KitchenAid is a name that is synonymous with quality, durability and old-fashioned craftsmanship since its inception as a company in 1919. In short, great cooks know they can trust their KitchenAid stand mixer, blender, chopper, hand mixer, food processor, toaster or KitchenAid stand mixer attachments to help them make great meals and work as well from the first use to the thousandth use.
