Which Kitchenaid Mixer is Best For Me? Which Kitchen Aid Mixer Should I Buy?

With spring wrapping up, I often found myself in the kitchen more, and I thought to myself that I could really benefit from owning a stand mixer.

This then led me to ask myself which KitchenAid mixer is best for me?

Naturally, I began compiling a list of the different mixers that are currently offered.

Looking into all the different features a functionality associated with each model.

Furthermore, I knew that I would want all the bells and whistles I could find for my KitchenAid mixer, but this would certainly spike up the price.

That is why I compared not only price and features but the value between each one to help myself make an informed decision and hopefully you as well.

Which KitchenAid Stand Mixer Is Best For Me?

Well to answer this question I put all of my hard work into compiling a list of the top 5 KitchenAid Mixer that I came across.

Top 5 KitchenAid Stand Mixers To Buy

1.) KitchenAid KSM150PSER Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer

KitchenAid KSM150PSER Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
This mixer is one of the most sold mixers, that KitchenAid makes.
For the price of $299 it really does have a ton of features that will get you up and operational in the kitchen pronto! 
  • 5-Qt stainless steel bowl
  • Tilting head for easy access to the bowl
  • 10-speed control
  • Tons of color options 
  • Includes The Starting KitchenAid Mixer Attachments- flat beater, dough hook, 6 wire whip, and a pouring shield 
  • Compatible with 15 attachments
Overall I really like this mixer.
I think it provides a lot of value for the price.
With the 5 Qt mixing bowl, you can make 4 loaves of bread or 9 DOZEN cookies in a single batch! For me, that's tons more capacity than I will ever need.
Although, if you like to host around the holidays and have a big family this could be smaller than you want.
Another thing I noticed that I loved about this machine is that it has a 59 touchpoint mixing rotation.
Which means its gonna mix up your ingredients effectively and efficiently.  
  • Top Selling Model
  • Variety Of Color Options
  • Best Value Buy


  • Not Suited For Industrial Size Cooking Needs
  • Too Big For You Small Batch Bakers
  • Definitely On The Upper End For Price

2.) KitchenAid KSM75SL Classic Plus 4.5 Qt.KitchenAid KSM75SL Classic Plus 4.5 Qt.

At $199 this mixer is probably the most affordable KitchenAid Stand Mixer on the market today.

This option allows you to get into the stand mixer world without having to put holes in your pockets!

  • 4.5 Qt stainless steel bowl
  • Tilting head
  • 10-speed control
  • Soft Start to reduce splash
  • Includes - Flat Beater, dough hook, and 6 wire whip

Although this option is cheaper than some of the other options.

It does have its drawbacks!

First off, it's only offered in the metallic silver shown above. For some, this could be a deal-breaker!

Also, its smaller 4.5 Qt bowl means for bigger events you might have to do multiple batches.

But don't get me wrong it still can do a whopping 3 loaves of bread or 6 pounds of mashed potatoes!

For me that's excessive but to someone who likes to have big dinner parties, it is minuscule. 


  • The Most Affordable Option
  • Has All the Other Great Features


  • Smaller Mixing Bowl
  • No Color Options

3.) KitchenAid KP26M1XNP Professional 600 Series

For big cookers, and party hosts alike this is a must-have!
