Although your kitchen may not be your priority when it comes to outfitting your pad, there are some kitchen appliances that everyone should have. One of those is KitchenAid’s stand mixer. First debuting in 1919, this mixer is adored by serious home cooks because it is one of the handiest appliances to have on hand. Whether you are an amateur gourmet or just bake a birthday cake once a year to impress your girlfriend, the stand mixer gives you a real edge in the kitchen.
KitchenAid’s stand mixer was already pretty stylish as you could get it in more than 85 different colors and finishes to coordinate with any kitchen. KitchenAid recently announced that they plan to release a special limited edition version of their stand mixer every year. For 2017, they released the Limited Edition Artisan Black Tie Stand Mixer. Inspired by 1930s design, this mixer is very good-looking. This is the first time that KitchenAid has made an entirely monochromic edition and represents a modern take on the classic design. Featuring an all-black cast-iron matte finish, a black 5-quart stainless steel bowl, a black coated beater and hook, the Black Tie Mixer would look great on just about any countertop. Premium materials like satin, black chrome and die-cast zinc add to the sophisticated look.
Since the “Black Tie” mixer is a limited edition, just 500 of these appliances will be released, according to KitchenAid. Each mixer comes with an individual number located on the band and a commemorative certificate of authenticity.
