This is one of the largest and most powerful mixers on the market today. However, its performance paled a bit next to the smaller models in the KitchenAid family. Nevertheless, it’s still a top performer in the tests and worth it for anyone considering baking in large quantities.

This mixer is perfect for small spaces and kitchens as it’s 25% lighter and takes up to 20% less counter space than the classic but doesn’t compromise performance. From whipping egg whites to plowing heavy oatmeal raisin cookie dough, it’s proved to be a very well-performing kitchen appliance. It features a 3 ½ quart bowl with a beater, whisks, and dough hook attachment.

Why Is it Worth It?
– Smaller footprint
– Guarantees great performance

5. Cuisinart’s SM-50TQ Stand Mixer

This mixer features 12-speed settings that are easy to select with just a turn of a dial. The bowl attaches to the base easily as well as the attachments to the head of the mixer. Additional attachments can be bought separately (pasta roller and cutter, spiralizer, ice cream maker). Because these attachments are not coming with the package, the initial price is rather affordable, and upgrading later is a great idea.

Why Is it Worth It?
– Great price/performance
– Useful attachments
