The KV25G0X features a 5-quart stainless-steel mixing bowl, a dough hook, a flat beater and a wire whisk. There's also an accessory hub for adding things like peelers and meat grinders. It's available in your choice of three colors.
I don't own one of these, but over 2,400 Target customers collectively rated the mixer somewhere between 4.5 and 5 stars. (Target doesn't show the precise average.) And a Google search reveals an amazing 4.8-star rating from over 6,000 buyers. If you've been eyeballing a mixer upgrade, or have a wedding gift opportunity coming up, this might be the time to pounce.
