This fall, KitchenAid is here to help with curated suites of stylish appliances that turn kitchens into inviting places to create, fresh design and entertaining inspiration, as well as seasonal recipes that bring everyone to the table…together.
Every detail and touchpoint of KitchenAid product is designed to inspire Makers with creativity—connecting them with friends and family in the kitchen. Tisha Johnson, VP, Head of Global Consumer Design at Whirlpool Corporation describes how her team puts the person at the center of KitchenAid design to create rich, meaningful experiences and products that are integrated seamlessly into the home.
OUR DESIGN STORY DESIGNED FOR CREATIVITY & CONNECTION
The design of a KitchenAid brand product begins with the human at the center of the process.
“We want to connect with the Makers of the world, so we keep the designs themselves really crafted and focused on enabling the best performance.
Our designers don’t set out to create something iconic, they set out to create great experiences.”
INNOVATING TO ELEVATE THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE
Every design decision at KitchenAid is informed by the desire to give Makers the tools and inspiration to create great experiences that bring people together in stylish spaces.
Whether it’s thoughtful details like distinctive satin cross-hatch texture on KitchenAid handles that create a unified look of care and a feeling of authenticity across the kitchen...
...dishwashers designed with generous loading flexibility to take on all the tools needed for cooking and entertaining—including the iconic stand mixer bowl
or, timeless undercounter appliances like wine refrigerators or beverage centers with design details like wood-front racks and elevated finishes—that invite friends into smaller spaces for conversation and cocktails.
A Kitchen is Far More Than a Place to Eat and Cook
Create a cozy nook for connecting. Stock it with an espresso maker for brewing lattes or festive martinis and undercounter refrigeration for extra drinks.
An island can provide a place to serve drinks and appetizers as well as a spot for people to gather and cook together.
Timeless design that matches your style with the performance to match your making.
Put your personal stamp on your space with a pop of a favorite color on a countertop appliance or a commercial-style range.
A rich array of stand mixer accessories and attachments let you explore different recipes and cuisines.

Charcuterie Boards for Your Next Get Together
“Snackable,” delicious and versatile enough to please everyone, charcuterie boards are a great “go to,” whether you're hosting or bringing a dish to pass. Traditional charcuterie boards are centered around cured meats, but with a little creativity and a balance of textures, colors and flavors they can be tailored for any meal of the day.
Festive BrunchStart with the charcuterie, ham, bacon and sausage and build around them:
Sweet – Fresh croissants with an assortment of jams and jellies
Salty – You’re covered here by the charcuterie items
Savory – Frittata, mini quiches or deviled eggs
Spicy – Honey cayenne glaze for the bacon or, honey and hot mustard sauce for the sausage and ham
Crunchy – Fresh melon slices
Vegan & Crave-worthyMake a tasty and satisfying board without the meat and cheese:
Sweet – Fruits, a combination of dried and fresh
Salty – Olives or tapenade
Savory – A hearty dip—hummus, guacamole, baba ganoush
Spicy – Hot cauliflower wings, spicy nuts
Crunchy – Richly seeded crackers, a crisp baguette, crudité
FriendsgivingTurn a snack into dinner with a variety of curated meats, dips and cheeses:
Sweet – Fresh grapes, figs or fig spread, organic honey, dried dates
Salty – Assorted olives
Savory – 2–3 cheeses—a soft, a hard and a delicious spread—and 2–3 meats—soppressata, prosciutto and a paté
Spicy – Roasted cherry peppers, spicy nuts
Crunchy – Cornichons or gherkins, assorted breads or breadsticks and crackers
Something SweetSkip the charcuterie altogether and create a crave-worthy dessert board centered around chocolate and cheese:

Stories COMFORT FOOD
Crusty breads, tender baked goods and silky pastas are delicious ways to create a warm welcome for fall gatherings. Wheat is at the heart of many of these well-loved foods. Take a journey from field to table with The Possibilities of Wheat and discover more about the beauty of this essential grain.
The Art of Scoring Bread
Scoring bread not only creates an attractive finished product, it controls the loaf’s rise while baking. Use a sharp knife to make quick cuts, about 1/4"–1/2" deep, in cold dough just before baking. Follow one of the patterns below or one you dream up.
A Delicious Finishing Touch
Brew homemade espressos, lattes and macchiatos—or make coffee dessert—with a creamy affogato to end your meal on a high note.
