KitchenAid’s Newest Mixer Color Takes the Cake

September  6, 2018

KitchenAid, the brand that's launched millions of home cooks' flour-filled dreams, kicks off its 100th birthday celebrations with limited-edition products in a cool new shade called "Misty Blue."

Misty Blue, a pleasing, soft hue with just a hint of green, is gracing the iconic stand mixer with two different bowl choices in addition to a freestanding range. The color's meant to evoke one of the very first KitchenAid mixer colors ever introduced since the company's start in 1919.

Now back to those special bowl choices: The limited-edition Heritage Artisan Series Stand Mixer will come with either a white-coated stainless steel bowl, as shown above, or a white ceramic one reminiscent of vintage hobnail bowls, as seen below. (Swoon!)

The steel bowl model is currently on sale for $399.99 while the ceramic bowl version is $499.99 on KitchenAid's site. The 36-inch, 6-burner freestanding range and oven (with convection capability) will go on sale this fall, retailing for $7,699.

Too busy staring at my favourite tile. Love seeing it as a backsplash in the burn baby burn pic.

So pretty! Mine is apple green. I loved it when I got it, but it feels a little dated now.

Love the color. It's similar to the color in my daughter's room. My Kitchen Aid mixer is Empire Red. I call it "Big Red" :)

Mine's a vintage "cream"—but the accents in my kitchenette are close to this Misty Blue! If only I had that oven...

It's a beautiful color. Mine is the black with stainless bowl. Matches my kitchen appliances and adds a touch of class!

Love that combo! Is your black stand matte or glossy? Either way, bet it looks great in your lovely kitchen. :)
