KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Why It’s Great: A workhorse with tons of horsepower, KitchenAid stand mixers are a baker’s best friend – but also do much more with various attachments.

Should You Register for It?
Ambitious cooks find it an indispensable tool for not only whipping up batters but also kneading bread dough, making pasta, grinding meat and even freezing ice cream. Don’t bake very often? This beast will take up a lot of real estate in your kitchen. A hand-held mixer that can be quickly stowed might be a better bet.
