Want to get the best price on a KitchenAid mixer?

Let’s face it – KitchenAid mixers are not cheap. 💰 However, for a couple of hundred dollars, this countertop appliance will do just about everything… except bake the cookies for you!

You can make homemade dough, whip up frosting, shred chicken & cheese, make pasta, and much more with KitchenAid’s extensive line of standing mixers and attachments.

While they do cost a pretty penny, these small appliances can make your life a whole lot easier in the kitchen, and that convenience is well worth the cost!

Here are three ways to get the best price on a KitchenAid mixer all year long:

1. Don’t buy the biggest & latest model.

Unless you’re cooking for a family of 10 and plan to use your KitchenAid mixer every single day, you won’t necessarily need the biggest and fanciest model. Many of the smaller models have a lot of the same features, are more affordable, and usually take up less space on your kitchen counters, too!

As an idea, this small but mighty KitchenAid Classic 4.5-Quart Mixer includes a flat beater, dough hook, whisk attachments, and has 10 mixing speeds, so you can easily prepare a variety of recipes. While it’s currently priced at $249.99, we’ve seen it go on sale for under $200.

2. Watch for KitchenAid rebates.

Occasionally, KitchenAid offers promotions & rebates on select mixer models in the form of a check or VISA gift card. While these promotions may not come around often, we do usually see them pop up a couple of times a year. We’ve also seen various mail-in rebate offers at Kohl’s, QVC, and other retailers!

3. Buy a refurbished model.

On the fence about buying a factory refurbished KitchenAid Mixer? Don’t be, as they’re a great way to save you some dough… so you can get in the kitchen and make lots of dough! 🍪 😂

Whenever you purchase a refurbished model through KitchenAid, you can rest easy because they include a 6-month limited warranty from the date of purchase (excluding cosmetic damage).

Yes, refurbished mixers have been returned from a consumer, retailer, or trucking company, BUT they have been cleaned and inspected to the original mechanical and electrical condition – so they work just like new!

They also may contain cosmetic blemishes (which are not covered under warranty), but you likely won’t even notice a few scratches or dings while the mixer is sitting on your counter! If you do purchase a refurbished mixer, be sure to keep the dated sales receipt since you may be asked to email, fax, or mail in a copy of the receipt.

    Refurb is definitely the way to go. My Mom got one for $149 in Jun/Jul and said she could not tell the difference, the unit looked brand new.

    • Irene (Hip Sidekick)

      We’re glad to hear your feedback, Margaux. We agree that it’s an excellent way to save and still get a great product!

  2. Lesly

    How long do they usually last ? I’ve been having mine for 17 years now, I use it constantly, it’s working as good as the first day but I’m afraid it will suddenly brake and I wouldn’t want to pay full price to replace it

    • Irene (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question, Lesly. According to a good source, KitchenAid will tell you that the lifespan of their mixers is about 15 years. Under the right conditions, though, a mixer could last 30 years or more. It depends on how often it’s getting used and how well it’s being taken care of. Hope that helps!

    • Cat0289

      I’ve had the basic, white model for 28 years. Still runs great! I did replace the bowl last year and I don’t use it every day. Sometimes it’s just easier to grab a hand mixer. I’ve been on the fence about updating it but it keeps hanging in there.

  3. Katie

    I purchased a refurbished KitchenAid mixer, 13 years ago, and it’s still going strong!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome, Katie! Thanks for commenting!

    Glad to hear they last so long! Since some of you have been owners of one for many years I have a question. The tilt head always seems to cost more, isn’t as heavy duty or as large of a capacity as I’d like. Is the tilt head really worth the higher price or do you find it not a necessity?

  5. Deb

    Has anyone seen a good sale on attachments? Especially the meat grinder? Thanks

    • Jessie

      The meat grinder is 30% off at Bed Bath & Beyond and you can use a 20% off coupon. We got the metal one for $56 (normally $100)!
