What’s even better: These totally essential KitchenAid appliances are all under $200.
When it comes to the food you prepare in your kitchen and the tools you use, we know you’re always searching for the best of the best—but at the most affordable price point. That’s why we love KitchenAid’s appliances (like this best-selling model from Amazon, which currently has more than 7,300 five-star reviews).
The company, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, knows that its customers run the gamut from busy parents to baking pros who need practical (but powerful) tools that will get the job done.
While investing in a KitchenAid stand mixer might seem like you’re making a hefty purchase (we love the brand’s light blue, limited edition model), it’s a powerful and effective multi-purpose appliance to have in your kitchen. Plus, there’s nothing better than a kitchen tool that frees up your hands while it does the work!
So you’ve made that stand mixer purchase, now what? KitchenAid has several other tools outside of their famous stand mixers like press coffee makers and helpful attachments that snap right onto your mixer. Basically, there’s whole line of KitchenAid appliances you never knew you needed!
Love making zoodles or homemade ice cream for the kids? KitchenAid’s genius attachments can quickly spiralize a zucchini or easily whip up your favorite old-fashioned ice cream recipe. Keep reading for a list of the best.
