KitchenAid or Cuisinart?
Our head of reviews, Millie Fender, put KitchenAid stand mixers against Cuisinart in a direct head-to-head, tossing them cook after cook to determine which brand came out on top.
The answer? Both are fantastic models, but although the Cuisinart trumps the price, you simply can’t beat the KitchenAid Craftsman.
Did you know you can buy new and unused KitchenAid remanufactured and mixers on eBay (opens in a new tab)?
One of our top tips for buying a KitchenAid is to check out eBay. You can find refurbished models at huge discounts if you shop wisely.
The basic structure of these machines has hardly needed to change since the 1950s, and we regularly hear stories of them being passed down from generation to generation. The upshot is that you can find a KitchenAid on eBay that’s a few years old but works like a dream. They’ve got plenty of character, too – a quick scroll just discovered a KitchenAid painted in cherry blossom and another in black leopard print.
However, always Read the details carefully to make sure you are ordering exactly what you expect. Also check shipping times and seller reviews.

We never promote dupes. come on we are Homes & Gardens. Instead, try the second. If you need a stand mixer but can’t afford a KitchenAid, our second The all-time favorite stand mixer is the Cuisinart Precision. Don’t tell anyone, but it makes better bread than the KitchenAid Artisan thanks to a more powerful motor. It also has half a liter more capacity and its regular retail price starts at $250 less. While it may not have the cachet of a KitchenAid, it’s ridiculously good value for money.
KitchenAid versus Smeg: What is better?
The truthful answer is that it’s just not a fair comparison. The KitchenAid Artisan has more accessories, a much bigger collection, more colors and more power. Don’t get me wrong, Smeg blenders are awesome. We love the low price and the retro look. But when we put them to the test, we gave them KitchenAid Craftsman a 5 star rating and Smeg stand mixer a 4 star rating. There’s no getting around it: the KitchenAid craftsman is a clear winner.
