Stand Mixer - Where to Find The Best Stand Mixers, Professional, KitchenAid, Sunbeam and More!

Updated on September 1, 2011

Stand Mixers - The Benefits of Stand Mixers

A stand mixer is basically the same as a hand mixer, but it is mounted on a stand which bears the weight of the device.

Stand mixers are much easier to use than hand mixers because the stand mixer does most of the work for you. They work especially well for larger cooking or baking projects.

Stand mixers also have more powerful motors than hand-held mixers do. They come with a special bowl that is locked in place while the mixer is operating so you do not have to hold the bowl with one hand while trying to mix with the other.

Typical home model mixers and light commercial models are equipped with bowls that hold around 4 quarts. Most of the stand mixers also include attachments such as a wire whip for whipping creams and egg whites; a flat beater for mixing batters and even a even a dough hook for kneading which can really save you time and energy.

While there are quite a few stand mixtures to choose from, Kitchenaid is the most often purchased, though Sunbeam and Cuisanart are popular brands as well.

Listed below are some of the most popular Stand Mixers on the market today. Not only will they save you a ton of work, but these mixers also come in wonderful colors to complement your kitchen and look great displayed on a counter top or shelf.
