We're OBSESSED with KitchenAid's colour of the year for 2021 – and it has already sold out (for now)

It's the perfect pop of colour we never knew our kitchen needed...

The classic KitchenAid has had a lovely makeover for 2021 – and we are loving it.  This stand mixer, along with the Kitchenaid Artisan Blender, both have an all-new look in the colour that is named honey. This golden-orange hue is said to be a nod towards happier and sweeter times – the sweetness we experience when coming together with friends and family. What do we think? It's a lovely pop of colour to add to an otherwise neutral kitchen – we'll have one of each, please!

It comes in 12 colours in total, and included in the box you'll get a 1.4l ribbed glass jar – the perfect size for families. With a compact footprint due to its nature, this blender can still take centre stage in your kitchen, especially if you choose it in a striking colour. The new honey one, for instance...
