Kitchen aid mixer

After well over 60 years my mixmaster that I inherited from my mother-in-law has seen its last day. I am sad that I have to give it up. I would like to purchase a good, sturdy counter-top mixer. I do not want to go back to a hand mixer. However - I do not need bells and whistles. I don't want to pay for the Kitchen aid that costs around $200. I really only use it for baking stuff and mashed potatoes. Can anyone recommend a brand or model that they use that won't break the bank but also isn't flimsy?

I have a kitchen-aid. Love it. I make sugar cookies withroyal icing and burned through several other mixers. The kitchen-aid is a dream!

I love my kitchen aid! I used it to make meatloaf the other night and today I'm baking cookies.

I would also advise you to go for gold with the kitchen aid. I bought mine at Kohls. I waited until they were on sale and were giving $15 in Kohl's cash for every $50 spent. I love it and use it almost daily.

I also advise you to spend a bit more and get the KitchenAid. You can find good sale prices (check Target, too) and it will last you the rest of your life. If you're really looking for cheap, this KitchenAid hand mixer was $30 and is excellent.

Another Kitchen Aid stand mixer fan and I would highly recommend one. Either go with the Kohls discount and Kohls cash or wait around for easy pay on QVC. You can get a lot of attachments for it so you really wouldn't need a food processor-- there are grating/slicing attachments, meat grinder,
Spiralizer , and pasta maker as far as I know. They are a bit pricey, but well worth it! I do have a Kitchen Aid food processor, too that is great so maybe my above statement isn't quite accurate

I have noticed recently on QVC the glass mixing bowls for them. That would not be for me, I am clumsy!

If that hasn't sold you on Kitchen Aid, my mom had a Sunbeam stand mixer she really liked. I think we gave it to her about 7 years ago. It has a bit of a retro look. It wasn't quite as heavy duty as a KitchenAid, but may meets your needs.

My house has two kitchen aids. We have one for food and one for making bath products. I love them both.

Another vote for the Kitchenaid mixer. I used my for baking, potatoes, shredding meat/chicken. I think it gets used every other day for something!

We recently bought one from Craigslist. It was about half retail price but still an investment.

I remember using my mom's Mixmaster, too.
For most of life though, I've used a handmixer- still have my hard-working 15 year old Krups brand. However, upon retirement, I treated myself to an upgrade- an Artisan Kitchen Aid stand mixer. All those colors - and I chose...white! Kitchen Aid now makes a smaller mini version that Target carries. Probably good enough for small batches of baking. Compare them on the KA site. I bought my stand mixer on sale at Amazon. If you can hold out awhile, the KA stand mixers will go on sale before Mother's Day.

I use my kitchen aid, but have my mom's Sunbeam mixer from the 1950s. It still works, although it's really only good for cake mixes.

I have had my Kitchenaid for 30 years and it is still going strong! It was definitely worth the money--if it wasn't so expensive, I would get another one because I am definitely tired of cobalt blue!

Love my Kitchenaid as well. Look on EBay or Craigslist. My in laws got one at Goodwill. I will use it more when I retire.
