What's the cheapest viable stand mixer for someone who only fricks around with baking like once every few months and has physical problems so mixing by hand isn't an option?

    Buy once cry once
    Get a cheaper garbage grinder and you'll wish you bought a kitchenaid anyway

    If in the US, wait for costco to have them on sale

        Why are these things so expensive?
        They're just a motor and some stainless steel.

        the worst part is, the new ones are all built even worse than they used to be. they are designed to fail in a manner which makes it cheaper to buy a new one than to try to repair it.

        odd assertion

        there's no replacement parts. they will have you send a broken one in and send you a new one if it's under warranty. otherwise you're sol unless you want to fricker with buying a for parts one off ebay or something.

    buy one off of Amazon and then say the package arrived empty. i did this to get a sous vide machine and a massive sous vide container worth like $250 total for free. its not immoral because amazon israelites would kill you and your whole family for a single cent.

    What’s your budget? If you really want a Kitchenaid then the refurbs occasionally go on sale and you can get a good stand one for under $200:
    https://www.kitchenaid.com/refurbished/appliances.html

    The 5.5 quart stand (non-pro) is $200 right now, I don’t recall if it’s as low as they go but it’s the same model as the refurb 6 quart with a slightly smaller bowl.

      Why did you have to post this? NTA, but I have been on the fence about kitchen aid and I actually like the price of some of the artisan series mixers.

    hamilton beach ones work fine. if you already have a food processor, you probably don't need to buy a separate stand mixer.

    This depends. If you are only doing quick breads, cookies, and whipping eggs/cream, than any cheap shit will do. If you are going to make yeast leavened products though, you'll want something built a little tougher.

    Personally I can vouch for Kitchenaid Pro 600. But that'll be overkill for you. A Hamilton Beach will be fine if you don't make bread. If you just bake for yourself, I wouldn't go with anything price than a Kitchenaid Mini.

      To piggyback off this guy, you really dont need a stand mixer unless you want to make bread with really developed gluten structure, so anything soft, pillowy and with a lot of verticality, like sandwich bread. Focaccia is no knead, quick breads (eg banana bread) can be done with a spatula or danish whisk, whipping eggs/cream can be done with a hand mixer. Cookies do benefit from the force of a stand mixer, but still very doable by hand. In your case though, maybe not.

      If you want to make bread that requires kneading, the lowest benchmark would be the kitchenaid pro series. If you have money to spend, ankarsrum is even better but more specialized

      Personally I think there is a world to explore when it comes to breads and pastry that doesnt require a stand mixer. Take 'rough' puff pastry for example. Many applications, doesn't need a stand mixer. Muffins, cupcakes, banana bread, cookies, focaccia. Ive even made no knead cinnamon rolls before
