Stand mixers are the workhorses of the kitchen appliance world. Designed to save your arms from the repetitive tasks of mixing, kneading and whipping, they’re a great investment for hands-free baking and breadmaking. Just switch it on and it’ll chug away in the background.
Black Friday is a great time to snag discounts on top-performing kitchen gadgets from brands like KitchenAid, Smeg and Nespresso – not just stand mixers, but everything from food processors to the 春秋娱乐:best coffee machines. Tested by BBC Good Food experts, these models were chosen for their build quality, efficiency and variety of attachments, particularly those included for making cakes and doughs.
Large capacity mixing bowls are usually standard, as are dough hooks and whisks, but attachments and speed functions do vary. We’d recommend doing your own research so that you have a model in mind.
Consider the capacity you need. How big is your countertop? Stand mixers are medium-sized appliances, so take up a larger footprint than, for example, a kettle. If you’d like a mixer to cover the basics, there’s little need to splash out on a high-spec gadget when there are better value-for-money options available.
We’ll be updating this page regularly with all the latest news and Black Friday stand mixer deals on our favourite tried and tested machines below.

Russell Hobbs Go Create stand mixer, Black Friday deals
- Best price: Save on RRP,
Best mid-range stand mixer
This is one of the cheapest stand mixers on the market, but the performance is far from budget. Offering 10 speed settings, a five-litre stainless steel bowl and three attachments, including a flat beater, dough hook and balloon whisk, it’s a great all-rounder for baking lovers who want a bit of oomph for beating your Christmas cake. It’s not the newest design, which is probably why this mixer is available at Argos for such a low price. Snap it up whilst stocks last. RRP around £150.

One to watch:
KitchenAid 6.9-litre Artisan stand mixer, Black Friday deals
Best stand mixer for baking
This KitchenAid screams ‘serious baker’, but when it comes to noisiness, you’ll still be able to hear the radio over its top speed setting. It’s a real statement bit of kit, that powers through batters, bread doughs and pastry with zero fuss. .
Although there are no current deals on this Artisan mixer itself, there’s opportunity to save 40% on its sibling, the at Nisbets, (save £343.60). Both share a 500W motor and feature whisk, dough hook and flat beater attachments, but where the Artisan’s are stainless steel, the Heavy Duty machine’s dough hook and flat beater are anti-stick coated aluminium. As with all expensive kitchen appliances, make sure you read the product’s full specifications to ensure it is the right model for you before buying. .

When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday falls on Friday 27 November this year, immediately followed by Cyber Monday on 30 November. Being the major shopping event before Christmas, deals will run across a full three days, but we’re already seeing discounts go live in preparation.
Due to government restrictions on the opening of non-essential retail shops until 2 December, Black Friday will look a little different this year. Retail giants are bringing their biggest deals online earlier to entice customers and suss out competitors’ prices in plenty of time.
Once you’ve decided on which stand mixer would suit you and your kitchen best, we’d recommend researching its RRP and watching discounts as they ramp up. Then you’ll be better equipped to recognise a strong deal.
How to get a good deal on Black Friday
- Stand mixers vary dramatically in price, so to get good value for money, think about the functions that really matter to you. Our 春秋娱乐:best stand mixers list and buyer’s guide is a good place to start.
- Know the RRP in advance so you’re aware of how much money you’ll save with each deal. The manufacturers page is a good place to start if you’d like to source details of the original recommended price.
- Do your research in advance so you know the model you want. It’s easy to be seduced by big deals on expensive gadgets, but if you don’t need the majority of functions on offer, you’re not saving any money.
- Only buy what you can afford.
- Some retailers, such as John Lewis & Partners and Currys PC World guarantee that they will match a price if you find a product being sold cheaper by another retailer.
Should I wait for Cyber Monday?
The concept of a dedicated day on which to find the best online deals won’t be in play this year. High street retailers are set to see far fewer in-store visitors, and as a result, are already bringing deals online. This means competition with the likes of Amazon, Very and Wayfair will be fierce. Your money is what they’re competing for, so to entice customers, we’re already seeing deals drop, with many more to come.
Although retailers may save the best deals for Black Friday, stock challenges are a symptom of increased online demand, so our advice is to buy when you see a price you like.
Do your research ahead of time, decide on the best stand mixer for your kitchen, and check back here for all the latest news and best Black Friday 2020 stand mixer deals.
