It's a fixture in the modern American kitchen and the holy grail of wedding presents--the KitchenAid mixer. There's the classic 250 or 275 watt model for about $200, the Artisan for $300 or the larger 6-quart, 575 watt Professional 600 for $450.


But starting Tuesday, Sept. 4, Tuesday Morning stores will be selling the Pro 600 for $300. I've heard of it going as low as $250 on Amazon but only in white. Tuesday Morning is featuring it in nickel pearl metallic, onyx black, white and empire red. With the popularity of the iconic mixer, it now comes in more than 20 colors. Since colors are trendy, it's possible to find good deals on colors that fall out of favor or may be seasonal. The four color choices at Tuesday Morning are classic.


Some say that the KitchenAid is the best mixer on the market. Check the online ratings for yourself. Consumer Reports tested several models including the Classic, the Artisan and the Pro. It rated the 250 watt Classic the highest, then the Artisan, and the Classic Plus. The Pro model, which received low marks for noise, was in the middle of the ratings. Models by Cuisinart were rated lower than the KitchenAid Classic and Artisan but higher than the Pro.

The cheapest price I found online for the Pro was $340 at Amazon, which makes this a fairly competitive deal. It will be in Tuesday Morning stores Tuesday or you can purchase it now at Tuesday Morning online.
