Is there a passionate pastry chef or avid home cook in your life? Someone with big culinary talent can be hard to shop for–after all, they probably have all the latest gadgets or a set of high-quality knives. If you’re feeling stumped, have no fear: a stand mixer, whether it’s upgrading their old one or something they haven’t been able to splurge on, is a gift with wow factor for your favorite chef. Abt has stand mixers from some of your favorite kitchen appliance brands–as well as some new faces–so you can pick the perfect gift for your loved one.
The Kitchen Classic: KitchenAid Stand Mixers
KitchenAid stand mixers are a classic in this category. Known for their array of colors, these small appliances are a classic gift option. Whether you’re opting for the classic model or the upgraded Professional series, these mixers are a thoughtful gift for home chefs. Their stunning design is intentional–these mixers are made to live on the counter. Get your friend a mixer in their favorite color and watch their face light up when they unwrap the box. Choose attachments like an ice cream maker or pasta roller so they can make their favorite dish at home.
The Unexpected Classic: Bosch Stand Mixers
KitchenAid isn’t the only classic brand that makes stand mixers, though. While they’re known for their kitchen appliances like dishwashers, Bosch also makes top-rated stand mixers and Abt carries their latest offering. Their design is simplistic, perfect for the minimalist chef; it also doesn’t take up a lot of space on the counter or in a cabinet, perfect for experienced home chefs who own all the latest gadgets. With a powerful base motor, this mixer can handle your heaviest loads, whether you’re kneading dough for bread or mixing dense dough for a sweet treat.
The New Arrival: Ankarsrum Stand Mixers
New to the American market, Ankarsrum mixers are about to take the culinary industry by storm. What makes these Swedish stand mixers so special? Unlike many popular mixers, they’re belt driven rather than gear driven. Additionally, the motor is in the base of the unit for steady, powerful mixing. If you’re looking for a top-of-the-line gift, this is the mixer for you. You can customize your gift with one of Ankarsrum’s many attachments, like the pasta roller or meat grinder. While these mixers are available in a variety of hues, we love the red for a festive touch.
No matter which mixer you choose, it’s sure to be a memorable gift for your favorite amateur chef. From pasta to cookies to bread, these multi-use appliances are the perfect gift for the gourmand in your life; they’ll love the way these small yet mighty appliances unlock their culinary potential.
