Even if you’re an occasional baker, you likely have a KitchenAid on your wishlist. It’s one of those iconic pieces that look great on your countertop and bring so much joy and ease to baking. And when it comes down to picking a stand mixer, KitchenAid’s 5-qt. Artisan Series Tilt-Head Stand Mixer is among the most popular and powerful of the line. It’s a great size for even the tiniest kitchen and can whip, mix and knead like a pro, freeing you to tackle other cooking tasks. The only catch? It’s expensive. That’s why we recommend snagging one during a sale, like right now! KitchenAid is offering a sweet $80 off the highly coveted mixer from now through June 17.

The Artisan Series 5-qt. Tilt-Head Stand Mixer has been a favorite with editors at our sister site, Kitchn, for quite some time. It was the top choice on the Best Stand Mixer for Home Cooks list, with Kitchn tester, Sharon, even calling it “the fastest and most efficient stand mixer out there.” It also made Kitchn’s 2020 Kitchn Essentials list, earning praise for its ability to “mix up cake batter, knead dough, shred chicken, juice lemons and more.”

Besides being powerful, the stand mixer is convenient: The head tilts back so you can easily add ingredients, while the 10-speed option and 5-qt. bowl capacity let you whip up batter for up to nine dozen cookies within seconds or even mash seven pounds of potatoes in minutes. And, of course, KitchenAid has a seemingly endless series of compatible attachments — also on sale! — that pop on the front of the mixer to make it more versatile. Want to make fresh salsa or quickly chop veggies for meal prep? There’s a food processor attachment just for that. Feel like having zucchini, beet or carrot noodles? Grab the spiralizer! But even without the added attachments, you’ll still be able to make pizza dough, dips, bread, frittatas and so much more with your mixer, since it comes with a flat beater, dough hook, six-wire whip, and pouring shield that fits on your bowl to keep things neat.

Currently, only select colors are on sale but they’re all incredibly attractive. We’re talking hues like cobalt blue, matte dried rose, cast-iron black, and even the cult-favorite empire red! So get ready to up your baking game, and be sure to also check out all of KitchenAid’s super deals on countertop appliances, including blenders and hand mixers.
