For many people, baking has always been an enjoyable way to spend time in the kitchen with loved ones. Cooking up new recipes to share with others (or enjoy for yourself!) has become an even more popular hobby over the course of the last year and a half, especially since it’s a fun and easy way to relax and unwind indoors.
While it’s certainly possible to whip up an assortment of treats by hand, adding a stand mixer to your arsenal of kitchen tools takes the work out of many recipes. Whether it’s used for kneading dough or baking triple batches of cookies all at once, they’re a solid investment that you can turn to for quick and easy baking.
Certain brands can set you back more than $500, but right now you can score one top mixer from Amazon starting at just $135.
SHOP IT: Amazon, from $135 (originally $200)
The Cusimax 5-Quart Stand Mixer as the affordable alternative to other pricey versions on the market, though it doesn’t sacrifice on performance. Normally retailing for $200, the mixer is now on sale for $135 in two classic colours — red and black.
This mixer comes with everything you’ll need to start creating delicious recipes at home: each stand mixer includes a mixing bowl, splash guard and spatula, as well as three paddle attachments for whisking, kneading dough, and beating.
It features a tilt-head design and a large 5-quart capacity, as well as three different speeds for mixing.
What people are saying
Though the Cusimax 5-Quart Stand Mixer may be less expensive than other stand mixers, it still holds up when it comes to its performance. It’s so far earned a 4.5-star rating from more than 4,500 customer reviews, scoring top marks for its versatility and value for money.
“I was skeptical at first due to the vast price difference among the more popular ones, but this one didn't disappoint me. All three of the attachments work very nicely,” reads one review.
“If anyone is looking for a very good mixer at a great price, you can't go wrong with this one. It's great quality and I am very happy with this purchase,” added another.
This mixer also holds up against pricey competitors, as one Amazon customer revealed in their review.

If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to more expensive stand mixers, the Cusimax 5-Quart Stand Mixer is a solid choice, especially at its current price of just $135. Just be sure that you care for all of the attachments correctly (that means not putting any of its pieces into the dishwasher) and you’ll be sure to enjoy it for years to come.
