Artisan® Mini Stand Mixer

Home cooks who lack space for multiple pieces of cooking equipment will find culinary nirvana with the gift of an Artisan® Mini Stand Mixer. Offering the same power and performance as the brand's Classic™ Stand Mixer, the Mini Artisan mixer features a 3.5-quart capacity yet is 20% smaller and 25% lighter.

Using the included flat beater, wire whip and dough hook the new model can quickly and efficiently mix and knead ingredients for up to five dozen cookies or a loaf of bread.  Best of all, it accommodates all optional hub-based attachments available for the larger models. These include everything from a spiralizer, pasta maker and food grinder to a food processor and juicer.

The Artisan® Mini Stand Mixer is offered in Contour Silver, Empire Red, Guava Glaze, Honeydew, Hot Sauce, Matte Black, Matte Grey, Matte White, Orange Sorbet and Twilight Blue at a suggested retail price of $399.99.

Mini Food Processor

Compact and lightweight, the mini food processor's size makes it an easy and accessible "go to" gift for cooks who like to quickly chop, prepare dressings and create sauces. Featuring a 3.5-cup capacity, two speeds and a pulse operation, the mini food processor provides precise control to produce coarse or fine results every time. The uniquely designed stainless steel blade effortlessly chops and purees, and locks in place for convenient pouring. An easy-to-clean work bowl, lid and blade are all dishwasher safe, making it the perfect gift for simplifying essential food preparation tasks.

The mini food processor, available this September, will be offered in Twilight Blue, Hot Sauce, White, Onyx Black, Contour Silver, Ice, Liquid Graphite, Cocoa Silver, Boysenberry, Green Apple, Watermelon, Majestic Yellow, Empire Red, Tangerine and Pink at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Precision Press

On a hunt for the perfect gift for a coffee connoisseur in your life?  Look no further than the new KitchenAid® Precision Press Coffee Maker. Delivering exception flavors of traditional French press coffee through a simplified brew process, this coffee maker helps optimize flavor without requiring the skills of a barista. Equipped with an integrated scale, the Precision Press refines the class brew method by measuring coffee and water by weight instead of volume. The timer and digital display incorporated into the handle provide a quick and convenient read of steep time.

Designed with dual stainless steel construction, the 30-ounce carafe provides long-lasting heat retention. The cordless design allows for easy cleaning and reduced countertop clutter. The Precision Press Coffee Maker is available now at a suggested retail price of $149.99.
