If you're shopping for a new stand mixer, the decision often comes down to KitchenAid vs Cuisinart. Famous for their range of brilliant mixers, KitchenAid mixers are built in the USA and come in a range of different colors and sizes. This means they're a more versatile choice for both large bakes and single-serve dishes. 

With that said, others consider the much-loved Cuisinart Precision stand mixer to be an excellent alternative to the classic KitchenAid Artisan, with a larger mixing bowl and similar attachments for cooking anything from bread to cupcakes. 

Many of us will be trying to decide which option is the best stand mixer for their kitchen, and it's a tough call, because the specs are very similar, and both stand mixers are very popular with buyers.
