Kitchen Stand Mixer Review

Disclaimer ~ This Kitchen Stand Mixer Review is a non-biased comparison by the team over at Each stand mixer has been hand-tested over the course of a week by the team, making different batches of dough from breads to cookie doughs with each stand mixer, while gathering data and putting each stand mixer to the test.

I’m sharing these articles with you so you will be able to make an informed decision when it comes time for you to purchase a kitchen stand mixer.

If there’s one kitchen appliance I can’t live without, it would have to be my KitchenAid Stand Mixer!

I use it when I make bread, pizza dough, cookie dough, meringue, pancake and waffle mix, scones, biscuits, and more.

Let’s just say, I use it a lot!

This is the only stand mixer I’ve ever owned and ever used, so I might be a little biased when it comes to other brands.

I have the KitchenAid 550 HD 5.5-quart bowl-lift stand mixer. This baby is a Beast in the kitchen and I absolutely love it!

I bought mine at Christmas when it was on sale. I love Christmas sales and some of my best buys are always around the Holidays!

And even though the Holidays are behind us, you can still shop around to find the best buy for your money.

Actually, this is the best time to research an item you want to buy and see if it fits the way you’re going to put it to use.

The team over at has already done all the legwork for you.

An interesting fact I found in the article was that KitchenAid attachments are not dishwasher safe!

The reason I’m probably the last person to know this is because I do not have a dishwasher, so everything gets washed by hand.

Unlike the reviewer, I have no problem washing any of the attachments because they’re so easy to clean.

Therefore, I believe dishwasher safe attachments are more of a personal preference for ease of cleaning than the qualities of the stand mixer itself.

However, cleaning up is a big factor to look at any time you’re in the kitchen and Boyle’s complaint about non-dishwasher safe attachments just might be a reason not to purchase that brand for some people, while others (myself included) won’t let it deter them.

So, if you’re currently in the market for a kitchen stand mixer or know of someone who is, check out the reviews below for The Best Stand Mixer and also The Best KitchenAid Mixer.
