'I will never go back': Get Mom the KitchenAid stand mixer she's always wanted while it's $90 off

Take it from a pro baker: It's worth every penny — and not just because you'll be her new favorite child.

It's no secret that KitchenAid is considered the gold standard when it comes to stand mixers, and seeing as my job entails testing kitchen products, I can vouch for these sturdy (and splurge-y) appliances. Most serious home cooks and bakers dream of owning one of these bad boys, but their high price tags often keep them out of reach. If Mom has had one on her wishlist for a while, well, now may be the time to cement yourself as the favorite child: Right now, the KitchenAid Classic Series stand mixer is $90 off at Amazon. Prime members will get their normal speedy shipping, so it'll be here before the holiday with time to spare.

This timeless standby truly is the ultimate "kitchen aid" — it will do all the heavy lifting for you.

We compared prices at other retailers, and you won't find any better than Amazon's markdown — you'll save $90 on the crème de la crème of stand mixers. This workhorse usually costs upwards of $300 (at least), but for serious bakers, it'll more than pay for itself with all the time and effort it'll save.

Before I started writing about kitchen products for a living, I worked with kitchen products for a living — as a baker, to be exact. That said, I still bake pretty much every week, and my trusty KitchenAid stand mixer is what I reach for when I'm making cake batters, cookie doughs, breads, frostings, meringues — you name it, I've probably made it using this mighty appliance. In fact, the bakery where I worked even used this very mixer for certain tasks — it's that good. Unlike flimsier mixers, this one was built to last (there's a reason KitchenAids are often passed down from one generation to the next), so you won't need to worry about replacing it after a year.

At 4.5 quarts, it can hold enough dough to make up to eight dozen cookies at a time and won't take up much room in your kitchen. Oh, and you'll get beater, dough hook and whisk attachments for making practically any dessert under the sun — though some people have also found savory uses, from mashing potatoes to shredding chicken.

Short on storage space? This beauty comes in classic black and white, and once you realize how much you can do with it (and how pretty it looks), you'll likely want to keep it right on the counter for all to admire.

With over 8,000 perfect ratings from satisfied shoppers, this KitchenAid mixer is, understandably, an Amazon fave.

"Everything about this KitchenAid Classic mixer exhibits all the quality I've come to expect from KitchenAid!" exclaimed one impressed baker. "I love the look and the way it performs. I'd never used a dough hook before, but this weekend I made three big batches of rolls, and I will never go back to kneading by hand. Very pleased overall and highly recommend."

Another shopper who gifted the mixer to their mom called it a "total win": "I bought it for her for Mother's Day, and she pretty much hasn't shut it off since," they said. "I love that I could give Mom a great gift from a brand I trust (have had a KitchenAid Mixer for years), and have it shipped across the country by Amazon."

"I haven’t gotten any of the famous attachments yet, but this has made so many things easier," shared a final fan. "I'd never made bread before, and now I'm baking new stuff pretty regularly. It's the perfect size to fit my very small kitchen but very big appetite. Very happy with my purchase."

While it's hard to find someone who doesn't absolutely love their KitchenAid Stand Mixer, plenty of shoppers comment on how heavy it is (about 23 pounds).

"I received this as my Mother’s Day gift and could not be happier," said one person before warning: "I will tell you it's heavy. I was not prepared, coming from my plastic mixer. This is not a mixer you whip out from time to time. It has a permanent spot on my counter."

"Love this unit!" said another customer. "I love the speeds, mixer blades, ease of use, ease of cleaning and ability to attach other devices. Will be ordering other attachments for different pasta molds! But the unit is very heavy for an older person to carry, lift, move. That is why I chose a permanent spot."

Black or white? Choose the color you'll still love in 20 years — because that's how long this appliance could last you.
