Prices of stand mixers greatly vary, with some costing as little as $50 and others priced at over $600. Stand mixers are considered inexpensive when they are sold for $100 or less. Cheap stand mixers usually have small-to-medium capacity bowls (4.5 quarts max) and relatively low-wattage motors (350 watts max). When it comes to these models, lower prices do translate to lower scores: users report lower-than-average levels of satisfaction with these mixers, and report that they are not very reliable. Users do report that they can handle heavy duty tasks and are fairly quiet. Similarly to small stand mixers, these mixers' low scores earn them high value scores.
Sunbeam and Hamilton Beach, well known bargain-brands, offer some great options for budget-conscious bakers.
