Artisan Mixer Appears on Frasier

I was watching a rerun of Frasier on Channel 4 this morning while eating breakfast in my polka-dot jammies.

I thoroughly recommend this practice by the way but that’s not the point.

This was the episode ”A Lilith Thanksgiving” (Series 4 Episode 7), acknowledged as one of the classics. This is the one where Lilith and Frasier join forces to try to get their son accepted at a very posh Boston school. It’s set during Thanksgiving, so there are plenty scenes in Lilith’s Bostonian kitchen.

She has a lovely kitchen, very much in the New England style, with lots of wood, shelves and understated quality kitchen tools:

Have you spotted it yet?

That’s a white Artisan mixer on the right hand side behind Niles (photographs courtesy: Channel 4).

It’s perfectly in keeping with the feeling of understated wealth which Lilith represents. I think the Artisan is a little close to the refrigerator – a bit awkward to raise the mixer.

Here’s a better shot of Niles with the white Artisan:

Admittedly, Lilith’s Artisan is not as prominent in the plot as the turkey she forces Niles to prepare, but you can see it is used here to establish a little bit about Lilith’s personality. She may be a Bostonian ice queen, but she sure has a lovely kitchen. The choice of white is very classy and again, understated.

I will leave the last word to Lilith and one of Bebe Neuwirth’s superb cold stares:

No doubt Lilith would don blue plastic gloves before touching the Artisan, but I like the fact that she is comfortable in her own kitchen – even when Frasier is there.
