Insane Deal on a KitchenAid Mixer

Jennalynn Aug 29, 2007 07:56 PM

At Amazon...

Price changes tomorrow. Grab it if you need it.

The classic 4.5 Quart stand mixer in white only: $99 with FREE Shipping.

Crazy!

    Well, I did it. The price has gone back up to $159 but when I checked my shopping cart it said $99, so I pushed the place order button. I honestly don't know where I am going to keep this huge and heavy mixer, no counterspace, but I do have a baker's rack so probably there and will get back strain every time I use it carrying it to the counter! Again, Jennalyn, thanks. OH, it did say it won't ship until between Oct. 5th and the 22nd.

        At this moment it allows you to order one from Amazon direct, at the price of $198 and change (double!) and shipping time of 1-2 months. A couple of other Amazon partner sellers offer for $179. Wow.

        I already have the one I ordered last week.

          I did get it at the $99 after the price went up to $159, as I had put it in my shopping cart, so checked cart, price said $99 and I hit the buy button pronto!
          I have an sometime in October delivery date, but I don't mind as the price was simply amazing! They have the right to cancel the order, hope they don't! Almost too good to be true!

              I was told (on my order) that the delivery date would be sometime in October, up to as late as Oct. 22. Got an email today that it shipped.
              If anybody didn't get the amazing price, I would periodicaly check back on Amazon. It very well may come along again.

        I scored an 8 qt Le Creuset dutch oven a few years ago for $99 on Amazon. I don't know if the color (cherry red??) was discontinued, or whatever, but that was a steal!!!

            Saw that! Oooooh, where will I put it? I have it in my shopping cart, all I need to do is push a few computer keys! I am sure the power is enough for anything I do! And should I suddenly become a devoted bread maker or baker (highly unlikely) it is not as if I have lost much should I want more power! Thanks for very much Jennalynn!

              Now, considering buying another as a gift, however, does it ship in a brown box, or does it say Kitchenaid on the outside??? I guess I could ship it here, wrap and deliver! Thanks again!

                  I found it on an RSS feed of Kitchen Deals that I subscribe to.

                  I honestly can't remember which one ; )

                  But when I saw it, I knew I had to post it here for the Hounds!

                  I got my KA years ago (a hunter green one) at a Williams Sonoma Factory Outlet... back when factory outlets actually meant something ; )

                      The almost-free-for-all is over.

                      The price is now $159.99 PLUS shipping.

                      I'm glad I could help those who got in on it!

                            There are some on ebay, new, for buy now prices of $89, $99, however there is shipping, and it varies, but usually no tax. Was there tax on the Amazon deal? Curious. As I missed on the deal, I will wait until something equally exciting comes along! Again, thanks to the OP!

                          Just wanted to note that it's not so much a price change as it is that Amazon has run out. If you look carefully the price is from a different seller, not Amazon.com direct. It's possible Amazon will have them back in stock some day, or maybe they will not bother to carry this model anymore. Even if they do get it back in, the price may be different.

                          Thanks for the heads-up, so glad I happened into the board that day. My girlfriend picked one up for her daughter. Funny, we had just sent her a hand mixer that we don't use. We actually have a KitchenAid "Classic" here, circa 1979. It's more beige than white. Seems to work just fine after almost 30 years. I understand they're built slightly differently now, but the basic operation and I think the power rating (although I don't really know for sure on the old one) are the same.

                          Still on sale. I just ordered one. My wife told me not to order one a few months ago because she says we don't have room to store it. At this price with free shipping, I will find a placed for it.

                              I added to this exact thread, that I purchased the pros series 5 in metallic chrome for $260 with tax and shipping. It was $290 but I found a promo code for an additional 10% off. Not sure why my post was removed or censored, I'm sure it wasn't offensive. I thought it was such a good deal that it should be shared. .

                                Maybe it's part of their Labor Day sale... because it didn't go up in price yet.

                                Glad I could help anyone who wanted one!

                                  That is an amazing price. I googled the model and the price range is from $200-300. I have an older model that is 250 watts and is the crank up style as opposed to the tilt one that's on sale. 250 watts has served us well for average baking of cakes etc. For breads, stiffer doughs and meat grinding with the attachment I find my current mixer is struggling. I want to move up to the 600 series but for anyone looking for a basic KA mixer this is a great deal. And free shipping to boot.

                                    Not really, I got mine from Target a few years ago for $169. I'ts their cheapest mixer, but is great for me, and at $99 it's even greater!!! It's the Classic.

                                    Well, the post was made last night, and it's still $99 today. I dunno if it changes tomorrow, but for now it's good!

                                    Don't wait though because most likely scenario is that it will go unavailable before they change the price. Then again, the Artisan (next model up) are selling for $199, plus a $30 mail-in rebate, so if you need the extra power (or just have to have that bright color ;-) that's not a bad deal either.

                                            Seems like an amazing deal...only 250 watts, but should be fine for what I do...I don't do serious baking, but I do make pizza dough. Is this going to be powerful enough for general cooking, mixing? What won't it be able to do?

                                              Yes, I have it. Most likly won't be great for heavy duty kneading, but I am really only into to cakes, cookies, etc. It works for me. For $99 I'm thinking of which dautgher in-law I should buy it for!! A deal!!

                                                jesdamala....i have that model in fact for over 12yrs...my baking level has now progressed into breads, and larger quanitities of bread doughs...it is perfect for the everyday things...cakes, frostings, cookies, even small batches of breads...i now want to save time and bake larger quanitities less frequently; thus i want to do triple batches of cookies( will only do a double batch); and 10+ cups of bread dough recipes, won't do that; and most importantly it won't take the grain grinder attachement and grind grains...min wattage is 350 to grind your own wheatberries, flax etc....
                                                happy baking
