When it comes to small kitchen appliances, there are wants—and then there are needs. If you happen to be a regular baker or even a semi-regular home cook, we'd argue that a stand mixer is more of a need—particularly the KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan series 5-quart stand mixer, which has continually trumped every other stand mixer on the market in our tests. Now is the time to get your hands on this must-have appliance, too, since it’s currently on sale at Macy’s for a cool 10% off its usual $400 selling price as part of the store's weekend-long home sale.

While the Aqua Sky and Milkshake hues are excluded from the special, you’ll save $40 on it in Empire Red, Matte Black, Matte Dried Rose, and Contour Silver, all of which drop to $359.99 in your cart when you enter promo code SAVE at checkout.
This mixer has consistently been our top stand mixer choice through the years, even after multiple rounds of testing, for its easy-to-use features and top-notch performance—we called it a "pleasure to use" when whipping up everything from simple egg whites to highly chunky batters for cookies. It also has a slight edge over the brand's base Classic Plus' 4.5-quart stand mixer, ($279.99), for its large, 5-quart bowl and greater power output: The Artisan series has a 325-watt motor versus the Classic Series' 275 watts of power. With 10 different speed options and a smooth tilt-and-lock base, the Artisan easily came out on top of the heap against other mixer brands, too.
With your purchase, you’ll receive a metal wire whip, a nylon-coated flat beater and a dough hook, all of which our tester found easy to put on, remove and clean. The mixing bowl is even dishwasher-safe for clean-up when you’re done.
Don’t just take our word for it, though—it also features a near-perfect rating from close to nearly 36,000 Macy's shoppers alone.
These prices will only be good through tonight, April 18, or until stock runs out, however, so you'll want to get these machines on sale while you still can!
