It's not every day that the KitchenAid 5-quart Glass Bowl Stand Mixer goes on sale, so we'll cut to the chase. The mighty machine that can make everything from fluffy homemade butter to tasty pizza dough is $80 off at QVC today *and today only*. This means you can finally get your hands on it for $380 (from $460)—the lowest we've ever seen, guys—so naturally, more than 1,000 shoppers have already purchased theirs. Us included.

Still, spending close to $400 requires some careful consideration, even when you only have a day to consider taking the plunge. So what makes it worth the splurge, beyond its chic looks and versatility? Our food editors swear by KitchenAid mixers for their durability—after 11 years of weekly use, our VP of editorial's mixer is still in tip-top shape—but what really sets this model apart is its 5-quart microwave- and dishwasher-safe glass bowl. It's easy to clean, has measurements on the side for easy pouring, and you can easily see your batters and doughs from all angles to gauge how it's mixing and adjust accordingly. The bowl alone sells for $80 at KitchenAid, so you can do the math to make it make sense. And since it tackles whipping, mixing and kneading at ten different speeds (so you always get the food consistency and texture you want), we count it a worthwhile investment.

And we're not the only one. Here's why one buyer prefers it over KitchenAid's popular stainless steel option (also on sale for $400 at QVC): "It is much prettier than the metal one, and since I keep my mixer on my countertop, that matters to me. It has held up beautifully over nearly a decade of near constant use, so I'm very happy!"

Its capacity is also impressive—this baby can whip up nine dozen cookies, four loaves of bread or seven pounds of mashed potatoes in a single batch, and we love how you can use the tilt-head design, which literally tilts back so you can swap attachments as needed. And it's not just for baking: You can buy separate attachments to grind meat or make your own pasta from scratch, taking your cooking to the next level.

Even if you don't buy any attachments, it'll come in handy more often than you think (like as soon as Easter if you're on baking duty). Just keep in mind that the price goes up to $391 tomorrow on March 30, so you know what to do.
