Quick! Someone should pull out their KitchenAid stand mixer and make KitchenAid a celebratory cake: The brand is celebrating its 100th anniversary! If you don't have a KitchenAid stand mixer (or you want a new one), you're in luck. To celebrate this major milestone, the company is releasing a commemorative mixer, which will be available for a limited time. And there's an extra-extra special version only at Williams Sonoma
The 100 Year Celebration Mixer comes in this limited-edition Misty Blue, which is meant to "evoke a classic style, harkening back to one of the first KitchenAid Stand Mixer colors ever introduced," according to the company.
Fun fact: Originally, the KitchenAid stand mixer was only available in white. It wasn't until 1955, when Williams Sonoma decided that there should be more color in the kitchen (specifically European Blue), that a new color was introduced.
This Celebration Mixer is technically two mixers: there's a premium one that comes with a ceramic hobnail bowl and a flex edge beater (available exclusively at Williams Sonoma for $500) and one with a white-coated stainless steel bowl (for $400). Like other mixers in the company's lineup, these also have 10 optimized speeds and a tilt-head design.
Unlike KitchenAid's other mixers, though, these models are emblazoned with a unique Heritage-Inspired KitchenAid (read: old time-y) logo and special power hub cover that's an intentional throwback to the celebrate the 100-year history of the brand. And they'll only be available for a limited time.
When you consider this new color (and don't even get us started on that beautiful hobnail bowl!), the commemorative mixer certainly feels like a classic. Like something our grandparents could have used 90 or 100 years ago, no? Especially compared to more recent modern releases like the matte black and copper machines.

Also, if you're in the market for a new oven, there will be a matching 36-inch Limited Edition KitchenAid Range for $7,699.
What do you think of the new color? And that hobnail bowl?
