Since 1919, KitchenAid appliances have been a fixture on millions of kitchen countertops. Though the ubiquitous stand mixer is perhaps the most well known item produced by this legendary company, their product line includes numerous other home appliances, to include ovens, dishwashers and refrigerators. All of these appliances share a trait common to products made by this company; they are simple in design, highly effective in executing the tasks they were made for and they are very easy to use.
KitchenAid has always stood at the forefront of appliance innovation and has introduced many new inventions and products over nine decades of continuous operations. Starting with the famous stand mixer series in 1919, the company has continued to meet the needs of cooks around the world and has introduced such appliances as the dishwasher, which it unveiled in 1946 and the high speed home blender in 1991. During the many years in between these notable dates, the company rolled out a never ending stream of new products or greatly enhanced models of existing kitchen appliances and tools.
Today the product line offered by KitchenAid is vast and encompasses most aspects of household cooking, food preparation and storage, cooking tools and various other products used in the home or on backyard patios to prepare meals for hungry families. While the stand mixer is still a best seller, the company has earned a reputation for producing high quality stoves, microwave ovens, trash compactors, toasters, coffee makers and many other countertop appliances.
As you'd expect, these products are all backed by a full one year warranty and you may also purchase additional service plans that extend coverage for one or more years. The company has a solid reputation for repairing or replacing broken or defective products and quite honestly, most of their products are built to last for decades and most simply do not break!
You can find KitchenAid appliances at various local stores and on various internet stores. We recommend that you purchase all large appliances from a local store as it makes delivery and scheduled service and maintenance a bit easier to arrange. For smaller appliances we feel that the best bargains are to be found online, where the heavy competition among merchants creates a buyer's market and produces some amazing deals!
Wherever you decide to buy from, you can rest assured that when you purchase a KitchenAid Appliance you are buying over 90 years of tradition and customer oriented, fully functional products that are built in most cases to last a lifetime!
