The KitchenAid certification means a lot.  It is your guarantee that the AES appliance technician servicing your appliance has gone through rigorous factory training and testing in order to bring high quality service to your home.  It also means that AES is now your go-to home appliance repair company when making recall repairs.

As KitchenAid brings best-in-class craftsmanship to its line of cooking and cleaning appliances, AES brings the same attention to detail to its installation, repair and troubleshooting as the brand brings to is product.  Some of KitchenAid’s popularity is due to its sponsorship of the PBS cooking show, “Home Cooking” which starred celebrity chefs Julia Child and Martha Stewart.

KitchenAid expanded beyond mixers in 1949 with a foray into dishwashers which proved successful and by 1985, the company had purchased Chambers Company and incorporated its range of cooking appliances into the KitchenAid brands and added refrigerators into their product line in 1986. In the 1990s added small appliances.  It expanded its retail exposure by point-of-purchase exposure at William-Sonoma, Kohl’s, Target, Macy’s and other department stores.
