Runner Up: Best Stand Mixer
KitchenAid is known for the incredible quality and durability of their kitchen products, so you can almost never go wrong with a mixer made by them. The KitchenAid K45SS Classic Mixer is their more budget-oriented mixer with a slightly less powerful motor and a few less features to cut down the cost. Don’t be fooled, you still get an incredibly durable mixer with a 1-year warranty and plenty of additions to serve nearly every home cook’s needs. The 250-Watt motor operates at 10 different speeds, similar to most of their higher-end mixers. This mixer also includes the attachments that the others do. I comes with a flat beater, dough hook and wire whip, and the head tilts up for easy and quick attachment and removal. A 4-1/2-quart mixing bowl is more than most cooks need and can actually hold enough dough for two full loaves of bread. You’ll love how nice this appliance looks sitting on your counter, and you’ll love that you don’t feel like you need to put it away after every use.
Just because this mixer comes with a slightly less powerful motor than some of the more expensive ones, 250-Watts is plenty of power for bread doughs. If you need a bigger mixing bowl or more power for more professional-type cooking needs, you may want to choose one of the mixers with more 400 to 800 Watts of power, but the average home cook and baker will be more than pleased with this appliance.
