Choices



For my end of the year gift, my students so graciously gave me a KITCHENAID mixer!
I am so pumped. I can't wait to use it. The only problem is that I am still deciding on a color. Those of you who know my kitchen know that it is brown and green, so should I go with , white, black, or gray? Oh yea, my other appliances out are black and my dishwasher and fridge are off-white. I'd love to hear what you think:o)

Wow! What an awesome gift! Just as I suspected, your students (and their parents) love you! Personally, I like black. It will match your coffee accessories and dishwasher. I am not a huge fan of stainless steel these days b/c I have some stainless steel canisters for flour, sugar, etc. on my counter and they are really hard to keep clean! They show fingerprints, etc. . . just my opinion, for what its worth! :)

Are you sure you don't want RED? well, I think what Laura says, makes a lot of sense about the finger prints. Our toaster is like that too - looks great when I windex it a little, but you don't want to always be doing that. I think you would be happier with black than white. I can't wait to see it! Maybe when we all live together I'll get to use it too.(j/k)

jason... good to see you on our blog :o) I'll have to check out yours!

kate.. you totally can use it anytime you want... but i'm not sharing jenny :o)

p.s. i thought about a cool color like red or green...but some older women advised against it, since I'll have it for hopefully 10+ years!

Oh, I agree with Katie. You definitely need red. :-) KitchenAid Mixers are the BEST. I'm happy that you get one!!

However, in ten years it could really look like a classic if it is red! heheheh

LMLogan said...

hmmm between the 2?? black - but I'd really like red too!! :)

Hey, Jules! I say BLACK. It's a classic color and will look great in ANY kitchen no matter if you change your color palette in 10 years. :) I'm happy for you...what a fabulous gift! Enjoy it!

Hey jules,
I would suggest black. It is a classic color and will not go out of style, yet somewhat modern like your style. It's a sweet kitchen gadget, either way you will probably be thrilled.

I'd go with grey (or stainless). Who cares about hard to keep clean. I mean, I dont have one, so I dont know how much you will actually use it, but I really dont see it as a problem to just wipe it down after each time you use it. Just my opinion! suzanne

Luther's Stein said...

I say go with black . . . and that's final! jk, get whatever you want babe.

Julie,

I like black for your kitchen. I have white one and it stays clean and still looks new.
