I am getting the Cornflower Blue one for Xmas. 

Which will hopefully match the “Carribean” Le Creuset I’m registering for!

out of your list, i like aqua the best.  i have a cobalt one.  i just loooooooove that deep, bold blue, and it matches the set of sango nova crocks i have on my counter with flour and sugar and stuff in them.

I would be happy with any of them, but even though pink is my favorite color, I think I am going with red, because I am hoping to have a black/white/red kitchen someday.

I have the aqua and I LOVE it! Matches a tea pot I already had perfectly and gives such a fun pop of color. I debated between it and the ice for a long time, but decided bold was the way to go.

Just a couple of Kitchenaid tips…

  1. If you plan to use it a few times a year and don’t really plan to use to make bread/knead, go for whatever color you like best.  (I <3 the aqua.)
  2. If you plan to use it a lot (more than 2x/month) and ever plan to use it for making bread/kneading, suck up the extra cost and get the professional model (which comes in stainless, black, white, and red).  The regular version really can’t handle heavy use or kneading.

Finally, and this is the most important part – REGISTER FOR IT SOMEWHERE WITH A GREAT RETURN POLICY.  Your Kitchenaid will likely burn out at some point.  I have the professional and make a lot of bread and am already on my second machine.  If you register at a place with a good return policy (I got mine at Bloomingdale’s) they will exchange it, no questions asked, if your motor ever burns out.  The Kitchenaid is an amazing machine and I could not live without mine, but they are not made to last forever.  Knowing this, I just think it’s a good idea to know what you are getting into and to buy it somewhere where you know they will be nice about giving you a brand new one if you ever have problems.

The Komen light pink color has been mine for a few years. They just introduced a hot pink version now called raspberry ice. I’m a pink freak, I hope they stop there.

@septcabride: That is so interesting to me, my parents and Future In-Laws both got them for their weddings 30 years ago, use them all the time and still have their 30 year old ones!

@chasesgirl:  The same for my grandmother – she thinks that make them a lot more cheaply now so you have to replace them.

@knvprincess143:  I got the pistachio and love it!  It was a SERIOUS tie between pistacio, aqua, and ice…just like you.  In the end, my decision was made easy because Macy’s had the pistachio one in stock and I wanted it THEN! lol

Another reason I went with pistachio is I already have ALOT of aqua colors in my kitchen and I don’t want a two color kitchen…I’m going more for a vintage pastels in the kitchen and the pistachio fit that idea perfectly!

@jacinda10:  I don’t know if you looked at them side-by-side, but to my eye the aqua matches the Carribean much better than the cornflower.

@knvprincess143: Imperial Black. I really wanted the blue one, but Darling Husband and I decided to go with a neutral color, so it would match anything we put in the kitchen. 🙂

@septcabride:  Agreed but the store we registered at doesn’t have the aqua. :(.
