It’s officially baking season, and if you, like me, resisted buying a mixer for half a decade because “a spoon is just fine” — well, let me tell you, it’s a life changer that (go figure) actually does save a ton of time, even if you miss the bicep workout. I haven’t looked back once.
If you’ve been thinking about getting a famed KitchenAid stand mixer (our pick for best stand mixer) or upgrading your current stand mixer, there’s no better time to pick one up than Black Friday. There are a plethora of fantastic discounts going on now that can save you hundreds of dollars (this is no shopping article hyperbole either).
And don’t think you have to spend a ton: Despite what Instagram leads us to believe, the top-of-the-line KitchenAids aren’t the only stand mixers out there — and you don’t have to spend a ton on one. Although those aspirational Pros are currently about $210 off, taking them down to around $220, we’re happy to report there are a ton of great discounts on other stand mixers that perform well and look great doing it too. We’ve even spotted some for as low as $50.
We’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the best discounts on stand mixers we’re seeing right now. Read on and shop them below.
