I've had my KitchenAid mixer since I was in high school. Yes, that seems a little bit crazy, but when you find a deal too good to pass up, it's best not to pass it up.
In all the years I've had the mixer, it's found a home in many different kitchens. It has traveled along with me from Kansas to Iowa, back to Kansas, to New York, to California, and back to New York. Somewhere along the way, I got a cover for the mixer, and it was one of the best things I've purchased.
