Open Thread: Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer

This post contains affiliate links.

When fall arrives, Aldi gets serious about stocking baking supplies you may need for upcoming holidays like Thanksgiving. Over the years, we’ve seen Aldi sell several types of stand mixers, ranging from cheap to mid-priced to expensive. The most recent mixer in stores is the mid-priced Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer.

What We Know:

Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer 2019

Aldi’s Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer sold for $59.99 in 2019. This is Aldi’s mid-range stand mixer, and it’s been around for a few years. Aldi sold a similar Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer for $59.99 in October of 2018 and October of 2017. The internet went a little gaga over Aldi’s mid-priced mixer in 2017, in part because it’s a lot cheaper than most other stand mixers of its type.

On the cheaper end of things, Aldi also sold a more basic Ambiano 4.6-Quart Stand Mixer for $29.99 in 2018 and for $24.99 in 2017. We own a slightly smaller 2016 model Ambiano 4-Quart Stand Mixer from Aldi. I try not to go overboard with carbs and don’t do a lot of hard-core baking, so it works for my family’s modest needs, which includes making banana bread and pumpkin bread. I mostly use it as a handheld mixer without the stand. Read our review of that mixer here

In the upper price range, Aldi also sold an Ambiano Professional 4.8-Quart Stand Mixer for $129.99 in November of 2018. We don’t have any experience with that model.

Going back to the 2019 Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer (product code 98969), its features include:

  • Six speed settings with pulse function
  • A beater, dough hook, and whisk
  • A choice of Red or Gray
  • A detachable splash guard with opening to add ingredients
  • A Stainless steel 4-quart bowl
  • Planetary mixing action
  • Tilting-head mechanism
  • Removable parts that are dishwasher safe
  • Nonslip rubber feet

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t tried the Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer, so we can’t speak to how well it works. We don’t know who makes the stand mixer or what kind of warranty the 2019 mixer comes with, but the 2018 model had a three-year warranty.

  1. I went to Aldi’s today to buy this stand mixer and was totally disappointed by the size of the bowl. It is tiny compared to my 20 year old mixer that has a 7qt. bowl. I looked online and you can buy a 4qt stand mixer less than $60.

    So I guess i will be waiting for the right offer!

    I bought one and it looks fine for occasional use, but it seems that they changed whisk designs from last year and the whisk attachment won’t slide all the way up and lock in place. I spoke with customer service and they’re going to get back to me.

    • Is the attachment issue with just the whisk or the dough hook and beater too?

      Have you used it at all?

      Generally it is a very simple spring loaded mechanism. You push it in and twist and the pin slides in a slot to lock it. To unhook push in and twist in the opposite direction.

    Well yeah. The other two are metal and work fine. The whisk body and shaft are plastic and won’t go far up the shaft so that’s possible.

    • If Ambiano does not replace the defective attachment, is it possible to use an aftermarket whisk available at Amazon. I think they have a few metal ones for $6-7??

  4. How do you get the bowl off ? Or is it attached .That is my only problem!!! I dont do alot of baking except at Christmas. Please Please answer soon .

  5. I purchased this mixer from Aldi to give my kitchenaid mixer a bread. I like this little mixer and I especially like having the handle on the bowl. However, there’s something wrong with this as it seems to make a “clacking” noise and the top part of the mixer which does all the work is not all that steady. I’m going to speak to Aldi about replacing it. I don’t want a refund, I like this mixer and would very much like it replaced, I think this one is defective

  6. I bought the product for Aldi in 2019 but the manual did not come in the box. However, it advertised on the box that it should have an owners manual. Sure would like to know where to get one from. It is now 2020 and I am just now attempting to use it to mix bread.

  7. I’ve used this stand mixer a handful of times in a couple months and the whisk attachment broke at the top where it attaches to the spinning mechanism. The plastic dust guard also cracked the second time I washed it

  8. Where can i buy a fanbelt replacement of my classic ambiano mixer
