There is something wonderfully charming about the line of home appliances by KitchenAid. Maybe it is the kitschy retro styling that does the trick or the vivid hues its available in. Whatever the reason is, the retro Pleasantville aesthetics have a lot of takers and they will also appreciate the KitchenAid Professional 600 6qt Stand Mixer. I am no Martha Stewart but even I am tempted to get my hands on this all-steel gadget which claims to be KitchenAid’s most powerful stand mixer. The mixer not only scores brownie points for its vintage styling but also for its impressive feature set. It features 6-quart stainless steel bowl with contoured handle, flat beater, dough hook, wire whip and pouring shield and also has an electronic sensor with soft-start feature to prevent splashing when mixing begins. Currently on sale at JC Penney, the high-performance mixer is a must have for retro modern design lovers.
