Take a bow, KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer COTY Hibiscus! With plenty of power and great style comes KitchenAid’s most on-trend stand mixer.

What Is A Stand Mixer Used For?

Not just for mixing every cake, cookie and doughnut batter under the sun, stand mixers save time and effort on day-to-day food prep.

“Stand mixers not only make easy work of heavy batters, but can also be utilised for weeknight dinner prep and everyday mixing jobs,” says Tracey Ellis, The Good Guys Buyer – Portable Appliances. 

With variable mixing speeds, stand mixers are fit for making any crowd favourites – think mashed potatoes, meatballs, shredded chicken tacos, or Friday night pizzas.

Or, add those nifty attachments and make supermarket staples at home.

“Attachments like the pasta roller, pastry beater, food grinder, ice shaver and ice cream maker are great for creative home chefs looking to add homemade flair,” says Tracey.

What Are The Best Stand Mixer Brands?

Bless your benchtop with a top-selling mixer from a trusted brand such as KitchenAid, Kenwood or Breville.

Got style in your sights? From pastel pink to matte black, KitchenAid mixers match any kitchen aesthetic and deliver best-in-class functionality too. No wonder so many keen home cooks (and our customers) crave an iconic KitchenAid stand mixer for their benchtop.

“I’ve wanted a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer for so long! When I saw the fabulous Hibiscus colour, I had to make it mine – it’s everything I’d hoped for,” says Sue.

Kenwood’s gone smart with an in-built weighing system that can give you an accurate measure as you add milk to icing mixes. Meanwhile, their cutting-edge planetary mixing feature replicates hand mixing, so you can crack on with lining those cupcake trays instead.

After a really smooth operator? Quality Breville stand mixers feature double-sided scraper beaters for lump-free mixes, along with transparent splash guards to minimise mess.

Top Features To Look For In A Stand Mixer

From slow kneading to fast whipping, look for a speed range to do it all.

“Choose a stand mixer with up to 10 speed settings for ultimate control, and look for dedicated folding functions that’ll perfect your chocolate mousse,” says Tracey.

And keep an eye out for models with bowls that make life (and clean-ups) easier, such as conical bowls that complement flex-edge beaters to save you scraping the sides. Dishwasher safe parts are a must too!

How do I choose a stand mixer?

Food prepping for the family? Choose a sizeable stand mixer with over 6L bowl capacity and up to 1200W of power to breeze through bulk batches and bake sale prep.

For the kitchen creative making bread and butter from scratch, favour stand mixers with the capacity for extra attachments and accessories. Want to make a style statement? Choose a patterned or textured KitchenAid bowl for extra flair.
