If there’s one kitchen splurge that’s always going to be worth it for any and every home cook, it’s a stand mixer. Not just for bakers, a stand mixer can help juice lemons, shred meat, whip potatoes, and more. Of course, it can also make buttercream frosting, mix up batter, knead dough, and whip cream. You get the point, though: Stand mixers are helpful workhorses that are always ready to lend a hand.
Without a doubt, our favorite stand mixers come from KitchenAid. Truly, they’re without compare. Incredibly powerful, durable, and available in tons of gorgeous colors, a KitchenAid does it all and has it all.
This absolutely stunning stand mixer has a sand-colored, matte body (which “mirrors sand in an hourglass,” the company says) and a studded, three-dimensional black bowl (although you can opt to buy it with one that’s stainless steel). “Together, the pair mark the passage of time through the marriage of light and shadow, celebrating the many different occasions that bring makers to the kitchen,” KitchenAid says.
“Inspiration isn’t bound by time, but rather cultivated by a series of moments,” explains Jon Bellante, KitchenAid global marketing director, in a press release. “Light & Shadow is a reflection of how creativity can arise in the kitchen without warning and manifest itself in the form of a brunch spread for friends, an afternoon snack or a nighttime dinner party — the possibilities are endless.”
We love the unconventional look of this stand mixer. It’s refreshing, an incredible statement piece, and like nothing we’ve seen — and it makes us want to bake a cake or whip up a meringue.
You can buy the stand mixer, starting today, on KitchenAid’s website. The black, studded bowl is available exclusively with this limited-edition stand mixer ($549.99). However, like we said, you can also buy the matte, sand-colored mixer with a stainless steel bowl ($449.99), if studs aren’t your thing.
