From kneading dough to creaming eggs and sugar, this mixer can handle just about anything. With 10 different speeds, it can easily go from the toughest mixing jobs to the most delicate. A diverse machine, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer includes a flat beater, a wire whisk, and a dough hook.

It comes with a 1-year warranty.
