There are plenty of KitchenAid items on sale right now, but these are the deals you definitely don't want to miss.
This KitchenAid Artisan Mini Stand Mixer is ready to help you power through your baking projects. Its 3.5 quart stainless steel bowl is big enough to conjure five dozen cookies' worth of dough in one go. The tilt-head design allows you to easily add ingredients without removing the bowl while you can flip between 10 speeds to get your consistency just right. The Mini Stand's a nice visual addition to your kitchen, too, in stainless steel, black matte and empire red.
"This Mini is perfect for everything that doesn't need the capacity of my full-size KitchenAid," a five-star fan said. "It's great for beating eggs, whipping cream, etc., but it's also ideal for making small-batch cookie dough, dinner rolls, single loaves of yeast bread, crumble toppings, and on and on . . .! Plus, she's pretty!"
Those homemade meatballs and sausages aren't going to prep themselves, you know, especially if you want to be fully legit and make them from scratch. That's where this KitchenAid Metal Food Grinder Attachment comes in. It's beyond easy to use: Just choose whether you want a fine, medium or coarse grind, secure it onto the front of your mixer, and let it go to work. It even comes with a large food tray hold the family-size portions you'll be churning out.
"By far the best KitchenAid meat grinder I have used," a happy customer said. "I ground over 10 pounds of deer meat and pork fat with this with absolutely no problems whatsoever. The build quality is fantastic."
This KitchenAid 5 Cup Food Chopper can,well, chop, mix and puree a wide range of foods in a jiffy thanks to it sharp stainless steel blade. But it's no brute: It'll even whisk, whip and stir things for you, allowing you to do even delicate blends like whipped cream. A nice perk: There's a drizzle basin to let you add liquid while you're chopping. Once you're done, the bowls, blade and accessories can go in the dishwasher.
"Best gadget ever!" a satisfied customer said. "My old Cuisinart four-cup mini processor died, so I ordered this thinking five cups would be handier than four cup capacity. So true! I can think of many ways I can use this one vs. the previous, just with that extra cup. I have only used the blade attachment, but it is sharp! ... The unit is surprisingly quiet, and the dishwasher cleans everything nicely."
Frozen fruits, ice and raw veggies are no match for this KitchenAid Variable Speed Blender. It uses a three-part blending system to create a powerful vortex that'll suck up and break down your ingredients just the way you want. Flip through 10 different speeds or pick from three presets — ice crush, icy drink or smoothie. There's also a "Soft Start" feature to slowly ramp up the speed as needed.
"Measures up to Vitamix!" a happy reviewer said. " I’ve had a Vitamix for over 10 years and I love it! Well, what I don’t like about it is the container. I wish it was glass, and that’s what I love about this blender. It also has a nicer retro type of style that I really like. Like the Vitamix, it has variable speeds so you can customize the blending to whatever you need."
