Whipping up gorgeous cakes would be so much easier with one of these iconic glossy machines on your counter. But they can be pricey. That's why Sur La Table's KitchenAid mixer sale, which conveniently falls over the weekend so you have extra time to browse, is a great time to invest.

Whether you're looking to save counter space with the KitchenAid Artisan Mini Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, 3.5 qt. or pull off some heavy duty baking with the KitchenAid Pro Line® Stand Mixer, 7 qt., the sale has something for everyone.

A safe bet for most home cooks is the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, 5 qt., on sale for $349.95, that's $80 less than its original price. Available in 26 (!!) different colors, it has a tilting head and easily handles large and small batches and batters. Large paddles make beating butter and sugar a cakewalk, and the dough hook quickly kneads pizza dough into a supple mass.

The KitchenAid 9-Speed Hand Mixer, priced at $99.95 thanks to the sale, is quiet and sturdy. The beaters whip egg whites in a jiffy but are gentle enough, on the lowest speed, to stir flour without spraying it all over the kitchen (as so many hand mixers do). Attachments store in a handy canvas bag.

And don't pass up the adorable KitchenAid Stand Mixer Cover. The quilted bright red or gray protective layer will guard all KitchenAid tilt head models from nicks, scratches, and dust. You'll save 12% on it, meaning it's just $34.95. We think it looks like an adorable tea cozy, and we know it would make a great gift for the baker in your life.
