For an affordable introduction to KitchenAid products, look no further than the KitchenAid K45SS.
It has a 4.5-quart dishwasher-safe stainless steel bowl that can make approximately four loaves of bread. The tilt-head design makes it easy to add ingredients, as well as insert or remove the mixing bowl and attachments.
This mixer comes with a dough hook and flat-beater, both of which are dishwasher-safe, as well as a balloon whisk, for all your baking needs.
The versatility of this mixer can be improved thanks to the variety of attachments that can be purchased to go with it, turning it into a juicer, pasta maker, sausage stuffer and more.
Ten speed settings and planetary mixing motion ensure that your dough is efficiently kneaded. A motor head locking mechanism makes sure that the mixing arm stays securely in place whilst the mixer is in use, thus helping reduce the risk of making a mess.
This stand mixer measures 13.9 inches high, 14.1 inches deep and 8.7 inches wide. It weighs roughly 25 lbs.
