Kitchenaid Stand Mixer in "antique green?"

LaureltQ Jan 29, 2011 09:35 AM

My mom bought this mixer in the late 90's. It's the Ultra-Power model with a 300 watt motor. It came with a 4.5 qt bowl as well as a much smaller one (3 qt?) I picked it out because it's the same color as the one Martha was using at the time. I received it as a gift from her after blowing through 2 artisan mixers in 3 years. It's held up much better than the others, despite taking more abuse than the other two combined.

What the heck is this color called and why can't I find photos of it online? I think it's fantastic, and although I'm fed up with KA's customer service, I'd like to find other appliances in this same color family to replace the red that I'm currently sporting. I believe that this particular mixer is one of the junky Kitchenaid built stand mixers, not one of the indestructible Hobarts.

Any human KA encyclopedias here?

It's not the "green," "pistachio," or the new robin's egg blue-green that Martha's been pimping lately.

    I just found this one on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/KitchenAid-Artisa...

    It's "green apple." What do you think?

      Upon googling the "green apple" color, it looks like that's a poor rendition of the color that I've seen online. The following link makes it look a LOT brighter, and the description says it's brighter than that too. Mine has a lot more blue in it than that photo.

        It's definitely not pistachio. A family friend has that color and the pistachio is way too light and doesn't have the same color tone.

              She did a line for Kitchenaid. I think it's discontinued.

          LaureltQ, I don't know the color, but have you tried posing the question on Kitchenaid's Facebook page? Try using the 'Discussions' tab.

          Many of the longtime posters of KA's Kitchen Conversations forum migrated over when KA moved to FB. They really are a knowledgeable bunch, plus, there is a rep from KA who answers questions - maybe they can look up your serial number to see if it has a color associated with it?

              The color on my monitor is surely different from yours... no way to tell from these pics alone what the color may be.
              Do you know the model # of the mixer? I'd try looking up what colors it was available in to help you narrow it down.

                Model number underneath mixer last two letters are color code

                Looks like jadite green maybe.
                Here is one on ebay.
                http://cgi.ebay.com/Martha-Stewart-Ja...

                That would go along with the "antique" part. A lot of people collect jadite glass. I love that color.

                  It looks A LOT like Jadeite! And it would make sense that it's a "martha stewart" color.

                  My color code is SG, though my few minutes of googling so far haven't turned up much that's been helpful.

                  Thanks for the suggestion to check the KA facebook group. The color is SEACREST GREEN. Of course googling that just gets me pages upon pages of Ryan Seacrest, but at least I know, and I ALSO know, to keep my eyes out for Jadite glass to accessorize my kitchen with!

                  Thanks you guys, you're awesome, as usual!

                    Here is a parts list with colors on page 3. The MG on the ebay mixer refers to Martha Green I guess.

                    Before Martha went to jail she had her own catalog. Kitchenaid manufactured her own mixer in seacrest green. You could only get it from her company. I purchased one after everything my family owned had been stolen (including my old white KA mixer) SInce then I've had to move 8 times and been divorced. I have been looking through boxes for two years in hopes of coming across my treasured KA. I can't even remember the quart size or wattage at this point. Anyway, I don'y recall any other appliances offered in that exact color except the mixer. =)

                      Hmmm. Looks like 1957 Chevy Bel Air to me.
