If I didn't already have one (that I love) I would be placing my order for a KitchenAid stand mixer today on Amazon. The trusty -- and pretty -- appliance is almost half off on Amazon today, which is an amazing deal.
Normally, the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-quart Stand Mixer will run you around $430. Today, you can get a mixer for as low as $260, depending on the color you choose. Plus, the mixers qualify for free shipping, so that's an added bonus.
The tilt-head stand mixer has 10 speeds and includes a flat beater, wire whip, and dough hook. And if you really want to go all in, there are additional attachments you can buy like a pasta roller, food grinder, and spiralizer. (It looks like the 3-piece pasta roller and cutter attachment set is on sale today, too; Amazon has it for $121.99 instead of the normal $249.99.) All the mixer attachments work with the power hub on the mixer.
Some of the KitchenAid mixers also come with a pouring shield so that you can add dry ingredients to the stainless steel bowl without having to stop the mixer.
There are over 20 colors to choose from, but not all the prices are the same for each color of the Kitchenaid mixer. Still, there's something for everyone, whether you're looking for a summer splurge or stocking up your Christmas gift closet.
The Empire Red will cost you $279.00, but the cheery pop of color is priceless.
And if you prefer your small appliances to stay in neutral territory, KitchenAid has the Almond Cream version at $297.49.
The five quart stainless steel bowl is big enough to mix dough for nine dozen cookies or four loaves of bread in a single batch, which is perfect for bake sales, block parties, or starting your own small pastry business.
If you're in the market for at least one kitchen appliance, today is a good day to go shopping.
