While it’s not the lowest price we’ve ever seen on it (it briefly dropped to $179.58 last December), it’s still a great discount on this top-rated pick.We’ve tried out both the KitchenAid 5-Quart Artisan model (on sale for $299.99) and the upgraded KitchenAid Professional 600 Series mixer ($499.99), with the former earning the title as our all-time favorite stand mixer—even after multiple rounds of testing—for its durable, reliable build and quiet motor. The main differences between the Pro on sale here and our favorite model? A higher wattage (450 for the Pro versus 325) and a bowl-lift design instead of the typical tilt-and-lock base. You’ll get three attachments with your purchase: a metal wire whip and a nylon-coated flat beater and dough hook, all of which we found easy to put on, remove and clean. The bowl itself is dishwasher-safe, and the metal construction is designed to last for the long-haul. In fact, it has a near-perfect rating from more than 10,000 Best Buy shoppers, who were absolutely tickled with their purchase. Need help finding products? Sign up for our weekly newsletter.
