The retro-looking Kitchen Aid stand mixer was first introduced in 1919, when the Machine Age was in full swing. It now has a reputation for being a sturdy and long-lasting kitchen tool, thanks to a powerful motor which can handle more than 3kg of dough. The mixer went through several design changes; finally resulting in Model K – the classic silhouette most are familiar with, designed by industrial designer Egmont Arens in 1937.


Its name is believed to have come from a housewife, who tested the mixer and exclaimed: “I don’t care what you call it, but I know it’s the best kitchen aid I’ve ever had!”
