KitchenAid Professional 5-Quart Stand Mixer

Long a staple of wedding registries, wish lists and first home fantasies, the iconic KitchenAid mixer — you know the one — is seriously on sale at Target right now.

The KitchenAid Pro 5 Stand Mixer is about $180 off, bringing the price down to $249.99 instead of $429.99. It makes a great gift for a special someone or, let’s be honest, for yourself. After all, the whirlwind baking season that is December is currently underway, and this machine will take care of your cookie batter blending and pie crust mixing so your hands are free to keep going with the dinner prep checklist.

You can choose from standout colors Ice Blue, glossy black, matte black or silver — there’s something for every kitchen aesthetic. Thanks to its ability to handle heavy-duty tasks, you don’t have to worry about the motor overheating when you’re making a double batch of holiday treats. In fact, it’ll handle batches of up to nine dozen in one go, so consider your batch baking covered. Plus, its 10 speeds will handle any other task it’s handed too.

If you’re gifting this to someone else, you can consider some gifts ticked off the list for a while to come: The 10-plus collection of KitchenAid attachments also make excellent presents for any occasion. This model comes equipped with the spiral dough hook, coated flat beater and wire whip — as well as the 5-quart bowl, of course — to get the lucky recipient started.

We’re not the only ones who love this machine either: KitchenAid appliances have a reputation for quality too, so this is one gift that’ll last and last through many holiday baking seasons to come. Shop it now a before it sells out.
