Kitchenaid Stand Mixer color choices
I am looking into finally buying myself a stand mixer. I have been staring at the colors on websites for months, but just don't feel comfortable making a choice based on the online images. They look different at every site! Monitors are so unreliable...
I'm willing to do some leg work for this, but I would prefer to stay in eastern MA and Northshore/Southeastern NH areas. Feel free to recommend stuff south of Boston too though! I have a couple of months till the intended purchase date.
My question is; where have you seen different colors of stand mixers in stock at stores? What colors were there? So far I've seen green apple, empire red, buttercup, cobalt blue, and I think the blue willow color on a blender. (All in Keene, NH) (I am not interested in metals, black, or white.)
The greatest find would be a store that had more than one blue, yellow, or red side by side. Especially gloss cinnamon and cornflower. I'm afraid gloss cinnamon will look brown or muddy or the cornflower will look really pale in person... does anyone have one of those that they can comment on or compare to a common item/brand label?
Thanks in advance for the help!
Mine is grape color KA Artisan series and agree with Cassoulady that if you plan on using it a lot get a stronger one.
Mine struggles when I'm mixing broiche and gets hot when making batches of homemade marshmallows.
I believe awhile back I did see quite a bit of them on display at the Sear at South Shore Plaza. Wonder if you can call Sears, Target, William Sonoma etc to see which one they carry.
Good luck in your decision.

Got mine in the very sexy non-shiny black color. I think they call it Imperial black.
I would second giving Williams Sonoma a try. I think they have a few colors in the store. I bought my mixer at a Lowes a few years ago... don't remember if they had multiple colors there though. It was a special order discount thing at the time.
If you plan on using yours a lot, either for heavy duty mixing or using the attachments a lot, I suggest getting the higher powered one. I had the Artisam KA mixer, used it weekly for six years and it literally went up in flames a few weeks ago while using the pasta attachement.
