KitchenAid received its first U.S. patent in 1919 for the Model H-5 stand mixer, an 80-quart electronic mixer for professional bread bakers. American home cooks quickly caught on to the brand’s ingeniously efficient appliances and by the early ’20s, modern women were singing the praises of the company’s food-prep wonders that could beat, cream, blend, slice, grind, and strain. Today, KitchenAid stands as the gold standard for chefs, with its machines dominating both the large appliance and countertop markets. And despite its success, KitchenAid continues to innovate, with recent launches including an induction cooktop and a first-of-its-kind wall oven.
