My New Toy

Ain't she purdee????

My new Kitchen Aide Pro mixer.  

And in my favorite color RED!

I'd been thinking about a new one for a little while now.  My old girl has been working just fine.  She put in a lot of good years.  Almost 25 without a single problem (except for a little cord issue - see that bit of black electrical tape on the cord?).  But this flashy, new lovely was a great deal.  I snagged her up as a QVC TSV (today's special value) last week.  
Couldn't beat the price. 

I think it's time for her retirement.  Actually, I'll pass her on to Son No. 2 if he wants her.  He's my boy that's an aspiring home chef.  
He loves to cook!  

Now I just have to find a home for her.  She's too tall to stay on the countertop under the wall cabinets.  I don't like appliances on my kitchen counters anyway, but, for her, I might have made an exception.  

Guess I'll have to do some rearranging in the lower cabinets so this tall beauty can have a safe place to hang out when she's not hard at work.

Thanks for visiting!
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

Carla, love it. I also have the red one from a TSV from last year. I prev. had the white one and the head of it(not sure what you call it wouldn't go down all of the way but still worked) Did you see the green apple color love it. I am waiting for QVC to get the red color in again for the Vita Mix. I have been juicing everything in my old juicer and tired of the clean up.
