Can anyone recommend me one please? No idea what I'm looking for! I don't bake that often but hope to start more when I start maternity leave this week! I've only used hand whisks before. I've browsed amazon but they all have similar mixed reviews. Don't want to spend a fortune when i might not use it that much but maybe £80 max?

We have a Kenwood Chef "Premier" which is excellent. It took over after our original K Chef burned out (after about 15 years). It was in the sale at Curry's and cost about £130 which is less than 1/3rd the cost of a Kitchenaid.
I did use a Kitchenaid at a cookery class on Friday and it was good, but not three times as good!

I have a Morphy Richards stand mixer from Argos, it was under £100 and is actually more powerful than a KitchenAid. I make bread with it most days and (crossed fingers) it has never faltered in the 2 years I've had it.
Love the Kenwood mixers but never found a good deal on the price.

I've just seen a kenwood prospero in John Lewis for £99. 900w motor, 4.3L bowl, three attachments? Is this a good one? Seems to be the budget kenwood but I'm after a good size bowl.

I've had a kenwood prospero for about five years and it's excellent.

It looks really good silverlegobrick and really £100 is quite reasonable isn't it? My wee mixer I had was too small to cope with the cakes I was making and sadly packed in last night, though it was only £20 out of lidl so not too sad! Plus a good excuse to get a new one! Lol

Reviews are excellent and there's always a discount code knocking about for this site.
