5 Alternatives To The KitchenAid Stand Mixer

With the news of shipping delays and supply chain issues taking their toll on this holiday season, we’ve been trying to think of ways to make you feel more confident and less panicked if some items on your holiday wishlists are out of stock or too pricy to buy this year. We’ve already covered the Instant Pot, the Roomba, and the Keurig, and now, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer!

Our hope is that you have a list of ‘Plan B’ options if your favorite items are hard to buy this year. If you’re hoping to snag a stand mixer, here are our picks for the best alternatives to KitchenAid.

Note that at the time of posting these prices were accurate, but due to pre-Black Friday sales and Amazon’s dynamic pricing, the prices are fluctuating often. We’ll do our best to keep this up to date, but some prices may vary.

KitchenAid Stand Mixer Alternatives

KitchenAid Stand Mixers have been a Black Friday favorite for as long as we can remember and we’re sure some of you still have this beauty on your Christmas list. While we aren’t sure yet if there will be any stock issues, we do wonder if the prices won’t be as low this year. These kitchen wonders are already pretty expensive, so we’ve got some high-quality KitchenAid stand mixer alternatives that are a little more affordable and still get the job done.

For this post, we’re comparing each of these mixers to the 4.5-Quart Classic Mixer. This is the model that most retailers discount for the holiday season and so we’ll be taking into account its size, power, and features when comparing each of the mixers below. For Black Friday, we usually see this KitchenAid model on sale for $180. If you have your heart set on a KitchenAid, try to match that price to get a true deal.

Aucma 6-Speed 7.4-Qt. Stand Mixer – $135

Frigidaire Retro Stand Mixer – From $60

This is a very close comparison to the KitchenAid mixer and has a sweet, retro look to it. The mixing bowl is nearly exactly the same size, it comes in 5 color options, and the motor power is slightly more powerful than the KitchenAid.

Your best bet for this retro-style mixer is Amazon. They have the lowest prices we’ve seen, with the black colorway at only $60! The other colors are $80, but that’s still a fraction of the price of a classic KitchenAid.
