Best stand mixer for small spaces
Star rating: 4/5
£283.26£269.89 at Amazon | (save £13.37 or 5%) £449£329 at John Lewis & Partners | (save £120 or 26%)
The Mini is, as you might guess, the smallest stand mixer in KitchenAid's range with a bowl capacity of 3.3 litres, which has a maximum capacity of 1.8kg worth of cake batter. This would make a good choice for someone who is short on space, or is an occasional baker. Unlike other larger models there isn't a handle on the bowl, which on test we found made it difficult to remove it from the mixer. The motor on this model is pretty modest which means that whisking and kneading may take a little longer.
Best basic stand mixer
Star rating: 4/5
£499£371 at Amazon | (save £128 or 26%) £449£399 at Lakeland | (save £50 or 11%) £449£399 at Currys | (save £50 or 11%) £499£449.95 at Harts of Stur | (save £49.05 or 10%)
The KitchenAid Classic has a 4.3-litre bowl and is a step up from the Mini, with a higher motor power of 275W. It comes with all the same attachments as its counterpart the Artisan, and the primary difference is that this model is only available in black and white. The wattage means that, much like the Mini, this model struggles a bit with thicker mixes and on test we found the buns we made were a little tough as a result. If you're an occasional baker looking for a mixer which does the basics well but doesn't have lots of bells and whistles, this could be a good option.

KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM125
Best stand mixer for stylish kitchens
Star rating: 4.5/5
£549£349 at Harts of Stur | (save £200 or 36%) £399£359 at Amazon | (save £40 or 10%) £449£399 at John Lewis & Partners | (save £50 or 11%)
This might be KitchenAid's most well-known stand mixer which is often featured as a baking essential, like on The Great British Bake Off. This model is available in red, black, silver and cream which is KitchenAid's core colour range. A good option if you want to match your mixer to other appliances in your kitchen, and if you want a sturdy, reliable mixer which is both mid-range in size and price.
KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM175
£599£448.95 at Harts of Stur | (save £150.05 or 25%) £599£439 at Amazon | (save £160 or 26%) £599£499 at John Lewis & Partners | (save £100 or 16%)
The engineering of this machine is the same as the other Artisan models, with a differing product code indicating a change in the colours and accessories available for this range. This model comes in the largest available set of colours with 13 to choose from, so if you're looking for a mixer to stand out from the crowd, this could be the one. It also comes with an additional three-litre bowl and splash guard which works well when adding icing sugar or flour to the mixer.
KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM180 - Shadow and Light
£699£629 at Harts of Stur | (save £70 or 10%)
The Artisan 5KSM180 is KitchenAid's limited edition colourway which usually comes with a unique mixing bowl. This model available from Harts of Stur is the 2022 Light and Shadow model with a studded black ceramic bowl.
KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM185
£699£519.95 at Harts of Stur | (save £179.05 or 25%) £699£559 at John Lewis & Partners | (save £140 or 20%)
This model has the same design and motor as other Artisan models so will be able to handle most baking requirements with ease. It is available in seven colours and comes with an additional three-litre bowl and splash guard as well as the stainless steel dough hook, flat beater and wire balloon whisk.
KitchenAid Bowl-Lift Artisan 5KSM7580
£749£649 at John Lewis & Partners | (save £100 or 13%)
The Bowl-Lift range is the larger model available from KitchenAid, where the main bowl sits on pins on two extending arms and you lift it off rather than twisting. This model has a 500W motor and comes with a 6.9l bowl, perfect if you're regularly baking for a crowd. Taller than the traditional tilt-head stand mixer models, this mixer won't fit under most kitchen cupboards and would need a dedicated space in your kitchen. This model comes in five colours.
KitchenAid Bowl-Lift Heavy Duty 5KSM7591
£729.99£539.99 at Nisbets | (save £109 or 26%)
This mixer has a powerful 500W motor, fit to deal with large quantities of heavy mixes from bread doughs to biscuits. It comes with a 6.9-litre stainless steel bowl, plus nylon-coated dough hook and flat beater, wire whisk and pouring shield. It's a tall machine so would be unlikely to fit under traditional kitchen cupboards.
KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker
£149£89 at Argos | (save £60 or 40%) £149£96.85 at Lakeland | (save £52.15 or 35%) £149£104.95 at Harts of Stur | (save £44.05 or 29%)
This ice cream maker is compatible with all tilt head models of the KitchenAid mixers except the Mini. It comes with a 1.9 litre bowl, drive assembly and dasher which together turn your stand mixer into an ice cream maker. Start by storing the bowl in the freezer for at least 16 hours, then use the dasher to churn your ice cream as it freezes.
Best blow-out spiralizer
This attachment has two blades for noodles and two for ribbon slices. A spiked pad holds the veg securely and, with the slide of a switch, the mixer’s motor drives the blade towards the veg for effortless spiralizing.
KitchenAid Pasta Cutters and Roller
Best pasta maker attachments
These attachments allow you to roll and cut homemade pasta for a professional finish. Use a low speed to feed the dough through the roller automatically, which leaves your hands free to control the pasta. On test we found these attachments produced beautifully sleek pasta strands.
Roughly the same size and with the iconic tilt-head design, the KitchenAid Classic and KitchenAid Artisan are in many ways fairly similar. If choosing between the two, there are a few keys differences to consider depending on what you're looking for in your stand mixer.
Capacity: the KitchenAid Classic has a slightly smaller bowl capacity of 4.3 litres, while the Artisan holds 4.8 litres (except for limited edition models which come with a 4.7 litre bowl). This means with the Artisan model you have slightly more room to play with, but honestly the difference is negligible and is roughly the equivalence of one small egg white if making meringues.
Price: the KitchenAid Classic and the standard KitchenAid Artisan model 5KSM125 will both set you back £449, although there are, of course, deals right now to bring this price down. However, if you'd like a greater choice of colours, accessories or personalisation the price of the Artisan model increases from £449 to £799 to the priciest option (the limited edition Blossom colour with hammered bowl).
Colour: KitchenAid mixers are known for their bright colours, and if this is what you're after the Artisan model is certainly the way to go with the widest choice of hues available. The Classic model comes in a choice of white or back with a matte or shiny finish.
KitchenAid is one of the most recognisable names in the world of stand mixers, with a range of other products also available in its range of bright colours. While it's fairly unusual for new models of the stand mixers to be released, there are new colours and accessories to keep an eye out for, some of which are limited edition so will be unlikely to be available in sales.
When looking for a good deal it's important to think about what you're looking for in your stand mixer. Questions like how many people you'll be baking for and how versatile you need you're mixer to be are important to ask yourself before you start looking for deals. It's also important to note that you'll sometimes find deals on unusual colours or bowls where retailers are trying to clear stock. If you're less concerned with the way your stand mixer looks, or are after something different to stand out in your kitchen, this can be a great way to make a saving.
Our expert reviews team spend their time rigorously testing and reviewing appliances to make sure you know which one is right for you. This combined with years of working the biggest annual sales events means that we are dab hands at cutting through the noise to spot a good deal.
We always recommend shopping at trusted retailers to make sure that you're getting the product which you've purchased. Remember that if you spot a deal that seems too good to be true, chances are it probably is.
In our deals pages you'll always find the price saving and the percentage saving listed. It's important to look at both of these when you're keeping an eye out for deals. Retailers often list one or the other which can make the deal seem better than it is. For example a saving of £100 seems like a lot, but on an £1,000 product this is only a saving of 10 per cent.
