The Cotter Crunch studio remodel is 100-percent complete, so now it’s time to share the KitchenAid kitchen reveal with you. This studio kitchen is like nothing you have ever seen before – filled to the brim with gorgeous and functional kitchen appliances from KitchenAid!
For over five years, I have had a dream to create a studio space where people of all ages can gather, learn and grow from one another. I wanted the space to be an inspiration to others – a place for dreams to become realities, especially dreams for creative growth. I talk a lot about my vision in my studio reveal post.
I decided to name the Cotter Crunch Studio “the gathering place.” Why? Because in this space, I want any and ALL together. Whether you’re gathering with people to catch up over coffee, around the dinner table, hosting a workshop, or gathering in the kitchen for some delicious taste-testing and food, all are welcome!
Now that being said, let’s talk about the KITCHEN!
KitchenAid Kitchen Reveal (VIDEO)
Ya’ll, the entire studio is amazing, but OH, the kitchen – it’s truly my favorite part of the studio! It is so much more than a functional space to create and share delicious food. It’s a learning center where my passion for cooking, food styling and food photography come together to be shared easily with everyone and anyone.
And what makes it even more magical is that the entire vision of wanting to create this space came to life with the help of KitchenAid – they made it all happen!! Everything from the large appliances, like a state-of-the-art wall oven, cooktop with downdraft, and French door refrigerator, to the small appliances like the classic KitchenAid® Stand Mixer with amazing attachments and the newest food processor model.
The KitchenAid Appliances
I think you are going to love the features of these appliances as much as I do. Don’t be surprised if after seeing how KitchenAid appliances can make your culinary dreams come true, you want to book some “me” time in the studio. 😉 Let me share the details of some of these amazing appliances with you.
Smart Oven+ 30” Single Oven with Powered Attachments
If you own a KitchenAid® Stand Mixer, you already know how the brand brings versatility with interchangeable attachments. Part of the magic of the Smart Oven+ is that it’s not just an oven, it’s a suite of appliances in one, including:
- Oven-powered grill
- Baking stone
The powered attachments* are designed to expand a cook’s capabilities by working with the oven as an integrated system. You guys, the attachments are interchangeable! The grill, glazed ceramic baking stone, and steamer attachments fit interchangeably with the oven-powered heating element and base pan.
*GRILL SHIPS WITH OVEN. CONNECT, CALL OR REGISTER TO GET BAKING STONE AND STEAMER BY MAIL AT NO ADDITIONAL COST. Allow 10-15 days for delivery. Visit kitchenaid.com/redeemfor full details.
Oh, and you can control your oven whether you are in or OUT of the kitchen with the KitchenAid mobile app.
It lets you remotely monitor and control the oven by letting you know when it’s time to tend to the food. Or, you can enter your own cooking instructions and save them for next time. You can control your oven with simple voice commands through your Google Assistant or an Alexa-enabled device. And download the Yummly® app and search “KitchenAid” to find 90 attachment-ready recipes that will open up even more culinary possibilities!
French Door Refrigerator – 22 cu. ft.
I’ve had serious KitchenAid fridge envy for years and friends, now it’s your turn to be envious! First of all, this French Door Refrigerator is so gorgeous, it’s practically a work of art. It comes in white, stainless, or black stainless (the black has a PrintShield™ finish – to keep fingerprints under control.)
We have the stainless finish in the studio and it radiates a mixed statement of elegance, professionalism, and friendly cheerfulness. I think that describes ME pretty well too, don’t you?
Some of my favorite features of the KitchenAid French door refrigerator include:
- ExtendFresh™ Temperature Management System – This fridge has two sensors; one for the fridge and one in the freezer. Genius, right? No more half frozen juice or kombucha in the back half of my fridge shelves, thank you very much!
- Produce Preserver – Do you know that ethylene gas exists naturally in many fruits and vegetables? It’s what causes them to ripen so quickly. There’s a little control unit located in the produce drawer that absorbs ethylene gas, so the shelf life is extended. Isn’t that brilliant?!
36″ Electric Downdraft Cooktop with 5 Elements
If you think electric/glass cooktops are out of style and not as functional as gas, this KitchenAid Electric Downdraft Cooktop is going to prove you wrong. It is five burners of AMAZING technology and efficiency!
- 6” Even-Heat™ Element with Melt Setting – This element allows you to toss out that double boiler taking up space in your cabinets. Melting chocolate in a saucepan is easy breezy and the chocolate won’t scorch!
- 10″ Even-Heat™ Ultra Element with Simmer Settings – Even-Heat™ Technology maintains a constant supply of power so you can have more than one simmer setting option. High simmer, medium simmer, or “how low can you go” simmer!
- Downdraft Ventilation – The ventilation system is built right into the cooking surface so that you don’t need a separate hood.
Kitchen Reveal – Small Appliances
3/4-Horsepower Continuous Feed Food Waste Disposer
Thanks to this KitchenAid® garbage disposal, the unpleasant smell of perished food and garbage will never be an issue in this studio. Haha!

In addition to those major appliances, the studio kitchen has a boatload of new small kitchen appliances too. You can learn about all of them in the studio reveal post, but here are a few of my favorites.
Tilt Head 5 Qt. Artisan Stand Mixer PLUS Attachments
KitchenAid delivered on the goods for a high powered Artisan Series 5 Quart tilt Head Stand Mixer, but I ALSO have attachments for it! My recipe development juices are overflowing with ideas! I can’t wait to develop recipes that will incorporate the use of:
Yes, I know you’re jealous. Haha.
7-Cup Food Processor
The 7 Cup Food Processor is SO easy to use. It has a one-click bowl assembly (no more twisting the bowl to remove it from the base!) There’s also a latched lid that is very easy to use & clean. On top of that, the blade and disc fit inside the bowl to make storage easy. The one in the studio is silver, but there are four other colors to choose from.
The Other Small Appliances:
Is this not the most amazing kitchen reveal EVER?! Thank you SO much, KitchenAid!
