Stand mixers are a sturdy and reliable way to streamline kitchen projects that either can't or shouldn't be done by hand, and KitchenAid is the industry standard. As a professional chef, every kitchen I've ever worked in has relied on them as an integral tool in both sweet and savory operations. I love mine because it's strong enough to handle a large batch of sticky pizza dough, yet delicate enough to whip sweet meringue to perfect stiff peaks. The simple design relies on minimal buttons and the built-in lift-and-lock system keeps the stainless steel bowl stable at any speed. I love that I don't have to hold the bowl while I whip fresh cream, and I take full advantage of the fact that I can walk away and leave the mixer running while I tidy up.

Though they're professional-grade, these mixers are totally approachable for any skill level. The stainless steel bowl can hold up to 5 quarts and is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. It comes equipped with a flat beater, spiral dough hook, and wire whisk to tackle a variety of projects, so whether you're a Bake Off fanatic or dabbling in your first batch of cookies, this machine is designed with the home cook in mind. This model features 10 speeds and is compatible with 10 handy attachments (all sold separately) that make advanced tasks like grinding meat and making ice cream accessible at home.
