With Amazon’s Prime Day 2019 approaching, it’s time to get your wish lists in order. Staying organized will help you seek out the items you need without getting distracted by other deals so you can have a successful shopping experience on July 15 and July 16.
If you’ve been eyeing a stand mixer, but haven’t been willing to drop the hundreds of dollars it typically costs to purchase a high-end model — Prime Day could be the perfect time to finally press that “add to cart” button.
Stand mixers are great for saving yourself some elbow grease when baking and can really come in handy when baking in bulk — say, over the holiday season or for a graduation party — considering they do all the combining of wet and dry ingredients for you.
These appliances come in handy for all sorts of other recipes as well, such as guacamole, mashed potatoes, meatballs and bread dough.
If you’re willing to put the money into them, stand mixers can be great investments for anyone who loves to cook and bake. Plus, with all the different color options available, the stand mixer doesn’t look too shabby on the countertop, either.
A major player in the stand mixer world is the KitchenAid brand — so much so that it’s probably the one brand that comes to mind when you daydream about stand mixers. It comes in a variety of vibrant colors and retails for as much as $629.99 for some models.
Prime Days Past
On Prime Day, you might be able to nab a KitchenAid stand mixer at a major discount. As we previously reported, the mixer was marked down to $279.87 during 2018’s Prime Day sale. And apparently, 5-quart standing mixers have dropped as low as $200 in the past.
If you’d rather not wait until July 15 to purchase a stand mixer, the KitchenAid Ultra Power Stand Mixer is actually on sale already. It’s available for $269.87 on Amazon, but it could drop even lower once Prime Day arrives, so if you don’t scoop it up now, be on the lookout!
Stand Mixer Uses
Of course, stand mixers are beloved for their mixing abilities, but with the right attachments, these appliances can do a lot more than simply mix perfectly combined cookie dough.
Many attachments come at an additional charge, but for a little extra money, you could transform your stand mixer into a juicer, pasta-maker and more.
This Masticating Juicer and Sauce Attachment is available for $179.95 on Amazon, but could be discounted come Prime Day.
And the Pasta Roller and Cutter for Spaghetti and Fettuccine attachments for a KitchenAid stand mixer are currently marked down from $249.99 to $125.99 on Amazon.
Prices could go even lower when the Prime Day sales roll around, too. Then you can finally make high-quality homemade pasta right in your own kitchen.
Prime Day could be the time to grab a stand mixer and up your home-chef status once and for all! Mark your calendars and get ready to scout for deals on KitchenAid mixers and more when this huge Amazon sale rolls around.
