  • 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!

    This stand mixer, as you’ll already know, is bestselling for good reason. It’s the helping hand you need in the kitchen – and now in a lovely new honey colour. Since this stand mixer is nice and large (because it needs to be, right?) it will make a statement on your kitchen worktop. It also comes in 14 different colours – plenty to choose from. There’s a reason these stand mixers are used on programmes such as The Great British Bake Off, and in busy kitchens all over the country. It also comes with a 4.8l bowl and a 3l bowl, as well as a pouring shield, six-wire whip, flat beater, flex edge beater and a dough hook. That’s pretty much all of the basics you’ll need to cook up a treat!
