Growing up, the sound of the KitchenAid Mixer whirring was a familiar and welcome sign that sweets were in my future. In any household of elaborate baked goods, the KitchenAid is an indispensable, almost magical kitchen appliance that can be used for almost anything with the right attachment. Once you get one, you never go back to an old-fashioned hand mixer. While it's universally agreed upon that the KitchenAid is amazing, it turns out that cooks and bakers across the country have different preferences for their KitchenAid Stand Mixer colors!
KitchenAid Stand Varieties
For those unfamiliar with the wonderful KitchenAid, it consists of a countertop stand, a mixing bowl that hooks into this, and a series of different attachments. The dough hook is used for bread dough, while the beater is great for mixing cookie dough. There is also a food grinder, a juicer, a spiralizer, and so much more. These stainless steel appliances are beloved for their versatility and convenience, and they come in many different design series. The classic plus, quart tilt-head stand mixer, mini mixer and bowl lift stand mixer are all popular choices, but you really can't go wrong.
If you are in the KitchenAid club, you probably know about the many color options available. There are more colors than you can think of, from pink to aqua sky to espresso. Many colors are food-based, like pistachio, almond cream, and boysenberry, while others like buttercup, blue willow, and boysenberry are based on the natural world.
The KitchenAid was the first appliance to make brightly colored products, and it started a trend! There are now many small appliances that come in different colors, along with toasters and even large appliances like refrigerators. Thanks to KitchenAid, many kitchens are full of bright, vibrant appliances that bring color into the kitchen!
