KitchenAid Pear = Bad '70s Flashback

A few weeks back we received a press release introducing us to the wonders of the "fresh, new color from KitchenAid." This color, while called "pear," looks decidedly more like the pukey green avocado color that was all the rage in the '70s. Even if this new green shade is a little, tiny bit yellower, I don't think the name change justifies unleashing this color on the public. No word yet on if any one is actually buying any food processors, blenders or mixers in the new color, which has been on sale since June.
