Bread dough kneading is a messy process, but using a stand mixer can halve the time and effort involved. A stand mixer is a kitchen essential, and today's models are versatile, featuring attachments for kneading, mixing and whipping.

While stand mixers can make bread kneading a breeze, kneading by hand is still the best method for making bread at home. Kneading bread dough by hand helps develop the gluten, which is necessary for bread to rise. Kneading by hand also develops the bread's texture, making it softer and chewier.

Kneading by hand is hard work, which is why we test mixers in the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab. We evaluate mixers for ease of use, including how easy they are to clean, how comfortable they are to hold and how much weight they can knead. We also evaluate mixers for performance, including how fast they knead bread dough, how smooth the dough texture is and how much dough they knead. These are the best mixers for kneading bread dough:
