Stand Mixer

While you can certainly make cakes, cookies, and other delicious treats with a hand mixer a stand mixer makes all recipes easier. You’ll spend less time on preparation and cleanup and more time on baking!

Preparation will help your bake go smoothly and prevent you from running around in a frazzled state trying to complete everything on time.

In this article, I’m going to review the top-rated stand mixers on the market today, and tell you the one I think is best.

Types Of Stand Mixers

There are two main categories of stand mixers: tilt heads and bowl lifts.

A tilt head stand mixer has a tilting head that allows you to place the mixing bowl into position before facing the mixer. On the other hand, a bowl lift stand mixer lowers and raises the mixing bowl with a mechanism attached to the mixer.

What To Consider While Picking A Stand Mixer

  • Capacity

If you make smaller batches or don’t bake very often, a smaller stand mixer will do. However, if you bake larger batches more frequently, you should opt for a mixer with a larger capacity.

  • Size

The size of a stand mixer is important depending on the amount of space you have in your kitchen.

If you live in an apartment or have a smaller kitchen, then you might want to get a smaller stand mixer. In the event you have space on your counters or ample storage, then size might not be a problem to you.

  • Cost

Consider your budget and decide how much you’re willing to spend on a stand mixer. Everyone has a different opinion about what is too expensive, and everyone has a different amount to spend.

  • Noise Levels

Bowl-lift models tend to be more stable, which results in fewer vibrations and less noise.

Review the customer reviews and the features below if you want to know more about how noisy certain mixers are.

  • Speed

Certain stand mixers have a larger number of speed settings, allowing you to precisely control the consistency of your ingredients. These settings range from slow to fast and are suited to different recipes.

Find one that aligns with your needs best.

5 Best Stand Mixers In 2021

Now that you know everything there is to know about stand mixers, let’s discuss the 5 best stand mixers available.

1. KitchenAid KSM7586PFP 7-Quart Pro Line Stand Mixer Frosted Pearl White

This stand mixer has a bowl lift rather than a tilt head. You remove and insert the attachments and bowl by using a handle to move the bowl up or down.

Modern design, a variety of colors and a sleek look make this KitchenAid appliance ideal for any kitchen countertop. It weighs about 32 pounds, so make sure you have a secure place to store it before buying one.

2. Litchi 650W 5.5 Qt. Stand Mixer

This Litchi model is slightly smaller than the KitchenAid we just went over and has a 5.5-quart capacity.

Although it has a smaller capacity than its larger counterpart, this blender is still of decent size and is more compact, making it suitable for those with less space in their kitchen. It also comes with a splash guard to prevent mixture from splattering.

The machine itself is not very stable, according to some owners. Many report that it shakes, vibrates, and even gives off a burning smell sometimes. The powerful motor also makes it quite noisy.

3. Cuisinart SM-50 5.5 – Quart Stand Mixer, White

The Cuisinart SM-50 doesn’t have a tilting head like other models. It however has a faster motor, larger capacity size, and various speed settings compensate for that feature.

This Cuisinart mixer comes with a splash guard, three attachments including a chef’s whisk, flat mixing paddle, and dough hook. It has a handle on the mixing bowl which makes this mixer safe to use.

Though this model has been well-received by many users, some people who have purchased it have reported problems with its durability.

4. Hamilton Beach Eclectrics All-Metal 12-Speed Electric Stand Mixer

This stand mixer is small, compact-sized and well designed.

It yields 400 watts compared to other mixers in the price range that are only 300 watts, and has double the speed options. It is at a similar precision level as top-name brands without the large size of those machines.

People say this product is pretty heavy and bulky. Some people also have issues with the bowl: it’s small, but very deep, which makes stirring ingredients at the bottom difficult.

5. Kenwood KMC011 5 Quart Chef Titanium Kitchen Machine, Stainless Steel

The Kenwood KMC011 is a small, tilt-head machine that breaks the mold for the typical “underpowered” tilt-head mixer.

This little guy has a whopping 750 watts of power that makes mixing thick doughs and tough batters an easier task.

This model comes with three attachments, including a beater attachment that users say is better than standard beaters. All of the model’s tools and bowls are dishwasher safe, which makes maintenance easy and fast.

This machine has a small capacity, which is an issue for some people. But many say that it works faster and smoother than others, making it more convenient than larger models.
