The piece: KitchenAid Custom Metallic 5-Qt. Mixer
The price: $600, originally $650
Why we want it: It's no secret we're copper crazy, so you can image how excited we were to move from pots and pans to something completely unexpected. Besides the fact that it would pair perfectly with our fantasy kitchen lighting, this warm metallic mixer is the type of cooking equipment that design buffs and foodies can embrace — and heck, even leave out on the counter. It's the same reliable KitchenAid you grew up with (just take a peek at the ratings), only in a much chicer package. Even if your cookies never taste as good as grandma's, this flashy model will ensure you look good while you're making them!
