Effective. Handles most everyday tasks well, but can drag when mixing heavy-duty dough.
Watch it work. At 59 touchpoints per rotation, this mixer effortlessly incorporates all ingredients.
Nothing fancy. The clean and classic white finish blends in nicely with most kitchens.
Worth the price. Consider this an investment for the long term; it'll last you for years to come.
It doesn't get much more classic than the clean, white KitchenAid Classic Series Mixer. In what has become an essential kitchen appliance across the country, it's hard to beat the performance of a KitchenAid model, and this classic version doesn't disappoint.

Owners love that when it's mixing you can ignore it and work on other tasks. While some users have had success kneading bread dough with the included hook, others say it bogs down. Keep in mind that this is the least powerful among KitchenAid's stand mixer line. So if you're looking for a multi-tasking appliance with an emphasis on kneading, you may want to upgrade to a more powerful model.
