Giveaway: $499.99 KitchenAid Stand Mixer

I love you crazy non-Canadians (move to Canada!) but this giveaway is only open to Canadians.  Normally I try to wrangle really open giveaways, but with the prize being SO huge, I couldn’t say no to this one.  But I feel your pain, my heart aches with jealousy.

KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer

(KSM150PS)

It has a “Flour Power” rating of 9 cups
(2.1L) of flour per recipe. This means a yield of 4½ loaves of
bread or 9 dozen cookies or 7 pounds (3.2 kg) of mashed potatoes.  That’s a lot of potatoes.


It has a 5-quart (4.73 L) polished
stainless steel bowl with handle, coated flat beater, dough hook and
wire whip, as well as a two-piece pouring shield.

It is super versatile and, with different
attachments, the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer becomes a culinary centre. You
can make everything from linguine to biscuits to sorbet.  Mmm sorbet.

It comes in one of 26 colours, so you are bound to find the perfect one for your kitchen.


It is iconic.  The
KitchenAid® Stand Mixer has been on the market for over 90 years because it has quality you can feel, a timeless design, and an
easy-to-use premium performance.  Seriously, even if you don’t bake, use it as an “objet d’art”.

    Apparently I'm Black Onyx…I disagree…though I would have a hard time choosing…I've never tried as I know I can't really afford one and don't want to disappoint myself…I would love to be forced to pick because I've won!
