Whether you're baking the perfect loaf of bread, whipping up a batch of creamy mashed potatoes, or beating an amazingly stiff meringue, a good stand mixer is a terrific ally in the kitchen. And when it comes to stand mixers, KitchenAid is synonymous with quality, durability, and performance. Every cook wants a KitchenAid mixer, and we've covered how they can perform for decades if you maintain them. The only catch is that they're usually pretty pricey. 

Not today! As part of its Cyber Monday blowout, Amazon has marked the KitchenAid KL26M1XER Professional Six-Quart Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer in Empire Red or Onyx Black all the way down to $219.95. That's over $300 off the mixer's $549.99 list price, and it's the best deal we've seen on a brand-new six-quart KitchenAid mixer that's ready to tackle any recipe. Whether you're shopping for your own kitchen or the favorite cook on your list, you won't regret nabbing this deal.
