KitchenAid Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, 5 qt Empire Red

Similar to Cuisinart, which deservedly dominates the food processor category, KitchenAid stands for stand mixer. The technology used in stand mixers was first developed in the early 1900s. It was Hobart KitchenAid that introduced the electric mixer to American markets.

A stand mixer is the baker’s ultimate assistant. The automated mixer has been saving bakers’ biceps and forearms for over a century. The stand mixer is not only super useful, it is also an ultra-sleek countertop appliance. Few small appliances have the honor of taking up this valuable counter space.

Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor

Start strong with this kitchen staple. How did people manage without a food processor? Many can answer this because it wasn’t invented until 1971. Carl Sontheimer introduced the food processor to the American public as the Cuisinart, a portmanteau of “cooking” and “art.”

The Cuisinart brand now makes many useful and reliable kitchen tools, but their food processor’s generification is almost as common as “Kleenex”; if you’re asking for the “Cuisinart”, you’re definitely not asking for a cookie sheet. Offer ease.
