Five Top Rated KitchenAid Stand Mixers
Whether you are a professional chef or just love to cook, you really need a good stand mixer. Several years ago I treated myself to a KitchenAid stand mixer and have been loyal ever since.
Not everyone has a need for the same size mixer, features or attachments so I decided it was a good idea to come up with the five top rated KitchenAid Stand Mixers.
One of the best and most useful small appliances you can have for your kitchen is a stand mixer. As I said, I have been using one for several years and I promise if you ever do, you will never go back to using a hand mixer.What's so great about a stand mixer? I want to share with you a few of the reasons I love mine and why all good cooks should have one, more especially one of the top rated KitchenAid stand mixers.
- Hands free mixing-Allows you to add ingredients without stopping the mixer
- Less Mess- We all know what happens when you are holding your hand mixer and make too swift of a move and potatoes or cake batter goes flying everywhere!
- Multiple speeds-With hand mixers you may only have one to three speeds but with stand mixers you may find five or more speeds, giving you more control.
- Sturdy & Stationary-This is a clear reason, especially since you no longer have to worry about constantly turning the bowl as you are mixing.
- Variety of heads and attachments-Generally you only get one set of beaters with a hand mixer but with most stand mixers you have multiple attachments for various different types of mixing.
KitchenAid Pear Stand Mixer
One of the more popular KitchenAid stand mixers is the Artisan series.
It has a powerful 325-watt motor and with all the available attachments you can use it to stuff fresh sausage, make homemade pasta, whip up some ice ream or give some fresh fruit a squeeze.
It is also very ergonomically designed and comes with a 5-quart stainless steel bowl making it large enough for just about any mixing job you may have.
Onyx Black Professional 5 Plus Series Stand Mixer
The Pro line of KitchenAid stand mixers are equipped with high-performance pro level motors. So if you are looking for a little more than average cooking, you may want to take a look at this line.
The one I have listed here is the Onyx Black but it is available in a variety of colors so it makes it easy to match any kitchen decor.
The powerful 450 watt motor is 30% more powerful than KitchenAid’s previous 5-quart stand mixers, so if you had an older model maybe its time for an upgrade! Makes a great gift idea!
Pro 600 Series-Empire Red Stand Mixer
Looking for something even more powerful? Then you might want to consider the most powerful KitchenAid stand mixer, the Pro 600 Series. It also happens to be one of the best selling models of Stand mixers with rave reviews.
If you need a mixer with the ability to churn through double batches of bread dough, then you are at the right place! It features a commercial style motor with all steel gear transmission for long lasting high performance.
This happens to be the model I bought for myself and I absolutely love it! Although I have been a KitchenAid fan for awhile, this by far surpasses my previous KitchenAid stand mixer in both power and capacity. Red happens to be my favorite color but it is available in a variety of colors as well.
KitchenAid Ultra Power Stand Mixer
If your cooking is limited to dinner and special occasions, you may be looking for a quality stand mixer that still fits your budget.
The KitchenAid Ultra Power stand mixer maybe the right choice for you. It comes in a variety of colors, has a 4.5 qt mixing bowl and a 300-watt motor still powerful enough for those double batches.
You can't go wrong with any model of the KitchenAid stand mixers, finding one that fits your budget and needs is the most important decision.
KitchenAid Custom Metallic Series 5-Quart Mixer
If you are looking for a great stand mixer but are not really into all the colors, you might want to consider KitchenAid's Custom Metallic series.
They not only have that professional look but they stand up to the the test of professional use as well.
The custom metallic series features a 5-quart (or 9-cup flour) capacity, 325-watt motor and offers you 10 speeds for greater versatility. So if you were considering the Artisan series, this model is equally as powerful.
If you are looking for a good stand mixer but need one a little more budget friendly, I have also included a few to take a look at. But if you can fit it into your budget, one of the five top rated KitchenAid Stand Mixers is a must have! And always remember every good cook needs a stand mixer in their kitchen!
