KitchenAid's powerful Pro Series stand mixer is just $200 right now

Best Buy unleashed some early Black Friday deals, and this is a whopper.

Real talk: This is one of the best kitchen appliance deals I've seen all year. KitchenAid stand mixers offer a level of performance that justifies its normally hefty price tags, which is why it's become a gold standard for bakers. The Pro Series, with a 450-watt motor, is at yet another level, and right now a brand-new KitchenAid Professional 500 Series stand mixer -- available in four colors, including a sultry ink blue -- is a whopping $300 off, down to $200. Seeing as we're moving full steam into baking season (heck, we're already there), this might be a good time to pounce on one of the brand's best models. For reference, this same machine is $200 more at Amazon right now. I can't think of a better gift for a baker in need of a little oomph. 

If you've read our reporting before, you know what big fans we are of KitchenAid. The powerful Pro Series can tackle so many arduous kitchen jobs without ever breaking a sweat, including mixing bread, pizza, cake and cookie dough in a way you just can't replicate by hand. This machine also transforms into a pasta maker (fun for kids), vegetable spiralizer, meat grinder and more with the many handy attachments you can add.

Best Buy will ship the unit for free. Or pick it up in-store later today.
