KitchenAid Mixers

KitchenAid Stand Mixers are the "Yardstick" by which all home appliance purchases should be measured! The KitchenAid Tilt-Head Models (5 qt Artisan Series and 4.5 qt Classic Series) are the most popular, while the larger capacity KitchenAid Bowl-Lift Models (6qt Professional 600 Series and 7qt Pro Line), are better suited for large batches and dense mixtures. As a purchase for yourself, or given as a gift it is literally impossible to go wrong by choosing any KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

Our Opinion
The KitchenAid Artisan® Series 5 Qt Stand Mixers are by far the most popular choice. The 5 quart capacity is perfect for home bakers, and the front power hub fits optional attachments from food grinders to pasta makers and many more. Choose from 30+ colors. This model earns our "A+" grade for it's diverse range of color choices!
The KitchenAid Classic Series is the traditional mixer everyone remembers from their mother and grandmother's kitchen. Despite the smaller bowl it is still an incredibly popular stand mixer. The Classic only earns our "B" grade as you are limited to only 2 color choices (black and white).
The KitchenAid Professional 600™Series 6-Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer is perfect for heavy and dense mixtures. The front power hub fits optional attachments from food grinders to pasta makers and many more. We really appreciate the larger mixing bowl and pouring shield which is why it also rates an A+ grade. Choose from 10+ colors.
The KitchenAid Pro Line® Series 7-Qt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer is billed as the largest capacity "Residential / Consumer" stand mixer! The front power hub fits optional attachments from food grinders to pasta makers and many more. Choose from 4 colors. Many serious home bakers swear by this model as double batches and dense mixtures are not a problem! This model earns our "A" grade!
