The Pick & Mix Collection from Breville brings on-trend 1950's retro style into your kitchen - featuring pretty pastels you can pick and mix from 3 stylish colours including Strawberry Cream, Pistachio and Vanilla Cream - all designed to complement each other perfectly, whether you choose one colour or a mix of all 3.
The Breville Pistachio Twin Motor Stand and Hand Mixer VFP061 from the Pick & Mix Collection brings a vintage vibe to a high performing mixer, keeping your kitchen as creative as your cooking.
For foodies with a sweet tooth, this mixer can take the slog out of baking, stepping in to help mix cake mixtures and icing and whip egg whites, cream and batters. For savoury food fans, this mixer can be used to mash potatoes without breaking a sweat, knead dough or make homemade dips, sauces and mayonnaise.
Being larger than a basic hand mixer, this mixer is great for heavier mixing jobs. Thanks to the freestanding unit, you can add additional ingredients or control the speed while the unit is in motion.
This mixer has a patented twin motor. One motor powers the beaters, the other rotates the bowl. By rotating the bowl, the beaters can reach a greater area within it, so your food is more efficiently and thoroughly mixed. Two rotating speeds offer greater control. The motor is 380 watts. Ten speeds give you the most appropriate degree of mixing for your cooking needs.
The mixing bowl is made from stainless steel for durability and has a capacity of 2 litres for liquids and 1 kilogram for dry food. A beater ejector push button allows for easy cleaning.
If you fancy using something smaller and more lightweight, the mixer is detachable. For increased control, it can also be used like a traditional hand mixer.

How ever, if you are a dabbler in home made baking or are starting out and don't want to spend a fortune, this will do very nicely thank you. It also has the benefit of the conversion into a hand mixer if required.
I'll ignore the colour as that is simply a matter of personal choice and there are alternative colours available. As to the usage:
Very small quantities do not mix well as, when in the holder, the mixing blades are a little short of the bowl bottom, you can, however, easily get over this by removing the mixer from it's base and use it as a hand appliance with the mix placed in a normal mixing bowl. Larger quantities seemed to mix well and, although I've not yet tried bread, I note than another reviewer has and has found it quite acceptable and I have no reason to disbelieve the reviewer.
The mixer has 10 speeds and the bowl 2 so the user can have no excuse for not mixing in accordance with any recipe. You are limited in how much/how large a mix to make as the bowl is only capable of dealing with 2 ltrs liquid/1kg dry food, but the size is good enough for the smaller family. The fact that the mixer has twin motors one for the bowl one for the mixer, being only 380 watts compared to 1200+ of the 'professional' models, doesn't mean it lacks power. I have yet to find it labouring whilst mixing.
So why 4 and not 5 stars?Read more ›
The mixer is quite small, and so you won't be able to batch bake in this, but it's big enough for a tray of cupcakes or muffins, or a standard size cake. The benefit of it being smaller than other types is that it's light enough to lift in and out of the cupboard easily. The fact that the hand mixer detaches is useful as it means that you don't have to buy a separate one.
The mixer has 10 speeds, so you have quite a lot of control, and the bowl also rotates which means that less mixture gets caught around the sides. The whisks are perfectly capable - I've used better mixers, but for the price this is fairly efficient and will get the job done. I haven't used the dough hooks yet but it seems from other reviews that these are quite effective too.
This product is really for those who want something small, cute and easy to manage. You don't have to pay much more to get a considerably larger mixer with more functions and excellent reviews - check out the Andrew James range for good value mixers. But if you're happy with a smaller capacity, this is a nice little item.
