KitchenAid unveils new colors

Kitchen Aid mixers

If you’ve been eyeing a new stand mixer, you’ll want to pay attention to the latest press release from KitchenAid. The company has announced that it is adding four new colors to its already expansive palette of 86 available selections. All four are debuting in the increasingly popular matte finish. 

First up is Avocado Cream. If that conjures images of the 1970s, know that this is not your mother’s avocado green. The new color “offers an earthy yet contemporary approach to a more traditional pastel hue, perfect for natural kitchen finishes and countertops,” according to KitchenAid. Avocado Cream will be available on the Artisan Mini stand mixers.  The second food-themed color, Milkshake, is a warm off-white and will be available on the Artisan Series 5 Quart stand mixer and Pro 600 Series 6 Quart. 

The new deep tones, Black Violet and  Ink Blue, will also be available on the Artisan Series 5 Quart mixers. The deep purple of the former is a toned-down take on the brighter purple stand mixer colors currently available. Ink Blue is a trendy neutral that isn’t quite as stark as Matte Black but still blends in to nearly any decor. The matte finishes are also finding their way to other KitchenAid countertop appliances. 

What do you think of the new colors?

    I'm happy with my candy apple red and black mixers. But if Kitchen Aid wanted to send you and me one to try out – I wouldn't say no.

    Meh. Not excited.

    Since mine are incredibly neutral white (2) and nickel pearl. I think they should send me the Ink Blue or Black Violet to check out. I mean, they kinda owe me one since my first KA mixer was my fav cobalt but it seized up while making pasta. They offered to upgrade to a pro model — but the pros only came in white then, so I had to give up my beautiful blue.

    They're pretty, but, I'll stick with white.

    I like the glossy colors better than matte, personally. Mine is cobalt because it reminds me of the one on my grandfather's counter.

    LOL, since I have an older white one that will last for eternity, I tend not to get excited about new colors.
