Kitchen Aid Mixers

Kitchen aid!

still proudly made in the USA. NPR has a great story about the factory in Ohio.

The KitchenAid stand mixer is the tool of the trade of cooking, especially baking. At $200 and up, it's an investment in both money and counter space — and it's still being made in the U.S.

The mixers have been made in Greenville, Ohio, since 1941. At the KitchenAid Experience Center, the company's retail store in the town, every model of mixer and blender in every color can be seen.

People come to the store for cooking demonstrations; sometimes they arrive as if on a pilgrimage, walking through the front door in amazement. Downstairs there is a mixer museum, featuring, especially now that there's a movie about her, a cobalt blue K5A model that was owned, used and signed by Julia Child.

"Bon appetit," she inscribed on the bowl.

I absolutely love mine. Once you have a Kitchen Aid...you'll never have those weight lifter forearms from stirring again. It truly is a kitchen aide.
