A Future Purchase that Must Be Made...

I have fought the urge long enough...I want to buy a Kitchenaid stand mixer. These beautiful & colorful mixer have been around since 1955 and finally seeing one this afternoon at Williams Sonoma I felt the pang in my chest of "I Want One". I guess my Kitchen Aid clock started ticking, hehe.

I have a mixer that used to be Mother's and I swear she's had that thing since I was a lil girl. At least 20 or so years if not more. It does the job good for my cupcake classes but it's time to breakout the new.

The price is approximately $300. That's not terrible, but when your watching ever penny to save money it's going to be a mini feat because you can't just buy the mixer...there are attachments.I would love the pasta making one and the ice cream one.

Well, I'm definitely going to be watching the store circulars and watching the online overstock shops. If I don't get one now, this maybe my "Day after Thanksgiving" splurge piece. Ooo if I buy it at Kohl's on a weekend where there is a 30% coupon AND Extra-Bucks for every $50 spent, buying the mixer at $300 wouldn't be that bad. Hmmm...decisions decisions.. =)

This is the one I'd like to buy: 

So pretty... =)

Do you have  Kitchen Aid Mixer? Is it worth the hype or are their horror stories?? 

I'd love to hear...


  1. I don't have one since I don't cook too much but I love looking at them! They are beautiful! Since your hand in the kitchen, I think it would be a good investment. That one you chose is so pretty!

  2. OMG I want all the attachments! I got a mixer for Christmas and I use it for everything!

  3. I have one and I love it. I don't know how you have managed without one for so long. It will make making the icing for the cupcakes even easier.

    I have the Ice Cream attachment and the pasta attachment, so if you get one and know you want to make ice cream or pasta one day, you can always borrow mine (you just need to get the ice cream maker a few days in advance so it has time to chill).


  4. How i'd love a mixer. I currently battle through using my arm and a hand mixer. Because we're saving the are out of our price range atm, although even if we weren't i've always wondered why mixers are so darn expensive.

  5. I left mine back home. Miss it so very much.

  6. I have a red one and I love it dearly. It's so good:) Btw: I adore the colour you chose. Muah

  7. I love them all lined up like that! I have a light green one and I love it!

  8. My mom bought me a KitchenAid for Christmas and I've only used it once. But she just bought me the ice cream maker attachment for my bday and I'm super excited to use it!!
