Cherry red and absolutely amazing

This mixer tops the list because it’s the one that I have and I love it. It’s got 10 speeds, comes with multiple attachments, and has the option to add any of over 15 other attachments. It’s incredibly versatile and very heavy-duty: this baby can mix anything. KitchenAid is one of the most trusted brands of the mixer, and there’s a reason. Their products are incredibly solid and just keep on keeping on.

Pretty in Pink

Aucma’s entry to this list is a less expensive mixer that comes in seven bright colors. It also comes with a splash guard so that when you’re really going for it you don’t end up with ingredients all over the place. You can even drop the accessories into the dishwasher, which is a major plus in my opinion. Check the review: “I am beyond pleased with this model. My Aucma handles all my mixing needs. It is light weight…but not wimpy. My husband was impressed with the splash guard. It is easy to assemble and disassemble. The parts clean easily. The turn dial lights up so I know right away when I forget to plug it in (every time!).”

A great budget option

Finding a quality stand mixer for less than $100 might seem like an impossible task, but we did it. This baby from Hamilton Beach hits every part of the bowl for effective mixing every time. It can handle thick ingredients without slowing down. It’s light enough to move if you need to, but has suction cups to hold it in place while it’s working. Even at a lower price point, this mixer is a solid choice that can handle all your basic recipes.

The reviews love it.

“I was looking at the KitchenAid mixers for the longest time but then stumbled upon these killer dupe mixers. After comparing technical specs, the cost savings were a no brainer. Been using it for 2 months, multiple times per week, and it’s flawless! Do not hesitate on this purchase. It’s GREAT quality, powerful mixer, does not overheat on challenging mixes, and has a shield so you don’t get hit with flour bombs while mixing. A++++” I’m sold.

Feel the power

If you want a mixer that is heavy-duty and can manage anything, this Cuisinart is a great choice. It’s die-cast metal, so you know that base isn’t going anywhere. It has a full twelve speeds to meet meet any mixing need you’ve got. It has plenty of attachments you can add to do everything from pasta making to meat grinding. This mixer is a beast.

Three in one!

I have to say that the picture of this mixer looks a bit goofy, but the function? Oh it’s fantastic. You get a solid stand mixer at the base with six speeds and plenty of space for all your mixing needs. On top of that you also have a juicer/blender for smoothies and shakes (so delicious). To round it out you get a meat grinder. There’s no need for tons of attachments because you already have everything you could need.

The big one

Most stand mixers hold about 6 quarts (or less), so it’s pretty exciting to find one that has more capacity. This option gives you 7.5 quarts in the bowl so you can mix big recipes (I must do a double batch every time I make cookies. It’s the law). Even with that larger size it still doesn’t break the budget, coming in at just over $100. It’s quiet, powerful, and has great speed.

This IS your mama’s mixer

If you grew up baking, or watching a parent bake, chances are you saw a stand mixer that looks a lot like this one. This is KitchenAid’s classic model, and it’s great for the home baker. It’s a bit smaller than their professional lines, and not quite as heavy. But it still comes with the KitchenAid quality, which is basically unbeatable.

Easy to use and great results

“The Vivohome stand mixer is a great appliance addition to our kitchen. The tilt head is easy to use and makes it easy to remove the bowl and mixing attachment for easy cleaning. The splatter attachment also removes for easy cleaning. Six speeds allow for mixing various batters and doughs. Have used it to mix cake batter, cream pufff batter, whipped topping and bread dough. The red mixer has a low profile and looks great on my kitchen counter under an upper cabinet. The color is awesome and is a great accent piece in white kitchen.” I can’t deny that the red looks truly gorgeous.

Low cost and high quality

Last but not least we have the lowest price point of any of the mixers on this list. Coming in at just around $80 (depending on color), this Kuppet option gives you a lot of bang for your buck. “As I’m a cake decorator, I’ve tried a variety of stand mixers, including major brands and expensive stuff. Among these, I would recommend this product. Strong power, light weight, durable, inexpensive compared to other brands, and great design is plus. I’m happy with my purchase. If you don’t know what to buy a good mixer, or you just step in looking at mixer products, but no clue which one is good fit, you might try this mixer as first step It won’t let you down.”
