Kitchenaid Stand Mixer in "antique green?"

LaureltQ | Jan 29, 201109:35 AM

My mom bought this mixer in the late 90's. It's the Ultra-Power model with a 300 watt motor. It came with a 4.5 qt bowl as well as a much smaller one (3 qt?) I picked it out because it's the same color as the one Martha was using at the time. I received it as a gift from her after blowing through 2 artisan mixers in 3 years. It's held up much better than the others, despite taking more abuse than the other two combined.

What the heck is this color called and why can't I find photos of it online? I think it's fantastic, and although I'm fed up with KA's customer service, I'd like to find other appliances in this same color family to replace the red that I'm currently sporting. I believe that this particular mixer is one of the junky Kitchenaid built stand mixers, not one of the indestructible Hobarts.

Any human KA encyclopedias here?

It's not the "green," "pistachio," or the new robin's egg blue-green that Martha's been pimping lately.
