Object 15 [of 66] – KitchenAid Stand Mixer


The blue KitchenAid Stand Mixer on the kitchen counter is the successor to the revolutionary Hobart KitchenAid K-5A, which in 1975 first made many professional culinary tasks easy for the home cook. Julia, whose life mission was to make sophisticated cooking possible for the home cook, refers to this mixer as her "K-5A," though both the model numbers and technical capabilities have long surpassed those of the original.
