BENTON HARBOR, Mich., Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its introduction in 1919, KitchenAid has been an icon in the kitchen, and today the brand debuts the heritage-inspired Misty Blue color in select 100 Year Celebration Limited Edition products across countertop and major appliances. With this launch, KitchenAid is inviting passionate home cooks to share in its celebration, honoring nearly 100 years of making.
Misty Blue is a soft blue color with a hint of green that is reminiscent of one of the first KitchenAid Stand Mixer colors ever introduced. This custom color is available in the Limited Edition Heritage Artisan® Series Model K 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, as well as a 36" 6-Burner Dual Fuel Freestanding, Commercial-Style Range. While honoring the roots of KitchenAid and its ascendancy as a premier color authority, the select Misty Blue products reflect the brand's continued commitment to designing tools that help home chefs get the most out of cooking.
"Misty Blue brings back a classic style that will spark nostalgia across generations, while also continuing to feed inspiration in the kitchen," said Nikki Lockett, U.S. Marketing Leader for KitchenAid Small Appliances. "This launch not only commemorates the brand's past – but it also celebrates all the passionate home cooks who have inspired our innovation for the last 100 years."
The stand mixer is available in two different models: One with a ceramic bowl with flex edge beater and one with a white-coated stainless-steel bowl. Both models will include unique limited-edition features: a heritage-inspired KitchenAid® logo, and a custom Power Hub cover celebrating 100 years of KitchenAid.
The 36" 6-Burner Dual Fuel Freestanding, Commercial-Style Range features a gas cooktop with electric oven, bringing the tools of restaurant chefs into residential kitchens.
