight models and put four top-selling KitchenAid stand mixers through a standard set of tests for this guide. I used a King Arthur recipe for bagels, a stiff dough with a 10-minute mixing time; I prepared Compost Cookies (kitchen-sink cookies with five cups of mix-ins including chocolate chips, potato chips, and pretzels) from New York City's Milk Bar; and put each mixer through additional tests to evaluate its capacity, mixing capability, and ease of use. You can read more about how I tested KitchenAid stand mixers below, along with how to shop for a KitchenAid and what to make with it.

If you're an occasional or beginner baker, the KitchenAid Classic Plus 4.5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer is a great model to begin with. It's made with the same metal parts as more expensive KitchenAid stand mixers, has a strong motor, and a relatively roomy work bowl. While on the smaller side, it still easily accommodates single batches of common recipes.

An earlier version of the KitchenAid Classic Plus was, in fact, my first mixer. I used it heavily for about five years until it gave out on me while kneading dough for hand-pulled noodles (a notoriously tricky dough, and one known to tax stand mixers). This issue first highlighted to me how most stand mixers break and the importance of choosing a model built for your typical usage.

Stiff or heavy doughs like bagel dough, pizza dough, and some nood
