During the past 5 years I've gone through two NEW and expensive LG and a Bosch, both have had major failures that were cost prohibitive to repair. I've been using an older Whirlpool that actually works well, but my dream is to find a vintage KitchenAid. For months i've been looking for a KitchenAid KDS-18 or newer but can't seem to find one... I live in Northern California and have been searching on Craigslist, FB Marketplace and here with no luck. A while ago an AW member from the Bay area had a Stainless Superba for sale, but I can't seem to find the post...probably long gone!

Please let me know if you have any suggestions, or happen to have one for sale!

Thank you :)

Start checking Craigslist for every community within an hours radius, especially old neighborhoods. Some uninformed individual is always throwing out a low mileage appliance to replace it with new junk "just because".

Aggregator of online classified advertisements and you can set search radiuses.

Jeff, what part of Northern California are you in?


I have a KDS-21 Monterey that needs a new wash arm support, and two ISE Classic Supremes (KA clones) in working order, which do everything a KDS-22 does, except for the sani-rinse.  I have one set of stainless panels to fit any of those three machines (currently on one of the Supremes).


Tell me about the Whirlpool you're currently using.  I might be interested in a trade.
