KitchenAid 5QT Artisan Stand Mixer
The world-famous KitchenAid is the Birkin bag of household appliances—which is to say, it’s timeless, stylish, and oh-so coveted. With its classic mid-century design that’s available in a variety of colors, the mixer makes any kitchen countertop look instantly more elegant, even professional. And yes, it’s as powerful as it is pretty—the device is known for its unique planetary motion where its beater and its accompanying attachments work by spinning in opposite directions. The simultaneous but reversed spinning motions result in a faster, more efficient, and more effective mixing process.
Smeg Stand Mixer
Starts at P31,995, available online
Italian appliance manufacturer Smeg has long been known for their distinctive vintage aesthetic, which brings to mind those quirky '50s-era advertisements—think the first episode of WandaVision. The brand’s got ultra-stylish toasters, kettles, refrigerators, blenders, and yup, mixers, too! Their popular stand mixer sports a sleek build characterized by its curved lines—if you’re a Pinterest regular, you’ve no doubt seen glossy images of the device sitting in some of the most gorgeous kitchens you’ve ever seen. You can get it in a variety of chic shades including white, red, pink, blue, green, and more.
Sonifer Stand MIxer
If you’re looking for a mixer in a cute color that won’t break the bank, check out this device from Sonifer. It’s less than P10,000 and you can get it in pink, blue, red, or black. With a five-liter capacity stainless-steel bowl, three beater attachments (a hook, a whisk, and a paddle), and six speed settings, the appliance will have you whipping up the most impressive pastries and desserts in no time!
Cuisinart Precision Master Stand Mixer
Though available in a whimsical periwinkle shade, this Cuisinart mixer has a futuristic look to it, unlike some brands’ more retro-inspired approach to design. And the look doesn’t lie either—the stand mixer provides state-of-the-art features like a powerful 500-watt motor, 12-speed settings for maximum mixing precision, a tilt-back head, and a variety of handy beater attachments. You can also get it in a sleek silver and a punchy red, depending on your home’s color scheme.
Bear Digital Stand Mixer
P4,995, available on Shop SM
While most stand mixers can be quite bulky and eat up a lot of countertop space, this model from Bear sports a more compact build, owing largely to its versatile design. You can use the device the way you would any regular stand mixer (i.e. just turn it on and watch it go) or detach the topmost component and use it like a hand mixer. That way, you can choose which type of device would best suit the pastry or bread you’re currently whipping up.
Breville the Bakery Boss Mixer
If you’d rather avoid colorful appliances—whether to keep your electronics uniform or to maintain your kitchen’s minimalist look—check out this stand mixer from Breville. Decked out in a glossy silver finish and paired with a transparent glass bowl, the device is perfect for those no-frills, immaculately monochrome countertops.
