Quality stand mixers are built to last—and for some mixers, this will mean for years (and years and years). With proper care and cleaning, it’s not unheard of for some mixers to be passed down in families to the next generation. Fortunately, it’s not too complicated to keep your mixer in great shape. If you wipe down the body after every use and hand wash your attachments, then you should be set. We like the high-tech touches on this mixer like the 15-minute countdown timer that ensures all of your ingredients will be properly combined. It also has a gentle-fold function that’s great for not over mixing delicate cakes and pastries.
