Before you go all in on the best Black Friday KitchenAid mixer deals, you’ve got some comparison shopping to do. While each model comes with a flat beater, a dough hook, and a wire whip attachment, you’ll still need to ask yourself a few more questions—like do you want the Classic, Artisan, or Professional model? Do you care more about its size or its aesthetic? Are you a big batch baker, or is it more of a cookies-for-one situation?
Wherever you end up, the KitchenAid Black Friday deals are solid this year. Across many retailers including Amazon and Target, KitchenAid mixers are on sale at discounts of up to 44% off, making now the best time to buy one. Read on—and if you’re still undecided on which appliance to take home with you, check out our thorough run down of the best stand mixers. And if you’re looking for other great steals on kitchen appliances and tools, look no further than our ultimate list of Black Friday kitchen deals.
If you have a small kitchen or regularly bake in small batches, the KitchenAid Artisan Mini is the stand mixer for you. It’s the lightest and smallest of the line but just as powerful as the brand’s classic stand mixer. Equipped with a 3.5-quart stainless steel mixing bowl, this mighty appliance can still mix up five dozen cookies in a single batch. You’ll appreciate its tilt-head design, which allows you to easily add ingredients to the bowl and then lock the head in place while mixing.
KitchenAid’s most popular mixers are part of the Classic Series. With a 4.5-quart capacity, they’re the perfect size for almost any recipe—from marshmallows to buttercream to kneaded bread—and can mix up to eight dozen cookies at a time. And like the Artisan Mini, this one is also made with a functional tilt-head design. Often referred to as the standard KitchenAid stand mixer, it’s a solid option for both beginners and professionals alike.
KitchenAid Artisan stand mixers are similar to the brand’s Classic Series stand mixers, but with a few upgrades, including a 5-quart capacity that can mix up to nine dozen cookies at once and a powerful 325-watt motor, as opposed to the Classic’s 250-watt motor. The artisan mixers also come in more colors (check out the textured dark green colorway, a limited edition collaboration with Magnolia’s Hearth & Hand line at Target) and with both stainless steel and glass bowls.
Meet the mixers with all the bells and whistles: the KitchenAid Professional Series. Unlike the brand’s other stand mixers, Professional Series mixers utilize a bowl-lift design instead of a tilt-head design and come with larger bowl capacities ranging from 5 quarts to 8 quarts. These mixers also have ultra-powerful motors, ranging from 525 watts in the Series 5 motors to 575 watts in the Series 6.
