Concerns Existing Users Have about This Product
Something that may be a concern here is that there are similar products by KitchenAid and selecting the same featured products from the same maker but at different prices creates confusion for buyers.
Don't be. The BL and SS letter codes at the back of the model determine the colors. BL stands for black and SS for stainless steel. Just pick the one you want. Obviously stainless steel is more pricey but more elegant, easy to use and other features usually come with stainless steel.
