So…I was good last year and Santa brought me lots of gift certificates for housewares…and so I think I finally get to bite the bullet and get a KitchenAid mixer.
But…how do you pick a color? One has yet to speak to me…
I saw one in hot pink once that I kind of liked…(I’m not really a fan of the lighter pink that is still available)…but I distinctly remember that my mother had a mustard yellow mixer from her first wedding that was uber-trendy at the time but was really ugly by the time I was old enough to pass judgment. So…I worry that some of the flashier colors would eventually go the way of my mother’s mustard yellow mixer and my own children would turn their noses up at me.
I got a collection of bowls and pans a few Christmases back that were red…so I’m tempted to get Empire Red so it matches them. Then again, I’m not sure I’m in love with that shade for the mixer itself.
White and Onyx Black seem boring…
But Buttercup Yellow, Cornflower, Clementine and Lemongrass seem dangerous.
So…I may end up just getting Metallic Chrome. *That* would match my Cuisinart. But then the bowl’s practically the same color as the machine and that seems boring, too. Sigh.
Empire Red or Metallic Chrome?
