No kitchen baking experience is complete without a mixer to beat your ingredients into shape.
If you (like countless of others, let’s be honest) took to baking during the circuit breaker, you might have figured out that having a good stand mixer in your arsenal of kitchen appliances will make your life easier.
Now, we’re not here to talk about unsightly options that do nothing to your kitchen design. Unlike hand mixers, stand mixers are meant to be displayed with pride on your countertop — as a symbol of baking prowess, if you will.
This is why we’re championing some of best stand mixers in town, all of which prove that style and form can function as one. From retro-designs to sleek, modernist ones, read on for the full list of the best stand mixers you can get in Singapore.

Few options can beat the Mayer MMSM101 when it comes to capacity. The sturdy option is an excellent choice for those in the home bakery scene (or for a whole batch of midnight cookie cravings, we don’t judge) as it comes with a five and a half-litre bowl capacity and a powerful 1000W motor that whips up your batter in no time at all. To put that in perspective, the bowl capacity can process up to one kilogram of flour and 18 medium egg whites, which is definitely more than enough for the average home-baking enthusiast.
The stainless steel Mayer MMSM101 also comes with six-speed settings and standard accessories like the balloon whisk, a dough hook for bread and an anti-splash cover, complete with a 12-month warranty to boot.
Vintage and retro anything is in again, so what better way to complete your kitchen look than with a stand mixer that reflects this? While the Philips HR1559 Hand & Stand Mixer’s white finishings and textured bowl edges are a blast from the past, its functions beg to differ.
It comes with five different speed settings and a turbo function, while its conic-shaped beater is designed to incorporate the most amount of air in your mix for smooth cake batters with each use. The most unique feature of the Philips HR1559 has to be its detachable function: it can be used as both a hand and a stand mixer for maximum user flexibility.
If you’re more into the sleek, clean lines of industrial-luxe interior and decor, you might want to have the Kenwood KVL4100S in your home. The British brand has a reputation for designing high-quality, powerful and long-lasting equipment that’s used in both professional and domestic kitchens.
This particular model comes with a generous 6.7-litre bowl for all your whisking requirements, and an incredible 1200W motor with a variable speed adjuster on the side. The machine also comes with 36-months worth of local warranty, which means you can be assured that quality won’t be compromised with this purchase.
Smeg is known for its funky refrigerators that feature a quirky, 50s-style retro design, but did you know the Italian-brand also has a whole range of other domestic appliances? This Smeg SMF02 Stand Mixer is a handsome machine that combines power and functionality into an appliance great for any domestic kitchen.
This model is fitted with 10 variable mixing speeds and a “Smooth Start” function: the mixer operates with a reduced initial speed and gradually increases to the selected speed, which helps to avoid damage to the internal components and attachments. It also comes with a polished stainless steel bowl and staple accessories like the stainless steel wire whisk, an aluminium flat beater and a dough hook to get you started on your baking journey.
The KitchenAid brand has always been synonymous with premium mixers that are built to last. The American brand’s iconic mixer now comes in a compact version, designed to address the needs of a growing clientele who have limited spaces in their homes.
This model may be 20 percent smaller and 25 percent lighter, but it comes with the same power as the regular full-size KitchenAid tilt-head Stand Mixers. The downsized 3.3-litre bowl is a decent size for keen bakers, and its design is still that same ‘ol classic one that looks incredible on any kitchen countertop.
