A Range of Different Reds
The Kitchenaid stand mixers come in three different types of red. They are empire red, cinnamon and candy apple red. The empire red is the color most people would associate with the kitchenaid brand but the cinnamon is worth considering as it is a lovely deep warm red. The candy apple red color was brought into the range to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the kitchenaid manufacturing company. This vibrant red color could fit in very well with a bright kitchen color scheme. Either way whatever color you choose, the machine will look fantastic as you place it center stage on your kitchen counter-top.
Different Sizes and Ranges of Machine
There are numerous types of KitchenAid stand mixers which come in a range of different sizes from 4 1/2 quart to a 6 quart mixer which they call their professional range. From personal experience I would always go for the largest you can afford and house. I can assure you that you would not regret this decision.
The KitchenAid stand mixer also comes with a cover, please I beg you don’t buy one. I’m going to stick my neck out here and say either don’t buy one or if you have one put in the trash. Why would anyone pay $300 for a beautiful piece of engineering and an iconic design and then put a nasty quilted cover over it yuck!! Sorry hope I haven’t offended you.
