If you are a home chef and you love small appliances the way I do, you’re going to nod in understanding when I say that everyone loves KitchenAid for Christmas. The company produces powerful small appliances for the home chef, and these appliances take on every task and do it well. In doing so, they’ve made these appliances into absolute must-haves, and it doesn’t hurt that there is an entire lineup available in the latest hot colours.

These aren’t appliances you tuck away in your cupboard. These are small appliances a home chef will display in a place of honour because there’s literally a colour to suit every kitchen counter. Not only that, but have you seen their siphon coffee brewer? It’s so retro classic you’ll want to look at it as much as you’re going to want to brew coffee in it.

Here’s a few of my favourite picks for KitchenAid gifts this Christmas. Fair warning: you’re going to have a hard time choosing.

Wrap up the KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Let’s start with the Cadillac of the kitchen: the KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t have or want one of these beautiful stand mixers. Although they’re easy on the eyes because they’re available in every colour of the rainbow, underneath that sleek, stylish exterior is a powerhouse that can whip, blend, and mix anything you put in the bowl.

The KitchenAid Stand Mixer comes in a variety of styles and types, and you can also purchase additional attachments for the mixer once you have one. Want to grind up your own meat and cheese? Just add the KitchenAid Food Grinder. If you want to make ice cream easily, use the KitchenAid Ice Cream attachment. My favourite attachment is the KitchenAid Precise Heat Mixing Bowl. It’s the perfect way to proof bread or melt chocolate.

Double take these KitchenAid Coffee Makers

I’m not joking; when I saw the KitchenAid Siphon Coffee Brewer for the first time I immediately wanted to bring one home use it as a piece of kitchen décor. It has such a great retro classic vibe it reminds me of espresso makers I only see in vintage-style coffee shops.

Pair it with the KitchenAid Burr Coffee Grinder and you can whip up 8 glorious cups of siphon-style coffee every single day. When you’re not using it, it will grace your counter in style.

Yes, you need a KitchenAid Immersion blender

I think immersion blenders are one of most under-rated small appliances on the market, but there are so many reasons why they make a great addition to any kitchen. If you’re making soup and you want to puree it, you don’t even have to take it out of the pot. You can use your immersion blender to whip it up right in the bowl, then keep cooking.

Immersion blenders are also great for making an in-the-cup smoothie and whipping up whip cream. They work so quickly, and to clean up an immersion blender you just have to pull the wand off and pop it in the dishwasher.

I have one immersion blender for blending food, and another for making homemade soap. It’s one of most-used small appliances I own.

Splash out every small appliance with the KitchenAid Colour Collection

With a KitchenAid small appliance you know you’re getting a durable appliance designed for ease of use and complete convenience, but they’re also great for adding a burst of colour or a touch of style to your kitchen. That’s why the colour collection doesn’t just apply to stand mixers or immersion blenders.

If someone you love wants a new blender, toaster, or food processor, you can choose their favourite colour in that too. Imagine waking up every morning to a sunny yellow toaster or using a cornflower blue food processor when you’re chopping.

I love my KitchenAid small appliances, and I can’t think of a single appliance the company makes that wouldn’t make a great gift for the home chef this holiday.

What’s your favourite type and colour of KitchenAid small appliance?
