KitchenAid’s iridescent color of the year is stunning

Add a touch of Blue Salt to your kitchen

Choosing a color for your KitchenAid stand mixer is a big deal. After all, KitchenAids are real workhorses — they last forever, often getting passed down from one family member to another. Once you pick your color, you're likely locked in for decades. I, for one, went with a matte dusty rose and have no regrets. KitchenAid's newly announced 2024 Color of the Year is almost making me rethink that, though.

KitchenAid's Blue Salt color explained

KitchenAid 2024 Color of the Year Blue Salt Stand Mixer

The new color is Blue Salt, which KitchenAid describes as "periwinkle blue with a subtle iridescent, reddish-pearl finish."

"Inspired by the way a pinch of salt can open your senses to new depths of flavor, Blue Salt is anything but monotonous," the brand writes. "Salty, yet sweet and blue, yet purple, it’s a living color that sparks optimism, creativity and fresh perspectives. The subtle yet shifting finish is a sensory reminder to see every day in a new light."

KitchenAid also describes Blue Salt as "versatile, enhancing and inspiring," but I'm just thinking about how that subtle iridescent finish would look different in different kitchen lighting throughout the day. It's truly gorgeous.

If you're in the market for a KitchenAid stand mixer, now is the time to buy and get your hands on this stunning new hue. It's exclusive to the tilt-head Artisan model, which is available from KitchenAid's website for $499.99. It comes with a premium accessory pack, which includes a flex edge beater, pastry beater, coated silver dough hook, six-wire whip, a pouring shield and two bowls (a 3-quart stainless steel bowl and a 5-quart stainless steel bowl with a side handle).
