When buying a stand mixer, you will notice there are tons of products out there. The market is virtually teeming with all kinds of products from all kinds of brands. And, most of the time, most of the products are very high quality. However, in every aspect of life, someone has to be better than the others, someone has to be the best. This holds true everywhere, even in the kitchen appliance business.
So, which are the best brands? What brands are the most trusted, and what brands consistently deliver high-quality products? This is, of course, the first questions we ask ourselves whenever procuring something new. Well, you needn’t scour far, for we have the answer. In this little article, we’ll present the top three stand mixer brands, and give some information about the benefits of these brand’s products and why are they so popular.
Standing at the top of the food chain is the lion. Standing at the top of kitchen appliance business is KitchenAid. KitchenAid is, without doubt, the most famous and the best regarded company on the market. Every single product this company makes is nothing short of perfection. Whether it’s stand or handheld mixers, this company produces devices of the highest quality with consistency.
For example, the KitchenAid KSM150PSER Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer is one of the most reviewed products and one of the most frequently used. What makes this particular product so good, and also that which appears in other products, is the incredibly powerful motor it has. KitchenAid products have always had very high-end motors that enabled them to tackle even the heaviest of tasks.
On top of that, KitchenAid mixers are very good at using all that speed. Each stand mixer comes with a 10-speed configuration so that you may easily adapt the product to the task. However, with quality comes the price, and KitchenAid products can be quite heavy on that side. But, if you can afford a KitchenAid, you will most certainly get your money’s worth, and you’ll get every penny of it.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, we find Hamilton Beach. Not the quality spectrum, but the price spectrum. While KitchenAid devices carry a hefty price tag, Hamilton Beach specializes in budget products. This company realizes that not all households can afford (nor really need) pricey devices, but simply mixers that perform well at an affordable price.
The thing that makes Hamilton Beach products so unique is the fact that they are made for the common household. This means that they produce well rounded mixers that perform well on a consistent basis and have a long life span. They are specifically made for constant, day-to-day use, and, as a result, have been built to be resistant to constant wear and tear.
This means that their mixers have strong motors, good speed settings and all the basic functions you need. They often come with smaller capacity bowls. In all, Hamilton Beach products are well-rounded and affordable, durable and long-lasting; just what a regular household needs.
As for Breville, this is not so well-known a company. But for someone who is in the kitchen appliance business, Breville is the only company that can usurp KitchenAid’s reign. Breville is KitchenAid’s most powerful adversary, and it keeps itself in the race with an ample supply of products which are, in terms of quality, neck and neck with KitchenAid’s.
Breville products are designed with power and ubiquity in mind. Breville counter mixers stand out as devices powered by some of the most powerful motors on the market. The deep reach of their product’s wires and special bowl designs allow for ingredients to be mixed thoroughly. Also, their products are designed with safety in mind, with many devices having Load Sensing Technology that stops the device every time you pour something in it do avoid accidental splattering and in case your hand falls in.
On top of that, Breville products are famed for their speed selection (up to 12) which allow the user to fine tune the workings of the device according to the task. All in all, a Breville product is, pound for pound, just as good as a KitchenAid’s. However, pound for pound, they are just as expensive as KitchenAid’s.
