Superb alternative to a Kitchaid
11 April 2014
A Kitchenaid mixer is completely our of my price range at the moment so this looked like a good alternative.
I absolutely love it and, to be honest, think I prefer it to my friends Kitchenaid!
It's very light, so much easier to move about the kitchen, but has suckers on the bottom to secure onto the countertop. I have never had any issues with it moving around whilst in use.
The mixing bowl is a great size and is completely smooth inside - there isn't an inset circle at the bottom where batter can get stuck in the join.
The cover that comes down when you lower the arm is a superb addition and I couldn't do without it now - I make a lot of buttercream and icing sugar puffs up all over the place in a normal mixer - the cover keeps it all at bay. I have used it to make very small amounts of buttercream and it does so with ease.
The bowl, attachment and cover all come off very easily for cleaning.
The additional bits and bobs that come with the mixer are neither here nor there - the pointless cook book and stupidly large spatula are both sitting in the cupboard doing nothing. I did buy a dust cover for the mixer - about £7 - which keeps the dust off between uses.
Would definitely recommend this to the price conscious...and actually to anyone looking for a great mixer!
