In case anyone is hoping Santa will bring a shiny new Kitchenaid stand mixer for Christmas, Williams-Sonoma has 20% off certain Kitchenaid mixers today only, and 40% a few models. Not sure how their prices compare to other places but I figured I'd share the news as they don't go on sale too often. The Kitchenaid Professional Stand Mixer 6500 with 6 qt glass bowl is $389 (40% off) plus there's a $50 mail-in rebate. The 6 qt with stainless steel bowl is $360 in a wide variety of colors. You might be able to find one with a stainless steel bowl for a little less (costco has it for $350, but in a limited range of colors).
No, I don't work for them.
