Best Mixers and Blenders

Whenever I recommend a product, I always like to start with what I use.

But I also like to give people a range of prices too. But with ANYTHING I recommend from Amazon, I always use the following criteria:

  • It has to be a minimum of 4 stars
  • The product has to have at least 100 reviews (or be something I own)
  • No more than 5% of all the reviews are bad ones

I find that only recommending products that meet the test of that means that you get great products every time.  Whenever possible, I also like to recommend Prime products or at least products with free shipping.

Let’s dive in!

1. Best Mixers

I did not set out to only recommend KitchenAid products here, but in looking at the top sellers on Amazon, knowing that we only use KitchenAid mixers in my house, and reading and comparing reviews, in my opinion, KitchenAid is the clear winner in all categories.

TOP OF THE LINE STAND MIXER – KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer

Click HERE to check the latest prices on Amazon

  • Almost 10,000 near-perfect reviews
  • Free shipping
  • 34 colors to choose from
  • Made in the USA
  • 5-Qt. stainless steel bowl with handle
  • Attachments – comes with a coated flat beater, coated dough hook, 6-wire whip, and a 1-piece pouring shield. (others available)
  • 10-speed slide control – ranges from a very fast whip to a very slow stir

VALUE STAND MIXER – KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer

Click HERE to check the latest prices on Amazon Prime

  • Over 1,000 near-perfect reviews
  • Comes in White or Black only
  • Free Prime Shipping
  • 4.5-Qt. Stainless Steel Bowl (without handle)
  • 10 Mixing Speeds with soft start
  • Attachments – comes with a coated flat beater, coated dough hook and 6-wire whip (15 others available)

So what’s the difference between the KitchenAid Classic and KitchenAid Artisan?

The primary difference is with the Artisan series, you get the larger bowl with a handle and multiple color options.

While I love the color choices and slightly larger bowl, for me personally, I’d go with the cheaper Classic KitchenAid. After all, the price difference between the 2 is over $100.

But if you do a ton of baking, or have a larger family and need that bigger bowl, the Artisan series might be the way to go.
