About this deal

Not everyone will want a mixer this big but if you do a lot of baking it's a great piece of kit for the money.

Good Housekeeping participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites. I've also found that the attachments don't quite touch the bottom of the bowl, so if you're planning on using the mixer on small ingredient quantities (such as to whip ½ cup of heavy cream or to beat 2 egg whites) the attachments will miss the ingredients and nothing will happen. To lower the head, depress the head lock button and gently push the head down to the lower locked position.By doing this, not only are you helping to support Pink Recipe Box, but you're also supporting me, putting food on my table and helping me keep the lights on! The mixer comes complete with a Food Mixer Cookbook , packed with delicious recipes for breads and cakes. It is a bit noisy if you put it on high, and the lifting mechanism has become a little stiff on mine. The metal flat beater does not come very close to the side but the flexi one does so it's fine to use with batter.

The unlimited uses will see your stand mixer being used to create all types of home baking favourites.Without giving anything away, the recipe book features sweet and savoury recipes, including breads, crackers, crumbles, cakes, cookies, pastries, muffins and bars. Cookies, meringues, scones, cupcakes, fresh homemade bread and whipped creams can all be produced with ease. A timeless design meets unparalleled functionality, setting new standards for home bakers and cooks.

Some bakers and cooks don't like the loss of the hands-on experience, but the amount of time and energy saved by using a mixer like this is a very persuasive reason to get one for most people.We found the sheer power of the mixer impressive, and good suction grips on the base keep the mixer secure when mixing so it doesn't jump around. The dough hook and beater blade are made from special aluminum which is perfect for making breads and cakes. I found that you have to fit it to the top mechanism and then BEFORE you start mixing, lower the tool in to the bowl and then jiggle the guard down until it sits neatly on the bowl, use a tea towel to cover the hole where you can add extra ingredients, and almost nothing escapes. It was rather annoying, but after a few months struggling with it, the problem sorted out itself, which was really bizarre, but since everything was ok I kept using it up until recently, it started to release black dust out from where the whisk/beater connects with the machine and eventually has stopped working altogether.
