For kitchenware or cookware appliances, KitchenAid food processor is a pioneer brand under Whirlpool Corporation that laid its corner stone in the year 1919. Since then, the company has made several series, and lately introduced the stand mixers, which I believe is their best seller. These Kitchenaid reviews will look at some of the products that are made by the company, and try to give an honest review for those who would want to have a Kitchenaid product.
History & the Past of the KitchenAid Food Processor
Stand Mixer was the brain child of Herbert Johnson, an engineer by profession working with Hobart Corporation. The sight of the baker mixing dough gave him a brilliant idea. At that eureka moment, he decided to make out the plans for a more efficient and faster device. Soon after the very first models, the ‘H’ mixer was launched to serve industrial needs. The US Navy was among the first who had ordered for appliances in their Tennessee class and California Battleships. By 1917, the Hobart models were already ruling the US marine ships, and this urged the manufacturers to concentrate on a model for residential use.
The very first appliance that could be categorized as home appliances and bore the name kitchenAid was the 10 quart C-10 devices that were circulated among the wives of executives in the Hobart’s Troy Metal Products factory. This was done to get feedback and initial tests. The product was then being sold from a kitchen in the farmhouse and in hardware outlets. But the company then decided to take up sales women to sell the appliance from door to door because many retailers were still skeptical about the idea of selling them. The C-10 machines were also named FountainAid and BakersAid, and so they had created a niche in the market for themselves.
The year 1922 was yet another landmark in the history of the company’s products and appliances because the H-5 mixers were presented. They were supposed to cater to the needs of home fronts and were quite portable as compared to the C-10. It had a five quart bowl and hence it was handled easily. The year 1920 was eventful. KitchenAid products next design – the ‘G’ range of Mixers was introduced in the market.
The G- series were amazingly light; close to half the weight of the H-5, and nothing seemed to be able to beat them (many companies started introducing the similar variety of mixers)! Till the next three decades, KitchenAid products and appliances ruled the market.
But the soaring graph met with a set back during the Second World War when the production was completely stopped. After the war, production started again. The factory was moved to Greenville, Ohio and production began full-fledged once again until the next landmark in their history arrived. In the year 1949, the first time KitchenAid launched its dishwasher by spreading its gamut beyond food processor mixers only. It created a stir in the market and their launching of the cookers added more excitement in the year 1985.
January 1986 saw the business be passed over to Whirlpool Corporation, and since then KitchenAid is still under this Corporation. Slowly the umbrella product was spread even more with the launching of the refrigerators. To keep the reputation high the company used proper marketing strategies and the 80’s saw celebrity chefs marketing their products.
The strategy did not go in vain. The popularity of their products rose even more. Presently, KitchenAid is a popular name in the household and is also the other name for durability and reliability. Every household in America requires the Kitchenware products from the company to complete the look of their kitchen.
