Today's Amazon Deal of the Day is the KitchenAid Ultra Power 4.5 quart stand mixer at $179.99 (42% off the regular price). If you're a holiday baker or general lover of cooking, a stand mixer is a great investment. This appliance, according to the best cooks I know, makes mixing doughs and batters effortless.
I happen to be experimenting right now with a gluten-free, dairy-free diet for my son, so I find myself baking EVERYTHING from scratch. I've been eyeing one of these for months, and I've never seen one for sale under $240 (someone correct me if there's a better price out there). My birthday's in a couple weeks…I may just buy this for myself today.
