Every home cook knows that splurging on a stand mixer actually pays off in the long run. The indispensable tool basically serves as your own personal helper in the kitchen, freeing up time (and your hands) to focus on other steps of the recipe, while the mixer does all the work combining ingredients and reducing your prep time.

Fortunately for baking enthusiasts, Aldi is debuting a new stylish machine to assist you with all those mixing and whipping duties, just in time for the holidays. The best part? Unlike its competitor, KitchenAid, and its colorful line of fancy machines, the Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer won't cost you several hundred dollars. In fact, the appliance will only set you back $60. But, don't be fooled by the low price because this mixer packs a powerful punch in its versatility and packaging.

According to a press release from the discount supermarket chain, the Ambiano mixer comes in two colors—blue and red—to brighten up your kitchen counter. However, Aldi's jack-of-all-trades appliance isn't just relegated to mixing, kneading, and mashing, thanks to these three accompanying attachments: a beater, dough hook, and balloon whisk. It's now easier to make pizza dough, bread, meringue, cookies, and fluffy whipped cream without the ensuing hand and arm cramps.

With six different speeds, a 4-quart stainless steel bowl, a detachable splash guard, and dishwasher-safe removable parts, there's no excuse for you not to show off your pastry prowess for the holiday season.
