What We Like

  • This mixer is extremely easy to use and does not require a large learning curve.
  • Made with rounded surfaces, this mixer is easy to clean. Once you are done, just a wipe of a cloth around the outside will usually do the trick.
  • Kitchenaid MixerSince this is a self-standing mixer, it allows for hands-free work, offering more preparation options.
  • The 4.5-quart size is enough to handle most menu needs.

What We Don’t Like

  • While we understand that size is necessary to have capacity, this is a pretty large mixer. If you don’t have a lot of counter space, you may feel cramped.
  • This particular mixer has limited power. This is all right for the periodic user, but if you are one of those folks who are always creating something in the kitchen, you may want something with more oomph.

  1. This is the “huge honkin’ stand mixer” I was talking about in another comment I left. Love it, love the look of it, but it is huge…and I have a teeny, tiny 40’s kitchen.
