By now, you're no doubt familiar with the iconic KitchenAid stand mixer, which has received glowing praise over the years from many a chef and home baker alike—including members of our own Reviewed staff. If your kitchen counters aren’t already home to our favorite stand mixer model, the KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan series 5-quart stand mixer, now’s the time to get your hands on this must-have appliance, since it’s currently on sale at Macy’s for a cool 10% off its usual $400 selling price as part of the store's massive VIP Sale.

That means you’ll save nearly $40 on the best stand mixer we’ve ever tested to get it for $359.99. Not only is that the best price you'll currently find on this pick, it's the lowest we've seen it go for in months. To get the discount, simply enter promo code VIP at checkout.
This mixer has consistently been our top stand mixer choice through the years, even after multiple rounds of testing, for its easy-to-use features and top-notch performance—we called it a "pleasure to use" when whipping up everything from simple egg whites to highly chunky batters for cookies. It also has a slight edge over the brand's base Classic Plus' 4.5-quart stand mixer, ($279.99), for its large, 5-quart bowl and greater power output: The Artisan series has a 325-watt motor versus the Classic Series' 275 watts of power. With 10 different speed options and a smooth tilt-and-lock base, the Artisan easily came out on top of the heap against other mixer brands, too.
It comes in a bevy of three bold, beautiful colors: Choose from Empire Red, Contour Silver and Aqua Sky. With your purchase, you’ll receive a metal wire whip, a nylon-coated flat beater and a dough hook, all of which our tester found easy to put on, remove and clean. The mixing bowl is even dishwasher-safe for clean-up when you’re done.
Don’t just take our word for it, though—it also features a near-perfect rating from close to 36,000 Macy's shoppers alone.
If the $360 price tag is still a bit out of your budget, though, don’t fret: You've got options! Macy’s also has the Cuisinart Precision Master SM-50, one of our favorite alternatives to the KitchenAid, on sale in three colors for 20% off, with an additional 10% off when you use the VIP code. That means the price will drop from $249.99 to $199.99 to $179.99. We found this appliance to be easier to use than the KitchenAid, making it perfect for beginner bakers or those who don’t want to fuss with too many bells and whistles. We also liked its super smooth-turning dial.
These prices will only be good through April 4 or until stock runs out, however, so you'll want to get these machines on sale while you still can!
