KitchenAid Color of the Year
In 2018, KitchenAid introduced the ‘Color of the Year’ campaign. This yearly event sees KitchenAid release a new and exciting color every year to liven up our kitchen countertops. If you are curious about the previous year’s colors, here’s what you missed.
The Most Popular KitchenAid Colors
Where do you even begin picking your favorite color out of an endless sea of color? It’s a daunting task, believe me.
Thankfully, KitchenAid has helped to narrow down our search by discovering what the most popular stand mixer color is.
In 2020, the company conducted a study consisting of over 5000 customers, 100 from each state, to uncover what America’s favorite KitchenAid color is.
They discovered that the most popular color was Blue Velvet. This calming, warm matte blue is a favorite in 18 states, followed by Aqua Sky and Kyoto Glow as the second and third favorites in another 18 states combined.
Here are the Top 9 most popular KitchenAid colors.
Didn’t find the color of your KitchenAid dreams on this list? Well, lucky you, because I have plenty more colors to show you!
Choosing the Best KitchenAid Mixer Color for your Kitchen
A KitchenAid stand mixer isn’t just an appliance. It’s a centerpiece in your kitchen you want people to marvel at. A KitchenAid color is also an expression of you that showcases your personality.
After all, you’ve invested in a quality appliance that is going to last you many years. It makes sense that you’d want to choose the color that best suits your personality and the theme of your kitchen.
Fortunately, with such an extensive range of colors at KitchenAid, you’re sure to find one that speaks to you. My advice is to take your time, do your research and look around until you find the perfect color for your kitchen.
Every KitchenAid Mixer Color
By my estimate, there have been over 90 KitchenAid mixer colors, and of course, this number will continue to grow.
Many of the colors are available in a variety of mixer models, although the Artisan mixer has the largest selection of colors by a long way. In terms of availability, however, some colors were released as limited editions so it’s unlikely you will be able to buy all of them. Sorry!
Nevertheless, with such a large selection available, I guarantee there’s a color that will match your kitchen palette. If you can find it, that is.
And there lies the biggest problem. Although KitchenAid has an amazing array of colors, there isn’t really a definitive list where you can browse all these colors and marvel at their amazing selection.
After endless weeks of research and several liters of coffee, I have found every single KitchenAid color available for you right now.
Every Color By Model
Artisan Mini Colors
The Artisan Mini is the smallest out of all of the KitchenAid models. It’s perfect for small households or if you don’t have a lot of counter space. There are currently nine different colors available for the Artisan Mini that can be purchased right now. You have your whites, silvers, blacks, blues and reds in different shades and hues so you’re bound to find the perfect color for your kitchen.
The Artisan tilt-head stand mixer is by far the most popular KitchenAid model with around 40 different colors available. You can find niche colors like Lavender Cream and Scorched Orange, as well as classic shades such as Onyx Black or White. You have a combination of soft matte pinks, bright glossy reds and metallic silver hues to choose from.
Artisan Design Colors
The Artisan Design is similar to the Artisan 5 with an upgraded bowl and heftier pricer tag. It currently comes in 4 different colors. In 2022, KitchenAid released their Blossom stand mixer, inspired by the fresh herbs and natural products used in cooking and baking. With a soft thyme hue and a hammered copper bowl, this color is perfect for adding a touch of nature to your kitchen.
Deluxe & Classic Colors
The Classic and Deluxe series are a more affordable version of the Artisan 5, but are quite similar to the Artisan model when it comes to specs and bowl size. In terms of their color selection, however, they are quite limited. The Classic and Deluxe currently have two colors each.
Professional 5 Colors
The first of the bowl-lift models is the Professional 5. With a five-quart capacity and a bowl-lift mechanism, this powerful stand mixer currently comes in six different colors. You have your classic Silver and Off-White, with a dramatic Empire Red and cool Aqua Blue.
Professional 600 Colors
The Professional 600 is the second in the professional range and currently has 6 colors available. Choose from a sophisticated White, classic Silver or eye-catching Red.
Pro Line Series 7 Colors
The 7-quart stand mixer with redesigned premium touchpoints is the newest KitchenAid stand mixer model. With 11 speeds, a bowl-lift mechanism, and a flex-edge beater, this mixer is perfect for those who regularly entertain and make large batches of food. The Pro Line Series 7 and the 7-quart mixer currently both have 4 colors available each.
Commercial Series Colors
The strongest KitchenAid stand mixer fit for commercial use is the Commercial Series. It has a capacity of 8-quart and can tackle any job your professional kitchen throws at it. The commercial currently has 4 different colors.
Every KitchenAid Color Palette
White is one of the most common neutral colors that not only look great complimenting a primary or secondary color palette but also look amazing if you are going for a more minimal kitchen design.
When it comes to your KitchenAid, there are 10 different whites to choose from. This ranges from the classic ‘White’, one of their best-selling colors, to newer additions like almond cream.
Fun Fact: When KitchenAid released the H-5, the first commercially available stand mixer the company made, white was the original KitchenAid color. Their color range started to expand in 1955, with the introduction of 5 colors; pink, copper, chrome, yellow and green.
Silver & Gray
Silver and Gray are both very neutral colors that will look great in just about any kitchen. If you have other appliances in your kitchen that use silver or gray accents, then this will be the perfect addition to your countertop.
If you are looking for something that will complement stainless steel, then Contour Silver is a brilliant choice, it is also one of America’s top 10 most popular colors. If you want something a little more unusual, then Metallic Chrome is about as crazy as it gets! There are currently around 6 silver and gray shades.
Onyx Black is the most popular black KitchenAid stand mixer ever. It has a high gloss finish and looks elegant on every kitchen counter and offers a real contrast if you have a lot of white in your kitchen.
That said, if you are looking for something a bit more exciting, there’s plenty to choose from. You can opt for Cast Iron which has a really unique rough texture to it.
When it comes to the red palettes, there’s one tint that stands out above the rest: Empire Red. It’s KitchenAid’s answer to Ferrari Rosso Corsa (you know, that classic Ferrari red color). Between the classic White and Onyx Black, Empire Red is up there an iconic KitchenAid color. Hell, it’s even the color of their logo!
That’s not to say it’s your only red option though, of course, it isn’t! You can opt for something a little more sweet and vibrant like Candy Apple.
Orange and Yellow
We have already spoken about Honey, the color to be added to the KitchenAid collection in 2021. With its addition, it brought your current selection of orange stand mixers to a staggering…two.
If yellow is your color, you might be slightly disappointed with your selection. Currently, there is only one yellow KitchenAid stand mixer to choose from. By KitchenAid standards, that’s pretty tame! In fact, this is the most limited of any palette.
You already know about Birds of Paradise (which is gorgeous) but with another 4 pinks to choose from, there is a great nice range of various tints and hues here.
My personal favorite is Dried Rose, it’s slightly darker and a bit moodier than some of the brighter pinks available. There’s also a matching replacement bowl in this color which would look absolutely amazing!
Purple is a great choice if you want to add a splash of color, without the high impact of yellow or pink. Although there are only two KitchenAid purple colors to choose from. On the lighter end of the spectrum, you have Lavender Cream, with a creamy and glossy finish. On the other side, you have Beetroot which became last year’s newest addition.
There are currently three green stand mixers in the Kitchenaid range. Pistachio definitely has a special place in my heart. It’s not as bright as matcha and brings a nice warm and glossy finish to any kitchen.
Last, but certainly not least, is the blues. Not only is ‘Blue Velvet’ America’s favorite color, with seven different varieties, the blue KitchenAid stand mixers also have by far the largest selection of any palette.
Refurbished KitchenAid Colors
If you’re looking for rare or discontinued KitchenAid Stand Mixer Colors, then you’re in luck. KitchenAid has refurbished mixers that are available for purchase at a much lower price than the originals.
If you have your eye on a discontinued KitchenAid mixer color, have a look at their refurbished section on their website. Here, you can find refurbished stand mixers that need a new loving home in colors that you won’t find in their normal range any longer.
Hurry! Refurbished stand mixers go quickly, and once that color is gone, it’s gone forever.
Enough of the chit-chat, let’s admire all the beautiful KitchenAid Mixer Colors.
