If you bake (or have plans to learn), you shouldn't do it without the aid of a powerful and reliable stand mixer. And currently, the best of the best -- a KitchenAid Professional 500 5-quart stand mixer -- is on deep discount for Cyber Monday, marked down more than 50% at Best Buy.
KitchenAid stand mixers are all great, but not all are created equal. The Pro Series 500 is at the top of the KitchenAid line in terms of power and control, so if you're going to go for it you might as well really go for it (especially at this price). In addition to mixing dough and batter for any number of delicious cakes, cookies and bread, you can also buy some handy attachments and turn this bad boy into a veggie spiralizer, pasta maker, ice cream maker, meat grinder and more.

This is one of the best prices we've ever seen this model, but it's a fleeting sale and with Best Buy free shipping, you'll be mixing it up by Friday. Or pick it up at a local store as soon as today (must be ordered online).
The Professional 500 features 10-speed control, and an easy-lift 5-quart stainless steel bowl. Available in this fire engine red, silver or black.
