The first domestic scale stand mixer came about in 1918 as a product from the Hobart Company. That machine when tested earned the moniker – KitchenAid. This is pretty much that original design – one that has a separate motor rather than one built into the unit. I picked this one up in rough shape cosmetically but otherwise in excellent physical condition. For those who might be interested in seeing more details of this
really cool machine – working with it betrays it’s commercial lineage – I’ve got a bunch of photos here.
