Sponsors of the KitchenAid Home Baker Bread Hero Award
For over 100 years KitchenAid, Made for Makers, have designed appliances to open doors to new possibilities and help makers of all skill levels get the most out of making.
In 1908, Ohio-based engineer Herbert Johnston developed a stand mixer to help alleviate the backbreaking work of bread making. By 1919 the very first household mixer, boasting the unique planetary action and famous curves, was ready for market. During a product test, the wife of an employee exclaimed “I don’t care what you call it, it’s the best kitchen aid I’ve ever had!”. And the rest, as they say, is history …
In 1937, Egmont Arens, editor of Creative Arts magazine and Vanity Fair fused iconic design with outstanding engineering and durability to create the new tilt-head K-Model. At launch, the mixer was only available in white but in 1955 Sunny Yellow, Island Green, Petal Pink, and Satin Chrome were introduced. KitchenAid continue to build on their colour leadership and offer the widest range of colours on the market.
KitchenAid believes in awakening and championing the spirit of making in everyone.
