Let’s learn about the history of Kitchen Aid before you get to know the types of Kitchen Aid Appliances. KitchenAid was founded in 1919 as a subsidiary of the Hobart Corporation. Whirlpool purchased the company in 1989. Whirlpool manufactures the majority of KitchenAid’s large appliance line. Although KitchenAid is owned by Whirlpool, their small appliances are manufactured by other companies including WC Wood and In-Sink-Erator. The KitchenAid brand is sold by most major retailers, including Sears and Home Depot, as well as small local manufacturers that carry other Whirlpool products. KitchenAid also brands a line of cookware, which is produced by the Meyer Corporation. Meyer also produces brands such as Analon and Farberware.
