Are you a baking enthusiast? Then a KitchenAid Mixer is probably on your list of dream kitchen appliances. It can be a bit pricier than other brands, but that’s because it also lasts forever (and is therefore cheaper in the long run). Before you commit to this dream machine, you should evaluate certain things:
- Decide on the color. The color names of KitchenAid Mixers can be quite confusing, so you better do your homework and zero-in on a hue that you want. ‘Persimmon’ is not the same as ‘Tangerine,’ and ‘Imperial Black’ is not the same as ‘Onyx Black.’ From the classic shades to the brighter and trendier ones, you have a wide variety of options to choose from. List down the name of the color you want to avoid confusion.
- Research about other brand stand mixers. Everyone knows that there is a sea of options for stand mixers in the market. Even though KitchenAid is like the Mercedes of stand mixers, you must consider all your options before choosing to invest in this high-end brand. If you’re not a heavy baker, you might be able to make do with a less expensive unit.
- Make room for it: Having a KitchenAid stand mixer in your kitchen is a royal affair and it sure does demand space. It is a big and heavy piece of equipment and is quite difficult to move around. Prepare your kitchen for its arrival before you buy it. Will you be displaying it out on your countertop or do you want to store it a cabinet when not in use?
- Stick to your budget: KitchenAid stand mixers are not exactly cheap. If you have a strict budget in mind, then you should be ready to compromise on the color and pick a unit that you find on sale no matter what the hue. You might also save money by buying your KitchenAid mixer online.
