When I first got my KitchenAid stand mixer, it felt like a big deal. Freshly graduated, I’d just started a new job and moved to Brooklyn, and I was in the process of outfitting my first post-grad kitchen. I already owned all of the basics from my previous place, but its minuscule kitchen — and my student-sized budget — didn’t allow for many splurges. After eyeing it for a while, I could finally justify placing that iconic appliance on my countertop. It felt like a turning point: I finally had a real adult space.

In the months since, I’ve realized that KitchenAid stand mixers, though a bit hefty in terms of price and size, are completely worth it whether you bake every day or not. Though I had no doubts, its reputation as the best of the best is totally earned. The sheer amount of tasks the machine can accomplish — attachments turn it into a pasta maker, spiralizer, food grinder, ice cream maker, and more — means that it will pay for itself sooner than later.

However, all of this isn’t to say that you have to pay full price. Fortunately, if you do some digging, you’ll likely come across a retailer offering a KitchenAid mixer at a discount — and I just found a stunning deal at QVC that you won’t want to miss. The editor-loved 5-quart Artisan Stand Mixer, complete with pastry and Flex Edge beaters, is 13% off right now at QVC.

What is the KitchenAid 5-qt Artisan Stand Mixer w/ Pastry Beater and Flex Edge?

Everyone says that KitchenAid stand mixers last for the long haul, and this model is no exception. With its sturdy metal construction and dishwasher-safe stainless steel bowl, it’ll look (and perform) just as exceptionally as the day you bought it years later. The tilt-head design makes the bowl’s contents easy to access, and 10 speeds guarantee that it can handle whatever task you throw at it. In fact, former editor Riddley confirmed just that when determining the best stand mixers on the market. The Artisan earned the top spot.

“The mixer’s bowl has a helpful handle and easily twists to lock onto the mixer’s base,” she wrote. “The machine is powerful, too, easily able to tackle small and large quantities of ingredients, be it whipped cream or cookie dough.”

Best of all, the deal also includes some extra attachments. The Flex Edge beater, which costs $35 alone on KitchenAid’s website, scrapes the sides of the bowl to ensure no ingredients are wasted. To top it all off, you can snag the classic red color — which I can assure you is just as gorgeous in person — or one of the other nine options that best matches your style.

What QVC Shoppers are Saying

Average Rating: 3.5/5

“I see the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer on most of the food programs. I always wondered if this mixer was really a diamond in the kitchen or a lump of coal. Is it truly a diamond! I splurged on this purchase for me. I am on a fixed income so QVC with easy pay made this splurge possible and worth every dime! How did I live without this mixer. It is so versatile. What a workhorse! The mixer is powerful, beautiful and I love it!” — Shirley in Indiana

“I love this mixer! It works like a dream. Dough mixing in particular is effortless. The ability to walk away, & work on something else is fantastic. After much indecision; I decided on Blue Velvet as my color choice. It livened up my kitchen decor, & looks great on my countertop. ( I ordered a matching KitchenAid cover on Amazon, & it looks great! QVC should carry them.) Also, you can’t beat all the extra accessories that come with. You will not regret this purchase.” — Clue Club

“I was so glad to finally be able to get a KitchenAid stand mixer. 20 yrs ago I had bought a different brand and when It died I knew I wanted to get a KitchenAid. I have a friend who has one in their family that is 60 yrs old. It’s a breeze to use and a really great size without taking up too much space. The payments made it possible for me as a senior on a fixed income.” — Colorado Cook

Take it from me, other Kitchn editors, or the reviews: You won’t regret making this upgrade. You can even take a page out of QVC shoppers’ book and take advantage of the retailer’s gradual payment plan, which allows you to divide it into $78 chunks over a few months. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a no-brainer to me!
