7 Awesome Stand Mixers to Add to Your Registry
A beautiful, multifunctional stand mixer pretty much always makes our annual list of Registry Award winners—but who's surprised? Whether it's a classic Cuisinart or a custom KitchenAid, the stand mixer is a countertop staple that'll last years (and help you whip up a lot of cookie dough).
Trust us—and anyone with a mixer of their own—the best stand mixer takes the hard work out of prepping just about anything: bread, cakes, cookies, mashed potatoes, ice cream, juices and sauces—and even freshly ground burgers and homemade pasta. If you're trying to choose the best mixer for your registry, try to strike a balance between affordability and functionality. (And remember, while they're not exactly cheap, they offer serious bang for your buck.)
