Among the many exhibitors at the International Home and Housewares Show, by far, the most impressive display was what I like to call the “Wall of KitchenAid”. Sitting 4 rows high and over 15 mixers wide was a display of every color imaginable of KitchenAid mixers. As many of you already know, among my top list of brands that I will forever remain loyal to is KitchenAid.
My stand mixer has been my lifeline in the kitchen for several years, given to me as a Christmas gift from my husband. While white wasn’t my first choice, it was still a gift that I will treasure for years to come. Although I think he had ulterior motives that starts with Peanut Butter and ends with Cookies.
90th Anniversary Model
The true beauty among the many mixers along the wall of KitchenAid was the 90th Anniversary Edition Stand Mixer that is only available in a stunning Candy Apple Red and includes a glass mixing and measuring bowl. Not unlike other available models, this one offers the Power Hub for additional attachments but is set apart by the 90th Anniversary logo.
I would by lying if I said I didn’t wipe a bit of drool from the corner of my mouth when I saw this. The clear mix and measure bowl is a feature I wish was available for all mixers as I can imagine it would make the prep time that much faster and one less measuring cup to dirty up in the process.
Cook for the Cure with KitchenAid
As part of its ongoing Cook for the Cure® initiative, which has raised $7 million for the fight against breast cancer, KitchenAid is offering a selection of pink kitchen essentials that generate donations of up to $50 each to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. These include everything from pink silicone spatulas and mixing bowls to 5-Quart Stand Mixers available in all pink or white with a pink trim band.
While browsing the many products from KitchenAid on display, one set even more eye catching than the wall of mixers was the section of KitchenAid products dedicated to the Cook for the Cure. I can’t imagine that there’s anything more satisfying in the kitchen than whipping up your favorite cake batter or butter cream frosting and knowing you’re doing it with a product that contributed to the fight against breast cancer.
If a KitchenAid purchase is your near future, I urge you to explore the Cook for the Cure Pink Collection before making any final decisions.
