Top 10 Best Kitchen Stand Mixers

The top rated stand mixers arena is dominated by KitchenAid and Kenwood. What do you need to look for in a Kitchen Mixer?

Key Features When Considering a Kitchen Stand Mixer

  • Power and speed settings: mixers need to have enough torque and power to perform slow to high speed mixing action. Generally a powerful motor is a good indicator but we have seen direct drive and DC low power motors that work just as efficiently compared to high powered AC ones. Typical speed settings are anywhere between 5-10 levels. Some mixers offer variable speed and pulse mode for use with different attachments.
  • Capacity: A good measure of how much the mixer can take is in the size of its bowl. You can find information such as the maximum size or weight of cake you can make, the weight of flour (number of cups or kg), number of eggs or egg white, the volume f cream, the weight of bread dough mix, mashed potatoes and cookies.
  • Included and Optional Attachments: typical attachments include the beater or paddle for mixing, balloon whisk and dough hook. You can also buy additional attachments or bowls to work with your mixers, see the next item the different attachments.
  • Power Outlet for Tools/Attachments: Some stand mixers offer additional attachment outlet for different tools or bowls such as food processor, blender, miller, grinder, pasta cutter, citrus juicer, liquidiser and more. These additional attachments are usually optional but certain makes include them.
  • Construction: Reliable, sturdy and lasting body and attachments: Check the build and construct of the mixer, bowl and attachments. With powerful motors, the mixer would also need to be reasonably weighted and have rubber feet to prevent it from creeping while in operation.
