STAND MIXERS is the delegated gem of a kitchen. They make effective work of assignments that commonly take a ton of time or effort to do by hand, such as whipping egg whites to delicate or solid pinnacles, transforming cream into whipped cream, producing huge clumps of treats, and massaging extreme, hefty bread mixtures. Unlike hand mixers, stand mixers free you to do different errands while they accomplish the work.
Here at Kitchenista we assess stand mixers for how well they blend cake batter and treat mixture, ply bread batter, and whip cream and egg whites. We additionally take a gander at convenience, checking the exhaustiveness of the proprietor’s manual, how you amass the mixers and blending bowl, how straightforward controls are to work and, obviously, how simple every blender is to clean.
The KitchenAid stand blender is presumably the first to ring a bell, and keeping in mind that it’s the greatest name in the business, it’s positively not alone. Indeed, even inside the KitchenAid brand, there are a couple of various models, so picking one can be befuddling. Which one is best for you?
Here is our top pick:
BEST OVERALL STAND MIXER
The Artisan with a 5-quart bowl is the biggest and generally incredible of the slant head mixers offered by KitchenAid, and it’s additionally the organization’s most mainstream model. With its capacity to deal with batter for 9-dozen treats or 4 portions of bread, or 7 pounds of potatoes, it has enough force for pretty much any kitchen.
Like all KitchenAid stand mixers, it has 10 speeds and a center for connecting any of the optional accessories like a slicer/shredder and a ravioli creator, making it exceptionally flexible. The stainless-steel bowl has a handle, and the flat beater and dough hook are covered with nylon and are dishwasher-safe.

BEST VALUE STAND MIXER
On the 4-quart bowl, there are handles on one or the other side. The wire whisk, flat beater, and dough hook are all dishwasher-safe. At the point when you’re finished blending, you’ll think that it’s not very weighty and has an idea about top so it’s exceptionally helpful to move around or bury. While it just has seven speeds (versus the KitchenAid’s 10), that ought to be a lot for most blender undertakings, from mixing in raisins to preparing a pavlova. You have five color choices: black, metallic black, red, silver, and light blue.
- So, it might offer some consumers access to the mixer market that would otherwise be less than willing to spend the money to get a quality machine.
- Limited power
- Dubious durability
BEST LARGE STAND MIXER
The KitchenAid Bowl Lift Professional 600 Series Stand Mixer is one of the biggest and most impressive mixers available, yet its performance withered somewhat close to the more modest (and more moderate) models in the KitchenAid blender family. It was as yet a top performer in our test, however, and certainly worth considering if you bake in large quantities.

- The KitchenAid Professional 600 has a huge edge accordingly space-devouring.
- Limited portability because of its weight

BEST SMALL STAND MIXER
Estimating a little more than 11 inches wide and gauging 17 pounds, the Mini is about 25% more modest than our best overall pick. While this may not appear to be an extreme contrast in size, the Mini is significantly more flexibility than some other stand blender we’ve used, and I love that it fits effectively under cabinets or on a shelf. Less surface area also means less to clean, and the Mini’s work bowl doesn’t hog space in my sink or dishwasher.

BEST MULTI-PURPOSE STAND MIXER
This stand blender can handle all your necessities from folding to making substantial mixture bread. It highlights 12 speed settings that are not difficult to choose with the turn of a dial. The most minimal setting is exceptionally delicate, while the most noteworthy is useful for putting the final touches on a whipped cream. The bowl attaches to the base effectively, as do the attachments to the top of the blender.
Several attachments can be purchased independently for this stand blender, a pasta roller and cutter, spiralizer, and ice cream maker, which is our favorite. We particularly like using ice cream attachments on stand mixers because you can increase the speed to make a fluffier ice cream.
