The KitchenAid Stand Mixer - Best Kitchen Present Ever!

Did you know that the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer comes in 25 colours? That's 25 different ways a stand mixer can beautify your home.

Not only does the Artisan's 5-quart bowl give you 9 cups of flour power for the best baking of your life, but you can do it in style with the mixer that best matches your personality.

KitchenAid has recently launched Colourology.ca - a website designed to explore the unique personalities of colour by using a personality quiz to determine which KitchenAid Stand Mixer is right for you.

Each Artisan mixer comes with a Pouring Shield - to prevent splashing. Dough Hook - for bread doughs and such. Flat Beater - for cake and muffin batters and frostings. And Wire Whip - for whipping egg whites and cream and other delicate foods. Think of all you can bake up with these beauties!

Whether for yourself or that special baker in your life - the KitchenAid Stand Mixer is the ultimate holiday present. 

KitchenAid even has a highly successful awareness and fund raising campaign, Cook for the Cure.

Cook for the Cure presented by KitchenAid is your opportunity to turn entertaining into fundraising! Since 2002, over $ 2.1 million has been raised for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation by KitchenAid Canada from sponsorship of Cook for the Cure and through proceeds from their pink product collection.

The next time you host a get-together, make it a Cook for the Cure party. Invite your guests to make a donation in support of the CBCF. It doesn’t matter if the donation is big or small, as all proceeds will go towards research, education, community care and advocacy, creating a future without breast cancer. As well, KitchenAid Canada will donate $50* to the funds that you raise per party once your funds have been submitted to the Foundation. It’s that easy!


As well, all of KitchenAid's pink products raise money to help fight cancer. Read more about Cook for the Cure here - http://www.cookforthecure.ca/

The Artisan comes with the Wire Whip, Dough Hook, Flat Beater and Pouring Shield.
On top of the ones already included in the KA mixers, you can also buy special KA attachments for making pasta, sausage, baby food, grinding grains..... What can't you do with a Stand Mixer?

I have no idea. These things are bulletproof, in my experience, and are the perfect gift for the baker and cook in your life. A KitchenAid Stand Mixer is a shining jewel on your counter, as well as the workhorse of your kitchen. And, might I say... I love my KA mixer like family.
