KitchenAid Artisan Black Tie Mixer

Feb 28, 2017

A stand mixer is a must-have for anyone who is even moderately serious about lording over their kitchen. And those from KitchenAid are some of the best ever created. They’re reliable, effective, and – while not cheap – definitely offer the kind of long-term quality that makes them well worth their price tag. The one downside: depending on your kitchen’s style, they have the potential to be eyesores.

Well, KitchenAid has finally decided to do something about that by introducing a new version of their classic stand mixer. The Artisan Black Tie gives you all the same mixing capabilities, but it comes in an all-black package that looks stellar in any modern-styled kitchen. And it isn’t just the die-cast zinc body that’s black; the stainless steel 5-quart mixing bowl, flat beater, and dough hook are all black-coated as well. And you still get 10-speed mixing, the option to change out hub attachments on the fly, and the signature no-fuss tilting head. But only 500 of these murdered-out $1,000 kitchen appliances are being made, so you’d better act fast. [Purchase]
