Let’s just get one thing straight: KitchenAid is basically the classic Chanel of stand mixers. From the Artisan Series 5-Quart Stand Mixer (which is great for cooks who like to dabble in everything from baking cookies to making homemade pasta) to the KitchenAid 6-Quart Professional Series Stand Mixer (which is a must-have for big-batch baking), the brand is a classic kitchen staple for its design, durability and versatility. Hence why we’re most definitely hopping on its end-of-year sale, where you can score up to $170 off its best-selling mixers until Thursday, December 29. Below, find five KitchenAid deals you don’t want to miss.

After scoring 94 points out of 100 in a PureWow100 review, it makes sense why this mixer has amassed a cult following. It has 10 speeds that allow you to whip up ingredients for any kind of recipe and comes with four attachments—including a flat beater, coated dough hook 6-wire whip and pouring shield—for maximum versatility. “You can bake up to nine dozen cookies (!) at once, the design is undeniably iconic and it’s available in dozens of colors. Plus, the [attachments] allow you to make everything from lasagna noodles to your own freshly ground burger blends,” editor Candace Davison writes in the review. Oh, and did we mention that it comes in 27 ultra-trendy colorways?
Looking to upgrade the 5-quart tilt-head’s attachments? This iteration comes with both 3- and 5-quart bowls, along with an exclusive accessory pack that includes a flex edge beater, pastry beater, dough hook, wire whip and redesigned secure fit pouring shield. “The pastry beater is a must-have—[it’s] so much quicker than using a hand pastry blender. We love the addition of an extra bowl…perfect for whipping up some frosting for a batch of cookies or a cake," one reviewer writes. "The pouring shield helps keep the counters cleaner (always a plus), and the whisk and dough hook are perfect."
If you’re the type who whips up fondant from scratch and volunteers to bake cupcakes, this mixer scored 91 points out of 100 in a PureWow100 review for doing just that. “If you [want] a machine that can keep up with the large-scale projects you tackle—check out the KitchenAid Professional Series,” Davison explains. “This is the style most professional chefs use, and for good reason: It can handle just about anything you throw at it. Plus, you can connect 12+ attachments to the power hub, using the machine to do everything from grind meat to make fresh pasta.”
Here, another add-on option that takes the artisan series 5-quart to the next level. Along with four included accessories, this one comes with a 2-in-1 food pusher and three blades that can slice or shred fresh ingredients for salads, entrees, sides and more. One reviewer raves: “I make pasta and bread. I slice and dice. I spiral veggies. I can’t believe I waited all these years to get [these attachments]! If you are trying to decide—just do it!”
Finally, something that’ll match your kitchen’s polished silver hardware. Basically, the mixer functions just like the 5-quart featured first in this list, only with sleeker accents (aka what the brand calls "enhanced touchpoints"), such as a silver speed control knob, a silver lock knob, matte gray attachments and a brushed stainless steel bowl and trim band.
