How This 100-Year-Old Appliance Transformed Home Cooking as We Know It

When I think of my mama’s kitchen, the first thing I picture is her pristine white KitchenAid stand mixer. I remember hunching over the mixer as I made my first batch of rainbow cupcakes, marveling at the bright ribbons of color streaking the batter. I remember how my mom stood by as I learned to whip cream cheese icings and kneaded my first bread dough, and that one time when I (unsuccessfully) experimented with homemade gnocchi. Later, I’d go on to work in a bakery, spending my high school afternoons baking shortbread and making royal icing in a mixer much like my mother’s. Baking has always been a part of the fabric of my family’s kitchens, and no matter the setting, there would always be a KitchenAid stand mixer, sitting regally on the countertop.
