KitchenAid Pro 6-qt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer

If big-batch baking is on your holiday to-do list, this mixer is one of the best available. It has a 575-watt motor that runs on ten different speeds, and comes with a generous 6-quart bowl, according to the brand. Although this mixer is a bit on the heavier side at 29 pounds, its features and versatility make it well worth it — for example, the Flex Edge beater allows you to cream ingredients without stopping to scrape the sides, while the lift-configuration uses a lever to raise and lower the mixing bowl to your preferred height. It comes in three colors, and the bowl, along with the beater, dough hook, and flat beater, are all dishwasher-safe.
