Stand mixers, being the workhorses of the kitchen, get put through the paces. I suppose it is this connection that inspires the home chef to decorate his or her stand mixer such that it is their own. From Alton Brown's flame hot-rod mixer to cow spot decals you can purchase yourself, the mixer has become an extension of personality in the kitchen. It certainly makes sense, since the stand mixer is the one doing all the work for us.

The KitchenAid 90th Anniversary Stand Mixer with Glass Bowl celebrates the longevity of the ubiquitous kitchen appliance. Complete with all the essential features one would expect from a KitchenAid stand mixer, the 90th anniversary model gets its vintage feel from the candy-apple red coating and the inclusion of a tempered glass bowl. The 10-speed mixer has the familiar tilt-back head and comes with a flat beater, a dough hook, a wire whip and a pouring shield.

Much like automobiles, stand mixers tend to reflect their owners' personalities. Unlike cars, however, KitchenAid stand mixers feature impressive compatibility through its product line. An attachment such as a pasta roller or food grinder that connects to the front hub will work with any KitchenAid stand mixer ever made. With so many accessories and features, the stand mixer is not only versatile and convenient, but is also handy tool for expressing your personal creativity in the kitchen.
