KitchenAid stand mixers are classic, beautiful, functional—and super expensive. As much as many of us would love to style our kitchen counters with a classic red or trendy copper mixer, paying between $199 and $300 for one may not be a reality this holiday season. But if you're still interested in making cookies, bread and more in a stand mixer, there are plenty of options at a lower price point. Consider these stand mixers, all priced below $100:
Less Than $50
