KitchenAid 7-Quart Stand Mixer Giveaway

This is the best and most amazing giveaway I’ve ever hosted. To the tune of a $549 value, but who’s counting.

One very lucky person is going to win a new KitchenAid 7-Quart Bowl Lift Residential Stand Mixer in the color of your choice (red, silver, black, white)

Here is some product information on KitchenAid’s newest and best performing stand mixer


I have made a half dozen things with my new mixer and it’s the mixing equivalent of a Ferrari.

Sleek, smooth, powerful, responsive. Truly an amazing piece of high end equipment.

In comparison to my 6-quart KitchenAid stand mixer, which is a wonderful machine, the 7-quart is even better.

Why do I love the 7-Quart Stand Mixer so much?

It’s the largest capacity residential bowl-lift Available 7-Quart (6.6 L). The extra quart helps with making things like 8 ½ lbs of mashed potatoes,
8 ½ loaves of bread, or 14 dozen cookies at once.

This baby is deep

You may think, Oh I’d never make that much of anything or I don’t need all that room but once you have all that room, you will be in mixing heaven and won’t ever want to give up all that room.

In terms of height, the 7-quart is about an inch taller than the 6-quart, really not much wider, and for functional and practical terms, it fits in the same cabinet space as my 6-quart does.

The 7-quart is just so smooth and it’s the most powerful and quietest KitchenAid Stand Mixer available – 1.3HP high efficiency DC motor is designed to run longer and delivers optimum torque with less heat build-up.

It easily handles recipes requiring longer mixing, kneading and whipping times.

The all-metal, precise gear design produces a smooth, quiet sound.

This mixer is their most efficient. An advanced feedback control communicates in micro seconds to the motor to ensure optimal power is delivered to the bowl. When I change the speed, the mixer is so incredibly responsive.

Included in the box

Dishwasher Safe Accessories:
Maximize bowl coverage with
the stainless steel 11-wire
Elliptical Whip, coated metal
Flat Beater and Power Knead™
Dough Hook. Handles small and large jobs equally well.

This mixer is so shiny and gorgeous in person that it was hard to take photos. The light just bounces, shines, and reflects like crazy. This Shiny Lady would light up anyone’s kitchen beautifully.

I know I am going to create memories for decades to come with this mixer. As a little girl, I grew up helping my mother and grandmother cook and bake. When my mom hauled out her 1970s split pea green KitchenAid stand mixer, I knew it was time to help her create something fabulous. I will never forget the times we spent baking and cooking together. They are among my fondest childhood memories.

Whether it was holiday cookies or birthday cakes or a batch of cookies just because, I grew up baking with a KitchenAid. This mixer, me, and my little baking helper will create a lifetime of baking with our shiny red KitchenAid. She’s only five years old now, but already wants to be in charge of the beater speed. Whoa, honey, do not put it on high right after we add the flour.

I’ve already put the mixer to use making White and Dark Chocolate Cream Cheese Chocolate Cake Bars

After pondering the hundreds of desserts I’ve made and blogged about over the years, I narrowed it down and here are my Top 5 Favorite Recipes I’ve made.

I can’t wait to recreate these recipes, and make hundreds more, with help from my new KitchenAid 7-Quart Stand Mixer:

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Triple Layer Fudgy Mint Oreo Brownies

Marshmallow Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Pillowtop Bars (GF with Vegan options)

Coconut Peanut Butter Magic Cake Bars

And an honorable mention for Caramel and Chocolate Gooey Bars (GF with Vegan adaptation)

  4. Oh My, What wouldn’t I make. I’ve had my Kitchen Aid for year and the poor baby is about ready to go to kitchen Aid heaven. I do lots of baking, sauces, dressings. I would so love this new bigger, more powerful model. Averie, thanks for the awesome give-away.

  5. My father was a professional chef and the idea of cooking for him was too scary to even consider. Finally it was time. I was 23 & newly married. I made a beautiful stuffed, roasted chicken, sweet peas and pearl onions in a garlic cream cheese sauce and loaded mashed potatoes. I was so scared when he came thru the door I told him if he didn’t like what was on the menu there was a McDonalds two blocks away. He sat down, cleaned his plate, asked or more and never complained. After my mom passed he came to live with us and always made me feel like he really did love my cooking. Memories… I miss cooking for him
