Factors to consider when choosing a KitchenAid stand mixer

KitchenAid mixers are well-known for their high quality and functionality. Explore the differences between various mixer models so you can choose the right one for your cooking needs.

Series

  • Artisan: The Artisan series is the more advanced of the brand's options, offering greater power and convenient features such as a handle on the mixing bowl for the 5 qt. model. This is the ideal option if you usually make large quantities of doughs and other foods.
  • Classic: KitchenAid Classic mixers offer high quality with less power for casual home bakers.

Features

  • Capacity: KitchenAid's mixer bowl capacities are measured in quarts. The smallest size, the 3.5 qt. bowl, is best for occasional bakers who make single batches of cookies and other smaller recipes.
  • Attachments: Most KitchenAid mixers come with beater, dough hook and wire whip attachments, though larger or more advanced models may include additional accessories, such as pouring shields. Frequent bakers may appreciate these extra attachments.
  • Color: Though not the most important feature, KitchenAid stand mixers are often available in a variety of colors that can appeal to your design sensibilities. This makes it easy to choose something that pairs well with your kitchen decor and appliances.
