If you're a baker or simply a lover of gorgeous kitchen appliances you are definitely going to want to get your hands on KitchenAid's new retro inspired stand mixer the company is launching to celebrate their 100th anniversary.
Most are aware of the iconic KitchenAid stand mixer even if you've never owned one. They are a staple on most bridal registries and come in a variety of colors that makes it not only one of the most functional and practical kitchen appliances, but one of the most attractive as well. KitchenAid offers a variety of their stand mixers in a plethora of colors ranging from candy apple red to champagne to sea glass to blueberry.
In honor of their 100th anniversary of being one of the most iconic kitchen appliance brands in the world, KitchenAid is releasing their Limited Edition Heritage Artisan® Series Model K 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer in the custom color misty blue.
The soft blue color with just a hint of green is said to be reminiscent of one of KitchenAid's first stand mixer colors ever introduced, they announced in a press release. While the color is also a nostalgic look at the brand's past, it's also a gorgeous addition to the entire KitchenAid line.
“Misty Blue brings back a classic style that will spark nostalgia across generations, while also continuing to feed inspiration in the kitchen,” said Nikki Lockett, U.S. Marketing Leader for KitchenAid Small Appliances. “This launch not only commemorates the brand’s past – but it also celebrates all the passionate home cooks who have inspired our innovation for the last 100 years.”
There will be two models of the limited edition mixer available. The first model will feature a white coated stainless steel bowl, featured in the picture above. The second model will include a ceramic bowl and will also come with a flex edge beater, shown below.
In addition, both of these stunning new models will feature a heritage-inspired KitchenAid® logo, and a custom Power Hub cover celebrating 100 years of KitchenAid that will be unique to these limited edition stand mixers. KitchenAid will also release 20 numbered units of the ceramic bowl exclusively on KitchenAid.com, so collectors may want to keep their eyes out for that.
Limited edition comes at a price though, with the stainless steel bowl stand mixer retailing for $519.99 and the ceramic bowl option at $649.99 (although they both seem to be currently on sale on the KitchenAid website.)
If you think the stand mixers are gorgeous, KitchenAid is also releasing a 36” 6-Burner dual fuel freestanding, commercial-style range that features a gas cooktop with electric oven in the limited edition misty blue as well.
KitchenAid has said the range will be available this fall for the retail price of $7699. If that price is a bit too much for your budget but you'd love to have a piece of KitchenAid's 100th anniversary products in your kitchen, the misty blue stand mixers look like they'd be a great addition to your kitchen appliance arsenal.
