I saw a Kitchenaid in Williams Sonoma the other day and it was a beautiful red sparkly color. I went on Kitchenaid’s site to find out which color it was. On the site they show Imperoial Red and Gloss Cinnamon. Anyone know which is the pretty sparkly one?

The red sparkly one I believe is the anniversary edition (with the glass bowl.) I’m pretty sure it was called Ruby. Could be Candy Apple…but that one doesn’t look like it has sparkle.

@MandyCakes: Yes, this is true. Cinnamon is a dark red and their regular red is Empire red.

Mandycakes is correct. it’s a specia edition color. i have the empire red professional 600. it’s not as beautiful a red as the candy apple but i still love it. cinnamon gloss is a darkish color.

There is also a black sparkley one. I have this and I think it’s called caviar. DH vetoed any of the girly colors so it was our compromise but I’m really happy with a neutral color as we do not own our own home so I’m sure our kitchen colors will change when we move, something to consider in large appliance purchases.

This might not be a very popular opinion, but if you are a serious baker, consider the Cuisinart.
Something has changed with KitchenAid. My mother’s KitchenAid mixer is still going strong after 30 years. Mine started to whine and complain at 10 years old (I got my KitchenAid when I was a sophomore in college, when I moved out of the dorms and into an apartment for the first time).
There is a different feel to these mixers today. I wound up doing a little research and buying Cuisinart’s new stand mixer. It doesn’t come in cool colors (just gray/chrome), but it’s a work horse. It kicks my old KitchenAid’s tail.
Of course, if you are a casual baker and make a batch of cookies every other month or so, the KitchenAid will be just fine.
Best feature of all:

@Jeannine @ Small Chic: I agree with you 100%. I have the same spice containers btw and love them! lol
As I said in another post about Kitchenaid:
“I’m a Pastry Chef by trade and I’ve had a kitchen aid mixer. The motor doesn’t seem to hold up for me but that might be because I use it all the time. Currently, I’m using a Viking mixer and don’t like it. The power is great but the attachments fell apart (the whisk). They won’t replace it either. So now I have a Cuisinart Stand Mixer and it’s great. It has more options and it’s the same price as a kitchen aid.
Also look at the wattage of the mixers. The Cuisinart is 800 watts, Viking is 1,000 watts, and Kitchen Aid Artisan in Pistachio is 325 watts. Now they try to say that wattage doesn’t matter in the mixers but that’s BS. I can tell you from personal experience and using them everyday that it does. You get less for the Kitchen Aid and pay the same price (with the exception of the Viking). Just food for thought.”

@Jeannine @ Small Chic: I’m a more casual baker and love my KitchenAid. I just got the beater blade attachment and can’t wait to play with it! I’ve had mine since we got married, so Oct. 2009. I’m only beginning to use the attachments it came with and make my own whipped cream and meringue! For anyone with a KitchenAid, get an extra bowl. Always helpful!
Your food processor attachment on there is awesome!
