If you've ever felt tethered by your stand mixer or blender's power cord, KitchenAid has heard your cries. Today the company announced the Cordless Collection, a line of cordless small appliances including a cordless hand blender, five-cup food chopper and seven-speed hand mixer.
This is the first set of cordless appliances, from a company not known for going cord-free. KitchenAid does sell a five-speed cordless hand blender for $330 (approximately £260 or AU$520), but that's it when it comes to cordless power. The Cordless Collection comes just two days after the announcement of Dyson's cordless Corrale hair straightener, another home appliance powered by batteries.

KitchenAid's Cordless Collection includes a charger that's compatible with all three products' Lithium-Ion batteries. Each can go from empty to full charge in two hours or less, according to KitchenAid. There's a battery indicator light to signal power levels.
You'll have seven colors to choose from in the collection: Black Matte, Blue Velvet, Empire Red, Matte Charcoal Grey, Onyx Black, Passion Red and White. Here's a quick rundown of features from the KitchenAid announcement:
