With holiday baking season upon us, there may be no better time to snatch up KitchenAid’s Pro 5 Plus Series mixer, which is currently 40 percent off. Today, both Best Buy and Target have discounted several colorways of this KitchenAid favorite, so it can be on your counter for just $250, and this is likely the cheapest you’ll find a brand-new professional-level mixer from the company. Unlike its Artisan brethren, which feature tilt heads, these stand mixers include a bowl lift that lends itself to more heavy-duty work (like making dough for nine dozen cookies in one go). The Pro 5 Plus Series mixer also comes with all the necessary accoutrements: a paddle head, a bread hook, a whisk head, and a pouring shield for adding ingredients as you go without fear of splatter. So, if you’re ready to upgrade or even just looking to take the sweat out of bread-making, today’s your lucky day.
