Amazon is running a great sale on the KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixers for today only. It appears only certain colors are included in the sale: Nickel Pearl, Empire Red, Licorice & Meringue; choose carefully.
Update: The sale is over, but there’s often a substantial price break on certain colors. Check with Amazon to see the various options. The little preview you get when hovering on links here lists the price as $499, but that’s just retail. It’s usually much less.
We love our now-discontinued KitchenAid mixer (the old Williams-Sonoma model just above the current Artisan), but sometimes a bit more power and a bit bigger bowl would be nice…
