3 CORDLESS KITCHEN APPLIANCES: TYPES AND BENEFITS
Thanks to their portability, power and sleek, clean appearances, KitchenAid® cordless appliances have unleashed a whole new world of creative possibilities in the kitchen. Use this guide to learn more about the three great reasons why you’ll want to start creating with a cordless immersion blender, cordless hand mixer and cordless food chopper.
WHAT ARE CORDLESS KITCHEN APPLIANCES?
Cordless kitchen appliances are not connected to a power outlet by a cord or wire. Instead, they are typically powered by a rechargeable battery and give you more freedom and flexibility to move around the kitchen as you create. Examples include battery-powered immersion blenders, hand mixers and food choppers.
HOW DO CORDLESS KITCHEN APPLIANCES WORK?
Cordless kitchen appliances typically work using rechargeable batteries. These batteries are sometimes lithium-ion, which allow for quick charging and long-lasting power. To use the appliance, just charge the battery beforehand. Cordless kitchen appliances give you the flexibility to move about the kitchen with ease, without being tethered to an outlet.
3 TYPES OF CORDLESS KITCHEN APPLIANCES
KitchenAid offers three types of cordless kitchen appliances: cordless hand mixers, cordless food choppers and cordless hand blenders. Designed with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, these cordless appliances deliver optimal run time and performance, allowing you to go wherever your inspiration takes you in the kitchen. Read this guide to learn more about each of the KitchenAid® cordless appliances.
1. CORDLESS HAND MIXER
The KitchenAid® cordless hand mixer provides you all the power you expect without the cord. Designed with a lithium-ion battery, the cordless hand mixer allows you to make up to 200 cookies on a full charge* and the ability to move about the kitchen with ease. It has seven speeds to stir, mix, and whip all of your favorite recipes. Its stainless steel beaters are strong enough to mix even tough dough and batters. Designed to stand all on its own, the cordless hand mixer lifts the beaters up and out of the bowl and workspace and the soft start feature ensures smooth acceleration with every use.

2. CORDLESS FOOD CHOPPER
With the ability to chop up to forty onions* on a single charge, the KitchenAid® cordless food chopper is both powerful and portable. It features a multipurpose stainless steel blade that can chop, mince and puree ingredients with ease, and the included multi-purpose blade and whisk accessory conveniently fit inside the 5 cup work bowl.
*Based on onion size of 90-110 grams.
3. CORDLESS HAND BLENDER
The KitchenAid® cordless hand blender is a powerful and versatile kitchen appliance that makes tasks like blending, chopping and whisking simpler. Avoid transferring ingredients to a blender jar. Simply blend, puree or mix directly in the bowl, pot or cup of your choice from a single smoothie bottle to an entire pot of soup right on the stovetop. It also has variable speeds, allowing you to customize the speed according to the task you're tackling.

3 BENEFITS OF CORDLESS KITCHEN APPLIANCES
Cordless appliances offer greater portability and convenience and more flexibility in terms of placement. They also provide powerful results on just a single, quick charge of the battery. Read on to learn more about the benefits of adding KitchenAid® cordless appliances to your collection.
1. CORDLESS APPLIANCES ALLOW YOU TO COOK WHEREVER & HOWEVER YOU CHOOSE1
All the outlets tied up? Want to create where friends are gathered? Or maybe you just want to puree your sauce right in the saucepan, then toss the blender in a drawer when you’re done. By “cutting the electrical cord” you’re free to cook wherever inspiration takes you. When you’re not tethered to a power outlet you can move about your cooking space with ease and spontaneity and enjoy a more seamless workflow. By “unplugging” you can help eliminate the worry of dangling cords over hot pots of wet ingredients on the cooktop. You don’t have to be concerned about your cord getting tangled around that fresh batch of gazpacho. You can have the power you need without the limitations.
The Cordless Collection from KitchenAid lets cooks go cord-free in style with a cordless hand blender, five-cup food chopper and 7 speed hand mixer – all available in seven statement making colors.
1. Indoor use only.
2. THE CORDLESS DESIGN LETS YOU UNPLUG AND UNCLUTTER
Not only has cordless innovation changed the way we cook, it’s transformed the way the kitchen looks as well. Fewer cords create a sleeker, less cluttered kitchen with more valuable countertop real estate which can help make even the tiniest kitchens feel more spacious. All three appliances in the KitchenAid® Cordless Collection are lightweight and have slim, modern lines for a fresh, clean look. The hand mixer’s been designed with a flat base so it can stand on its own and it features a soft start option to bring the beaters up to speed slowly to prevent splattering. The cordless hand blender is equipped with a handy blade guard to help protect your favorite cookware.
The sleek lines of these appliances make them perfect for displaying right on the countertop or tuck them away easily in a cabinet or drawer; no cord means they’re easier to store. The food chopper even comes with a case to really step up the neatness factor.
3. BATTERY-POWERED CORDLESS APPLIANCES CHARGE FAST FOR POWERFUL RESULTS
The three product offerings in the battery-operated KitchenAid® Cordless Collection come with a charger that’s compatible with the products’ rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Each can go from empty to full in two hours or less and each has a quick charge of up to 10 minutes so you can quickly finish chopping those onions or mixing that cookie batter if your charge starts to run low. There’s also a handy power indicator light that lets you know when it’s time to recharge.
