Every baker dreams of owning a KitchenAid mixer. With its retro curves, variety of eye popping colours, and functionality, it is basically the car enthusiast’s Volkswagen Beetle equivalent for the home baker. As if things couldn’t get any better, KitchenAid launches a brand new mini model that is perfect for limited counter space and “smaller batch” lifestyles of the modern home dweller.

Good news for all home cooks and budding chefs out there. The Mini Stand Mixer features a 3.5-quart (3.3 L) capacity and is 20% smaller and 25% lighter compared to its larger siblings like the Classic Stand Mixer. This means no more wastage of tasting batches or scrambling to find additional storage space. More room on the kitchen counter also translates to more room to be creative – so go ahead, roll out that pastry dough for your rustic weeknight apple crumble pie.

The KitchenAid Mini Stand Mixer may be small, but is a powerful workhorse –  with a flat beater, wire whip and dough hook, it can efficiently mix and knead ingredients for up to five dozen cookies or a loaf of bread. The Mini also accommodates all optional hub-based attachments available for larger models. This includes the pasta roller and cutter set, spiraliser, food processor, food grinder and grain mill – perfect for making everything from four different types of pastas to self-ground beef patties and julienned carrots.

The Mini is also ideal for those who desire a smaller mixer that provides the same overall features of the larger models. It is especially suitable for urban apartment dwellers who do not have enough kitchen space to devote to bigger, clunkier mixers. It provides the same wonderful experience and inspires its users to take on culinary challenges otherwise left unconquered.
