Put some shine in your kitchen with a silver KitchenAid mixer. Get a Contour Silver, Metallic Chrome or stainless steel mixer model as the finish on these stand mixers has a bright sheen. The kitchenaid mixer silver shades would blend well in kitchens that have big stainless steel or chrome finished appliances like refrigerators and dishwashers and stoves.
It’s like a whole kitchen full of bling! 🙂
The Chrome KitchenAid Mixer Magic
If you like the classic chrome look, consider one of these three KitchenAid Metallic Chrome stand mixers.
All three of these metallic chrome KitchenAid mixers have a 5 quart mixing bowl with a polished stainless steel finish that is dishwasher safe. The Professional 5 Plus model has what is called a wide mouth bowl, so that bowl is a little bigger around than the others.
Each of these models utilizes 10 speeds to give you all the versatility you could ask for in mixing slow or fast, with the power to gently mix something, or speed it up and really whip the dickens out of it! Whip meringue, knead bread… a KitchenAid stand mixer has got you covered.
And all these metallic chrome kitchenaid mixer models have a power hub that can be used to hook up around 15 various attachments. You can add pasta makers, juicers, slicers, meat grinders and more as optional attachments for specialized kitchen work.
The first of these mixers, shown on the left, is one of the popular Artisan series of mixers. This line is a bestseller for KitchenAid because it combines the power and versatility of a Kitchen Aid stand mixer with affordability.
The Professional 5 Plus Kitcheanaid mixer chrome model is shown in the middle of the picture and has a bigger motor, plus comes with a spiral bread hook, while the other two models make use of the C-shaped bread hook as shown in the picture to the right.
The Custom Metallic Mixer shown on the right in the picture has pretty much the same features and specifications as the Artisan series of mixers. It just has a little different finish.
Here’s a comparison of the 3 KitchenAid metallic Chrome models of mixers so you can see side-by-side what each one offers:
As you can see in the comparison, the one other difference I haven’t mentioned yet between the Professional 5 Plus mixer and the other two (Artisan and Custom Metallic) is the fact it utilizes a 67 touch point planetary mixing action, as opposed to the 59-points of the other two. This means that each time the beater goes around inside the bowl, it touches the sides 67 times or 59 times.
This type of mixing action ensures that the ingredients get really mixed up, so there’s no pockets of stuff that didn’t get blended in. Everything will be well stirred up!
I didn’t include the prices in the comparison chart, because they do change from time to time. Also, KitchenAid does occasionally discontinue certain models of mixers, but they will continue to be available for sometime until vendors run out of them.

So if you want a chrome finish type stand mixer, any one of those three would certainly be a good choice.
Contour Silver Artisan Stand Mixer
The Artisan series has more colors than any other model, so it’s not surprising it has more than one shade of silver.
It has pretty much the same features and specifications of all the Artisan mixers, so you can check the spreadsheet above to see what to expect when buying one of these stand mixers.
Super Silver Metallic KitchenAid Stand Mixer Models
Would you rather have a straight silver finish instead of chrome? KitchenAid has you covered! Here’s a couple of silver metallic kitchenaid mixer models you could consider.
First off, the popular Artisan mixer series has a silver metallic color as shown in the picture below:
It comes with the usual flat beater, dough hook, wire whip and pouring shield. It’s a tilt-head style mixer, and has the power hub for attachments.
This KitchenAid stand mixer uses a lifting mechanism to move the bowl up and down instead of the head tilting back. It has the usual 5-quart stainless steel bowl, plus a burnished flat beater, burnished dough hook, and wire whip. As you can see from the picture to the left, it also has a one-piece pouring shield.
There is another option, the KitchenAid KSM85 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer in Silver Metallic. But here’s the thing, it only has a 4.5-quart bowl as compared to the 5-quart bowl of the other mixers. Also, this particular stand mixer only has a 300 watt motor as compared to the 325 watt motor on the Artisan series.
The mixer body is about the same size for both mixers, so you don’t really save any counter space by buying the KSM85 4.5-quart mixer.They are the same height, so it wouldn’t make it any easier to slide 4.5-qt. mixer under the upper cupboard.
So considering the mixers are also about the same price, I just can’t see any reason to buy the smaller bowled mixer over the Artisan. It seems to me you’d be better off getting the more powerful motor and a little bigger mixer bowl for about the same price and mixer size.
But hey! It’s your preference!

Sugar Pearl KitchenAid Mixer Models
This particular finish comes on 3 different KitchenAid stand mixers: the Artisan, Professional 6500 Design Series, and the 7 Quart Pro Line.
The Artisan Design series is a little different from the regular Artisan mixers as it comes with a glass bowl instead of a stainless steel mixing bowl. There are graduated measurements on the side of the glass bowl, though frankly, I prefer to measure stuff before putting it in the bowl. Still, it could be useful to see how much mixture you have when you’re done mixing all the ingredients of a recipe together.
Otherwise, it has a burnished metal flat beater, burnished metal dough hook, and wire whip, plus a tilt-head and power hub like all the other Artisan KitchenAid mixers.
This is also the cheapest of the three KitchenAid Sugar Pearl Silver mixer models, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a really good mixer! It just has the smallest mixing bowl.
Pictured in the middle in the picture above is the KitchenAid Professional 6500 Design Series in Sugar Pearl Silver. This model mixer has a lift Stand Mixer with 6 Quart Glass Bowl. It’s a classy looking even heavier-duty stand mixer than the Artisan. Biggest differences between the two is the size of the mixing bowl (Artisan with 5-qt, Pro 6500 with 6-qt) and the fact that the Artisan has the tilt back mixer head, whereas the head is stationary on the Pro 6500, and instead the bowl lifts up and down.
Pictured on the right side of the above graphic is the KitchenAid 7-Quart Pro Line Stand Mixer. This mixer comes with a Powerknead Spiral Dough Hook, Flat Beater, and Stainless Steel Wire Whip. As noted, it also has the biggest sized bowl of the three, since it will hold 7 quarts. One thing of note is that some users consider this mixer to be much quieter than the 600 series, so if that is of interest to you, it makes this bigger mixer even more attractive.
It’s also worth noting that the prices between the Professional 6500 Design sugar pearl mixer and the 7-qt. Pro Line mixer are usually near the same cost. The Design series mixers with the glass bowls are always a little more expensive than the regular mixers with metal bowls, so that it what brings the prices of the two close together.
That means for about the same price, the choice between the 2 bigger mixers is essentially whether you want a 6-quart glass bowl, or a 7-quart metal bowl.
Any one of these silver Kitchenaid mixer models would work well in your kitchen, so it’s just a matter of finding the one you like best!
If you like the silver shades, you might also want to look at the gray shades of KitchenAid stand mixers, as they are pretty similar, and if you’re partial to gray, you might see one you like there. (The Artisan Imperial Gray is a good choice!)

Did you know you can colorize your own edible sugar pearls? Maybe that’s where KitchenAid got the idea for the names of these shades, since they look like metal sugar pearls.
