DASH Everyday Stand Mixer Review

Ready to downsize? Has the stand mixer become a counter hog? A kitchen tool that can be decorated but is too heavy to move? Looking for a smaller or mini stand mixer? The Everyday Stand Mixer by DASH is a mini mixer with six speeds and a 3 quart bowl with a retro look. 

The Dash Everyday includes a set of beaters and a set of dough hooks along with a book of directions and recipes. Six colors are available: black, aqua, cream, pink, red and white accented with silver trim.



Weight

The weight or lack of is one of my favorite features of the mixer. So easy to move on the counter. So easy to store under the counter. The power the mixer generates with such a light weight is quite unexpected!

Convenience

The light weight of the Everyday stand mixer was a major factor in my consideration of a mini stand mixer. The prior stand mixer was heavy and needed alot of space on the counter. The space the Everyday stand mixer needs is minimal.

Measuring in at 1.93 pounds for the DASH Everyday compared to 25 pounds for the well known brand 5 QT stand mixer, the Everyday is so easy to move and store whether on the counter or in a kitchen cabinet. The low weight is my favorite feature of the Everyday mixer,

Sound

The DASH is very loud. The reviews mentioned the unit is loud. It is. Not so loud to need earplugs, but definitely loud enough to prevent conversation.

Again, no comparison between the big name brands. My five quart model was not whisper quiet; but a conversation could be held in close proximity while the mixer was working. 

Construction

The look of the mixer is pleasant to the eye. Sleek and minimal. The exterior and buttons are plastic; the buttons are push buttons which do require a bit of labor to push.

Cost 

Apples to oranges stereotype comparison. $449 for the 5 qt namebrand stand mixer vs $49 for the Everyday mixer.

Performance

I have been experimenting with recipes I have made for years in the higher priced stand mixers; so does the Everyday get the job done. It has and it does. Is the process as streamlined or as quiet as the name brand stand mixers? No. 

The speed of the mixer is very very fast! At times the mixer does seem a bit out of control with the speed, but the stability has been solid thus far.

Reviews

The reviewers were correct. As a consumer the information is easily accessible so I was not surprised regarding the features. I highly recommend sifting through the reviews particularly if you are downsizing from the larger capacity big name brand to this mixer. 

I purchased the Everyday with the hopes it would feel a void between the large steel stand mixers and hand mixersf. The Everyday did mix dough and recipes which require a long mixing time such as meringue with ease.

  1. Excellent review! I love my hand mixer, but there are definitely times when I need my stand mixer. Like you, I need my stand mixer to be light weight since I move it to my work counter when needed, but store it elsewhere. I may need to give the Dash mixer a try. Serviceable and lightweight is most important in my kitchen!

  2. I had the large stand mixer for years, and missed it when it finally wore out. Since then, I have downsized in house and space size, so this Dash Everyday stand mixer would be perfect.

  3. We have a a 6 qt. stand mixer and it's always on the counter because of the size, there is really no place to store it. We use use it a lot and it would be a real pain to move it all the time. This Dash sounds like a perfect fit for keeping it on the counter of easily storing it. And, what a reasonable price for such a great kitchen tool. Thanks for the recommendation.

  4. I have owned my old KitchenAid K5A stand mixer for nearly 50 years and it’s still going strong. Thank goodness I bought most of the attachments, since that model is long obsolete. If I ever need to downsize, however, the lightweight, inexpensive Dash sounds like a great option.

  5. This sounds like an appliance that many people would really enjoy owning. Talking while mixing ingredients is not a turn off for me. I will have to look at this as an option in the future. Thanks for a great review!

  6. Two important features you touched upon; the weight (not too heavy) and can be stored under the counter - sounds ideal for our taste
