If you were charged with identifying a product category more thoroughly dominated by a singular product than KitchenAid’s grip on the stand mixer market, you would be screwed. Its absurdly sturdy mixer is recommended by the likes of Wirecutter, Good Housekeeping, Spruce Eats and virtually anyone else that’s spent time with stand mixers.
For one, it doesn’t mess around with weight, a sign that a company knows what it’s doing in the world of stand mixers. The weight of the mixer dictates how much it will wobble and shake when running on higher settings, and KitchenAid’s heft allows it to stay put. Its weight also means it’s meant to stay on the counter in between uses as well, so keep square-footage in mind before purchasing. Weight, then, is a determining factor in the machine’s power output as well, as a mixer with loads of power and no weight will just fall over. Thus, KitchenAid’s Artisan stand mixer has no issues kneading bread dough or making extra thick cookie batter.
Today, the matte black color of the best mixer money can buy is $100 off at Sierra Trading Post, a deal usually reserved for marketing holidays and other such things.
