Every avid baker needs a KitchenAid stand mixer, the ultimate kitchen powerhouse appliance. Well worth the splurgy price, we consistently consider the Artisan Series to be the best stand mixer on the market thanks to its tilt-head style and relatively compact size.

But for a bowl-lift mixer that’s ideal for bread bakers and anyone who likes to make big batches, it’s all about the KitchenAid Pro Series — and we found a can’t-miss deal happening right now at QVC, where the KitchenAid Professional 600 Series Bowl Lift Stand Mixer is on sale for just $450. That’s $100 off the original asking price on the KitchenAid website! It even includes a bonus attachment, the icing on the proverbial cake.

If you’re not familiar with this KitchenAid stand mixer model, allow us to explain. This version is larger and more powerful than the Artisan mixer. It’s capable of churning out double batches, kneading tough bread dough, and, of course, tackling smaller tasks like whipping, beating, and mixing. It includes a larger 6-qt. bowl (the Artisan comes with a 5-qt. bowl), as well as attachments like a flat beater, dough hook, wire whip, and pouring shield. Each attachment helps accomplish a task, like whipping cream, kneading bread dough, or folding in delicate ingredients. The pouring shield (one of our favorite accessories) will be especially useful to avoid a puff of flour to the face when you slowly add dry ingredients.

The reason this model ranks as the best stand mixer for bread bakers is that it doesn’t budge an inch while kneading particularly tough doughs like ciabatta. We also love that its bowl-lift design (versus the tilt-head) makes it easy to operate and add ingredients along the way. The only caveat: It’s pretty tall, so if you’re planning on storing it on your counter, make sure you have enough space below your cabinets.

This special QVC bundle also includes the handy Flex Edge beater, which is ideal for doing all of your beating and mixing while simultaneously wiping down the sides of the bowl. Yes, really — you’ll never need to stop your mixer to scrape the sides down again!

Are you an avid bread or big-batch baker? Let this great deal on the KitchenAid bowl-lift stand mixer be the reason you finally press “add to cart.” After that, gather your favorite pumpkin dessert recipes ready ASAP, because you’ll be ready for fall baking season as soon as the first leaf hits the ground.

Buy: KitchenAid Pro 600 6-Qt. Bowl Lift Stand Mixer with Flex Edge, $449.99 (normally $499)

The 21st century certainly has its disadvantages. Amid skyrocketing temperatures and an abundance of tiny (but not always affordable) apartments, it can be easy to feel emotionally drained. Sometimes, however, I think about how our forebears had it much worse in many ways. For example, it used to be common practice for pillows and mattresses to be stuffed with straw, animal hair, and other not comfortable materials. In remembering this, I feel blessed to live in a time of so much technological and textile innovation. Not only do I not have to wake up at the crack of dawn to work on the farm, I’m also not subjected to backache-inducing sleep on a lumpy sack beforehand. If anything, the plethora of cooling, moisture-wicking, foam, organic, and further customizable bedding essentials on the market practically prohibits anything but a relaxing night’s rest.

What’s more, AT editors are constantly testing and sharing different home products in a variety of categories, including bedding, to help you determine the best fit for your own space. Not too long ago, AT commerce managing editor Ivy Ford tried out Tuft & Needle’s original foam pillow, and it completely changed the way she sleeps. “I found myself actually excited to go to sleep because I love my Tuft & Needle so much,” she wrote. “At $100, it’s still an investment purchase, but at a much more affordable price point than some options that run upwards of $150 — and the quality is seriously top-notch.” Now, you can actually get the original foam pillow for $85 instead of $100.

What makes this pillow a standout even amid pricier alternatives is that its firm, adaptive foam material conforms to your body, providing support all night long. Tuft & Needle customers appear to be nothing short of pleased with their purchases. “I’m kind of stunned at how great this pillow is,” one buyer wrote. “I am a back and side sleeper, and it’s hard to find a pillow that’s good for both, but I’m super happy with it.” When Ivy slept on the original foam pillow, she found that it somehow managed to hold her head and neck in a comfortable position, yet it was soft enough to sink into. “If you’re looking for a medium-firm or a medium-plush feel, this is a perfect pick,” she shared. Additionally, the pillow contains graphite and cooling gel beads that pull heat away, and its smooth cover is super breathable. It seems like this product has it all. Don’t miss out while it’s on sale!
