Although I love my ever-present, practical rice cooker, it definitely doesn’t help beautify my kitchen. And let’s be honest, most countertop appliances are designed for functionality, not for aesthetics.
The KitchenAid Stand Mixer is one exception. A staple in most kitchens (especially in those that see a lot of baking), the stand mixer commands attention, in a pretty, statuesque way. And now, with twenty-six shades to choose from, it’s a way to add a pop of colour all while easing your prep work.
While browsing through the options is one way to find your favourite, KitchenAid has come up with a fun way to determine which Artisan Series Stand Mixer colour is you. Just answer six questions at www.KitchenAidColourology.ca and your shade will be revealed!
I did the quiz and was a bit surprised at the answer: crystal blue (I think I was hoping for empire red, which is the shade my Mum has). My profile reads: “Sometimes you just need that little extra sparkle to brighten your surroundings. Crystal Blue is the bling you wear with your favourite outfit for a night on the town. It’s that “something blue” that will make your kitchen glisten with style.” Hm, maybe it’s telling me that I need a bit of a kitchen makeover!
Regardless, KitchenAid has kindly allowed me to give away a KitchenAid Stand Mixer on my blog. To enter, simply take the quiz and comment (with a valid e-mail) on which colour is chosen for you. Entries will be accepted until 11:59pm on October 9, 2012. I will contact the randomly chosen winner by e-mail by October 11, 2012. Only Canadian residents can enter.

crystal blue too! we must love long walks on the beach. 8P thanks for the giveaway. i will think about my first use for it if i win.
My color was buttercup yellow! Surprising…I much prefer the pistachio or the ice blue. I’m not sure how to leave my email on here so I’m hoping Twitter will do 🙂
Pistachio! Which is perfect since I loveeee it too. Thank you!
I got Blue Willow. Sometimes I bake at my friend’s just so I can use her mixer! She doesn’t seem to mind the fresh batch of cookies — it’s win-win.
Onyx Black! I’m definitely a timeless classic!
This shade may feel retro, but it’s
definitely not ironic. Both creative and energetic, Persimmon can work
with any interior. It’s that needed pop of colour against a white
splashboard, or the bow that ties together your natural wood cabinets.
Hmmmmm… Somehow that does not seem to fit me…
My quiz result was Empire Red, but I would definitely prefer one of the greens or blues, probably Pistachio.
My result was Onyx Black (surprising, I was sure I’d get bright green): Onyx black is a classic, like Casablanca, it’s considered timeless. Just like a black and white film, a feeling of romance encompasses you. Whether the supporting character is white, marble or a stainless steel countertop, you’ll leave whispering, “Here’s looking at you, kid.”
What a great giveaway! I’ve always wanted a KitchenAid mixer and jealously coveted the ones my friends all seemed to have. Oh the things I would make….!
My shade was Bay Leaf, wouldn’t match my kitchen though. 🙂
Not just white, white on whte! Perfect!
I was crystal blue too – not at all what I would pick if I had the choice. Cute little quiz though. Awesome give away!
Boysenberry! So pretty!
Bay leaf, which is beaultiful! 🙂
Bay Leaf! Wow – they have such a huge range of colours now!
Bay leaf also!
Persimmon was chosen for me. I’ve never eaten a persimmon. I would eat a persimmon if I won.
I also got Crystal Blue. Though, if I had the choice it definitely would not be this one haha.
Cornflower blue! Which I love, actually.
Empire Red, though I was hoping for Tangerine or Pistachio 😉
White! It will be classic forever.
Metallic chrome…interesting. Thanks for the giveaway!
Pistachio Green! Very cool
Cobalt Blue – remains humble, as it knows how to take advantage of the space around it.
Gloss cinnamon–spicy! This was a fun quiz–thanks1
Ice Blue – Hmmm…this is not a typical colour choice for me 🙂 Awesome giveaway!
Cobalt Blue. Not what I was expecting. 🙂
Empire Red… Awesome!!!! 😀
I got Persimmon but was hoping for Boysenberry
I got buttercup… all about the cozy kitchen!
My standmixer colour is Bay leaf. At first I was like, “Whaaaat?” But I really love the colour. It’s a sort of muted green. Very cool!
It gave me Metallic Chrome…which is probably what I would normally pick, except I love the Pistachio- it would make it such a pretty countertop addition rather than blending (haha) into the background.
My colour is Buttercup Yellow – must be for my alter ego!
There is something so fresh and pure about
Pear, you’d want to eat it. Naturally gifted, it brightens up any space,
making any white, marble or steel countertop a little tastier.
I got Buttercup – kind and vibrant to make any kitchen cozy. I’m curious to know how I might become more of a boysenberry or persimmon though?!? Thanks for the fun distraction.
Crystal blue, with green and white as alternates. All very nice in my mind.
Caviar. But I already have the empire red and love it! They’re all good!
This was great. Apparently my answers might call my manliness into question. Buttercup, with boysenberry and Pink as alternates. Bizarre.
Pear, Colbalt and Honey, I love those colour. To bad my old kitchenaid is classic silver.
Green Apple, with Pear as alternatives. I really like the Buttercup and Pear.
Pear and pistachio! LOVE those colours too 🙂 What a pop of colour these add to kitchens indeed!
Buttercup! But I love the crystal Blue!
Caviar for me!
Haha, I got cobalt blue with an alternative of cobalt blue…. interesting!
gloss cinnamon! sooooo pretty!
Caviar is, apparently, my colour. Personally, I’d rather the Crystal Blue simply because my kitchen is white and blue.
Pear with Almond Cream as an alternative – although if I had my choice I’d choose Boysenberry or Ice Blue!
Majestic Yellow! Which I really love although I think I love Green Apple best…
My colour is Caviar!
Gloss Cinnamon!!! What a great quiz!!
terra.skye2009 @ gmail DOT com
Great contest Sharon
Good for you for getting this kind. Of offer!
I have been hoping they would ask me!
I have no pride!!! Xo
Empire Red! (I think it was the salsa dancing 🙂 )
Apparently I’m a ‘pistachio green’!! Thanks for the contest 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m a cobalt blue kind of guy.
Lucky me- empire red!
The quiz came up with silver metallic. I am a little shocked. I would have guessed persimmon. I would be happy with either. 🙂
Pistachio Green! So amazing that I would get the result of my #1 choice in real life! Thanks for the fun contest, think of me when you pick a winner because I am definitely not able to afford one on my own! oooxxx
I got Tangerine, so lovely. Will match my curtains!
Green Apple, mmm I love apples. I could make an apple cake with this mixer!
I got Caviar, which pretty much sums up my love of simplicity.
A little surprised the quiz was obviously female oriented…
Almond creme, though I love that the orange-tangerine came a close second as that is my very favourite colour. Fingers crossed and thanks, Sharon.
Cobalt Blue!! ❤
Empire Red. I guess it suits my Imperial ambitions?
Almond Cream! That was a totally unexpected result =)
Looks like my color is CAVIAR
Checked it out and that’s pretty much a black color
I’m Onyx Black, with Buttercup and Pistachio as my alternate suggestions. If I was going to buy my own, it would be Green Apple!
Empire red! very nice pop of color in my kitchen
Green Apple! Love the bright! email@example.com
Love those spicy orange colours!
I got Crystal Blue! Love how bright it is
Green apple! Good time of year to bake some Granny Smith pies with it!
Cornflower blue, because I am a dreamer. Cool quiz. Where do we post our email?
I’m Green Apple!
Almond cream… even though my favorite color is definitely green apple !
I’m Metallic Chrome! Who would have thought there’s so many colours! *squeal*
Empire Red – never would have guessed.
Almond cream the first time, Empire Red the second time. I would personally choose Onyx Black.
Boysenberry. “As the saying goes, “life begins outside your comfort zone,” and Boysenberry reminds us to live in colour!”
Whelp, they’ve got me pegged. 😉
Empire Red here!
Caviar, not the color I would have chosen for myself, oh well~
Crystal Blue! So pretty! I’d love to have that beauty in my kitchnen. Fingers crossed!
Tangerine is my color! Delightful and fun!
Cornflower blue! They were right, I definitely still lick the spoon after baking!
Persimmon is my colour! Matches my favourite pair of jeans!
White is what it picked for me…..as in a blank canvas 🙂
Green Apple! Which is exactly what I would have picked! How does it know??
Love the questions they ask . Imperial Grey was my color
Onyx black. Although they say it’s a classic, I’m surprised as I love colour. Either way, I’d appreciate a Mixer. Thx Sharon!
Persimmmon was the colour chosen for me — love it! Would look great on my kitchen countertop!
White on white! I guess it’ll go well with the rest of my kitchen 🙂
Empire Red is MY colour! Thanks for posting such a great contest! Love your blog!
I’m surprised that it is White on White for me. But I am a simple person and this KitchenAid would simplify my life.
Crystal Blue! A definite like!
Ha! Caviar! Black? Where did I go wrong in the quiz?! Oh well….would still love to win! There are some fabulous colours to choose from!
Cobalt blue. Not sure I’d actually pick this color for my kitchen. Pick me!
I got metallic chrome! That’s actually the color I would choose if I were to buy one myself! 😀
MAJESTIC YELLOW! Am I the only one so far?! It’s a BEAUTY!!
Metallic chrome! Nice
I tried it a few times… Boysenberry, Buttercup, Pistachio… Now I’m hungry!
I somehow came out with Empire Red, but for most of the quiz it was giving me blue willow which I… like better. Alas.
I got crystal blue too! Haha, personally I’d choose ice blue for myself but I guess it’s close enough 🙂
Imperial Grey is my colour and I love it!
I did it twice, got metallic chrome the first time through, and then empire red the second! I had no idea there were so many colours, some of the blues are gorgeous. I think any of them would look pretty nice in my kitchen!
Empire Red 🙂
Empire Red! A hot and spicy color! Love it!
Huh….Buttercup yellow. Now that I look around my kitchen, I have lots of soft yellow tones.
Empire red… which was a shock to me. I love the look of sleek black!
Boysenberry! Interesting…never would have picked this out on my own.
The quiz must work! It picked my favorite, Empire Red.
Cobalt Blue! Love it!
White on white
Metallic chrome 🙂
Caviar, but I also love the gloss cinnamon – so beautiful! ajdoucette (at) shaw (dot) ca
Quiz says: Cobalt Blue! My sister has the orange and it stands out. Iconic design 🙂
Crystal blue! It would brighten up any kitchen! (perhaps like ours 🙂 )
White on White!
Majestic Yellow was the colour chosen for me.
Blue willow for me!
My color was white on white.
Green apple! Cool!
I am an Empire Red gal 🙂
Caviar…..pretty cool. 🙂
waaa – i wanted pink!
i got cornflower blue, but hey who am i kidding – i’d take ANY color…..
Buttercup yellow! But I have always swooned over pistachio. I would make any color work in my kitchen!
Pistachio Green for me!
pistachio !!! love that color!
Tangerine! The colour I would have chosen for myself!
Imperial Black, bold yet beautiful lol
Crystal Blue! Yum.
LOL Empire Red. Bold and dynamic. Love it!
Crystal Blue for me!! So pretty!! 🙂
Almond cream…..I feel boring just writing it…
Crystal blue! Not what I would have chosen either!
Majestic Yellow, but I did the quiz three times and got a different colour each time!
Almond Cream. I was hoping for something with a little more pop, but I do lean toward classic and neutral…
Apparently I’m an Empire Red kinda gal 😉 So many pretty colours~
Buttercup! nugglemama at hotmail dot com
Buttercup, but I’d totally pick the boisenberry instead! nugglemama at hotmail dot com
I got Boysenberry
I got boysenberry, any purple color I’d totally love!!
I got empire red! And it’s one of my favourites out of the bunch, along with green apple and crystal blue 🙂
I’m a “Blue” person so Crystal blue is perfect for me.
Pear, and I’m impressed since that was defintely my first choice anyway!
Ice blue! Thanks for the giveaway!
Persimmon, hmmm it could be really really good!
I am raw, organic and natural…like a pear! I’m a pear colour kitchen aid mixer and I absolutely LOVE IT!!
Cobalt blue for me! Great blog by the way.
pistachio green….funny, my kitchen walls are pistachio/sage colour!
pistachio green! my kitchen walls are kind of a pistachio colour….
Boysenberry! Young and trendy totally agree! Love this colour!
I ended up being Majestic Yellow – when I thought I would be Cornflower or Ice Blue. But – looking at yellow feels pretty invigorating – which is how I like to feel in the kitchen! Plus the associated recipe for sweet corn and chanterelle chowder sounds awesome. AND it seems to be Chef Lynn’s colour too…
Really though – ANY colour of Kitchenaid would be good.
I took the Color test and my color was:
Crystal Blue !
Although, I’m pretty sure my heart would tell me that the white or Almond is where it’s at 🙂
I didn’t realize they had SO many colors!
But Thank You for your Blog. My husband and I enjoy reading it and discovering new and tasty dishes and places throughout the city.
Take Care (and in the mean time I’ll cross my fingers, buy a rabbits foot, find a four leaf clover and get a horse shoe 😉 ),
Boysenberry!?! I didn’t even know they made it in that colour. I was hoping for the Crystal Blue one that you got. Anyway, here’s what it says for Boysenberry?!!??!!
As the saying goes, “life begins outside your comfort zone,” and Boysenberry reminds us to live in colour! Young and trendy, this eccentric shade finds a well-deserved place in any modern or eclectic kitchen.
I guess I’m trendier than I thought. Who knew?
Hi – Onyx black is the colour that they chose for me – what can I say 🙂
Idid the quiz and my colour was empire red! I actually prefer the blue one you got. I did the test again and I got pistachio. Which I love but it wouldn’t go in my kitchen. The red would though!
Took the quiz. The Persimmon colour KitchenAid Stand Mixer suits me to a T – rocks my world (and hopefully my kitchen someday soon!)
(It would be right at home with my stainless steel Kitchenaid dishwasher and microwave, and ‘glam’ up my work space.)
My colour was Majestic Yellow. An interesting choice as my kitchen walls and linen are yellow. I love yellow kitchens!
Onyx is my colour. It’s so beautiful and useful. Perfect
My Stand Mixer would be BOYSENBERRY….or was that BOISENBERRY?
I think they got it right…something about thinking outside the box.
My colour was Empire Red. I love that colour!
I took the Colourology test for the Kitchenaid and it selected Boysenberry. I love the colour.
Hmmm… “Caviar” (aka black) was chosen for me. How boring. I was hoping for red or purple or turquoise, or anything else really with more personality!
I adore Majestic Yellow! So fun and bright!
Persimmon. Would have been my top choice anyway.
Ah! I had fun doing the survey. Didnt know there were so many colours! I got Pistachio Green…need to dig up my pearls!
Pistachio green which is perfect b/c green is my fave color!
