kitchenaid-stand-mixer-for-christmasIt’s December 1st and you know what that means? It’s officially time to get your gift lists out and start ticking off names.

To help you along, a few of us on the Best Buy blog will be sharing our top picks in our 12 Days of Christmas series. Each day we’ll give you a great gift idea that you may find is perfect for someone on your list, and I’m guessing you’ll find a few you’ll want to write down on your own holiday wish list too.

To kick things off, the first gift on our 12 Days of Christmas is your favourite small kitchen appliance and mine: the KitchenAid stand mixer. Why do I love the KitchenAid stand mixer? Let me share the ways.

KitchenAid makes mixing easy

Whether you’re mixing up cookie dough, whisking whip cream, or creating artisan loaves of bread, the KitchenAid stand mixer will be your helping hand. What I most love about having a stand mixer is that you can turn it on and walk away to do something else, and when you come back everything will be mixed up perfectly.

Yes it mixes, beats, and whips, but the true genius of the KitchenAid stand mixer isn’t just in the mixing: it’s what it can do when you add KitchenAid attachments to it, and KitchenAid has come out with some amazing new attachments to add to their lineup over the past year.

Creates any kind of pasta you’d like with the pasta press. Mix up your pasta dough in your mixer than attach the pasta press to the front of the mixer and create your own spaghetti, linguini, and other types of pasta.

You’ll slice vegetables and shred cheese with no effort at all thanks to the roto slicer attachment and your KitchenAid stand mixer.

One of the newest KitchenAid attachments, the KitchenAid Precise Heat Mixing Bowl will let you use your stand mixer to make soup, melt chocolate, and even proof your bread dough. The bowl itself heats up to a max of 104 degrees and works on a timer you can set for up to 10 hours.


KitchenAid Juicer and Sauce attachmentkitchenaid stand mixer juicer

If you’re already setting goals for a healthy new year, you’ll love the KitchenAid Juicer and Sauce attachment for your KitchenAid stand mixer. It’s a slow juicer that processes any fruit and vegetable you’d like to be in it and will create fresh juice or sauce.

KitchenAid Grain Mill

It’s hard to believe, but your KitchenAid mixer can grind up grain too. The Grain Mill will process wheat, oats, corn, and any other grain so you can make your own flour. This would be a really handy gift for someone who eats gluten free.




kitchenaid stand mixer colours

Deck the halls with KitchenAid colour

I’ll admit it: when I first saw the KitchenAid stand mixer all those years ago, I was most interested in the colour. Yes I knew it would be helpful in the kitchen, but everyone I knew who had one choose their favourite colour and displayed it with pride on the counter. Just like everyone else, I really wanted a hot fire engine red stand mixer too.

I’ve had my mixer for 5 years now and although it’s still mixing like a champ, I feel as though it’s time for an upgrade. That’s why this is the year I’m upgrading from my KitchenAid Custom to the KitchenAid Artisan in amazing metallic chrome. It has a large bowl, tilt-head design, and 10 speeds to whip up enough dough to make 9 dozen cookies at a time.

I don’t know of a single person who would be disappointed to find the KitchenAid stand mixer under the tree. Don’t miss tomorrow when we do Day 2 of our 12 days of Christmas series and Erin lets us know why we’re all going to want a Sony 4K TV for the holidays.
