As of yesterday afternoon, I am the very proud owner of my very own KitchenAid stand mixer! I found it on craigslist in excellent condition so I didn't have to pay the normal $300-$400 that these babies normally cost. In asking how old it was, I was happy to learn that it was originally purchased in the 80's. Now, I know that doesn't sound great, but in actuality, a lot of KitchenAid customers have been saying that the motors in older models are so much more durable than current models, so when I learned it was from the 80's I was ecstatic. It came with the standard 3 attachments and it's this beautiful pale yellow color that I adore. Now I suppose my only problem is deciding what to bake first!
