Aldi Stand Mixer

Fall is here! It’s the season of pumpkins, mums, apple picking, bonfires, s’mores and sweaters.

For many of us, fall is also the start of baking season. Sure, you can make apple butter with some of those apples you picked, but many of us will also bake an apple pie. And let’s not forget the pumpkin bread we love this time of year!

Then it’s time to bake the pies for Thanksgiving, and Christmas cookies, and the cakes for Christmas dinner … and the list goes on.

What do we need to bake ALL THE THINGS?

One of those Kitchenaid Mixers sure would come in handy, wouldn’t it? But they come with a hefty price tag.

What’s that, you don’t have an extra $250 lying around right now? Oh hey, friends! Once again, ALDI HAS OUR BACKS.

This Aldi Mixer is a dupe for Kitchenaid in many ways, but not in the price department. It’s going to be in stores November 4 for just $59.99!

Ambiano Stand Mixer

The Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer is available in your choice of black or white.

It comes with a stainless steel 4-quart mixing bowl, and a detachable splash guard which is going to really help with keeping your counter clean while you bake.

The mixer has a tilting-head mechanism, just like the classic Kitchenaid. And it comes with three attachments …

Beater, dough hook, and whisk.

All removable parts of the mixer are dishwasher safe, and it has rubber feet to keep it steady on your kitchen counter.

Ambiano Stand Mixer Reviews

This mixer was sold in Aldi’s UK stores last year, when a new season of the Great British Baking Show was released.

Reviewers on Aldi’s UK website rate the mixer at 4.1 stars out of 5. (Yeah, that’s right … you can order Aldi Finds online in the UK! Wouldn’t that be bloody wonderful?!)

  • The UK reviewers say it “does what it says” and they were “pleasantly surprised.”
  • The Kitchn tested the Aldi stand mixer on cookie dough, egg whites and homemade bread, and they decided it was a pretty solid buy.

One thing to note: This stand mixer has a body made of plastic, rather than metal. We don’t think anyone could expect it to last a lifetime, like we expect our much more expensive Kitchenaid to do.

What will you bake first with your Aldi stand mixer?

    • I was told they only sell it in-store once a year. Looking for a brand or serial number to search for it on other sites to possibly purchase. Good luck ????

  1. It might be a nice mixer, but you can only run it for four (4) minutes at a time. Then it says you need to let it sit for 10 minutes. I timed 10 minutes and it still would not turn back on.

  2. I don’t understand why people continue to compare it to kitchen aid mixers.
    Compare it to a similar price point, otherwise it’s like comparing the performance of a Porsche vs a Grand AM…
    It only looks similar, but it’s worth the price for being a novice, or less expensive option.
    Also, I’ve made bread, cookies, whipped cream, and a variety of other things with mine, so I have the right to say this!

    • I started following a recipe in the User Manual, for a dough for shortbread cookies stirring the melted butter with the wire whisk. After about one minute into the stirring – I always use a timer – the wire whisk broke, the wires fell out. The 24 hour warranty fulfillment center answered to my report after I reminded them after 60 hours with the offer that I should send in a check $ 11.95 to get a new whisk.
      No information about the timeframe whatsoever.
      I do have the impression that the whole mixer is unfortunately a rip-off as the quality of the product is not even up to their own instructions

  3. Had the Aldi Mixer for 4 years and it’s mostly used for making bread every few days. The mix time is usually between 10 and 15 minutes of very hard work. It would be nice if the gears were a bit quieter but it’s never failed or stopped because of overheating. (I was not aware of the4 minute limit.)
    My impressions, brilliant machine in value for money. If it was to break down today I’d buy another when they become available.

  4. Does anybody know who makes the Ambiano Classic Food Mixer?
    We purchased one from Aldi a year ago and after only two uses the plastic “release button” that lifts the mixer arm failed to work as the locator pins “stripped” and failed to engage the metal connection pin.
    We replaced the release button only for it to happen again. I have tried to oil the connector pin to try and release it a little but it seems to be too tight for the flimsy plastic release button to operate the mixer arm, a metal release button is needed but Aldi no longer offer this mixer and the wholesaler/importer cannot help me.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  5. I had a Kitchen Aid K5A mixer for decades to do wedding cakes, groom’s cakes, birthday cakes, etc..
    The reason cake decorators, caterers, etc., buy Kitchen-Aid instead of the less expensive Univex commercial mixers is because most say Kitchen Aid’s gear-driven appliances work so much better, last so much longer, &;require so much less expensive repairs & parts replacements than other brands belt-driven appliances. Our personal experience has been that belts break often & gears rarely !
    My family became so enamored (deservedly) with my Kitchen Aid that all 3 of my nieces, & both my great-nieces got Kitchen Aids themselves, None of us do cake decorating, etc., anymore, but we consider them virtual necessities for holiday baking, etc..
    Are Aldi’s Ambiano Stand Mixers gear-driven, because if they are not, many of us heavy-users may find them more of a “cosmetic” replacement than an equal-performance replacement ?
